cleaning=giveaway



So things have finally calmed down around here. I finished my class last friday and John went to back to work on Monday. Isaiah's school is closed this week so I finally got some time to hang out with him again, just me and him. It's been so nice. I finally started going through my scrap bags and I've decided that it's time for a giveaway. Plus this also happens to be my 350th post so it seems like a perfect time for a giveaway. I have a ridiculous amount of scraps because I really never throw anything away. Even tiny little pieces. For some reason I always think I'm going to need them. It might be a sickness. Anyway, I have a FRE stuffed with all sorts of scraps. Some are larger like fat quarters and others are just small scraps that would be good for patchwork. To win just leave me a comment telling me something about yourself. It could be anything, like "hi I'm Katie and I really hate putting silverware away." To earn an extra entry, you can either tweet about it or post it to your blog. Just make sure to mention it in your comment here. I'll pick a winner on Monday afternoon. Hope you all have a great weekend.

The Sterks said...

Hello, I'm Jennifer. I am exactly the same way about fabric scraps and save EVERYTHING. Didn't help when I started finding quilting blogs these past few months and discovered log cabin patterns and such (which I still have not tried). Gee, I'm so bad I'm even after someone else's scraps! Yup, definitely a sickness ;)

scrapworking said...

Hi, I'm Sharon in FL...I'm finishing my pre-reqs for the RN-Nursing program (Fall 2010) and find time to squeeze in minutes of sewing/quilting to de-stress!! Would love to win your scraps!! Thanks for the opp!

Southerner said...

I am Holly and I am teaching a sewing class each Friday to four home schooled girls. I hope that I can teach them and encourage them to love to sew. My sewing teacher caused me to put it away for many years. We are making an IPod/camera cozy now. This material could be used by them to make some scrappy scarves or scrappy belts. I think they would enjoy that.

Kama said...

Hi, I'm Kama. Today I want to look for blue iron on letters for my son's birthday banner that I made him. He'll be turning 1 next month. I bought black ones, but blue ones would look so much better. We are also going to a birthday party for his friend who is turning 2. I would like to sew all day...lots of Christmas projects and a craft fair to get ready for!!

I'm Jessica and I have a clothes problem. I have too much clothing. I finally looked at my pile and said "ENOUGH!" I now have two trash bags filled with clothes to bring to Good Will.

I think the only thing I have more of than clothing is fabric. Help me feed that addiction! Haha!

I sure hope I win those fabrics, if I do, I am going to cut them all up into little squares to add to my pile of leaders and enders that will eventually become a nine patch quilt!

Cheers!

Sandi said...

Hi, my name is Sandi. I spend more time dreaming of fabric, then actually sewing the fabric. And I, like others who have posted, hate putting laundry away. When I'm not dreaming of fabric, I dream of having someone to come to my laundry. :)

Hi, I'm Tara! Silverware individually doesn't bother me, but as a whole, I detest emptying the dishwasher. I don't mind stacking it, but really, I'd rather clean the bathroom than unload the dishwasher. Weird, huh?

Susan said...

Hi, my name is Susan. My husband travels a lot on business, so quilting helps to keep me sane.
I love the little things in life- a child's blue eyes, a tiny lizard darting along the ledge. Congratulations on your 350th post. Truly amazing.

Susan said...

I forgot, I'd be pleased as punch to mention your giveaway on my blog.

Renee said...

I too hate doing dishes. I'd rather cook/bake and let some one else do the clean up. Been busy doing a lot of baking for the up coming holidays with lots of company. But I still find time to do my quilting. Just finished a paperdoll pillowcase. Need to make 10 more for my grand daughters under the age of ten as gifts. Would love your scraps to try some new ideas.

David said...

Hi My name is Renee. I hate doing dishes too. I would rather cook/bake than clean. I am busy baking for our upcoming holidays with lots of company coming. I still find time to do my quilting. I just finished making a pillow cover using paper dolls material. I have to make 10 more for all my grand daughters under the age of 10, I would love to win your scraps to try an interesting idea I just saw today.

Etty said...

Hi, I never win anything so I don't expect to this time. I just wanted to wish you well on your 350th. You are very generous to have this give away. Susan mentioned your give away on her blog, so here I am for the 1st time.
Thanks,
Etty
