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

Mama Masek said...

Woohoo....what a great idea! Thanks so much!

picketsews said...

This is over the top generous. I redid my sewing room this past spring and moved all of my fabric from totes to pieces of prim furniture that I had. It is sorta like coming out of the closet when everyone can see my stash. But I really love being able to see what I have. It also helps with the impulse to purchase fabric when I don't have room for it. Love your blog and your willingness to share with all of us. Thank you so much.

Hi Elaine, You are so brave doing your de-stashing. I wish I could be brave enough to even start sorting. I just seem to have to hang on to all this old fabric. I'm afraid I might need it someday!! :-) thanks for the chance to win...

LesQuilts said...

Hi!
It is freeing to find the carpet, or the shelving of books, or the window!
I've just been doing the same process in preparation to sell our home and move! Congratulations!
Take care, Leslie

Another very generous giveaway - thanks for the chance to win. Glad you are settling in to your destashed sewing room!

justducky65 said...

Great news that the creative juice is flowing once again now that you can see your carpet! LOL I know that for me also a clean area helps me create more too, but alas I am in the category of take it out and put it away later and then later is when I can't see the sewing machine anymore.

I agree with a previous comment, we need pics now! Thanks again :)

dortha said...

That is so sweet of you to be doing another Give Away! I am glad you are feeling creative again and that things are getting organized! I know I have been doing the same thing lately and it has been so inspiring to see fabric you forgot you had and to just flip through books too!

Barbara Woods said...

really good giveaway thank you

Michele said...

It really is a liberating experience when you lose clutter in the house. I've also purged all my old fabric from the stash. This weekend I'm going to vacuum in my sewing room. Haven't seen much of the floor in over a year. The bags and totes are everywhere!
Thank you for the opportunity to win this great giveaway. Love, love love to win.

I wish I was as brave as you and destash some of my stuff. I guess I'm a hopeless fabric hoarder. Love your giveaway.

I don't need another inch of fabric in my house, but your giveaway is just too tempting. The CW fabrics are my weakness.
Thanks for the generosity.

Ellee said...

What nice items in your giveaway -- the patterns especially! soparkaveataoldotcom

Karen said...

When I clean up, straighten up, and put away the loose ends, the room feels bigger, and more inviting.

Would be happy to be chosen for any of the giveaway goodies. They all sound wonderful.

Glad you are getting back into the groove...Karencg
