It's Giveaway time again

This giveaway has now closed.

Sew mama Sew are kindly running their give away link up again this week.




Hello, and welcome if it's your first visit to my blog. I'm Wendy and I live in Wellington, New Zealand. I love quilting and embroidery and have been blogging for a year now. You can see some of my finished quilts and embroidery by clicking on the tabs above (just underneath the photo of my Gingerbread Village).  I'm also on Instagram at @wendysquiltsandmore if you'd like to see more of the things that I'm working on.

There are lots of prizes up for grabs at different blogs, and I'm giving away the fabrics in this photo.





The top fabrics are from my Redwork Christmas quilt. They look great together and there's enough here for you to make something small like a mini quilt.


My Redwork Christmas quilt.

The brighter fabrics in the lower part of the photo are a collection of Christmas brights that I just don't think I'll ever get round to using. Maybe you can make something from them.

I was fortunate enough to win a bundle of fabrics in the last Sew Mama Sew give away and I made this mini medallion quilt. It's not finished yet, but I've had a lot of fun with those fabrics.





To enter, simply tell me two things in your comment:


1. Tell me what your favourite Christmas food is. You don't have to describe a whole meal, just tell me one thing you enjoy eating at Christmas. My favourite thing to eat at this time of the year is fresh cherries. They grow well in the southern parts of New Zealand, and every supermarket stocks them in December and January.





2. Tell me which fabric bundle you would like to win - the reds or the greens. I'll draw one winner for each bundle, so there will be two winners.

Followers old and new can get a second entry by leaving a second comment telling me how you follow. It could be bloglovin, feedly, GFC, instagram etc.

This giveaway is open to everyone (including international participants). If you are a no-reply blogger, please leave your email address in the comment.


The giveaway will stay open until 5pm Friday Dec 12 2014 (PST Time), and I will use the random number generator at random.org to pick two winners then. Good luck everyone!

By the way, I usually respond to all comments, but giveaways can generate a lot of comments, so I may not be able to respond to you all. Rest assured, I will read them all though.

Check out Sew mama Sew to see a full list of participating blogs. Good luck!

I like the red bundle! Funny story about cherries - my dad visited me here in the States during June (summer) and was totally weirded out by the fact that we were all eating cherries! I am jealous of him though: he works near a Tassie cherry farm that exports to Japan and they give my dad a box of "duds" every Christmas! My favorite US christmas food is "Christmas Crack"!!

I always associate the Christmas season with mandarins. I grew up in Soviet Union and the only time they were available was around the holidays so even though these days one can get mandarins during many months, I buy them only in December and January.
Your redwork quilt is lovely! I'd love to put the leftover reds to some good use :)
