A Give Away


861134_f120I mentioned earlier in the week that I was going to have a give away and I thought it was time to start it.   3 winners will be chosen – 1 package to each winner and maybe a couple other smaller things from the sewing room thrown in that I no longer want!  Give Away is  open to all.  When Craftsy had their Black Friday sale I picked up some 5 inch charm packages to give away.  I want you to be able to try out their new Boundless solids (and other fabrics in that line) and see how bright and colorful they are for yourselves!  I compare the Boundless line to Kona Cotton at a slightly lower price.    Give Away entries start today – leave me a comment telling me what part of the world you are from for a chance to win 1 charm package  If you have never left me comment before your comment might have to be approved before it shows up – do not leave more than one comment – it will be approved sometime later in the day when I sit down to check mail.  Winners will be chosen on Wednesday – leave comments on this post only.  Make sure you have an email link for me so I can contact you!!





I find it hard to get a photo of charm packages but I hope this gives you an idea of what they look like and what kind of colors are in them.  Right now Craftsy is having a 12 day of Christmas sales – it actually started a couple days ago and I forgot to mention it – different specials each day – go in through the link on the side bar or above in the first paragraph.  A great way to try new things out at a lower price.

And Yes – I had a lazy sewing day yesterday and I have nothing else to share – I was at the machine briefly but only to fix a pair of pajama pants.  I went shopping to get a few things and bought a small European Cypress tree to put next to the sewing table – it is little and it can be planted outside when Christmas is over.  I will look and see what little decorations I can put on this tree when we start to get the decorations out – Sunday maybe – rain today and the boxes are in the workshop – it can wait so the boxes do not get wet bringing them to the house.  It doesn’t happen often that I do no stitching but yes it does happen once in awhile – maybe more to share tomorrow.


I won’t be answering your comments on the blog post as that would mess up the count – but I am reading them!

  • Gretchen Dec 3, 2016

    I live in northern Indiana, 10 miles south of the Michigan line. I’ve been wondering what the boundless fabrics are like. I like the Bella solids. I used a white Bella solid in my Dear Jane quilt. I think Kona can be difficult to quilt sometimes. Have a great day! villacrestfarm@gmail.com
