Giveaway Day with Sew Mama Sew



For those of you who haven't seen my blog previously, my name is Jessica and I enjoy all sorts of crafting... But mostly I quilt. Although, my last two posts were about my latest project an Apron. I started blogging my project so that I could share them with friends and family that wanted to see pictures of what I was making... But now I have made friends all of over the virtual quilting world!

I am a wife and mom. My husband is a youth minister and I work from home as an accountant/bookkeeper. I home school my 3rd grade son and attempt to get my 4 year old son to do a little "preschool" but he is more of the "un-schooled" learning style.

I sew/quilt/craft when I should be cooking and doing household chores, as well as entertaining my boys... sometimes juggling all of the "Must do's" with the "Want to's" is crazy, but I manage and my home is generally clean, the laundry eventually gets done, the boys don't seem to suffer from neglect, and we mostly eat home cooked meals.

I hadn't planned to participate in Giveaway Day with Sew Mama Sew, but after I saw the number of blogs in the giveaway, and started entering the giveaways, I thought, why not? So I am going to do my first giveaway on A Bushel and A Peck!

I have won a 2 fabric giveaways in the past couple of months and it was so exciting, I wanted to share that excitement with someone else...

I will be giving away 2 Charm Packs of Grace by 3Sisters for Moda as well as a coordinating fat quarter (not sure who the designer is).

  4. Hi there!

    My 14 y.o. daughter just picked out a bunch of fat quarters at our local shop. She's determined to make a quilt and we've got a good start going. So this spring, I'm concentrating on keeping her happy and motivated and enthused about her first quilt. So far so good, we have squares cut and first seams in place.
