Giveaway Day

I thought it would be fun to take part in the Giveaway Day being organised on Sewmamasew, so first of all I'd like to say 'Hello' if you're visiting here for the first time because of that. What with Christmas looming and trying to make some presents I knew I wouldn't have time to make anything to giveaway (I'll leave that for an occasion like my 100th post or anniversary) so I looked through my stash and picked out these lovely, co-ordinating, jewel-coloured pieces of fabric. The colours are actually much more vibrant in 'real life', I'm afraid it hasn't been good weather for photo taking lately! In fact, it's been thoroughly diabolical. The daylight, yesterday, hardly rose above a grey gloom for the whole day.

This little pile didn't seem much to offer so I went on another rummage and came up with a few more bits and pieces to add. There are buttons, binding, ribbon and a little frame; some of which match the fabric.

I didn't even know I had these little white rose buttons! They are lovely and quite dainty.

Now for some details as per Sewmamasew:
-
Anyone who makes a comment on this post will be entered into the draw.
Closing time for entries is 6th December.
I will pick a winner at random on Monday 7th December.
The package will be posted by 12 December.
I'm sorry but I'm afraid this draw is only open to UK based entrants.
-
I hope this little selection will be useful to someone and am looking forward to making a little connection with someone else who has a passion for stitching.
-
Bye for now

the bluish greenish jade type colour is my favourite colour. and those rose buttons are sooooo sweet.

i know you won't be shipping internationally, but if (by some miracle :-) )my number got picked might my sister (in london) receive it for me to forward to me?
