Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day - Supplies

I feel like I've started a bit of a SMS Day giveaway tradition on this blog, as each time I've joined in I've offered up a copy of Love Patchwork & Quilting Magazine and some fabric. So to carry it on, this time I'm giving away this.
Issue 8 of Love Patchwork and Quilting Magazine and a Charm pack of Color Me Happy by Vanessa Christenson of V & Co
I am having a hard time parting with this charm pack and might have to get myself one after flicking through the squares!
This magazine is where I got the pattern from for the handmade goodie I'm giving away over here!
It really is a good read with original patterns, well I think it is!

The Rules.

➢The giveaway will be open from today (Monday 12th May) until 5pm PST on Friday 16th May 2014 thats the middle of the night for me, so I'll get Mr Random to pick a winner on Saturday 17th May.

➢I WILL post internationally, so you can enter wherever you are.

➢Please, please, please, make sure I have your email if you are a no-reply commenter, I'm not telepathic and really don't have enough time to be chasing around the internet to find a contact email for you.

So, now how to enter, leave me a comment telling me what is your favourite Charm Pack project. I have a few Bonnie & Camille ones stashed and can't pick anything to do with them!

As a bonus entry, be a follower (old, new and anyway you like) and let me know in a separate comment telling me how you follow.

I LOVE SMS Day and have found some amazing blogs, followers and prizes from participating in it, so go on have a go and enter lots of them!  And remember my Handmade Giveaway is over here.

  5. Very generous of you! :-) A classic go-to is of course a baby-quilt...but that means having to part with the finished object afterwards. Pillows is good, you get to keep them :-)

  22. What a wonderful prize - anyone would love to win it. I love charm packs because of their versatility. One of my favorite things to do with them is to pair them with white or cream and make half square triangles. I just finished a little table topper where I made HSTs without using a solid and I love it too! blessings, marlene
