Congrats Sharon

Sharon, you were the winner of the Fat Qtrs.  Congratulations.  DS3 said everyone's comments were good and honest.  So we put the names in a hat and out came Sharon's.  I will be in touch with you very soon.
Thanks everyone for playing along.  Not a lot of players, but I thought it was a fun thing to do that I will do this again. Maybe on a significant visitor number - ie 4,000 - my stats show 3,500 or perhaps a significant date on the calendar! I will put my thinking cap on and let you know in a few days what I come up with.  This is a great way to reduce my stash, which is getting too big for the cupboard I am using.

I have tried other means of reducing it but to no avail.  A couple of retreats I went to last year they had Fat Qtr raffles where you take along some of your collection and for each piece you receive a ticket and throughout the retreat at various times they draw a number and the winner gets a bundle of Fat Qtrs - well each time I won a bundle it was more than what I had actually taken along!!! My stash increased instead of being reduced.

I really love all my material but there is a lot which I will never ever use as my tastes and my quilting is going in a different direction than when I first started.  It's all good quality material I don't like seeing it sitting there looking very sad that it is not being used.

Thanks again everyone,

Take care,

Thank you Joy and DS3! I will look forward to introducing some new fabric to the current stash!

If I had spent more time reading blogs in the past week, and less time watching the news about the Qld floods :-( you would have had one more entry in your giveaway! But perhaps it is just as well; I have too much fabric now, and I'm not even a quilter!
It is a great way to reduce your stash - and you can be sure it will be appreciated. I've had a few giveaways of linens and crocheted items on my blog, and the response was very rewarding.
