Clearing Out! Don't Want It! Take It Please Give Away!!

Years ago I collected panels. The key word being "collected" because obviously never made. As I was going through a bunch of fabrics today to send to a fellow blogger in need of stash enhancement I came across these. I don't want them....take them please! What you see above is a Fall vest, Fall apron, a scarecrow to stuff with polyfill, a Christmas tree skirt panel with stockings to match and then a Fall wall-hanging panel. The panel to the left is quality while the others are likely Wal-Mart from years ago. You know the routine....leave a comment and check back here on Wednesday to see if your the lucky one.

This weekend a sweet little package arrived completely out of the blue as a surprise from Carol!
DH was the one to collect it from the box saying something about he just doesn't get it. What is to get I ask you? Bloggers have become friends and friends love to surprise friends with little gifties! Carol made the sweet little bag and stuffed it full of these delights. I love it all but what I will treasure the most is the little signature block she included for my civil war signature quilt. You can find a link to this swap on my side bar. Thank you so much Carol.
I've got the binding on the Christmas Scrappy Stars with exception of the hand stitching to the back. This work I love to save for evening television. Anything good on tonight? LOL

Carol is so sweet! Those are very nice gifts she sent. And to such a nice person!

Sherry said...

What a great idea i have some vest also so I should look for them and do the same. But I think the scarecrow sounds cute.

Pat said...

I volunteer with Project Linus and those ladies can do wonders with panels.

Wendy said...

What a delightful surprise from Carol. Blogging friends are wonderful.

Pat said...

What a nice surprise you got from Carol. I think many husbands don't "get" it. LOL

AnnieO said...

Blogging friends are special--how nice of Carol! I don't mean to enter in the drawing, just wanted to comment on your lovely treasures received.

onlymehere said...

I think unless you blog you just don't quite "get" the connection we have with each other, lol! Enter me for the giveaway please. I love fall and have just learned to machine quilt on my home machine so this could be fun to practice on! I also love the surprise you got from your friend. Lucky you! Cindy

Mrs Quilty said...

Well, I could use those panels! Very cute!! Pick me! How wonderful that Carol sent such a fun package!! Nothing like blogger friends!

WoolenSails said...

I love panels, hard to find good ones now.
Great practice for me to get better at stitching without having to think too much;)

arlette said...

Hmmmm, I'd like to have them, please pick me, lol

crazypatch dreamer said...

I don't really want the panels, but I have a great idea for how to use them up. I saw a quilt once where the backing was made up of different panels all sewn together. It was unusual but interesting. Your panels could be used to back a fall quilt. Louise

rockgranny said...

How lovely of you to give as a part of your stash.Of courese, I'll love to get it. Please, count me in.

Stephanie D. said...

(Wildly waving hands--both, for good measure) Pick me! Pick me!

I so love Halloween and that black cat needs me!

Barb said...

What fun prizes.....and yes, blogging friends are awesome!!

Teresa said...

A very nice gift for sure. Don't enter me in the give away - I have a collection of my own panels to work on! I did want to say how beautiful the quilting looks on the sneak peak of the prior post. My swirls never come out that evenly spaced.

Susan Cahill said...

What a fun fall selection. I too pick up panels when I see them and I use them, eventually.

I would love to be entered.

Well I'm not a "count me in" gal but I did want to visit my Hidey Hole and see what all was in that fantastic bag. Wow! Very loving gift. I also enjoy saved hand work for the evening but last night I totally crashed out. Fell asleep on the couch at 8ish. oops.

Carrie P. said...

I will admit that I probably would not make those things in our giveaway so do not add my name.
Wow, Carol sent you some great stuff. The little bag is so cute. That was sweet of her to make a siggie block too.

Kaaren said...

Yep, they just don't get it do they, Mary?

My DH doesn't understand my everyday trips to the post office to check my mail ever since I started blogging. BB (before blogging) I used to go once a week.

Great gifts for an even greater gal! Hve a super day!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Oh wow, great prize. Please count me in :-)

miniaturequilter said...

I love fall fabrics!!! Please enter me into your giveaway too!!!:-))

Cindy said...

Too funny, I have the same "collection" of fabric - you're right, probably from Walmart.

What do they say about "great minds"? ..... or not....LOL

Tell hubby us bloggers stick together....... it's our own little world of appreciating each others' talents.

Judy said...

Wow what a fantastic surprise gifty! Love everything! Panels always seem like a good idea don't they, then they never see the light of day!

Karen said...

Cleaning out, eeh. I don't want to be entered in the giveaway. I just came to visit.
I Love visiting Carol!!! I actually knew she was secretly getting this ready for you. She is sooooo sweet. Lucky you!! My Goodness. I am learning how quilty bloggers can become friends! :0)
You are going to be all set to do 2 siggie quilts at the rate you are going!

StitchinByTheLake said...

I've been thinking about making a fall vest - that would be perfect for me! blessings, marlene

Terri said...
