GIVEAWAY - BUNDLE #15

Bundle #15
 
This is a pretty bundle! I love the bottom fabric. It
is a thin green flowered small corduroy. It is big enough
to make some pretty things out of it! The green leaf print
on top are 2 small pieces of fabric and a pair of sleeves.
Both items have some small green
rick-rack on the bottom of them. There is 1 or 2 yards of
red soft christmas ribbon. Also 2 yards of wide
fabric christmas ribbon. This ribbon can be cut lengthwise
into 2 pieces. Take a look at the last photo to see it
better. There is about 1 or 2 yards of small pink ribbon.
 All of this is very pretty!!!!
Good luck!
Conny


GIVEAWAY - BUNDLE #14

Bundle #14
 
The bottom is thin green striped fabric. I still have
plenty of this left for myself! I love the pink-black
striped fabric. It has a medium thickness. It is
perfect for a skirt and or a matching coat. There
should be enough of this fabric for you to make
both pieces of clothing. The wide lace is orange and
can be cut. You can cut the flowers out of it or not.
I think I cut 2 yards of this lace.
 Here I am trying to show you the design better. Hope
you can see it okay!
Good Luck!

is thin. It would be great for many things. The pretty
red-pink flowered print is very pretty. It is a small
print.
Am sorry that I am not making any of this color
co-ordinated but when you have so much it is
really hard to put it all together.
Hope you like this set!

GIVEAWAYS - BUNDLE #1

Hello Everyone! Thank you
for your comments!!
 
Kim - the apartment building
is 20 inches wide X 20 inches
deep. Each floor is 8.5 inches high.
That is not including the
boards for each floor. I added another inch for
the outside frame and the inside
floors. This made the building about
201/2 X 201/2. This apartment building
was planned back around
Christmas time. At that time I knew
exactly what I was going to put into
each apartment. Which was going
to be one-bedroom apartments.
After playing around with each
apartment I have found that I can make
2 and 3 bedrooms in each apartment
except for 2 apartments. One apartment is the
first floor since there is
a main door and then another door to go into the
first floor apartment. The other 1 bedroom
apartment is on the 5th floor. That bedroom is
big so it can hold 2 cribs for a set of triplets.
Yes, as you can see I have been planning and
playing with these apartments for over a week
now.
 
Now for the Giveaways!!
This is a new type of a giveaway!
Every year I give away fabrics, laces
and numerous other crafty things that I do not use
or my intentions for that item changed. I just
give them to anyone that wants them.
Believe me there are plenty of people that
take what I give them!!
So this year I thought that since some of
you might be having problems getting fabrics
laces and things - that I would see if these items would
go over well for the giveaways. In many cases they
are already washed and have hems on them. Less
work to do eh!
Many of these fabrics are very pretty. Some of the
fabrics and laces are a half yard or more going up to
2 yards! There is not anything here that is ugly!
I have so much fabrics to get rid of! I hope you like.
 
I will try to describe each bundle to you.
 
 
Now for the rules SO PLEASE READ THESE!
AS ALWAYS YOU MUST BE A FOLLOWER OF THIS BLOG
AND LEAVE A COMMENT TO LET ME KNOW YOU LIKE THE ITEM!!
It is up to you if you link these giveaways to your blogs.
(Gee I wish my blog would let me do that).
Also there are going to be MANY, MANY GIVEAWAYS
coming your way so YOU CAN COMMENT ON ALL OF
THEM IF YOU WANT. HOWEVER I have always been
a fair person so to be fair on these giveaways - - if
you win on one giveaway you will not win on another
one.  In other words you can only win on one giveaway!
This way hopefully everyone can have a chance.
 
Every day I will be posting new giveaways!!!!
 
Now for the first giveaway BUNDLE #1.
The white fabric is very pretty! It has a stitched
design on it. Perhaps you can see that on the
last picture. The blue fabric is 2 pieces and has a
navy blue stripe at the bottom which I am sorry
but I forgot to snap the pic. The red  netting is new
and still in its little package where I bought it from
JoAnn's fabrics. It is 7. 8ths of a yard.
The white fabric is at least a fat quarter or more of
fabric.  
The tiny blue flowers are so pretty. This was a bigger piece
in which I have given you half and I have kept the other half.
Tonight I will be posting about 8 more giveaways.
Gee I hope you all like this new thing that I am
doing!!
If you do not like any of this please let me know so
I can delete all of these giveaway postings!!
 
Thank you for visiting me!

NEW YORK APARTMENTS!!

Hello Everyone!
Thank you for the lovely comments.
I wish that I could talk to you through
my blog but there are some things that
our bloggers will not let us do. And that
is one of them at least for my blogs.
I also have problems putting links on my
sidebar!
But I guess we cannot have it all.
 
Anyway I would like to thank all of you
for being my followers and putting up with
me. Allergy season approached early this
year so it is playing its toll on me already!
 
Giveaways are coming really soon!
 
As you can see I have been busy!!
My husbands work friend BILL KING built me
a 6 story apartment building!! Each floor is
8.5 inches tall making each apartment about
200 square inches which in the real world is 200 square feet.
With the scale of 1 to 1 ratio. That is still a little apartment.
I painted the outside
a nice light to medium brown color.
Everything inside is white. However I will
be painting some of the rooms colors and
maybe just a little bit of wallpaper, but not
much. There will be a lot of shabby chic apartments here.
The front door is on the bottom
floor on the window side but I am sorry
that I did not take a picture of that.
You will see it later when the windows
are painted and glued in.
 My hubby cut out all of the small and large windows.
Each apartment has a big bay-window that
will let you see much of what will be inside.
 The back of each apartment will be windowless, but
I am undecided if I should put windows on the
large opening door.
I am thinking about leaving it windowless also.
I want these apartments to hold a lot so they are going
to be crammed full. This building will be called
my NEW YORK APARTMENTS because I am hoping
to be able to make each apartment into 2 and 3 bedroom
units. I want to use imagination and so as not to be rude
or anything like that but most people must live in small
apartments because the rent is so high in New York.
I think that it is going to be time to change the outlook
of this blog to include the thatched dollhouse and this
building. Even with cramming lots of miniatures
into this building - I am still going to need another
building. My family buys me miniatures every
birthday, christmas or anniversary that I have.
 
THANK YOU BILL KING FOR THIS WONDERFUL
BUILDING!!!  I will treasure it always!!
 
Thank you for visiting me!
Conny
