Another giveaway!

Hey ya folks!  SewMamaSew! is having another Giveaway Day (really several days... so you have plenty of time to peruse all the blogs and goodies).  It was so much fun participating last time that I just had to do it again.  Click the icon below to check out all the generous giveaways being offered.  In addition to the chance of winning a fabulous prize, you might even discover a great new blog... or two... or three... to follow.


I'll be giving away a cotton canvas apron in a black and white IKEA faux wood grain print.  Comfortable.  Durable.  Designed for gardening, but also great for crafting, cooking, or anything else for which you might possibly need an apron.



Simply comment on this post anytime before Friday, May 25 at 5 pm PST.  You can write whatever you want in your comment, but if you're looking for a specific topic, feel free to share the name of a great book you've read lately... or your favorite vegetable to grow... or something you're looking forward to this summer.  Please be sure that I have a way to contact you if you are the winner!!  If your email is not connected to your blogger profile, please include it in your comment.  I will use Random.org to chose the recipient of this indispensable apron.  I'll announce the winner by May 27.  I am happy to ship domestically or internationally.

If you like my blog, I'd love to have you as a follower.  But that's up to you... I'm just sayin'.

  2. Love this apron! So different. I just finished reading Divergent and the 2nd book called Insurgent. There is a 3rd one coming out sometime that will be called Emergent. I can't wait to read it. We are gardening right now as are a lot of people but one of our fave veggies is okra! Love it.

  14. Awesome apron! I've been meaning to make one for myself (since I get so my clothes so dirty gardening lately) and maybe now I won't have to! I recommend Colum McCann's Let the Great World Spin, not because I need something to say, but because it is a genuinely great book. Happy Monday.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wow, do I love that apron! I really don't think I could wear that to do gardening, it is too cute for my messy self. Of course gardening at this point means only hacking back the weeds. In fact we just had our lawn put in Saturday! Guess if I win that apron, I'll just enjoy wearing it around the house!

  25. Digging the fabric! I just read the Hunger games and watched Downton Abby on DVD

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wow. I love this fabric! I've never seen it before. I like to stroll Ikea. I usually end up spending too much money on things I "needed" and Swedish meatballs. (How can you resist?)

    I'm reading Enders Game. I'm growing beets for the first time this year. Frozen yogurt is yummy, but is definitely not ice cream.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  28. Is it sad to say that I really enjoyed the "Fifty Shades of Grey" series!?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wow, that print is so unique! I am attempting to read We Need To Talk About Kevin. It's really really well written, but each sentence is dripping with meaning so it's a slow read.

    ReplyDelete
  30. What a cool apron! i collect aprons and would love to add this one to my others. I also craft and use my aprons mostly for that, and display them as well (can't put them away, they are too pretty). Thank you for participating.

  86. I love wearing aprons for gardening. My tissues, gloves, wipe rag all in a pocket make it so easy. Also the keys, which I left out overnight the other day because I put them on the fence post and not in the apron I wasn't wearing. Lesson learned.

    ReplyDelete
