Do Over!

It's not often you get a "do over" in life, but as it's been two weeks since I announced the winners of the fabric for the Charmed Gift Bags and one of the two winners has not claimed her prize, we'll have exactly that--a do over. Another chance for you to win. Woo-hoo!

Seriously, originally I was going to do the giveaway anyway and then I stumbled upon the May Day Giveaway thing and thought "well why not?" But really, I prefer to have giveaways for those of you who are loyal readers rather than someone who's just hopping from blog to blog, hoping to win something. That's why I never ask you to blog about my giveaways or do anything else to attract new readers to my blog. Of course, that's not to say I don't love new readers! I DO! But you know--having someone pop in and comment for a chance to win and then never come back again? Not anything I strive for here. So this one's just for you--shhhhh! Don't tell anyone!

In an effort to throw everyone else in Blogland off, I did an Yahoo image search for "the most boring thing in the world," because you know some bloggers have those things in their sidebars that show who's posted recently and a copy of a photo from their blog post. So I figured a photo of "the most boring thing in the world" would probably keep random blog readers away. Funny what came up though. Mariah Carey and jury duty!


So now no one will know I'm having a giveaway except you, and it will be our secret, okay?

Okay, just to refresh your memory, here's the fabric you'll win if your name is drawn:


And that fabric will make about three of these:


Of course, you're welcome to make whatever you want with it--it's approximately 1/4 yard of each fabric.

And also to refresh your memory, the pattern I used for the Charmed Gift Bags is by Kim Walus and can be found at the Moda Bake Shop HERE.

So leave me a comment telling me you want to be entered, and I'll draw a winner Saturday night; then, come back on Sunday to see if you've won. Good luck!
COMMENTS CLOSED--WINNER TO BE ANNOUNCED!

Bahahahahahaha.....love your thinking! I must admit I was wondering about the significance of the pic in my sidebar! I agree with your sentiments re giveaways! As much as I would love to enter this time...please don't put me in the draw...I have WAY too much fabric now....and have only just found a home for it all in my new house.....how cute are the little baskets...I think I could make about a thousand of those and maybe use up part of my stash...LOL....Good luck with the cleaning...and glad you are sleeping better...hope that continues!

Fiesta said...

Thanks for the chance to win Kim.

Andrea said...

I never blog my giveaways either Kim - I agree with you all the way. Lovely fabrics. I can't believe they haven't been claimed -maybe not a regular reader xx

SoozeM said...

Yay another choice, woohoo, I will have to cross my fingers a bit tighter this time :)

kimland said...

When I saw the Jury Duty pic and Do Over, I thought you don't need another jury call with everything else that is going on in your life. Glad it for another chance at winning the fabric for the cute little bags. Good luck with your hand surgery.

Nothing like a second chance! maybe my luck has changed :_)

DonnaCME said...

Thanks for the do-over, Kim! I'd love to be entered....

Brenda S said...

Thanks for the chance in your do over. My stash is going down I have made three quilts in the last month.

The Southern Mom said...

Although your blog is one I read daily, I almost feel guilty for entering because I don't comment often enough...but not that guilty, because fabric is my drug of choice and I'm so addicted!

Quilter Kim said...

Please enter me in the drawing for the fabric. I figure if I can't make it to California for one of your classes the next best thing would be to make a bag like your students received.

Maryjo said...

Love your blog and would love to meet you...hope I win...please enter my name.

Sandy from Thimbleberries said...

Kim,
Since I couldn't make your class I would love to win the fabric. Please put me in the drawing.

Cara said...

I know what you mean about pop in readers...I think I like better just having people who read my blog, more or less regularly, then everyone and their sister following etc for a giveaway.

Tiffany said...

Yay!! I would love to be entered again because this fabric grabs me every time I see it and I need it! :) HeeHee!
Thank you!!

Vicky said...

Don't put me in the drawing, but just wanted to leave a comment that I'm a loyal reader! Have coffee with you every single morning! :)

I'm definitely a regular reader, and I would love another opportunity to win the fabric, and I would use it to make the cute bags that you made!

Rhonda said...

Kim, that is too funny...the pic I mean.
I'd love to win those fabrics...I've got to get busy making things for Christmas presents...you know!

Shelley said...

Oh, I want to win!LOL! I loved this fabric and your bags the first time around and love having a chance again to try to win it! What does it say about our world that Mariah Cary comes up as most boring?? LOL!

