Due to some family issues, everything has been put on hold for a bit... including getting to the post office to fill out customs forms. Sorry for the delay.

Doing a combination of hand and machine on this one. (And trying out my camera settings on my new phone!)

So, I posted 3 giveaways without thinking how I'd award them.  Random might choose all 3 people who wanted the same thing!  So, I figured, just keep hitting random until I'd gotten 3 people ("I like them all" would get whatever the others didn't want).  But, luck was with me, and 1, 2, and 3 each hit people who wanted different things!

Without further ado: 

The yarn goes to:

The yarn is really cool!!!

Thanks for the giveaway...
New Hampshire... haven't been much past Boston, but I sure don't envy your weather right now...

The book goes to:

I like the book. ! Thanks for sharing

(Sri Lanka? nice! Haven't been further south than Tamil Nadu, but I'll make it across the water some day...)
And the headband goes to the person I chose first, who was going to get the leftover, but who got the wished-for headband anyhow:

These are so lovely! Thanks for the chance to be in to win one of them. :-)
I'd love any of these as a gift, but especially that headband - it's gorgeous.

Have a great Christmas! 

New Zealand!  That's the husband's desired travel destination.  One of these days...

Your prizes will be in the mail after I get your information; as mentioned, due to having to fill out forms when real people are staffing the post office, it may take a bit longer for the international entrants.

Thanks, everyone, for entering; a headband may make its way into my shop in a few days, depending on how many cousins make it into town; if not, then there will be some in the future :) 

And thanks for the birthday wishes for my mother!

Welcome to the Sew, Mama, Sew giveaway day!  (And my mother's 60th birthday!)

Today there are three options.

I'm giving away a headband, like I'm making all the (girl) cousins for Christmas.  (Knitted with a crocheted flower.)

And I'm giving away this little (4x5 ish) coptic-bound book, handy for writing things in.

And, in case you want to do it yourself, some boucle yarn, in three colors.  I tried (ignoring the label) to crochet with it (about 2 feet of the yellow), threw a fit, and decided not even to try knitting with it.  Maybe you'll have more luck!

To enter, tell me what you'd like - that's all.  Open until the 17th.  Yes, I do ship internationally (but it may take past the deadline for me to ship to you, as I can't use the automated postal unit for international shipping, and the post office is only open when I'm at work).

Watch This Space

I'm still alive!

My hours changed at work (I know, shoddy excuse), so I've been getting home later, and haven't had time to post things before dinner.  In six months.  Anyhow,  I'll be in the Sew Mama Sew giveaway tomorrow, so come back then!
