Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day


Welcome to anyone who has dropped by from Sew Mama Sew for Giveaway Day. 
I am offering this Sunshine & Showers mini quilt that I made in last year's Zakka Sew A Long. I hope it will bring a little sunshine wherever it may hang.



I am happy to post internationally - as I sit here typing I am looking out at the early evening sunshine and I can see my rhubarb which is doing extremely well this year - yum. To enter my giveaway just leave me a comment telling me which fruit or veg you grow or would grow if you could.
In the event that I get a deluge of entries, I will not reply individually if that's ok. If you think you are a no-reply blogger then please include your email address in the body of your comment. I will choose the winner as soon as practical given time differences etc, (late Friday 10th May or early Sat 11th) and if I am unable to contact you then I will re-draw until I find a winner that I can contact.
Now leave a comment and then pop over to Sew Mama Sew to see all the other goodies that you can try for.
Good luck!

  1. Arghhh, first comment = no chance of winning. But I will suck it in.

    I love growing anything edible - it always tastes so much better. Runner beans have to be the tops.

  7. You know me Sheila, I try growing most things. But I wish I could successfully grow swedes as they don't have them here, but I've never managed it yet.
    The mini would remind me of the English weather!

  9. Sheila we have fruit trees and my favourites are the cherry plums and gages and the mulberries! Would love some raspberries though!

    ReplyDelete
  10. hmm things in the garden - strawberries, raspberries - lots of other berries, bell peppers, chili, cucumbers, pumpkin, squash, corn, rhubarb, spinach, cabbage, brussel sprouts .. ok and now I'm getting lost in the list and the risk of doubling the things gets bigger and bigger so I will leave it at that.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'm fortunate enough to have a very large garden. So I have apple , pear and cherry trees ( the plum tree died ) raspberries, redcurrants, blackcurrants and lots of veg depending on how energetic I'm feeling

    ReplyDelete
  12. oh i grow lots and lots of tomatoes. they're so easy that i can't mess them up!

    this mini would be for my 3 year old - we call her rainbow girl because she vacillates between sunshine and storms so quickly. :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. My little girl just planted our marrow seeds, and was really excited to see them poking through the pots a few days later!! Wonder if they will actually grow in the veg patch. Well done for joining in the giveaway - the bank holiday has left me exhausted and way behind on blog reading! xxx

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  23. I've always wanted to grow a fruit tree or bush... apricots and blueberries! But for now I've got three giant pots all growing delicious swiss chard.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love growing corn. It seems like an easy crop with not much care needed (unless you get worms :( ). Plus, there's nothing like eating fresh corn on the cob!! YUMMY!! Thanks for a chance to win your sweet quilt - it's perfect :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. since I have two black thumbs I would have to go with what I would love to grow and that would be cucumbers. I love them raw and pickled...yum yum.

    ReplyDelete
  26. We grow tons and tons of rosemary. I love your quilt. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I miss our house with the rhubarb patch :( We would love to have a garden again and grow all sorts of veggies to have fresh on hand. This quilt is so sweet! k_springthorpe(@)yahoo(dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  28. oh that is DARLING! i have two little girls who would love this hanging in their room.

    i live in the desert. i planted wild texas cherry tomatoes, and a few kinds of native chilies. so far i think only some palo verde trees have sprouted... fingers crossed!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh wow - this is so beautiful. Thanks for being so generous and willing to give it away! In the event that I win could you send me some rhubarb too - I love it and can't get it where I live :-)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I am with you with the rhubarb! I just love a good rhubarb crisp how the heck do you grow it I can never find any starts at the plant shop. Thanks for the chance to win your beautiful work.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Love growing tomatoes! And we do get a few strawberries every year. Luckily we live in the midst of neighbors' cherry, apple, pear orchards and they rewards us with their bounty every year! Thanks for opportunity and have a great day!

    ReplyDelete
  32. We grow kale (well, it basically grows itself). My kids love to help "harvest". We eat a lot of kale salad and kale chips. Thanks!n kristie_keely(at)yahoo(d0t)com

    ReplyDelete
  33. I would love to grow peaches if I could!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I don't know what I'd grow if I could.. I love pretty much all the fruits and vegetables and I'm not sure I could pick just one.... but something I've tried and failed to grow is basil, so maybe that'd be the one :D

  35. we have a play structure/house to grow vines on. My daughter lover to eat snap peas as she plays. I love the pumpkins. Also enjoy growiing tomatoes

    ReplyDelete
  36. At my cottage we grow apples and pears and a lot of plums and grapes and figs and walnuts and almonds and I am hopeful that the deer have not eaten the raspberry bushes but who knows. Oh and we have a lot of different herbs too. I would love to win the little quilt, thank you for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  37. We have a few fruit trees, but have gone a bit mad in our veggie patch this year. Radishes, celery, beetroot, carrots, lettuce, sweetcorn, pumpkins, potatoes but my all time favourite is broad beans. I love to eat them raw, mashed on toast with lemon, garlic and olive oil. But for this they have to be really fresh and sweet, a few hours after picking they start to go a bit starchy and it's not the same.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I leave all the growing of things to my husband, my job is just to eat them! I have high hopes for the raspberry canes he planted this year :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. I would grow bananas and red peppers, I could eat both every single day and be the happiest kid ever :)

    This little mini is so adorable and that duck print on the back is my absolute favorite from RLD! Keeping my fingers and toes crossed that I win :) Thanks for the chance and I'm glad to have stumbled across your cute blog!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'm growing mulberries and mint - and letting my rosemary and oregano have their wild way in my herb bed ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  43. That is adorable! We plant a whole garden of peas so my little girls can help themselves to a snack whenever they are outside. They love it!

