Sew Grateful Week – sewing giveaway


When Debi announced that she was hosting Sew Grateful Week during 6-12 February, I just knew I had to jump on board and express my gratitude to the online stitching community. I had always intended on a giveaway for my Birthday, which is on Thursday, so it seems like the stars have aligned for this one! 

I'm 'sew grateful' for very many things, but today I want to take the time to say a special thanks to you my dear readers. I want you to know that I appreciate each and every one of your comments and that the encouragement and advice you continue to give me is priceless.

 

And because actions speak louder than words, I am giving away something that I hope you’d be delighted to win any week of the year.


One lucky reader will win:

Simplicity 5940 - a sweet little dress in a Size 18 ½, for petite ladies, that will hopefully easily lend itself to some lengthening if needed (Bust 39”, Waist 33”, Hips 43”) AND 1.5m of a beautifully breezy cotton voile.

This giveaway is open to anyone in the whole wide world, as long as you follow my blog. Please enter by midnight (GMT) on Sunday 12 February and a randomly-chosen winner will be announced on Monday 13 February.

Are you taking part in Debi's Sew Grateful Week? I've got a related project post coming up later on this week!
