Giveaway! Giveaway!!!

I tried to think of a catchy title for this blog post but failed but as promised here is a giveaway of Seaside Home.

The book is full of great projects from quilts to stuffies and bags, all with a seaside theme. This morning I rustled up this from the book using my hand painted fabrics (of course). "Three Wish Fish" was submitted by darling savage, and is a fun, quick to do project.

If you would like to win a copy of this book leave a comment telling me the name of your favourite beach and I will enter you for the draw for a hard copy.

If you would be so kind as to promote this giveaway on your blog or facebook page, I will enter you for the draw for an e-copy of this book which will be sent to you direct from C&T publishing, who just require an email address. Just post a link in a separate comment for this.
In the unlikely event that someone wins both draws I will email that person asking whether they would like to take one prize and put the other back in the hat (so to speak!) or nominate a friend or family member to receive the ebook or hard copy.
Sound okay?

Here is a peek of my project and you can see more by visiting Amazon for a "look inside", or the C&T flickr page

I will post internationally and I will keep this giveaway open until April 23rd as I am off on my hols!!
Have a great Easter everyone.

  2. That looks like a great book for summer and my sister has a summer house on the banks, so great gift ideas. My favorite beach is the beaches at Acadia, each one has it's own special qualities and I just love walking around on them. I will post tomorrow, so hopefully I won't forget and can list your giveaway.

  4. My favorite beach is at the tiny lake I learned to swim in in Minnesota - Lake Linka. Nice and shallow, and fine sand. :)

  5. My fave beach is the whole seaward side length of Spurn Head, which is a spit of land that juts out into the north sea, in east yorkshire, Uk.
    It has the sea on its east side and the mudflats of the river Humber on its west side.
    The skies are HUGE and its a place you can walk and not see anyone at all.
    Its about 25 miles away from me and its a bolthole for me where I can unwind and ....beachcomb too!

  28. In Australia a favourite beach is such a hard thing to choose - there are just so many. I love to walk on the sand and collect unique sea shells with my mum while dad fishes. Now days my husband & brother in law fish with dad & mum and I and my sister chase the kids around and try to keep them from getting lost on the beach. Dad loves to fish at Stockton Beach (North of Newcastle NSW) so that is where we often end up.

  31. Such a lovely list of beaches. So I just have to tell you where my fav beach is. The beach at Sunderland. I have walked along it, ran along it, biked it, skate boarded it, well the promenade, my favorite time was the summer playing frizz bee with all my friends. It is such a deep beach being on a bay with the most golden sand. I now live in Australia and truly long to find a real beach like mine left behind back home. I still have the frizz bee, now well over 30 years on.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
