This Beauty Screams Giveaway




I was digging through my fabric stash the other day looking for inspiration and I came across this gorgeous piece. It spoke to me, yes, it began as a soft whisper then reached a crescendo that I was unable to ignore!
We need to shake things up around here a little bit. This bloggy world has been a little lethargic lately. Have we all been afflicted by SAD? Is that it? Are we just sitting like lumps and waiting for spring to arrive? Christmas was only a few weeks ago, but seems like forever. For me, this is the draggiest part of the year. How about you?
Onward...This piece of fabric is lovely, the colors are just fabulous. It looks like a watercolor painting. What would you imagine this should become? What would you like to see made out of this? Leave a comment and let me know and this will give you one entry to win the giveaway which will end on February 28th. Next week we will have an opportunity for additional entries. Be creative and let me know what you would like to see.

You should make another one of those clothes-line purses! I LOVED the one I got for Christmas ;)

I think it should be a summer wrap-around skirt. Although I like Jenn's idea about the purse, but I think it would be wasted on that.

I'm not very creative, but it looks like grapes and leaves so I'd use it for something decorative above the wine rack or something in the kitchen, maybe an apron.

You know, it's funny you bring up the lethargic blog thing. I've been feeling a little that way myself lately, and I've noticed that on many of the blogs I read that the number of comments is dropping off. Or they're really cursory. I wonder if others are feeling the same way? I think this would make a good shirt. I love Hawaiian shirts.

Well I'm just all bouncy and happy for no particular reason. How big is that piece of cloth anyway? When I know that then I can offer a suggestion as to what I want - I mean, what you can make...

I'd say a quilt, but then you'd make me really make one and I already have one sitting on the couch that is half-hand quilted that I'm not in the mood to finish. So, with all that, may I just say that I love plum fabrics?? I do.

During the summer, we Arizonans tend to wear very little when at home. Over the year I have bought sarongs to wrap around myself when trying to keep cool. The neat thing about a sarong it has many uses: a wrap skirt, a shawl, beach mat, picnic cloth, tote bag, etc.......I see this beautiful fabric as a sarong.

The fabric is lovely but since I don't know the first thing of what to do with fabric, I wouldn't make anything with it!

And yes, this is a dreary time of year here too. It's foggy or rainy here and I'm working 10 hour days wishing April 15th would get here quick. The flowers are starting to bloom and the grass is going to need to be mowed soon so I guess spring is around the corner!

Everyone must be suffering from SAD, it's like a ghost town in the blogosphere. I keep checking the news sites because I am sure something is happening, which is keeping everyone away, and I must be missing it. I can't wait for May when I can see grass again.

How about a throw pillow or a spring tote?

I don't know about SAD. I think I have NHAJD, Not Having a Job Disorder. I've been very mopey lately and haven't been doing the things I normally do, like reading blogs and updating my own. Sorry it's taken me so long to enter this. Hopefully, I'm not too late, and thanks for entering mine.
