Penny's August 1st Give-Away - WINNER!

I let random number generator do the work for me tonight. Thank you to all who participated. I will have a lot of fun going around to all of your blogs over the next week or so!

The winner of the food fabric bundle that Penny chose for you is ........

PDUDGEON who said "LOL what a cute puppy Penny is, and such a good stash buster to boot! I'd be honored to win her very first selection."

Congrats, and I'll be sending you an email in a few minutes to get your snail mail address.

Again, thanks to everyone for encouraging me to stash bust .... one way or the other!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Penny woke me up bright and early this morning and said I had to cut fat quarters - of food fabric - before breakfast! Then after I had cut them, she told me I had to give them away! What a little stinker! She's feeling much better, although a bit scrawny. That must be why she chose all these wonderful fabrics with fruits and veggies on them! I think she's telling me something!

There are 37 FQs in this bundle, mostly from the Kyle's Marketplace line. I must have tried to collect other food fabrics, too, because a few are from another line. The selvage on Kyle's Marketplace says 2004. This might be their first Marketplace line. They're now seasoned and aged, and ready for your use!! Wouldn't these make cute grocery bags? I'm just saying ...

We'll do a quickie give-away this time. The drawing will be tomorrow evening, Sunday August 2nd, about 7:00 p.m. Pacific time.

Please remember to leave a way for me to contact you if you are the winner. If your comment doesn't link to your blog, then I'll need your email address.

And, yes, this will be on my stash report!! LOL

Good luck to everyone!!
