How do you win this lovely?
Leave me a comment with one of your favorite quotes. From a movie, a great philosopher, a child, someone in history...whoever! I just love to read great quotes. I'm anxious to hear what you got!
I'll draw a winner Friday 4th.

Here's one of my favorites (and I have no clue who it's by):
"The wonderful thing about the game of life is that winning and losing are only temporary unless you quit."


  1. I've never even seen this fabric line before! I LOVE IT! Wouldn't I love it?!!

    A quote, "I like nonsense. It wakes up the brain cells. -- Dr. Seuss

  2. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. I'm so sentimental! Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. You have a wonderful disposition to be celebrating one month down. I think being the spouse of one deployed has to be the hardest job in the world!
    I should probably try to come up with a great philosophical quote, but the one I love & use occasionally is "Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore"

  4. I agree - you have a tough, tough job. And you handle it with so much grace!

    My favourite quote is from Helen Keller: "Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadows."

  5. Wow! So, generous! Glad to celebrate with you that you are one month closer to getting hubby home. I can't imagine what I would do without mine for 7 months!
    I'm on a serious Gilmore Girls binge right now, and I can't get the nonsense quotes out of my head. So, here you go: "Il eck nostra, doska don." It's a reference to Anne Heche speaking an alien language and it makes me laugh so hard. Oh well, sorry if that made no sense!

  6. "Why not go out on a limb, that's where the fruit is!" -Mark Twain. I think this is who you are: generous, optimistic, creative! Thanks for the chance to win.

  7. If you want to be happy, be. -L.Tolstoy
    Thank You for the giveaway fun.

  8. "That's correct Wendy, we all wear masks, metaphorically speaking."

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  9. Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. -Albert Einstein

    I love this line of fabric and don't see a lot of it. Thank you for the giveaway.

  10. The grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.
    Allan K. Chalmers

    Great fabric range!

  11. As "ruffly" as it can get....."Do or Do not, there is no try" - Yoda.

    Congrats on 1month! In the submarine community deployments are classified, and we are not allowed to tell anyone how long its been, or how long we have left to go. The really funny thing is, is when the 2yo is telling everyone in the Commissary "Daddy -Two Weeks" "daddy- Two weeks"...etc etc. You just have to hope no one important is listening, lest they change the date.

  12. I love your little blog!!! It is so fun to see all of your amazing projects!! As far as a fun quote - Never Mess with Success!!

  13. "Sometimes I come up with some pretty good quotes. Then I think, what idiot goes around quoting herself?"

  14. Oh my goodness, I've been sitting here for 15 minutes just trying to decide which quote to use, I have a few. I love the colors in that fabric, and the patterns, gorgeous and soothing. Soooooo....... How about, 'Life is like an onion, you peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you cry'. I don't know who it's from. And can I just throw in, 'MAN is in the forest Bambi.'. I like to say that at work when things get tense.

  15. "Charlie bit me and it really hurts!"

    From that viral Youtube video.

    Thanks for the nice giveaway! ;)

  16. What beautiful fabric! Thank you for being so thoughtful!

    A quote that I've always thought very wise is this...
    Use it up,
    Wear it out,
    Make it do,
    Or do without!

    This helps me when I want to spend more than I should...I really need to remember to be content with what I have. =)

  17. What a nice giveaway. Thank you.
    Here is a quote a saw on a blog recently:
    Decisions determine our destiny. -Thomas S. Monson-

  18. Very pretty!
    "Go, than-there are other worlds than these" - John "Jake" Chambers (The Dark Tower)

  19. I am sorry that he will be leaving soon. It will be hard. Thank you for the give away. I really do like reading each and everone of your posts. Saying: Forrest Gump: My momma always said, "Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."

  20. From my then 6 yr old when asked what he wanted to be when he grows up? Without hesitation "RICH"

  21. More fun, more fun people....

  22. When my daughter was in the NICU for her first 4 days of life, the sign over her bed was "Each new day is a beautiful adventure." It has always stuck with me.
    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  23. people always seems to question me when i tell them that my name is Claire...there's nothing wrong with my name and i love it, mainly because i was named after my grandpa, that's right people, i said GRANDPA, his name was clair eugene, take the e from eugene and add it to the end of clair and you have CLAIRE.

    So this can only lead to my favorite quote from one of my favorite movies......

    "Yeah know it's a fat girls name...those that were born fat and those that were once skinny and became fat"

    Original by the "Breakfast Club"
    Claire Standish: Claire. It's a family name.
    John Bender: Oh, it's a fat girl's name.
    Claire Standish: Oh, thank you.
    John Bender: You're welcome.
    Claire Standish: I'm not fat.
    John Bender: Well not at present, but I can see you really pushing maximum density. See I'm not sure if you know this, but there are two kinds of fat people: there's fat people that were born to be fat, and there's fat people that were once thin but became fat... so when you look at 'em you can sorta see that thin person inside. You see, you're gonna get married, you're gonna squeeze out a few puppies and then, uh...

    Thank for the great giveaway!

  24. Gorgeous fabric! I've just recently run across this quote and keep coming back to it . . . "she glances at the photo, and the pilot light of memory flickers in her eyes." Frank Deford

  25. Great giveaway!
    "...if you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all" (My Mum!!)

  26. Love this fabric! Living with an autoimmune disease for 13 years now I found this quote early on and took it to heart:

    "Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional."

    I live by it!!!
    Have a great day!

  27. Thanks for the chance to win.
    I came across the following in an article about Susan Sarandon - she has this tattooed on her wrist

    Abraham Lincoln

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  31. When I'm feeling full of sass, I love to repeat this line from The Wizard of Oz:

    "Who would have thought a good little girl like you could destroy my beautiful wickedness?"

  32. Thanks for the giveaway. "Regret the things you do, not the things you don't do"

  33. This is so pretty!! Thank you!!

    my quote: Reach for the moon, if you fall short, you'll still be among the stars. Sorry, I don't know who originally said this :(
