Embroidering Quilt block for Baby Quilt

Comin’ Home is not a ‘sewing’ blog per se..but I am an avid seamstress and quilter! I try to post a good sewing tutorial or show and tell every week. My archives are chock full of tutorials like

Week 5 044-3000 Week 5 045-4000-3000  


I’d like to invite you to enter my giveaway which is part of a huge sewing/crafty/homemade items giveaway put on by Sew Mama Sew. Several hundred bloggers and crafters will be listing their giveaways at Sew Mama Sew’s website


notions one-3000


The prizes will be in three categories and you can choose which blogs you want to visit based on what they offer:
  • Hand crafted Items
  • Crafty Supplies and Materials
  • Sewing Supplies and Materials 
The giveaways start Monday the 23rd at 9:00am Eastern Time and closes May 25th by midnight.  THREE DAYS of Fun! I'll announce the winners the next day and I'll ship out my gift by May 30th.  Yes, I will ship internationally.  Just leave a comment on this post..and you are entered! 


fabric giveaway 003-3000

I’m giving away a yard and a half of darling fabric..very lightweight and sparkly…just perfect for the spring! I was wanting some new and stylish spring fabric for a nice Sunday skirt. So I splurged a little. :o) I bought two pieces of fabric. One piece of fabric got used for the skirt below.  


Donna and Lena in new skirt-3000 My granddaughter Lena and I..She liked my ‘coordinating’ ruffle flower. :o) 
I was planning to make another tiered skirt for myself with the second piece of fabric..and then my good friend Trudy of Sewing With Trudy reminded me about the contest.  So instead, I’m passing on this gorgeous fabric…to you!

But that’s not all…I’m also including some extra notions I had on hand..just to add to the fun. There’s a 14 inch zipper, ribbon, buttons, new needles and thread..and other goodies to use as you like. :o)


fabric giveaway 008-3000 
If you like to sew..or you like handmade things, be sure to join us this week. If you are a regular reader and would like to enter my contest..just leave a note.  You don’t have to be a regular visitor of Sew Mama Sew to enter.

But be sure to drop by Sew Mama Sew for a list of all the great bloggers and ETSY shop owners who are hosting giveaways if you can. You can enter as many giveaways as you like! :o)

Maria Killam said...

Loved that photo with you and your grandaughter! Sounds like great fun, I unfortunately am not so handy. I received a birdhouse from the Habitat for Humanity that I was to assemble, paint and send back to them al for a good cause for a contest, instead of using the glue gun they sent me I started nailing it together and ended up splitting the front panel right in the front. Not sure how to incorporate it into a design feature when I a paint it now :)
Have a great weekend Donna!

Donna, you are right, there are many fun giveaways on the list though I do envision using your giveaway fabric so far the most : )

Thanks for the comments on E & and her dress. I had so much fun making it and I surprised myself that I could do it! That fabric is Tutti Frutti and it is on sale at Joann's for 50% off right now $2.50yd and then with your teacher's 15% off that, I am thinking you could make Lena a precious dress too!! They have many styles and colors. I am off to get more this week.

Welcome to Comin' Home! If you lived nearby, I'd invite you over to my neck of the woods for a nice long chat and a cup of tea out on the deck. But since we can't do that, I hope you'll stay and look around. I love learning new things and sharing what I learn with friends. Comin' Home is where I share tips from my many projects. Let's have some fun together! XO Donna
