Happy Saint Patrick's Day Giveaway

It's the green day today, otherwise known as Saint Patrick's Day or St Paddy's Day as its now known... March 17th is a day of celebration for the Irish and now many other people celebrate it along with the Irish.  My parents have been in Dublin on St Paddy's day and drank green Guinness, well the froth is green, straight out of the pumps..and I hear they also sell green beer


Check out the list of other give-aways here

Now comes the exciting part and why your probably visiting me :O) It's my first go at a give-away so please be patient with me...


There's a  cute fabric journal, a quilting magnet (mine is hanging on my scissor rack) and this 28mm cutter, it has a wave, skip and a straight blade. I've found it to be really handy when doing paper piecing lately.  Finally, there's a piece of hand dyed damask fabric that I won in Applique Addict Pun giveaway.  It was made by Frauke @ quilthexle Her work is stunning and the photo does not do the fabric justice, please go check out her blog.

Now the really simple rules...
You have until 24th March at midnight CET.    All you need to do is leave a comment letting me know your favourite green thing, it could be fabric, food, clothing, nature, anything as long as it's green :) 
You don't need to be a follower but I would be very happy if you choose to become one.  
If you are a follower you will get 2 chances to win so please add another comment telling me you follow.

Can you please make sure I can contact you, I have already had some no reply bloggers and you haven't left email addresses.
Good Luck/Bonne Chance and Happy St Patrick's Day

  7. Pippa, you may have been the first to comment on my blog this morning, but who knows what Mr. Random can or will do? Good on ya!

    Now I am commenting on your blog, which by the way is a lovely place to wander about in, but for today I will tell you my most favorite of green is the green you see when the plane flies over the top of Ireland on the way to Aldergrove Airport in Northern Ireland, it isn't one green but definitely more than the 40 shades of green mentioned in the song!
    I am also a follower by the way!
