May Giveaway Day: Fun FQs! (Closed)


***** This giveaway is now closed.  Stay tuned to this blog for a post about the winner****

 
Hi Everyone,

Well I wasn't going to do it.  I wasn't going to participate this year.

I've been cranky.

Really, really cranky.

But I need some cheering up.  And you guys all make me smile.

Soooo...

I put together a prize package for the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day (er.... more like week).

Anyhoo....

How would you like to win a fun FQ bundle?

In the Tawny Bee shop I have several FQs available right now from vintage "80s child" themed vintage bedsheets.

I've got 2 kinds of Cabbage Patch Kids



I've got Peanuts:


And Care Bears:


And apples:


All of these are not cut into Fat Quarters yet, so they may end up being a little bigger in your prize pack.

I also have a tinier pieces of Simpsons:


Pacman

And Holly Hobbie:


in my scrap bag that I'll definitely include in the prize pack.

Now to the rules:
- open worldwide
- giveaway open until the 10th of May at 9:00 pm central time
- I will choose a winner then and announce here on the blog and also email the winner (so be sure to leave a valid email!)
- if the winner does not respond within 48 hours, I'll choose another
- I'll ship the prize on Monday May 13th, 2013.

To win all you gotta do is:
- leave a cheerful comment here to cheer me up (tell me joke or a funny story or whatever) that is worth 1 entry
- fan the Tawny Bee Facebook page (and leave a separate comment here to tell me you did) worth another entry
- and for kicks if you're on Etsy you can also add Tawny Bee to your favourites (and comment here to tell me that you did) for one more entry

And if you want to enter more and more and more and more giveaways (totally!) go to the Sew Mama Sew Blog and check out all the links.

Good luck!

Sorry but i am useless at jokes. You run a home and work, you raise two beautiful children you are allowed to be cranky, you are even allowed the odd Hissy Fit. You produce a ton if ideas for me and others to use, fill your boots and crank away.

Jo Hinchcliffe said...

You can't be cranky! You have Holly hobby fabric! i had a big rag doll when i was little & i cried when the glue came unstuck from her hair & dad tried to stick it back on with super glue. 'It will burn her dad. Stop it!@, So mum tacked it on instead :)All your fabric is cool & i would love to win any one of them. Keep smiling. X

I spotted the Peanuts gang in the sea of giveaways and knew it was you. Yay for 80s kids!

At the MOOOOOOvies!

My Terry planned on moving my sewing camper to the front of the house.He had said that he has to wait til the ground dried up. Well, one morning I am finally all geared up to go out and do some machine embroidery and he announces that TODAY is the day. I protest, the ground is still too wet and he says its ok. SOO he hitches up the camper after i have frantically tried tomake sure my machines and things are not going to fall, and proceeds to try and move the camper. What happens? Nothing! LOL. He gets about a foot and starts digging into the soft ground with his tires.GRRR.So he says he can't do it, manages to get the truck unstuck and goes back to the driveway. He leaves my camper and great big ruts just the way it sits. So now my camper wasn't even sitting straight, it jiggled when I walked in it, and I have to walk around these ruts so I don't break my neck LOL!Men! I did finally nag him enough to at least put more jacks under it so it doesn't make me sea sick to go in there lol!

Kids can provide some of the best remedies for crankiness (though, they can be the cause, too). One time, my daughter and I were playing pictionary on a magna doodle, and her art skills were not great.... She gave me a hint... "It's my favorite thing... it starts with P and rhymes with corn". And from me... silence... "Popcorn silly!!!"

When trying to get my 4yo to clean up the other day after she insisted she had cleaned up all of her messes, she was asked, "Well, what does your bedroom look like?" to which she answered, "It has yellow carpet." Nice try, right? Thanks for a lovely giveaway!!

Skwishee said...

My jokes are pretty pathetic, because I hang out with a four year old all day, but here goes: What kind of fruit do scarecrows like to eat? STRAWberries! :)

I love the Holly Hobbie fabric - I had the best Holly Hobbie blanket when I was a kid, with a ruffle around the edge and a satiny back. I loved that thing until it fell to pieces.

Hope you're feeling better!

Natalie J said...

My jokes are terrible, but I learned this one when I was in elementary school home ec, and it's stuck with me!

Seriously, your fabric is so much cooler than everyone else's! Funny story... my kid can barely talk at all, but she knows "mama" and "dada" ... and also knows enough to be a little stinker, so half the time when you ask her to say "mama" she'll say "dada" and then start giggling... don't know if that's funny to anyone but us, though!

And of course liked you on FB ages ago.

I haven't seen any of these fabrics before! I don't know how I missed them. I've been present at the 'birth' of a Cabbage Patch Kid. I live in Georgia about an hour and a half from where they were created. Xavier the creator and now very rich guy had a house with a 2 story slide in it. Now that would make you smile.

