Smitty welcomes you to the Easter version of the 2013 MewFO Challenge!
Happy Easter! Smitty here! It's an Eggstravaganza, I tell you. And now that I have you eggsactly where I want you...let's have a party!
Did you start anything new in March? Link up below and show us your new stuff for a chance to win this month's cat needle nanny. Who wouldn't want to win my little buddy here? And, honestly, who doesn't love cats?
And this month, my mom is adding a bonus prize...just because we're so happy to see you! This month's winner will also get a one-year subscription to McCall's Quilting.
Here's what my mom has been working on this month. First, a doll quilt for her partner Lizzie in Sweden. My mom loves a good cat quilt.
Yeah, that's a finish. But you don't have to. Finishes are never required in the MewFO Challenge. Here's another one...unfinished. This is her Line Dancing wall hanging that is destined to cover up the circuit breaker panel in her laundry room. And since that's where the cat food is, Gracie and I will enjoy seeing it too! She says she expects to finish this one next month, but for now, it still needs top-stitching, quilting, embellishing, and binding.
As an update, she finished the January 2013 MewFO, Purrfect Harmony. Purrfect Harmony will go to its new owner...my human bro, Matthew...today when we get together to celebrate Matthew's 29th birthday. (29...Man. My mom is old!)
And the Plain and Simple quilt, her MewFO project from January 2012 is back from the quilter now. She still needs to sew the binding on it, but this one is nearly ready for napping on! I can hardly wait to hork up some grass on this baby.
So, now we're ready to see what's new at your end. To be eligible for the giveaway, here's what you need to do:
1. Please link-up with your newly started projects from March, finished or not. If you feel like it, show us the progress you've made on any other previously posted MewFO projects.
2. Please link back to this post from your blog. Also, please link to your blog post, not your blog. To do that, just click on the title of your post to isolate it from the rest of your blog. Then copy the URL and use that to link up. Links to blogs will be edited or deleted entirely. Also, this is not a place to advertise your Etsy shop or some other event. To be clear, you may include references to other events in your post, but there should be something related to your MewFO's as well. Cats, dogs, birds, fish, alligators, dinosaurs, rats, hamsters, and other pets are always welcome (especially the rats and hamsters). Inappropriate and/or unrelated links will be deleted. (My mom is mean about this. She won't let me scratch at the couch either.)
3. Don't have a blog? Upload an image to this FlickR group and link to that. If you have questions about how to do that or about how to link up, please send an email to my mom. If you're having trouble posting your image, email it as an attachment. My mom will post it for you.
4. Obviously, we need some way to contact you no matter how you link up. No email address and no other way to contact you equals no entry in the giveaway. Email my mom separately if you need to.
This giveaway ends one week from today. Winner of the needle nanny and subscription to McCalls Quilting will be announced on April 6, 2013! We will ship anywhere in the world, so international purrticipants are welcome!
