I always love sharing on Friday in Show 'N Tell sponsored by Kelli. It is always fun to select something to show and share and then the double treat of getting to visit all the other blogs who are also participating. If you haven't participated yet you must....you will be blessed and be a blessing. Go here to participate and sign-up on Mr. Linky.
Over the years I have done a LOT of sewing. When my daughters were young I made a lot of their dresses, plus a lot of my own. My mother was a great seamstress and I learned most of my sewing skills first hand from her. I did take one Sewing Class in Junior High School where we made an apron!!!!
I loved going to the Fabric Store and picking out a new pattern to make, and then selecting just the right fabric for it. My sewing skills were limited to clothing and some curtains, place mats, etc. I never got into tailoring or doing any fancy gowns. Most of my sewing was for us gals, although I did do a few items for my husband & sons. When I was p.g. with our last child I made ALL my maternity outfits (we didn't wear pants in those days!!!).
That's my TELL
about my past sewing skills. At this point in my life I no longer do any sewing. In cleaning out "stuff" for my garage sale last week-end I discovered a box of fabric I had put back and forgotten about. I thought it would be fun to have a drawing here on Show & Tell to give it to one of my Blogland friends who sews and could use a little stash of fabric.
Eight different pieces of fabric ranging in sizes of 3/4 yard, 1 1/2 yards, . 2 1/2 yard, 3 yards & 3 1/2 yards. Most are cotton but there is one satin and one upholstery fabric.
Here is my GIVE-AWAY
SO.... if you sew and could use some extra fabric please let me know by telling me in your comment that you would like to be entered in my drawing for this fabric. I will draw the winning name on Monday, June 1st and announce the winner in a post that day.
Oh, and by the way, even if you are not interested in the fabric drawing please don't forget to leave me a comment. You know how we love to read comments about our posts.
