Giveaway Day!!!

Happy Monday people, if your new here today HELLO!
I'm Joanne a mum of three children and wife of a very easygoing husband!  I live in London (just) and have a serious fabric and wool addiction! I love to make things for my family and honestly feel happier in the day if I've managed to do something crafty.
I started this blog with a love of knitting and crochet, but have slowly been sucked into a world of quilting and more recently sewing clothes after my mum bought me my own sewing machine!
I love a giveaway! And have entered lots of them, always hoping to be picked!! I have been lucky a few times and won some brilliant things, so I couldn't help but want to join in with Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day.
I'm offering up an unopened copy of Love Quilting & Patchwork Magazine which is a new UK magazine that has the Marcelle Medallion pattern and lots of other brilliant patterns and interviews and 3 fq's of some of my favourite fabrics.
I will post anywhere in the world and will leave it open until Friday 10th May, 5pm PST time (about 1am Saturday in the UK).
All you need to do for a chance to win is, to leave me a comment telling me your favourite sewing/quilting book or magazine (my wishlist is looking a little low!!!!). Followers can get another entry just leave a separate comment letting my know you are one! I'll use Mr RNG to pick a winner.
Please, please leave an email address if your a no-replyer!
Now, head over to the Sew Mama Sew blog to see all of the other giveaways! There are loads!!
Note! This Giveaway has now closed!
