Who's ready for a Giveaway?!?!?!

Happy 100th post Purpleheart Ori"Jenn"als!!! Well it's actually 102nd - but who's actually counting, am I right? A celebration is cause for a giveaway. I've been beating my brain trying to come up with some clever giveaway like other blogs do and I'm just at a loss. So what I've come up with is something I do best. My Sting Block Pillow Cover.
Said winner will be able to select the color & cover size of their choice to fit either a 12"x16" rectangular or 16"x16" square pillow form. Giveaway is for cover only. Sorry pillow not included.
So... who wants to WIN?!?! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. That's it! Easy Peesy Lemon Squeezy! And speaking of lemons!! I just love LEMON fabric. As you can see by my sample Sting Block Pillows below.

So leave me a comment telling me which size you'd like and what color you'd pick. I can do a monochromatic color scheme or two tone like the pink/yellow one. It's up to you! Or you can select a total scrappy - all color style. You pick! It's all about you today baby!! Contest closes at midnight on Thursday the 11th. Winner will be announced on Friday the 12th!

In other news....finished up the crayon rolls for my two cousins' boys for Christmas. Aren't these cute? And each only takes about 20-30 minutes. On the cowboy ones (for the 3 Amigos) I added their first initial to the outside so each could tell them apart when they were all rolled up. Each measures about 14" x 9" and includes 10-1" crayon pockets and 2-1 1/2" pockets for pencils, pens, rulers or scissors. Each also has an elastic band button closure.
I'll be taking special orders in my etsy shop for these - so stock up for Christmas! These make great little stocking stuffers or birthday gifts!
WOW! What a day! The ol' sewing machine has really been humming lately!


  1. You've been busy. The crayon rolls are adorable. The pillows are striking. They would make wonderful accents in any room.

    I would choose the 16X16 pillow cover size. I love scrappy but the monochromatic ones are gorgeous. I would choose the monochromatic in.....anything.

  2. Ooooh these are very nice!! The blue pillow caught my eye immediately - that is what I would choose, the monochromatic. Thanks for the chance!

  3. Congratulations on 100 posts!! That blue cushion would look lovely in Aden's room!!

    PS love the cowboy fabric!

  4. Congrats on your 102 posts....and I would love a scrappy square one..they are sooooooooooooooooooooo cute. Love your crayon rolls as well.

  5. Your crayon rolls turned out very nice. I'm sure they will be very-much appreciated. Congrats on surpassing 100 posts! I love the string pillow covers and would want one in 16 x 16 size......and I'd like EITHER scrappy OR largely green. Good luck to all of us who have entered and I hope you have many more blog posts for us to enjoy!

  6. These are gorgeous--I'd pick the 16 by 16 in a monochromatic yellow--mustards and sunshine, yes please--whatever shades of yellow you think look good and would go swimmingly in my yellow sunshiney living room.


  7. Either size! I'd like a brown one! Scrappy sounds great!! Thanks for a chance to win!

  8. Congrats on your big post and awesome giveaway! I love those string blocks. After making a very small string quilt, I wasn't sure I'd have the stamina to make more. They are so pretty, but so tedious!! If I were lucky enough to win, I would choose the 16x16 square in grays and yellows. I love that color combo! Thanks again for the chance to win!


Thanks for leaving me a comment. If you have a question, feel free to ask and I'll email you back!
