The Great Destash Giveaway ( winner announced)

Seems like forever ago now that is started cleaning my sewing room!  I am getting closer to where I am satisfied with what I have and where it is all placed ( meaning I can walk in my room and not trip over piles any longer). I had mentioned a destash giveaway on instagram and there was plenty of support so here is the first...


This giveaway is a  STUNNING Dear Stella fat quarter bundle and two spools of Aurifil thread, the orange spool is 50wt #5001 and the green spool is 40wt #2240.




Thank you everyone!  Loved reading all the plans for the summer! More snow and school delays here.

Congratulations to


 Denise Clason said...
We love having picnics and pool party's.

We go to the beach. We try to rent a house that allows dogs! Even though my dog is afraid of waves, it is just nice to have him with us.

I don't really go anywhere in the Summer. I use the season to continue sewing, needlework, reading, gardening and just plain catch up and get ready for Fall. Thanks for a great giveaway.

Nykie P said...

We spend our days by the pool with huge bowls of chilled watermelon slices, iced lemonade (grandma's recipe) and our evenings by the BBQ with family and friends. What could be better? ;)

maggieinthemountains said...

Hike and read and sew.

Karen Fisher said...

Hopefully going to Hawaii to see my auntie

jenna said...

Every summer we rent a cottage on the lake, we all look forward to it all year. I would love to win this! So pretty!

bezaz said...

I go and visit my family in Oklahoma. I'm ready for a vacation now, in fact!

Eileen Lloyd said...

We go camping and I pack my sewing and supplies to take with me so I can sew during the day

Foster Momma said...

We take little mini trips over the summer-my parents have a property in the mountains, so we tend to go there camping a lot, as it is the cheapest things we can do but still get away. We live in town, so the kids love having the freedom to run on 72 acres without much supervision. They pick flowers, and catch frogs, and cook smore's over the fire. Such fun family memories.

Nancy said...

On our summer holidays we go to a trailer north of us where it is very quiet. We read, swim, do puzzles and handquilting.
In the summer I plan to go to a conference in San Franscico where one our sons woks.

kim hyde said...

beach, sun and a lot of swimmming!!

BJM said...

I hope to go to the beach.

charlotte l said...

We like to go to the mountains and relax and spend time in nature! Thanks!

Louise said...

Love to stay home, but definitely try to get my kayak wet! Love your giveaway! Jodi. Jgrzzz@gmail.com

JLVerde said...

Absolutely NOTHING.

Ok, I do go to the beach but once I'm there I just laze about and do as little as possible. It's so relaxing.

(great giveaway)

Lee Ann L. said...

Wow. What a wonderful giveaway. Aurifil Quilt Patchwork and Embroidery Threads on facebook gave me the heads up about this giveaway and that is how I found your blog. You have a new follower via feedly. :-)

Central Oregon Modern Quilt Guild said...

Generally there are no plans, but often there is a road trip with a quilt shop stop somewhere along the way

Zelda15 said...

I'm going to stay home this year. I'll be setting up my new sewing studio this year. I can't wait to get into the larger spare room so I can spread out and finally get organized. I'm sew tired of hunting for items I need. Thanks for offering this great giveaway! Dannie995@gmail.com

Peg said...

Does a trip to
England, Scotland and Ireland in the early fall count?

csburns said...

I seldom take vacations except for cruises! Leaving on a quilting cruise on Sunday!

april dawn said...

In March we are going to WA DC and the end of May we are going to an air show. Other than that just swimming in our pool.

patricia said...

We never take a summer vacation. Lucky enough to live by the beach. Off season, we just pick a city and check it out. Always turns out to be on a river. Guess we like the look!

Alicia said...

WHAT summer vacation? Hubby & I run a little shop that used to be a grocery store but is now veggie gardening and QUILTS.Because we want to be there when our customers come, there is no vacation, no days off. Six days a week (sounds like a Beatles song!) The good thing is that with quilting, work is actually spelled F-U-N !

Ann said...

Hoping to be fishing and crabbing in Haida Gwaii

sofen said...

On the hammock in my garden with some knitting or crocheting and an audiobook on the ear!

This summer we're taking the grandkids to Las Vegas! My ideal vacation would be a quilting retreat though!

Tina said...

Thank You For A Chance At Your Wonderful Giveaway! We Go To The Parks Near Our Home And Walk By The Water With Our Grandsons.

Karen said...

Since we live in the hot, sultry South, we love to travel to the Mountains in summer.....North Carolina, Colorado, Wyoming, so we can fly fish, hike, canoe, and I can explore quilt shops and shop for other things. I try to take a book along to read since I rarely have reading time now. We try to take our entire family along, with our oldest granddaughter learning to ride a horse this past summer.

Karen McCormick said...

