Better late than never? My SEWN giveaway

Gosh, four days without a decent interweb connection really puts a dent in the blogging, doesn't it?

We're home now in Melbourne - I have SO many thing to tell you about (dinner sets, and Coonabarabran, and vanilla slices) - but first I am posting my SEWN giveaway which I meant to do ages ago and completely forgot about. Oops.... I received kindly email reminder this morning and immediately felt terribly guilty. I'm sorry, SEWN! I know you are a great new sewing site and you deserve much better than this!

But also, you know, sometimes forgetting is good, because it means you can give away things that you wouldn't have otherwise had. (See how I'm justifying this? See? It's a long shot, I know.)

Take this lovely whale teatowel from Coffs Harbour for example. Now, if I'd blogged this giveaway before we went on holiday, as I intended to do, I wouldn't have been able to include it, would I? And it's lovely - pure linen, just like the Kangaroo tea towel which came from our
Mildura trip back in March.

So there we have it, two little pieces of Australia, all yours for the taking. International readers, no problems with postage, I'd love these to go to faraway shores!

You know the rules, just join up as a follower if you aren't one already, and if you ARE one, just leave me a comment below this post. I'd love to know what you might do with them ....

There's only a couple of days until this giveaway is drawn, on June the 8th, so you'll have to be quick!

Cute, cute!

Hmm, I reckon I'd make some little tote bags. Kitsch!

You know they are so kitsch, it would be tempting to keep them as (very treasured and looked after) tea towels decorating the kitchen!

I am a follower. Don't know what I'll do with them yet. Seems linen is making a comeback. I might try to make a purse with them....?

I'm quick, I'm a FOLLOWER and I love the tea towels! Thanks for participating in the SEWN launch give away.

Oh how fun!
I think that lovely whale would make a wonderful tote, and the kangaroos would be fantastic in quilt blocks and applique!

Hi! I hope that kangaroo decides to come visit me in Southern California! We only have them at the zoo! I have become a follower of your blog. Thanks for the giveaway!

I am already a follower, that's how I realized you had posted the giveaway. I would love a little taste of Australia.
Thanks for the great giveaway.
