DST Giveaway: Day #5




I have a collection of 6- half yards Kathy Schmidt
fabric and a sweet little pattern called Endless Summer
for the DeStashing Time (aka daylight savings time) giveaway today.
The little chick was just on my desk and wanted to be in the picture...
so she isn't part of the giveaway. I will find a couple more little patterns
to sweeten the pot though.
If you are interested leave me a comment. I loved reading 
your comments yesterday about what you are celebrating. 
So, maybe today you could comment and tell me if you are a 
Pinterest addict (like me).

I had my friend pick a winner again for me. 
(I hate doing that)... fortunately Rhonda has 
no political or blogging ties... so she is completely
impartial and the perfect person for the job!

The winner for giveaway #3...  the Graceful Stitch book on applique:
the winner is: Ramona who said:
I do the freezer paper/liquid starch applique method. It takes awhile to make your pieces but then you glue baste them down and they are ready to pick up and sew when you want. You must do a post about the dresden corners. Does the regular binding go under those dresden points or just end at them?


Last week I mentioned a book that I love by Edyta Sitar called Scrapppy Fireworks.
A friend of mine had made a quilt from it... and now I have been having dreams
about making something from the book too!
Luckily I have been going through some of my stash to do these little giveaways
because I found a clear zippered bag (the kind you buy at quilt shops, usually with their logo on it),
and look what was inside of it...
Looks like I had a win also!!!
Now that I found it, I remember one of those sales
where it was $$$ for XXX fat quarters.
I remember I bought 50...
and Rhonda bought 50 also. 

We weren't even at the store...
(because it was several hours away)
they mailed 100 fat quarters to us!
They picked them out from the description
of style that we asked for.


 I had these cut... to make "something"...
but it looks like the rest of it will be perfect to
make a different "something" from that book!
I am tickled pink!

I am not a Pinterest addict - in fact, it's one of the few time-gobblers that I've managed to avoid - so far. That's not to say that I don't spend way too much time on the computer.

Donna said...

Although I am not a Pinterest addict, I do enjoy spending random amounts of time there - usually when I am looking for something specific. My work is with a wedding/special event rental company and we see so many brides who find the cutest DIY projects on Pinterest.

KatieQ said...

I love Pinterest, but I'm not sure I would call myself an addict. I think ardent fan might describe me better. I am a blog addict. I love keeping up with other quilters and reading about what they are doing.

JustPam said...

I am trying to limit my time on blogs and pinterest. They are so time consuming. On top of that I get too many ideas of more things I want to make or do. I don't have enough time with working full time to do what I already want to do without getting more ideas!

Vroomans' Quilts said...

I do not do Pinterest - I find inspiration in things around me.

Quilt Hollow said...

I LOVE Pinterest! I've yet to start my own but love scouring through others pins when time permits OR I'm looking for something special. Just last night i typed Pinterest Swoon quilts in my search engine and what a fun find! I even found that Pinterest pins are some of the best recipes!

martha said...

I am not a Pinterest addictbut many of my family are.I find inspiration on many blogs.

Nancy said...

I guess I can count myself as being a fellow addict. How is it that I can decide to just spend a few minutes checking some of the newest pins and come up for air two hours later? :)

Kim said...

I am not a Pinterest addict. I only go on there to pin so my account has something new.

Joyce said...

I have occasionally looked but have not set up a site of my own...I am so addicted to just following blogs, I'm afraid to start something new!

Izzy said...

Not an addict... a fan maybe! :-) I'm not as active on my own account, but I love looking at other people's pins.

Susan Smith said...

I am not yet a Pinterest addict! I don't have time to be one. I'd have to give up my sewing time to spend more time on Pinterest. I do have an account and have a few pins but rarely spend time there. Thanks for the chance to win!

Annette said...

I love Pinterest! A great place for inspiration and for dreaming.

Redfinch said...

I'm not a Pinterest addict YET, but would be if I'd let myself... The first few times I browsed, I couldn't believe how much time I'd spent on it!
It certainly DOES stimulate my creativity though. Thanks for the opportunity to have some Kathy Schmidt fabric!

