Sew Mama Sew Givewaway Day ::

Christmas is coming which means that it’s time for Sew Mama Sew to host another one of their massive Giveaway Days (or weeks, rather).

If you’ve not visited the Little Black Duck blog before, then welcome! If you are a regular reader, then welcome back! Whilst you are here free to have a look around and see what’s what. You could even sign up for the newsletter (don’t panic it only goes out once a month-ish) or visit my Facebook page or Etsy store. If you’re feeling adventurous you could follow me on twitter (also seems to only happen once a month!).

Giveaway Day
