fun projects and a giveaway





I've been making some eggs (from retro mama) and a couple of birds (from spool) just having way too much fun checking out blogs. I saw the birds on Yarni Gras! blog (with link to spool) and just had to try it. the eggs are not very egg shaped, but I think I figured out why. I'm going to try some more this weekend.

on to the give away..... I have 3 tea towel aprons, the orange one has coffee fabric, the lime green (middle one) has teacups and the blue one has tea pots. leave me a comment on which one you would like. since I don't have a lot of "followers", you should have a good chance at winning! I'll leave it open till Monday march 30th. I will announce the winner on Tuesday the 31st...NOT on April 1st!!! this is my first give away...I'm going to have some "stash busting" giveaways soon, I need some space!

Love your projects and the eggs are adorable. I would have to go with the orange one, it just 'pops' it bright colors. But, truth be told, I love all three. Stash buster, hmmmm, sounds fun!

Wow, your projects are super cute. I like the blue teatowel with the teapots on it. Great giveaway!

Dayna said...

I love all of the aprons. I agree with the others that the oranges one jumps out at you but the blue and yellow are very sweet! Cute eggs even if they are't quite egg shaped! More patience than I have at the moment.
Look forward to your stash busting civeaways too. Maybe I should have some!

Very cute. I really like the tea theme in all of them. I too really like the orange one but since Aunt Pitty Pat instructed us on her blog not to ask for it -- cuz it's her's -- then I'd have to say I like the blue one next best. (BUT, if I did win the orange one, I would NOT stick my tongue out at Aunt Pitty Pat cuz that wouldn't be nice, would it?)

Brandy said...

All your aprons are so beautiful!!! But I would love to have the wonderful blue apron with the tea pots on it! I've never owned an apron though I've always wanted one...Sooooooo, you should pick me to be the proud owner!

Thanks for the contest!

Yarni Gras! said...

Hey!!! Don't you LOVE that birdie pattern!?
Okay...I hope I win.........the ORANGE ONE. They are all so cute but I have ORANGE in my kitchen...yeah! Thanks for the chance!!!

ohiomom said...

I like them all but would have to go with the blue one. Love the little eggs too. They look like they would be hard to make.

James said...

Great aprons!! I like them all, but the orange is first choice ( sorry, M!!) because of the coffee cups, and the green is 2nd because Green is Good (my favorite color) and the blue one IS an apron, after all!!
Oops!! just saw I'm signed in on hubby's account--mine is jodybob quilts.blogspot.com

I love your aprons, so thoughtful of you to post a giveway for them. I would like to be in the drawing for the Yellow teacup apron, please - it will match my kitchen so nicely.

Good luck to all!

grammatrish said...

I just found your blog and love your work. Count me in for the giveaway - I like them all but the lime green/tea pots is calling to me. Keeping my fingers crossed here in Virginia,

Lolly

grammy said...

They are all so pretty it is hard to pick a favorite! Heard about you from Quilting Ranny. I would love any one of them. Makes me feel useless. I don't sew anymore except a button or seam that comes loose. Someday before I die I want to make a quilt!

YayaOrchid said...

Your aprons are so cute! If I had to choose, although difficult since I like all three, I would go for the orange because it's just so bright and cheerful.

Thank you for having this giveaway!

Beeshebags said...

I currently own 2 aprons, a disgustingly old one that says "If it feels good do it" on the front and a Novelty Christmas one....so I would be happy with either of the ones shown, even the orange one! lol Hugs Naomi from Adelaide, Sth Australia
