Today is Giveaway Day x 2!

Update: This giveaway is now closed!

The big bi-annual day Giveaway Day hosted by Sew Mama Sew is here!
I don't know about you but I love winning giveaways and hosting some is fun too. "Meeting" lots of new quilting bloggers is always a good thing.

So what am I offering up today?

The first bundle includes a Water Garden charm pack and a silicone iron rest. I had asked for an iron rest for Christmas but what I meant was the extension that attaches to the end of my ironing board. Hubby oopsed and got me this instead (he really needs to learn to buy from the shops I put on my wish list since they sell what I want instead of trying to get it from someplace else and buying the wrong thing). Anyway his boo-boo is your gain.

The 2nd bundle are these 2 lovely and bright half yard cuts that I grabbed last week at my LQS and a 12" long quarter inch Super Seamer by Dritz. My MIL bought me 2 of these for Christmas, different versions, and I certainly don't need two.  

What do you have to do to have a chance at winning one of these two goody packages?

Since this weekend is Mother's Day, what 1 gift are you wishing to receive, other than the love from your family of course? - one entry per person

My followers get a 2nd entry - remind me that you do follow.

Hubby does like it when I "buy" my own gifts for these types of holidays so he doesn't have to wrack his brain to come up with an idea. My favorite gift for Mother's Day that I chose in the past is my Keurig coffee maker. I can't live without it!

What am I choosing this year? I have one specific want need.
I need a bobbin winder to use for my long arm bobbins so this one from K Kraft is going to be this year's Mother's Day gift to me. My new baby doesn't come with a built in winder.


So there you have it, 2 possible entries per person only. International entries are welcome. Please put your email address in your comment if you are a No reply Blogger or you use Wordpress. I hate it when I can't get in touch with a winner and have to redraw a new name.

I'm going to say up front that I won't be replying to all your comments for this post. These Giveaway Day comments typically number in the multiple hundreds and with the deadline for the teacher quilts fast looming, I just won't be able to spend a ton of time on the computer replying to all of you. Trust me that I do read and enjoy each and every one of them though.

Entries will close at Midnight Friday May 10th and the winners will be announced over the weekend.
Thank you to Sew Mama Sew for again hosting this fun party. I can't wait to hop all over quilt blog land to see what is up for winning and hopefully be a bit lucky myself.

324 of you added your own colorful comments:

  1. The best Mothers' day gift would be No cooking for me all day! ;-)

  2. I'm not a mom, but I can tell you what I'm giving my mom this year! A king size quilt! My first bed-sized quilt, ever. :)

    ReplyDelete
  3. I follow your blog via GFC and Google Reader; thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Hmmm...I would ultimately love for quite a few pounds to just disappear. I would love that more than any other gift!

    ReplyDelete
  5. Sorry, no tiny people at my house.. yet.

    ReplyDelete
  6. This year, my gifts have already been received. I have 2 loving children living meaningful lives, and I get to watch it happen. Now if they want to give me something, I'll be thrilled to receive a clean home!

    ReplyDelete
  7. my favorite gift to receive is fabric and quilting items but it looks like our husbands have the same issue with not going to the stores that know us best (which is a shame because most of them will shop for them and wrap it).

    ReplyDelete
  8. A very simple gift actually - another yellow climbing rose bush.

    ReplyDelete
  9. The love of my family is a given... but perhaps a little bit of uninterrupted time with my sewing machine would be nice too.

    Happy Mothers Day!!

  10. I would really like a new necklace for mothers day.

  15. I am a follower - For Mother's Day the best gift for me it to be left alone with just total solitude - too many years of 'I wants' and 'I needs' - just a nice quiet day with no interuptions is bliss!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I don't really have any gifts I'm wishing for. Not long ago my son gave me the orange iron from Reliable, so I think that was enough for a while. It is fabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I bought myself two Bernina presser feet...I guess that's my gift. =) Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Fabric, fabric, fabric. That's what I want!! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I would love a Sodastream... with a lifetime supply of CO2.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I would love fabric... or an ironing board ... but I think I'll probably get breakfast (in bed-ish) and a day spent with my MIL (good thing I like her!)

    Might I make a suggestion to you? Make a "I really really want this thing here" pinterest board. My husband has been using mine for christmas and my birthday for the past year and it's great -- pin from the site you expect hi to buy from, add the price (so he knows if it's more than that to ask you about it). I list lots of stuff as I go, and then edit before a gift type holiday. :) Here's mine if you wanted to see. http://pinterest.com/emedoodle/things-i-would-never-buy-for-myself-but-love/

  21. SLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP. I want sleep. :D

    ReplyDelete
  22. Since this will be the first Mother's day without my mom, I am hoping for a quiet day. But that probably will not happen as I run a summer business and if the weather is nice we are open.

    ReplyDelete
  23. For Mother's Day I'd love for my son to surprise me with a visit. But seeing as how he's is several states away, I'll happily settle for a phone call as I miss him terribly.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I am hoping that I get one of those sitting little wagons that you sit on that holds things inside for gardening. My knees don't work the way they used to and I cant be on them anymore, but I love to plant my flowers and keep the area weeded.
