Double Trouble

*** GIVEAWAY CLOSED ***

Not so long ago, I returned home to find a book from the book depository on the front doorstep. There was nothing inside to say who the book was from, but I knew- it was from Deb. I had won a copy of this very same book from her a few weeks previously on instagram.

I promptly left a message for Deb on instagram thanking her.

About 10 minutes later the phone rang... it was Deb!

"We have a mystery" she announced and then proceeded to tell me that she had my copy of the book in the back of her car.

Although I am dying to know who sent the mystery copy, I am being a good girl and not contacting the Book Depository to find out. If the person wants to be a mystery donor, I will respect their wishes (even if curiosity kills me!), if it was a mistake and they want to own up, I'd love to hear from them. If they sent it and are wondering why I haven't been in touch to say thank you, its because I don't know who to thank (sorry!)

Anyway, you may be wondering why I am telling you this.

Deb and I thought that it would be nice for me to pay it forward, so I am giving away one copy of 'Hand Quilted with Love' by Sarah Fiekle to a lucky blog follower. 
To be in the draw, just leave a comment on this post by 5:00pm on Sunday 12th May. 
Sorry but this giveaway is only open to those with a NZ address.

** I will do my best to contact the winner of the giveaway, but if I have not heard back from them within a week, I will draw a new winner **

  4. OK so I'm putting this out there universe. I've recently discovered the reason I never win anything is because I never enter *go figure* - so since I would actually really like to win this book I shall enter.
    And I love random acts of kindness and I love paying it forward

  8. What a fun story! I know I don't have a NZ address but that's okay as I already have my own copy of the book signed by Sarah as I was lucky enough to meet her last Thursday night when she did her Trunk Show in NYC. Don't you just love her work, I do. I took lots of photos of the quilts and I've blogged them here. :)

  19. How very mysterious - maybe that explains where books go that you do order, that never arrive?? I'd be happy to take that extra copy off you hands... and add it to the other Sarah Fielke books on my shelf.
