Give Away, Day 5!!!...sharing the Joy!

I don't know about you but I am really enjoying this Give Away.  It is such a nice way to pass on the enjoyment I have had with these patterns...give up my hording ways (when it comes to quilting patterns, books and magazines) and make room for new stuff...which brings me to the quilting diet that Sandy, Anne and I are starting in 2012.  We have made a pack for the first quarter of the new year to not purchase any new projects, fabrics or patterns!  The only spending that is allowed are notions, backing and batting.  This is the perfect beginning for the 2012 Woolie UFO Challenge!  It is really gonna be hard and I break out in a sweat every time I think of it!  But the reality is...I have a LOT of UFO's and if I want to buy anything in the second quarter I am going to have to show Sandy and Anne that I have made a dent in my quilting room!  


The WINNER of the Day 4 Give Away coughed up by the dog dish is Mimi!!! who said, "Oh. oh. oh!! Pick me, pick me!!  The moose hanging would be a perfect gift for my guy!! Thanks for the chance.  The Christmas fabric is pretty too!  Send me your mailing address and I will brave the post office and send it on!

Now for Day 5's Give Away!  Beautiful wool birds!  They are dimensional and can be hung year round but would look beautiful on a Christmas tree.  I will throw in a small piece of red wool....I am starting to sweat!  You know the drill, you must be a registered follower and leave a comment on this blog!


When I was a kid I loved Bing Crosby and Frank was the coolest...so I had to include them in my Christmas Carol count down.  Have a great Saturday!

  15. Congratulations Mimi!!! I must have missed that moose one!!! Ratz!!! lol

    I really LOVE the birds! Red wool??? Two of my favorite words...red...and wool!!! I would love to have my name in Enzo's dish for this one!

    You are joining me on my fabric/stash diet???? I've been on mine for 3 years now, and starting it is VERY scary! I had this mental picture of me sitting in an empty sewing room with no fabrics in sight....just a couple of pins and a quiet sewing machine. lol I've only added a few pieces when I have won them at guild meetings, or other things like gifts. The only caveat on that is that if I don't have enough of something that can coordinate with fabrics to piece a backing, or need a batting, I can buy them.

    You can do this!!! Think of this as a challenge to see how creative you can be with matching up or coordinating stash fabrics. It's a lot of fun. You might even get addicted to it, you know. lol
