Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Day

***Sign Up is now closed.  Thank you to all who entered!***

Welcome Sew, Mama, Sew visitors!  I hope you enjoy your stay.  Have a look around, the giveaway will still be here 🙂

What’s up for grabs, you ask?  Since this last weekend was the unofficial start of summer, I thought I would giveaway something summery.  Whether you live on the coast or in the center of the country, I firmy believe there is a surfer in all of us.  To celebrate that, I created the Surfer Nelephant.


He’s yours for the low, low payment of leaving a comment about what you look forward to the most about summer.  Because I can’t possibly tell someone their idea of a good time is better than anothers’, I will choose the winner at random.  I just want to feed off your excitement.

You have through May 31 to enter, which is fortunate because I won’t be at my computer, and therefore will be unable to post anything that might bury this lovely giveaway.  I will announce the winner Monday, June 1.  And, yup, I’ll ship internationally.

(PS: Thank you, Larue, for enlightening me to this!)

Sneaky Peak

I’ve started my first serious knitting project.  It required learning how to use circular needles, which were so much easier than I anticipated.  I’m crossing a fine line here, posting about this project, because it’s a super top-secret project.  There is someone in blogland who can’t know what this project is.  In the meantime, I feel I’m safe enough showing this WIP picture.


Yes, it's a hat. But that's all you can know about it.

Okay, I’m not the best with ribbing.  Hopefully when all is said and done, it won’t be that noticeable.  Also when all is said and done will I give credit where credit is due.  If, until then, you notice somehow that this is your pattern, don’t freak out.  Your work is much appreciated, and will soon be rewarded.

Coming to a Blog Near You!

At Larue‘s urging, I will be participating in the May Give-Away Day on Sew, Mama, Sew.

I have an idea of what I will be giving away, but I’ve got a little less than two weeks to completely change my mind. 🙂
