Cleaning Out, and Giving Away

First of all, if you haven't seen the new SHERLOCK on PBS, get a move on! It's phenomenal and Sunday's episode (# 2 of Season 3) is probably the best one yet.

NOW! I've been cleaning out and I have some things to give away. Let me know if you want anything and as long as you live in the US, I'll pay the shipping to get it to you. If you live elsewhere, sorry.

 Item #1 - TAKEN -, a quilted selvage bag, in browns. All it needs is to have the handles sewn on, and they have already been made. It's 12" wide, 13" tall, 4" deep, fully lined with an interior pocket.

Item #2 - TAKEN - White denim, or cotton twill. 54" wide. There's probably a full yard and some scraps, the largest of which are about 20" square. This has not been washed, and will shrink. It's all cotton.

Item # 3 - TAKEN - A bag of felt scraps in many colors (dunno where the photo went), a bag of embroidery cotton in many colors, and patterns for several darling Christmas ornaments. These are all hand sewn, but I can no longer hold a needle, so I won't be finishing them.

Lastly, for those of you who have never seen any of my older traditional patchwork, check these out:
This quilt is not a giveaway.
This is a flimsy I made in 1983 or 1984, from patterns from a Jinny Beyer book. The blocks are 16" square. It's about 60" wide by almost 80" long.

When my son saw it he commented, "Gee Mom, I know you don't like brown, but you sure do know how to work with it."

So, comment away!

Lynne,thanks for your giveaway. If no one has claimed your brown quilt, I'll gladly finish it, and pass it along to my cause--I keep my daughter's former endocrinologist supplied with quilts for newly diagnosed diabetic children. It's a great size for a teenager!

I'd be interested in the one under the brown quilt - it has names and words on it. I'll pay shipping for that one!!!

Millie said...

HA HA Judy! Nice try! The quilt under the brown one was made for me by my best pal, Julie. It lives on my bed and is my favoritest quilt. It isn't going anywhere!

Excellent way to clean out and move the energy on. I need to do some of that with UFO's that I have.

Beautiful quilt...and I guessed it was not a giveaway :)

To those who might be thinking about the tote bag - I have one Lynne made in black and white and I use it EVERY day going to and from work. Grab it!

I would like to have the tote bag. It is very pretty.

Your Jinney Beyer flimsy is a piecing masterpiece! Those blocks are not for the timid; well done. It deserves to be quilted, your son will want it one day! :)
