Lost Treasures

CONTEST NOW CLOSED!
Before I decided to move my sewing room I'd been working on a few projects. Wanna see a sneak peak? I thought you might. It's a good thing I took these pictures before the move- I don't even know where this stuff is anymore! ;o)


A little while ago I got this crazy urge to applique. This is not a future COL pattern- y'all would kill me. But I do think it's going to turn out cool. If you happen to get a certain home decor magazine you may recognize the leafy shape a little. ;o) I show it off when I get it FINISHED!
I can't even stand it- this fabric is SO BEAUTIFUL! I mean, it's 3 Sister's, so why wouldn't it be. But just wait 'til you see 'Martinique' in the flesh/fabric. Oh, it melts me. ;o) I absolutely LOVE the project I'm making but haven't decided if it's another pattern or not. It's more traditional than COL patterns usually are- but I might throw this one in there just to mix it up a bit.



I've also been sewing with a little of this..


And a little of that!

But that's all I can show you for now.


So, how about a giveaway!?
While I was moving all of my STUFF down the hall I came across
14 Fat Quarters of 'Authentic' by Sweetwater for Moda
AND
A Layer Cake of 'Nature's Notebook' by April Cornell for Moda.
Do YOU want it!?
Well, leave me a comment telling me what you wish Santa would bring you for Christmas and on Monday morning sometime I'll pick the winner's.
So far I have 2 prizes shown- but if I find more 'treasures' then I'll pick more winners!
GOOD LUCK!

I've asked Santa for a Pink Flannel Shirt.

Tami Fulton said...

Hmmmmmmmmm I'm thinking I want a stack of Authentic Fat Quarters for Christmas! :)

arlette said...

Dang I wasn't first, lol. Well I'd like Santa to bring me fabrics, fabrics and fabrics, oh quilting books as well... I know the quilting bug bite me real hard... We don't have enough quilting supplies here and I just hope he comes to me all the way from the North Pole!

pklaw said...

I asked Santa for some red leather gloves! Ohhh...those treasures look very interesting - would love to win!

Priscilla said...

I would like Santa to bring me a new cutting mat because mine is warped from the sun - but I think he'll bring me new curtains instead because we need those more.....lol

The Wheeler 5 said...

i love the surprise of gifts in general. it fun to see what other people think you want/need. and then realizing they sometimes are right.

Shannon said...

Humm haven't really had any time to give it any thought. I'll take anything quilt or sewing related though. I can't wait to see your finished projects.

imquilternity said...

I never really want anything for Christmas as I enjoy the "giving" part so much more. I guess you could call that my "gift."

I love the Authentic fabrics...they're wonderful, aren't they? How can you possibly bear to part with them>

Laura said...

oh my, I would pretty much die for that fat quarter stack of authentic! I asked Santa for some new sewing scissors!

Kat said...

Wow, I would love to have either of those! I want Santa to bring me a walking foot for my sewing machine. On a less literal note, if Santa could help me find a warm, loving home for a certain sweet stray kitty I've been feeding I'd appreciate it and I know he would too.

Barb said...

I know I just won a giveaway with you...which was amazing but I could not just come and not comment. I love what you are working on...and all of this and all of that.....I truly love your blog and for Christmas all I want is to see my boys....

urbanoceanix said...

I have asked santa for a fold away sewing table as sitting on the floor sewing is really starting to ache. Those fabrics are gorgeous, I'd love either. Thanks so much for the chance to win.

Kathie said...

I asked Santa for a new pair of good scissors and the letter of acceptance into the college my DD wants to go too...it would make for a very happy Christmas around here! Of course fabric is always welcomed too!
wishing you a wonderful Holiday.
Kathie

jlk said...

I have asked for a Cricut. I have dropped many a hint to Santa, but my chances are slim, I'm afraid!

Sipiweske Quilts said...

What a wonderful giveaway - thank you! I always wish for more time, but I know that can never happen, so fabric is my next most wished for item on my Christmas list. - Marlene

Deb said...

I asked for a white picket fence around my flower garden for my birthday this summer...it hasn't happened yet so i'm putting it on my Christmas wish list. Actually, I got a new Bernina earlier this year so I don't need another thing! Would love to win those fat quarters.

Chere said...

I asked Santa for a healthy baby grandson and fat quarters to make him a great quilt!

Amyjr88 said...

I have asked Santa for one selfish gift and one not so selfish gift. My selfish gift is a new sewing machine. About to smash mine into tiny bitsy pieces! Could be user error but we'll blame the machine. My not so selfish gift is I have asked Santa (whith a little help from Jesus) to Please remove a brain tumor for lil Kate Mcrae. Her & her family are in my prayers nightly and they could really use some more.

angela said...

