A sweet giveaway for you!!!

I know I am long overdue for a giveaway here!
I really appreciate you reading this blog, and all your lovely comments, and giveaways are one way we bloggers like to say thanks!  So today I have a special giveaway - 
2 Liberty of London fabrics that are printed only for Japan and 2 rolls of washi tape!!

In 2010 Liberty of London printed a special Hello Kitty fabric for Japan - isn't she adorable?!?


I selected a coordinating Liberty of London to go with it.

These aren't quite fat quarters, because they do everything in meters here, but the measurements are 15"x21".  So here's what I've been thinking about.  I have less time to blog right now(between pregnancy and then arrival of baby), so I want to be sure that my posts are tailored to what you want to read.  
So to enter to win these fabrics please 
  • leave a comment telling me which is your favorite thing to read about on Sew Homegrown (of course you can also give your own suggestion that is not on this list). 

                               *clothing sewing projects      *recipes      *things about Japan 
    
                        *knock-off DIY's          *home decor sewing projects        *kids crafts

  • for a second entry, become a follower of Sew Homegrown (if you are already a follower, let me know in a second comment).
Hopefully this will help me write about the things you want to read about :)  
This giveaway will be open from now until Friday February 17th at midnight.
Good luck!

  26. Hello, I am not participating because I am Spanish and I suppose you are not going to make shipments to Spain, but I thought you would like to know that someone from the other side of the ocean is also following you.

    I am following you since a short time ago. I am starting with quilting and in Spain there aren't any tradition about it. Finding nice fabrics is very difficult here and I have to buy it to USA. Looking for information is how I found you.

    Regards!

  37. Hi Jessica, so sweet is your give-a-way! I enjoy your letters because it is different every time. I enjoyed the rug making. I have attempted some of the sewing projects, like the flowery purse, anthro knock offs are fun.
    Variety is the spice of life! I think if you post whatever you are enjoying that day, will be the easiest for you.
    As a follower, I hope you stay healthy and enjoy your time in Japan. Take your daughter to experience all it has to offer you and her.
    Thanks for inspiring me to try new ideas!
    Best Regards,
    Lisa

  48. I enjoy reading your posts where you tie in a craft or story with what it's like in Japan. But really, I enjoy reading it all!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. While I enjoy everything you write about, I am particularly taken with what you write about Japan. I have always been fascinated with that country, so I really enjoy the perspective of a non-Japanese person in that country. By the way, when I was in high school in the early eighties, Hello Kitty became very popular in my hometown. I haved had a secret obsession with her ever since. The Hello Kitty candy decorations you showed in today's entry look very charming!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I like your Anthropology re-makes - it's all fun!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love hear your adventure in Japan, and your tutorial.Post what you want,i love read your blog.I`m a follower.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Is it ok to enter your giveaway, since I'm in the UK?
    Regardless, I love all your posts but if I had to pick a specific type of post I like reading, I'd be very torn between all the sewing and DIY, since I loooove crafty things, and your posts about Japan, since I'm really into Japanese culture :) It's fun to read your entries about the things you are experiencing there, such as the quilt festival and mochi pounding ceremony! It's interesting to hear about such things through the eyes of a non-Japanese :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. I'd have to say your experiences in Japan are my favorite. My daughter is on her way to Iwakuni to be with her USMC husband. Everything you've written and photographed for sharing has be been like a sneak peak at what's in store for my little girl!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love reading about your experiences in Japan. In fact, I find myself fascinated by your latest posts since you've moved in, and love reading about how things are so different there: food, customs (like the Valentines post), shopping, transportation, etc.

    I'm a foodie so I love recipes or new foods you are trying in Japan. And weirdly, even though I'm not a crafter, I love to see your DIY projects. It makes me so envious of your fantastic skills.
