I'm celebrating!!! For the first time in 24 years, I won't be shopping for school supplies or packing lunches this fall. So, I am participating in the Back to School Blog Hop Party !
There are well over 100 blogs participating, each with a give-away for you to enter.
The Blog Hop Button to the right, will be updated on August 26th. You will find a list of participating blogs there.
This time around, I am giving away my Fruit Cocktail Placemats that I recently blogged about.
They need a good home.
Also, because this is about back to school, how about some fabrics with text on them !
There are 3 quarter meter cuts up for grabs.
Simply leave a comment on this post and I will choose a winner after Sept. 3
I will ship internationally
Enjoy the blog hop : )

Thank you so much for sharing your adorable place mats and those beautiful fabrics! x Teje
What lovely placemats....I have just the spot for them! And the additional fabric quarters are so nice. Thanks for a chance!
I was already in love with those placemats, but that fun 'wordy' fabric really seals the deal. Fun and 'fruitful' in more ways than one. I just dropped my last one off at college last week. They get their own supplies now.
What a great giveaway! We have now left elementary school behnd, but still have middle and high school to go... Thanks for the chance to win!
Congratulations on being school free! I have to say, I kind of miss shopping for school supplies.
Great giveaway Carla! I remember my first year of no kids going back to school. Feels a little strange, but that just leaves more money for buying quilt fabric. lol.
Someone with school age children asked me the other day if I missed back to school shopping, I had to say heck no! It has been 13 years for me!
Thanks for the cute give away, you will have to mail it this time, I can't be there to pick it up! LOL
I must admit when you first posted about your placemats I was hoping you would give them away and I could win them! Love them! And the fabrics, too. Thanks for the chance!
HELLO! SWEET GIVEAWAY!
YOUR PLACEMAT IS ADORABLE>IT'S GIVING ME IDEAS ?
THANKS FOR SHARING!
Does that mean you're not going to be able to buy yourself a new pack of felt tips and some nice notebooks whilst you're 'shopping for school supplies'?!! Gorgeous place mats and fabric - thanks for the chance to win them!
Your placemats are delicious! Lovin' the text prints too. Nice!
Thanks for the chance.
Hooray! No more school supplies which means.... Spend the money on new fabric. And if you are feeling nostalgic store the fabric in the old lunch kits.
I'm with you! for the first time in over 20 years no 'back to school' in our house!
Thanks for a great giveaway!
I'd be celebrating too, 24 years is a long time to be making lunches. I've been making lunches for 10 years so far and habe at least another 9 to go unless uni students want a cut lunch...now I'm depressed thinking about all those sanwiches I have to make, surely I deserve to win, right?
No back to school shopping!!! Combined bliss and a little sad:) shopping for stationary is just about as good as shopping for fabric :). Your fruity placemats are a delight - a perfect reminder that I am heading into spring and leaving winter behind.
thats such a generous giveaway, I would love to give the placemats a good home ☺
Yeah for no more getting ready for back to school! Love those placemats and the fabric. They would look lovely in my new home.
Such a sweet giveaway!! Happy weekend to you! xo Heather
Today we celebrated my youngest grandnieces first birthday! Two grandnieces just returned to school last week (one 7 and one 4), and we are after school sitting two days a week. So far, so good. Love the text fabrics. The placemats could be put to immediate use on our eat-in island. These kids like to eat snacks after school! Thanks for the sweet giveaway.
Those are neat placemats! If I don't win I'll have to make some!
I love your placemats!
Love the placemats. They are neat
I love your placemats, they would look so juicy on my countertop and I also love text fabric. Thank you for the opportunity to go in the draw.

Cute placemats! Perfect for a summer picnic!! :D And this was the first year in my entire life of [51 years] I did not go back to school shopping....my mom was a teacher, we used to go with her shopping, then as a student we shopped, then as a mom we shopped, then as a teacher and wife of a teacher we shopped....but not this year! I no longer am teaching, my children are no longer in school so this year....I celebrated and bought....tada....Fabric!! I didn't even miss back to school shopping. Should I feel guilty about that?

Your placemats are adorable!
Your placemats are beautiful, and i'd love to have something you made in my home.
I love those placemats, AND I have an almost round table! The fabrics look fun too - perfect for a back-to-school reminder! My "baby" graduated from college earlier this year, and there aren't any "grands" yet, so I won't be doing any back-to-school shopping for a while yet - unless I can find a group that's gathering backpacks, etc. for a needy family or two...
I have a round table that would appreciate your hard work ;)
How fun - I love fabrics with words and I still like your placemats!
Those placemats are beautiful!
beautiful placemats and the fabric is great! Thanks for the giveaway!

I love the placemats! The fabric is fun too. I have no children to get ready for school, my youngest is allmost 25 but he learned today that he was accepted in to a Masters In Teaching program and is so excited. I don't think I'll have to take him shopping though.
Your placemats are so pretty and would make any table cheery looking.
I don't have the yearly shopping for school supplies any longer, BUT, I am an office supply addict and LOVE buying them. I love this time of the year as the really fun supplies are on sale for next to nothing so I can stock up on those. Some of those I need are also extremely cheap as well such as the sheet protectors which I use for my patterns I've printed from the different blogs that I want to make.
Thank you for the chance to win your beautiful placemats and the super cute fabrics. Love the words on the fabrics.
