A.R.K.

Anyone that has seen Evan Almighty will know that A.R.K. stands for Acts of Random Kindness.  Yesterday I received an A.R.K. from Siobhan (Scraps and Threadtales) In amongst the busyness of her move and all, she found the time to send me some lovely things for no other reason than she thought I would like them.  She sent me a beautiful mug...which is now my favourite, some fruit teas and some gorgeous fabric!  She thought the blue and white fabric you can see would be perfect for my Dear Jane and she is absolutely right..It is perfect!  THANK YOU!!

So with the momentum of kindness I thought I would put together two lots of things for a giveaway.

Here's what you have to do to enter...There are two choices.  Leave a comment on this post stating which of the two you prefer.  You have to choose..no saying "either would do" ...please only post one comment per person and make sure that I have someway of getting in touch with you (blog or email)...Winners will be chosen on Saturday, October 18th!

The first choice is a copy of the latest American Patchwork and Quilting December 2008 issue (the insert is one of the patterns in that issue) and 4 fat quarters .



The second choice is a copy of the latest QuiltMania issue no.67 (the insert is one of the patterns in that issue) and 4 fat quarters .



Tough decision I know :o)

The giveaway is now closed...thanks to all who played!

Wow, I've been reading this blog for some weeks now and I didn't know you're making a Dear Jane Quilt!
please post some pics of your blocks someday if you've got time!

As for the giveaway, I'm unsure if I should participate because I don't know if it's complicated or more expensive for you to ship things to germany :)

Doreen B said...

Thank you for your generosity in having the giveaway. My choice would be No. 1

Isn't it nice to be able to be generous? I enjoyed my little give away.

Hmm, I'm spoiled for choice, I'll go for Number one too.(Had to toss a coin!)

Sara said...

Please enter me for choice No. 1. Thank you

I love that Siobhan sent these treasures to you, just because she knew you could use them and just because! Number 2 is my choice, love that magazine! Have a really good day, Jane!

Hello Jane
You really are very generous. I love the bibs that you and DD1 made for her teacher :) I like Number 1.
Thanks!

kcamou said...

What a wonderful surprise for you! I'm sure you will be smiling for many days from that alone.

It is so sweet of you to host a giveaway. They are both so nice, but I think I'd go for Choice #1.

~Kristie said...

Please enter me for Choice #2. :)

Lynda said...

Please put me down for the American P&Q (and remember that postage wouldn't be an issue should I win!)

anne bebbington said...

Definitely the first one Jane please

marjay said...

You know, this is REALLY difficult....but since I live in France and have easy access to Quilt Mania I will have to pick Number One. Now I shall keep my fingers crossed.

Karol-Ann said...

Oh bother! Why can't I say either. LOL. I love those fabrics in number 1 - yum!
What a nice gift from Siobahn. She also sent me something nice (roses!!) and I too was amazed that she could find the time considering the huge undertaking of their move! Quilters are the best!

Dandelion Quilts said...

Oh, I think I like number 1. But having to pick does add a bit of fun. Thanks for the giveaway!

Joy said...

Both magazines look great ... but I'm going for No 1 please cos the fabrics are so gorgeous.
Thanks :o)

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

I have that blue and white fabric, or I did - its in a quilt now. I wonder what happened to that quilt. I think my daughter stole it!! It's really nice fabric, all those lovely things are great, what a nice kind act.

Rose Marie said...

#2 please and you are so kind to offer these goodies!

maggie said...

What a wonderful giveaway and thank you for the generosity. I just found your blog and will now take some time to do a good read. Oh yes I like #1, should I happen to be the lucky gal.

Jackie said...

Random acts of kindness are the best! And usually make your day a little brighter. I would choose #2, bright and cheerful! Thanks for letting me participate.

Jane - tough choice but choice 2 if I have to choose!

We should get together soon and compare how strong our accents are still!

Jeanne said...

I love both magazines, but will say #2 as my choice.

Sarah Jayne said...

Love the new template for your site. I also love Quiltmania.... hope I'm lucky...

Tanya said...

Your photos are gorgeous! I love the one of your machine quilting! I love the colors in Choice 2! Something I wouldn't normally buy for myself but oh so striking!

Kathy Wagner said...

You drive a hard bargain! It IS really hard to pick one over the other! If forced to choose, I guess I'll pick choice #1... but only if you don't mind mailing to Canada??

BitnByAQuiltingBug said...

It's harder to choose than one would think. I'd love to be included in your drawing and since I have to choose one, I'd pick Choice number one. Thanks for including me.

lil said...

very easy choice for me, number one please
as I've made a subscription for the quiltmania magazine some years ago, so I have that one already

Lavinia said...

Hi, you are so generous! My choice is number 1. Thank you

caroline said...

I've became a blog addict a couple of months ago and I must I love to see other people creations... all those things I may have time to do one day.

As for the giveaway, I can only vote for number 2. As a French quilter, I wouldn't miss any issue of Quiltmania, I love the Japanese quilts and all those bright colours.

Can't wait for your next post.
