Giveaway Day December 2012!


Whoo hooo! Let the fun begin!  This giveaway is closed now, but thank you for your interest!

First, though, let's thank the wonderful folks over at SewMamaSew because they organize and host this event twice a year! It's an awesome opportunity to hop around and find fun new blogs to visit, and perhaps win some neat prizes, too!

Here at Lilypadquilting, we are offering up four charm packs of Jovial, by Basic Grey, for Moda. Yep, you read that right --- four charm packs!

Take a look!


Padsworth and DragonDrop thought it was great fun to play with the fabric, but I can assure you that no charm packs were injured in the writing of this post. (Grin)


They loved making a house, and playing King on the Mountain, too!


(These charm packs came from our special friend Michelle who ran the Quilt Kit Market. She is now focusing on developing patterns for sale.)

Want to win these? Oh, you know you do!! These packs just make you feel all jingle-bell-y all over!  And I can just SEE the smoke coming from your ears, as the gears turn and you dream of creating a quilt, a runner, some placemats, or other Christmas-y things!  You didn't know that I could see you, did you? That's one of my super-powers, don'tcha know?!   (Maniacal laughter fading away . . . )


Ahem.

Leave me a comment using the word "elf" or "elves" and you will be entered to win!!  Easy peasy!

Now, you don't have to be a follower to win, but we do love our followers, so if you are one of these special peeps, you can leave me a comment to tell me so, and that will be your second entry to win!!

This giveaway will be open until 5pm (PST) on December 7, and the winner will be announced on the next day!

Now, be sure to go over to SewMamaSew and see all of the other fabulous giveaways, and fun blogs to visit, too!

Last time we played this fun game, we had so many comments that we just couldn't keep up! Please forgive us if we don't reply to you --- we'll give it a shot, but we might not get around to everyone!
I'm also linked up to Royal Legacy Tuesday Treasure Giveaway Linkup!

  1. Thank you for a great give away! I miss elves from Finland! There I used to see them now and then beside on the road or even near to our summer place. It's amazing scene when huge elf is swimming in the lake very early in the morning to pass to the other side.
    I'm your happy follower! x Teje

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  24. Who needs elves!!!! Padsworth and DragonDrop are cuter than any elf you will ever find. Make sure they are hiding on Christmas Eve so that Santa doesn't steal them away to the North Pole. I am sure he would think that these two are more fun, better looking and far more helpful than any elf he has had in the last century.
    XOXO to "cuter than elf" Padsworth and Dragondrop.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Does that house they made conform to elf and safety regulations? (sorry someone had to do the elf and safety pun and it may as well have been me!)

  31. What the elf am I supposed to write about elves? My sister and I saw a large Santa elf in Naples Florida and are still arguing about whether it was Santa or just an Elf -- doesn't the poem say that Santa IS a jolly old elf? I rest my case.
