  1. Oh my. I don't think I could narrow it to one! I love the feathered friends and I adore Darla (I already bought a ton of it but I could always use more!) Red Henna in the Farmer's Market line by Sandi Henderson is my favorite fabric ever, so I could always use more of that. Or how about the pink damask by Tanya Whelan. Or the seaside flower or maybe.....

    Sigh...I need to win the lottery...

  2. I don't have a lot of yard work yet as spring has just showed up here. My husband has raked the grass and does most of it, I am only in charge of the flower beds. I'll get to planting right away I think, although not sure yet what is going in...I have three rhubarb plants in there so far, and I for sure want sweet peas. I love the smell of them!

  3. I LOVE yardwork! I spend most sunny days outside in my yard. I love everything about it. It is raining and raining and raining here. Too wet for yard work. So I will wait (not very patiently) for the rain to stop, and I can go play with my flowers, and the dirt. ooxx`jodi

  4. We rent and have no yard. All of my yard work involves rotary cutters and pinking shears. It's the best kind, I suspect!

    Too many fabrics to choose from. I do wish you had narrowed it down! Maybe some of the Bijoux tiled primose or maybe some Pop Garden paisley or daisies or very possibly the four print recess fabric in red. Decisive aren't I?

    No yard work for me.

  5. Ewwww, yard work. I will do dishes and laundry and wash the floors and won't complain too much. Well in this new house we don't have a yard yet! DS has been working to remedy that but he isn't quite to the point where he and his dad can plant the lawn. I prefer a few plants in pots on the porch and deck. Spring is just thinking about arriving here in north Idaho and I am tired of the BROWN! I do not get tired of the WHITE at all but this brown is just UGH!
    Fabric - oh what a tough decision - My first pick would be something from Wonderland - in RED. Second pick would be from Darla - also one of the reds, probably the damask.

  6. Yardwork - pah! - I don't like it either. We're hesding into winter now, so there's not much to be done anyway, except for scraping up the dog's, um...stuff.

    as for the yard of fabric - I don't think i can go past those Sweet polka dots. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  7. I leave the outside yardwork to DH if possible (except lawn mowing as I quite like that). But it's almost winter here, so there's plenty to do.

    I'm not gonna choose a fabrci from the store till you let me now I've won :-)

    ReplyDelete
  8. I'd love a yard - I've been dying to get my hands on some Darla! We're actually into Autumn here is Oz, and I don't do the yard work either...I'm not into dirt too...Lol! Give me a sewing machine any day!
    Best wishes,
    Jenelle

  9. The yardwork around here is done by my hubby. A wise woman told me (when I was newly married)that once he knows you can mow the lawn, then plan on doing it forever! I try to keep up on the weeding and trimming...but mowing an acre and a half is the big job!

    Yardage from the store...hmmm...I'd have to say something from Heather Bailey like Freshcut groovy floral. I have plans to make a blouse with some fabric from her Freshcut line and that would make a pretty addition. Thanks!

  10. My yard work comes in spurts. If I want to do it - I'll do it else it will wait for another day. The last one I had I cleared off my old cactus garden, and built three terrarium of all my favorite cactus. That was early this year or was it late last year. Well its been months.

    My favorite in your store (and need a charm pack) is the 5" charm squares SNIPPETS Moda quilt kit fabric retro

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'm thinking Pop Garden or Ginger Blossom or maybe Wonderland? =D
    Yardwork? Thankgoodness I do none of those! I live in an apartment building, with no grass or big potted plants. Just two tiny plants which I constantly forget to water. And this reminds me that I should water them now. Or soon. =P
    Thanks!

  12. I ordered from you via ebay - and now find myself drawn to your store and blog - such fun! I quilt, make grand daughter dresses, smock - right now am inthe middle of sewing for my daughter's wedding the beginning of June (help - only 2 1/2 more dresses to go - and a wedding gown to hem and bustle...)!
    My other fun is gardening - yes - the dreaded yard work. I am a master gardener in my state - and I love to play outside as much as I love to sew. Every year the flower and veggie gardens get bigger and I have less lawn to mow. Love the fabrics you offer - it is like being able to sew with my flower beds printed on fabrics!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I think I would go for some Wonderland... I've been craving for some of it since it came out!! Maybe the butterflies? I would have to think about it...

