Giveaway Day! (CLOSED)



I am very happy to be joining in the Giveaway Day through Sew, Momma, Sew.  I have chosen to share one of my finds from a shopping trip, or treasure hunts as I think of them.  This is an antique sewing box -  I could not resist it when I saw it for sale!  Were you able to guess the item from the sneak peek earlier in the week?


The box itself is fairly small, 8 inchs X 6 inchs and 4 inches high (20 cm X 15 cm and 10 cm high).  From my research it is of Asian origin.


Inside the sewing box is lined with hand-painted silk.  The inside of the lid features a neat little needlebook.

In the bottom of the sewing box there are more beautiful hand-painted blossoms and an attached pincushion.  I hope you are as charmed by this little box as I was when I found it and that you will enter my giveaway.  I will be pleased to mail internationally so everyone is invited to enter.

To enter, visit my Etsy shop and then come back and leave me a comment telling me which item you like best.  Feel free to suggest other items you would like to see in the shop  as well! We are just getting started on Etsy so the store is still very small and advice is welcome.

You have until Friday midnight to enter.  Once you have entered the draw here, be sure to visit Sew, Momma, Sew for the complete list of all the blogs and shops having giveaways this Giveaway Day!  Good luck in all the draws!

What a beautiful little box! I popped over to your Etsy shop and thought your little rocking chair pincushions were so cute! Seems like one of my grandmothers had something similar. Good luck with your shop!

What a lovely find! I like the decoupage buttons, though I wonder how they'd stand up in the wash. Also, some of the pictures are a bit dark on my screen- have you tried adjusting the light balance with photoediting software? It's easier than it sounds and can make a big difference (plus, then you can take pictures in diffuse light to avoid harsh shadows, yet still get them bright enough to pop).

I love Crazy quilts best of all quilting genres. I think the Under the Sea is stunning. The shells you've created are remarkable standouts. In your etsy shop the candy dish and the mirror set are my favorites. Lovely items. The sewing box is a fabu find, certainly. The irises would look lovely on a quilt, don't ya think? Too bad I can't paint! Tina

Well, if I was working on the dollhouse with my gds like I keep thinking I will then I would like the little miniature tablecloth best. BUT since I'm not and if I had older gds who would value the dresser set I would pick the dresser set as my fav and buy two but they are only 6 and don't know the value of such items. Right now they only value their fav stuffed animal/doll. So, I guess it boils down to I LOVE the buttons. I'd say I love the candy dish BUT I just gobble up candy out of the bag so it has no time to reach any dishes.

Love my chooks!

Chickens have got to be frugal, right?  They love to forage around the yard looking for things to eat and, in fact, only eat half as much feed as when they are penned up in the winter.  I love watching them out there too, interacting in their little social ways.  When they are outside foraging the egg yolks get a lovely bring colour and are so much more appealing than pale store eggs. Unfortunately, we heard from the neighbour last weekend that something got in and killed most of their chickens.  Not too sure what it was although I thought it sounded like a weasel since it didn't take the birds, just killed them and left them.  Of course, that could easily be a loose dog too.  The only thing we have caught sight of is a fox hanging around but I am inclined to disbelieve she is to blame since I think she would have taken the birds with her and wouldn't have killed so many at once.   In the meantime, my chooks have had their freedom curtailed until we determine if it is saf

Waste Canvas Tutorial (Cross Stitch)

I was preparing to put a small cross stitch motif on a crazy quilt block when I remembered I had promised to do a tutorial on doing this with waste canvas, so here it is. You need to find a small cross stitch pattern you like that will fit in the space you have and figure out how large a piece of waste canvas you will need. Most cross stitch charts are graphed into 10 X 10 squares like the ones above. Waste canvas looks like needlepoint canvas except a little lighter-weight and is marked off in 5 stitch divisions by the blue threads. It comes in several sizes, 14 count being the most common and what I am using here. The canvas has double threads between each hole but you treat them as one unless you are doing a quarter or three-quarter stitch - they come in handy then as you can put your needle between the double threads to make the half stitch. I allowed myself half an inch on all four sides beyond the outer edge of where the motif will reach. Center the waste canvas on the spot yo
