Since my mom has been ill and I'm not optimistic that she'll be back at her home any time soon, I've taken to cleaning up her place. Is it the elderly who are terrible housekeepers? I mean, EEEW! Possibly my mom was never a great housecleaner, but her house is in need of some serious cleaning. VBG. And throwing away of stuff she will never need.
It makes me wonder, though, what would someone say about MY house if they came in and found piles and piles of STUFF everywhere?? And I don't think I'm a pack-rat... Well, it has motivated me to get rid of stuff from my house. Janet O. is doing her farmer's wife quilt in Christmas fabrics and I offered to share (dump!) my Christmas fabrics with her.
So, one half is going to Janet and the other half is up for grabs!! Want yards and yards of Christmas/winter fabrics? Send me your email with a comment and I'll draw a winner on Friday morning.
Here's what they look like:
And I'm just starting to get rid of stuff. I'm vowing to give away SOMETHING every week. Next week? BOOKS!! Stay tuned!!!
Love to you all,
One person's stuff is another person's treasure! I'd love a chance for some Christmas fabrics.ReplyDelete

Next time we need a photo.....
How fabalous! I love Christmas material! Do I just leave a comment here, or should I email you?ReplyDelete
I just helped a friend whos mother passed away. She didn't quilt, so no fabric but I got a bunch of things sewing related, needles, buttons, lace, etc. I've been thinking about cleaning out things I don't use, too. It gets you to thinking. Thanks for the chance to win some Christmas fabrics!ReplyDelete
I'm always in awe when I'm watching the crime shows, how they are able to find fingerprints of the killers in a house.......cuz if they came into mine, they'd be hardpressed to find a surface without stuff piled on it! HA! Pack rat....maybe! Never put stuff away.....yep! Guess I should be sorting and giving away too, huh?ReplyDelete
What pretty fabric! :)ReplyDelete
I just need to learn how to organize better and I wouldn't have the stacks!

Been doing the same thing in my sewing room. In order to be more productive, things I don't use or want any more are going! I feel liberated 😊ReplyDelete
I would love this fabric. What a treasure.ReplyDelete
Sent you the email, and my comment is here. I don't have much Christmas fabric.... so send away.... now other kinds of fabric I can trade you yard for yard....ReplyDelete
Wow, thank you for the chance at a giveaway. I guess I haven't been at this long enough as I really have no piles of fabric. I have used all my Christmas fabric this year on placemats so that cupboard is bare! Ha, ha...ReplyDelete
Don't have any Christmas fabrics. Would love chance to win some.ReplyDelete
Wow, Randy, thanks--the fabrics look great! I am a winner and I didn't even enter. : )ReplyDelete
I look at all the STUFF in my house and know it's time to start getting serious about it... passing things along, donate things, toss things, etc. I don't want my kids to have to deal with all this STUFF!ReplyDelete
Thanks for your kind offer to share some Christmas fabrics... would love to win some!
Ooooooh! I love Christmas fabrics. Would love to have them... Bwquilts at yahoo dot comReplyDelete
Thanks for the generous offer! pat dot chubb at me dot comReplyDelete
Yes, yes, yes! I want to be in your drawing for those wonderful fabrics! And a very generous offer it is. :-)ReplyDelete
I'm collecting Christmas fabrics to make a tree skirt - these would be an excellent addition to the very few I have at the moment. northernknitter at yahoo dot comReplyDelete
Randy, a generous offer to be sure, I have posted your giveaway on my blog today.ReplyDelete
My mother lives with me and I have to get a family member to take her visiting before I can get to the rooting out of the junk that accumulates. Good for you. I too am de-stashing and giving to others is a great feeling.
I would love to give your extra Christmas fabric a home. mdmontalvo at yahoo dot com.
Good for you, getting rid of what you don't need. I wish I could do that. Christmas fabrics don't stand a chance around here. Our guild makes Christmas stockings for nursing home patients, and we can always use more fabrics.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the give-away contest.
One can never have enough fabric!ReplyDelete
The Bag Lady sent me over. I'd love to have those fabrics!ReplyDelete
I'm a newbie quilter, so don't have much of a stash yet myself.
And I just love winter/Christmas fabrics.
The Bag Lady sent me. I love Christmas fabric. I use it all the time. Thanks for clearing out your stash and offering a give away.ReplyDelete
Oh, such a lovely give away! Thanks so much! Even we can't wait for spring it is always time to sew something for christmas...ReplyDelete
I am/was destashing too. I have a bin of stuff that needs to live with someone else. My DD and her new neighbor want to learn to quilt, so I told them to shop the bin for fabric and I will teach them.ReplyDelete
I don't have any Christmas fabrics, so I would love to inherit this stash! I think part of the problem with the elderly not cleaning well is that they can't see very well!ReplyDelete
Would love to take that fabric off your hand. Been debating starting your Farmer's Wife quilt along, have the book and want to do it, just need to get motivated. Again thanks for the opportunity to enter and follow you. Robert, in northern Iowa.ReplyDelete
I would love to have your Christmas fabric! I'm hoping to do scrappy Christmas quilts for my three grown children and this would really come in handy.ReplyDelete
i would so love to win this fabric! my stash of holiday fabric has been dwindling over the past few years and i haven't been replacing it. seems i tell myself i'll get more each year, but then with holiday presents to buy, i just never have the extra money to do it! thanks for offering this!ReplyDelete
I'd love to add those fabrics to my stash which is really lacking in holiday fabrics.ReplyDelete
I'm working on a scrappy Christmas quilt and would love to marry your scraps with mine. Thanks for the chance!ReplyDelete
The bag lady sent me here. I love the Christmas fabrics. But, I think that too much to ship to me. Anyway, wish your mom get well soon..ReplyDelete
Oh how generous of you! I don't collect those fabrics but they sure would be helpful in my "stockings for soldiers" project. I make stockings to pass out to volunteers, they fill them with gifts, then we ship them off to soldiers serving overseas.ReplyDelete
Oops, I clicked the wrond profile button...I'm not anonymous...I'm diane from herewego.typepad.com :)ReplyDelete
It's really hard going thru your parents things isn't it? It sure has made me look at the things I have and wonder why I'm keeping them. I don't think my house would pass the white glove test but then my son is not the best housekeeper so I really don't have to worry about that! :) Your Mom might surprise you and recover enough to get back home. I'll keep you both in my prayers.ReplyDelete
The fabrics would be lovely for a Christmas tree skirt that I want to make for my son's family.ReplyDelete
There's so many memories in some of my accumulations that it's been hard for me to part with them. Maybe someday.
I would enjoy having your Christmas fabrics. I love fabric.ReplyDelete
I would love your Christmas fabrics! I need to make myself a Christmas quilt!ReplyDelete
