Four bags and counting - so let's celebrate!


I have just four bags left in the dining room - woo hoo!  So in honor of reaching the finish line for the fabric restoration, I've put my hand into each bag left and pulled out one piece of fabric.  This is what I pulled out...


2 yards of a black 'n pink embroidered sweater knit
1.5 yards of a black wool

3 yards of a toast sweatery knit
4 yards of a lt blue poly blend 

...now here's the good news.  I'm going to give, yes give, these fabrics to one lucky sewist. 

The Giveaway Rules are as follows:
  • You have to leave a comment on this post ONLY to be eligible to win.
  • The comment should tell me if you follow me on bloglovin, feedly or via blogger/friend connect.  
  • You must follow me to be a winner!  Following the blog by bookmarking it, doesn't count.
  • The comments section will be open until Tuesday, July 9, 2013 - 11:59pm EST for you to leave a comment.  
  • I will pick a winner Wednesday, July 10th and post it to the blog.  You will have until Friday, July 12th to leave me a message.  If you don't pick up your prize by then, I will pick a new winner on Saturday, July 13th.
  • The contest is open to US Residents only UNLESS you're willing to pay the postage to have the goods shipped to you outside the US.  Please state that if you leave a comment and you're not in the United States.
So celebrate with me by sharing some of my fabric bounty and that this task is almost done. Hopefully I will be happily sitting behind my sewing machine soon! Ready, set....write!  

...as always more later!

  2. Congrats on finishing that enormous task! You must be so relieved.

    I subscribe to your blog - and my other faves - via RSS feed, so I can see whenever there's a new post, right on my Yahoo home page.

    But just in case subscribing doesn't count, I just created a Feedly thing and you're the first and only blogger I follow that way.

    OMGoodness I would love to win some of your amazing fabric. Thank you for the chance!

  3. Good for you - I know this has been daunting.

    I follow you on Feedly!

  4. I follow you on bloglovin and feedly. I'm still debating which one I should keep. I'm on a self imposed no buying fabric for six months diet. The sweater knits would a welcome addition to the stash without breaking my diet :)

  5. Hi Carolyn, I follow your blog, both on Google Friend Connect and Bloglovin, and sometimes mention you on my blog, Red Cardinal. You are one of my all-time favourites for sewing inspiration, and I have tried many of your fantastic ideas. Love the fabric, especially the pink/black, and what a great giveaway. Would be more than happy to pay postage to Australia.

  10. Great giveaway, but count me out since I live across-the-pond! Good luck to all those who jump into this draw.
    Curiosity strikes me, Carolyn, what did you originally plan to make with the 3 yards of toast sweatery knit??? It looks scrumptious, particularly since it is winter here...J

  11. Hey Carolyn. I follow you on Bloglovin. I've been following you for several years. And I've felt so bad for you each time the "cave" has experienced a glitch. Here's hoping this was the last time. Love the fabric choices!

  12. Carolyn, I follow you on Bloglovin. Having just reorganized my sewing room - and I have about 1/10th of the fabric you do - I'm impressed with your new digs!

  17. Hi Carolynn, I've followed your blog for years on Google Reader and made the switch to Bloglovin last week. I was lucky enough to find your blog just as my kids reached adulthood and I could return to sewing. I've learned so much about fitting and persevering in the face of sewing setbacks from you. Thanks for the inspiration!---Amy

  23. Hey, Carolyn, I follow you on both feedly and bloglovin' as I decide which will replace Google Reader for me. I'm leaning toward bloglovin', though, as it's so much easier to leave comments on blogs now.

  25. As if I need more fabric! LOL. But I would love to get my greedy little hands on just a small morsel from your stash. I promise I'd dedicate and name the garment after you. I've been following you for ever...and you know it. I'm currently following you on Google and Bloglovin. Glad you're finally getting to the end of your adventure. I'm currently in the middle of a redecorating project and every room in the house is a mess. Hopefully in the next week or so everything will be as it should be. TFS
