Karma giveaway :-)

{This giveaway is now closed}

Well, once again I have been spoiled :-) And when good things happen, I like to spread the word about the goodhearted people out there. AND I would like to pay it forward. How about a giveaway to share my luck?

But first, take a peek at some great things from some wonderful people- yup, I am talking about bloggers again!

Giveaways- The stars aligned and I won 2 great giveaways in 2 days last week! First, a $50 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop from Bec at Chasing Cottons. I am soooo buying some of the Children at Play fabrics by Sarah Jane when they are out. Love them! Naturally, I am certain I will spend much more than the $50 ;) Don't tell the hubby! These fabrics would make the perfect picnic blanket, me thinks. A big thanks to Bec and Fat Quarter Shop!


The very next day, I won an assortment of AWESOME Denyse Schmidt charms from Natalie at Greenleaf Goods! Some of my very favorites! So excited to get my hands on these. There is a funny story to go with that one, if you want to read on ;) Thanks so much, Natalie!!
Mail- I have received a couple wonderful and unexpected bits of mail this week. First off, I have to thank Amy from one of my favorite blogs, Diary of a Quilter. A while back I asked if she would mind picking some extra Denyse Schmidt fabric from JoAnn's that I could buy from her, and she very happily accommodated my request. And now this very thoughtful lady has sent me another "bonus" package of extra prints she had found later, as a present, including a piece of my FAVORITE yellow print. Thanks so much Amy! This is one line I can't wait to cut into.

I have made a friend in a new Canadian blogger, Sarah, from Coincidentally Quilting. She saw that I had won some Mendocino from (another Canuck) Felicity, and emailed me offering to send me some of her own Mendocino scraps from her own quilts made with this line. Along with those fabulous scraps, Sarah also included some other Heather Ross and Munki Munki (gnomes!!!! unicorns!!! ), some adorable Japanese prints, and some Halloween scraps.

In addition, she sent some sweet Spoonflower fabric she had designed herself, and a card with a print of an INCREDIBLE watercolor paining she had done. What a talented lady!! Thank you, Sarah :-)

As you can see, my cup runneth over with Good Things this week, and I think it is only fair to balance out the universe by paying it forward. So, I am thinking a little giveaway is in order.

So, what the heck am I giving away?

How about a Heather Ross grab bag of scraps? I will throw in a little of my own Munki Munki collection, some pieces of Far Far Away 2 and I will also share some of my Far Far Away 3 once it arrives. All shapes and sizes....will dig through my stash and put together a little package for you.

To enter, leave a comment. Anything will do. Anyone can enter. One entry per person, please. I will draw a winner next week sometime....May the force be with you ;)

Jodi-JoJoMia's Place said...

You are lucky! Thanks for sharing the love. I have been wanting some Heather Ross but didn't discover it until recently so you know how expensive it is to get it from someone. I love the Denyse Schmidt fabrics you won too, I have gotten some of those. I am making a pillow out of the DS quilts fabrics right now.

Traci Turchin said...

You are so lucky! I am so jealous of your $$ to buy Children at Play--I've been on a buying ban for a month and a half to save up for when it comes out--I want it all!! I can't wait to see what you do with it--I know you will inspire me!

Wendy said...

Tawny said...

So if I win, does that mean you don't have to pay for postage and therefore get an extra large bag of scraps? hehehe I'm kidding... what a terrific way to pay it forward. Love the idea!

amber said...

Caren said...

That's great! You've got some fun sewing in your future! Hey - I just tried my hand at making fabric flowers for the first time. I made mine out of sapphire blue jersey. I had to do quite a bit with buttons on the inside, though, because without some bling it looked like a blue ribbon (you know, the kind you win at the fair)!!!

Natalie said...

Gorgeous fabrics all around!! I love those heather ross prints, and have very few of them, so what are the odds I'd win your giveaway?? :) If you have any extras and are ever looking to swap, I'm game!

corina said...

You deserved something good to happen, after having to deal with the awful flooding. Thanks for sharing your good fortune!

Oo, lovely, this sounds like a great bunch of scraps! Thanks for the chance to enter :)

Sarah said...

HI Kristie,

So glad you liked the scraps I sent :) That chandelier fabric is actually a painting that my daughter painted when she was seven. She wasn't too happy when I got it done she said it was embarrassing, I love it and still trying to find the perfect project for it. Maybe we should do a swap of munki's we are missing ;)

Dana said...

I would adore the fabrics if I won them so please add me to the giveaway!

What a special gift! I believe karma is about sharing with the world and not expecting anything back. Everytime I give, I give with an open heart and want nothing in return but love. Thank you for opening your heart.

Many thanks for a great blog with heads up of wonderful fabrics.
