A Giveway Post

Thanksgiving is a few days away and I thought about all the things I am thankful for. Here is a short list because I do have so many things to be thankful:

  Family, friends, good health, a job I love, a hobby I love, being part of the Mood Sewing Network and all my friends here in the blogging community.  I really appreciate all your comments on my blog, your wonderful blog posts, the inspiration from your sewn garments and other projects.

So in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I have a couple things to offer for a giveaway.




 First a book

Second this knit - a ponte type with texture, there is approximately 2 yards.  I bought it with a jacket in mind but the texture isn't quite right.


So leave a comment on this post, if you would like to win either one of these items.  I will draw on Sunday, December 1st.

If you feel inclined follow and/or like Girls in the Garden with one of the icons below.

Happy Thanksgiving week to all those who celebrate.

  1. A textured Ponte ~ how interesting! In the shops 'Down Under' we seem to have the choice of black, black or black Ponte ... J

  2. I have to agree with Judith. Very little textured or printed ponte available "down under". A textured ponte would be a much appreciated prize.

  3. I haven't made a jacket in a very long time. That ponte would be just the thing for the one I've decided to make.

  52. Love your blog, it is very inspiring! Isn't wonderful when your girls take an interest in your hobby? I never thought that one of my girls would enjoy sewing but I love it when they ask me to go fabric shopping with them!

    I think that ponte would make a great skirt!
    Happy Thanksgiving!