Sandy D said...

I am not a Pinterest addict.I have no idea what to do with it. I enjoy the blogs on google reader and there is not enough hours in the day for everything.

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

Great find! I can't wait to see the little somethings you make. ;-) I'd love to win your pattern and FQ's~ it looks like a very fun quilt. Thanks so much for the chances! As far as pinterest goes... I try not to look unless someone posts something cute. LOL I could lose whole days in there! ;-)

Donna said...

Exactly how much time I spent scrolling through Pinterest is gonna stay my secret! I'm retired. snow is still deep in my front yard. quilt projects caught up. I will trot our more excuses if you need them. I LOVE PINTEREST.

cherylj said...

I love Pinterest! I go on when my daughter wants me to watch Dora with her

carolyn smith said...

I just found you! Im not a pintrest addict.But, a quilt blog addict. Glad I found you!
Thanks, Carolyn

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Nope, I don't do Pinterest. I barely have time to read my emails and respond to comments lately. But I hear there are some beautiful things to see on Pinterest.

Margaret said...

I visit Pinterest when one of the blogs I read makes a reference to it, but that's about it. I'm concerned that I will either spend too much time there, or that I will feel decidedly inferior because of all the incredible creativity .
Good luck w/ your destashing - it feels good to get things cleaned out, doesn't it?

JoAnne said...

While I have a Pinterest account, I don't spend much time there. I spend way too much reading blogs and writing my own! I need to spend more time in the sewing room and less on the computer!

sandra said...

I love Pinterest so much , it is so wonderfully easy instead of bookmarking or printing things you want To find again. I do find that sometimes I just spend too much time on it.

Sue at The Boar's Breath Ranch said...

I too found I was spending way too much time on Pinterest, so I keep to my favorite blogs - like you- for inspiration. Thanks so much.

tpott said...

Nope no pinterest account for me. If I had one I'd never get anything done, I do occasionally check out some pages but that's it. ;-> Toni Anne

DebrafromMD said...

I've stayed away from Pinterest. I already spend too much time on the computer; I don't need another time sucking addiction (though I am tempted).

rebecca said...

Pinterest is the best. I find it very relaxing about 9:30 at night to browse quilty things, recipes and stitchery fun!!

dortha said...

I love Pinterest. Time gets away from you before you know it though.

scottylover said...

I a not a pinterest person at all. My sister in law keeps trying to get me involved with it, but I am afraid if I do, I won't ever get anything else done! :)

jmniffer said...

I've never been on Pinterest and have no plans to do so any time soon. I spend far too much time on my computer as it is, checking out all the quilting blogs that I enjoy, including yours! Thanks for the chance.

Deborah said...

I am not allowing myself to sign up to pinterest - I already use up enough time reading blogs and on facebook! trying to cut back on this too!

Cindy said...

Oh,yes,,as you know from repinning YOU occasionally, I DO Pinterest and I do Pinterest a lot!

Jo said...

I do Pinterest occasionally, but i find inspiration in blogland..thank you!

Judy said...

I love Pinterest! Thank you for the chance at your giveaway.

Brenda said...

I love Pinterest. I have a lot of pins must confess that I haven't tried or made many of them yet. I love all the new ideas you can get as well as the eye candy.

Jan Baker said...

I haven't figured out pin interest yet although my niece is trying to get me to use it. I love your stash and that pattern is wonderful. I have been into star quilts and this would be perfect to try one. 3bakergirlsgo@gmail.com

Sue said...

I love Pinterest ! I am always adding pictures to mine :-D

Jackie said...

I've checked it out a few times, but I am addicted to bloggers, lol, therefore I do not want to addict myself to pinterest also, it's too much time consuming.. Love your giveaway! Thanks for a chance.

Ruth K said...

wow! that's a lot of fat quarters. I love to check Pinterest but try really, really hard not to stay there for long, i went once to flicker and just couldn't shut my computer.

Rebecca Stevens said...

