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.

313 of you added your own colorful comments:

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!

Katie said...

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).

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!

Lisa Marie said...

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!

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

Lindsay said...

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

Emily said...

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/

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.

Monica said...

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.

Jenna said...

I would love to get to sleep in and not have to make dinner! :-) I'm hoping for both!

I would love fresh flowers!

For mother's day, i am just hoping for something. Kind of pathetic, i know, but I've never received a gift. giftI have 4 kids, and my husband, who is awesome at everything but this, finally gets it that i want recognition. So i would be happy with anything, even just a card.

Kathy @ Kwilty Pleasures said...

I want the same thing that I eagerly await every year......on Mother's Day, I get to pick out plants and flowers at a local nursery. Hubby buys whatever I pick out.
Lucky me!

I don't have kids, but I'll probably go shopping on Mother's Day for myself anyway, haha.

We moved last year to a house with basically no landscaping, so all I want is some flowers I can plant and enjoy for years to come.

Sallie said...

Mud Season pattern from Keepsake Quilts. Thanks for the giveaway!

Beth said...

I love planting my flowers with my youngest son each Mother's Day.

sandyandcosmo said...

I just want some FaceTime with my granddaughter who lives several states away.

Christine S said...

Fabric, it's all I ever wish for

Rachell said...

well, my friend, this is some fun stuff! I totally love the iron rest that attaches to the end of the ironing board,....and the cord minder that I got first.
I'm working on Mother's Day. the Home Machine Quilting Show is this weekend, so I'm planning on attending....my wish is to come home with a mid arm or longarm, but that's 99% unlikely. but more fabric would be great ! I would love a fat quarter bundle of Cuzco or a jelly roll of it, or a fat quarter bundle of Pieces of Hope, or a fat quarter bundle of Prairie Rose by Riley Blake.

Lori said...

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.

Rachell said...

I follow you on my blog, Michele. I haven't done a great job of commenting lately, but I enjoy reading.
BTW, there is a new collection coming out, that I saw a preview for on Fat Quarter Shop......All Fired Up by Dan Morris by RJR Fabrics. I can't wait for more firefighter fabrics!

wobblybobbin said...

Honestly, the greatest gift would be to enjoy a cup of coffee in peace and quiet. ha! but that probably won't happen :)

Jocelyn said...

I really don't need a gift for Mother's Day. But it would be nice if everyone would pitch in and help around the house........every day!

I get flowers and no cooking for mother's day, and some lovely gift aside.
I sincerely do not know what to wish for, my DH always comes up with the best surprise gifts. And I'd love to have pictures painted by my sons - I don't get that many, they only paint for other people. :-)

Oso said...

A nap. Yep, a simple nap. It was almost 6 years since I didn't take a nap and this weekend my husband has made it possible, taking my daughters away with him I don't know where (and I don't mind). I'm crying of happiness.

Thanks for the chance to win!

I am happy that my husband will be home for Mother's day this year. He is a soldier and is usually gone on Mother's Day. So it is gift enough that he is here to take care of the kids so I can take it easy.

I don't really want a gift. My daughter came home from girl scouts last night with an African violet that I'd mentioned I'd wanted the week before, so for her to remember that, is gift enough for me.

I have started to tell my daughters (4) that we will go out together to a Restaurant. My Hubby is quite picky and I can't get to a place like a Faita Restaurant so that is what we do together.Not necessarily on Mothers Day but we go together.

Debbie said...

I don't really want anything. My daughter lives far away and my Mom passed away a little over a year ago. My hubby also passed away. So I'm alone and I'll probably just go to work.
