One Year Giveaway!!

One year is a milestone...a baby may be walking...a candle may be blown... an anniversary may be celebrated..a life may change...

===============================

Can't believe I have kept this up for a year....That's a LOT of dots....

I started about the time my room was new with this 2-line-no-picture-post on April 17, 2010:

"...Hopefully, I can continue to add to this blog. I needed somewhere to keep pictures and (mis)adventures while sewing. Maybe this is it. .."

...wondering if I would/could continue ...

And so far I have.. thanks to the encouragement of my followers and others in this virtual world of blogging and internet..So many things I have learned and now practiced..so many friends I have found (not virtual, either!)..so many sites full of suggestions, tutorials, and encouragement.


Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

So here comes the Giveaway...

First...I am starting this post about a month ahead of time so that I won't be pressured by time to do it all at once. So as I am writing this, I have a stack of items next to me, ready to be given away...Also during this time line, dear readers/followers of mine, I am continuing to go through my stash to decide what will stay and what will be going to a new home.  Hopefully the stack will get bigger as I continue this quest.

And who is the beneficiary of this activity?  The winner of this Giveaway.

Rules (such as they are) first, because pictures of items may be continually added and I don't want to forget to put this already commonly known, but necessary, portion of a giveaway post...

1)  Comment please and be available for notification and verification or no winner..

2)  Please post on your blog (if you have one) about this giveaway

3)  DH will draw names

4)  Closing Date - April 25, 2011 at 11:59pm (Added one more day after posting, because I realized the 24th was Easter Sunday...)


Now for the fun part:


1 1/2 yards.. Point of interest...I tried to erase a light line I created eons ago when I was trying to decide how to cut this.  Obviously, I did not go through with it.  Lovely design and possibilities....



Decent size Remnants = little larger than scraps= batiks


Used, but in very good shape....


Patterns/Instructions


...a can't do without in my house....


..older fabric from Wal-Mart..striped one a little stiff, even after washing..

...those cream gadgets are slide & lock cord adjusters I used when making wine bags to close them... (one dozen, if I counted right)


and finally, just a group of smaller remnants that blend together....




That's it...Enjoy the anticipation and check in on April 25 as stated earlier...one winner will get it all....
