sew deerly giveaway

Well hello!  How is your week going so far?  Are you ready for Christmas?  I'm not.  But then again I never am.  And yet Christmas still comes anyway and things always work out. :)

I've been doing a little pre-xmas shopping for myself ...

These pretties came in the mail yesterday.  When I emailed my friend Kerri at Sew Deerly Loved to tell her the fabric had arrived and how much I love it, she offered to do a giveaway for you, my dear readers!  I'm very excited for one of you to win this bundle of sweet Japanese fabrics. :)

Japanese, ATSUKO MATSUYAMA, 30's Collection, Fat Quarter Bundle of 14

To enter this fabulous giveaway to win 14 FQs of Atsuko Matsuyama's latest fabrics, simply leave me a comment saying what Christmas sewing (if any) you are doing, already did or plan to do (no one will know if you don't get to it!).

Comments close Sunday Dec 22nd and I'll announce the winner on Tuesday Dec 24th. 

Oh, and one more thing ... everything over at Sew Deerly Loved is 20% off right now so if you're looking for a gift for someone (like maybe yourself, possibly?) check out her shop.  I never leave empty-handed!

I just started a Christmas quilt. Yes, it is the 11th hour. Well, there is always Christmas 2014.

I completed a cross-stitch golf-theme ornament for an ornament exchange with my ladies golf league. Hope to make a child's quick fleece blanket to give as a gift. Darling give-away fabrics.

I just dropped off 6 quilts to my long arm quilter. Why do i wait til the end of the year? Cause I have so many that I must get out of my head and into fabric. Creativity won't slow down. Would love to create something 'deer' with that lovely soft purple and blue C

I made some sachets for my friends in my sewing group. I wish that I had more time to sew before Christmas. Happy holidays!

No Christmas quilting for me. I am too busy baking holiday cookies and other goodies.

I made some pretty cute potholders (for myself!) that I can't wait to use on Christmas Eve!

Just finished embellishing some plain white tea towels using Kate Spain's "Joy" fabric line. They turned out so festive! Now I've got to finish up three pairs of pajamas for the grand kids. Better get cracking!

I made and mailed off coasters, mug rugs, and tea wallets to some long distance friends. I just this weekend finished a purse for my DIL, and I have to finish up a baby doll quilt for my great niece. I also made a taggy/lovie blanket for my grand baby.

What a wonderful giveaway! Thanks to you and Kerri for the offer!

I am doing a kitchen theme this year for gift-giving...aprons, napkins and hot pads. (6 dozen napkins thus far!) Having fun coming up with appropriate fabrics for everyone. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win these fabrics...YUMMY! Looking forward to seeing what you do with yours.

Today I finished my mom's quilt! Next Christmas I will start earlier. I don't like sewing down to the wire, lol.

I just finished a wall quilt filled with all the things (barn, tractor, church, etc) that were important to my Dad. He had to go into an alzheimer home this summer. I hope he'll smile whenever he looks at it.

Planning to start a quilt for my son for Christmas. He joined the Army a few months ago and has been posted to a city just over 2000 lms away from us, so I thought I would make him something to remind him of us each day and of how much we love him. He's coming home for Christmas in two days so I am very excited. And of course it means I better get sewing! What's a little more pressure on myself at Christmas!!

Gorgeous fabric, the deer and cherries are so adorable. I was lazy and only made some frilly Christmas towels. They are in the mail and I hope everyone likes them. Thanks to Kerri for the great giveaway and Merry Christmas to all.

I made my daughter a comfy dress to wear Christmas afternoon so she doesn't have to wear her stiff, boughten dress too long!

Oh! I've had the bundle in my favorites on Etsy! Fingers crossed. I just finished a quilt for my mother-in-law that I'm giving to her for Christmas.

I have been doing a lot of Christmas sewing:-)
I'm working on a quilt for my husband which will be the first quilt I have ever made that will be just for him! It's super manly which is also a first for me.
I have already made two makeup pouches for my 2 sweet sisters. I have one more gift I would like to still make but I'm not going to stress myself out so if I get to it then great and if I don't then that's fine too.
Thanks for the chance at your giveaway!!! FINGERS CROSSED:-)

I have been putting together my Temecula Christmas quilt, but s great nephew was born yesterday, so I'm going to get the label on his quilt and get it sent ASAP. Meanwhile, I just finished a sewing supplies organizer for a friend.. I love these fabrics!

I have ordered from Kerri before and she is amazing to work with! She has some cute fabric for sure!

I made a DWR Metro Rings quilt for moi and my family this year and a scarf for my MIL. Oh and some PJs for my 6 yr old son.

Thank you kindly for hosting this giveaway!

Oh, I love that bundle of fabric! I'm actually not doing any sewing for Christmas this year - how crazy is that?!!?

I am currently working on little zipper wallets. I have 10 cut out and two done... I better get it done!
December 17, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterLynne Tilley
I made a few zippered pouches and filled them with goodies.

I've been sewing up a fall quilt. Don't you love that? A fall quilt that still isn't done in the winter. Aahhhh. No really, I think I'll have it done soon :).
I've made potholders and piles of "coasters" (I think they are too small to be called mug rugs or perhaps I'm dating myself). I've also made a christmas quilt for my brother and his wife, and stockings for my daughter and her boyfriend. And I just finished putting the binding on a tree skirt for my daughter as well! I can't wait until Christmas!

I plan to sew some school snack bags for my boys. Maybe I could make a snack bag for myself with those fabrics ...

December 17, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKerrie
oh my goodness those are lovely! I made lots of Christmas gifts, mini quilts, bags, pillows. But my biggest and favorite Christmas sewing this year is a queen sized Christmas quilt that is now on our bed! It makes me smile
December 17, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterEllyn
I was planning on making MANY more zip pouches for some friends and family... turns out only the chosen few will be receiving them! I'm also working on a quilt for a client that is turning out way larger than I dreamed of, but I'm pretty sure it will be wonderful!

No Christmas sewing in particular this year. Just a little quilting on the side to keep myself sane during the busy season! Cute fabrics -- thanks for the chance to win!
December 17, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterSarah B.
I made a Christmas table topper (for me) and a Christmas mini quilt to hang in my office. This year I didn't make any gifts for others because I felt too pressed for time.
December 17, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJackie
I'm working on a Christmas stocking (in a chevron pattern) for my granddaughter. Lovely fabric, thanks for the giveaway!

I made my mom a tote bag for Christmas.

I just finished sewing potholders for my sister. I used NanaCompany's tutorial, which was great, and I am very pleased with the results. There's lots of other sewing happening around here, but not specifically for Christmas, so the pressure is reduced. Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

I have 3 flannel quilts completed for my kids and their spouses. They will keep them warm at their camps this winter in the north Maine woods. I have 7 table runners done and 8 pillowcases done for my grandkids.
Next up will be to kit up tree decorations for anyone to make when they all gather at this Nanny's house on Sunday.
Merry Christmas to you and yours.
BTW I love your blog.

I am in the middle of a quilt for my queen sized bed. It is not a Christmas quilt and it will not be finished by Christmas. The only Christmas project I have going on is a cross stitch nativity scene and it is going very slowly. Maybe I can finish it for Christmas 2014. I love Sew Deerly Loved and I adore Atsuko Matsuyama's fabric. Thanks for the Giveaway!
