  1. Wow first comment, feel like the early bird but also obliged to make it good! Fantastic fabric range. I have chosen 'authentic'- I am stubbornly so and it can land me in hot water by trying to be true to myself and others. Good luck to you all

  2. I love the fabric in the collection and that charm pack would be the best thing. What word would describe me: REAL. I try to create/make things that are useful at home or for someone.

  4. From that selection? Definitely "pure". LOL!!!!!
    Okay, maybe 'scruffy", or 'procrastinator' - are those words featured??

    ReplyDelete
  5. This is great fabric!! Reminds me of books, LOL.

    What kind of a person i am?? I am a booked and stiched up person, in a novel manner. You will find me criss-crossing on fabric OR you will find me reading criss-crosses on books, LOL.

    Of course, each day all this is after my son and I have 'spent' our time together:)

    Looking at your list, timeless fits me well:)

  6. Beautiful fabric! I feel a bit out of the loop, because this is the first time I have seen this line. I would say I fit into "authentic", though I wouldn't mind being "timeless"!

    ReplyDelete
  7. gorgeous fabric line! what work describes me? i would have to say REAL

    thanx again for the chance

    ReplyDelete
  8. "simple", I simple(y) must have that fabric! Just gorgeous fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I love that range just 'timeless' and I reckon that's me. I would like to think I'm timeless, go with the flow type person. I could certainly flow with a charm pack of this!!

  10. Beutiful fabrics. I LOVE fabrics with letters on so pleaaaaaaaaaaaase pick me as a winner :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Ah, such a great line!

    A word to describe me... Er... How bout 4?

    "Chasing Perfection and Losing"

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'd have to say I'm "timeless." It's about being a Renaissance woman, about appreciating all that is timeless in art, music, craft, beauty, literature and clothing!

    ReplyDelete
  13. i think that the word "real" describs me..

    thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Wow I love this fabric, I think timeless best describes me!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Using one of those words, I would choose "Real". It's my desire to be transparent and real to the people I am in relationship with and even those I have yet to form a relationship with. That's what God desires of me, and that is the desire of my own heart. I don't want to put on aires to impress.

    Thanks for you awesome, weekly giveaways.

  16. Gorgeous fabrics! The word that decribes me is "fresh". I love waking up to a fresh new day!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I think the word fresh describes me. Thanks so much for a great contest!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I scrounged for a word that really says "me" but 'crazy' wasn't a choice. I guess it would be real ---because you can't fake it forever. I'm a the real deal.. I'm a quilter....

    ReplyDelete
  19. Fantastic fabric's. Oh the possibilities! My word would have to be simple, I try to keep things that way at home in this crazy world.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I have been trying to be REAL. Life is too short not to be!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I think I would go with the natural... But I don't know what others would say about me :-)

    I LOVE fabric with writing on it... I really hope I win this one!!

  22. What a fantastic giveaway! Wow!
    And I think my word would be: simple ^^
    Thanks a lot for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh my goodness, I LOVE it!!!

    From those choices, I'd have to say authentic. I'm stubbornly true to myself, to the point that it gets me in trouble sometimes :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. SIMPLE....I could go amish in a heartbeat! Oh, to have a simple life that matched!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I don't see 'stressed out' on that lovely piece of fabric...am I missing it? That is the word that describes me right now..ok, Ill choose RENEW in a spirit of keeping my glass half full! Thanks for the chance, Id love some of this fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Today I'm "natural" -- no makeup.

    Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I shoot for simple- doesn't always come out that way :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Busy. That word would describe me right now...and probably every other mother in the world. Have a good weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm new here, but I love LOVE the name/concept of your blog. What with the chewy and stretchy... I love it!

    Anyways, I would love to be entered in your giveaway! Love this line.

    One word, you say? Hrm. I'm going to go with "pragmatic." Oh, wait, that one probably isn't in the print, huh? :-)

  30. I think my word would be real. I'm not a fake type person at all! I'm also genuine and authentic, but real probably sums it up! Count me in!

  31. Let me tell you...I'm keeping it SIMPLE these days. Love this fabric! Thanks for the chance.

  32. Lots of great words on there, but I think the one that suits me best is "real." What you see is what you get with me, no pretense.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I wish I could say simple describes me! haha! I am a senior this year, and I am off to English on my birthday!!! Ick!!! I would probably say that authentic describes me. For the most part I tell people what I think.

    ReplyDelete
  34. What great fabric and a great giveaway! I'd say of those words, it would be simple as I'm trying to simplify my life and focus on what's important to me...

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'd have to say timeless. Or is that just wishful thinking now that I'm about to turn 50?!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Authentic. That is so important! If people can't trust you to take you at your word or know that you will tell the truth, what is left?

    ReplyDelete
  37. I pick true, because once I get to know a person I will always support them and be a true friend.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think the word that best decribes me is simple. I love this fabric line!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love that collection - the newsprint style fabric is awesome!

