Birthday Giveaway (and Stash Report Week 18)
In two days I will be another year older. To celebrate, I will give one of you a gift (more details below).
I've reached both Lucy Ricardo's age (29) and Jack Benny's age (39) and have to decide which to go with - I'm leaning towards Lucy. Although, the first time I helped in my son's kindergarten class this spring one of his classmates told me that I looked like his grandma, not his mom!
On a happier note: The birthday celebration started a bit early with a great package from my April swap partner in the Flickr Monthly Fabric Swap Group.
Pretty batiks, yummy chocolate and a pretty Villa Rose pattern from Christine in Washington state!
Our weather here was so nice most of this week that I've been outside, not inside sewing a single stitch. The only additions are the pretty 1/4 yd cuts of extra fabric that my partner sent me. So, my numbers are practically unchanged from last week.
Here's what I've pulled out for one of you! There will be a few little goodies added to the bundle.
Four FQs and a charm pack of 45 different dot fabrics. The lemon, lettuce, and blue floral fabrics are from Paintbrush Studios. The neutral is a Lori Holt design for Riley Blake. The 5" charms are cut by moi from the various dots I've used in my 3/4" hexie flowers, which I've gotten away from recently.
This will be a quick giveaway, open to all. Please leave one comment on this post telling me if you do hand sewing and, if so, what your most recent hand project is.
Rules and such: A winner will be determined by the Random Number Generator on Tuesday evening (May 7th) at 9PM CST. Any comment after 9M on Tuesday will not be included in the giveaway. All "no reply" comments will also be discarded. Please, if you are not sure if you are a "no reply" blogger, then leave your email address in the comment so that I can reach you. If the prize is not claimed via email response by Thursday evening (May 9th) at 9PM, then I will draw another winner.
I know it is annoying, but the word verification is still on. I tried removing it and still got spam, so it is there to stay.
