Giveaway Day

Yeps it's that time of the year again...it's giveaway day over at sew mama sew's
and guess what this year I am taking part by having a giveaway.


Okay first things first to those of you who are visiting my site for the first time let me give you a quick intro.

My name is Hayley AKA Mrs.Pickles I started this blog back in 2011 as a gardening blog. However since our gardening season here in Saskatchewan is only from May-September I needed to talk about something else during the winter. So it has evolved to showcase many of my other hobbies as well like cooking, canning and sewing and rambling on...I am great at that!!
In March 2014 my hubby and I welcomed our first child into the world and for the past almost 9 months she has been my biggest and most rewarding hobby :)

Okay enough about me..on to what you are really here for.....the giveaway!!
I have an amazing paper piecing log cabin/bear paws pattern as well as 2 fat quarters from my favourites pile. ( I think the white is Riley Blake and the Yellow is Red Rooster..but don't hold me to that) 

Please use  the rafflecopter dohicky to enter the giveaway. 
For one entry let me know your favourite easy sewing/quilting tutorial and followers new and old get a second entry 
  • Open internationally
Good luck to all




As per the giveway day rules the giveway will stay open till 
  •  December 12 at 5 p.m. PST.
  • A winner will be picked by Dec 14th and notified via e-mail and in a blog post. If your comment doesn't not link back to an e-mail address please leave your e-mail address in your comment. 
  • The prize will be shipped out by Dec 16th

Have a great day
