Giveaway Day!

UPDATE - GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED - THANKS SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED

I am linking up with Giveaway Day over at Sew, Mama, Sew!  Click on the button to find a whole heap of other bloggy giveaways!


This is my first ever giveaway!  Up for grabs is this very sweet charm pack of Sew Stitchy by Aneela Hoey for Moda - 42 5 inch squares of light and airy sewing-themed fabric.


If you are new to my blog, please feel free to take a look around!

I want to keep this super simple, so all you need to do to be in to win is leave a comment.  I really want to give regular readers an extra chance, so if you are a follower, leave me a second comment letting me know that for a second chance to win.

You can tell me anything you like in the comment, but to give you a start, I would love to know if you have ever been to New Zealand (kiwis, just let me know that you're reading!).

The giveaway is open until 2.00pm Saturday 8 December New Zealand Daylight Savings Time (5.00pm Friday 7 December Pacific Standard Time).  I will then use the random number generator to choose a winner and post the results shortly after.  I will ship internationally, but I can't guarantee it will arrive before Christmas - just think of it as a New Year's present!



Good luck everyone!

EDIT - there are a whole bunch of no-reply bloggers who have left a comment without an email address.  If I cannot contact you, you cannot win.  If you are a no-reply blogger, please make sure you leave your email address in the comment.  Thanks!

UPDATE - GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED - THANKS SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED
