sewmamasew giveaway

i'm participating in my first giveaway with sewmamasew and it's a little nerve wracking, especially since i forgot last night because i had dental work yesterday and was a little out of things. i've been going through my fabrics to move them into my new studio and it's unbelievable what i have!! (those of you who have seen my room know what i mean) and of course, my mom has been giving me all of her stash!! below is her bag of dotted swiss scraps. she kept every piece and when i went through it i too kept most of it. you can't find fabric like this anymore. 

this picture show some of the old shelves of fabric (sideways-sorry, trying to hurry)
this will be my first giveaway. it's 3 yards of daisy kingdom with matching ceramic buttons. the print is along one selvage. the original idea was to make something for my youngest daughter but that never happened.
the second giveaway is a 4 yard piece designed by eleanor peace bailey for daisy kingdom(another selvage print). if i'd have found this earlier i would have matched my wall color better and used this for curtains. there's another piece that goes with this to make an ironing board cover. it really is fun!!
and with both giveaways, i'll be including a surprise gift. i'll choose the winners with a number generator and will ship internationally. y'all go on over to sewmamasew and visit everyone for their prizes-i know i need more stuff!!

Hi, just stopped by to give a hug and say TY for stopping by. My sewing cabinet looks an awful lot like that one! Oh my. Got a sore throat and bloggy blues. Hope the rest of your week goes smoothly for you.

Sue, it's amazing how you have kept all those scrap polka dot fabrics from your mom and yours. Will you do a project on them? Love their colors.

And wow, fabric giveaway. Do you think i can also make a blouse out of those lovely lambs fabric with the buttons. Oh not me who's going to make though cause have no sewing machine :-(. But I'll have someone make it for me and what a cute blouse it will be, if ever (crossing my fingers) :-) It'sso adorable! Lol Both the fabrics are. The ladies with their bright dresses looks like they're having so much fun.

oohh my. My Mom made me a beautiful quilted jacket out of that daisy kingdom lamb fabric when I was about 6 or 7!!!! Complete with the lamb buttons which I'm missing one of. I still have the jacket to pass on to my daughter who is currently 2.5. I really, really hope I win! I'd love to replace the missing button and sew something coordinating for when my DD wears the jacket.

Oh. Man. Fingers, toes, everything crossed over here, lol.
