December Giveaway Day


She forgot her insecurities (8” x 10”)

The above quilt is a thread embellished print of a scanned painting that was printed onto cotton fabric. When creating the original painting, the words stuck with me and I spent most of 2011 letting go of insecurities and taking risks. It didn’t always work out well; there were tears and frustration. But overall, I’ve had an adventure, learned a lot and I’m thrilled with all that I’ve accomplished this year:

I feel like celebrating my successes and the timing of the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day is perfect.

One lucky reader will win the thread embellished print/art quilt above.

A second lucky reader will win a Creative Girl Faces & Dress Patterns mini kit with the dress pattern in 2 sizes, quilt instructions and 8 small and 4 large faces.


To enter the giveaway, leave a comment before 5pm Pacific time on Friday, December 16th telling me about one of your favorite successes of the past year.

I’ll randomly select the 2 winners (one for the quilt and one for the kit) on Saturday.

Be sure to visit Sew Mama Sew to find all giveaways this week.

  5. My biggest success this year is the fact that I have been in remission for my longest time frame ever… chemo for the past 18 months!! I am so excited to be able to acknowledge that I haven’t been sick or in the hospital in that length of time. That beautiful art is all about me. Thanks for the op to win

  15. Possibly the biggest success all year was letting go of useless fears and need to control. It’s simply not possible to control anything other than our own thoughts and actions. Realizing that (and putting it into action) brings an amazing level of peace! Thanks for the giveaway. That block is beyond gorgeous.

  20. Favourite success? Finally finding a wedding date! (It really was a success as I have a crazy mother who is v superstitious and every date we chose happened to be ‘bad luck’ days!)