    ReplyDelete
  44. We grow raspberries! I cant wait for them to grow! We have tried unsuccessfully to grow blueberries which makes me sad. We are going to try again this year with a potted varietal! Fingers crossed!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Love growing and having fresh cucumbers and tomatoes!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I am dying to tear out the thorny bushes the previous owner planted and put in some blueberries. I'd also eventually love an asparagus patch. Thanks for hosting!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hello from Minnesota! Love your mini. :) We grow our own hops for home-brewing beer and the vines are really decorative too.

    ReplyDelete
  48. If I leave in a suburb area I would grow up some tomatoes! I love their smell, color and the taste of course.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I think the little blue duck on the background makes this go from pretty cool to amazingly awesome. I love the way you lined up the back so well!

    I'm trying to grow some herbs right now, but the squirrels or birds keep eating the lovely parsley and mint that I've got growing! Grr!

    ReplyDelete
  53. My rhubarb is doing well this year too!! I'm also growing salad, dwarf green beans, parnsips and chives, rosemary and garlic chives, parsley... I love it!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I kill any plants I lay my hands on, sadly (even cacti and succulents!) but my flatmate has very green fingers, so she grows enough for both of us on the balcony and the windowsills! We have all sorts of herbs, some vegetables and also oyster mushrooms that you can grow in coffee grounds - those are my favourites!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I would love a never ending supply of strawberries but the rabbits make that impossible! I would also love to grow watermelons!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'd grow fresh peaches if I could. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  57. We have a decent vegetable garden, and several small flower gardens, but I'd really like some blackberry bushes or even an apple tree!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I would love to grow squash. Maybe next year...

    ReplyDelete
  59. We have no where to grow veggies but if I could I would have asparagus.

    ReplyDelete
  60. We have had good success with zucchini. Thanks for the giveaway! Amy @ gasudimack(at)sbcglobal(dot)net

    ReplyDelete
  61. I would grow summer squash and sugar snap peas if I could. Very cute sunshine! I love it! :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. What a lovely prize....we grow tomatoes but only because we eat so many!!!

    ReplyDelete
  63. A home grown garden with all sorts of vegetables. Nothing tastes better than home grown. Sames goes for quilts. Means so much more when it is homemade. Anybody can buy but it takes time and effort and hard work to make a quilt for yourself or someone else. That just means it is worth so much more. I will cherish this mini qult forever. It is so cute and I just love it already and my house will be filled with sunshine and showers because of you.

  64. Oh my, this is adorable!! I have the most opposite of a green thumb as you can possibly get, so I don't think I could grow anything. If I were to try though, I would try strawberries and tomatoes. Tomatoes are so much better fresh off the vine and strawberries are impossible to keep in my house, so I would save tons of money if I just grew them!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I think I'd like to be able to grow Jazz apples...or money ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  66. I have a few things planted but my herbs and lemon trees are my faves... thanks for a great giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  67. I am growing my own herbs but I'd love to plant some strawberries and tomatoes, they just don't taste like they used to ...

  68. Currently my kale and lettuce are doing wonderfully but something I'd love to grow but wouldn't make it in our climate is peaches! kcarlson1152[at]hotmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  69. I grow too many fruits and veggies to mention all of them, but my favorites are apples, rhubarb, and currants. :)

    ReplyDelete
  70. we've only planted toms and lettuces so far, the weather hasn't been good enough yet

    ReplyDelete
  71. Probably tomatoes, but being that I used to own an apple orchard, I would have to go with apples or pumpkins for fall:)

    ReplyDelete
  72. Last year we grew so many things: tomatoes, potatoes, zucchini (courgette), beets (love!), peppers, beans, peas, raspberries, herbs, blackberries, and we tried corn which failed miserably. This year we are so behind - there is nothing planted!
    I'm jealous of your rhubarb! One thing we haven't tried yet.
    Thank you for the giveaway I love this hanging so much and have a perfect spot for it if i should be so lucky to win it.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Right now we have a lot of greens, turnip and mustard and lettuce.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Our strawberries are doing very well this spring!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I do a full vegetable garden. My favorite fruit that I grow are Blenheim apricots -- nothing like eating right off the tree!

    And I have to say this little mini quilt is so sweet -- the ducks on the back my daughter would go nuts over!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I live in an apartment but I have a window box planter with basil, parsley, rosemary & chives. Thanks for the great giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  82. We usually have a small garden. We get to eat what the deer leave us. ;) I'd love to grow muscadine grapes.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I would grow carrots if our deer and other animals didn't eat them. I can usually do a few tomatoes on the deck.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Closest thing to growing something I do is bamboo. My house doesn't get enough sun for traditional plants.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  93. I would love a fruit orchard. I see your from Ayr. Our town of Newnan Ga hosted the Fiddle Orchestra from Ayr about 2 years ago. My family had 2 very sweet young ladies stay with us. What wonderful girls they were. The whole group was great!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I am growing cherry tomatoes. If I could I would grow artichokes!

    ReplyDelete
  95. I really want to grow tomatoes someday! I don't eat enough to justify buying the little containers of grape tomatoes at the grocery store. But I'd love to go pick a few whenever I wanted, and my MIL would gladly accept my extras!

    ReplyDelete
  96. I love to grow that flower that starts with an h. Not hyacinth, or heliotrope. Um. Hibiscus, that's it!! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  97. I grow lots of stuff in my garden - every year I always have tomatoes, cucumbers, sugar snap peas, zuchinni, yellow squash and then depending on the year I add in carrots, broccoli, all kinds of peppers and more. Oh and I have 2 grapevines...
