Reindeer Kit/Quilt Book Giveaways to enter!

by Helen on November 3, 2012

I haven’t had a giveaway for a long time – and now I am having two at once!!  There is a chance to win a paperback copy of my “Around the Year Quilt Book” featuring Rosie and Bear and also a chance to win a kit to make your very own Reindeer Head – using exactly the same fabrics as I used to make mine.  Here’s what you have to do ……

 To enter the giveaway for a paperback copy of  my book …

amazonbookcover2for website

Just pop over to my Facebook Page where you’ll see how to enter.   If you can’t wait to get your hands on a copy, then it’s also available from Amazon and as a download from this site

For a chance to win the Fabric Reindeer Kit - including everything you need to make your reindeer apart from toy stuffing……..

geeseandreindeer 009

 Just leave a comment below – and for fun – please tell me what you think his name should be.  For both draws, the winner will be chosen by random selection and yes, I will post worldwide.  Good luck everyone!!

PS I still have one Reindeer kit for sale on Etsy.  And then there won’t be any more as I only had enough vintage fabric to put 3 kits together - and now it’s all gone. Sorry, now sold.

PPS  A couple of people have asked about the pattern – it’s available to purchase as an individual pattern here, or as part of this month’s ezine here Thanks so much for all your lovely comments – I am loving reading all your suggestions!

He’s adorable, I think I’d like to name him Heath.

Mrs M November 4, 2012 at 12:35 am

I would have to call him Blue for two reasons:
1. His main colour is blue
2. He knows there aren’t many like him, so he feels a bit lonely and blue :-(

Donna November 4, 2012 at 3:47 am

I think your reindeer is so cool and think Derek would be a good wholesome deer name.

Many thanks for the opportunity

I would so love to win the Reindeer pattern and would name him “Frazier” as that is a family name and he does have the tartan look about him. Also, I would like to put my name in the drawing for the stitching book, I don’t do Facebook, so wouldn’t have a chance that way. I do a lot of stitching and this would be great for my five youngest grandchildren. Thank you for the opportunity to win one of your generous items. Joyce

Judith Ann from Cape Cod November 4, 2012 at 1:27 pm

I live on Cape Cod, but grew up in the forested North Shore of Boston, where we lived at the end of a dead-end street surrounded by 14 acres of woods. My family always used princess pine and other greenery to make our own Christmas wreaths, and we encountered deer and other forest animals daily.

Now I live in a seaside community, but at Christmas time I celebrate those childhood memories by decorating my tree as a snowy winter wonderland forest, with pine cones, acorns, and ornaments of squirrels, owls, and of course deer. Your delightful (but unharmed) deer would fit right in!

I love your blog and look forward to Bustle and Sew every month.

A big “wave” from New England,
Judith Ann

Hello Helen,
Probably a little late with this, but maybe one day you will make an entire deer?!? I was so excited when I saw this, but must admit a little greedy, ;) and think it would be too cute to have it standing next to the sofa. Any chance there might be one in the offing? Thanks and love all your things, Anita!

I think he should be called Cairngorm as in the Centre – The Cairngorm Reindeer Centre. The Cairngorm Reindeers belong to Britain’s only herd of reindeer found free ranging in the Cairngorm Mountains in Scotland.

My family visit virtually every year, it is educational and well worth the visit. My Granddaughter Macey just adores Reindeers and would love him to bits.

oddly enough – I happened upon your site when actually looking for a pattern for a deer head to mount in my sewing room! My only change would be to add an eye patch – for no reason at all, other than it would look odd (and hilarious).

your reindeer should be named: “Eliot” … he seems like an Eliot.

Enjoy your day.

I would name him Blixem. The 1823 poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas” (known today as The Night Before Christmas) calls Donner and Blitzen “Dunder and Blixem”. Blixem is much more flattering than Dunder, so we chose Blixem.