For a vacation we are leaving for Sedona, AZ. Never been there and this is 1st vaca.

We visit my son and his family in Virginia.

Karen said...

We love to spend our time at our ranch. I take my little hexis and hand sew them. There is no electricity there for my machine so I use the extra time getting as many done as possible! (kiku_75@hotmail.com)

Amy Caldwell said...

Who needs a vacation, I'd rather stay home and quilt :)

Elsa said...

I usually almost always visit family. It's my favorite place to do. They mostly live in Southern California ~ so we go to the beach a lot!

Kris said...

Summer is usually garden work and canning. I don't stray too far from home when it is super hot. It also means state and county fair. Love that cuz there are always quilts to make and go see.

Teatime Creations said...

Head down to Cape Breton.

wobblybobbin said...

We rent a cabin in the ozarks and cram as much family in as can fit! Swimming and canoeing for a couple days is always such a nice getaway!

PunkinPatch said...

Summer vacation is spent at our little local lake "beach" as this is my youngest son's favorite activity. Perhaps a trip to visit my oldest at Camp Lejuene will happen this summer, fingers crossed!!

Caroline said...

Going to Wiltshire, England, and besides going walking and exploring bookshops, I will take a nice quilting project of course.

Anonymous said...

Ah, I travel SOO much for my non-quilting life that summer vacation is 2 blissful weeks at home with my sweetie and our furry kids (and my studio!). Many thanks for the lovely giveaway!!

Deanna said...

Well, summertime is "fair time" and we volunteer at the County Fair and Home-Owned carnival almost every night for an entire month. Makes for a long summer.

Willa said...

Well, I think I will just tell everyone to pretend that I am not here. Don't talk to me. Don't ask me to run the washing machine or dishwasher. Look the other way.

Then I will sit down at the sewing machine and SEW! Until I am tired of sewing!

Pam Wyka said...

This summer we will be spending a week at a lake house in SC with all my husbands family - and it will be a blast!!

fenna said...

Sukochi Lee said...

My favorite vacation, if I coul afford to go on vacation would be to Panama City Beach, FL. We went there every simmer when I was growing up.

Debbie Collins said...

I live in Oklahoma where summers are extremely HOT, so by August we are ready for some cooler weather, for that reason we usually go to the Mountains of New Mexico or Colorado

pammmywooo said...

I spend time with my family during the summer months.

Connie said...

Beautiful fabrics and what a great giveaway! We usually get in a little fishing and of course visit quilt shops!

Matt and Robyn Conners said...

It is an unwritten rule that all members of my husband's family meet at his uncle's cabin in Minnesota. It is an awesome gathering of everyone from the west coast, east coast and states in between. It is a week of just eating and fishing, eating and fishing, and eating and fishing! :-) We have so much fun!

Alicia said...

Try not to melt!

Roseanne Siskonen said...

I am retiring this summer, so many more plans for sewing. Finally will have the time to work on substantial projects, as I am new to quilting.

Sleepy Cat Hollow said...

I haven't had a real summer vacation in years…probably won't this year either with an out of work husband with no unemployment insurance.

BUT! I DO like to take a Friday or Monday off work and head to San Francisco, or Monterey, or Pacifica to bask in the ocean's glory. :)

Erin said...

Wow gorgeous fabrics and thread! I will help with grandchildren who are in school break! And also since we are in the northeast go to beaches, mountains and visit family in Maine!

Mandy Laseter said...

No budget for vacation, but if there were we would go to Galveston and San Antonio. Texas that is.

Mary D said...

Load up the RV and head out for 40 days or so. We have the Black Hills on our list. Never really know where we will go.

Mary D said...

Load up the RV and head for the Black Hills then wherever we go will be unplanned. We will be traveling a couple of months.

Maureen said...

We haven't gone on vacation in years. But, I'd like to go to Ireland....

Rose Smith said...

We won't be staying away anywhere during the summer, as we don't want to leave our 3 cats (1 of them needs epilepsy medication twice a day). Instead we go for day trips - to the beach, or to big shopping centres etc.

Marti Taylor said...

Utilizing our family membership to the zoo is tops for us. Thanks for the chance!

Anonymous said...

Going to the beach is a must for this girl!

Lynn St. Andrews said...

I go to my parents house. I try to get there a day early so i have some alone time with them. My daughter and grand kids also come, a day behind me. At least i get the bed for 1 night, lol.

The Rambling Quilter said...

We just rented a house by the lake. Hubby packs golf clubs, I pack sewing machine!!

Paula @ Sewy Stuff said...

My "big" vacation every year is actually in April. A group of friends from all over the US (and sometimes our Ireland and Australia friends get to come) get together in Nashville for a week of music, food, shopping laughter, and good times.

legato1958 said...

