Mystery Giveaway

Well, its two years today since I started this blog and I have to admit I had strong doubts about whether I would keep it up. I never imagined it would become such a big part of my life and chatting to fellow bloggers all around the world would be so much fun.

I've even signed up to the Fat Quarterly retreat later in the year and will get to meet some of you in real life.

You all have made me laugh and cry (usually from laughing too much), have been comfort when things are tough and inspired me to keep stretching myself with quilting. There are so many wonderful quilts and ideas I've seen that fill the wish list in my head.

I also love how generous the quilt blogging community is. Not just with giveaways but tutorials and patterns, such amazing resources.

But, this will be my first giveaway and I'm not really going to tell you what you will get! I have a plan to make something, but it might all go horribly wrong and then I will have to come up with something else. Either way, the winner will have to wait a while until I get it finished, but I will keep you informed so never fear.

To enter, there are no hoops to jump through, no bells and whistles. All I ask is you leave a comment and give me a combination of two or three or four colours that you are interested in at the moment. That's it.

The giveaway will use (hopefully) the colours the winner has mentioned which is why I can't start it beforehand.

I will leave it a week before I draw the winner, so this will close end of play Sunday the 8th Jan. and of course international entries are welcome.

Thanks for sticking with me all this time x

Thanks for the giveaway. I like coral, turquoise/green and blue and I still love red and aqua together too.

I love surprises! I like turquoise/red/ and grey with almost anything!

Michelle said...

So tantalizing! Purple, green, yellow

Yay surprises! I'd love something in aqua and red - I've never made anything using it myself but I really want to this year because it's just gorgeous.

Congratulations on two years of blogging! I hope to continue to read your lovely blog for a long, long time. I already have one of your lovely presents, but should I get another, I would say I love all colours. Lately I have been thinking about pinks and reds again. But also blues, especially turquoise and indigo. I hope you have a lovely new year.

Marg said...

Congratulations, two years, and it's been fun hanging on for the ride.
This is a great idea, thank you for the opportunity of joining in the giveaway.
I think maybe reds and aquas too. I've been thinking about making something in that colour palette.

Happy New Year Shev and congratulations on your blogiversary. Two years is quite an achievement. I for one am glad you made it, and I love to read your posts. Sometimes they're funny, sometimes very thought provoking but they are always entertaining.

Im digging the aqua, creams and chocolates lately. Thanks for the opportunity to have a handmade Shevvy original!

Sarah said...

Lovely giveaway idea Shev, and congrats on your bloggy anniversary - look forward to saying hello in person in June!
Colour wise.. really cannot get enough of all shades of grey... but I'm liking a little orange and green in there too..

Helsie said...

I'm glad to have found you Shevvy and to hear about your life a daily struggles. I LOVE blogging and all the new friends I have met too.
My favourite colour combination is blue and yellow.
Cheers
PS. Happy New Year

It looks like I picked a perfect time to pop in and say hello! I have missed you and all of my other blogging friends and hope to catch up with all of you! Right now I think my favorite colors are any that have something to do with a peacock! I will be checking in on you again!

Sheila said...

Congrats on your 2 year milestone! What a good idea for your giveaway, I am always a sucker for b & w schees with a dash of another colour.
Happy New Year.

Congrats!! I really enjoy your blog and am ever so glad I found it. I don't have any special color combinations I enjoy but I do know I really enjoy all the color combinations you put together so I will leave it up to you! I love modern and owls (not that owls have to be in there). I trust you!

Sarcastic Quilter said...

Oh, so interesting. I like your blog and I'm glad you kept with it. Now I have to go check out that retreat b/c I'm looking at going to at least 2 this year. One is the Sewing Summit and the other is still up in the air. :)

Colors for me? Blues (deep grey or navy blues). Warm yellows (sigh...). Other than that, bright primary colors. :)

thank you for the mysterious chance!
