Hurray for Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Days!

The last time I participated, I met lots of great new people, gained some new fans to my blog, and had a blast! I ended up mailing about 10 packages of zippers for that giveaway!

This year, I am giving away a box of 100 zippers in all colors of the rainbow! (Here's my listing on etsy if you don't want to wait.)  You'll get 100 plastic teeth zippers in all colors of the rainbow -- the zippers range from about 10 inches up to 36 inches -- you'll get mostly very long 18 inches or longer zippers! [This is open to anyone worldwide!]  This will be enough zippers to keep you busy and outta trouble for a long, long time!

This giveaway will close on May 25 at 5 PM pacific standard time.

To enter, just leave me a comment telling me about the coolest project you have ever completed -- whether it's sewing, drawing, painting, or anything else!

You don't have to be a follower to win, but I will be super happy if you decide to become one! In fact, if you are a follower or become one, you can get an extra entry by leaving an extra comment telling me that you are!

Want another extra entry? Head on over to the Key Lime Supplies facebook page, like it, and leave a comment telling me the type of supplies you'd like to see in the store. Then come back here and leave another comment telling me that you visited.

Or visit my etsy shop, Key Lime Supplies, then come back here and leave another comment to tell me your favorite item in the shop!

(Yes, you can do all three -- which means you can get up to four entries for these zippers!)

Plus: if I get at least 200 entries, I choose a second winner for a package of 50 zippers!
For every 200 after that, I'll chose another winner for a small sampler package of zippers!

  134. The coolest project I ever completed is still a WIP. Almost four years ago, we moved from the burbs to a farm. In a little under two years, we took it from a house and some land to a fully-functioning homestead complete with a garden, orchard, and a barnyard full of animals. Sometimes I still can't believe that we did it, but it has been the best, most life-changing project we have ever undertaken. I am also pretty please about the wonky log-cabin picnic quilt I made last summer out of some Denyse Schmidt fabrics ;)

  158. The one thing I am most proud of was made for a friend of my husband and myself. We met her online and then drove two states away to meet her and her husband. We did this a number of times and then when they were going to be married I made them an awesome wall hanging. He was a firefighter and thinking of how that would be a part of their life throughout their marriage given the fact firefighters are pretty much on call every waking hour of the day if a big call comes in. I decided to make a wall hanging.

    I had just gotten my first embroidery machine a few months before and hadn't even done much at all on that machine as it still scared me. I jumped in with both feet and decided to not only go with such a huge project but that I would also use satin fabric matching their wedding colors. I had NO idea satin was not something you really wanted to embroider on for this size of a project. I had no problems at all which shocked everyone that saw it. Anyway, let's try to shorten this ~ I embroidered a firefighter knelt down with an axe on the ground with the head of the axe on the ground, handle up with the firefighter head down on his hands which were over the hand of the axe. On either side of him I embroidered a single long stemmed rose. Then below him I stitched out the entire firefighters prayer. Once completed I put it onto a board, matted it and then framed it. It was about 24 inches long if I recall but it turned out just beautiful. The groom when he opened it and really took a good look actually started to cry. And then the bride and I followed soon after. They still have that hanging in their house which makes me smile.

  160. I just checked out your Etsy shop and the one thing I liked the most were your zippers. You have so many and in so many different colors. I NEED zippers very badly but haven't bought them from the store because they are so expensive to buy just one or two.
