Sew, Mama, Sew! Giveaway Day


                    

As regular readers will know, I've got a surplus of zips and buttons at the moment, so I'm using some to take part in the Sew, Mama, Sew! Giveaway day.
Do go over and check out their site, there's hundreds of things on offer.

I've got two separate prizes.  

80 mixed buttons




and 20, 8 inch zips in assorted colours




To enter, just leave a comment stating which you would prefer, and what you might use them for. 
Giveaway ends on 25th May when winners will be chosen by random.  Please make sure I can contact you if you should win.  If I don't receive replies back from the winners by 28th May, I will redraw.




My next post will feature something that I've made using buttons and zips. 
 If you've got time I would love you to stick around a while.



                                            Giveaway is now closed.   


I've used my family random number generator to pick the winners.  This consists of asking my son to choose two numbers between 1 and 170 and he said:

32   -   One Perfect Day for the zips

and

95   -   Happy Cottage Quilter for the buttons

Congratulations!
