300 posts! Do you think Oprah would like to interview me ?

Who would have thought I would have so much to say ,
thanks for putting up with me !
300 posts is a good enough reason for a giveaway
but this one is a little different as I am
going to ask you to do a few things .

Visit my shop and choose your favourite pattern .
Come back here and tell me which one it is .
Also tell me what you would like to
 see in my shop next .


After all that effort , phew , I'll give a few prizes .

One lucky winner will receive a copy of Sew a Metre .
Another will win a metre of fabric in 4 fat quarters .
Another will win a pattern of their choice from my shop .

That really isn't so hard is it ?
Open to all , good luck !
I'll draw the winners on Wednesday night
Australian time .

P.S. Thankyou for all your kind wishes 
when I was crook , I'm much better now . 

This giveaway is now closed .
Thankyou for your interest .
Another giveaway next year !

Oo well I love everything but for a beginner like me ( I am trying sooo very hard!) I love the Sewing Machine Apron Pattern its brilliant, I am for ever losing bits and bobs and its perfect for that!

Hmmmm What else would I like to see well maybe some more unique helpful patterns for things just like the apron pattern, oh and it has to be simple because I am only just starting out!

Thanks so much for the chance to win!

Thanks for the give away.

Maria said...

Congratulations on your 300 posts. I always enjoy reading them.
I love all your creations but the one I would love is the Sewing Machine Apron.
Maybe you could make a nice Sewing Machine Cover to match.
Pleased you are feeling better.

Sarah Craig said...

If Oprah was smart, she'd be begging to have you on her show! Congratulations on the big 300! And how in the world could I pick a favorite from your wonderful patterns? They are all so cute...... but probably Toby steals my heart just a little more than the rest of them. And next? How about an elephant?

By the way, in the States, that book is called One-Yard Wonders - and it's great! I love the little tie back pinafore for toddlers - I'm getting ready to make another one for my granddaughter for Christmas!

Cyndi said...

Hi Clare! You don't have to include me in your give away, but I wanted to wish you congratulations on your 300th post! And, I do think all of your patterns are terrific! :o)

XOXO,

Cyndi

Triple century? You go girl!! (Do you think that is sufficiently Oprah enough?)

Quiltjane said...

I love Chris the Crocodile and would like to see a poodle (Apricot in colour). Oprah is missing out if she does not interview you.

Quilting in My Pyjamas said...

Glad to hear you're feeling better Clare. Happy 300th post!

Chris the Crocodile is my Favourite pattern. I think it would be fabulous to have fabrics to go with the patterns, so people could buy everything in one place.

And Oprah should interview you!

Sandy at Cookies and Cream Craft said...

Hi Clare, Glad you're feeling better! If Oprah won't interview, I will!! So...my favourite pattern is your Sewing Machine Apron. I must make one! I love the idea of having a little spot right there in front of me, while sewing, for my gadgets. And you know I love gadgets! My Purple Thang, that dreaded unpicker, screw driver, extra bobbins, etc, etc. And I'm waiting for that cat pattern too! Cats don't seem to be very popular lately. Have a great week, Clare. Poppet and Pumpkin say hello. *smile*

Christine M said...

Happy 300th post! Your patterns are all nice but I think my favourite would be the sewing machine apron.

Kerryanne English said...

Congrats on the big 300 Clare!!
Having just made myself a sewing machine apron, I wish I had of had your lovely pattern.

Hhmmm... next I'd like to see a softie kangaroo and joey. Sounds totally random I know (LOL), but a floral kangaroo would be cute.

Robyn said...

Glad to see you're feeling well again. Congrats on 300 posts! Lol, I have a big bag of advent goodies so I'll pass on the giveaway but when I have a dedicated table (not the dining table :( ) I'll be buying a sewing machine apron pattern. I think Toby needs a cat friend to lounge around the place with or to chase up a tree :).

gill said...

I'm sure Oprah would love to have you on her show but wouldn't you rather be on Strictly Come Dancing instead????
Fave pattern?? Frances the Frog!
More soft toys please!
Gill
