Finally some winners!

Finally some winners!

I am so sorry folks that I haven’t gotten to this before.  I had such a good start to blogging this month, and then life just got so full of  “stuff” some good and some not so good, but even that will work out…. I will write more about that later.

But let’s get to those giveaways I have had in the last month, huh?

Okay so the winners of 10 Fat quarters from my stash from the Bumble Beans Basic post are:

Hilary Stillman  and Melissa Peda….I will be sending your prizes out later this week.  I have  your addresses already because you so generously sent in blocks for the quilt drive.  I would like to also thank all the others who sent in blocks.  so many generous souls.  I received a total of 86 blocks and it will be enough to make up two quilts for the drive…..every one counts.

and then we have the winner of Jessica’s book Modern Mix

#116 out of #118 makes the winner Flaun!    Please send me your mailing address via email at bluenickel5 (at) earthlink (dot) com

And then we have the FIVE  winners from Emily Cier’s Book Tour for Scrap Republicthese were number 97, 196, 24, 161, and 197 out of 218 comments (a record here for sure!!) ….Now I have no easy way of counting these up ….so I started trying counting….then I gave up …and Just randomly went through and picked some…even more random than probably….but its my blog and I can do what I want to….(do I hear music?)

Winner of the Book Scrap Republic  is  Billie K.

Winner of the Scrap Republic Eco Tote from C&T Publishing—(US residents only)   is  Deb (10-12-11 8:06am)

Winner of the Bag o’ Scraps from Robert Kaufman is  Susan

Winner of the ROY G BIV Essential Cotton Thread in Red, Pumpkin, Butter, Lime, Cerulean, Midnight, and Red Violet from Connecting Threads—(US residents only) is  Judy C in NC

Winner of the Mrs. Roy G. Biv Pattern from Carolina Patchworks (the pattern that inspired the book!) is  Betty (10-12-11 9:28am)


and I think this is the last one….the winner of scraps from my upcoming projects with Curious Nature by David Butler is  none other than my friend Elaine at Tinkerverve!  Elaine, you are going to have wait awhile because I don’t even have any fabric yet.

Everyone please send me your addresses to bluenickel5 (at) earthlink (dot) net….if I don’t hear from you, I will go hunt you down through the comments, but it would make it easier for me if you just send it.


Oh, and I left you with a bunch of  2-truths-and-a-lie mysteries, didn’t I?

Okay so here they are:

David Butler digs Gaga and Chris Cross, but not REO Speedwagon

Emily does have blue toenails, and did find bears on her honeymoon, but no tattoo…

Jessica has never worked in a fabric store, her first quilt was teal and rose, but she didn’t make costumes for the college cast of Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory..(although she did do some for Alice in Wonderland)

So there you have it…the wrap up of a very busy month at the Blue Nickel.  Looking forward to sending out these prizes and sharing the fabric love.

and remember, you can Uberfest whenever you want …. We’ll always be here for you!!


that kind of sounds like the closing of a chapter, doesn’t it?  Well, there may be a break or two here at the blog, but it’s still running,   I may  or may not post all that often, as I am really busy, but rest assured, the Blue Nickel is still here, whirling away with something creative.  It is too deep in my core to disappear…..


Happy last few days of October to you…..Here’s to a Lot to be Thankful for next month and beyond as well!

Piece out,





  • Serious!?! I won? Thank you! No rush on sending it out though. It will take me a while to come out of my Quilt Market stupor.

  • Awesome! Thanks so, so much. I sent you an email with my address. Let me know if it doesn’t come through.

    Hey Flaun, I got the email and forwarded your address to Stash…they are at Market this weekend, so I am not sure when you will get it, but Modern Mix should be on its way any day!
