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!

I've had great fun, since I've won about a half dozen or so of the giveaways.....*S*

But I'm gonna let this last one go, cause I have plenty o'scraps of my own here.

Thx so much for all the things you've given us over the year.

I have so appreciated your giveaways, just seeing what you had each week made yucky Mondays much more fun. You have been more than generous with all of us.

I would love your little bits because I have never met a scrap that I didn't love and scrap quilts are my favorites, the more fabrics the merrier.

Yeah! Scraps!! I would love some scraps to make crazy blocks with- trying to build up my own scrap collection- this would help majorly!

Thanks!!

I love your giveaways - please enter my name in your draw - I need more scraps like I need a hole in the head but I do have a project that needs a lot of different colours!! ANna

I love scraps. No piece is too small for me. In fact, I'm making a quilt with 1/2" squares. When I'm finished it will contain 24,957 squares. Now if you thought I was crazy before, you know it......

As you might know, I am a scrap-aholic. These would go very nicely with the scraps that Vicki sent me for crumb blocks. Put my name in the hat.

Totty Teabag said...

Well it's quite a while since I won a giveaway, so I thought I would have-a-go-jo! Those itty bits look a good size for PCs...

Stephanie Pettengell said...

I don't need anymore scraps so I will pass on this one. Just thought I would pop in to thank you for the fun and also the blocks I won some time back. You have made a lot of people smile, thanks.

Shelina said...

Oh I absolutely love little scraps of fabric. I'm making a quilt where I am cutting fabric into scraps! Please count me in!

Tracey said...

I would love those scraps but as I have just won last week's prize, I think I had better let someone else enjoy these (Betty's 1/2" squares quilt sounds gorgeous!). Thank you so much for your generosity and wonderful blogging.

Becca said...

Kate-I'd love to be in the draw this time around. I've been working on some tiny little log cabin blocks and I'm kind of tired of looking at my own scraps so a breath of fresh fabric would be great.

I'm trying to resist saying "count me in"......oops! I said it lol (Don't tell my DH he thinks I've got enough scraps already). Add on my thanks too for your generosity over the last year.

Babs Schmidt said...

I'd love your little scraps.

I've never entered your drawings before, but I love reading your blog.

I love those scraps! Please add my name in your draw :)

And thanks for your giveaway!

trashalou said...

I cannot believe that right at the very end of what seems to have been a terrific saga of prizes I discover you! May I get in for the last hurrah?

I know I'm late, but as a recipient of a few of your giveaways I just wanted to chime in with my thanks!
