Renovation Giveaway #5 - Strips... (Winner Announced)

Life has been busy here lately with quilting, cleaning, painting and some cat training (which is not going well!)  I had intended to start this giveaway earlier, but blogging and computer time have suffered from a lack of time.

Just as I found that I wasn't using my collection of charm squares, I'm finding the same is true of my 2.5" strips.  So I'd like to find a new home for them.  I've been collecting them for years - some have come from swaps and others from the scraps at the end of a project.  You can see that I obviously favor some colors over others.  FYI - Although the strips will go to a new home, I'm going to keep the containers!

Collection of 2.5" strips
Yellows and Purples
Neutrals and Pinks
Oranges and Reds
Batiks and White/Blacks
Christmas, Blues and Greens
If you're interested in winning them, just leave a comment below.  (Sorry, but due to shipping costs, this giveaway is open to US addresses only.)  I'm not sure yet how long I'll leave this open.  It'll be a surprise to both you and me and probably depends on how busy I continue to be.

9/10/13 - Congratulations QueenB!  I've sent you an email.
