Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!

Thank you, everyone, for stopping by during the past week.  I had fun reading everyone's comments, but do apologize for not responding to all.  I was so busy visiting all of the blogs and making new friends, I was exhausted by the time is was time to crawl into bed.  

I had total of 6 winners for both giveaways I offered.  Congrats to CyLynn!  She has won the Traveling Stash Giveaway.  Head on over to visit her and enter the Traveling Stash Giveaway once she receives the box and adds to it from her stash.  She lives over at CyLynn's Sunflower Patch.

The 5 other winners each won at Studio Cherie Duffle Bag Pattern.  The Random Number Generator happened to be my Hunka Burnin' Love.  Out of 125 (2 comments did not qualify) comments, he chose in this order:                                          #77 - PippaP 
                                                                     #36 - HeatherD
                                                                     #107 - chibidani
                                                                     #55 - Southern Gal
                                                                     #6 - tlcala4me

I've sent emails to each winner.  If I do not hear back from them within 24 hours, I will choose another winner in their place.

Thank you, again, for visiting!  I look forward to seeing you again and again :)

Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day is Here!

I have been looking forward to Giveaway Day at Sew Mama Sew for quite a while.  I always have great fun reading all of the different blogs and finding new friends to follow that I thought I'd post a giveaway also.  There seems to be a big move towards bag making in Flickr land, so what a perfect time to share a duffle bag pattern!  Studio Cherie has such a fabulous pattern, plus she lives in the same city as I do.  Why not offer 5 of her patterns?!

The only requirement to win a pattern is to leave a comment.  Mr Random Number Generator will pick 5 different winners.  The giveaway closes on May 10th, 5pm PST.  Please leave your email in your comment or have one in your profile, otherwise your comment cannot win.

I also love followers (hint, hint)!  I must admit I'm not a "regular" blogger, but I have several projects I've taken photos of and hope to get posted in the near future.  My health doesn't always follow what my mind desires when making plans!  Please find me over at Bloglovin' to keep up with what I'm doing.

You can go here to find all of the other fabulous giveaways!  If you are a blogger, I have another giveaway for a traveling stash box happening here.


Traveling Stash Giveaway

Congrats CeLynn!  Head on over to her Sunflower Patch to see what she adds!

The Traveling Stash has visited my home and is ready to fly away to yours!  A traveling stash is a box of fabrics, patterns, and notions that travels across the United States visiting bloggers homes.  While it is visiting, you can take what you want as long as you replace it with like items.  I also have a Sew Mama Sew Giveaway happening here.

Here is what arrived in the my box:

Life's A Hoot Apron Panel

This is what I kept:
The charm packs are perfect for a charity quilt I'm planning to make for the quilt guild :o)

And this is what I added:
