Will You Be Watching...

Downton Abby?

Tonight Season 3 begins on PBS. I'm going to try and work on my hexagon flowers but I'm not too sure I'll be able to concentrate on anything other than the show.

I can hardly wait....

Will you be watching too?

Elaine

With a New Outlook... and a Give-A-Way!

I am beginning to love my sewing room again thanks to all of you who made a purchase or two from my "Destash the Stash" sale.

I can "see" the back of the closet, the floor and my sewing machine...how great is that? I really feel that my energy is back into creating again, not boggled down by all the totes and fabric that I had. Sure, I still have a stash but it is on shelves and I can "see" everything without having to "unpack" totes. It's really nice!

And because I am so appreciative to all of you, I decided that I would have one last " Destash the Stash" Give-a-way.


So here we go...
18 Fat Eights of " The Merrimack Collection" by Judie Rothermel for Marcus Fabrics

2 Schnibbles Patterns by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. - "Two Bits" and "Joy Luck"

2 Jo Morton Coordinates Thread Packages - "Patriot" and "Forrest"

1 Itty Bitty Bear's Paw Pattern by Lynn Dash

And possibly a surprise or two!!

Just leave a comment on this post to enter my Give-a-Way which will end at midnight on Saturday, August 11th.

Good Luck!

Hugs,

Elaine
