Giveaway Day!

Hello there and welcome to my giveaway. I have something extra special for you, today. Not just regular crafty goodness, but what I think is a top notch prize. I admit,though, I do have an ulterior motive. Do you want the check out the prize first? Okay. Me, too. To enter to win, all you have to do is leave me a comment. If you have run out of things to say, you could tell me what your favorite quick summer dinner is. Or if you are one of those southern hemisphere types, what your favorite winter dinner is. Now, I'm not the type to offer second entries, but today I am. You don't have to be a follower, you just have to read all the way to the end to find out how to get your second entry. Ready? Here comes the good stuff:

Imagine you see before you one of those Price is Right models. Got it? Okay. I don't look a thing like that. You could imagine that Sarah Jessica Parker and Marty Feldman had a baby girl and it grew up to be me, but that's a little scary, no? Better you stick with the Price is Right model.

You have made it to the showcase showdown and the model pushes a cart before you. Upon it at are three mid century acrylic canisters. Ah, here they are.


You notice they are made by Kartell in Italy. While they are probably not valuable, they are pretty and nice to look at, and they would look fabulous on your sewing table. You pick one up and open it.


Inside, you see a stack of trim. What's this? chenille ric rac and some real-100% cotton-made-by-hand bias tape? Woohoo! You love bias tape. Even if you know you'll never use it because it is so pretty, you most definitely need this bias tape. Some crazy whale ribbon that must be vintage by now and 3 yards of  hemmed ruffled trim. Um... Ruffles? "What in the world is she thinking?" you wonder.  But upon more careful thought, you realize that you don't use ruffles because you don't have a ruffle foot, and honestly  isn't it just a pain in the rear to do all that ruffling? So really there are any number of things you could do with ruffles, but you never have because you can't be bothered to make it. Inspiration hits! smashes you in the brain! like a fancy fast sporty bulldozer! "Of course! I'll make a  _________ !" What a good plan that is. And by golly here are four spools of Pearl 8 and some rainbow thread for good measure. Yum!

You open the next canister, and it is full of scraps. Small-but-not-too-tiny scraps.


 You decide you will make a bunch of hexagons with them, and wonder if hexagons are passé. Finally, you decide that even if hexagons are passé, you will make them anyway, unless the scraps are too pretty to use in which case they will just sit there looking pretty. Which is, you know in your heart of hearts, quite likely.

Wondering what more could possibly  be in store, you carefully open the last canister.  Inside...


felted cord and felted balls, and some vintage linens. You could surely think of something to do with those things, right? And lastly, you see that  there is a little hand sewn pouch you hadn't noticed initially. Made of recycled wool and sewn entirely with a needle, thread, and two hands. It isn't perfect, but you note that there is something quite charming about it. As you feel it, you note that there is a card inside. It feels like a... yes, it surely must be... a gift card. What store is it for? How much is on it? There is no way of knowing until you open the pouch. You reach for the zipper and...

you wake up.

Mean, I know.

So here's the thing. You get one entry for free. If you would like a second entry, you can follow this link to see what my darling daughter is up to, and post about it on your blog. Go ahead and borrow one picture if you like, and of course please link back as well. That will get you your second entry.And this year? Winner will be chosen by my friend Random Number Generator. I learned my lesson last year.

And lastly, Happy Giveaway Day to all!