    Of all those words I'd say 'natural' but that's because I really couldn't be bothered to apply make up today...so I'm going for the natural (or maybe half dead, lizard eyes, scary zombie) look today. I just caught sight of myself in the mirror, I think I'll go for a less natural look tomorrow ;)

    ReplyDelete
  40. That's great fabric....Simple is me in a nut shell. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  41. For me, I guess REAL would be the best word. I am just who I am and with many imperfections I just try to be myself and do a little better every day.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh wow! I love this fabric collection! There are many good words to choose from but I think the best word for me would be simple. I like simple things, and simple ways. Thanks for such a great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh most definitely "Simple". Just a most un-complicated kind of gal with the most basic and simple of desires. I loved this fabric when I first saw it, great choice!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I really really like this line of fabric. It's subdued, but modern. Kind of blends in but is unique...and you want to go and seek it out. Subdued...kind of like me.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I like the word fresh. I'm not sure it describes me - but it reminds me of one of my aunts who if her husband would show signs of affection in public - she would call him fresh They were married 65 years. It's a cute word, but I don't think people use it in that context any longer.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I guess I'd have to say real, no surprises here!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Sitting here in my jeans and sneakers, I'd have to go with "simple." Love this fabric line!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Super fabric!
    One word, Simple
    Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I'm going with TIMELESS; my great grandmother is 101 years old, so I fully expect to live to be roughly six thousand. :P
    Thanks for the chance at the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I love the fabric line. I have found a lot of uses for charm packs lately. The word that best describes me would be true because I am pretty much "what you see is what you get". Thanks for your nice comment on my blog.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Renew! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'm "timeless". Thank you so much for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I'm timeless, of course, Dahling.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Love it! Fabulous fabric.

    I would probably be simple-- all I need is some chocolate and fabric and my sewing machine and I am good to go!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I absolutely love this entire line. People tell me all the time that I am REAL, so I'm going to have to go with that.

    quiltingbee(at)scinternet(dot)net

    ReplyDelete
  57. cute! I am going with timeless, because I try to be that way...

    ReplyDelete
  58. L-O-V-E this fabric.
    As for me "renew" is the word, I'm always trying to reinvent myself.

    ReplyDelete
  59. 'Simple' that's me! But, if you asked my better half he might disagree...what does he know!

    ReplyDelete
  60. My mouth is hanging open in shock and delight! I have been dying to get my hands on some au-then-tic and have been saving all my pennies but don't have enough yet. So what I'm trying to say is I'll do a couple cartwheels if I were to win.
    A word that describes me: right now I would have to say tired, but overall I would probably say sweet. Thanks for making my day with this fab giveaway.

  61. Cool fabric! I'm simple as in I love simple things. :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. I love this fabric line. It's amazing. I will choose "Simple". Because I love things to be simple...which they usually are not. I like to live simply. Thanks for a chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I love this line of fabric, something about it makes me very happy. I would say Real describes me.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Oh wow! Great collection of fabric...thanks for the giveaway...i would say "real" describes me. --Melanie (rphmel30@yahoo.com)

    ReplyDelete
  65. That's some pretty cute fabric! I would say simple is probably the best word that describes me or wait is that because I'm a simpleton??!! LOL! Hope you guys are doing well. Hugs.

    ReplyDelete
  66. RENEW.....This may sound corny, but each day when I wake up I see it as an opportunity to RENEW myself and make that day better than the one before. So RENEW sums it up pretty well for me!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I have been coveting this fabric since I first saw it, but my budget has been tightened.
    The name of the line "Authentic" is the word that I would choose. Some might say weird, but I say authentic!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I think "real" describes me best...I hope. I consider myself a pretty open an honest person, and I think that falls under the category of "real", right? I'm not a faker basically.

    ReplyDelete
  69. What a wonderful giveaway! I think I would have to choose "Simple" as the best word for me, but not because I AM Simple, but I like things around me to be Simple!

    ReplyDelete
  70. ooooooooooh I have been waiting for this line...I love it!! I would say "simple" describes me best...I am a simple girl with simple pleasures....does not take much to make me happy! :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. Real. I live it like it is. I say it like it is. Love the fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Natural--even when I don't want to be. People can read me like a book!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I love this fabric group! I'm not sure why but I think it could be so fun! I would love to get my hands on some of it!!! I think Authentic does discribe me. What you see is what you get;0)

    ReplyDelete
  74. I'm pretty simple, but since I really only wear foundation, I guess natural also applies

    ReplyDelete
  75. Love this line and I have since the very first peek of it. My word would be simple. I am pretty simple in the way I live, in what I require, nothing too exciting and flashy here. BTW-posting from across the street from Disneyland,does that get me any extra points??? :D

    ReplyDelete
  76. I'm choosing Real. I just don't like to play a lot of drama games. I am who I am :)
    LOVE this fabric, by the way :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. Very nice!!
    I would have to say I'm simple or authentic.

    ReplyDelete
  78. This fabric is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooFabulous!!! I love it. I'm sure you couldn't tell.

    :)R.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Natural. For sure.

