FALL LEAVES CUTOUTS

Well....I have this project you see......


I cut out like a million oak leaves (exaggerating of course, but it sure feels like it) and......

well....I have switched gears.....I didn't like how it was going, felt so uninspired....and just didn't want to
do it any more.....but once I switched gears, changed colors....the light bulb went off....and well...

needless to say we are a happy camper except I have a ton of oak leaves (exaggerating again).


While I was cutting out the oak leaves I would cut the scraps out as well....

So....I figure I can just slip these in an envelop for someone.....just leave a comment.
They might not be exactly like these (my disclaimer).

I am also giving a set away at Inchworm Fabric's blog.

Winner will be picked Sunday?  I think that is what I said on her blog...yes.....just leaving a room I can forget.

----------------------
By the way, the two winners of the Reindeer games have been notified but they have not contacted me...if by Sunday they do not contact me, I will choose two more winners.

How pretty & what fun ... giving away to some lucky gal.
Must have been a chore cutting them ...

I have so missed hearing from you, but I have not been out & about for a good while. Things will afford me this time more often as we enter the cooler months.

Have a great weekend!

GIVEAWAY ends 9/9

TTFN~
Hugs,
Marydon

What - no comments yet...well now you have one.....
Oh wait, I think you moderate so I may not be number one. LOL

Rachel said...

I LOVE your leaves, they are inspiring me by just looking at them, LOL! Thanks for the opportunity!

Fiesta said...

Those are so pretty Barb. I just finished a falling leaves quilt for my family room and I was not going yo cut out the 40 leaves I put on it so I too used the Go cutter.

Vicki said...

love leaves - and you have done all the work! thanks for the opportunity.

Angie@sewscrappyquilts said...

Oh I would love to have them. I need to make a fall table runner.

landscapelady said...

this is your project? Fall is coming and the leaves will be a falling! Best time of year here in Vermont. You can do a lot with leaves, placemats, small art quilts, big quilts - or just put them in an envelope and send them to an admirer in Vermont;-)

Thearica said...

My friend Marie came over today for a sew in and she is starting a quilt with batiks and needs some leaves! Please put my name in the pot and should i win, I will pay them forward on to her. :)

Cheryl Willis said...

I did similar years ago, wanted leaves to applique around a holiday table cloth. Hadn't thought it through when it came to stitching around a hundred leaves- lol
ended up making napkins and appliqueing a leaf to 12. That cured me of my leaf fixation. I used cookie cutters as my templates.
Do NOT enter me in your give-a-way- thanks for letting me remember a long ago project (that probably still is sitting in a drawer somewhere!
Can't wait to 'see' what you are doing with yours. cw

Susan said...
