The February De-stash Giveaway is now open…..

I can't believe it's February already. Another month- another De-stash Giveaway up for grabs. This month- winning will be open to US residents only. However- anyone can comment!
Here is a peek at some of the things in the February package that could be yours.

The February challenge question up for your comments: If you could invite anyone, living or not, to lunch, who would it be and why???

Details for the 2012 Monthly Giveaway:

I will post a photo of the give-away each month during the first week of the month- so check back often, so you don't miss out.

You will have until the 21st of each month to leave a comment.

Leave only one comment per person.

I will pick a winner and get your package in the mail by the 25th of each month (postal holidays and weekends excepted). (Make sure you don't fall in to the no-reply blogger category- if I can't get you I'll pick someone else).

I know some of my followers are outside the USA. Because international postal rates abroad are much more expensive I will be doing international mailings only a few times during the year (these are big packages and costly to send). Please know- I haven't forgotten you and appreciate your following me- I really do. So, I will specifically post whether the monthly destash-give-away is open to international entries on any given month.

Thanks for all your support and good luck in 2012! Remember 11 chances remaining to win this year- Go for it!!!


  1. living or dead, huh? i think i'd like to have lunch with Einstein, the young 40s Elvis, and Da Vinci. i think that would make for very interesting conversation...especially between Einstein and Da Vinci. Elvis would be purely eye candy :)

  2. My uncle! He never had kids and loved us all like we were his own. He passed away unexpectedly so I'd love to have lunch with him.

  3. I guess I'd like to have lunch with my maternal grandmother who I never met, since she passed away when my mother was nine, and I'm named after. She was a Polish immigrant to Brazil, and I would love to have known her. What a great giveaway!

  4. I'd ask Katherine Hepburn...she was a fascinating person,a woman who refused to be condescended to in an era where most women were not encouraged to be as outgoing and confident as a man, and I think a conversation with her would be amazing. :-)

  5. I'm answering the question, but I'm not putting my hat into be picked because I won last month (super awesome box of goodies!). But I would pick my Grandpa. He was a really great and creative guy and I was too young to ask questions about his life or family or what it was like when he was a kid. He was a carpenter and when he got older he built furniture and my grandma would paint it. He was so great and I never appreciated him when he was alive. Too bad we don't know these things when we are kids. I also would have him teach me to build furniture (of course). What a great question Steph!

  6. I would like to have lunch with Alex Anderson. There are many quilters I would really like to meet, but I pick Alex for this one because she has such deep and broad knowledge of so many types of quilting - from tradational to modern. I would love to just talk with her about quilts, fabrics, styles, colors, and all aspects of quilting.
    Great giveaway.

  7. Right now, i have been missing my grandmother who passed away 2 years ago. I hadnt seen her in 8 years when she passed, and prior to that i was with her all the time. As a mother, i have so many questions for her. With her gone, i so badly want to know things about her i never got to ask. I know she had quilts, but did she quilt? I knew she sewed as she made me amazing dresses, could she teach me? So much. My heart has been thinking of the what ifs, couldas, and shouldas. I would so badly give anything to have lunch with her.

    FYI... if by some odd random chance i win, dont ship to me! Just bring it! :)

  8. I would like to have lunch with my husband's later father. He died when my husband was 7 years old. I have heard so many wonderful things about him that I would like to meet him.

  9. Oh gosh! It would be my Daddy who passed 11 years ago. He was my best friend and the life of the party. It would be nice to be a daughter for a while. :)

  10. I'd like to have a chat with an ancestor of my past who grew up in a totally different time period - like turn of the century or ancient times. To sit and eat with somebody who is like me but of another era; that would be fascinating.

  11. Hmmm. it would be wonderful to have lunch with my grandfather! He died when I was 17, and he was so loved. But, also, I have just finished reading The Help. I would love to have lunch with Rosa Parks! Now that would be an experience of a life time!

  12. Oh, for me it would definitely be Marie Curie. Having lunch with one of the pioneering female scientists...oh goodness, I would totally be nerding out. :)


If you don't speak up, I won't know what's in your mind…….