I don't dare do Pinterest. If I spent as much time sewing as I do reading and getting inspiration from you wonderful bloggers, I would accomplish so much more. Therefore, do not want to add another addition. Thanks for such a wonderful give away. rhoystevens@gmail.com

Becky said...

Establishing an account is as far as I've gotten! I'm lucky to keep up with blogs and FB right now :)

barbara woods said...

I am on interest and. Love seeing every ones pins

Sonia said...

I'm a Pinterest addict too! :)

Please add my name to your giveaway.

Thanks!

Melanie said...

I find that being retired you accept addiction in many forms. Such as Pinterest and quilting blogs.

Stitched With Prayer said...

OH Sinta, I have intentionally avoided visiting Pinterest, because I KNOW myself. If I did stop in there, I would not be able to pull myself away in a reasonable amount of time. Just way too much eye candy for my easily tempted self. That would have me spending even more time on the computer when I should be sewing (or choring, LOL) than I do now. So I had to make a choice, continue to visit the blogs I love each morning, or cut some of them off my list and add Pinterest in their place. Well, that was an unacceptable alternative because I love the group of blogs I visit each day and would truly be lost without a daily dose of them. Not to mention the friendships I have formed through them. So, I enjoy Pinterest vicariously through those of you who share your favorite picks from your on your blogs, giveing me the best of both worlds. Hugs...

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I not a Pinterest addict but I do enjoy using it to keep track of things I would like to sew or bake.

Susie Johnson said...

I actually just created an account, but I only follow 5 people, so it doesn't take me long to scan through it!

ytsmom said...

I am crazy about Pinterest. I avoid it if I feel like I don't have time to waste!!I have found some good recipes, and lots of beautiful quilts.

Linda said...

HI! YES,I LOVE PINTEREST TOO!
THANKS FOR SHARING!

Kathy said...

I don't have a Pinterest account, but I can spend a lot of time clicking around on everyone else's! I know I would spend way too much time at it if I had an account.

Thanks for the giveaway chance!

This Dog's Mom said...

I love visiting Pinterest but since i have to ration my time on the computer (life calls . . .) I don't spend much time there. I prefer visiting blogs and reading what bloggers write. Thanks for your blog!

Sherrill said...

I'm not an addict but I do peruse some peeps pins. Have found some cute stuff to do with my nephews that make em think their old aunty is COOL! HA

kathy said...

I do enjoy Pinterest. A lot. I really like looking at all the beautiful quilts and knitted items.

Heartsdesire said...

I'm a Pinterest fan, but not an addict. I already spend way to much time looking at blogs, but I really don't feel too bad about it, I always find something inspiring. And I love checking out everyone's fabric purchases.

Nancie Anne Quilts said...

If I were to work & keep up with my favorite blogs & fit in a few hours sleep & cook a meal here & there & add Pinterest...then there really would be no time to quilt & be creative cuz I' ve been told its wonderfully addictive! My best hope is that I may...one day...something I create might touch someones spirit enough that they choose to Pin it!

Just Sew Sue said...

I haven't got sucked into Pinterest yet as I spend way too much time on the internet already.

Lori L said...

I visit pinterest once in a while. I find there is enough other stuff in the blogs I follow to keep me in UFO's for quite some time. Thanks for the chance to win.

Gretchen said...

I am not yet an addict, mostly because I limit my time on Pinterest. It is kind of scary how much of my time it could take up if i let it.

karen said...

Nope. I've looked at it once or twice, but I'm not interested. Too many ideas, not enough time.

Kristy said...

No I am not a pinterest person. I spend enough time looking at blogs! :-) I like the ideas that get passed around blogland, so I do benefit even though I don't use the site. Thanks for these sweet giveaways each day. It is neat to see what people have that other people want. Thanks again- K-

paulette said...

Thanks for the chance to win your lovely give away!!

Kim said...

I like Pinterest but am not addicted. I think when I started I spent hours on it. I love reading blogs so I spend more time doing that! I'm a huge Kathy Schmidt fan and would love to win wish me luck!

