Handmade Giveaway

One of the things that I want to do this year is make more time for sewing and making things. For both my house and others. I was able to work on a bunch of things before Christmas and it was just so relaxing and fun to create handmade gifts for people. So when I saw Laurel's blogpost. I wanted to join in on the fun!

So I'm going to give away 5 handmade items created by me to the first 5 commenters on this blogpost. I'm going to try and do my best to create something that you'll like, but it will be a complete surprise what it is. You've got to give me at least the next 6 months to get all 5 completed.

Here is just a sample of one of the projects I made for the Christmas season. A Baby blanket for a new little one our extended family. (I've been trying to teach myself how to quilt on my regular sewing machine... I have a long ways to go, but it's exciting to see all the possibilities.)

So is what is the catch? Be one of the first 5 commenters, post about this giveaway on your own blog, and do the same thing for your first 5 commenters. If you do not have your own blog but are willing to just surprise 5 other people with something handmade, I'll let that count!

I'm excited to spread some handmade goodness! What about you?

This sounds great! Count me in. I'm just barely trying to get a blog started so I will make sure that I surprise 5 people with a homemade gift.

I'll take the challenge, as long as I too have 6 months! I am thinking about making the cutest christmas blocks I saw out in blogland for next year. What's 5 more? I can't wait to see what you make! You are amazingly talented!!

Oh I want in, I did this on facebook and only 2 people commented, so I guess I only have to do it 2 right, maybe I will add the last three spots on my blog. Anyways. The quilt is adorable. It looks way cute. I hope things are well. Love ya- Tiff
