Ottobre and Star Giveaways

Two separate giveaways:
Make sure you enter both


Have you heard of the magazine Ottobre?
Oooh-la-la, oooh-la-la!!! 
Jump here to read more and enter the giveaway.  
Stay where you are for another giveaway.



I know this has nothing to do with sewing,
but my dad promised my readers last month that we'd do another 
Star giveaway!  Because seeing stars is sometimes a good thing!
Check them out at his shop and cleverly tell me which one you love.

Leave comments on this post for the star giveaway.

I keep it simple:
 01  Only one comment, please.
02   If you've left out vital information, 
erase your first comment before leaving another.
03   Winner chosen at the end of the month.
It's also nice if I can contact you somehow.

  2. A little poem:

    I dream about the wondrous things
    That tomorrow promises to bring
    My dreams take me where rainbows are
    When I follow my 'Atlantic Ocean Star'

    (the 'Atlantic Ocean Star' is BEAUTIFUL! and needs to live in my kitchen)

    ps-My dog's name is Lucy after the Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds song...

  4. I write without further ado,
    I'll tell you my choice, yes it's true,
    The star I must pick

  13. Lucy in the Sky, of course. The beatles are THE band of my youth, and now as an aging hippie I find their music a continuing source of comfort and joy. The different glasses, all clear and yet opaque in sections, allow the differing aspects of the sky to shine in the design of the star. I love it.

    Knock Knock! who's there?
    Orange! orange who?
