exciting happenings and a giveaway


What with the school holidays I feel as though there is not a spare minute to come up for air. 

There are a number of exciting things happening at Stitchbird Fabrics, but I can't tell you just yet, otherwise I might jinx it!  But keep your fingers crossed for me.

One of the things I can show you is a gorgeous lampshade I have had made using the echino birdsong fabric in pink.

Now for the giveaway part which I know you were all wanting to read about - which I have left until last - so you have to read the other bits!

It has happened again, I have two copies of the latest NZ Quilter.  No, I am not going doolally and forgetting that I have bought one (although this could happen :)).  The lovely Mr S gave me a subscription for Christmas and the lovely people at NZ Quilter also send me a copy when I advertise in their magazine.

So would you like a copy of this magazine...


I love these quilts which are featured inside...


Also because I won a giveaway this week and I believe in paying it forward and sharing the loooovvvve, I will also pop some goodies from my stash in.  And I have got good stash!  

To enter just leave a comment, if you would like two entries, become a follower and even better tell your friends.

More about the giveaway that I won next time, with some photos.

Happy stitching.

Yes please! I love the look of the 'Memory Lane' quilt and your lampshade is stunning. I purchased some of the Echino fabric from you and still can't decide what to do with it. I just totally love it so want to make sure I make something that will be seen all the time :)

I'd love to win a copy. I used to be in a quilting group with Fyvie Murray. Her workmanship is breathtaking. If I don't win I will just have to dash out an buy a copy to read up all about what she's up to now.

International (UK) follower - with a sister in Wellington! I so love your blog, will be checking in over our 'summer holidays' for more inspiration! I bet I'll stand no chance in the giveaway if I mention it's too hot for a quilt here just now :) x

How fabulous that you've started a dream business selling fabrics! I have seen the fabric in the Nancy's in Wellington and had been imagining wonderful uses for it - the lampshade looks great.
