One More Day to the Giveaway!!

I want to take a minute to thank everyone for their wonderful comments over on Stash and also here on my blog. I appreciate you taking a minute to leave me a comment. I had a few chuckles and no Jack is not included in the giveaway! Although, thanks for asking! As a matter of fact he is sleeping right next to me on the couch as I type this! He nagged and nagged until I finally sat down so he could nap. Aren't cats so funny??

Back to the giveaway. I plan on drawing tomorrow, Valentines Day so if you want to be in the draw for my Giddy scraps and the scraps from the box you need to do the following:

You will need to leave a comment on Stash telling me you are a follower of Stash Manicure. In your comment please tell me if you have ever done string piecing and what you like about it. You need to become a follower of this blog (please tell me you are) and let me know what you thought about the tutorial. That's it one comment on Stash and one here on the post about the giveaway.

Now I have a little favor to ask. Since I am giving away some scraps I have been going through my scraps and I realized that I am in need of a nice assortment of purples/lavenders. I am working on a little project for my DD1 and I want to use some purples to frame it up. I am looking for pieces that I can make 2.5" squares from. I have to preview a few size squares but I should be able to get what I need from 2.5" pieces. Anyone up for sending me some purple squares, scraps or strips?? I may have some scraps/squares or strips you could use so just ask me! I hate to go out and buy even a FQ when I really don't need so much. If you can help me out please send me an email at

Alright, I think I'm finished for now. I am almost done with my super secret project so will be able to move on to some of my own things soon and will have more pics for all of you!

OM gosh I can't believe I almost forgot to tell you that I found an amazing BOM and will be beginning that one soon. I will be on the look out for some jewel tone prints for this one to combine with the Kaffe Fassett fabrics I already have. I put the button on my side bar and it is called My Tweets. The center medallion pattern is one you have to purchase but the rest of the patterns are free. Anyone want to join me??

Have a great Sunday and I will be back soon!



Dear Mama Sparks,
I went to "Stash Manicure" and I love the site and your guest project. I don't know how to leave a comment on that site. Can you help me?
I, as you know have done strip piece quilting. It's my favorite!

Thanks for sending me to "my tweets" - that is going to a great quilt - not sure if I am up to it - I have never appliqued by hand before - guess there is a first time for everything.

Hugs - Marie

I want to do it, but I think it's a bit above my experience range. I've already cut the pieces for one bird, then just kinda stalled. I would love if you could share your process on this project. I'm floundering on this!

I love the My Tweets pattern, but I am not up to snuff with my applique techniques. I may try it later. I sent you an email about the purple fabric.

Charity said...

I would gladly offer you a few scraps, but purple just isn't one of my colors. I have boys, that sort of explains everything.

Allie said...

Oh Pam, the ONE color I don't have is purple, lol! My least favorite color. I wish I could help!

Jo said...

thanks for the tutorial! I tried once doing it without a centered square. It was a mess. I am now doing smaller squares for coasters. They are scrappily fab!

I have some purple scraps. I don't have a lot of them but you are more than welcome to have them. Do you still need some?
