2) My May 2014 Quilt Market swag:  2 - 1.25" pins and 2 - 8.5" squares of limited edition fabric - one each of my turtle, and one each of my lobster. You can finish the edges to make them into a hanky, or use them for a cute mini quilt, or anything else your heart desires

3) Dritz Sewing Notions: Quick Turn tools, Mark-B-Gone, Assorted Craft Needles, Doll Needles, Pearlized Pins, Seam Ripper, EZ Pull Bodkin, Point Turner & Presser

If you'd like to win a this fun kit and caboodle - please leave a comment below and follow the info in the rafflecopter.

Good old teddies are always a winner although one of my grand children currently has a fascination with foxes- a bit more of a challenge to sew.

I like the doll with dk brown hair and pointed hat sitting on the dock in the picture so I would make her, and I also like the doll with the long legs and cape - as well as the cute little bears in blue and white print. So pretty. The limited edition prints would be framed between glass and hung in my grandchildrens' room - I am lucky enough to have a room that is just for them with all their toys and bunk beds etc. All the tools look great too - what a giveaway - thanks for the chance to win it.

Welcome to the Glorious Chaos! said... [Reply]

My good friend's little man has been in the hospital most of his life with an incredibly rare genetic disease. It is not even a named disease yet and so they have to answers and everything is trial and error. It has been rough for them, and their motto has always been "slow and steady" with the image/picture of a turtle! When my youngest was born he was 5 weeks early and stayed in nicu for 2 weeks and they came by with a stuffed turtle telling us about their mantra and how it has kept them going for the long haul. I would hopefully be able to turn this around and find something awesome to make their little with this turtle fabric square! Thank you for this generous giveaway!

toffeepops said... [Reply]

I think the first thing would have to be the doll/gnome, with cape! I have plans for a cat, out of recycled cord trousers. Thanks for the chance of fabric, and all these handy dandy tools!