I don't know what got into me, but I'd love a telescope. My entire family would enjoy it! Oh, and it's the only thing not sewing related on my list. LOL!!!

Mandy said...

I really want a go-cutter but I think I'm settling on a new olfa lol!

I'd love to have something new to cut into too!!!

Laura said...

I'd really like a new sewing machine but would settle for a new motor for my old singer touch n sew. And I'd really like to get those Authentic fat quarters because I'm currently working on a quilt with that collection. I can't get enough of it.

onlymehere said...

I'm wishing for a time machine from Santa. Just a little time machine that will take me two years into the future when my boy will be home from his mission for our church (he leaves in 5 days). If I won some fat quarters or layer cakes it would make the time go faster in case I've been too naughty for a Santa visit and a time machine, lol! Cindy

Tam said...

I would like Santa to bring books! Surprises are great also!

Kati said...

I want Santa to bring me an unlimited supply of really great fabric.

Shells said...

I'd like santa to send me a new Bernina sewing machine!

Judy said...

All I want for Christmas is to have my family gathered around me. I so much enjoy having all of my children here for the holidays.

Ellen said...

I asked Santa for some sewing books- but a stack of Fat quarters would be great.

~melissa p. said...

I would love peace of mind weather we should move or not. We have only lived here for 2 years and the thought of moving again is just scary. On a lighter note, I would love lots and lots of fabric to play with, that would be fun!!
Thanks for sharing your fabric. I hope I can add it to my small stash.

Nanabarb said...

Those pics are such a tease! Dear Santa, I really need a new robe. I'd like it to be snuggly and warm. If you don't have any already made, you can just send a bunch of pink chenille fabric instead. Thanks, Barby ;o)

amber said...

I want santa to bring me a new sewing machine, fabric and quilting tools. I would LOVE to win

rainylakechick said...

I am asking Santa for more vacation time so I can quilt!! :)

Kira said...

All I want for Christmas is my tooth front teeth. Fits in the airplane.

Natalia said...

I can't wait to see what the finished product is from that Authentic material, it looks darling!

aka Dragonfly Photography said...

I would LOVE fabric so I can work on my many mentally planned projects :) I have LOTS of time with my honey deployed :) :) :)

Gui said...

Oh...pick me, pick me. I wish Santa would bring me a serger. I don't have one and it would be nice with making clothes for Janie. PICK ME!!!

craft-crazed said...

I would like santa to sign me up for an applique class.. and maybe an imbroidary class.. Im new to the quilting scene and am trying to take in as much as I can!

Bree's place. said...

hmm..a tough one, most of all, I would love santa to leave my husband's parents here for the week, lol. really! They're in Nevada, we're in Calgary, my kids are 2 and 4 this week and don't know them. That would mean the most to me..other than that- time alone! time to sew, knit, relax..and before 11pm please~!

sewcurious said...

you know what I want? Lots and lots of pretty fabric. Wanna help me out with that? =)

andsewon said...

I really do love for Santa to surprise me!!More fun then knowing you will get something off a list, or for me anyway...;-)
I still have more work to do on my sewing room.
Love those fabbies!!
Lola

Lisa D. said...

I would love the chance to win one of your wonderful prizes! I Santa to bring me a sparkly ring for Christmas, but I don't think he will - bah humbug.

kersten said...

For Christmas I want more time in my day... Since that isn't likely I will ask for a new rotary cutter.
Or maybe that bundle of Authentic fat quarters. YUM!
Do we get to see pics of your new work space?

TJ said...

Well, if I win Santa will bring me this fabric. But what I asked for is pinking shears.

Amy said...

A giveaway sounds great! I would like for Santa to bring me a laptop. He didn't cringe when I told him so I'm thinking I got a 50/50 shot.

Brandie said...

I wish Santa would bring me Rouenneries or Astor Manor, from Moda. I'm loving this line. Now that I said it, it will come true, Right?

debi said...

I'd truly love a housekeeper to clean up around me!!!! So that I can just sew all day - I'll have to anyway if I want to get my Grandson's first quilt finished for XMAS!!!

LymeRicky said...

I've actually been hoping Santa would bring me Nature's Notebook fabric -- I'm in love with it!

CJ said...

Santa could bring me charm packs,jelly rolls and fat quarters! I did put on my list a Kona Color Chart, a Mini Iron and attachments and more bobbins!

nrnoodle said...