Vickie said...

I love Pinterest. I have so many ideas filed away I hope I live long enough to use even a 1000th of them. that fabric will really go well with my house...just sayin :)

Wendy Ouellette said...

I love Pinterest, and am more of a binge person than an addict. I seem to go days without checking in and then days when that,s all I do. It is such a visual resource for quilters, knitters, cooks, dorators, and on and on and on...
Love that fabric and even have a small piece or two in my stash, and I would be thrilled to take it off your hands.

hueisei said...

I Love Pinterest :D
I found lots of inspiration from there.

Béa said...

I like Pinterest once in a while to find inspiration but i'm not addicted.Thanks for the chance, I love today's giveway. XXX

jenny said...

Love the site, I don't go there often because it could become addictive.

gailss said...

I have to say that I have not tried it and am afraid I will become addicted too! Perhaps I will give it a quick try...???

Carla A Few Of My Favorite Things said...

I am on Pinterest, but don't spend a lot of time there, cause it so addicting. So I try to limit myself to once a week. Following blogs can take up time to but, they are inspirational.

Shelley said...

Pinterest...oh my goodness, I tried, I really did. I swore I would NEVER go near the site...afterall, I'd heard all the stories..lol! It's my sister's fault..she sent me a picture from something on Pinterest..just let's say I must have an addictive personality because I am totally ADDICTED lol!! Addicted and loving it:)

Teresa said...

Love Pinterest. Very inspiring!!

Cheryl said...

I LOVE Pinterest!! I have been known to spend hours looking at everything! I have so many boards now. I have so many more plans because of it...or should I say dreams!!!

Cheryl

Marilyn said...

I have not gotten involved in Pinterest, am trying to monitor my computer time and I think that would suck me in pretty fast!

Cathy said...

I love Pinterest. I love the quilts, food, animals, photos, ooooh so much. I have found new blogs and websites. And tons of information. I got both my daughters hooked on it and even my 11 year old granddaughter. Hugs

pinsandneedles said...

Oh yes I'm a Pinterest addict! Love all the inspiration and wonderful finds. Most of my cooking these days comes from pinterest recipes as well as several projects!

Paula said...

I had to de-activate myself from Pinterest. I was spending valueable sewing time there. Really! Somedays I wish I was still there but then when would I sew??

jlgwyn said...

I've browsed Pinterest, but I find a lot of inspiration already in the blogs that I follow. Thanks for the beautiful giveaway for today - that pattern looks great!

gwendiequilts said...

I really don't follow Pinterest. They send me an email each week and if there's something about kids' art project, I look. That's about it, though. It gives me project ideas for the grandkids.

Deb said...

I don't follow Pinterest at all, I'm a blog follower and figure that takes up enough of my spare time, plus it pulls me away from quilting!

Gale, Ky quilter said...

I am not a Pinterest addict however I could have been. I soon realized between sewing, working, keeping up with my facebook family & quilt bloggers I wouldn't have enough time for Pinterest. I do, however, love when bloggers share something new they have found on Pinterest. Thanks for the giveaway!!!

Gill said...

I don't do pinterest or facebook etc!
Not enough hours in the day!

Stacy Lindblom said...

I love Pinterest but have to limit my time on there because I get carried away and before you know it, hours have gone by. Wow, there are alot of comments on here! I'd like to read them all but that would cut into my Pinterest time. LOL!!! Thanks!!

Kristy said...

Hello, my name is Kristy...and I am a Pinterest addict. I don't have my own board, but I stalk....I mean peruse many other people pins. I love the red berry flowers in that fabric and the Endless Summer pattern. I am so looking forward to just that...and endless summer. soardkgatfusedotnet

Laurel said...

I thoroughly enjoy Pinterest. It's like looking at magazines, but you can change the topic anytime you want. It's so relaxing to just look at the boards:) Thanks for the great giveaways!

Sarah said...

I haven't joined Pinterest yet, so no addiction. Mind you, the reason I haven't joined is because I know I will become addicted! Like I am to Facebook and blog reading!
