Sew, Mama, Sew! Giveaway Day!!!!

May Day Giveaway @ Sew, Mama, Sew!

Hi everyone,

I'm participating in Sew,Mama,Sew! blog May Giveaway Day.
It's always a lot of fun to share with all of you.

I've decided to give away a Moda charm pack of  Miss Jump's Scrapbag by Linda Brannock.
This is from an older collection, but would be perfect for a little civil war quilt or table runner.


and a little housewife needle case, like the one I made below.
It won't be the one shown below. I haven't made it yet. I will post the picture of the one I'm giving away late on Monday.


Here's the housewife needle case I'm giving away.
It's in my favorite colors,
Red and White.
I'm adding those cute little scissors and the spool of thread.


All you have to do is leave a comment telling me what inspires you to quilt, sew etc.

That's it.

I will randomly draw the winner on May 25th after 7pm eastern time.
I will ship internationally.

Good Luck.

Hugs

Cute fabric! and I just happen to be making civi war blocks right now!!

I meet every Friday with my wonderful friends - we sew, we talk, we eat, we drink coffee and we definitely inspire each other - we often work on a group project and that's always lots of fun.

Bonnie said...

I quilt for sanity! In a pressure job at work, with two children who have high needs, my quilting is my sane time when I escape from the busyness of life and get my fix! I only have to see some gorgeous fabric or a new lovely pattern or quilt to inspire and start to plan another project to do. They bank up quicker than I can do them but oh well. There is something thereupetic in that too. :)

I started sewing when I gave up smoking, without the help of blogland and the lovely people at my quilt class I don't think I would have managed 2 and a half years smoke free. Now I when I see charm packs I can always see something to make.

I don't know what inspires me to quilt. Is it the fabrics? The fantastic blogs? The incredible pull of all these wonderful quilt items I see everywhere? I think it's a combination of all of those items.

Jessica Jo said...

What inspires me? Cheesy answer: everything. Life in general. Yeah, some days I am not inspired by anything but others it seems like everything I see I want to photograph and figure out how to recreate it in x-craft, which is whatever craft I happen to be obsessed with at the time.

I can't really say that I'm inspired to craft. I'm afraid that it's more of a time filler! Though I can't imagine not doing any.

Katy said...

My daughter inspires me. In addition, I'm driven by the satisfaction that I get in a completed project.

My Mom inspires me. She died of cancer about 6 months ago, and since then I have been sewing like crazy. It makes me feel closer to her, since she loved to sew.

Franstuff said...

I am inspired to sew or quilt by imagery, colors and my children.

Elke said...

I´m often inspired to quilt from nature, green grass in the wind for example. Or I´m inspired from the fabric, that speeks to me what to make with it.

DangAndBlast! said...

Ooh I like your stuff - have put you in my google reader. What inspires me? 1) thinking of all the things my mother made that she doesn't make anymore (she's still around, she just REALLY likes weaving). 2) It's a lot faster than small needlecrafts! 3) I LOVE math, and the geometry in traditional quilts makes me happy (no intentional wonkiness for me). 4) doing something that's been done forever.

I had never seen this fabric... I like it a lot...

~The Bargain Babe said...

I'm inspired because it is a family tradition that I want to keep passing down!

Thanks for a chance to win. :)

Yana said...

I really very much like to sew, because sewing is my rest from big family, possibility to be alone. I'm inspired by loneliness if you wish:)

Nanbon44 said...

when my Mom passed I inherited her machines, I decided to continue her work of making items for charities... I don't knit or Crochet like she did, but we both quilted and I now belong to a online charity group and in the past two years I have made and donated 24 quilts, plus tote bags and other small items.. in honor of my mother

Deb said...

I'm mostly inspired by beautiful things that other crafters make...but, shapes and colors do it, too. Thanks for the great chance...I LOVE charm packs!

maerillem said...

I'm actually a knitter who wants to start sewing, so my answer is more knitter friendly. ^_^ I just love being able to take a few simple tools (a couple sticks and some yarn) and create something beautiful. Being able to do something with my hands while watching movies definitely helps the cause too. ^_^

Christie S. said...

I'm inspired to finally see a finished product that I've made myself. I usually give my items away to family and friends. I think they appreciate it.

pianomama said...

I'm inspired because it's actually the one thing in life I can FINISH! I have six kiddos and the dishes and the laundry and the homework NEVER stay "done" - a quilt is done once it's done and it stays done! Love the feeling of accomplishment!

Les said...

Making memories that can be passed down to future generations inspires me to sew!!

Glenda said...

I love your giveaways. The fabric is beautiful. From a small child fabric and thread has grabbed my attention (believe I could start a shop I have so much fabric, but I keep seeing more!!!). Love tackling anything that is beautiful.

Saraccino said...

I am inspired by structures.. this are often structures you can find in nature. At the beginning of the 20th century Ernst haekel published a book "Kunstformen der Natur" (art structures of nature) where he had a lot of drawings with unexpected beauty and structures to find :) Only to look through his drawings gives me a lot of new ideas! :)

Your needle case is really sweet and I love especially this charm pack!

Linda Meyers-Gabbard aka Ladyblueeyez1960 said...

Thank you for the giveaway. I'm not the quilted my mother is I'm the computer person. She loves to quilt she sews just about every day. Jackets, handbags, quilts and so on. We do craft shows and are getting ready

i love the part where you give something to someone, and they say 'where did you get it' and you get to tell them you made it. :)

Sewing/crafting keeps me sane. Not sure if that's the same as inspiration, but it's true.

it used to be books but nowadays i think the blogs provide so much inspiration.

I started sewing because I just like creating things. These days, I sew because it is so wonderful to have the satisfaction of having made something just the way I want it, in a size that fits or in the colors I love most. Everything inspires and I am especially loving the blogs I am finding lately!!! Blogging is addictive:) Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway:) LOVE the carpenter's star quilt!!!

I love the housewife! I'm inspired to sew things that I can't find in stores--skirts that are long enough, for instance. ;) And quilts where I am able to choose the colors. Things like that. Thank you so much for the lovely giveaway!

Cutness inspires me to create. I like to take what is beautiful already and make it fun, as well. To help bring a smilt to other people's faces.
