Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day

Its giveaway day

I never really thought I would participate.  However, I really enjoy visiting all the sewing and quilting blogs.  So much great information is shared for free.  So many great giveaways.

Here is my mine.
 A little purse made with some Liberty of London scraps and Laura Gunn's painters canvas.  It measures approximately 6" x 6"
I used some fun stitching with heavy thread.  Who knows maybe there will be a little Liberty of London inside?

To enter just leave me a comment telling me if you would rather vacation in the mountains or at the beach. My choice is Glacier National Park with both mountains and lakes.
 I will leave the contest open until 8pm EST on Friday May 10th.  I will pick a random winner on Saturday.

The giveaway is closed.  Thanks to everyone that entered.  I will tally up the beach/mountains to see which one is more popular.

  1. O wow, this little pouch is beautiful! I'd rather vacation at both ~ but if I have to pick right now I'd say beach just because I want to lay in the sun and take a nap instead of go to work haha. I love hiking and trail jogging tho so mountains are great.

  2. Since I live in a place where I'm surrounded by trees, my preference is the beach, hands down! I get to go in three weeks to visit family and can't wait. Your little purse is adorable, and I noticed the SUPER CUTE stitching! Well done! Thank you for participating in the giveaway!

  4. I think since I live on the top of a hill, I'd choose the beach. I love to walk along the water...not necessarily swim...and sunrises and sunsets...awesome! Thanks for a chance to win. I want to make one of these eventually!

  13. I love vacationing in the mountains. Perhaps it's 'cause there aren't any mountains where I live.

  14. I love vacations where I can combine both - like Costa Rica - but I would go with the beach if I had to choose just one. I just LOVE swimming in the sea.

  19. Hmmm... that's a tough one. I guess it would depend on the time of year. I am a huge beach fan, but the mountains can be lots of fun too! Maybe Lake Tahoe in the summer because then you have the best of both! :)

  24. Oh wow - that pouch is gorgeous. Thank you for a chance to win :)

    I grew up at the ocean and although there is a certain peace that comes with lapping waves, my head feels more grounded in the mountains and then I truly relax.

  35. I'm really lucky to live where I do. It's in the mountains - ski slope is a short walk away - and a 5 minute car ride brings you to a beautiful lake. I love it right where I am. And I love your bag! I've been meaning to try one using a purse frame.

  57. Is there a way to vacation near the beach and the mountains? Hawaii maybe? But, if I must choose, a beach with sufficient shade and the ocean is warm enough to swim in.

    ReplyDelete

  82. I prefer the mountains over the beach. We went more often to the mountains when I was a kid so I wonder if that is why. But I also like the shade better than the sun so that is better in the mountains.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I'm a beach girl. We have mountains a plenty where I live so its always nice to go somewhere different and soak up some sun.
