Give Away and Book Circulation

Quite some time ago I won the Give Away of some lovely Dutch fabrics together with the book The Devil's Puzzle. This is a quilt mystery written by Clare O'Donohue. The idea is, to send to book on to the next quilter, who would like to read it. I got it from Stefanie (www.lupineke.blogspot.com)
I didn't have much time to read, but in the end I did. Then it took me some time to decide on the fabric, make a picture, but .....finally I managed!


I selected three vintage Greek fabrics, which I bought in an old shop in Kalamata. Here are some pictures of the shop.


I buy a lot of material in this shop. This is all very old stock. Most of the fabrics have a width of 80-90 cm!

So, whoever would like to read the book, send it on, and get these fabrics, should leave a  comment and then they will take part in the lottery. The winner will be announced on the 30th of June. Until that date you can participate. 

In the meantime, I finished this table runner. This one is completely made of fabrics I bought from old stock in Greece.

Wat een heerlijke winkel om stofjes te zoeken en kopen. De tafelloper is mooi geworden. Wat een leuke verloting, lief dat je er ook stofjes bij hebt gedaan. Aangezien ik ermee begon (het boek), loot ik niet mee hoor! Ik wens je er vast veel plezier mee! groetjes, Conny

I love your table runner. It's very pretty. That is awesome to have a whole shop of vintage fabrics. I wish I could find such a thing here.

I love the bags you made shown in your banner! What an interesting give away... The tale of the traveling book! Your table runner is quite lovely, too. Fresh and springy!

Wat heerlijk om zo'n winkel vol stoffen in je buurt te hebben... Jij gebruikt altijd mooie stoffen in je quilts. Je tafelloper is ook weer prachtig. Aan de verloting doe ik niet mee, omdat ik alleen maar naar quilten kijk en verder niet.. Je hebt wel mooie stofjes uitgekozen om weg te geven.
Groet, Willemien.

Wat een leuk idee van het boek, maar ik loot niet mee omdat ik dit werk niet doe.
Ik vind je tafelloper een plaatje!

Lieve groet,
Gerry
