Happy Giveaway Day!
The fine women at Sew, Mama, Sew! have organized a Giveaway and I am thrilled to participate. I took time out from a busy day yesterday to sew up a little someone, hurrying to finish so I could capture his charm while it was still sunny. I also scrubbed my kitchen floor, shook out a houseful of rugs and threw a recently completed quilt up and over the swingset to snap a few pictures.
But enough about me - what do you get? If you are the lucky winner of my giveaway, you just might get Jed. Dapper and optimistic despite losing both arms to a chainsaw mishap, Jed sports the finest in Pacific Northwest flannel. His hair is a jaunty acrylic boucle, a surprisingly luxe touch for such a homespun guy. Jed’s forbearers are Ted and Ned, hand-made for my two boys; Graham, 5 and Hayden, 7.
Jed is stuffed with “100% Premium Polyester Fiberfill” making him very huggable, something I’ve discovered after rigorous product testing. Although squooshy enough to be pillows, Jed and his brothers have also been used as missiles, battering rams and all-purpose whackers.
Oh dear now here come some tears! Apparently, Jed is THE favorite - when I told Graham that I was mailing him off to someone he started bawling! “I want him! I have three reasons: because I love him, I really want you to not, and because I like his pants and he’s a new one.” (Wasn’t that four reasons?) Hayden chimed in with,“Oh Jed I’ll miss you, I’ve certainly enjoyed those few short times we’ve had together.”
Perhaps you’re feeling more doll-quilty? If you are my gifted one, you might choose this delightful little doll/sample quilt, featuring a soothing palette of aquas and greens, backed in a light blue print with a kicky pieced stripe. The white cotton is a luscious sateen -- cool to look at, but warm and soft to the touch. Twenty two inches square, a gal could probably fit two, or even three Barbies beneath it.
Please specify which item you would like. I will have one of my assistants draw a number out of the hat and mail the prize off to the lucky winner. I look forward to your responses!
