Deck the Halls giveaway - cuksy


Polska wersja za bannerkiem serii Deck the Halls poniżej:)

I am really glad that I could take part in Deck the Halls series on Jennifer's blog (Ellison Lane Quilts).
I made a festive pillow using my pattern 'Not so spring deer':


All the details about this pattern you'll find on Jennifer blog HERE, as weel as on mine HERE (there's also a story why I didn't finish lap quilt pattern which I originally planned for this series...).

Preparing a pattern for this series was a great fun and now something which we all love: giveaway!

I am really glad that sponsor of Deck the Halls giveaway on my blog is Sew Fresh Fabrics:



I have opportunity to make shopping at Sew Fresh Fabrics several times and each time I was more than happy with customer service, quality of fabrics and prices! They have always great selection of fabrics (including Japanese imports, which I love!) and what is sometimes priceless: they sell fat quarters too!

There will be one winner selected randomly by Mr. True Random Generator.
Prize: gift certificate worth 20 dollars!

The rules are simple:
1) tell me in a comment which holiday colorway is out of your comfort zone (for example I never sew anything from THIS fabric, which I adore, but I was afraid to use black for Christmas...);

2) for second entry please visit Sew Fresh Fabrics Etsy Store and tell me in second comment what fabrics would you like to get if you win this giveaway:);

3) as always, my followers (old or new:) have another additional entry (just leave me a comment telling me that you are follower).

Giveaway will last 7 days from now (until December 11, 2012 CST) and I will announce winner on Wednesday (December 12, 2012).
Please make sure that I can contact you! (if you are no-reply blogger, please put your e-mail in comment).

Good luck!


Polish version

Bardzo się cieszę, że mogłam wziąć udział w serii Deck the Halls na blogu Jennifer (Ellison Lane Quilts).
Uszyłam świąteczą poduszkę korzystając ze wzoru "Niekoniecznie wiosenny jeleń" (zdjęcie powyżej:).
Więcej o moim wzorze znajdziecie TUTAJ, ale również na blogu Jennifer TUTAJ.

Przygotowanie wzoru było fajnym wyzwaniem, a teraz coś, co wszystkie kochamy: tkaninowe cuksy!

Bardzo się cieszę, że sponsorem cuksów w ramach serii Deck the Halls jest sklep Sew Fresh Fabrics:

Kilkakrotnie miłam okazję zamówić tkaniny w sklepie Sew Fresh Fabrics i za każdym razem byłam bardzo zadowolona z obsługi klienta, jakości tkanin i cen! Sklep jest świetnie zaopatrzony (można tam znaleźć również japońskie tkaniny, które uwielbiam!), a także oferuje coś coraz rzadziej spotykanego ostatnio: tłuste ćwiartki!

Zwycięzcę wybierze Pan True Random Generator.
Nagroda: bon na zakupy wart 20 dolarów!

Zasady są proste:
1) napisz w komentarzu jaka kolorystyka świąteczna nie jest w Twoim typie (np. nigdy nie uszyłam nic z TEJ tkaniny, choć bardzo mi się ona podoba, ale jakoś od dawna nie mam odwagi na to by czarny pojawił się w naszym domu na Święta...);

2) druga szansa to drugi komentarz w którym napisz co wybrałabyś z oferty sklepu Sew Fresh Fabrics gdyby szczęście podczas cuksów uśmiechnęło się do Ciebie:);

3) jak zwykle, moi obserwatorzy ("starzy" i nowi:) mają dodatkową szansę (wystarczy zostawić oddzielny komentarz i "powiadomić" mnie o tym).

Cuksy trwają tydzień (do końca 11 grudnia 2012 r.), następnego dnia ogłoszę Zwycięzcę.
Jeśli jesteś "no-reply" bloggerem, upewnij się proszę, że będę miała możliwość skontaktowania się z Tobą w sprawie odbioru nagrody (np. poprzez zamieszczenie w jednym z komentarzy adresu e-mail).

Powodzenia!

    OdpowiedzUsuń
  26. And on the sew fresh fabrics site - I've had my eye on Dandi Blocks from Commute by Jay-Cyn for Birch Fabrics for a while now.

    OdpowiedzUsuń

    OdpowiedzUsuń
  30. I hear lots about Japanese fabrics and would like to try some. When I did a search on Sew Fresh, it didn't return any J. fabrics. Can you tell me what are some of the names of the companies who manufacture Japanese fabrics?

    OdpowiedzUsuń
  33. Poszewka jest genialna!!! Widziałam ją na blogu Ellison Lane Quilts:) Cuuudo!!!