    As for yardwork... That's one of the advantages (maybe the only one!) of living in a teeny-tiny appartment with no garden at all. Don't complain about yardwork, just think how lucky you are to have some green around you!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I LOVE the Darla fabrics! I'd also "settle" for some Farmer's Market! Your fabric selection is wonderful! Now for the yardwork, I've never learned to start the mower!!...and my darling husband does a fantastic job, so I just keep cheering him on!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Well, spring has sprung in Alabama, but I think it has sprung a leak! My backyard has been underwater for so long the worms are drowning! So, as far as yardwork goes.....not much to do until it dries out. I'm sure we'll be crying for rain this summer, but for now, I'm over it!

    ReplyDelete
  16. i just posted pics of some of my yardwork.
    if the truth be known, i SO need to do more in the yard, but i'd rather be quilting.

    ReplyDelete
  17. We just moved to a new house last summer. It's on an acre and the whole thing is covered with wood chips - no grass! Which is fine until your 4 year old wants to play soccer, so we are contemplating laying some sod . . .
    I would love some of Sandi Henderson's Farmer's Market. Thanks so much.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yardwork...I still have a little to do. Trim back bushes and add some color. Oh yeah, and my rose bushes leaves are yellow so I need to do something about that. I just love the new Pumpkins Gone Wild...I love the brown floral. Amazing. I love all things Darla too. I can't believe how wonderful that line is.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I actually enjoy yardwork. I got a lot of flowers in for my birthday and next week, its time for tomatoes and beans. As for the fabric...I would love a yard of anything really! I am thinking the turquoise fabric with the red and pink roses by Darla Wheelan, of course anything polka dot or wonderland would work as well! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I have a husband to do that outside kind of yardwork while I'm inside with all the associated maintenance therein. It works for me! I would love to have a yard of the Darla aqua rose print. I'd buy a pack of the charm squares and whip up a lovely purse!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I am more a "supervisor" of yard work but we jsut moved to an acreage so there is lots more this year :) And I have a black thumb so I tend to stay away from plants and just work with the flower prints.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I don't do yard work myself. I do good to remember the to water the few flowers that are on my front porch!
    Blessings,
    Diane

    ReplyDelete
  23. Too hard to choose,but I think I'd take any of the Bijoux fabric by Heather Bailey. My "yard"work includes using up a lot of my stash...forget about the outside "yard"work. Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  24. We have not got yard so no yard work,but I liked,when we had at mom.
    I'd love to win. I'll choose after I win.(because I'm not a girl in Fortuna's Arms.)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love working in the yard, with the flowers and such. I leave the grass cutting to the hubs.
    Enter me, please!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Though I try, I don't have a great green thumb when it comes to plants. My son on the other hand is wonderful at yardwork. He grows tomatoes every year. My yard work consists of raking, trying to put in a few perennials and adding a whole bunch of annuals to make it look like I know what I am doing. I did look at all your fabric in the store and there were so many wonderful ones. It would be hard to decide.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I don't do anything that would get my hands dirty, so actual yardwork is out, but I will lower myself to cut the beautiful flowers my hubby cares for! He's in charge of everything outside of our four walls--and now that he's retired and I'm not, he also is in charge of everything inside the four walls! Life is good! Leaves me all the time in the world to do my sewing and knitting!

    ReplyDelete
  28. If any yardwork is to get done at my place then I'm doing it! I knew it was a condition of buying a house with a yard - hubby would much rather have a townhouse where someone else does it all lol! Yesterday I put my first plants of the season in. I use the lasagne garden method for my beds - love it!

    ReplyDelete
  29. My yard is tiny but I do like to brush out there- very satisfying, otherwise stroking the lavender leaves may not be work but is very pleasurable. Thinking of the yard took me to flowery fabrics- i like the Moda Pumpkins gone wild which look like flowers and Moda red bouquet building blocks fabric. If i'm feeling very girly I give a thumbs up to Darla blue rosie.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Morning. I have Fridays off and am planning on planting my tomatoes and cucumbers tomorrow! I am not a big gardener but LOVE fresh tomoatoes. And I love "Darla".

