Christmas Giveaway



Welcome to my little corner of the Sew Mama Sew giveaway day. If you are new to my blog, thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy your visit. My name is Susan, and as the blog title suggests, I am a Canadian living abroad - in the UK to be more precise. I spend my time here being a full-time mum to two girls - and sewing, cooking, baking, crocheting, and spending hours pondering what to make rather than actually making.

Today I would like to give away something in the spirit of Christmas. A little bit of extra decoration for your home.

First up is a candlemat. Or a giant mug rug. Or a mini quilt. Really, if you win, it is entirely up to you how you decide to use it.

I know there are two candlemats here, but there will only be one in the prize package.

For your tree I have three little felt ornaments.


Next up is a mini crochet star bunting. I tried this pattern for the first time two days ago and I love it! It is about one metre from the left-hand star to the right-hand star.


Last, but not least, is this wee 6" Christmas tree hoop.



That's it. Four items, one person can win them all. Rules? None. The giveaway is open internationally. One comment, one chance to win. No hoops to jump through (other than the one I am giving away). Please ensure that you are not a no reply commenter. If you are unsure of this then put your email address in the comment. If I am unable to contact you I will redraw for someone I can.  The draw will take place on Friday, December 7th at 9am BST. I will endeavour to get the package in the post as soon as possible thereafter so that these decorations can be part of your holiday celebrations this year.


I do my best to reply to comments as often as possible, but in the case of this giveaway I can make no promises. Thank you for stopping by, and for putting your name in the hat - if indeed you did so.

Comments are now closed. A huge thank you to everyone who put their name in the hat! 

Susan
