Sew Mama Sew Give Away

Hello and if this is your first time here...welcome! I am a quilter who is obsessed with my dog, named Duke.

I am so happy to be participating in the Sew Mama Sew Give Away!
I'll keep it short today and as usual, provide lots of pics! I missed out on this Give Away last year so I'm giving double the prizes. :-D International entries are welcome.

Who doesn't love Anna Maria Horner? I'm sharing with you 6 fat 8th cuts of my treasured AMH fabric! Then for some fresh, red, yellow and lime fun, I am giving away a quilted fabric bin (maybe for your scraps? or as a gift bag? put a bottle of wine in it with a big bow? fill it with your notions?) and a flower pin cushion that I made using an AMH free flower pin cushion pattern on her blog. Want to make one, too? I'm giving you more of the fruit fabric and some Kona solid charm squares in red and yellow. Also a 1/4 yard of flannel in green and white. Oh and 3 yards of huge lime green Ric-Rack!

To enter:
1. Please follow my blog or let me know you already follow and leave me a comment letting me know.

2. For a second chance, make up a caption for what you believe Duke may be thinking in his photo below.

Random generator will choose a comment number on December 8th! Please enter by December 7th.

Good luck and thanks for stopping by!

Kris

  1. 'You'd think that by now she'd know I'm not a leopard print kind of dog...or a bow tie type of dog, for that matter. Not without a good jacket and a posh 'do' to go to...'

  5. I think Duke is thinking:

    `I`d better not have to sit for more than 2 seconds for this and there`d better be a good treat waiting for me!`

    PS Love all the pics of Duke on your blog! Actually our dog Bear, who we (very sadly) had to put down earlier this year due to serious illness, looked a lot like Duke. My 2 year old son always points to Duke`s picture and says `missing bear`when he sees your blog.

  6. Well, my dog would have been thinking..."How much trouble would I get in for playing with that bucket of pretty scraps?

  7. I'm babysitting my DH's nephew's two boys, one of which will be four this January. When I asked him what he thought Duke was thinking about, he said "Spiderman". (of course!) So I'll expand on that and say Duke's thinking "I wish I was Spiderman so I could shoot a web and get the heck out of here, after all, I look dashing in red".

    Thanks again for a chance to win.

  18. He looks consciously nonchalant, like he suspects something nice might be in that basket, and he's going to investigate as soon as your back is turned. "I'm just sitting here minding my own business - la la la - don't mind me!"