    ReplyDelete
  31. Living in the mountains gives the wild life plenty of opportunities to CONSUME all of my yardwork - so I frequent the local Farmer's Markets! Easy-peasy! love you both, Stitch

    ReplyDelete
  32. It is had to beat Darla, but I also like pumkins gone wild,and another favorite feathered friends, I only have a small picece of that,I got in a grab bag. I do not touch the garden, I kill all that I touch!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. WHAT? You don't do yard work? Girlfriend, you don't know what you're missing! It's definitely spring in Louisville (last weekend was the Ky Derby, after all) and I have been planting flowers, trees and shrubs like nobody's bidness. Trouble is, as I was sitting on the deck last night looking out at my yard I realized (with much panic), that there is absolutely no room left in my yard to stick even one more flower. WAAAAAAAA!! What to do now? I guess I'm limited to planters. oh well. Now that all the spring planting is over, I'll have more time to sew! And I can see the garden from my sewing room window! All is not lost after all! You already know how I feel about Darla. I love it all. And don't even get me started on Sweet and feathered friends. I'm thinking new napkins for summer are in order.

    ReplyDelete
  34. If the fabric gods were smiling down on me I would probably go with something from the Hello Betty line, or MoMo or perhaps the damask from the Darla line...
    Spring is just arriving here in MN and I have already cleaned out flower beds that were neglected last Fall. We'll see how long my motivation lasts, I start out strong and then lose interest which brings us back to Fall and totally neglecting the gardens and you see the pattern!!

  36. Ava Rose pink damask, or maybe the pink dot country fair by Denyse Schmidt, or perhaps the red Farmer's market apple dot by Sandi Henderson. Oh my goodness! I've never seen any of those except farmer's market in person! Well, it's been raining for like a week straight here, so there isn't any yard work to do! :D At least, that's what I'm telling myself!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love anything by Moda...the flowers in their fabrics! That's my kind of garden. I did plant a couple new plants this year, but it's already too hot here in S.Texas to be outside...yesterday was 96. I have someone cut the lawns. I do like looking out my sewing room window at the flowering bushes & new plants in bloom.

    ReplyDelete
  38. No yardwork for me this year. My landlord wants to put a patio in the backyard so there has been a hole in the middle of the yard for at least a year. maybe he'll fix it this summer (I think not).


    so many pretty fabric, what to choose?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh, do we have yard work to do here! A long winter left behind a mess to clean up. I also have flowers to plant, which is much more fun than the clean-up work I'm leaving for my husband and oldest son.

    I just adore the Darla fabric, and would love to make a great big quilt out of it.

  40. I would pick SIMPLICITY 3 Sisters Moda Fabric GREEN tucked pintuck - it's beautiful! My yard work this year is to start a little vege garden with my girls -- lets hope their interest doesn't die out too soon!

    ReplyDelete
  41. What a GREAT giveaway! Let me tell you, I feel like I've already done enough yard work for the season!! Shoveling and Hauling Rocks to finish a Landscape project, weeding the front flower bed, and getting my garden in order are just a few of the "yard things" I've been up to!

    ReplyDelete
  42. AS for the yard work....ummmm I supervise...how's that. :D

    I would love a yard of Darla....such gorgeous fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  43. We have been busy in the yard for over a month now. I still have to plant some more vegetables, but they might be on hiatus this season! I love the SPRING MEADOW Moda Fabric STRIPE pink yellow blue dots. I think it would look wonderful in the baby's room.

    ReplyDelete
  44. My "yardwork" takes place inside at the sewing machine! My husband does the outside! I do plant flowers and veggies, but I do that with my two little girls. Things may not be perfectly spaced or in order, but I love it just the way it is. I have "scrappy" flowerbeds...
    I would choose either the Darla Rose in aqua, or the Wonderland Tweedle Dee in pink. :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm in Spokane, Washington, so Spring hasn't really hit yet. But...I have beds to weed, flowers to plant, garden to plant, etc. I even occasionally mow. I would much rather be quilting! Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Our yardwork this summer is different...we have added a vegetable/herb garden...so far we have started the green peppers in the house and built our garden box outside. Hopefully if my children will help grow and weed the garden they may eat the veggies! Your shop has lots of lovely fabrics...I adore your farmers market apple dot red fabrics...thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Oh, big decision. You know the Darla charm pack has 62 squares, but I really like the Wonderland Jelly Roll.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Yardwork isn't on my list of hobbies either. I love all fabrics but I'm sure I could pick out something nice and springy! oohsaahsw@aol.com

    ReplyDelete
  49. The only yardwork I'm into would have to involve a yard of fabric!!! And if I win this drawing, the yard might be just what I need to get me inspired to make that table runner my mom hinted for a few weeks ago!!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. i am a lucky one, my hubby does all the yardwork...i would love the darla red gingham fabric! very summery!

