Sunday Stash: There were tears (and a GIVEAWAY)


Welcome Glitterati!

I'm so honoured to be hosting Sunday Stash for Ms Sparkles this week.  I've decorated the blog header especially for it - what do you think? 

This week I'm sharing my stash of Charley Harper from Birch.  When this arrived in the post, there were tears - I had hayfever at the time and my eyes were streaming but, you know, it could just as well have been because of the fabric too, it's so beautiful.  I have cut into this already and am part way making through a quilt for Pepper-Mae (my youngest).




Most of my Charley Harper stash came from the lovely Lela at Cedar House Fabrics, have you browsed through Lela's fabric lately?  Some lucky person will be able to buy some of that beautiful organic fabric for themselves soon!  As part of my Sunday Stash hostess duties I'm having a giveaway - everyone who leaves a comment here will go in the draw to win a $20 Cedar House Fabrics gift certificate.


To enter the giveaway, leave a comment here letting me know how the weather is in your part of the world.  The giveaway is open to anyone who leaves a comment, regardless of where you live and regardless of what the weather is like in your neck of the woods.  You'll also get an extra entry for linking up to this edition of Sunday Stash.  The giveaway is open until Thursday 5pm (NZ time).

Here's the rules, as decreed by Ms Sparkles:

  2. Hi Sarah. Right now I can hear the birds chirping and the wind whistling around my house. Blue sky's but that wind is bringing a chill factor. It's about 25degrees. (Brisbane, Queensland, Australia)

  5. It is warm here in Boston, MA. 50 degrees F, but the cold and snow will return in a few days. Right now I will enjoy this small amount of reprieve in this fairly cold and snowy winter so far.
