Friday Night Sew-in & Giveaway Day Results!!
Thank you for your patience in waiting for my Friday Night Sew-In post! I was hoping to hear from my Giveaway Day winners before this post hit the blogosphere!
TGIFF or I may have to devote all of next Saturday to sewing to get my WIP's done before they turn into UFO's at the stroke of Midnight New Year's Eve! The very project I showed you yesterday, telling you that I was going to work on only got a few squares sewn together. It will need different amount of squares for each placemat, so I am trying to plan that out before I have to seam-rip (I would rather go to the dentist).
The 1st winner chosen by the best comment is:
Marcia W who said,"As your child grows, they will start exploring and pulling things out. Suggestion: Invest in a storage unit that has drawers on the bottom and open shelves on the top. Then, use clear plastic containers with lids of the size that fits your unit. My mother's sewing area was in a deep closet with shelves, the machine cabinet in the middle, good lighting, and louvered bifold doors that closed to hid the mess. All her craft and sewing supplies were in clear boxes on sturdy deep shelves on each side of the closet, making use of that area on the fixed end of the doors. There was separate closet for clothes. This was in my bedroom, and it worked! Thanks for the giveaway. "
The reason I chose her comment was because I realized after reading her comment we had such furniture already; My husband's Executive desk, Credenza, Filing cabinet, And matching book case. I had never considered asking him to use it, but when I asked, he said it is mine for the new apartment! This will allow everything to be locked away on the bottom, open on the top and in the common area so I can work there at any time of day or night! Thank you Marcia!
2nd Winner was chosen by Mr. Random Generator is:
Cat who said," Ha! I am the worst person to ask this question to. I live in a tiny apartment so my crafting stuff is stuffed into every crevice and hole I can find!"
Thank you for all those you participated in my first Giveaway Day! I am sorry if you did not win, I wish I could have given many of you prizes. I am planning on having another giveaway over the first week of the new year; please check back! I am now in anticipation of attending Ziona's first baby shower! I am so excited that other people want to celebrate her with me, I can't begin to say what it means to me...Tomorrow is Stash Report & maybe a picture from the shower!
