It's all SEWN up

I hopped on the party bandwagon last night and said I'd give away something good. Being so late I didn't really expect much of a response, but over 40 of you are either insomniacs or live on the other side of the world where my night was already your day.

I thought I'd take a moment and show you what I've put together. A few pieces of fabric. Of course ☺ I've listed the widths on each piece. All, except for the FQ are selvage to selvage wide. I thought these pieces coordinated well and would make a nice little doll quilt, wall quilt or miniature. Or you can add to your stash and do something bigger.

I'm also including this (roughly) 8"x9.5" batik we brought back from Uganda: I occasionally visited the craft village next to the National Theatre in Kampala, looking at baskets, batiks, wooden carvings and other things made by local artisans. The basket ladies (as I called them) sat on the ground making baskets and chattering away. Every vendor had a big smile and a great sales pitch ☺ I just browsed and got to know them throughout the year, and by the end knew what I wanted (and could still afford ☺) and was able to buy quite a bit because of the relationships we had developed. The batiks were a no brainer since they packed flat and I absolutely loved them.

You can enter by leaving a comment on this post or the previous one from last night. Right up until midnight GMT. I'll pick the lucky winner out of a hat tomorrow. Make sure you leave a way for me to contact you. It would just be too sad if you won and I had no way of letting you know.

I want a batik!!!! You could send one back with the relatives in December (hint, hint)
(Don't need the fabric, because I wouldn't have time to do anything with it, but the batik I could frame and hang in the RV)

Good luck to all the wonderful sewing population out there, one of whom I am not!

Loved the batik, I used to do them in high school and had great fun with it!!!!

I love to comment and say Hi every time whether there's a giveaway or not. Everything you display is beautiful, and how how you lay it out, too.
You asked for prayer requests:
I still have paperwork to do to finish up the Bilingual Specialist job, and tomorrow I leave to work a week as Advanced Placement Spanish reader. A lot to do!
