March Spring Giveaway

I am once again offering 3 prizes to be given away at the end of March and I hope you will not only sign up, but tell others about these three prizes.

The first will be this sewing machine caddy I made awhile back. The top portion sits under your sewing machine while the three pockets hold various notions and the detachable trash catcher allows you to place loose threads, small pieces of fabric, etc. in the pocket and when you are done, detach it and empty it.

It has a polyester batting center and yellow flannel backing. I have never had a problem with it slipping out from under my machine. I think anyone who sews, quilts or crafts will find this a great addition to your sewing table.

Secondly is a quarter yard of this wonderful spring green colored, tulip fabric. This month, I am leaving the fabric uncut so you can use it or cut it to your own project demands. It is just such a happy fabric that when I had some cut for me, I had extra fabric cut specifically with this giveaway in mind. I would love to see what the winner creates with this piece.

The last item I am giving away this month is a brand new, unopened package of 4 magnetic grocery lists for your fridge. I don't know about you, but I have 2 I use all the time along with a pen holder. One of them is used for items we need now such as bread, milk, eggs and the second one are items we run out of but can wait until grocery time.

You could even remove the magnets and place them next to your telephone for messages, place one in your purse to jot down notes you want to remember, etc. I would just remind you to remove the magnet when you do this in case you set your purse near a computer!

There is only one package of these pads, the two pictures come from each side of the package and then there are 2 more pads in the middle.

Ways to win:

1- If you leave a message on this post, you automatically get entered into the drawing for all three items. I use a random number generator and pick three numbers as winners.

2- If you post a link to this giveaway on your blog and send me the link, you will get an additional 5 entries.

3- Tell me what spring means to you in a separate comment and get an additional 5 entries.

4- If someone posts a comment here and tells me they heard about this from your blog, you will get an additional 5 entries and your friend will get 3 entries.

***Drawing will take place on March 31st, no later than 9:00 pm EST with winners being notified by Email on April 1st & no, I will not play tricks on this day.***

Also, please send me your mailing address as soon as possible after the drawing so I can get your prize out in the mail to you.

Have fun, come back often and Good Luck!

Wow! what fun items. You mean if I win the sewing machine caddy, I won't have an excuse for tossing the thread on the floor?

Spring for me is definately the season of renewal. Not just smelling the mud and watching the flowers bloom but also taking a look deep inside myself to renew my spirit. Hope returns after the hibernation of winter.

Here in Western NY Spring is so welcome and i embrace it.

Spring is just around the corner (at least I keep trying to convince myself of that). I love the Tulip material. It would be great in a couple of projects I have in mind.

Spring means a fresh start to me. Time to start the garden and enjoy the warmth from the sun. Winter is long where I live.

Living in Denver, to mean spring means wild snow storms. It always seems like spring is the snowiest time of year around here - so it will be 80* one day, 0* and snowing the next. I love spring - it's my favorite time of year. Everything blooming and new, the weather warming up...yum! It's like the earth comes back to life in spring, after a long sleep in winter.

Thanks so much - my fingers are crossed! :)

Oh how I would LOVE those magnetic pads. I have a big family, and often can't find a scrap of paper to make a list! I don't know where all the paper goes, never mind the pens and pencils! I would just love to win them. Thanks for the chance.

cdziuba said...

Spring is rebirth to me. It is an awakening of all that is good with the Earth. I long for the sun and warmth, Spring means hope!!

Judy said...

I could use a sewing caddy. It has to work better than hanging plastic bags from my chair.

Judy said...

Spring means taking long walks on the melting snow in the arctic, cool wind in my hair, a very hot sun on my face, and fresh clean air! No place beats Alaska! shadowsangell(AT)hotmail.com

I love the Fabric. I'd love to win it. The notepads could help keep me organized to. I like your idea about the two notepads, I think I'll start doing that, then maybe I won't forget what I currently need at the store and end up buying what could wait until my regular big grocery shopping day.

Spring means hopefully April showers. Where I live, we've had a very dry winter. We need moisture or we might end up on watery restrictions. Can't have watering restrictions and grow a great big bountiful vegetable/fruit garden. I want a great garden this year. April please give us showers where I live.

Sandra K321 said...

Kathy let me know about this giveaway. You have some very nice things for the giveaway. Thanks.

Sandra K321 said...

Spring to me means daffodils and crocus and red buds on the maple trees. I love spring because it means the long cold New England winter with it's snow turned to ice is over. It means OUTDOOR SOCCER for my son.

Shirley said...

Good Morning! I was reading about your giveaway on Thrifty Jinkxy's blog so I thought I would come over and visit.

Shirley said...

Spring means......baby lambs in the fields, tulips and daffodils, pussy willows and fresh veggies from the garden.

Laura of Harvest Lane said...

Tulips, daffodils, jonquils, crocus, tiny little leaves poking their little heads out everywhere. Don't you just love spring?

Greetings from Perth, Western Australia. I love reading your blog; as a Christian I find what you say encouraging and uplifting. The giveaways look great. Spring means the beginning of the hot weather to me. In Perth we often have lots of days near (or over) 100 degrees F, and as I get older I don't cope so well with the heat.
regards
Sam
