The fog


is lifting! And I am finally seeing the light of day. Thank you so much for all of your well wishes. It was so encouraging to see your sweet comments. I tried to answer most of them, but may have missed a few of you. But know that I appreciated everyone's get well thoughts.

And as the light has finally cleared my head, I started looking through some of my fabric stash and thought I might have a ONE DAY giveaway. Sew Cindy does this every once in a while, and it seems like a fun thing for my blog readers.

A few years ago, when my quilting buddies and I were doing a lot of charity quilts, I accumulated a healthy collection of Homespun fabrics.

So if you are interested in some Homespun, leave one comment on this post and tomorrow I will pick a winner!

ONE DAY!!

Glad to hear you're feeling better! I've been really into homespuns lately, so I'd be glad to take them off your hands :)

Glad your feeling yourself again.

SewCalGal said...

I wanted to say that I'm really happy you are starting to feel better. Beautiful fabrics, but please don't pick me. You have many who sound like they can put this to a good use.

But as an FYI, I am working with a group that is making a charity fundraising quilt where the Christmas Stocking, in each block, uses homespuns. It has been fun to pull scraps from a variety of quilter's stash. If no one else had come forward I'd certainly be interested in these beautiful homespun for this project, but truly I think we probably have enough for what we are doing.

Stay healthy!

I'm so glad you are starting to feel better. There's nothing worse than having a nasty cold in January, when it's all dark and miserable outside.

Suzie said...

I think I'm late, but anyways, it is a lovely homespun collection!