I was reading through the comments and they're just so much FUN.

So I'll share a "dirty" joke (that used to crack me up as a kid).

This is a great giveaway.

Here is a little story for you. My sewing supervisor is my 5 1/2 year old Pomeranian. He loves his treats and basically taught himself to pick up scraps, paper, pins, anything that falls onto the floor and turn them in for treats. It is so cute and he gets so proud of himself.

Cool giveaway! OMG, I love the pacman. This morning my 4yr old asked her dad what kind of cheese he was using on is sandwich and he said "mouse cheese". She looked at me and asked 'Mom, what kind of cheese is that?" and I said "mouse cheese". Can you guess what kind of cheese it was?

How about this. My husband is tall but has a belly overhang. (He denies it of course!) But while he was standing talking to my daughter, I was sitting on the steps to the side of them with my grand daughter (age 4) and she nudges me and whispers to me..."Nanny, what's that hanging over Papa's belt?" To get my husband is said "I don't know. Why don't you ask Papa?"..."Papa, what's that hanging over your belt?"....okay, well, I won't say what he said but hope you are laughing! I've had those kinds of weeks too!

I am not very good at jokes but something that makes me smile every day. When I was in high school, a friend who was a wonderful artist painted me a holly hobby picture. I still have it and it makes me smile every day. ALl of those sheets remind me of when my kids were little. Great memories.

Kellie Staton said...

Okay this isn't a joke but it sure makes me smile. My daughter had a holly hobby room when she was little. That same daughter is graduating college this weekend. My sweet "baby" puts a great big smile on my face!

I was super grumpy yesterday. I even went to have ice cream (even though I'm dieting) and it had gone bad. So I cried on the floor in the kitchen. But if you can you should find a sweet treat, that almost always cheers me up (till its' gone anyways).

Sasha said...

Two guys are hiking in the forest when they suddenly come across a big Grizzly bear! The one guy takes off his hiking boots and puts on some running shoes!
His friend says to him "You're crazy! There's no use, do you know how fast Grizzlies are, you'll never be able to out run it!" and the guy says, "I only have to out run you!"

I hope that brought a smile to your face but i suspect it was more of a groan!

Executive Decisions
A young executive was leaving the office late one evening when he found the CEO standing in front of a shredder with a piece of paper in his hand.

"Listen," said the CEO, "this is a very sensitive and important document here, and my secretary has gone for the night. Can you make this thing work for me?"
"Certainly," said the young executive. He turned the machine on, inserted the paper, and pressed the start button.

"Excellent, excellent!" said the CEO, as his paper disappeared inside the machine. "I just need one copy..."

Let's see, would you laugh if I told you that my 9-month-old just learned to pull up to a stand, and two nights ago he got in the middle of my husband's stream while he was using the restroom?? Totally inappropriate but pretty funny, right? That comes to mind mostly because it is the latest thing I've laughed at lately.

I added Tawny Bee to my Etsy favs. Thanks again!

This. Would be amazing! My nine year old collects the peanuts books! I didn't know they had made sheets. Thanks for the chance!

Ohemgee, I totally slept on those Peanut sheets my entire childhood!!! Thanks for bringing me back! :-)

Did you hear about the fire at the circus?
It was in tents. :-)

I'm not good at jokes at all, but I have a cute story: My son the other day told me he wished they had a drug that would make him a baby forever, so he could always be my little baby. awww... so adorable right. (he's 5)

Waw a lot of good childhood memories come to my mind with these lovely fabrics!!!

To cheer you up: my favorite little poem (I don't know the author):

Smiling
Smiling is infectious, you catch it like the flu.
When someone smiled at me today, I started smiling too.
I passed around the corner, and someone saw my grin.
When he smiled I realised, I'd passed it on to him.
I thought about that smile, and realised it's worth.
A single smile, just like mine, could travel round the earth.
So, if you feel a smile begin, don't leave it undetected.
Let's start an epidemic quick, and get the world infected.

Thanks for the chance of winning these beautiful fabrics :-)

Knock Knock
Who's there?
Vampire
Vampire Who?
Vampire State Building

This was the first real joke my now 6 year old memorized. She had no idea what vampires or the Empire state building were. :)

I don't know many jokes.
Why did the chicken cross the road?
To get to the other side.

I'm rubbish at jokes. But when my OHs nephew was 7, he proudly told me this joke:
Q: Where's the hottest place in the jungle?
A: Under the grill-a

It always brings a smile to my face when I think of it, so hopefully it's made you smile too! :-)

When sewing edges or cutting off points, do not worry about your quilt. No one will notice when galloping by on a running horse.

My son's favorite joke when he was four or five years old. How did the gum cross the road? It was stuck to the chicken's foot! He told it over and over. So cute when little ones start they joke telling. :)
