Car Boot(-ish) Giveaway

You know how your stand at the flea market or car boot sale is a little embarrassing?  It is filled with the stuff that does not match your personality, your home or your taste, but it's out there for everyone to see.  Well, that is how I feel about this post.  Stick with me folks!  I recently tidied my sewing area and have a few bits and pieces that either I do not need or are not to my taste.  I was hoping to find them new homes.  Anyone want to adopt a goodie?

A bobbin organizer.  I picked this up in Joann's the last time I was in the US along with the spool organizer.  I have my spools organized like crazy, but this just never caught on in my sewing space. It is completely new and never used.

A fall foliage pattern.  This wallhanging (40x49") pattern I picked up as a giveaway at a quilting weekend. It is just not my style, but I like the idea.  Does it suit your home/stash?

Random green and blue fabric.  My mom found this at home and saved it thinking it was mine.  Funny...I've never seen it before!  Anyway, she gave it to me.  The selvage does not have text on it, so I do not know the manufacturer, the composition (100% cotton or a cotton mix), or if it's hand dyed.  Its just short  of 1.5 meters and kind of matches Kona Pistachio to give you an idea of the color.  In fairness, the contrast of blue and green is exaggerated here.  The colors are really a bit more muted.


Little chalk pencils. They are filled with blue, pink or white chalk to suit any project.  They come with a handy-dandy brush too.  Never this a theme?

If you would like any of the above, just leave a comment below by Monday 11 July.  We'll make this giveaway quick.  If you are interested in all of them, just say so. If only one strikes you, please specify which one.  I will use the random number generator (assuming there's more than one of you interested in my weirdo-stuff) to match goodies with their adopted homes Monday night at 5PM Galway time. 

I plan to host another giveaway for my 100th post.  I am open to ideas of what happiness you would like to see coming your way.  Is it fabric?  Notions?  A book or DVD?  What would brighten your day?

Oh my!! Please could you add me to the 'interested in chalk pencils' list. I think I'll pass on the rest, although I'd like to see how you package up the bobbin holder!
Thanks lovey x

I'm liking the fabric and the pattern. It looks like a good scrap buster, and lets face it you can never have enough fabric!

Count me in please for all except the chalk pencils - although sending the spool holder anywhere could be tricky!!!

Oh I'd love the bobbin holder - I need somewhere for my bobbins now although we plan to add more room to our house next year and that has to include sewing space for me! I've got those pencils and use them very occasionally - seemed like a good idea at the time!
Thanks you generous lady!

Count me in for all but the quilt pattern looks a little too complicated for me :P

I love the bobbin holder though I have been trying to figure out how to make something similar :)

Thank you for being so very generous with such a lovely giveaway :)


Irina said...

Terri said...

I love the fabric... nice color and a light that I've been looking for... my stash is so bright and dark. I have a bunch of oddments like yours that I have never used, but can't give away due to the fact that they were gifts, and if I even offer them on my blog, someone will get hurt. Ahhhh, life.
Please put my name in for the fabric!

I love the fabric and the bobbin holder - I'm still a new sewer and that pattern looks a bit tricky -- thanks for the giveaway!
