One Crafter's Stash . . .

. . . is another one's treasure!  Just as I thought I was about to be overwhelmed by the amount of fabric spilling from shelves, bins and boxes, I came across this great idea:
Charm About You
That's right - it's a linky party hosted by Lucy at Charm about You to showcase fabric that maybe you're not that likely to use in order that it might find a more loving home (head on over if you've got a little of your own stash to give away, or to do some "shopping").  I have so much fabric that falls into this category, it's a little embarrassing - OK, A LOT embarrassing.  I just can't pass up a good deal!!  Here are a few that I am pretty sure will never be turned into something lovely by yours truly:

I'm just not much of a floral girl - though clearly, I want to be, since I keep buying floral fabric!!  These pieces are all 1 yard each...and I'd be happy to part with all three!  Or, if you find you're not much of a floral person either, check out my extensive fabric inventory (just don't judge me).  
These are just a small selection of the 160+ fabrics I have listed!  I know, ridiculous!  That's not even all of it - I just haven't photographed the rest.  Click on the images to see a bigger version and for information on how much is available.  A note on my "secret fabric code":
____ yd = total yardage
FQ = fat quarter (~18"x22")
S = scrap (less than a FQ in size)
If you are the lucky winner, you can pick up to 2 yards of fabric from this crazy stash if the florals above just aren't tickling your fancy!   So - ONE lucky winner will get either 3 yards of florals as pictured above, or a choice of any 2 yards (any combo - 3FQ + 1.25 yards - whatever you want) - heck, maybe I'll send you both.   

Here's how to enter - you MUST use the Rafflecopter widget pictured below to enter - click on the either the "Log-in with Facebook" button or the "use your name and email" link just below the blue button!  If you just left a comment on my blog, you didn't enter and you won't win!