    ReplyDelete
  51. You have so many beautiful fabrics - it's hard to pick just one! Though, I love the "Sweet Bubblegum Pink Sugar" or the "Farmer's Market Apple Dot". There's no yardwork for me around here - I live in a building that has it taken care of, but I will admit, I miss mowing the yard at my parent's house - it's a very satisfying work-out!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I Hate yard work! My two little ones make it for a 'too long of a process!' I just want to go out and get it done in 5 minutes.....would never happen, but I can dream!

    {LOVE} the entire line of darla, but LOVE the aqua with big red roses!

    ReplyDelete
  53. ONe GREAT thing about living in an apartment-- someone else does all the yard work!!! So I have plenty of time to sew (ha, ha!).

    I always have a hard time picking just one when it comes to fabric. . . but I have been thinking about pop garden or bijoix for a while. . . or maybe a wonderland print? I don't know!!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oh, such a hard choice, you have amazing fabrics in your store. But if forced, I would choose Hello Betty Sunny Side Up, Orange Teal Retro. I love that fabric.

    As for yard work, it never ends at our house (and it seriously competes with quilting). We have 13+ acres...right now my husband is building me new raised vegetable garden beds and I love them. Can't wait to get them planted...

    ReplyDelete
  55. I think I would pick the wonderland by momo collection.
    as for yardwork, lucky me we have gardeners, I just turn on the hose!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'm a gardening girl....like everything but keeping the rogue grass from creeping into the flower beds. So guess what needs the most work right now...ugh! I think my hubby will be having fun with the Round Up this weekend. :)

    Great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I fall on the avoid yardwork at all costs side of the fence. I use late hours as the excuse, but probably wouldn't do it regardless :)
    Love your fabric and have really been enjoying reading your blog!

  58. If by yardwork, you mean watching the gardening crew that blows the dirt off the sidewalk outside my apartment building, then yes - I do yardwork!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Very sweet fabrics I think I could find a use for a yard of the ticking.

    I don't have a yard so to speak since I live in an apartment, but I rent a garden space and am headed there today to weed, water, plant veggies and pull weeds. I work at a nursery so I am gardening almost everyday and still loving it!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Oh Desi, I now feel compelled to find you the perfect gardening gloves. The kind that will make you want, or even strongly desire, to do yardwork! Maybe I should find these magical gloves for myself first ..... :)

    oooooooooooh a full yard of fabric, yahoo!! I too do not do the yardwork at our house...I watch my husband do it...he has the "outside" chores and I have the inside....much cozier and warmer inside!

    ReplyDelete
  62. We've (my husband!:) been doing yard work for a couple weeks now. Lots of planting, pulling weeds, and mowing. I leave it all up to my husband, though, as that is his career field. I just say "looks great, honey!" and he's happy!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I don't have any yard work. part of the joy/unpleasentness of renting an apartment. I just don't do well with potted plants for the deck.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I think the Darla Aqua Blue Red Pink Roses is my favorite! And I do much of the yardwork here...mostly because I figure it's exercise that is less boring than walking!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I love the Sweet aqua blue icing sugar fabric!
    I live in an apartment, so there isn't any yard work, besides the 3 potted plants on our balcany, and my husband takes care of thos. When we do have a yard, he will probably still take care of the yard work, he likes doing it.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Yardwork? Uh....no, I don't do that. But I would happily work on a yard of Feathered Friends with the little birds..or the big birds.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I rent, and don't have any yardwork right now. It would be nice though...a big orchard in the back yard would be heaven! My pick would be the DARLA blue damask toile by Tanya Whelan. But there are so many options!

    ReplyDelete
  68. New fabrics are always so tempting.
    My yardwork is very quick to do. I wash my porch from all the dust. Do not have a garden so I just enjoy the flowers in my flowerpots, and have a lot of time for sewing

    ReplyDelete
  69. I absolutely adore the Darla collection! It's probably my favorite.

    Ahh, yard work. We bought our house two years ago, and at the time, I had no idea how much work the "extensive" landscaping would be! It can be overwhelming, but it's a nice escape!

    ReplyDelete
  70. My yardwork?...sitting on the patio stitching beautiful hexagon flowers. A few thread tangles from time to time, but no weeds!!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I'm not into yardwork either - and neither is my hubby. But he will mow the lawn every week and I'll buy a planter or a hanging basket.

