My First Giveaway! Happy Spring!

Linda Beth

Part of the reorganizing and cleaning frenzy is the purge (or at least it should be, though I often have to remind myself of that separately!). When I went through my sewing studio the other week, I didn't actually purge anything (okay, maybe a paper template or sketch here and there), but I found quite a few lovely things that have been hanging around for a while, things for which I may never find a proper use, so perhaps they should go to someone who can appreciate and use them.

And it may sound trite, but it does seem that "spring cleaning" is one of my usual rituals. Those who know me in person can attest to the fact that I am not the neatest of people. I surround myself with stuff, and am one of those who will fill up any horizontal surface available (and sadly, sometimes this includes the floor!). Therefore, it is crucial that I hit an overload point and dedicate some serious energy to straightening things up after the winter months of clutter!

So, it being March and with St. Patrick's Day around the corner, plus all of the fun photos I've been seeing of folks participating in the Sew Out Loud project and other text-based sewing projects, I thought I would start with this "Authentic" jelly roll from Sweetwater.

Just leave a comment below - and I would love it if you would share one of your spring rituals as well. The giveaway will be open until the end of the day Saturday March 17th (midnight Pacific Daylight Time). I'll announce the winner on Monday March 19th. I look forward to hearing what y'all have to say!!

Happy spring from Portland, Oregon!

THE COMMENT THREAD IS NO LONGER OPEN FOR THE DRAWING. DRAWING WILL OCCUR SOME TIME SUNDAY MARCH 18TH WITH THE HELP OF RANDOM.ORG (once I figure it all out!) AND WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED AND CONTACTED BY MONDAY MARCH 19TH. GOOD LUCK AND THANK YOU ALL FOR PARTICIPATING!
(And please remember, if you are a no-reply blogger, check back here on Monday for the announcement)
