Giveaway Day!

Spent last week with Des.
We actually accomplished a lot, usually we
just sit around and talk about doing things.
We moved my daughter into
 her college apartment.
Even took an unexpected road trip.
 
And now I'm back trying
 to get on with
 life.
Great color
Great fabric
First up - Gracie Girl, Lori Holt's latest.
I hope you've seen her blog,
because her house is darling.
So is her fabric...
There are 10" squares, 7" squares, 5" squares,
 3.5" squares,
3.5" jelly roll and a 2.5" jelly roll.


 Here is High Street by Lily Ashbury.
I have a project in mind for this,
we have a little yardage of it too.

  

 

These Kona solids are so fantastic in person,

just bright, rich color.
They have a new
Sunset and Sunrise set.
Please tilt your head to the left.
I just got a new computer and trying
to figure out why this is sideways,
is the very least of my problems.


 And finally, there's Florence
by Denyse Schmidt.
"Smart, sassy and sophisticated."


 Our giveaway today is a charm pack of your choice.
Sunrise - Kona
Sunset - Kona
or Florence

Update:  Congrats to Lindag1947!
You are the winner tonight!
To enter the drawing, tell me
 which one you like and why.
Random drawing later tonight.
