Giveaway -- now with photos!



Good morning / afternoon / good evening and good night! Well, I have got my camera back, and so please excuse the ridiculously extensive descriptions now. Feel free to leave comments and wins some cute fabric, everyone.

Sorry, International Fabric Addicts, but it is still Tuesday night here and my husband seems to have scampered off with my camera, or my toddler has hidden it somewhere, so I don't have any photos of my giveaway fabric. I shall endevour to describe it to you, and you may leave a comment if you think you might like it. Otherwise, come back tomorrow at about 7 am CST (like, just before you go to bed) and I should have photos posted. Due to these technical difficulties, I will leave this open until Thursday morning my time.

I am giving away two bundles of fabric. Let me know if you are just entering for one, or for either.

Bundle one:


Three fat quarters of cute, retro kids and toys from the Look and Learn collection by American Jane. One is a border print with rulers and cute kids playing on a green background. The second is green with retro toys (wagons, blocks, cute dolls, etc) and red and yellow flowers. The third is blue with cute kids playing with retro toys.

Bundle two:


Twelve fat quarters, yep, three whole yards (bought online from the US as part of a fat quaters club) of Christmas Toile from Moda. These range from navy blue down to a light blue toile-y colour.

Eight of them depict scenes of santa riding in sledges, decorated Christmas trees and winter scenes, angels, etc. Four are more blender-y -- swirls or dots with shadowy angels. I am sure you can picture them perfectly.

All right, you can leave your comments here, if you like. Hopefully my camera will show up in the morning. Off to try to win all your free fabric (seriously, are we really destashing here or just having fun fooling ourselves?)

Well, we are giving away and only hoping to win something back, so perhaps we aren't really kidding ourselves (I don't sound convinced do I?)
Both your giveaways sound fabulous, but I'm particularly partial to the Christmas Toile, it sounds delightful. Can't wait to see the pictures when your camera turns up!
I'm giving away too, so please take a look and enter if you like what you see. :-)
