My Birthday Giveaway

 It's my birthday, so let's party!  How nice of Sew Mama Sew to host a giveaway party on my birthday!

 To celebrate, I have some handmade-by-me gifts for one lucky reader.

A Christmas print keychain lanyard,
a cute patchwork pincushion,
a crocheted felted wool flower pin,
and a paper-pieced Christmas tree pin.


Even though our silly Rhode Island governor is calling this a "holiday" tree, it is most definitely a Christmas tree!


 The felted flowers look so cute on a wool coat or hat.


To enter, leave me a comment telling us one thing on your Christmas or Birthday Wish List.

All the giveaways close on Friday, so I'll pick a winner soon thereafter.  Make sure I can reach you if you win, or I'll have to pick someone else, and that would be sad for you.


Be sure to click on over to Sew Mama Sew and enter lots of giveaways!  They are conveniently sorted by category. Totally awesome!

What a lovely giveaway. I only have one thing on my wishlist and that's a small digital scale.

annemarie said...

Lovely giveaway - pincushions are my weakness - love them. My wishlist consists of fabric and yarn - am not fussy!

Debbie said...

Happy day!! Top of my list is some ECHO, and always - a new cookbook.

Deanna said...

Oh, well...Christmas list is always fabric, mostly. Or other stitching things. I am pretty single-minded that way.

Jane S. said...

Thank you for the giveaway! The number one item on my Christmas list is a pair of flannel jammies. :)

Jen@thecraftingfiend said...

cute!
a new chair for my sewing desk is on my wishlist

SassyCathy said...

On my Christmas list - (already have it) - an hour long massage - - OOOHHH it feels so good! Get those toxins out of your muscles.
On my Birthday list - for next year ? - nothing special - I am satisfied.
Thanks for the chance to win
and
Happy Birthday (my sons birthday is on Christmas day - 27 this year... and we always had 1/2 year parties - celebrating his birthday on June 25th of each year).
Hope you get what is on your list for your Birthday and Christmas.

Happy Birthday!! Hope it has been wonderful. On my Christmas wish list is a pair of red leather gloves - oh and a long arm quilting machine, but I may have to keep wishing just a wee bit longer for that one. :)

Becky said...

Happy Birthday to you! Or in my house, Happy Birthmonth to you! Heehee.

What a great collection of sweet giveaways. And I think your CHRISTMAS tree is simply charming. I'd be happy to wear it! b.moews@gmail.com

Kristi said...

My top wishlist item is a new zoom lens for my camera. And a Kindle Fire, but I think that one is going to have to wait.

Libby said...

My top item is a ruffling foot ! I dream of all the things I would do with it....

SS said...

Cute. An embroidery hoop is on my Christmas lists

wipgirl said...

What a nice giveaway! And happiest birthday wishes to you! I hope you had a wonderful day.

I always have a hard time deciding on what I want for birthdays/Christmas because I'm naughty and guilty of buying myself mostly what I want. I'm hoping that this Christmas will be the year my grandma gives me the antique vase that belonged to her grandma.

Leanne said...

Happy Birthday! I would love to win those cute things! On my list is a good book and an afternoon or two by the fire to read it.

Michell said...

A GoBaby is what I would love

Jenna / liveformemories said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
Mine is in early-January, and I know my mum's getting me a certificate to have my machine serviced. After all my Christmas sewing, it really needs some serious TLC :)

*ps: thank you for having the Name/URL option on your Blogger blog! Not many do, and if don't have a Blogger account (gmail doesn't count for Google Account for some reason) or an OpenID, then commenting on blogs you love can be so frustrating!*

Lora said...

Thank you so much for the giveaway. I really want a new garbage disposal for Christmas. Mine died and I don't have the money to replace it. =)

Craftgirl83 said...

I'm hoping for a new scanner!

Elisa Black said...

Happy Birthday, Tina! We missed you at the Mod Conn Quilters meeting (I did 2 posts on it). Your giveaway creations are just lovely-- all of them! Thanks for this opportunity :0) My "wish" list would have to be quilty-related-- either a gift cert for an Amazon book (new book out from Stash publishers on Zakka style that I have my eye on) or of course gift cert to buy fabric.

