Time for a Giveaway!!!!!!

I haven't quite finished writing up the pattern yet, but I should have it done very soon (she says with fingers and toes crossed - hehehe!!) so here it is ... I'm so pleased with how they all turned out. I've called them "Old-fashioned Favourites" for the moment ... but if you have a better idea I'd love to hear it - "Memories of Donna Reed" was one name I was tossing about, but it seemed from conversations with others that I was the only one who remembered Donna Reed [sigh]!!! Showing my age I think LOL.
There's a fully lined apron ...... and a pot-holder (do you love the little pink vintage button??) ........
and oven mits......and a cute little recipe book cover, complete with bookmark ;o)!!!!!I've really enjoyed putting this pattern together - I'll be giving 3 away and you can win one just by leaving a comment on my blog ... and if you want an extra entry just mention the giveaway on your blog and link it back to here - easy!!! Overseas entries are more than welcome and I'll draw the winners on Saturday night, the 29th.

I've also been busy stitching other things ... I've been making things for my Christmas Swap partner, (organised extremely quickly by Janet of Wildcraft Farm :o) thanks Janet) and since we are swapping with each other I don't want to give away any surprises - he he it's ok Dawn, no need to cover your eyes, piccies of those will have to wait ;o). I can show you this though ..... I think I must have been the only blogger that hadn't made one of these ... so now I have, I love it, I know I'm going to make lots more - the bears are looking pretty comfy too doncha think?!?!!That's all for now ........

Take care,

Hugs,

Joy :o)

Joy, thanks so much for visiting my blog! Am visiting yours now - so much to see, so I'll have to return - what a fabulous give-away! I'm an ex-Brisbane girl, been here nearly 4 years now, so can't wait to catch up on everything! Will mention your give-away next time I post!
Hugs - Lurline!

Kris Meares - Tag Along Teddies said...

Hey Joy! Returning a visit and enjoyed reading your last few posts to 'catch up'! Hmmm, "Cooking Cuties", "Kitchen Chic"??? I always forget to wear an apron and make a mess!! Your night at the Turkish restaurant looked fun - I attended Tribal Belly Dancing classes for 3 years and performed at some local events - lots of fun - so would be great to see the girl you saw. And I attended day one of Stitchers Dream Day out and my surprise kit was ... the sewing cushion! Haven't progressed since as have been too busy - one day! Will be back for more visits! Bear Hugs KRIS

I hope I don't seem to be immodest if I want to be in the draw again, because I already won one of your faboulous patterns, but the apron looks gorgeous and the oven mittens too.

These are so cute - and I'm SO into aprons right now!! It's nice to see a vintage style. :-)
I'm adding a link from my blog.

What a lovely pattern, I like making things that are useful. I love the colours you have made it in.

It reminds me of June Cleaver. Would you throw in a string of pearls?
I'd love to win that pattern!

Oooh cute pattern!! count me in too please!

margaret leigh said...

I saw the prize items 'in person' earlier this week. The Recipe Book will come in really handy as I will now be receiving a recipe a week from friends and even though I am not yet a cook, I could put the apron etc on and pretend, couldn't I??????????

Hi Joy, Love the little basket, can I ask is the pattern a freebie somewhere, if not, where can I get it please, it would make great little gifts for my daughters to keep 'stuff' in, in their rooms, i could make them all the colours of their rooms. Thanks and look forward to hearing from you! ps. thanks for visiting. Sonya at Giggle Buttons
