Giveaway Day!

Welcome new visitors to my blog!  


Tomorrow is Giveaway Day on the Sew Mama Sew website where they post three different lists of bloggers all around the world whom are giving away sewing and sewing related items.  This year I decided to join in.  

I am giving away Elizabeth Hartman's The Practical Guide to Patchwork: New Basics for the Modern Quiltmaker.   Her Kitchen Window quilt is on the short list of quilts I want to make this year.
There's more!  

I am also giving away 15 fat quarters of fabric.  All were purchases from the Fat Quarter Shop's Fat Quarter Bonanza back when I first began quilting and I went kind of crazy with fabric purchases.  11 of the fat quarters appear to be Susan Branch fabric and one is definitely Tufted Tweets by Laurie Wishbrun.  The other three are mysteries to me.    
11 Fat Quarters - Susan Branch fabric

Tufted Tweets on left
To win the book and fabric please leave a comment about anything: , the weather (no more, please!) your favorite food, the worst boss you ever had, your first love, etc.

Please make sure if you leave a comment that I can reply to you!  EDIT: As of almost 10am Pacific Time, I have already had seven people who are no-reply bloggers - please check your status or leave your e-mail address in your comment. I want everyone to have the opportunity to win.  

This giveaway is open to everyone and I will ship internationally.  This giveaway will be open until Monday, May 30th at 6am Pacific Time.  

Good luck!
Susan    

 P.S.  Yoga Retreat blog post coming soon.  It was a blast!

  44. Worst boss I ever had...
    used to sit in our break room and watch movies.

    Sounds fine, right.

    Well, he used to pick movies with graphic sex scenes...then rewind and turn up the volume when those scenes came on.

    Nasty.

  52. Haha! The worst boss! I used to be a tall ship sailor and had a captain who was awful! Once, when I informed him that the order he had given me was in violation of international law, he told me that it was above my pay grade to think about such things. Needless to say, I left at the next port. Glad to have that behind me! Thanks for the chance to win!

  54. The worst boss I ever had was this short odd man who I think was on a power trip. It was rumored he was having affairs with multiple coworkers of mine. And he was married. Also . . . he was really mean.

    That got really negative really quick didn't it? Sorry!

The new boss spent all of her time looking for ways to travel out of the states on the agencies money. Seriously, that's all she did. One time she had to settle for Hawaii. And we wonder why the governments are so broke.

  136. I've been very lucky on the bosses front. In fact, I think my first one spoiled me. It was a retail job with all the fun that entails, and he flat-out told me that he'd never ask me to do anything he wouldn't deign to do himself (such as clean the employee's restroom). I knew he'd always have my back, and in turn he got an employee who did went above and beyond and did a darn good job.
