And Another Giveaway

Craftsy (yes, them again!) is giving away a mega mystery box of crafting goodies. The prize includes a class, plus supplies based on your crafting interests. Sounds like something I want to win for myself. Maybe I shouldn’t even be telling you about this so my chances will be better. … kitty’s already out of the box, horse out of the barn… just go enter so I can shut my trap!


I’m so glad you took this trip with us. It was out of this world, but I’m dying from the jetlag now, though. (Or was it the pixie dust I swallowed in-flight?) Whatever has me so knackered, this old girl is signing off to go have a little afternoon nap.

See you soon!

Canada Cups Giveaway 2016
How to Not Make a Needle Case


  1. Angela Smith says:

    This has been such a great blog tour!

  2. Thanks for all the hard work in putting this tour together! Thanks for all the vendors for providing prizes…can’t wait to see my bra kit and to get started on a new project.

  3. I thought the contest was all finished, and now there’s a mini giveaway. Bonus!

  4. No horseshoes in hiding, it’s in plain sight. Right next to the back door, which needs paint. Are you hosting any contests that give away paint? Tee hee hee

    • That’s an idea. Maybe I should team up with a reno company to do a sewing room makeover. Hmmm… but that won’t help your kitchen walls unless you keep your sewing machine in the oven.

  5. This has been the best blog tour. Bonus is that I won one of the giveaways, because I rarely win anything. The last time I won a prize was playing bingo in 2005–I won 2 decks of cards (and I still use them)!

  6. Veronica Lobb says:

    What fun this has been 🙂

  7. Yay! Thanks so much! This tour has really got me excited about making my own bra. It really never occurred to me before, but now I can’t wait, especially since I won a class!

  8. So glad I stumbled into this blog tour. Did not know that there were so many sources for supplies etc. I do ‘have’ 2 of Beverly’s Craftsy classes and I think this would be the right time to aquire more

  9. Good Grief!!! I’ve lost again. Congratulations to all of the winners.

  10. This was a blast! Hubby was a bit curious when I started raiding his tool box. I am happily collecting corset making supplies 🙂
