I am thoroughly enjoying reading your comments! And you have come up with several sewing disasters that involved blood and one even involved flames!
I was tempted to break this into two giveaways, but I couldn't decide how to split them up, so let's just make it one giveaway. This giveaway contains 21 quilting weight cottons from Michael Miller, Robert Kaufman, Alexander Henry, Jennifer Paganelli, Anna Griffin, Heather Bailey and Erin McMorris. Each piece is 1 to 2 yards. (I will have to admit, while sorting through said stash, I did stick back two fabrics that I just couldn't part with!)
To enter this giveaway, leave a comment on this post of your favorite sewing/crafting expression and where you heard it. I'll select a winner at random on August 17.
I have two favorites. When my grandmother would mend something for you, she would say "a quarter for threading up". My mother always refers to a point in her project as "the burning stage", meaning you aren't sure it is ever going to look like anything and you just want to burn it.
