Giveaway!

***Comments closed now!***
Dear followers!
Some time ago I announced that I would do a little giveaway when my blog would reach 300 followers. Now I´m at 306 followers, so it´s time!
I thought I would do something colorful to beat the winter blues. (Well, at least in the northern hemisphere, but of course you can take part wherever you live.)

You can win this little zippered pouch with a rainbow strip of 1-inch-squares on a black text background (Madrona Road an Mama Said Sew):

 
 It is lined with a sweet light green fabric with nice orange and red flowers. I like light colored linings for bags, it´s so much easier to find what you search for than with a dark lining.
 
The bag has a nice size for carrying a bit of hand sewing with you or to store your sewing notions.
(the zipper is approx. 8 inches long) 
 Together with the pouch you will get 55 charm squares in the size of 3 inch, freshly cutted from my stash.
With these squares you could make your own rainbow-y project to brighten the dark winter days.

 To take part, you have to be a follower (old or new) of my blog. This giveaway is especially for you faithful readers to say "thank you". :-)
Just leave me one comment per person, and if you like, tell me how the weather in your part of the world is. 
Here it is quite crazy today. We already had sunshine, snow, rain and hail. 
I am prepared to send this parcel anywhere in the world, so feel free to take part wherever you live. Please make sure that I can reach you and if you are a no-reply-blogger leave me an e-mail address.
I´ll leave this giveaway open until next Monday the 11th and will draw a random winner on Thursday.
Best of luck to you all! :-)

What a lovely bag! I'm crazy about text prints anyway, and adding a rainbow is PERFECT! Thanks for the blog, thanks for the chance to win :) (and our weather here in CO is unseasonably mild and quite dry.)

MatSarahB said...

Fantastic bag! The weather up here is sunny and cold (very cold). We're new to the Adirondacks and according to the postcards we're supposed to be smothered in snow. Where is it, eh? Thanks for all the great inspiration!

straythreads said...

such cheerful colors!!! to match the sunny day here in central South Dakota its 35 F so the snow is melting with a gentle breeze out of the NW. I'm putting my boots on after lunch and going for a walk.

What a gorgeous pouch!! I love the charm squares, too. I am a happy follower of your blog and I am enjoying peaceful snow flurries this morning. Must be cold out there, but it is cozy by the fire. Congrats on reaching such a great milestone!!

Weather here in the Pacific NW: grey, rainy day, then it gets dark. Repeat until June. Sigh.

Joyce Carter said...

Hi Steffi.I live in the Southern part of the USA and it is in the 50's today. We have been having crazy weather here as well-lots of wind, rain and some snow over the weekend.
Thanks for the giveaway. I really like the pouch. And I follow you through GFC.
I have loved watching you make your hexie stars and flowers.

lesthook said...

Pretty! I live in NC and It is sunny and nice today.

syocom said...

Hey, I'm in the bay area of CA. For us it's a little cold in the 50's with humidity. I will confess it's nothing like what I'm use to where I grew up. In the winter it's usually 19 or so.

Martina said...

How lovely! Would love to win a sweet rainbow with the lovely purse. I am from Switzerland and at the moment it is snowing. And know what. Our heating system in the building just broke down!!! So definitely time to snuggle under the quilts,lol!
And I am a happy follower!

Karen said...

What a pretty pouch! I'm in San Diego, it's overcast and in the 60s today. Thank you for the giveaway. I love your blog, especially your hexies!

J.J. said...

Lovely. In St' Louis it is going to be in the 40's today. But in the last 2 weeks it has gone from 20 to 70.

Stacy said...

Anne-Mettes Oaser said...

Congratulation on your 306 follower. What a lovely bag and generous give away.
I am a follower of your blog and enjoy it. The weather in Denmark was grey in grey today, cold and with dark ice on the streets. It wasn't nice.

Janet said...

In the Yukon it is about - 20 with cloud and a bit of sun. Typical winter weather. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway and I follow via GFC.

heidiabc said...

Congratulations on your 300+ followers - way to go! The weather here in Cincinnati is better than it has been I suppose, hovering around the freezing mark with not enough snow on the ground for it to be pretty.

PippaP said...

congrats on hitting 300, It's wet, windy, hailing and raining in rural France today :)

Lisa Cox said...

Finger crossed!
Thank you.

The weather here in TX is SO hot!!!! Almost 80F today!!

Karen O said...

That pouch is just gorgeous! What a special giveaway. Here in Minnesota, USA it has been very cold - about 0 degrees F. It has also been snowing every day for 4 days now.

Karen said...

Love rainbow pieces... as for our weather, I'm in South Florida... woke up in the mid 50's, and it rose to mid 70's... I personally would like to get a few blasts of cold air, but so far this year, we haven't really had anything... nothing that required us to pull in the delicate potted plants... sometimes I'm jealous of these pictures of lovely quilts in snow, but then I think about living in it, and I'm quite happy where I am...

