a giveaway

Because cleaning my dining room led to this:

I'm giving away this, a flat rate box of home decor weight fabric


and a flat rate envelope full of scraps




just leave a comment to be entered. You can leave your preference for which you'd like to receive, or just say "both." I'll pick two winners on Friday.


Hope you're all having fun preparing for Christmas. Things are a little chaotic here. Isaiah is sick, which means I haven't been able to visit John in a few days. And John is at his lowest point right now, at the most risk for infection. Perfect timing, right? God must really have a sense of humor. Anyway, I'm hoping to visit John today and I think Isaiah is getting better. Hopefully there will be some cookie making later. That just might be what the doctor ordered.

Merry Christmas and tell John a bunch of strangers have him in their thoughts.

On a side note - I would love some stuff...enter me in!

Vanessa said...

Thinking of John (((gentle hugs to you all)). Get well soon Isaiah. And I would love either give away - new to patchwork / quilting so am always collecting fabric !

SummersDesigns said...

Wow, those fabrics look great. Thanks and Merry Christmas!

Sarah C said...

I would love to win either of the packages! Fabric is always welcomed here!

Your family is in our thoughts. We hope that things start to turn around soon.

ChrisC said...

Your sewing room looks an awful lot like mine. Except I'm too packrat-ish to actually get rid of anything! And I go seeking more, uh, by entering giveaways on the internet. :-) I like both sets of scraps -- thanks for the chance to win! My email is bookgeekgirl at gmail dot com.

Rachel said...

Keeping my fingers crossed that Lucky number one shows up for once! I'd love to have the box of scraps!!

Thanks!

This is so nice of you! I'd like either!

Joy said...

Wow! How exciting that you cleaned out the sewing room! ;) It would be super fun to win the flat rate envelope with scraps! Hope that Isaiah is feeling better soon and that you get to go and visit John!!!

Terri S said...

Oh, pick me please!! I'm just a couple months back in to quilting and crafting and my stash is so pitiful!! I'd be thrilled with either one.

~Michelle~ said...

Yay for purging! I would love the flat rate envelope :)

Merry Christmas to you - sounds like it will be an unusual year, but I bet you'll have some great memories to look back on in a few years. :)

Sherri said...

Wow, you are amazing...with everything you have going on, and you're doing a giveaway! Hope everything is well with you and yours!

Blakely said...

I would love to win the Scrap envelope.

Kelly said...

I'd like to have both, please. :)

Thanks

Sandy said...

I would love either of these, so please enter me for both drawings! Glad to hear that you are all doing well, despite some sickness! Hope things start looking up soon!

Joanna said...

I suppose someone has to be first, even if number 1 isn't 'randomized' that often lol!! But, I must say, that since I am a quilter, especially applique, which enables me to use lots of little scraps, I would be all over the envelope full of scraps:) Though the home dec ones look yummy too!

Maggie said...

Either one would be awesome! My living room is currently covered with fabric and scraps so I feel you. But my roommate had never complained so I'm not about to worry.

Thank you for hosting this great giveaway. Happy Holidays!

The Rausch's said...

OOOO! I'm first!! Both for me please!!

Katie R said...

scraps!! :) although both are amazing!

Katie R said...

i thought I commented, but it's not showing up. :) I love the scraps, but both are great.

Evelyn said...

I'd be thrilled with that bag o' scraps. I'm keeping John in my thoughts, and appreciating the season all the more for it. Keeping my fingers crossed for all of you...

Ariana said...

I would love either one/both! Enjoy the holidays this week!

mommymae said...

i need to do the same thing to my sewing spot. as soon as the holiday stuff is done, i'm cleaning up shop. i'd take both packages.

Amy Yang said...

Those look like some great fabrics. I'll say I'm interested in both.

I'm glad to hear the John received his bone marrow transplant and I'll be sure to keep him in my prayers. I'm sure it can't be fun for him right now. Will he be in the hospital over Christmas?

Tricia said...

Pick me! Pick me! I'd be happy to take EITHER off of your hands but I'd probably choose the decor-weight-anything I can do to help you out!
Thanks for the giveaway!
Tricia

Tara said...

kelly jo said...

Leftovers are the best!! I'd love the home decor fabrics!!

Leslie Newton said...

I love your comments about dishes in the sink. My Mother-in-law always tells people that about me! I always like fabric, whether scraps or yards. Thanks!

kristine hanson said...

Hannah said...

ooooh, decorator fabric. We have five kids and fabric for slipcovers is always welcome!ha

Lindsey said...

"both" -Hope he gets better...my question is...how can you coordinate a giveaway and have a sick fellow at the same time. My world usually comes to a screeching halt when someone is down. Cookies? You're so brave.

Giddy for Paisley said...

What a great giveaway, that's a good idea for cleaning up the craft area. It sure would make it a lot more fun. I will have to keep that in mind the next time I clean up ;o)
I hope everyone feels better and thank you for doing the giveaway.
Either parcel would be great.

Holly said...

The cleanout is something I should do as well, but since you are offering, I would love either one :) Merry Christmas and best wishes to your family.

Southerner said...

Wow. I am so impressed by your ability to maintain a level of normalcy while going through what you're all going through... my prayers are with you, your husband, and your family.

That being said, my husband would kill me, but I'd love either...

Best wishes,

Lauren

Crystal said...

More good thoughts out to John from here. Hopefully, you'll be able to get in there and see him again for Christmas.

I'd like to enter for both, please.

Anina said...

Hi Katie! I don't need any more fabric but I just wanted to say that I'm thinking of you and your family every day!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Wishing you the peace of the holiday season. Wow, all you have going on and a give-away!

Your scraps (either kind) would work into my sewing plans.

Thanks for the opportunity.

Jeanelle R said...

Hi there! Found your blog from The Ornament Swap. Hope my silly little bird made you smile.

Isn't it funny how an envelope full of someone else's trash can make people happy!

Merry Christmas!
