De-Stashing Giveaway.....

As you may recall, back in June I was given a knitting machine by a family friend. I have enjoyed it a lot. I recently went back to Illinois for a visit. While I was there, the sweet lady who gave me the machine, gave me all the accessories to go with it. She also gave me literally about 35 years worth of patterns. I don't even know how to use all of it yet. I hope to go and have another lesson one of these days. My problem is that my little sewing room is busting at the seams (no pun intended, lol). I have absolutely no space for everything that I have, plus all the new stuff, too. Therefore I am on a mission to de-stash and try and de-clutter this tiny little room. That said, I plan to give some of the stuff away on my blog here. I am also looking for a charity that might take some of the items. I have some fabric, some floral crafting stuff and a few other odds and ends. I might even go through my pattern stash and thin it out some, too.
So....
for the first giveaway, I have these two pieces of Christmas fabric that I will be giving away. They are both just short of 1 yard in length, 100% cotton. I had preshrunk these pieces at one point in time. I have had them in my stash for years. I was going to make skirts out of them, but grew tired of making skirts so these sort of fell by the wayside. I will give them both away together to the same person. Still plenty of time to use them for this Holiday season.


Secondly I have this pile of snippets. They are all random sizes, colors and fabrics. I have NOT sorted through them. Most are quilters cottons, but some are not. Most of them are smaller than 2 inches in size. Some will be so small that they are not useable. Like I said, I just tossed them all in a bin as I worked on different projects and I have not sorted them. They would be great for something like Amandajean's Ticker Tape quilt or Mini Ticker Tape quilt. I just do not have the time or the energy to deal with them, nor the space to store them. I would say that they would all fit into a large shoe box, if that helps you know how much there is.


So to win all you have to do is enter... :0) Just leave me a reply to this post and indicate which giveaway you are interested in, either the Christmas fabrics or the scraps. I will draw a winner randomly for each on Tuesday, Nov 3.

Oh I would love to Christmas Fabric. I dug out a Christmas CD two days ago to start getting me in the spirit and to inspire me to start working on a few projects.

I would love the scraps. I fell in love with Amanda's ticker tape quilt the second I saw it. I just don't have enough scraps to do it justice yet. Thanks for sharing!

I would LOVE the scraps! I really want to make either a ticker tape quilt, or a X-string quilt, but lack the brights that I want to use. Thanks!!
