Distraction Giveaway II

Hi everyone!! It is time for the Distraction Giveaway II!

I went through my sewing room and attempted to organize everything so that I could once again find some space to create. I found a bunch of fun fabrics that I just do not have a project for and I am hoping that they can find a lovely home elsewhere.

This month I am packing as much stuff as I can into a flat rate Priority Mail box. Included will be a super cute little Heather Ross Mendocino mug rug that I made a year ago with some scraps and I love it, but just have never used it. It needs a good home! Also, I am sending out some fun fabrics (most are at least a FQ) and a coin purse handle that I found. It is a pretty marbled off white. :) Odds are that this will not fill up the box and you will find some more fun things in there... that is actually a promise.

 Pretty fabrics include some Lizzy House, Heather Bailey, Anna Maria, Horner, and a few 1930's reproductinos.
Here is the mini mug rug and it measures roughly 6x10 inches. :) Pretty swimming girls.

 And here are pictures of my recently cleaned out sewing room. I placed a bunch of WIPs on the top shelves of the book cases in hopes that if I look at them more often, maybe I will finish them!!!
Those upper black cabinets are my stash. :) It is nice to be able to close the doors and be done with the mess I have created, should I decide not to reorganize after pulling fabrics for my monthly blocks.

I would post up some pictures of the blocks that I have been frantically working on, but I am kind of irritated at Flickr right now. I do not like this new format and that has routinely been where I posted my pictures just because it was easy. I am pretty much only using Instagram for now... until that becomes yucky, too.

What are you guys using for posting your creative works? Do you use Flickr? Will you continue to use Flickr? Do you just use your own blog? Instagram?

In case you are new or have forgotten how this giveaway works. I will leave the drawing open for a few days, just leave me a comment and I will enter you. I will ship anywhere in the entire world, thanks for stopping by! Deadline to enter this week will be super short. I might have some cool things happening and I would like to have this post tucked away around that time. So this deadline is much shorter, LO SIENTO! Deadline: Friday June 21st at 5pm. :) Good luck!

  2. I could definitely give that mug rug a good home! And can I just say your sewing room looks great...everything handy and in its place. I really love your yellow step stool and am seriously jealous of that sewing machine table.

  4. Cool giveaway! I still use Flickr - I tend to share my creations there now instead of blogging about them as blogging takes too much time!! I hate the changes that Flickr made but I will persevere for now.

  6. Thanks for the giveaway! I'm using Flickr, but hate the new set-up. First google reader going away, then flickr.. why do they keep doing these things to us?

  7. I dream of the day that my work space has that much room! OR the ability to give away fabrics without hurting my stash!

    I just use my blog for posting pictures, and a little of facebook.

  12. I am so jealous of your tidy sewing room! I love your mug rug and would give it pride of place on my desk at work. I could use some cheeriness there! I've continued to use flickr (with some grumbling) and also post photos on Threadbias. I'm liking Threadbias a little more as it is a sewing community and everyone is very supportive/friendly.

  14. This is the only giveaway that I feel a little sad about seeing in my browser. I hope you stop having giveaways soon x

    Anyway, this is supposed to be a distraction (sorry) I am so envious of your sewing room, you wouldn't believe!

  15. I love your craft room - it looks so organized! My problem is I only get short spurts to work so it's often left not cleaned up (I have a toddler) ... but things are getting better.

    I use flickr only as a storage for some of my pictures - otherwise I like to use my blog to showcase my projects.

  16. Adorable mug rug. Love that mermaid. (Who doesn't?) Such a generous offer. I hated the new Flickr at first. Now I really like the new format. It's an easy way to see contact pics and new comments. Plus I like the bigger pictures. I'll stay with Flickr. Too many friends there to leave. I am on instagram too. I have a blog, but don't post much any more. Maybe I'll start that up soon. It would be easier with a pretty new mug rug. ;-D

  17. I usually just post a few pictures when I do a new post on my blog. I have used Flikr and like it, but have not used it for awhile. So, I do not know if I will like the new format or not. I usually do not appreciate it when companies change things and force you to get used to a whole new format when the old one worked just fine.

  18. You know I love me some mendocino!!! I really hate the new flickr and am kinda protesting by not using it much lately. Honestly I'm just kinda not getting online much but protesting the new flickr sounds better... :)
    I hate the reason, but I love your prize this month!! And I'm cleaning my sewing room today. I've been in here for hours cutting scraps so I feel like I've been all industrious but no one else can tell I've done anything in here today!! :/
