Giveaway day!

*Update* I forgot to do this yesterday. The winner of the scraps is comment #6, Amaranta. Congratulations!

It's time for Sew Mama Sew's May giveaway day. I'm giving away this pile of cowboy themed scraps. I got these years ago from my aunt, and I've made three quilts with them and I'm out of ideas. There's probably as many scraps left as I managed to use up on those three quilts.
Giveaway day
What's included in the pile?

Giveaway day
Most of the scraps are strips between 1.5"-2" wide and various lengths, although the blue horseshoes pieces are pretty big (the piece in this picture is folded in half).
How can you win? Leave a comment on this post telling me what book you are reading right now and what you think of it. I am willing to ship internationally, and you must include a way for me to contact you. Entries close 9pm on the 20th.

You should visit Sew Mama Sew for hundreds of other giveaways. Join the fun!

  1. I am reading "my heart lies south" by elisabeth borton de trevino. written in the fifties, its about her life as an american married to a native mexican. a very interesting read about a different culture and family, love, children and religion. I highly recommend.

  2. I am reading "The buzzards are circling but God isn't through with me yet" and it has a mix of humor and some really good advice to use when you feel like your life is in shambles and things are going downhill. How to rely on God more and yourself less. Really helping me with some life issues right now. Love the scraps-they are so colorful and fun. Thanks for the chance!!!!!!

  7. I'm rereading "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" by Barbara Kingsolver, about her family's attempts to eat only local food for a year. It's a great book!

  8. I've asked a book question on my blog. I am reading Sacred Hearts by Sarah Dunnant- she may go under another name in the USA. A historical feminist tale of 16th century Italy, set in a convent, it descibes how the women cope with a future many had not chosen. Compulsive!

  20. I am just finishing Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and honestly, I don't see what all the fuss is about. I have a book-finishing compulsion, otherwise I'd let it slide. It's just not that interesting. However, i love your scraps and would love to win! Thanks for the chance!

  21. I'm reading "Tipping Point". I'm into behavioral economics right now. It's really interesting. For example, did you that people would rather wear an unwashed shirt with poop on it than a clean, washed shirt that was breifly worn by a mass killer? That's from "Predictibly Irrational", the last book of this sort I read. "Superfreakonomics" is also a popular new release. ...Sorry, I work at a library, so if you ask me about books, I can't give just one!

  22. I'm reading a romance novel that is so bad I can't even remember the name of it! But it involves a woman who is a lion tamer and of course a rich and handsome man. And let's not forget the time travel and the gypsy fortune that may or may not come true! Told you it was bad, lol.

  24. Hello from a fellow Puget Sounder! I am currently reading "Design-It-Yourself-Clothes: Patternmaking Simplified" by Cal Patch. I'm fascinated by the idea of never having to buy a commerical pattern again--probably been watching too much Project Runway.

  25. I just finished "Onions in the Stew," an autobiography of a woman raising kids on an island near Seattle in the 40's. It's fascinating to see how much life and parenting have changed!

  34. I have a little boy in my life who lives on a farm and needs a cowboy quilt.
    I am currently between fiction books right now. Just read an older Kathy Reichs and am going to have to wait for her next one as I have now read them all. I am about to reread The Eight, a book that I read 20 years ago in the NICU with my youngest child. I just picked up a used copy and am going to reread it because I was too stressed at the time to remember very much about it.

I am reading a crime novel by Swedish writer Henning Mankell (translated but you wouldn't know it) " The man who smiled" in the Inspector Wallander series.

  57. oh i love this cowboy stuff!!! thanks for a great giveaway!
    well, as i am a bookseller and right now in the middle of buying stuff for the winter i read lots and lots of upcoming books/ manuskripts right now - but not the whole book but just 50-100 pages to get an impression and to be able to see if the title would sell.
    after this little shopping spree is over i will read the ones i liked the most from cover to cover. but i can always recommend an old book friend:
    "Time stops for no mouse" by M. Hoeye, a lovely childrens book about some very funny and adverturous mice (one is a daredevil and pilot actually :-)

  64. The book I am reading just now is called Bed Rest and is by Sarah Bilston. It's about a pregnant woman who is put on bed rest for the last months of pregnancy and how she copes with it.

  81. RIght now I'm reading 80 Leagues along the Amazon by Jules Verne, which does drag on. A LOT. Like he took a trip to the Amazon and then needed to find a fictional way of documenting everything that he saw in his travels. And then weave a story through THAT. I'd recommend his other novels though.

  127. Besides the anatomy & physiology book that haunts me my current bedside read is Around the Quilt Frame: stories and musings on the quilter's craft by Kari Cornell This is a fun book because I can relate to some of the stories in it. Great book!

  129. Oh what a fun quilt those would make for one of my boys! As for reading I am reading How Do You Tuck In a Superhero? by Rachel Balducci. It is full of cute and light-hearted adventures of raising all boys. A real easy read. Having all boys myself I find it entertaining.

  131. I am reading Kneadlessly Simple Fabulous, Fuss Free, No-Knead Breads by Nancy Baggett, If you can call a cook-book reading. (I do)
    I've had a hard time getting started making my own bread, which I really wanted to do so this book is helping me try a new method!

    I love the cowboys, SOO cute!

  133. I'm reading Read My Pins: Stories from a Diplomat's Jewel Box by Madeleine Albright which is very enjoyable. It is both lighthearted and provides interesting political insight along with family related stories. I guess you could say it has a little bit of everything. What I like most is that she points out that things don't have to be expensive to be valued.

  136. I love scraps and I have a granddaughter that is going to be a cow girl when she grows up. So these would be scraps she would like. I'd let her decide what we were going to do with them.

  152. Oooh I'd love to stitch up something cute for my little guy with these fabrics!
    I am currently reading "Eye of the Whale" by Douglas Abrams. It's non-fiction (as is almost everything I read) and is so cool to learn about the habits of the great white whale and our human impacts on its existence. And even how studies on them are turning up info our own impacts on our own human existence (like toxic chemicals that are found in them). It's kind of like watching one of those fascinating PBS or Nat Geo documentaries. Really... it is a good read! I heard the author on NPR and had to check it out.
    thanks for the chance to win!
