Sew, Mama Sew Giveaway Day!!

*** The Giveaway is now closed at 244 comments. ***

I couldn't resist!  You know the score, this will no doubt be the millionth place you've stopped by today, but maybe it could be the place you get lucky!!


As the regular crew are aware, I've been flashing my Christmas makes of pouches/purses for all to see at frequent intervals over recent weeks, so it is surely only right and proper for me to offer one up for grabs!  If this is your first time in this neck of the inter-woods, please feel free to look around, stay a while and hopefully come back again.

Now, I am more than capable of organising my weekend plans for six months time, but getting myself sorted with good photos for this evening has been a bit hit and miss, please accept my apologies.

So here is the little purse (in a UK sense) I put together for today...



I will fill it with bits and bobs, including a brooch, or maybe even two, and if you need convincing it's worth a go, I'll post pictures of the extras tomorrow, when I am in less of a tizzy! (Updated - click here to see the rest!).

This is open to international entrants, and will close on Saturday 17th December at about 9am UK time.  I will draw the winner via Random Number Generator.

For your chances...
Leave one comment telling me what you will be doing on June 2nd 2012 (if you don't know yet, you can make something up)...
...and for a second chance, be a Follower and leave a separate comment (but don't fib on this one - I will check).

NB.  If you are a 'No Reply Blogger', or think you might be, please leave your email address in your comment(s) eg. 'hadley dot 1 at virgin dot net', otherwise I won't be able to contact you and I will pick someone else, sorry.

Good luck, and thank you for choosing to stop by my humble abode when I know there are so many great people to see and goodies to win courtesy of Sew Mama Sew today xxx

He's notorious for not knowing what to get, and therefore just giving up on the whole thing :-( A little note in his wallet should help! I will also be a mama of two by then, which is a VERY exciting thought indeed...
