It's the day of the Giveaway!

Yay! As part of Sew Mama, Sew's giveaway day, I will join over 250 generous bloggers in giving something away. Huzzah!

Here's what you can win from me:
An embroidered wall hanging, handmade by me. This Alice in Wonderland-inspired hanging is just over 4.5" at the diameter, and is mounted on a hand-painted wooden frame. The pattern is my own.
A felt birdie brooch, also handmade. It's about 2" at the widest point, and the pin back is securely sewn on.

Also included in the package will be some sewing supplies - two remnants of vintage plaid wool, a yard of vintage lilac pompom trim, 5 skeins of brightly colored embroidery floss, and a pretty patterned pillowcase (the background).
So the winner, which I will select at random, will get everything you see pictured above!

To enter, just leave a comment on this post and tell me one of three things:
1. A book, album/band or movie you would recommend
2. Your favorite craft
3. Your favorite project of all the projects I have blogged about

Alright, you only have until Friday, May 21st to enter. Good luck!

Edited to add: I will ship internationally, and please make sure I can contact you somehow, or check back on Friday. Thanks!
