on second thought.......

The giveaway it seems, was too hard for many--I'm sorry. I'm going to hold-off right now and hold the giveaway until I can come up with something else...plus. I also placed more items in the box. Pics to come on the new giveaway. There were very little comments under my giveaway post--You should have seen my inbox of the number of people wishing others good luck and letting me know that they do not know the designer fabrics, and I could barely count on just ONE hand the number of people that actually came up with more than 2 answers....so the number of folks that wished they knew and wanted to enter far out-weighed those that had actually entered. Sorry folks, I want to make this open to everyone. Does anyone have any ideas other than to just leave a comment?
************On another note, I was VERY busy sewing this weekend, completing orders and trying to catch up on the swaps I entered. I won't be entering 14 different swaps at the same time anymore....no matter how fun they are :)--(Yeah we'll see how long that lasts) Also, Amy Butler's donation for my Quilting For A Cause arrived :) Yay....Good thing there was a note in the box, otherwise my husband would have had my head if he thought I ordered more fabric..lol. Here's what she sent me: THANK YOU AMY!
Nice of her right? Another gernerous donation from wonderful fabric designers.
So, on top of sewing all day Friday and Saturday, I also attended the daily Biz Market on the mountain making sales and extra money for the holidays. We also decided to put up the tree again this year, and I also managed to find more pdf's and patterns to purchase. So let me leave you with some photos from my busy sewing weekend and a sneak peak for my swap partners into what you could be getting :)


Wrist pincushions, doll quilts, travel tissue covers, and so much more I have left to complete. I am apologizing now to my swap partners for the delay in getting your items out to you. I only hope that when you do finally receive them, it will be well worth the wait.

I also don't know of alot of the designers. However, I have most of the fabric, so I'm not needing more. I had not thought to combine those fabrics, but as soon as I saw them together they spoke to me. I know have a Double Wedding Ring in progress using 10 9of the fabrics, thanks for the ideal. You might for the next giveaway have them tell you what quilt pattern they would use. I could also see these fabrics in a 54/40 quilt. Love your blog, have a wonderful Christmas.

You sure have been busy Abbie! All of your swap partners are lucky! Not sure about your giveaway - guess the number of jelly beans in a jar? That was always popular when I was growing up (and still is). Or guess how much your giveaway weighs?
Have a Happy Day!

Those are really cute, you've been very busy! BTW, I like Shari's idea of guessing the weight of your giveaway. Clever!
