Giveaway

Mr Banshee says thanks for all the lovely comments on his guest post!
I say you have no idea what you have unleashed. I have heard him wondering around muttering things like witty... supportive...fantasic and something about husband of the year.

I have found some great fabric at Textile Traders in the past year so I thought I would share it with you. Some are fat quarters, some are approx 20cm cuts and the one at the back is about 60cm.
The rules are
1. Leave a comment before Sunday about 6 pm Western Australian time.
That is it. Very simple. Yes I will post anywhere.

Lovely giveaway you have here too. Such wonderful pieces of fabric one of us would be very excited about I'm sure.
