{GIVEAWAY}: Lizzy House Red Letter Day

My children are tired, cranky and emotional and I could have buried all three of them at the bottom of the garden the other day when our simple activity of decorating the Christmas tree regressed to a total whinge-fest. I just feel sorry for the tree. It has a CD hanging from it for a decoration. Our next door neighbour's finely decorated tree taps on the window when it thinks we're not looking and laughs at our one. I have a gathering of 18 children descending upon my door tomorrow afternoon for an end-of-season sports team celebration and I bet it rains so we are all stuck inside eating burnt rice bubble cake off each others' laps and I haven't even started my Christmas shopping. So, burglars, don't get any ideas and raid our house because all you'll get under our tree is some paper baubles with hand-drawn smiley faces on them. Let's just cancel Christmas and have a fabric giveaway instead? Are you with me?
Twice a year, Sew Mama Sew holds a Giveaway Day which runs for almost a week and you serial giveaway enterers can enter every single one from bloggers all over the world. Or you could be selective, and just enter the good ones. Like mine. Just joking. But not really. It is actually quite good. Look:
Yes, I know. 15 fat quarters of Lizzy House Red Letter Day fabrics. Whaat?

Wait a minute. Haven't you seen this giveaway before? Why, yes. Yes you have. I gave away the same bundle over six months ago on my old blog, and enjoyed the experience so much, I have decided to give up the other bundle. As Lizzy House fans know, these fabrics are out of print and very hard to find. Don't worry, my children haven't made me go completely crazy, I do still have enough left for moi, but I love to give and just know this will be a nice Christmas present for a fellow Lizzy House LOOOOVERRRR.

Just let me know where you're from. That's it. There is no requirement to sign up to my blog, but if you would like to, new followers are always welcome and as an added bonus, existing and new followers will qualify for two entries. Since I will be using a random number generator to select a winner, please leave a second comment letting me know you follow. No reply commenters, please leave your email address in your comment, otherwise I will not be able to reach you.

This giveaway is open to international readers. It will close on Saturday 14 December (New Zealand time), with a winner announced shortly afterwards. If I do not receive a reply within three days of the announcement, I will choose another winner.

The last time I participated in the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day, my fabric bundle ended up going to the armpit of Florida. I wonder where this one will end up? Exciteballs.

  94. Southern Utah. We had grandkids drop in while we were decorating and our tree has never been put together faster. Hubby didn't even have time to complain about my rehanging the ornaments he hung first. Course there is quite a lot of decorations on the lower branches but who cares, it is done! Thanks.

  97. I did try to win this bundle before! And I lost. Because I am not from the armpit of Florida but instead from the middle of Tennessee. Thank you again, I sure would delight in putting these under my tree, which I promise your tree would laugh at, because I have a 16mo and only the top half is decorated.

  105. I found myself nodding as I read your first paragraph--except our tree is still in the garage lying on it's side. The kid whininess is incessant. I'm in Wyoming and it's cold.

    I also LOVE Lizzie House and missed this collection entirely. So I was excited to see it. Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  106. Yeah. The tree. I'm pretty sure that at least half the lights have burned out. And, it's lost as least as many needles as a real tree does every year, so it's looking pretty sparse. Still, the show must go on. I'm writing from Victoria, British Columbia where it's not supposed to get this cold. (I'm the head winger here). Thanks for the chance to win.

Thanks for the laugh! I'm from sunny North Florida where it's hot and doesn't feel like Christmas and we all just keep dreaming of coffee and hot chocolate and sweaters and boots in our flip flops and shorts and iced tea!
