Cool giveaways Hot Summer days!!

There's a couple of giveaways going on that I want to tell you about. Kerry has one here. She plans to have several so you better sign on to follow! If you crazy quilt she has lots of great tutorials. Such inspiration. Then Pat is having a giveaway here She often shares vintage images and has a separate blog for her crazy quilting. Part of her giveaway is silk ribbon which she is a master at using! I have purchased some of her ribbon and it is lovely stuff. Lastly I am giving away some fluffy yarn. I find these orphan skeins at yard sales and the thrift store. Here we have red and lime green feathery type stuff. And a blue and green eyelash yarn. The next photo shows black eyelash, white feathery, a black and white boucle (?) and a gray and black eyelash. The third photo highlights 2 of the three browns. The 2 color is "normal" yarn with a touch of glitter. The tan is similar to the feathery stuff but with a permanent curl! This photo shows the purple eyelash in good color. Can you pick out the blue suede like yarn in the blue green eyelash? Sorry I didn't get it separated!! I have a brown in the suede stuff, also. Lastly I have a length of ribbon with butterflies and beads. Another feathery type yarn. This one counts (3) because it is variegated. Lime, orange and pink and then it repeats. About 4 yards in each color. I will cut it by color or leave it if you select these as your choice. I use these to make twisted rope or couch them down on a bit of crazy quilting. A ball will last me a long time so I thought I'd share some with you. There's 15 colors of yarn and a length of ribbon with dangling butterflies and beads. To be in the drawing you must comment on this post. There will be 4 names drawn. First one gets your choice of 4 colors. Drawing ends on June 30. Names announced by July4th.

Hi Norma, Love the yarns and butterflies. Do you have pictures of how you use the "fluffy stuff"? Would love to learn how it is used.

Make sure you hold on to some of all of this for the advanced CQ class at Stitchmap, Ruby. I love the idea of the fluffy giveaway and appreciate the opportunity to be one of your 4 winners. It will be hard to choose if you should pick my name.

Hugs, Shari

Ruby, these are really wild. I obviously don't spend enough time at yard sales and thrift stores, because I never see stuff like this. Thank you so much for sharing.