I do not want much from Santa this year. I have a great family and we are together and that is what is important to me. We are an Army family so we have spent almost as many Christmases apart as we have together. I f I could be crazy and ask for anything tangible I would love to have some great new cookbooks to make my family some tasty treats. Ohh and a gift card for the commissary so I could buy the ingredients.

Beverly said...

I really wish Santa would bring me some of the Figgy Pudding line or the Authentic Line ... really - not because that's one of the giveaways! My LQS was having a 25% sale today, but didn't have either line :( Please, Santa ... I've been good! :)

Kim said...

Love the fabric! I asked for a new iron, I am in desperate need due to an applique accident. Goo Gone can only clean stick off an iron so well. :)

Christine said...

I've asked for The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl... and it's on the way (along with what we ordered for my husband, we wanted to take advantage of free shipping!)
Some fabric would be nice as well of course!

rachel griffith said...

oh my goodness!!!
those authentic fat quarters are SO calling my name.

what i really want for christmas is...
tickets to ireland.
that's not too much to ask, right???
lol.

bingo~bonnie said...

I've asked Santa for 6 days of ME time! no kids, not a single phone call asking how much longer until you are back? Just 1 day every 2 months that I can do as I wish - if I want to go to walmart and be there for 3 hours I can... or go to LQS for a class... or even stay at home alone only me in the house for a minimum of 4 hours. Hey hubby can take the kids to the park and out to lunch right???

well, here's to hoping that Santa was really listening to me when I pitched my idea to him.... and if you couldn't tell, I'm a stay-at-home mom of a 5 year old and 2 year old twins - so I REALLY think I deserve this don't you? :P

Love from Texas! ~bonnie

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Oh yes, for Christmas; my son-in-law is currently interviewing at five different hospitals. For Christmas I would like him and my only daughter to choose a location that is closer than the 1500 miles from us that they are now. I miss her so much.
Thanks for having this sweet give away!

Codi said...

This year I want lots of fun fabric! Really I don't care, but some fabric would be so dang fun! I haven't been too crafty lately, but that'll change within the next week or so, my baby is about to turn ONE!!

Mary said...

Oh, I want Santa to bring me the most precious gift of all, more time. Wouldn't that be wonderful especially at this time of year.

Kristi said...

I love authentic!! I have the jelly roll, but would LOVE a fat quarter set! Great giveaway! :)

Pokey said...

Thank you for sharing, and these look like fun! For Christmas, I want a jelly roll or two, and time to sew it up into fun creativity!

SheilaC said...

I love those fabrics, can I have THEM for Christmas?? ;-)

I am asking Santa for a netbook....

Thank you for the great giveaway!!

Laura said...

I love all things Authentic! They are such a great company - full of fun surprises. All I want for Christmas from Santa is my kids at home this year. However one will be in Texas with new wife and in-laws. But the other 4 will be here his year with lots of grandkids.
Laura T

Evelyn said...

If Santa could read my mind, he'd bring me an extension table for my sewing machine. :-) But I think I'll just have to save my pennies and buy one myself. Lovely giveaway - I'd love those Authentic FQs!

RazakFamily said...

I asked Santa for a new washer/dryer...
I also asked for unlimited monies for the fabric store...

I think I'll get the washer/dryer :) :) :)

Darlene B said...

I really don't need more "things." But a gift certificate to a quilt store so I can choose a "little of this" and a "touch of that" would certainly be appreciated! dsb448@att.net

canngil said...

I would sure like to have a clean house, but Santa doesn't vacuum, or do laundry except his own stuff for work...but a packet of wonderful fabric would sure bring a smile to my face! Please pick me!!

James said...

WOW! What a generous Giveaway!
I want Santa to bring MORE Fat Quarters!

Becky S. said...

I know that it is boring, but I want Santa to bring me a vacuum. My old one is not working anymore, and that is something that I do not want to buy.

bluebird-lyn said...

Love to be in the draw for Lost Treasures....to spend some time with my husband...due to the nature of his work that is not always possible over the Christmas break...Warm Regards Lyn

Shannon R said...

I asked Santa for a peaceful day without fighting kids, but I'll settle for an hour or two. ;)

Goneaussiequilter said...

I would love for Santa to bring me a whole day free to quilt! And not being cheeky, but I've been wanting Authentic fabric as well.

...so we added chickens said...

is it too late?
I am hoping Santa brings me some cool fabrics, the new 100 quilt blocks mag that just came out... and maybe a new charm for my bracelet - but that my be over the top :)

Rapier Family said...

I hope the moving is going good. I cant decide yet really what i want santa to bring. i always have such huge lists of wants :)
We need to get together soon
