Stashbusting giveaways!

And boy am I ever trying to do some major stashbusting! Today starts an ongoing giveaway as we approach the holidays. I will be drawing names weekly to win a set of four coasters. With this idea, I thought I could achieve two things. First, my stash of fabric would be reduced drastically but so far it has hardly made a dent. *wink* And last, I could spread a little holiday cheer by playing elf at the same time. So I opened Santa's workshop and did overtime with rotary cutter and sewing machine.

I won't repeat the story of why I need to reduce my stash as you can read it on my other blog here and here. You can enter the giveaway on both of the blogs.

I will show the coasters each week and allow you to choose if you want to enter the drawing for a specific set or all of them. Just leave me a comment on this post along with the sets you would like to win. If you like them all then please tell me to enter you for all three drawings.

I will pick a winner in a couple of days. I gave away a few of these sets last year on my blog. If you won last year, you can still try again for another set this year. You can enter each week if you like, even if you have won. Since you get a set of four, you will have a larger set if you win a second time. I just love the idea of giving this year!

If you do not have a blog then you must leave me your email address in order to enter. If you do not want to leave it on a comment, please go to my profile page where you can email me.

Set 1 is red and black poinsettias fabric combines with green leaves and a gold backing fabric.

Set 2 is burgundy fabric combines with a green floral and dark green backing fabric.

Set 3 is multi colored leafy fabric combined with dark green and a blue pinecone backing fabric.

Good luck to you all!

They are all wonderful, Heidi as is your latest Christmas x-stitch ornament. With all my other commitments I've had to put x-stitching on hold but I plan to get back at it after the holidays. Yours are always such an inspiration.
