Giveaway Day! **CLOSED**

**GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED! THANKS FOR PLAYING!**
 The winner is #29, Kat! Congratulations!
I have emailed the winner, and if there is no reply in 48 hours, I'll pick another winner.
 
 
(*This post contains affiliate links for which I get a small commission--it's one small way I can keep sewing and blogging about it!*)
 
I always say it, but I love Giveaway Day Week!
First of all though, I'd like to give you a quick 'tour' of what all happened on the blog the past while.
 
Most excitingly for myself, is that I released my first applique pattern on Craftsy--the FHS Castle Applique Pattern.

Not only is there this pattern, but also a free pattern--the FHS Teddy Bear Applique pattern.
With, a tutorial for this belt available here.

I have a little something else *free* in the works for the end of May, so you'll have to stay tuned for that one.
 
I also opened up a Zibbet shop where I have a couple of things for sale that I've sewn!

We had a great session of 'Sewing for Pregnancy Care Centres' this year!
There are many pictures in the Flickr group!

Finally, here is a small round-up of projects I've completed this last while:
 
1. Newcastle Cardigan 2. Kennedy Bag 3. Laurel Tunic
4. Itty Bitty Baby Dresses 5. Indian Elephant 6. Quilt
7. Nursing Cover 8. Baby Boy Button-up 9. Baby Whale
 
 Now, onto the giveaway!
 Up for grabs are some knit scraps!
 
 
The smallest piece is the green at about 18" x 15".
The pink/purple is about 6" x WOF and then a 'tail' of 5" x 41".
Both of those are from Girl Charlee. They are a thin jersey knit.
And, then there is a larger piece of Ruffle Knit from Fabric.com!
It is about 13" x WOF plus a 'tail' of 13" x 24"
 
Plus, I will throw in a free copy of my FHS Castle Applique Pattern!

All you have to do is leave a comment, and since it's May and Spring is hopefully here to stay, let me know what you love about Spring!
I'll go first--I love the warmth, watching things grow, watching the animals frolicking around outside, and letting my kids have free rein of the farmyard.
 
**Please, please make sure you are NOT a 'no-reply' commenter...leave an email address if you think you are!**
Also, this giveaway will close on the 16th of May--I will pick a winner then.
I will ship internationally.
