Give Away Day!

I don't know what it is about Sew Mama Sew Give Away Day but it always makes me feel like Christmas morning, how about you?


I know you are all busy and have lots of blogs to visit so I'll try and keep this one short and sweet.

Up for grabs today is this cushion cover. I myself think it looks rather christmassy with the red, white and green but since no actual Christmas themed fabrics were used this cushion would look great all year round.



The give away is open to anyone, anywhere I will ship international.
No hoops, you do not have to follow my blog, twitter or heart my shop. Of course I love it if you do all these things, but none of that is required to be eligible to win.

To Enter:
  1. Leave a comment on this post. Tell me something interesting about yourself; a funny or embarrassing story, childhood memory, quirky habit, random fact etc.
  2. I love my readers! So if you follow my blog just leave a separate comment to say you do for a bonus entry.
That's it, two comments maximum per person please!
If you have forgotten something and would like to add a new comment, please delete your old comment and place a new one. This keeps the final count fair for everyone.

Please make sure I can get a hold of you through email. If your email is not disclosed in your profile include it in your comment. If you win and I can not get a hold of you I will have to draw another winner.

I will not answer any comments on the give away post, but rest assured I do read each and every one of them!
The give away closes Friday 16th of December at midnight CET.  I will draw the winner with random number generator and announce them here sometime the 17th.

Good luck!!

x Leila

  1. I was the only girl in the neighborhood, so we played all boy sports. One day I was jumping rope on my front porch, all the boys we're playing stick ball in the street, and my pants fell down! I was so embarrassed :) Thanks for the chance.

  3. I think any story I share here that involves me will be embarrassing, so I'll share one about my mum lol
    I've had pink hair for a very long time, lately when I've been redoing it my mum had paid more attention than normal "Oh so do you strip your hair first?" "so where did you say you pick up your colour?" you get where this is going! Last weekend she popped over to show off her bright purple "do" I think at 58 it looks outstanding and as she say's as she gets older she can say her purple rinse was a bit stronger than normal :)

  7. Let's see...when I was in second grade, I was constantly teased on the playground by a girl in my class who would run after me saying "shortie! shortie!" because I am short. It made me miserable.

  10. When I was little all I wanted was a pair of jeans to wear, rather than all the beautiful clothes my Mum and Grandmother made me. I didn't know at the time how lucky I was!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  12. Love, love, love the pillow! Embarrasing story: When I was about eighteen I really liked this guy, who was uber cool and drove a motorbike. I was talking to him at the pub and I accidently knocked a pint of beer into his helmet! Not cool at all, but I did end up going out with him..lol!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Once I shaved my head and everyone thought I was sick. Lots of pitty eyes!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I have lots of quirky habits, but of course at this time I can't think of any of them specifically... I do something embarassing practically every week, so it's hard to single anything out there, either.

  26. Lovely cushion Leila!
    Well... an interesting fact about me... I just learnt a valuable lesson in not to leave my sliding door open during a thunderstorm. I was sitting here writing emails when (and I do not joke!) a FROG hopped across my BED and landed on my laptop screen.

  43. Here's my quirk. When papers are stapled together the corners MUST line up exactly. If someone else staples something crookedly and it comes across my desk I will unstaple it and fix it. I think my former boss found this amusing and would staple things crooked on purpose.

    ReplyDelete
  44. At recent parent-teacher meetings at my daughter's high school, I ran into someone I had known during my own high school years (a fellow parent). This man has no idea that his legacy in my own repertoire of high-school-memories concerns the day that our math-teacher-cum-karate-instructor Clive (it was an "alternative school") called him up to demonstrate some kind of karate move, and my poor classmate had to stand in front of us all, trying to maintain his composure and dignity, with a very prominent erection in his blue satin gym shorts. I think this was nearly as embarrassing to me, as a 14-year-old girl, as it was to him. Well, perhaps not QUITE so...but anyway....

    ReplyDelete
  49. Love this pillow cover!! Here's a funny tale: Our kitchen counter was being changed so the bottom cupboards were empty. It was later at night when the kids should have been in bed, but there was my son in the kitchen and as I got closer to the cupboards my daughter shot out of the bottom cupboards scaring the living daylights out of me!! I still laugh over this one!!

    yesterday I was speaking with my new boss on the phone (I am currently on maternity leave and haven't met him yet) and was nursing my son at the same time. He is teething and deciding to clamp down while nursing and I let out a "ow..ow...ow..ow!" and then tried to continue discussing important matters-not sure what he thought-:) thanks again for the chance to win!

  64. Beautiful pillow, I'd love to be entered into your giveaway! Embarrassing moment - when I was 6 or 7 I fell when skiing and split my snowsuit right up the backside.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Oh, I love spewing random facts about myself. When I was in first grade, every day I would ask to go to the bathroom. I would leave, then come back and sit in my seat and wet my pants. Finally after the third time, my sweet teacher asked me why I was doing this and I told her: I couldn't find the bathroom.