    Wow, what a beautiful set of patterns. I am in love.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I would have to pick renew- I dont know why but fall is always a time of renewal for me- I love the fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Authentic is the best word for me. Generous is the best word for you! Thanks for the giveaway...I love this fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  82. I had a hard time choosing which word describes me best...there are several which i felt drawn to, but then thought about all aspects of them, and decided that wasn't quite it. So, the word that describes me best is 'Real.' I try to be as real as I can in my actions, my thoughts, my life.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I guess I would have to be REAL. Not very exciting but true, just keeping it real!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Fabric-hoarding? Packrat didn't seem approprate. :)

    ReplyDelete
  85. I've been thinking about this fabric since I saw a preview of it online a few months ago. LOVE IT! One word about me...probably forgetful. I used to be so reliable, but 3 kids in 4 years has turned my brain into mush and I can't remember anything!

    ReplyDelete
  86. I am definitely authentic. Brutally so. It's a blessing and a curse.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Love this line!

    I guess "real" would be me...sometimes too real.

    keels(at)mvdsl(dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  98. I love this line!
    I'm having a hard time picking one word - "simple" or "real" - but "real" probably fits better - I'm happy with who I am and I don't pretend to be anything else.

    ReplyDelete
  99. My first thought was simple...but I think my husband might beg to differ, so we'll go with real. No one can argue with that! :)

    Great giveaway! :)

    ReplyDelete
  100. am very "real" and certainly "authentic". People tell me all the time that I make a very true and real first impression and often say I am "too nice to be true", but I'm just that, nice. Life is too short to be anything else...

  103. I love the fabric! I think of those words I would use natural... or simple lol.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I don't know if it describes me anymore, but one of my first words was "Fresh!", referring to the ice cream I was eating at the time. :-D

    ReplyDelete
  105. I'm definitely simple!!! lol

    ReplyDelete
  106. heh, this is fun giveaway!
    I think that natural is best word to describe me. Lovely fabric

    ReplyDelete
  107. I am going to go with simple--not because I am simple, but because I *try* to keep my life simple. I'm working on staying that way.

    ReplyDelete
  108. "Fresh"--you can take that however you want ;)
    just kidding, no my hubby thinks that when a conversation or situation is stale I am the bit of fresh air everyone needs-- so yep--I'm fresh

    ReplyDelete
  109. I'd have to pick 'simple;'to describe me. I like this line.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  111. Simple...I don't need much and love to live a simple life :)

    ReplyDelete
  112. I'd have to say the best word for me is "simple". Not too fussy here. And that fabric is fantastic

    ReplyDelete
  113. ummmm REAL- everyone knows do not ask my opinion unless you really truly want to hear it. I try to be gentle but they have caught on that "that's interesting" is code for "yuck!"

    ReplyDelete
  114. I'd probably choose "simple" to describe myself--thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  115. So excited because this is one of my favrote lines!! My word would definitely be REAL!

    ReplyDelete
  116. I love the fabric. I would say The word REAl describes me best.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  119. "simple" is me... There isn't much complexity with me...

    ReplyDelete
  120. I'm drooling.

    In a word I'd have to say "deep". It's the first thing my husband said so I'm going with it.

    Thank you for the generous giveaway.

  121. I think "authentic" describes me right now - I'm a stay-at-home mom that's busy with housework, diapers, schoolwork, often has a kid on my hip or my leg, and baby spit on my shirt :)

    ReplyDelete
  122. Thanks for the opportunity in your giveaway/drawing. This fabric would make an adorable sewing tote!

    The word within the fabric that best describes me would be "authentic" for sure (worthy of trust, belief and genuine)!!!

    Cheers,
    Lanette

    ReplyDelete
  124. Oh this is fun fabric. The first word that jumped out at me was Simple. I don't need much to make me happy, just family and good friends. I don't need the big fancy house - just a place to call home. But I would like one of those new fancy sewing machines and a great room to put it in with all my stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Oh I love the fabric! I'd like to say I'm "simple" but my husband would disagree! :)

    ReplyDelete
  126. I would definitely go with NATURAL!

    Great giveaway, thanks for entering me in the drawing.

    ReplyDelete
  127. Simple..that would be me...not of mind though! Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  128. I would have to be 'True', as I am incredibly truthful, terrible liar! Find it impossible to keep secrets due to this and generally call it as I see it! As you can imagine this sometimes gets me into trouble!
    What a wonderful fabric range.

    ReplyDelete
  129. lets see its not pure, to many ER nights, not simple,sometimes I like to complicate things ok , alot. Its probably natural no make up etc. I do shower though, but I could probably live life as a woodswoman if ya know what I mean...Love ya

    ReplyDelete
  130. I love the authentic collection. It's designs are simple and that best describe me.

    ReplyDelete
  136. I would have to say...."REAL"
    i have always been told by people that I dont sugar coat things and I am always myself. I just learned from a young age that you cant please anyone, but yourself, so i just try to stay as real as possible for myself. :)
