Welcome to............

........ Giveaway day!

Today I am participating in Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day. This will be my first giveaway, so I am excited, and a little nervous too :-) It has been so much fun participating in the giveaways, but I have sometimes wondered if anyone would join me in a giveaway. I'm sure there are lots of giveaways that are handmade, but my giveaway today is something for you to make. So here goes.....

My giveaway consists of 1 1/2 yards of Susan Branch Tea Party fabric, plus 1/2 yard of yellow polka dot and a fat quarter of white polka dot. With that, I am including 3 yards of blue ric rac. Enough to make a vintage looking apron :-)

Please leave a comment on this post for your name to be put in the drawing. Because I love hearing from all of you, I am also going to include your name a second time if you become a follower and leave a second comment.

That's it! It's simple. I am open to including one and all in this first giveaway. Please be sure to leave a way for me to contact you, either via your blog or email. If I cannot contact the winner, another name will be drawn.

I hope that everyone has a grand time enjoying this Spring Giveaway!

I love aprons. I seem to be wear one all day along. I wear one when I sew so I don't get all loaded with thread and then through dinner time. Then it's off in the wash and it starts all over again with another one in the morning. I am going to use a pattern that I give away for free in my quilt shop if I win your fabrics!!! It's called Fresh from Mother's Cupboard. I think I'll start one tomorrow. Check out my progress at drivingmissstacey(at)blogspot(dot)com
