Give Away!

Okay since I had a lot of visits and a few comments on the baby blanket/piping tutorial I thought it would be perfect for giving away a baby blanket! Plus Sew Mama Sew is having a international give away day so I thought I needed to join in!

I made it exactly how the tutorial goes. Its so soft made out of flannel I think it could be a little boy's or girls to be honest since it has some flowers on it. Its about 37"x37" so an adult could use it to as a lap blanket (hey I've done it). Next I guess you might want to know the rules??

Well to be honest I have been in such a music mood lately I'd like to hear your favorite lyric from a song, along with title and artist.
Example: "Tell your boy friend that if he's got beef that I'm a vegetarian and I'm not scared of him" Don't Trust Me by 3Oh3!

You must leave your favorite quote by Midnight on May 31, 2009 Pacific Standard Time.

The winner or winners depending on how this pans out will be picked by BT and myself by reviewing the quote for best one. So be creative in you quotes from music and yes if your the winner we will be downloading the song to make sure the lyric is actually in the song!

Oh and the best part...you can enter up to 3 times so if you cant choose your favorite you have some wiggle room!

The winner/winners items will be shipped by June 3 and YES I will ship internationally!

Good luck and may the best lyric win!

Oh and check back on June 1 for the winner!

  31. Favourite quote ? From a song ?
    In french (sorry...) :
    "La mer comme une préface avant le désert..."

  32. One of my favourite English song : Golden Slumbers - The Beatles :
    "Sleep pretty darling, do not cry
    And I will sing a lullaby"
    Love to sing it to my baby...

  33. And since I'm allowed to post 3 quotes, here's the third one, by Harry Belafonte in Man Piaba :
    "And the confusion made the brain go 'round"

  34. Whenever my husband gets frustrated with me, he starts singing the song "Someday, when things are good, I'm gonna leave you." He thinks it's hilarious. It's a running joke now. I respond with "D-I-V-O-R-C-E" Wow, once I wrote that down I feel really disfunctional. 13 happy years together!

    ah ohh werewolves of London'

  44. Also,
    Close your eyes and I'll kiss you,
    Tomorrow I'll miss you,

    And I'll send all my loving to you.

    Beatles, gotta love em

  45. Lastly "Build me, Buttercup baby, just to let me down. And mess me around and then worst of all, you never call baby when you say you will. And I love you still, I need you. More than anyone darling, you know that I have from the start. Oh oh oh, so build me up. buttercup, don't break my heart"

    Mainly cause it's SO much fun to sing at the top of my voice.

  52. if Certain girls don't look at you,
    it means that they like you a lot

    Kristin (P)

    Next is the band Metric the song is Calculation Theme and the Lyrics are
    'Tonight your ghost will ask my ghost, who put these bodies between us?'

  64. Oh, I put my second lyric in my first comment, sorry!!!

    Here is is again:
    Next is the band Metric the song is Calculation Theme and the Lyrics are
    'Tonight your ghost will ask my ghost, who put these bodies between us?'

  65. We won't hesitate
    To break down the guarding gate
    There's not much time left today

    Life is a Highway - Rascal Flatts

  66. My toddler is obsessed with The Beastie Boys "Intergalactic"

    Here is some of the lyrics:
    If you try to knock me you'll get mocked
    I'll stir fry you in my wok
    Your knees'll start shaking and your fingers pop
    Like a pinch on the neck of Mr. Spock

    For more awesomeness that is awesome, check out the entire lyrics. You will be astounded by the amount of things that rhyme with "exile"

  67. Just about anything by Weezer. Those Weezer lyrics will be stuck inside my head until I die. I don't get whole verses that make sense, just snippets of songs. oh oh oh just like buddy holly and no mary tyler moore, i don't care what they say about us anyway, i don't care about that. (the blue album) That may not be entirely accurate :)

  68. I'm quite partial to goofy metal songs, here is a favorite...

    The Duncan Hills awake you
    from a thousand deaths.
    A cup of blackened blood.
    (Die, Die)
    You're dying for a cup.

    Duncan Hills Coffee Jingle- Deathklok


  69. in all truth. you have to read all the lyrics to this song but I'll grant you just a snippet:

    "Give a little time for the child within you,
    don’t be afraid to be young and free.
    Undo the locks and throw away the keys
    and take off your shoes and socks, and run you.
    La, la, la..."

    the song goes on like that, it's just the sweetest, cutest song you'll ever hear.
    It's "Love You" by The Free Design

  70. Even if you cannot hear my voice
    I'll be right beside you dear


  71. When you feel like hope is gone
    look in inside you and be strong
    and you'll finally see the truth
    that a hero lies in you



  72. in the dead of the night, in my deepest of dreams we are always together in every scene

    CATIE CURTIS - Falling Silent in the Dark\

  73. "Despite everything I refuse to quit." It's a lyric that has inspired me for the last 4 years that I plan to get a tattoo of. The best part, of course, is that I didn't know at the time that my future husband was the person that wrote the lyric in his band Barricade.

    No matter what I'm struggling with, it reminds me to keep pushing myself, that I know I can finish whatever it is (a quilt, a project at work, a load of dishes, etc.)

  74. My current favorite is one that I can't get out of my head: "I kissed a girl and I liked it". Not because it inspired me to kiss a girl, but it reminds me of how far we have come for accepting our differences. Yes, we still have far to go, but it's progress.

  75. It's such a lovely blanket!
    At the moment I often have the song from Shrek in my mind, the one at the end that Donkey and Puss in boots sing: La Vida Loca. And my life's crazy, so very appropriate.

  76. Beautiful blanket!
    "We'll go down to the Mermaid Cafe and I will buy you a bottle of wine. We'll laugh and toast to nothing and smash our empty glasses down". Carey. Joni Mitchell.
    It's just joyful.

  77. "we could be stuck in traffic
    for over a week
    with a car full of quintuplets
    who are all cutting teeth
    around my neck
    could be a flaming christmas wreath
    and i'd be smiling underneath"
    Smiling Underneath - ani difranco