I travel for part of vacation to visit my mother and sister. Then my hubby and I go stay at a resort somewhere... I am not picky! As long as I don't have to make dinner and do the dishes! lol

Regina said...

Due to work schedules, we don't get to travel much in the summer. Weekends are spent tending our huge vegetable and flower gardens or on local trips, and we are trying to get some camping trips scheduled for this summer.

Abbie @ Rosewill Arts said...

We always go to Lake Michigan and camp with my in-laws. It is a great break away to soak up the sun, sand and spend unforgettable time together as a family.

Cindy P said...

In the summer I read, garden and sew...this winter has been awful, and I cannot wait for summer !

Katrom said...

We don't vacation in the summer because that is when my husbands business is the busiest. We vacation in the fall and go to Mexico.

BCT said...

I love to veg out at my summer log cabin on Squam Lake, Center Harbor, NH. Of course, I love to bring my sewing machine along with me!!!

Rita Sussman said...

Our summers are splendid here. We enjoy the outdoors with fishing, hiking, soaking up the sun, & having wonderful fresh vegetables & fruit. All with our family and friends.
Thank you for the great giveaway.

Heather said...

On summer vacation we usually visit Disneyland for a couple of days. Other than that, swimming for the kids & work for me.

We usually head back to Las Vegas to visit relatives. We don't hit the casinos or the strip but I will admit I visit all the quilt shops too.

Vicki said...

Lots of local day trips for us.

Freddie said...

I will most likely be visiting the in laws in the Netherlands. If not then I would like to take the kids to the coast. They love playing in sand and waves.

Nancy said...

On summer vacations I get away from the house and relax in the outdoors near a lake or river with books to read and sketchbook for ideas.

tlunsford said...

My husband and I will be celebrating our 25th anniversary this July so we are going to take a week vacation at a resort. After no vacation for years and years, we are SO excited! Thanks for the giveaway!

Patricia said...

My husband & I are both retired so we can vacation any time we want. Because we live in South Texas & it gets REALLY HOT there, we like to try & go to somewhere a little cooler, but we love our home so don't stay away for long!

Monique Belmer said...

We garden all summer long but we spend out actual vaacation time in NY mining for Herkimer Quartz. Lots of work, great de-stresser and a fun time!

I will just be glad to sit on my deck and enjoy the sunshine!!

Beautiful fabrics and thread!!

Candy Mak said...

I haven't had a day off since I started having kids. My oldest is almost 6, so wherever I go it's got to be kid friendly. My SIL booked me. Suite at Las Vegas during the week of July 4th. So we are looking forward to that.

Margy Mc said...

Spending this summer settling into a new home. But I would STILL have time to quilt. Thanks for the chance

We enjoy the nature! My husband and I enjoy hiking (i enjoy it more when it's an easy hike, haha) and we would go camping in the summer.

JessicaK said...

My favorite part of summer is trying out new recipes for summer fruits and veggies and trying them out for our summer parties :)

Pamela Atkins said...

Last year our family, my kids-grandkids-greatgrandkids, rented a huse on the beach ad spent a week there. We are from the midwest and really had a great time! This year we will probably go to our lake cabin a lot.

corsetkitten (aka Erica) said...

On summer vacation I 1) work *sigh* and 2)Garden and 3) try to get some sewing done when it's sunny!

Anonymous said...

Explore close to home this summer. Looking forward to it. Probably do some fishing.

minka louise said...

The past 3 years we have gone to Cancun. This year we are staying closer to home and visiting Charleston. This is such a huge country with so many wonderful locations. My list of places to visit in the US is endless. Of course, each place we visit will include quilt shops. My husband loves them almost as much as I do. A road trip to Missouri Star Quilt Company is quite high on our list of places to go.

We take the boys camping and visit family.

Terri van Gulik said...

We usually rent a cottage somewhere for a week. Lake George, or PEI.

Aureas Kitchen said...

Thanks

Thank you.

We don't usually do a summer vacation outside of visiting my family in MN, but last summer I went to Disneyworld with my mom & will be going back with her family in 2016.

Pre said...

Love this dear stella line! I generally don't have a vacation in the summer, but when I can get a day off I like to explore a part of the city I haven't seen before, or take a trip down the shore.

*Cornelia* said...

such a wonderful give-away I have never used Aurifil before

and for summer vacation, we always visit my parents, they live 3 hours away and daniels parents 9 hours, so we dont see them quite often

but what I really would love to do is, a vacation at the beach

Dorfymid said...

We will be visiting our son and Lovely DIL in Key West..I would so like to win those lovely fabrics and threads..

Geri said...