  85. What a fun pillow cover!

    When I was growing up, my Aunt Vicki was my hero. She was a skydiver (with a bright red parachute that everyone called "The Cherry). She had a huge Oscar fish that would throw tantrums and rearrange the tank if he felt ignored. And her socks didn't match. Ever.

    I've followed in her footsteps, literally. I never match my socks, and the brighter and more obnoxious they are, the happier I am. :)

    ReplyDelete
  86. Random fact, any old rubbish on TV can make me cry, it doesn't even have to be sad.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Great givaway!

    And as far as facts go, I stopped wearing trousers when I was about five. Ever since my wardrobe is made up of skirts and dresses. And to make things a bit difficult... I hate wearing stockings. So I only do so when temperatures are about to hit freezing point. So up until today my bare legs are responsible for many worry looks on the faces of the old ladies I pass when doing the school run!

  88. Random concern - If I live to be 100, I'll never use up all the fabric in my stash!!!

  94. I have no sense of measurement--it has become the joke in my family, whenever I say that something's a mile, or 3 feet, or about an inch, everyone goes to measure, because I'm usually hopelessly off! kaseymgm (at) gmail (dot) com

    ReplyDelete
  95. This is gorgeous, Leila! I can't help myself - must enter your giveaway! As for embarrassing stories...when I was a very new and sleep-deprived mommy I had to run to the grocery store to grab something basic like milk or bread. In the checkout line I realized I was still in my pjs and hadn't combed my hair (for a few days probably). Nice. It's a wonder I had any type of footwear on at all. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  96. Mmm, I myself am not very organized but love helping other people become organized.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I love your blog!
    I´ve affraid to cut fabrics. I do everything, the measures, ando so on, but I ask for someone to cut and I say "cut, cut, do it, don´t be affraid!"!!!

    ReplyDelete
  107. I tend to be pretty clumsy- last year I broke my ankle while at my ten-year-old sister's bday roller skating party. I am 17 years older, so it was pretty embarrassing to have the kids surrounding me asking if it was broken while I tried to keep a brave face. I'm never roller skating again!

  122. My father is very awesome and funny, but when I was shopping for my first bra, I didn't appreciate his humor. The day before Thanksgiving, Walmart is packed, I'm sitting on the bench on the side so noone would know they were mine, and my dad holds them up and screams "Emily, do you want paper or plastic". I've never received so many blank stares.

  129. When I was a young teen, my family went for breakfast at Denny's. When my parents went to pay us kids were waiting for them and goofing around and I walked backwards and knocked over a huge display sign and fell on top of it. It was quite mortifying but now I just laugh when I think of it. :)

  136. Once in a theatre show I was invited to join the artist on the stage and read some phrases, but oooooommmmgggg
    no words come out, I was mute. So embarrasing and disgusting at the end of the show the main actor says that I will be great on the kitchen but not on the show, Ah!

    ReplyDelete
  137. Beautiful pillow! Pillow covers are my new favorite decorating item. Love how you can change the look of a room just by changing the pillows!

    ReplyDelete
  138. really beautiful pillow! what a super giveaway. hmmm... odd thing... i eat the food on my plate in turn, so that i have exactly the same amount of each item. and i don't like any foods to touch, so everything stays in neat little piles. my brother is the same way... must run in the family!

  142. What a gorgeous pillow/cushion it'd be wrong to not have a go at winning!

    Not sure if this is a random fact or funny story but here goes.

    I was attacked by bees once, honestly! I was taking part in a charity bike ride and one flew into my cycle helmet and got stuck. I went totally screaming hysterical (don't like buzzy things at the best of times) which attracted all the other bees and they all proceeded to sting me on the head. Not my proudest moment I have to say but quite entertaining for everyone else. You should see me run when I hear bee now ;)

  143. Hi Leila, I love your blog and should really comment more often as I pop in all the time. Random fact about me: I get unhappy if I don't bake regularly. How full my drawer of plastic containers is, is directly proportionate to how happy I am. The more empty, the more baking I've done, and so the happier I am.

    One of my favorite things that has happened in my life is catching my pet bunny eating cookies I left on my bed. When I found her nibbling away, she ran off with the cookie and hid under the bed. When I retrieved what was left, it had the cliche munch marks. It was awesome. Like mother, like daughter, we share our love of chocolate cookies.

  156. I live near the ocean, and I yearn to live high in the mountains next to a babbling brook with all handmade pillows and quilts.

  158. I can sing Amazing Grace to the tune of Gilligan's Island and vice-versa.

    I loved how you used a few squares of black and white lettering in this pillow. It really makes it pop!

  159. Nothing embarrassing, but a couple of interesting facts about me: I'm over 60 and I play co-ed volleyball with other senior citizens and I also play first base in a co-ed softball league. Boy, do those young guys throw that ball like a bullet!
    Thanks,

Story about myself..I work in a nursing home and one night I had worn a new bra to work when I bent down next to the bed to pick up something everything just came tumbling out, it had unhooked!

  165. When my twin sister and I were younger and our children were small, we looked so much alike and even dressed alike. One day her little boy came up to me and said, "Are you my mama?" It was so fun. Our kids even looked alike. quiltexas@gmail.com
