Grow Your Blog and Give-Away

This is the give-away, a selection of fabric,  most of these, I have used in my crazy-patchwork. If I start any more projects, between now and drawing dsy (15 February), I shall add to it.

The sock yarn, I could not decide if it should be bright or more "straight", so I decided, to add one of each.

Both knit up into great socks. The yarn is self striping/patterning.

Once again,  good luck in the drawer.

Happy stitching

Grow Your Blog and Give-Away

Hello my name is Sharon, I live in outback Queensland Australia. I am a Registered Nurse. A Mum, Grandma, Sister and Aunty.

I have a black cat named Harry Creek,  whomis almost two years old,  and a Jack Russell puppy, named Poppy,  who is almost eight months old.

"Two Bags Full" is hosting the wonderful "Grow Your Blog" party, if you hit the button on my side bar it will take you there, and yoy can visit other bloggers widhing to grow as well.

I have been patchwork and quilting since 2000, in addition I like to knit socks, make golliwogs.

At present I am going through a scrappy stage,  love making random patchwork bags, cushions and whatever else tickles my fancy.

To thank you for stopping by I am giving away a "Scrap Bag", the scraps are not itty bitty, most are arround five inches or so, this is to tempt the winner into delving into the world of scrappy patchwork,  there will be enough scraps to make a cushion top or a bag.  But be warned scrappy is addictive. I will also include a ball of sock yarn,  to tempt the winner into sock knitting.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

To to in the running to win, just leave a comment, and your email address so I can contact you. There is no need to follow my blog yo win, but I sure would like you to follow my antics.

Oh the winner will be drawn on 15 February, @ 14.00 hours Brisbane time. I will post anywhere in the world.

Happy stitching
