A Winner, A Question, An Other Drawing

A winner - a winner is Happy Cottage Quilter!


She has won a charm pack of Collections for a Cause - Mill Book Series 1835.
I'm not a big fan of that era in fabrics, but this group is very appealing to me. Fancy that.  I hope Jocelyn enjoys this little treat. It comes with two pieces of Collection - Historical Blenders - that we just got in. So they went out in the mail today!



Now you may be asking yourself " Why in the world would she leave a trash can sitting right in the middle of the walkway?  And doesn't she ever put up all those bolts sitting around on the floor?"   Well! there's a reason for the trashcan, as a matter of fact there are at least 23 others of the same ilk sitting around the shop last Saturday!  And if you'd like to win a packet of new fabrics, just in the door and the new smell still on them, leave a comment: The million dollar question is :(where is that drumroll when you need it?)  The question is WHY is that trashcan sitting in the middle of the walkway?

A winner will be pulled from the hat on Sunday, June 28th at 12:00 noon Mountain time.  And if you need a hint, pop on over to Granma's Charms where you can even see some of the new fabrics just in.

See you soon!

  1. It's to catch the rain. Sounds like it was a heck of a storm!

  4. Too much rain and not enough material to soak it up?? I am happy to look after any water damaged fabric for you (I just can't afford to pay for the postage!!)

  5. Catching the rain coming through the roof. Been there & done that, though with fewer than 23 catch-pots. After what seems like 40 days & 40 nights of gully-washers here in NC, we're having a few days of no rain. Thanks for the chance to win.

  8. OOh Raincatchers, I have the opposite problem in my conservatory. We had a downpour last night and the ground is so dry the water just ran like a river and broached the damp course, I now have puddles. Luckily I also have a mop and bucket!
    Ref a comment from Mhairi I would be happy to buy water damaged fabric and pay shipping to the UK.

  11. Oh no! If your roof is now a sieve, I'm afraid to think what will happen to your gorgeous fabrics! I hope you were able to clear them out of the way in time! Good luck!

  21. It's catching rain, rain, rain & we have seen a ton of it, too. It came in under my air conditioner a few days ago, a torrential downpour and water rolled across my hard wood floors! Easily mopped up but thank goodness it wasn't in the middle of the night because it would have sit there all night. Love your giveaway!! So much fun. :)

  22. To catch the rain, time for a new roof.

  23. I think the trash cans are there to collect all the wrapping from the luscious bolts of fabric you are getting ready to display. So much fun! I love stocking my shelves with products!!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I hope it wasn't because you had a leaky roof! Leaky roof and fabric bolts aren't a happy combination. :)

  33. Gosh you must have had a lot of rain to need so many trash cans to catch it. Hope all is dry again and that you won't need the trash cans to catch more.