    I'd love to make a Portabellopixie skirt for my daughter with the green water lily from ginger blossom - thanks for the chance!!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Here in southern California Spring happened in January, my poor roses are were so confused, yes by now roses are working on second blooming and the temperature today will be between 87 and 94 degrees. I love my garden and playing in the dirt that doesn’t mean that I like yard work but my hubby does; he enjoys mowing the lawn and sweeping every corner to perfection, he says is his relaxing time.
    I am so glad I found you guys; love the blog and all the freebies. Roses and roses and more roses love Darla :)

    Have a great day, and good luck to me! :p

    ReplyDelete
  73. I love the Darla red/pink ticking stripe. I adore the red and white... okay, maybe the green gingham too.

    I'm the gardener of the house here. The grass is just starting to grow again, and it's safe now to uncover all of the dead crud left over from last year in the garden. I hate that part.

    ReplyDelete
  74. We just moved into a house, so I am loving having a yard to work in! It's mostly grass so I'm mainly pulling dandelions (ugh!). But I did plant some new flowers a couple days ago. I can't wait to get a garden started though!

    What a fun and appropriate giveaway! thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Spring has been a little slow getting here this year, so I haven't done much yard work yet this year. Just a little weeding. The tulips are all in bloom right now and look so happy.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Your store has such cute fabrics in stock right now! I Love the Farmers market line. I love the cherry print and the blue with pink flowers print (can't remember names)! As for yardwork - yikes - I don't even like to talk or think about it. My husband is in charge of the hard stuff like mowing and trimming. All I have to do is water and weed, and I don't even like that. I love to have a beautiful yard, but I don't like having to do the work to get it. Too bad they don't stay looking great on their own.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I enjoy yard work when I can get myself out there. I love your wonderland prints. I would definitley get one of those!

    ReplyDelete
  78. I'd love a yard of something from the Wonderland line. I received 6 fat quarters as a gift and I want more :-)

    This year I'm not really doing any of the yardwork. My husband is taking care of it. My job is to keep the kids out of the vegetable garden :-)

  79. Oh thats a hard one. I think it is a tie between that red and white cheater cloth and the pink check darla. Nice fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I think my heart stopped when I saw this post. no.seriously.it.did!!
    I love the Darla line #1 and a whole yard... Holy heck!
    What a great surprise! It would make such a sweet baby girl quilt. That's my goal once the wedding shenanigans are over!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Wow that's a lot of yards! Well, my yard needs cut! Good thing hubby will be home on Saturday!

    ReplyDelete
  82. The aqua blue with red pink roses would be my first pick but I would happily take anything you have!
    Thanks.....Jane

  83. yardwork? HA! We live in a rental duplex and our unit has the front yard (other people have the back yard...bummer, I wish I had the back), but we hadn't mowed in a while because it wasn't growing and there had been lots of rain...until a week ago, when we got a note from our landlord "time to work on the upkeep of your yard." Ooops....my husband is in charge of the yard work and what a great job he did (though there is a little patch of grass that is a mohawk now). He went out and bought a bunch of new tools for the pruning and weeding --I bet that was really hard on him, going to the hardware store and everything. Poor guy ;)
    Thanks for the giveaway. I love looking at your Darla fabrics.

  84. I love looking at the flowers and grass and sometimes I will wed. BUT I don't like dirt under my nails either. I do love Darla fabric.

  85. My yardwork involved planting new flowers already, and I'm about to get started on our veggie garden! Nothing better than growing your own veggies :)

    ReplyDelete
  86. Yardwork schmardwork - LOL! Isn't that what boys are for? I'm more interested in the fiberous yardwork in your store.....I LOVE all of the Darla prints, but I'm jonesin' for some momo, like one perhaps...WONDERLAND Tweedle Dee pink MODA fabric MOMO flowers.
    Have a great day!

  87. i enjoy a little bit of yard work here and there. just did a bunch last month, mainly weeding from the winters growth, but now it is needing it a little more.

    thanks for such a lovely giveaway!! i would love to get a yard of fabric!! i'd probably pick some of the new feathered friends you had on here a little bit ago. :)]

  88. My husband is doing the yard work these days. I had started planting peas which he sprayed poison on in order to kill the mugwort and I haven't been out since.

