not all addictions are bad ones

(Dream On by Urban Chiks from Thistle Hill Fabrics)


(Good Folks by Anna Maria Horner from Thistle Hill fabrics)


(Bliss by Bonnie and Camille from Thistle Hill Fabrics)


happy tower of charms


(flower sugar and old new by Lecien bought from fresh squeezed fabrics)

Fabric addictions are not bad, surely? They don't make you ill or fat or require a stint in rehab. They just clutter up the house a little and cause the bank balance to look less than healthy.
My children are not ashamed of their addict mother, they just think I'm a little daft. My husband won't leave me - fabric is much cheaper than designer shoes and handbags. Plus, if it keeps me happy that has to be a good thing. Right?

Anyway - I'm a sharing type so I'm going to giveaway one charm pack of Bliss and one charm pack of Dream On to you. Mr Random Generator will pick 2 names on Sunday evening (UK time) and first name out gets the the first choice. Bliss or Dream On - which would you choose?

Get an extra chance for being a follower of me/subscribe to my blog updates (leave another comment if you are) and yet another extra chance for following Fat Quarterly (again, leave another comment to say so).

Comment away and good luck!


Small Print...international entries welcome, Mr Random Generator's decision is final, make sure I have some way to contact you - if your name is picked and there's no email addy linked to your comment I'll pick another name. Sorry!

Edit - Giveaway is now closed, I'll announce the winners tomorrow!
