Double Monday giveaway
Yep, two things today, you lucky peeps. And hey, I remembered it was Monday! Congratulations again to Ramona, who won the flying geese yesterday - well done & I hope you enjoy them. This week's treats are a set of bookcase blocks - these are from a swap, and there's nothing at all wrong with them except that I just no longer want to make a bookcase quilt. There are 12 blocks in total - shown here are six. The blocks were mostly paper-pieced, but the paper is off except for two - one of which is still in its three component pieces. Still, a nice start to a bookcase quilt, if you want to make one. I forget the precise size, but I think they are about 8 inches high by maybe 12 wide. In those regions, anyway.
And the other thing, which I actually fished back out of the bin in my sewing room today when I was organising, is this large handful of large beads and bits of jewelry which I have had for a LONG time, but which are simply too big to be of any use to me. To give an idea of scale, the large pink bead in centre is about 1.5" in diameter and about 3/4" thick.
If you are interested in either (or both) item, leave a comment on this post before Sunday (specify which thing if you only want one). I will draw two winners on Sunday and announce them on the blog. Watch (as they say) this space!
