While the Judges Deliberate – A GIVEAWAY!

We made it to the Top 10!!!!

Our entry into  the Bernina Sewing Room Makeover Giveaway placed 4th out of over 900 entries.

Watching the enthusiasm spread was the most exciting part of this contest. My husband campaigned at his work, my friends posted links to the contest on their profiles and re-tweeted my (really annoying) pleas for votes.  Karen, Leslie, and Stephanie wrote about it on their blogs, and (this is the craziest thing) yesterday, the Catholic News Agency wrote an article about me and my entry.

Now, it is up to a panel of judges as to who out of the Top 10 wins the $5,000 makeover. They have until June 2nd to decide. So, instead of sitting around over-analyzing my entry for ways I could have done things better, I thought I would host my very first giveaway.

I will select TWO winners. One will receive a Flat Stack Tissue Holder and the other a Needle Book (including little stork embroidery scissors). Both are pictured above.

    Oh how you brighten my days! Thank you for your example of a cheerful woman of God. You are lovely, you are hardworking, you live an intentional life, and your children are a glaringly bright example of how much you put into being a mother. Knowing these things about you, the stories of your sewing ideas and adventures sound impossibly other-worldly. How does it all fit into your life?

    Sure I’ll bite. :)

    I really hope you win the giveaway so you can fix up a really nice sewing area. I’ve enjoyed your blog, I might not comment much but I check it semi-regularly to see what cool thing you’ve sewn. :)

    Yay Jodi! We’re all rooting for you. :) You don’t have to enter me in the random contest though, because I already have a rockin’ needle case with scissor shield that I use all. the. time.! Love you, sis!