I usually don't get a summer vacation. Senior citizen with budget. I do plant a big garden and take care of that. Always have lawn and flowers to take care of. I do sew in the evenings and have taught myself how to quilt. Have 11 grandchildren, 4 grt grandchildren and twins ggc to be born in June so will be busy with them too. Hope I can win. Thanks

Mama said...

I stay home and enjoy the beauty of my surroundings (the Finger Lakes area in Central New York). The middle two weeks of the summer I am at Quilting By The Lake.

This summer I plan on spending time outside. I am ready for sunny dry days.

GO STARS! said...

My husband and I usually take a vacation - last year Alaska, years before that San Diego, Toronto/Niagara Falls, and Hawaii. Haven't decided yet on this year's destination.
We spend a lot of time outdoors and in the yard in the evenings. We live in Texas so it's too hot in the middle of the day.

Gene Black said...

I have several things that I do depending on finances. We sometimes go to the beach (South Alabama/Florida Panhandle) or we take a nice long trip to the Yucatan in Mexico. Mainly we get away from the typical life we live.

Susan Miller said...

I work from home, and I live on a lake....so I guess you could say everyday is a vacation for me.

Jen Beatty said...

We go camping, if you can call it that, we leave a park model trailer at a park about 40 minutes from home & enjoy time w/the extened family who camp at the same location! Thanks for the opportunity!

Lyn Ja said...

Head to the beach and relax (and sew) !!!!

Beth said...

Spend lots of time at the lake and this year a trip to the Smoky mountains!

Deborah said...

Love to go to Mackinac Island in Michigan in the summer. No vehicles, except Emergency vehicles on the Island. Just horses, bikes, etc. Is so pretty in the summer, don't want to go in the winter, though. LOL!

Ellen said...

This year we will go to New Orleans to see our new grandson.

Lin said...

I'm very lucky in that I live in a city that has different music festivals running for the entire summer as well as lots of recreational opportunities (beaches, bike paths, hiking, etc.) and cultural events. We'll be staying close to home this year and taking in those things as well as just relaxing. Next year will be a different story with a trip to Ireland planned.

Susan said...

We live in Florida near the ocean, so in the summer, we hosts lots of friends and family. It's a lovely chaos with towels always in the dryer and sand in the showers. We love to take a break from the heat and head for the mountains of North Carolina.

Crazyarnp said...

Visit the 2 grandchildren. The oldest loves to help me quilt!

KittyKwilter said...

I like to travel on vacation, either to a national park or to a country I've not visited. I also spend time in the garden While travelling, I visit some fabric or quilt stores if I can.

Audrey Matlock said...

Summer is barbecues, pool time, beach time, hiking, biking, and anything outside! This year it also means a possible trip to Canada!

Nancy said...

We have no summer plans but we camp every year for a weekend in the spring.

Catskill Quilter said...

Summer is my best time to sew, because I live in Florida, where it is too hot most days to be outside.

jeifner said...

I don't really get a summer vacation. But when summer comes I love being able to ride my bike outside almost every day.

Pat Seaman said...

This year I'll be spending time with my sister who just recently had a stroke. I'm happy to give up every day of my vacation to spend with her!!!

Carry Hers By Natalie said...

Hi. every summer we find a cottage somewhere and spend a week with extended family.

Susan Clark said...

Summer vacation means I can enjoy walks around my neighborhood while listening to children playing. Its warm enough I can go out & putter around the yard - and when it gets too warm I go back inside and either work on a quilt or go thru books & magazines and plan my next one(s).

We live in Tasmania, Australia, so summer for us is catching up with all our family, spending time with friends and making the most of our summer crops by freezing and storing.

maggi said...

Having lived most of my life on a farm, summer vacation is a true dream! But, the best and most favorite summer vacations were spent with an amazing group of ladies from my church. I was part of a handbell choir and we loved to go on summer trips to ring bells and have fun adventures!

Cynthia said...

I go fishing and walking through cemeteries as I travel across the country. I also visit every quilt shop I see along the way! I've met the most fabulous people that way. I take pictures of gravestones and the sights I see. I even went on a shop hop a couple of times when I was up in Washington state visiting my family! It was awesome!!!

Since I'm a retired teacher, every day is summer vacation. I quilt on all of them. I especially love handquilting!

On Summer vacation I try to hit the beach with my daughter as often as possible. Oddly enough us coastal California folks don't always go the beach... Great giveaway.

Thank you for such a nice giveaway! Every day in Southern California is summer, just some days are cooler than others, so probably won't be doing anything special.

I like to spend summers at a near-by lake, but the last two years we've had to stay home. :( Bummer. I was hoping this year could be different, but I already see medical expenses eating up the vacation funds again. I'll be at the lake in my dreams, anyhow.

I usually go fishing, and basically relax up in our lakes areas in Northern Minnesota!! Fun in the piney sun!!
