If in doubt...have a GIVEAWAY!

OK, only a little one, but my indecision got the better of me today!

I couldn't even write a list!

I chopped most of the Reunion layer cake into 5" charms, added a few extra fabrics to bring that up to the 144 I need for the twin boy quilts...



Not going to fib, I have kept most of the bunting, and all of the text slices for myself, but that's as far as I could get my head round today!

So I turned my thoughts to smaller things, the Fat Quarterly Retreat name tag swap.  Gathered a selection of bits, then faltered...

I think I need to do some stalking!  Partner, what are you going to wear!?

Then spotting that this would be my 600th post, and it's St. Patrick's Day, (I'm not Irish, but a lot of people are), I figured a giveaway would be just the thing; only this is as far as I got with the prize...

Sorry!

If you trust me enough to whip up another of Leila's scrappy leaf keyrings, well, it's only fair since I have been teasing you with them all week, then go on, just leave me a comment.

Just one comment each please; all you no-reply bloggers either sort it out or include your email address, if I can't contact you, you won't win; be a follower if you want to be, but that's just for my ego, and have faith that I will get it made.

I will leave this open for three days until 8pm GMT on Tuesday 20th March, then let Mr Random do the business.  Internationalists welcome!

Hope your Saturday has had a little more direction than mine; I'll put it down to sleep-deprivation, but little one is now on the mend, so hopefully things will pick up round here soon xxx

  2. aaagh, I hadn't even thought about what clothes to wear to London: thats a whole other thing to have to worry about!!!
    My day has been back to back rugby matches: all with the perfect results, so good day for me!

  3. Hmm, at the retreat, I shall be mostly wearing clothes... ;o)

  8. i`ll be wearing something hopefully 3 sizes smaller than I currently am! Thanks for the giveaway - I would love a little Irish luck at the mo, and no my Saturday has not been straightforward but all over the place. x

  9. I love surprises so whatever you make will be wonderful. Would love to win!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Nice little piles there ;-) As for what I'll be wearing... ?! Whatever still fits...

    ReplyDelete
  11. If it makes you feel any better, I have had to work all day today so have gotten NO sewing done at all. I love your term "internationalists" makes me sound so important. LOL Thanks for a chance to win what I know will be a great prize.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Don't blame you for keeping the bunting and text to yourself.

    ReplyDelete
  13. would love to win your giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  14. A key ring would save me hunting in my bag - the kitchen - everywhere to find the bloody keys! xx

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh yes please! I'd love one :-)

    And if the name tag is for me, I'll probably be wearing some sort of navy affair. Almost certainly with stripes, and boots. Or maybe birkenstocks if we have some sunny weather.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'll wear your tag for sure if it is for me! And would probably wear clothes to match it so that should make your life easier!

    Great giveaway and I'm not Irish either though the Scots came from Ireland I believe!

  17. Who would not like to have a keyring with these little gorgeous shamrocks and ladybugs? It looks like you are addicted to leaves now *gg*

    ReplyDelete
  19. yes i would love to win one of your keyrings they look great !!

    ReplyDelete
  20. If you're going with the black and white it should look great with any outfit! Glad she's feeling a bit better :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Finally, a giveaway you can't win!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. "I'm not Irish but a lot of people are" - you are perception personified ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Not Irish and not going to the FQR, bummer, but I am an Internationalist and would love to win one of your scrappy leaf keyrings.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I would love a leafy keyring, green is a good colour for leaves by the way, Irish or not. For my name tag, if you stick with black and white, it will work with my black t-shirt and jeans, or skirt if required, wardrobe, no problem. I wonder if I should be buying a hat and planning to spruce up?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I would love to win a leaf. I won't be wearing a fig leaf at the FQR!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I would looove to win a leaf - that would make my day perfect. I'm going to wear my COMFY clothes (elastic waist) at the retreat in case I have to sit on the floor at any stage (and that might happen if they run out of chairs to sit on as there are so many of us going!!!). Thanks for teh giveaway chance!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. A chance to win some scraps! I am so in....oh there was a mention of a leaf..can't forget that =D

    ReplyDelete
  28. I so wish I wasn't on the other side of the world so I could go to th FQR :o( Love the scraps, and would love one of your lovely leaves from them!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I am intrigued when Katy says she'll only be "mostly wearing clothes" !! What will she be wearing the rest of the time one would have to wonder?!

