a little something for myself & a small giveaway

Early last week, I received a small parcel for myself. It made me a very happy woman.


The hello kitty stamps are really cute!



Fabrics from my most favourite Atsuko Matsuyama. Yes, I'm crazy over her prints. Very much crazy. So much so I have started a Flickr group for everyone to share the fabrics you have and the things you make from her prints. Please join us! All the fabrics above are bought from Lilymeru. I'm so glad to have found her shop in Etsy!

Ok now to a small giveaway as I promised...


There are four gifts for four lucky winners!




To join this giveaway, please leave a comment to share with us what is your most favourite flower! Yes, flower! Ok, I'm so in love with orchids. I see them everyday in our balcony! How about you? Which flower do you love the most? I will really be very happy to know!

Each person is entitled to only one chance for fairness. You can let me know which gift you would like to win!

I'll pick four winners on Sept 12. So, any entry before I pick the winners is considered valid.

Can't wait to share what I'm working on with the new fabrics... ^_^

Those fabrics by Atsuko Matsuyama are sooo pretty!! I can see why you're so crazy for them!! I work in a flower shop so I have a different favourite flower every week. This week it is the Waratah, a big red Australian native flower. If I am the lucky winner you could surprise me with either the embroidery threads or the fat quarters. :)

Erika said...

Hi, these are great prizes! I'd like them all except the threads as I would not use them. Oops, I talked about the prize before saying about my favorite flowers! I live in a place where it does not rain during 4 months, so the weather is very dry and uncomfortable! But, near the end of this dry period the flowers of a Brazilian tree called IpĂȘ amarelo blossom. It's such a magic view surrounded by a brown scenery... see this photo http://naterradoipe.files.wordpress.com/2011/07/dsc_0312_modificada.jpg

Found you via Flickr! I would love the fqs.
My fave flower now is the pink one growing in my front yard. Not sure of the name as it was a wildflower seed mix, but it looks a little like a very large geranium flower. The foliage is not geranium though.
I also love gazanias.

Kerry said...

Cute stamps and the Atsuko Matsuyama are so pretty- I would love to know more abut her as a designer. I love the fabrics you are giving away- fave flower- I do like alliums when they bulb especially purple- Strangely enough I don't like purple fabric but I do like purple flowers!

Sheetal said...

what a pretty parcel and I'm off to check out more of the fabric. I'd love to win the FQs, they are so perfect!! My favourite flower is the jasmine, it reminds me of my childhood..we had one that grew in our balcony and smelled so sweet!

Rose, love the feel of the petals and the fragrance brings back alot of good memories and with so many colors and variations there is always something to amaze me.

Nicholas said...

I have far too many favorites! Let's say, for the moment, the zinnia. It's always the transitional flower, marking the move from summer to fall... Love them.

Mibbi said...
