Giveaway Time

Yay!!! I have over 100 followers now, 118 to be exact, so time for a giveaway to celebrate.  I will be giving away a fat quarter and 3 DMC cottons as pictured below.

Now what is the bird on the fabric you may ask when you have scrolled down to view.  It is a New Zealand Pukeko which is native to our country.  There are many around and over here we have a lot items made that have these birds on them.


The Pukeko, or New Zealand Swamp Hen is a member of the rail family, and is similar to other species found all over the world. It is one of the few New Zealand native birds to have flourished since the arrival of man, and can be found in almost any grassland area, especially in swampy locations. Groups will often be seen foraging for food in road-side areas


So to enter the giveaway all you have to do is be a follower of my blog. Just leave me a comment to say if you are.  Please also ensure there is a way I can email you as if you don't I will have to redraw.  Also only one comment per person please.

I will leave this open until June 8th, New Zealand time.

  2. I'm a follower of your blog. When my hubby was in NZ, and before Sam was born, he bought him a little baby body suit with a pukeko on it. It was very very cute. Irrelevant bit of information, but thought I'd share :-)

    Hi Michell, I'm a follower. Pukeko were quite common where I lived in South Otago. Should I say that they also make a scrummy stew! Oooops, maybe I should have kept that to myself ... the fabric is beautiful.
