{amylouwho} happy december!!! (and another giveaway!)

I LOVE December!  Everything about it!  Christmas, Christmas music, salted caramel hot chocolate (ahem, Starbucks I love you!),  Gingerbread houses, lights on houses, christmas trees, presents, birthdays (2 in our family!), etc.  It's just a fun, though exhausting month.

I wanted to introduce you to someone who might be able to help you with some holiday shopping for gifts, or for yourself.  My friend Leigh asked me if I wouldn't mind giving away some of her jewelry to my readers! And offer them an exclusive discount in her etsy shop. Of course I said yes!

Meet Leigh of LeedleDeedle Quilts and Designs.
Leigh
she's the kind of friend that will split a fat quarter set of Fandango with you and give you all the turquoise pieces.

I met Leigh this year in my virtual quilting bee, Bee Tweet.  When I went to Utah this summer we met in person for the first time and it was so fun!  You know how you meet someone and you feel like you've known them for a long time?  Totally that kind of friend.  We were also able to hang out again this fall at the Sewing Summit.  It was awesome.  We would totally hang out all the time if I lived there.

She's made some amazing quilts,

but the project she is working on that absolutely blows me away is her hand stitched hexagon project.  WOW! It's so awesome V. wanted to steal it.

Not only does she quilt, she creates jewelry!  Which is where you come in.  She is giving one of you a pair of earrings from her shop.  I'm pretty sure I know I'd pick these,

or maybe these,

or these!

They are all so pretty!

To enter, just go to her shop and come back here and tell me which earrings you would pick! Easy!  If you want to be really fun, tell me the best present you are giving to someone this year.

Giveaway will be open until through Sunday night, 4 December, midnight-ish. I will announce the winner early next week.

In case you can't wait to see if you win, Leigh is having a sale all month long, 20% off her whole shop!  For amylouwho readers she is offering a 25% discount through next Friday, December 9.  Just enter the code AMYLOUWHO25 during notes to seller during checkout.

Good luck!! See you tomorrow for sew & tell!!

I would choose the amazonite stacks earrings. But all of them are so beautiful!

Wow love the jewelery. All my favorite colors. I really love cluster dangle - soft colors. And about Christmas presents, I'm a little stuck on that this year. Yep I know it's late, but the things I wanted to give and make are not being found :-( Maybe a last minute marathon will be in place, very soon ;-)

Oh, lovely earrings! My favorite are the little amythest stacks - dainty but colorful! I think the best gift I will be giving this year -- hopefully I will finish it! -- is a narrow veggie quilt for my daughter's couch...and I will be appliquing, "eat your veggies" in folk art letters.

I think I'd have to choose the little red coral earrings. They are beautiful! Really sad I didn't get to meet her while I was at the Sewing Summit. Maybe next year ;)

Love that salted caramel hot chocolate too! I would pick the Yellow Jade Stack earrings. Pretty! My best gift this year is a fabric playhouse for my 2 year old. He's going to love it.

I don't wear earings but I my bestie has a thing for them, I saw several pairs I know she would love..the double pearl dangles, the turquoise earrings and the peacock clusters would all be a perfect gift for her :) Thanks for the chance! The best gift is probably the baseball pop up tent for our 5-year old...he would rather have an entire batting cage but I have no doubts that this will make him happy ;) Smiles~Beth

Oh how pretty! I may be shopping for my Mom in her shop next week. My favorite earrings are a toss up between the green pearl clusters and the squarish yellow jade earrings. Soo elegant!
