Last weekly giveaway (and winner)
Well, the wintery/Christmassy stars from last week were fairly popular, but I have now drawn a winner, who is no11 - aka Tracey. Tracey, if you are out there, get in touch by email (katelnorth at yahoo dot com) and let me know where I should send the snowflakes...
This week, you will have to work harder for your blocks, because what I'm giving away is a big pile of scraps - my scrap basket was full to overflowing - this is the little basket of scraps which are too small to cut into the size squares I keep, which means, they are mostly under 2.5" square. Some might be strips narrower than 2" as well. This is about a third of what was in there. It would be a nice envelope full, for those of you who are into little bits. Any takers, please leave a comment before Monday.
I'm really coming to the end of the stuff I have to get rid of (there are perhaps a few more things), so I thought I might look back to see when the first giveaway was, and the first blog post tagged with the word "giveaway" came up as 23/6/07 - how's that for a coincidence? That wasn't my weekly giveaway, as it happens - that started in September - but I still think it's a sign, so I'm going to make this my last regular weekly giveaway. Which is not to say there won't be more stuff in future, but probably more like once a month, rather than once a week. I still have a number of boxes of blocks and things, which may yield a few spares once I get them made into tops. And I'm sure there will be other things to go - but as I no longer have a huge stack of stuff needing new homes, it makes sense to stop trying to make it weekly and just go for the ad hoc giveaway... I hope you've had fun with it!
