A Blog Contest

My husband seems to think that part of the reason I’m in a bit of a slump is that there is too much clutter in my office and studio.  As much as I hate to admit that he’s right:  he’s probably right.  Over the next few days I’m going to have him help me get rid of the various pieces of computer equipment that no longer work that are clogging up the works, and I’ll also be working on reducing a pile or two.  One of the things that has been sitting around my office (AKA the laundry room) for longer than I’d care to admit is this fleece throw:


It was originally made with my Grandmother in mind, but in her current living situation, I’m not sure she’d even use it, and so I have let it sit around while trying to decide what to do with it.   I don’t really want to keep it — it’s far too pink to be used in my home, and even though my sister has a baby girl on the way, I have other plans for quilts for her.

But just a few moments ago I had an epiphany.  I’m just going to by-golly give it away.  To one of you, my friendly blog readers.  All you have to do is comment on this post between now and Monday night at 7 PM Central Time for your chance to win.  My trusty assistants will help me draw from your comments, only one entry per person, though………..

It is actually two layers of fleece, quilted in an allover feather pattern.

I did just measure it, and by the time I walked back in from the sewing room to type the numbers, I’d already forgotten how big it actually is.  It’s 40(mumble) something by more-than 40(mumble) something.   If y’all insist, I’ll go remeasure, and write it down right away, rather than relying on my short-term memory to last me the 2 minute walk.

So, there you go.  One person’s clutter can be another person’s snuggle-up-with-a-good-book.  Or maybe *you* the winner could find athe perfect person to give it to.

In any case: comment away!