ShirleyC said...

Lovely little bag and so useful! I always love charm packs - wonder is that why they named them that!
Here in N. Louisisna, it's been very nice the last couple of days. However that could change at any minute!

todd ikey said...

Great giveaway, I can think of a hundred things around my house that this would be ideal for. Weather in Wellington,NZ is beautiful. I am writing this comment whilst lying down outside the front of my house on an outdoor beanbag :) had close to 2 weeks of sunny weather in the mid 20s (consecutive days). I have been following your blog since. Started blogging and very much enjoy your work!

ohiomom said...

I'm happy to be a follower. you have such a nice blog :) Our Ohio weather is cold and snowy right now with more snow on it's way, I think. I'm loving the bright fabric colors!

LJ said...

Oh, yummy - candy!! Our weather is cold, I mean it is February in Iowa, but we're having a rather mild winter again this year. Lots of sunshine so that makes the days of winter much easier on my spirit. Congratulations on reaching and exceeding 300!

Alison said...

Hello from New Zealand. We are having the best summer in years - long warm days with cooler evenings. Everyone has been swimming, biking, walking and having bbq's. Perfect!

Irres Licht said...

Hallo Steffi

wie schön, dass ich deinen Blog gefunden habe und mich als Follower eingetragen habe.
Da will ich es jetzt auch nicht verpassen, ich den Lostopf zu hüpfen, denn das Täschchen ist super schön und Scraps kann man niemals zu wenig haben :-)

Ganz liebe Grüße, aus Burscheid, wo es heute mal nicht geschneit hat.

Sabine said...

Hallo Steffi,

Immer mal wieder schaue ich auf deinen Blog vorbei. Nun freu ich mich von dieser tollen Verlosung zu lesen und würde sehr gerne in dein Lostopf hüpfen. Also hier in der Hauptstadt ist das Wetter ebenfalls sehr verrückt. Momentan schneit es wieder. Vor zwei Tagen hätte man meinen können der Frühling steht vor der Tür.

lG Sabine

Andrea said...

quilthexle said...

Hallo, ich bin gerade auch von Nana aus rübergestolpert ;-)) und freu' mich sehr, Dich "entdeckt" zu haben! Deine Tasche ist superschön - klar möchte ich die gewinnen. Hier guckt gerade mal wieder für 5 Minuten die Sonne durch das Dauergrau ... ansonsten ist es kalt, und der nächste Schneeschauer kündigt sich schon an ...
Liebe Grüße
Frauke aka quilthexle

Jan Baker said...

Love the clutch. I live in the NW part of the US and we have been in the 40s lately, but no snow for a while.

Die Fischerin said...

Auch ich "komme" von Nana´s Blogvorstellung zu dir rüber und habe mich gerade als 320. Leser eingetragen. Deine Minis sind eine Augenweide, so schön ... du musst ein sehr geduldiger Mensch sein ...
Liebe Grüße von mir

...Gabi said...

Hallo,
bei diesem grauen Himmel tut Farbe gut, und weil mir Dein Täschchen sehr gut gefällt, versuche ich mein Glück, und springe in den Lostopf.
Mein Englisch ist leider gar nicht gut, und deshlab verstehe ich vieles leider nicht, aber die Bilder deiner Minis sind total klasse.
Ich würde mich freuen, wenn Du für Leute wie mich, vieleicht einen Translater im Blog einbauen könntest, das wäre mir eine große Hilfe.
viele Grüße aus Köln
Gabi

Meike said...

Hallo Steffi,
das kleine Täschchen ist echt toll und ich wäre gerne der neue Benutzer. Mal sehen, vielleicht ist mir das Glück ja hold.
Nach dem Post auf Nana's Blog hast Du jetzt bestimmt bald noch viel mehr neue "Verfolger", nicht nur mich. Die Miniquilts sind wirklich genial. Vielleicht wage ich mich auch bald mal an so was Tolles. Wie groß sind eigentlich die Hexies der Sterne und Blumen Deines momentanen Projektes? Wie wahrscheinlich überall schneit es gerade in Welzheim (Baden-Württemberg).
Liebe Grüße Meike

Francis Paul said...

what a great give away! Here in the Netherlands we have had snow for a couple of weeks but the last week it's snow free (JAY!!!) it's cold but that's okay.

Ophelia said...

Pretty bag and fabric! Since I'm new to quilting I'd love to win this addition to my stash.
Liebe Grüße aus dem grau-bewölkten Wien!

The weather here in Florida is perfect! start out with a light weight jacket, then it gets warm enough you can put on shorts if you want to change or leave on your jeans and a t-shirt in the after noon, end with a light weight jacket again. Not too hot, and not to cool either.

Hilachas said...

I'm a follower and it will be a beautiful day in Texas today. It's supposed to be a 70-degree day and I'm ready for it! Thanks for the opportunity to win your giveaway.

Patricia said...