  89. Yardwork? That's a guy thing. LOL

    I love the Cream ABC letters FABRIC Building Blocks alphabet MODA .... perfect for kids.

  90. I made a terrarium in a jar this week! That's the extent of my "yard"work! :) Thanks for the fantastic giveaway!!!

    ReplyDelete
  91. I leave the yardwork to my husband. The yardage, however, I'm all over it! I'm working on a red and white quilt right now and the Lily Red by Mary Engelbriet for Moda's Baskets of Flowers line looks good enough to eat! Oh, I never win these things, but it's so generous of you to offer a yard of fabric to your readers!

    ReplyDelete
  92. I do all the yard and garden work; flowers and vegetables; kids do the lawns, although our youngest leaves this year for college. Unless they come home for their summers, I have a feeling I'll be cutting the grass too...hubby has his job plus the farm work. Physically, I can't do all that I would like to do...I envision loveliness everywhere, but usually end up with weedy messes :( oh well.
    Of the fabs, it is a hard choice to make with so much in your shop. THink I'd like a yard of the wonderland tweedle dee red with momo flowers. THis line is so aptly named! someone is great at coming up with names for these lines....wish I was so talented!

  93. I love yard work. Great opportunity to get out and enjoy the weather. I've already prepped all of my flower gardens for the spring but plan to start a small veggie garden with my kids this weekend. And the fabric - how could anyone choose just 1?!?!? They are all so pretty. But, I think if I had to narrow it down to 1 - I'd pick the SPACEBOTS monster space alien or the SPACEBOTS space spaceships - either would be great in a quilt for my 5 year old boy.

  94. I'm seriously loving Darla right now! Fun fun!

    As for yardwork... I always talk about how I want things like a veggy garden, but really, yeah, I'm not really that girl. I kinda really don't like getting dirty:) And right now I'm lucky enough that my landlord does all our yardwork! Hurray for renting:)

  95. I really love the fabrics of Darla. As far as yardwork goes, I have put all kinds of annuals into pots since we are renting our home in England. All of the various pots look so pretty together. My husband has planted a small vegetable garden.

    Thanks for the weekly giveaways.

  98. I'm working on a Wonderland quilt right now, so I would have to pick Pepper for my fabric!

    As for yardwork, I live in a place where an association cares for such things. But back home at my folks' I look after the roses. :-)

  99. I haven't started my yard work yet but have lots of plans for the coming weeks as I really enjoy gardening. As for the Darla fabrics, they're all lovely, anyone would make me happy :). Thanks for the giveaway!

  101. I love anything with polka dots. Hubby does the yard work while I do the sewing. Works great for both of us.

  102. I hate yardwork but I don't like my yard to be the worst on the block, so the minimal gets done. My husband doesn't do any yard work so it all falls on me - yuck.

    I would much rather be sewing or baking!

  103. Okay here is my tragedy story of yard work. I live in southern CA so most of my yardwork has been done for over a month, including all my seedlings in the vegetable garden. One of my tomato plants from last year left me babies which always means a early harvest and the first two red of the tomatoes were almost ripe last Wed. I left them on the vine and went out on friday to enjoy my harvest. They were gone! I finally found part of one, so some animal came into the yard between wed night and friday morning and robbed me of my first harvest.

    I am certain that the Portugal Gold Victorian Moda fabric by April Cornell would brighten up my day and help me forget my tragedies of last week.

    Thanks for the giveaway,
    Kami

  104. Oh I love to work in my bitty garden.....'specially when the hummingbirds flit right by me, which they do all the time.
    Oh which fabric.....are you allowed to hope for a charm pak of Darla, or I would just let you pick something, anything. Thanks for giving us a chance at all this goodness.

  106. I have such bad allergies, that an allergist I saw while living in NC wrote me a prescription against doing any type of yardwork. And it's been six years now since I've done any. Lucky for me where we live there's inmate labor that does it for us. Other than that my hubby would pay for someone to come do it.

  107. Well...my flowers are blooming and bright in my yard here in sunny Californina.....I leave most of the major yard work for my gardener, but do maintain the hanging flower/plants around the patio.

  109. I need to go outside and weed, and plant my bulbs, and weed some more, and plant my vegetable garden....oh, forget it....I think I'll just go quilt. Sounds like a lot more fun!

  110. You would think having a large patio would cut down on the yardwork, but, NO! Must keep up with the weeds growing between the pavers. I would rather be quilting.
