Giving back

I’m feeling very grateful today. It felt like a risk to host the You Show me Yours, I’ll Show you Mine linky, and not just because of the slightly risqué title. I felt like a middle schooler inviting everyone at school to a party and then sitting and waiting to see if anyone would come!

So to those of you who participated by linking or just by exploring, thank you! I really had so much fun and learned so much. I did not anticipate how much I would learn or how painfully I would long to go shopping!

If you haven’t played around with it yet, you can still explore everyone’s posts even though the link is closed.

And now to give back. I promised a giveaway to one lucky linky participant! And the winner is

#9 Green from So Sew Green!! Yay Green! I swear I used the Random Number Generator but I couldn’t get the code right to show it here. You’ll just have to trust me.

Here is what you have won:

64 one inch blocks (1/2 inch finished)! These are my tiny, tiny scraps from the machine paper pieced airplane pillows. Just couldn’t throw them away, and now I’m glad I didn’t! You might think that piecing 1 inch blocks would be pain. You’d be right.

And the back:

The lucky winner will also receive a mini charm pack of Bonnie & Camille’s new line Scrumptious! I added it to my gift certificate order from Southern Fabric with this giveaway in mind.

And to give back just a little more, I want to direct you to one of my favorite bloggers: Ashley at Wasn’t Quilt in a Day. Her beautiful and brave sister is about to shave her head to raise money to cure childhood cancer. So, naturally, Ashley made a quilt. Because when there’s a cause that’s what we do. Ashley is going to give this gorgeous quilt away to one lucky contributor to the campaign. I entered but I promise not to win, due to my recent winning streak… Here is Ashley’s Belle Wave quilt:

So help a quilt sister give back! She’s only requiring a small donation to enter.

Have a fabulous weekend and come back Monday to see my entry for Ellison Lane’s sewing space link up.

  1. Congrats Green! I had every intention of participating in the Show me Yours link-up but life/work has exploded lately. It was awesome to see everyone’s stashes!

  2. What a sweet pincushion! (and if I couldn’t win, Green is a pretty nice person to lose to 😉 ) I’m thrilled for you that the link-up got so big! I have a bunch of stashes I need to go peruse and comment on. Yay Sarah!

  3. Yes! I’m so excited I finally won something. I love that pincushion and mini charms are awesome – the perfect size for epp hexies. Thanks for hosting a terrific linky party, Sarah! I’m still slightly embarrassed about my lack of organization, but winning is validation that I shouldnt feel shame any longer. Thanks again!

  4. Congrats to Green! And how appropriate with that one green square! I just love that adorable pin cushion. And thank you, Sarah, for hosting the fun linky party AND especially for promoting Ashley’s cause! Your rock my sewing world, girlfriend!
