If you are visiting from Sew Mama Sew, welcome! 

This giveaway is from sew me a song and is for the sweet bundle of fabrics from Yuwa pictured below (4 fat quarters.)

I know you are probably going to be busy today entering giveaways but I highly recommend you visit sew me a song when you get a chance to see Becca's (the owner) amazing selection of fabrics - I am especially fond of her Japanese fabric bundles. Becca stocks several popular new releases but she also has a big selection of really cool fabrics you don't usually see - and she has a great sale section!



1. To enter, simply leave a comment on this post. Any comment will do but if you'd like a topic, how about recommending a good book? (one entry)


2. Plum and June blog followers - old and new - get a second entry. Leave a comment indicating how you are following. (one entry)

So you can enter up to 2 times! This giveaway is for everyone and will remain open until May 16, 2014 at 5pm PST and a winner will be picked at random and will be notified by email by May 18, 2014.

****And unless you are positive that you are NOT a no-reply commenter, please leave your email address in your comment.****


Be sure to stop by Sew Mama Sew for links to the rest of the giveaways!


The giveaway is now closed and the winner is KatheG who said: I have too many authors I love to read and my preferences go from comedy to light to mysteries/murder. I have thoroughly enjoyed Nora Roberts' Boonsboro Trilogy - great light Summer reading.

  31. Thanks for the awesome giveaway! I love Sew Me a Song. She always has such beautiful fabrics! I just finished reading Me Before you which was very good. I think the authors name is JoJo Moyers? I'm currently reading The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt which is amazing just like all of her books.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Recommending one book is impossible for me. But I am enjoying the outlander series right now and also rereading all of Robert Parker's Spenser books

    ReplyDelete
  33. Gorgeous fabrics! I think I may be spending all my free time browsing Becca's shop after seeing the link! If I am ever asked for a book recommendation I always suggest Neil Gaiman, anything by him should set your heart alight but in particular his latest novel 'The Ocean at the End of the Lane' is truly special.

  34. If I remember right you often ask for book recommendations - I guess it's fortunate that I do read a lot of them or I wold rn out of new recommendations. Something serious: The Assassin from Apricot City. And some fun reading, one of the books by Leon de Winter.

  43. thanks for the chance! I'm terrible at recommending books as it does depend what you like to read. I recently read Small Wars Permitting which is a collection of articles and ponderings written by a foreign correspondent. I also recently read Sashenka which is a novel set during the Russian civil war and stretching to present day. I couldn't put that down, it was so well written.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Well, right now I'm reading a book called Palliative Care And Ethics. It's a good book, but I'm not sure who else would want to read it - it's not exactly light read or really relevant for a lot of people! I'm re-reading The Final Act of Living right now too; it's a good book and I think most people would benefit from it, but it's also non-fiction and not on a normally uplifting subject.

  58. I recommend "Winds of War" by Herman Wouk. I'm reading it for the 4th time since 1982. Great story, history, just a great book. Also his sequel to the book is "War & Remembrance", also excellent. And yes, they made a TV movie of these books. Great!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Just gorgeous fabric. The book I ALWAYS recommend to anyone who asks for a good read is Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. Wonderful book, great story, engaging characters and wonderful writing.

Easy summer reads or listens.
