Giveaway Day!


Sew Mama Sew is having its fabulous annual Giveaway Day on December 13th. I will participating this year with some lovely New Zealand fabrics. Up for grabs are 3 luscious fat quarters named after our New Zealand flora and fauna.

Paua, also known as abalone, a univalve shellfish, famous for its irridescent blues and greens in its shell. The inside is also edible and is often made into fritters. The inside of the shell is glorious in its colours and is often used for jewellery, ornaments and trinkets.

Tussock, found throughout NZ, in alpine regions, forests and sandy dunes.

The bush weta is about 4 inches long and is only found in NZ.  It is so old it has outlived the dinosaurs! There are 5 different types of weta in NZ and about 70 different species.  They are one of the heaviest insects when they are fully grown. They have ears on the front of their knees and can feel the vibrations of noises around them. They live in the forest and in dark damp places like the inside of rotting trees. My son has a fascination for them much to my disgust!!

Anyway, the giveaway is for this....3 fat quarters of Paua, Tussock and Bugs in the Undergrowth! Don't worry, I won't send you a real weta!!


Now that you know a little about my country, I would love to know a little about yours. To enter this giveaway:
1. Become a Follower

  6. ooooh I NEED to win some NZ fabric to remind me of home :) I'm a welli born kiwi but currently living in Perth.
    What I love about Perth which attracted me here is the weather. Blue sky & sunshine about 80% of the year. It almost gets old... Hush did I really write that?!

  7. Well, Deb, I thought I was already a follower of yours, but apparently not! I am now, though! And an interesting fact about where I live? Two inches of snow will shut down an entire city in Nashville, Tennessee!!

  8. Thanks for a wonderful giveaway! Uh- that bug looks gross lol. Anyway, I'm an immigrant to the USA. I'm originally from Canada and so... Canadians may be known for good manners, but we all swear like truckers! No word of a lie!! ALso, my cousin is currently married to a gal from NZ! He loves it there.

    Happy holidays to you and yours! xo

  10. I'm a new follower! The Paua is gorgeous inside and I think I'm fascinated with the look of the bush weta too!

    Where I live in Florida we have gators in the water year round. I have to be careful when I go kayaking! I try to only go when they are dormant and NOT in mating season when they can get a bit feisty.

  16. What great fabrics. I live in Canada on the West coast - rain forest country, where the trees are large and the foliage lush, and the bears roam freely where people haven't taken over!

  19. I love these giveaways just to find the interesting blogs. I don't even enter all of them. I am pleased to start following your blog. I would love to learn more about you and your side of the world!!

    I live in Missouri. I don't think I could ever live anywhere else. We have lots of famous people that have come from Missouri. Walt Disney got his start here. And I LOVE Branson Missouri...it is where I get my Hillbilly name.

  20. One if my life goals is to visit NZ. I love hiking, and so I would love to trek down there. I live in Tennessee in the US. We got an inch of snow last night, which is really unusual for us.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I am in Ohio and we have five inches of snow on the ground. We had the driest summer in history and our poor trees need as much moisture as possible.

  22. I really love New Zealand, I visited about 5 years ago, and plan on visiting again next year.

    I am living in Boston right now and we have the oldest continuously open public library in the US. And it's beautiful if ever you come to visit.

  24. My state is Idaho--it's pretty varied, mountains to desert, all pretty in its own way. Love hearing about the inspiration behind your NZ fabrics. (My neighbor lived in NZ--sounds fantastic!)

    ReplyDelete
  25. How beautiful! My uncle dives for abalone and my grandma had abalone shells around her house, so I have a bit of soft spot for it.

    I live in California. We're in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, which are so beautiful. The trees around here are mostly oaks and Ponderosa pines, which I don't particularly like, and cedars, which I do. Getting higher up into the mountains there are more varieties of trees that I like (and, oh, the balsamy smell!), and also no poison oak, which is just the cherry on top. ;)

  30. I can't believe how perfectly those fabrics match those items. Fabulous!!!

    I hail from So. California and one little known fact is that our state is a huge producer of all sorts of crops.

