fabric for me, fabric for you...


*Edited to say:  This giveaway is now closed.  Hopefully I'll post a winner later today.*
Please bear with me if I don't get back here right away, my son has an unexpected appointment this morning with the doctor.  Fingers crossed nothing serious is turned up.


Oh look, a blogiversary gift turned up in my mailbox recently!


I love the entire Going Coastal fabric line, but especially 'Patchwork Plaid' 
{according to my son's grammer book, you use italics for book titles and quotes for short stories, but it neglected to give the rule for the names of fabric lines vs. print names.  tut, tut. I think his text is woefully lacking, don't you?}

I don't usually like to post about my fabric purchases, but I was sooo happy to put my patchwork plaid with the rest of these lovelies, I hope you don't mind indulging me  :)


I think I might make a zig-zag quilt similar to this one by Amanda Jean.


don't you just love this guy?
hmmm, every time I get out my Going Coastal I get a craving for a good chowder :)

Ok, tha'ts my fabric, but what about fabric for you lovely peeps, right? 

Well, I was at my LQS the other day, wondering what I would offer up for a celebratory giveaway, and look what I found:


Is anyone interested in some OOP Henna Garden? 
I can't remember the official name for this colorway, but it is the bright pink/light pink version.  {somebody is going to comment and let me know this is known as the 'pink' colorway, and then I'll just feel silly.  I know it.}


Anyway, I have one yard of this lovely, lovely henna garden waiting for a new home!
{want to see it again?}


Want to make it yours?
1. leave a comment on this post
2. if you are a follower, leave another comment saying so

I don't think there is any need to bother Mr. Random.org, my kids are rather random.  I'll let one of them pick a number  :)   {they did so well picking a winner last time, after all}

I'll keep this giveaway open until I've had my coffee Friday morning, and a winner will be anounced that day.  Please make sure you leave an e-mail address in your comment if you are a no-reply blogger.  Entries without an e-mail address will be invalid. 

In the meantime, I'll be celebrating with lots of sewing - This is February vacation week for us! :)  {we aren't going anywhere fun or anything.  we just aren't schooling.  and I'll be sewing.  that's my kind of vacation.}

Have a happy week, everyone!  :)
