The Great Giveaway!

My copies of the sewing calendar have arrived, and it's looking pretty good, Megan has done a fantastic job in pulling it all together.  There are 2 projects per week from a huge variety of designers including :  The Long Thread, Elsie Marley, Sew Christine, Rachael Rabbit, Bella Dia,
 Pink Chalk Studio and there are 3 projects in there by me.  

(The calendar is available to purchase here or here)

So, now for the good part!  The great giveaway part!!

There are 3 prizes in total, top prize being a calendar, and for the other 2 winners, they will receive a little pack of materials (fabric, felt, buttons etc), and a copy of either the kitten or the hedgehog pattern as was featured in Sew Hip magazine (you can see them in the blog sidebar), so there are 3 chances to win.

Just leave a comment on this post before midnight (GMT) on Sunday 30th August, and I will get the random number generator to do it's magic.
