Memory Tree Pillow 2 and a giveaway! (CLOSED)

Remember the first Memory Tree Pillow?

The reason it's special is because of the sources of the fabric and the thought behind the design, right? It's special to me because it honors the people I love and miss. The fun in design comes when there is true inspiration. For the first Memory Tree Pillow, my inspiration primarily came from my late Aunt Nan. Every time I look at the quilted wind, I'm reminded of her.

Memory Tree Pillow#2 is inspired by my grandmother - Aunt Nan's sister. (Aunt Nan is my great-aunt, I suppose I should clarify so y'all don't get confused by my lineage.) My grandmother has always had a love for birds. She has bird houses, birdbaths, bird feeders. You can always hear the sweet songs of different birds when you're sitting on her back porch. So, naturally, a bird emerged as the companion pillow to the first Memory Tree Pillow.



Creating this pillow used up some of my 275 leaves! Awesome, right?!! I cut a ton!

I still have a whole bunch of these puppies left. About 140, actually. They're pre-fused, pre-cut, AND pre-peeled for you, so all you have to do is put them down with the interfacing side down and iron into place. That, my friends - saves you lots of work!


So up for grabs is the remaining leaves, a 17" square of linen to get you started on your own pillow, and a Modern Workshop Moda Candy bar donated by http://www.fabricdonkey.com/ - if you guys haven't checked this site out yet, I highly recommend it. You can add her to your Google Reader and follow her posts just like any other blog. I always check there for deals before buying fabric.

(Disclaimer: we were not paid or compensated in any way to host this giveaway. The Candy Bar will be shipped separately, directly from the Donkey herself)

So, how to enter?

1) Leave a comment. Any comment. Tell me what you had for dinner. Or don't, because that's going to make me hungry and annoyed that I'm stuck at work.

2) Head over to http://www.fabricdonkey.com/ - leave me a comment telling me what you can win if you become a Donkey.

3) Add the Donkey to your Google Reader! (2 entries)

4) Become a fan of the Donkey on facebook! (2 entries)

5) Blog, tweet, or put up a facebook post about this giveaway. Leave a link in your comment.

Make sure to leave a separate comment for each entry! If you have two entries for becoming a fan of the Donkey or adding her to your reader - leave two separate comments!

Comments will be monitored and any excess comments or comments not following the rules will be deleted.


Giveaway is open until Friday, March 11th, at 9pm EST. Winner will be drawn using Random Number Generator. Good Luck!

Oh goodness. I'm always so confused by these things and how on earth to go about following all the steps. But I saw your pillow on BBC and <3 it! So I wanna try!
(on BBC my sn is oxyx)

BTW, DH made dinner tonight... it was some gargantuan coil of meat that probably weighed as much as a newborn baby, and rice with black beans, green beans and broccoli.
Quite the step up from his usual of nothing but meat.! haha

Today is the third day of sunshine in West Yorkshire, UK. The temperature in our greenhouse is 28 degrees C. It's so nice to be warm while sewing seeds and potting up those seeds that have started shooting. Spring is here - Yay. Now, some Central Park would just be the cherry on top.