Wicca said...

Happy Bday!!!
I have some books in my wish list and, of course, a new pair of boots ;)

Barbara said...

Happy Birthday! My wish list is simple- I want TIME to do all the things I want to do. See you Wednesday night!

Sew Bee It Clothier said...

I agree with you. The governor IS a bit silly! It IS a Christmas tree!
I am from R.I. but now live in Florida. I do fly in several times a year, though. I am from
Hope Valley!
On my list, that is very short, is a set of Fast Frames for embroidering. I know that I won't get them. My husband just won't. I will still be hoping for that Christmas Miracle!
Merry, merry to you!
Alison

Rookie said...

What a great colection of toys - thank you for the chance to win it :)

A holiday tree - pfff.

The one thing on my wishlist (and I'll have it on there for Xmas, birthdays, secret surprise days, whatever it takes) is a Vagabond cutting machine. Is that too much to ask?

What a great pouch - thank you for the chance to win it :)

Rachel said...

My current #1 wish is that my daughter gets home safely (only 6 more hours for that one. LOL) After that, I am easy. LOL. A little thread, a little fabric, all good. Thanks for the awesome opportunity!!

Kathy H said...

Love all the things in your giveaway. Thanks for the chance to win. I have on my Santa list, a new pair of applique scissors. Happy Birthday and Merry CHristmas.

Jingle said...

LOL! I think it's funny that you mention the governer's reference to the tree...I guess here in Mass, Gov. Partrick made a point of saying that ours is a Christmas Tree! I think it's all just silly...it doesn't really matter WHAT we call it, as long as everyone celebrates what is important to them! Your giveaway is fabulous! On my list is just some fun craft supplies! I love 'em! jinglesells at gmail dot com

Michelle {Daydream Believers} said...

Happy Happy Birthday!!!
I love your giveaway! One item on my list is the movie "Love and Other Drugs" - if you haven't seen it, check it out!

deserae said...

I am wishing for a new iPhone!

Esther said...

I put "thread" on my wishlist. :) I never seem to have the right color when I need it!

Archie the wonder dog said...

Holiday tree? That's just daft! I have quite a few audio books and CDs on my wish list - to go with the new ipod I think Father Christmas is bringing!! Thank you for the giveaway and happy birthday, have a fabulous day, I hope you're treating yourself as well as one lucky reader?!

Ashley said...

These are so cute! My biggest item on my wish list is a Nook Color! I love to read and can't wait to have an E-reader!

Linda said...

How about a lifetime supply of medium gray Aurifil thread?

Anita said...

What? a holiday tree...honestly, people really annoy me. Why celebrate at all...if you can't just accept that it's Christmas. Sorry, just in shock!

Okay, now, I would say that I LOVE your giveaway...so cute! and I don't really want anything for Christmas. I'm hoping to get some money to save and have a quilt quilted at a long arm shop. =) That would be a great gift for me. If I happened upon some extra cash, I'd buy an extension table for my sewing machine...but it's not a need...so I might wait until my bday. =)

Thanks for a chance to win!

Emily said...

I love that felted flower! Too cute. The item that's at the top of my Christmas list this year is a new hand mixer because I burnt out the motor in my old one. Boring, I know, but necessary!

The Sewing Dork said...

Sadly I want a Swiffer to clean up after everybody's snowy boot mess.

lemony lucy said...

My Christmas and birthday is pretty much the same, so I so want a wind-trainer. You hook your bike up to them to ride it inside. Or for fun, this jersey that looks like a spine on the back.
By the way, so impressed with the paper pieced tree.

hwscutie said...

It was a Kurieg Coffee maker, I got one on sale at Black Friday and haven't found it any cheaper since.

Literacy-chic said...

Great giveaway! I would really like a _Sewing Modkid Style_ book for Christmas, so if you have a direct line on Santa, you can let him know for me! ;) Actually, I would also like to win a giveaway! Great Christmas present, even if it gets to me afterwards!

bassenav said...

A craft space of my very own!
