An Orange Giveaway

 If you've visited my blog before or know me in real life, you probably know I'm a fan of the color orange. For Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day, I decided to give away some of my favorite handmade things. Orange, of course!


The prize pack includes a mini paper pieced lapel pin, an orange key fob, and a string pieced mug mat (8x11"). The Sun Star plant is not included, but isn't it pretty?


I've been making these tiny pins for almost 20 years. Pin it to your lapel, tote bag or bulletin board. 

To enter, tell me your favorite color. Be sure I can contact you if you win, or I'll need to select someone else. FYI, I've been having trouble reaching some google+ commenters, so please check your profile to make sure your email address is accessible. I'll be picking a winner on Saturday morning, May 17.

 Visit Sew Mama Sew to see all the amazing offerings. There are two pages of links- one for supplies and one for handmade. What fun!

http://www.sewmamasew.com/2014/05/giveaway-day-handmade-items-2/

Have a sunny, orange day!


Edit 5/17/14: Giveaway is now closed and the winner is Jacquline in Pitt Meadows.

I may be too fickle to have a consistent favorite when it comes to color. Greens are always good, but lately i am very attracted to ORANGE!

not sure if my comment went through so I am doing it again.
My favourite colour is red - the right kind of red mind you. I have favourites that come and go as well - have been partial to lime green for a few years now but not to wear.
I love your Dutchman's Puzzle pin and would love to win it.

I absolutely adore your pins. They must be so fiddly to make and I love the colours. I tend to go more towards cool colours because I live in a hot country so I like greens and blues.
