my swap to Whizz and Dana's quilt giveaway...

(not feeling very creative with the titles today, as you can tell)

here is a full picture of the Marsupial Eggs I sent Whizz as part of the Easter swap. The tiny eggs are filled with lavender so smell lovely and they can all hop in or out of the motheregg as desired. It makes a great pincushion (as I found when I returned from work one day to find every one of my pins stuck in it by the smallfry - they loved it - but what was their father thinking? pins, tiny children...most unlike him) or a nice wardrobe hangie with moth repellent qualities...


It was such fun to make...and I like those vibrant spring colours...the pale blue fabric is a re-purposed cushion cover in a kind of velour which was a nightmare to get through the machine


Now, get thee here (fast) to look at a beautiful handmade quilt and be in with a chance to win it...(tell Dana you heard about it here and you'll give me even more chances to win...well if it's not you it may as well be me, right?)


I will be back with my own giveaway shortly...this week for sure, but don't get too excited...it's going to be far less extravagant...

Marsupial egg! Who would have thought of that. Cute :)

I too, have been brainstorming about a GiveAway. There's just too much De-stashing going on at my side...
Can't wait to see what you're giving out!

Your eggs are too cute. I'm going to post about the quilt give away and tell her that I saw it on your blog. The give away banner isn't on her blog anymore. May I copy it from your blog, and use it on mine? Let me know if that's OK with you! Thanks!

Never mind about the banner. I found it on a post on her blog. Thanks!