    Yes please, I'd like to win. And I might have an actual fighting chance this time since you can't win it :P haha

    I don't think you'll be making for me because I think that if you were it would probably be pretty obvious what to make me. Or maybe not? Maybe it's only obvious to ME haha!

    ReplyDelete
  30. My to do list and your to do list are identical! in other words, i had about as much focus as you did today. Sometimes wacky saturdays are a good thing though :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. As someone who loves colour but wears mostly black, grey, and blue, I say go for the B & W!

    And of course I would be delighted to win a scrappy key ring made by you :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm glad the little one is on the mend - maybe precious sleep will come soon! I'd love a scrappy leaf key ring! VermontPines at aol dot com

    ReplyDelete
  33. I would just love to win a keychain! I have the pattern now, as you know, but who knows when I will use it!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Would happily take a key ring off your hands!

  36. Those key rings are adorable. I would love to have one.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oooh! I'll take one of these keyrings off your hands! Lovely! Count me in!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Thanks for a chance to win! I'm waiting for my blogging/quilting mojo to return. All I've wanted to do this past week is sleep. I blame rowdy kids, excessive pollen (we're starting to hit the so much pollen you can write your name in it phase), and the stupid day light savings time that has confused the hell out of my body. I love the stack! Can't wait to see it sewn up!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love your scraps & your Reunion quilt looks to be shaping up nicely. Thanks for a lovely giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I am in need for a new keyring since I lost the one that was with my keys.

    ReplyDelete
  41. May the luck 'o the Irish be with me!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Always good to have more scraps!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh, sorry that you had to go without sleep! Hope everyone is feeling MUCH better now!

    ReplyDelete
  44. We trust you. If we don't we'll see you in June any way. :) The badge for the swap is on my mind too but my swapee is not on the internet so I'll have to wing it for colours.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh dear, my decision making skills vanished at the same time as my personal tropical holidays started, (and my short term memory vanished) - not looking good for the next ten years apparently ... And you are younger than me! Hope it's just a temporary blip!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I have every faith you will get it made....don't know how you do it but I know you do! By the way, did you cut all those squares with pinking shears or do they do a pinking roller cutter?

    ReplyDelete
  47. I haven't a scooby what I'll be wearing, but it may very well include some lime green or even turquoise :) would love one of your leaf keyrings - who wouldn't! (and don't tell any one, but I actually got some sewing done! Shhhh!)

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'd keep the really nice bits out of the layer cake too!! I love the idea of a leaf key ring - I do love a bit of green!! Hope the little one is fully recovered soon and you catch up on some sleep x

    ReplyDelete
  49. Ooh, incredibly cute ladybugs! I'd absolutely love to call a keyring with them my own. :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. I've loved the scrappy key rings you've shown us! I'm going to have to get me some Reunion too!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Seeing as how I AM Irish and it's a Paddy's day giveaway I think you need to abandon mr random and just choose me :-) I need, yes, need, a new letting. 'Nuff said.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'd definitely love to turn over a new leaf :) Thanks for the cute giveaway.
    I actually managed a little handstitching today at a playbarn as I was 'not well enough' to go swimming - yay, I'll try and be ill more often! Glad your sicky is getting better :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. OK, I don't know what happened but I got a funny error trying to post a comment, eek! Hopefully this one works.

    I was trying to say that the keyring looks like it'll be fab - the ladybird and shamrock fabric is very appropriate!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I managed to buy fabric on Saturday!! That is about all the sewing I did. So today I made pyjamas for three and a bag for a birthday.
    Need to do more but I am getting there. Hope your week improves.

    ReplyDelete
  55. 600 posts? You are a mouthy one, aren't you? Those scraps look fun and I'm sure whoever gets the name tag you are making will love it. I think you have my address to send the key ring...

    ReplyDelete
  65. It would be lovely to win and I have every confidence in you to make it : ) I also enjoy reading your comments on other blogs.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I would love to win - and I am very sure you would make it (some days it feels you make more in a week than I make in a year!) Sadly won't be at the Fat Quarterly retreat :-( - if they do another one next year, maybe then!) but hope your partner gives you some clues.

    ReplyDelete
  67. That four leaf clover fabric with the little ladybugs is so cute - it would be prefect in one of the keyrings! Thanks for the chance to win!
