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

Love that thread!! I have never had a vacation..After my divorce I had to work 2 jobs and raise 3 girls. There was never time for vacations or money. Now that I am retired I just stay home and sew which I love to do. bpfrimmer@yahoo.com

we have a trailer in a trailer park in the country, and spend as much of the summer as we can there. It's nice getting out of the city as I live in Montreal Quebec.

Angela said...

I love hosting a sewing camp for my. Granddaughters.

ruthshelton10@att.net said...

Unfortunately, during the summer I am usually homebound to the air condition due to physical needs. But, I do have more sewing time so that is a plus. :)

Deb B. said...

Great giveaway...I love summer to go to the beaches & go boating.

We generally spend a lot of time at the cabin :)

June Robertson said...

I love to spend vacations with family or friends, relaxing, eating great food, going for long walks and having a small hand-sewing project to work on when time permits - such a lovely change from sewing on my machine which is what I usually do at home.

linynp said...

Well until I graduate (fingers crossed 2015) it's class time. After quality famiy time with place tbd :)

Salley said...

This summer we took a local vacation...just the hubby and I...as finally, the kids are all old enough to have their own plans. Bliss!
Thanks for the de-stash giveaway...looks lovely.

I hope to be riding my horse as well and sending some time designing and quilting.

Cheri, the Quilting Nanny said...

"summer vacation" never meant anything to me other than "where in the world am I going to find daycare that I can afford...and why can't they have school year round?" as I had to work and my 2 kids were home alone often....and I worried and called them all the time! But what it did mean was my kids had a break from their "grind" and could sleep late and stay up late and have fun for a few months! I love those prints/colors, by the way!

c said...

We rarely ever get one 3 in 35 yrs, but we always go to Port Aransas,TX. 300 miles away, our honeymoon was there and we love it there. Wish we had a home, I found a quilt shop on the island last year, but she was closing-so sad. THANK YOU

We usually head to a cabin in Colorado. Time for R&R.

We plan to take some short day trips to visit some of the beautiful spots in our home state.

Amelia Richardt said...

Summer vacation means so many different things to me. Whether it's my toes in the sand, camping by the fire light, flying through the air on a roller coaster, or simply lying in a hammock - I don't care as long as I am spending time with my loved ones and making memories.

KT said...

Hmm I have a soon to be 3 yr old and another one due this simmer. I think I will be trying to get as much sleep this summer vacation as I possibly can.

Autumn P. said...

I work in my garden. In September it's still summer here in the PNW and that's our best time to go on a good long camping trip.

Purl Buttons said...

To us, summer vacation means no school, since we were both teachers. Now, every day is summer vacation! So, I guess that means read, sew, knit, make baskets.

PT in SC said...

Would love to go the mountains where it is cool!

Peggy said...

Our summer vacations are usually spent with family in Virginia.
Thanks,

Teri Seal said...

I started quilting!

We're currently stationed in Europe so we're trying to take advantage of that :)
I'm thinking we'll probably take at least two short vacations - Lisbon and Milan this year :)

Cheryl Mills said...

Golf! I'm retired and live on a golf course so my summer vacation is already planned.

Denise said...

Well, we usually go to historical areas for vacation. We both love that, but I always have mapped out every quilt shop in the area, in every town we plan to stop in. I have found many wonderful things by doing this...and I meet so many wonderful people. There is an added bonus....my husband does not mind me doing this! He loves watching me create things!

Anonymous said...

We go on a trip each summer usually around the end of July. My husband, two daughters and myself enjoy the time together away from home and our jobs. We have not decided where we will go this year. We are enjoying exploring parts of the United States we have not been to before.

PersimonDreams said...

Loving the giveaway! Wow! Last summer we went to the Outer Banks of North Carolina - BEST VACATION EVER! This summer I think we're going to stay closer to home and explore our home state a bit more (Wisconsin). I think sometimes your own state can be taken for granted and there are amazing things there to discover! We also do a 'Kids in the Garden' program at our apple orchard and my girls take swim lessons, gymnastics, etc - busy, busy! Thanks again!

Roadtrips and sailing.

Cathy44647 said...

During our summer vacation we used to camp all around the state of Ohio but now that our kids are grown, married and have children of their own my DH and I are just now adjusting to that so I'm thinking we are going to enjoy more traveling just the two of us now.

Phyllis said...

Besides visiting our daughter,we love to go to Branson, MO for a few days

Sara said...

That would mean planning ahead....not easy...guess I'll wait and see if I can travel to somewhere.

Sharon Geyer said...

We always wait until the last month before to decide where we are going. Florida is our favorite place but I am thinking Ozarks this year.

Chiska said...

Generally we visit family. This year we're hoping to make it "home" to Alaska to see my parents and brothers. For the "summer vacation" from school we try to explore closer to home at the river, ride bikes, and swim.