Andra Gayle said...

I would love to be entered in your fabric give away! Love the bag!!

Mary said...

Hi Kim...

I would love to be added to your give-away! I read your blog all the time and wanted to tell you after reading a past post that I sympathize with your husband...I also have Meniere's...it's no fun! So let him know that he's not alone...he has fellow spinner out here...glad to hear he can still do fun things with your son.

Thanks, Mary

Judy in Michigan said...

I would love to win your give-away. As I said before, anything from you would be a wonderful gift as you are my inspiration! You always seem to do the coolest things with a pattern and/or a simple block...like the wool pattern - not just a rabbit but a really cool RABBIT!! and your schnibbles quilts are over the top - so creative. I'm buttering you up but I do so because it is all true! Thanks Kim!

Kim West said...

OOOhhh how cute! I love that fabric. I am a regular reader - just rarely comment.

Sinta Renee said...

I have not had enough tea this morning... I got really confused from my 'reading list" then clicking on the Jury Duty picture and then to here! I get it now! you are so clever! So I would love to be entered into your drawing this week and I actually would love to make those adorable bags with the fabric too! Kim's pattern is so cute!

Lynn Osborne said...

I have been wanting to make those little bags for so long. They just haven't made it to the top of the to-do list yet. Winning the fabric would be the best incentive! Thanks for the chance to win.

Nancy said...

I read everyday...so that makes me loyal...

And I'm BORING... So that should get me a second entry... right?

Would love a chance to make 3 of those cute little bags..


my word verification - equeness - noun...the state of being able to use EQ...ha ha

Carol said...

trying again to win that cute fabric. I never did find a suitable solution to the tote bag 'bottom' that I asked you about. And the shipping from the company you sent was much more than i was willing to pay. So still searching......

lesthook said...

I read all your posts so I am a regular,LOL! Would love to win.

Susan said...

I didn't think it was possible, but these bags are even cuter the second time around! Please enter me in the giveaway.

Well, it's too bad so sad for them because I want to win these. They are terrific. Love the bags.
Yeah, right like she is going to do jury duty....

Gran said...

Hey Luv - Interesting that you found the Jury Duty picture since I posted a cartoon of my jury duty experience yesterday. I bet we were doing our posting at the same time.....
Passing on the giveaway - I have my very own special one that you made for class- THANKS!

Glenda in Florida said...

I'd love a second chance at more fabric. I'm here every day, but when I saw that photo on someone's sidebar, I figured you got called for jury duty. I've been called twice, and I would't say it was boring--I'd call it gut wrenching.

Patricia said...

I'm a daily reader of your blog. It's a great way to start the day. Those little bags are on my list of things to make this summer. I would love to win the fabric!

Mariel said...

I love reading your blog everyday and would love a chance to win some fabric! Sign me up, please.

Winona said...

Kim, please enter me in your giveaway. I don't comment a lot, but I read your blog every single day. I don't feel like my day is complete without reading about yours. (grin) Have a wonderful weekend. Winona

Mary said...

Thank you for the chance on the do over. I am a loyal follower. I find you very interesting. Right after you posted the first time about the Charmed Gift Bags, I got the pattern and made a couple. I think they are cute. Would love to win, but just happy to comment.

Kris said...

Lol! Jury duty MUST be the most boring thing in the world, because people are always trying to avoid it!!! And as for Mariah Carey..... she's a celeb. Nuff said! I would love to have your stuff!

Lisabee said...

I'd love another chance to win this fabric!

And there's really not much that could be more boring than jury duty.. even with Mariah Carey. I guess getting put on a jury might be interesting, but I've never made it that far.

Carol said...

I love your bags and I'm a big fan of ME fabric. Please enter me your drawing. When I saw your blog title I thought you were picked for Jury Duty again.

BUT when it comes to a give away; there's suddenly 4 times as many comments. hm....

anyway, love your blog...the fabric (give away) is lovely and i have just the place to use it!!

Kris said...

I have been quilting for about 20 years (and I feel like I am too young to say that!) It has only been recently that I thought to look for inspiration on quilt blogs. I happened upon yours and bookmarked it even before I read about this give away. I have to say, I absolutely LOVE you sense of humor! The most boring thing in the world is priceless! Thank you for this opportunity and I plan to come back often.
