Turning over a new leaf


Don’t worry! No whining today. In the interest of making amends for the recent spate of whining, I’m having a little giveaway. My current fabric crush is Carla Miller’s Shine fabric. Any difficulty I’ve had in trying to plan a project with it is just that I love all of the colors and kept changing my mind. Well, I’m now making a Carpenter’s Star in the plum colorway.

I’d like to share the Shine love with a little pack of quarter yards of six fabrics with the feature fabrics from the pink colorway.


Oooh, ahhhh, pretty. Just leave a comment-the whinier the better-by 11:59 pm EST on Monday, November 12, 2007, and I’ll draw a winner for this cheer-inducing pack of fabric.

    A contest- how fun! We must be on the same page- I started a contest today too! This fabric is so fun- I think the carpenter star will be great out of it! I made that pattern out of Freshcut a while back, and I love it! No whining from me today, because I finished a new design and it’s shop hop (hooray!) but I’m sure my kids could give you a double dose after we traipse around every quilt store in Vegas this afternoon! 🙂

    Sorry – no whining here – just a comment to say – how beauitful – and how generous!

  3. WOW! I love your taste in fabric! I’m going whine because you have it and I don’t…LOL

    With friendship,

  4. I’m in! You know I love you best . . . . even though I think I caught the whine bug from you yesterday. ACHOOOOO—why can’t these kids ever clean up after themselves?!!!

  5. I never win anything. I had five tickets for this gorgeous quilt from a quilt shop in Davison and I sat by my telephone on Halloween and IT DID NOT RING. Is that whiny enough?

    I just put up photos of my recent vintage acquisitions in case you are interested. I am so fortunate to be part of an antique shop.

    By the way what are blogs for if not to whine? We all know our families are tired of listening to us.

    I am in a lot of pain today after spending the past 2 days at a quilt show in Chicago; cannot do anything but sit at home. It wasn’t easy coz I have a collapsed lumbar spine. How is that for whining?

    Love the fabric… I’m a new reader too… but you know I think I’ve got it! I was so busy yesterday (on my birthday) that I didn’t get to sew!!!! And I forgot to open my birthday present from my parents!!!!! How pathetic is that? Dishes to do, I had to babysit (although it was for my grandson…. can’t complain too much there!) and I pretty much spent the rest of the day all by myself!

    Sorry I can’t offer up a whine right now (life’s too short) but I am sure I could could come up with something to get my hands on that gorgeous fabric!!

    The fabric is terribly inspirational and yummy, but I don’t have any like it…and would love to create something fun and cheery with it! Happy Whiny Day!

    A world without whining is a world I don’t want to live in!