ErikaM said...

this summer we are going to drive to Wisconsin from Georgia to visit family and maybe a trip to the beach would be nice!

We don't have any special plans but the kids love to go outside and play in our kiddie pool or sandbox. That's our typical day during the summer!

Try not to melt in the Texas heat. I see a lot of summer dresses in my sewing summer future.

Our vacation for many years has been the national Council of Corvette Clubs' national convention. We have been from Maryland to Colorado and from Florida to Minnesota! So much fun and of course shop hopping! It is fun to see so many different fabrics in other parts of the country!

Ginrei said...

Stay indoors! I burn so badly in the summer, I tend to stay away from the sun, unfortunately... ;)

i love these fabrics...thx for the chance to win!

I usually end up working all summer since that is my busy time and take off in the fall for vacation. This summer/fall I hope to make a return trip to the outer banks with my hubby and his family for the first time in 4 years.

I don't know if I am a non-reply blogger so...

We will go camping several times over the summer - but this summer we will be sending the daughter off to college so happy and sad at the same time!

Tania said...

On summer holidays we spend a lot of time at the local parks, spray parks, and the beach. Our family is all about cheap fun.

Michelle J. said...

We swim and play outside as much as possible!

MickeyT. said...

Summer vacation is time to spend with family - my favorite thing is to visit the (extended) family camp in Maine -- long lazy days by the lake. Unfortunately, i don't make it there every summer.

Karrie S said...

We hang outside around the pool. We usually don't go anywhere special :)

mjb said...

This summer and 2012 was "have a baby". 2013 didn't get a vacation, so I guess that's the only way I get one!

Jennifer B said...

We visit my family for a week in Myrtle Beach, SC. So fun to get together with the cousins!

Susan Stanton said...

I'm looking forward to Maine this summer with a few side trips into Canada. Love the weather there in August and September.

Lena Yakim said...

Hope to spend this summer holidays by the sea with my husband and kids.

VickiT said...

As much as I'd love to say we go on fabulous vacations to the ends of the world, nope, we don't. Most years we stick close to home and do day trips. Sometimes we end up staying overnight somewhere if we get a little further from home than originally planned and others we are back home that night. We don't do this as often as we used to, but hopefully this coming summer we can do more of it, or maybe go further away but, we used to hop in the car and make a decision which direction we go after we get near the highway or interstate. Then it's always a surprise where we end up, but whether it's a long drive ending up sightseeing somewhere or just finding a new place to eat, we are together and that's the best part.

We used to do this for our sanity when we first got together because I had 3 teenaged boys and he had 1 himself which we melded into one family. We never told them when we left if we were going away for an hour or overnight to keep them on their toes and give any advance notice so they could plan parties. haha That was only possible because we had cell phones which they could contact us at anytime and us them. It was fun though never knowing where we'd end up.

pippirose said...

I spend the spring and summer in my garden. :o)

Girl Geek said...

I plan to take one class this summer. And to make my first full size quilt. I've no idea what it will look like, but I have time to figure that out!

Donna said...

This summer we are going on a road trip and I will be hand sewing in the car!

Dawn Jones said...

We hang around the house, boring but true! Thanks for the chance to win. I don't think I'm a no-reply but just in case dawnm1993@gmail.com

Nancy Woodworth said...

I don't think we will be going on a vacation this year because of a lot of family commitments this summer, we'll only be doing one and two day mini trips.

Robyn Jones said...

I will be sewing and playing with the grandkids this summer.

barb said...

no plans just to enjoy warm weather for a change. babscorbitt@gmail dot com

Barbe said...

when the kids were smaller we went camping, now i relax on a staycation, much less packing lol

Sally said...

The best thing I do (or don't do, in this case) on my summer "vacation" is not work, since I am a teacher :) This summer we are also planning a trip to Niagara Falls and a short trip to Las Vegas.

Andrea Fuentes Boyer said...

For the past couple years we would float the Clackamas river from noon til sundown, spend the weekend at Rockaway beach, and go crabbing and fishing. But this year we have a little one who just turned 5 months old so we are going to parks and attending sewing classes so we can make him some baby clothes :)

Susan said...

For our summer vacation we like to chill out with no plans - sometimes a drive for a picnic, sometimes doing absolutely nothing.

Benny Sequeira said...

No vacation plans this summer, out of budget.

quilter said...

We did a quilt cruise to Alaska in 2013

As little as possible - a good book, a bottle or two of good wine and a little EPP project!

Charlene McCullough said...

The fabric is beautiful. I would love to be the recipient. On summer vacation I try to allot time for tending flowers and crafting, be it quilting, counted cross stitching, or paper crafting. Just like to keep my hands busy. Thanks for the beautiful giveaway.

We get together with family and do dinners, outings, and camping.