  31. What fabulous fabric. I'm Canadian (and I don't swear if anyone is around) but I've lived in Finland for a long time. When I first came here I was told not to be so polite all of the time! I don't think I've stopped though I may have slowed down. Christmas is celebrated on Christmas Eve here and Santa usually brings the gifts inside and hands them out to the children.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Ok, that weta is more than a little bit creepy - but the fabrics are wonderful!
    Up here in Canada, I would have to make a FQ trio that featured beavers, maple leaves, and snow.
    I live right in the middle of the Great Lakes, so it gets quite cold and snowy here this time of year.
    hugs & happy holidays from ON, Canada,

  36. I live in Arkansas. The northern part of the state has the beautiful Ozark Mountains dotted with thick forests and verdant valleys. There's an abundance of rivers and lakes throughout the state. Anglers gather to try their luck catching fat trout in our state's cool, running rivers. Bass and Crappie populate area lakes and are tasty when fried to a golden crisp. Boating and skiing on scenic lakes are exciting pastimes during the hot, humid months of summer. Our state also has a public park called the Crater of Diamonds. Visitors of all ages sift through bucket loads of unearthed soil in hopes of finding a diamond in the rough. The lucky many who find diamonds of all shapes and sizes get to keep their gems! Arkansas is also the home of former President Bill Clinton. I have lived in Arkansas all of my life and love living here very much.

  41. Hi, I'm a kiwi living in Vancouver, Canada, and that fabric makes me homesick!

  61. Hi Deb! I love finding things out about your beautiful country. It is the one place in the world that I have always wanted to visit. I am typing from Columbus, Ohio (US). Ohio is called "the Buckeye state" (a buckeye is a tree with a nut that resembles the eye of a deer). Our state motto is "with God all things are possible". We were added to the US as the 17h state in 1803. Our state bird is the cardinal (do you have those in NZ?) and our state insect is the ladybug. Oh, and it's snowing here - there's a beautiful blanket of snow covering everything. Cold, but so pretty!

  68. Great fabrics - the paua is amazing :) I'm an Australian living in the UK so I think you deserve two interesting things ... so, Tasmania has giant worms to rival your giant wetas (although I think wetas are very very cool!) and in the UK people are much more into Christmas cards than in Aus or NZ!

  75. Lovely fabrics. I live in the Yukon. Right now the days are very short. We have daylight from about 9:30 a.m. to about 4 p.m. As it is socked in or snowing most of the time the days are dull indeed. It is recommended that people who live here take 1000 mg of Vitamin D a day to make up for what we don't get from the sun. Soon - December 20th - the solstice comes and our daylight starts to return. By February it will be glorious here - lots of snow and cold but mucho sun and long days.

    I live in Canada, and have lived in Northern Canada. Which is why I own a parka (coat) that's good to something like -70 Celcius. Which is why Canada's not too interesting. Parts of it are far too cold in winter to even think about interesting things. And we have bears. You only have big bugs. Count yourself lucky!

  84. I like what you've told us about your country and am just amazed at how perfectly you chose fabrics to represent the information you gave us. I am from the state of Texas in the USA. Our state is amazing in that it covers such a large expanse of the USA and has such a variety of landscapes. I live in far west Texas in the desert. My son lives in north Texas and is in a cooler and more humid area. We also own property in what is known as the Hill Country of Texas in an area which is very green with beautiful oak and cedar tres. Other parts of Texas are along the Gulf of Mexico and have many beaches. Thanks for the opportunity to win your beautiful fabric giveaway.

    I'm actually from the same place as Gillian above me, and she stole my idea, so now I will come up with something else. ;)

    I was born and raised in California (no I'm not blonde) and people from outside of the state continually misjudge the size. It takes about 14 hours of driving to get from the northern end of Cali to the southern end. When my relatives come into the state, they will often say "you should come by!" and I have to point out that they're actually 8 hours away from me. :)

    It's a beautiful state (at least, along the coastline) and I love it here!

  108. This is such a neat giveaway! I'm from the Jersey Shore and I look nothing like Snookie! In fact...none of us look like that. Actually, the cast of that show is the crowd we get in the summer we call "bennies". They come from North Jersey and New York. Thanks for telling us some fun facts about NZ! :-)

  109. What beautiful fabric! I love how you related it to your country!

    Lets see I live in Utah USA but am from Colorado USA. So I live by the mountains, have hot summers and cold winters. Utah is mostly known for the large amount of LDS (mormon) people. I am LDS too, and no we don't have multiple wives :D

    I am having a giveaway too, so if you have time feel free to stop by! http://hendrixville.blogspot.com/
