What's it Going to Be?

CLARIFICATION: Which Thursday is the contest ending??? Well let's make it Wednesday, October 7th at midnight.

Seven days and counting. Remember in my last blog I said that I had to design my booth and usually that would involve building or painting something. Well, it seems not only are we going to build something but we will also have to paint it. Can you guess what we are going to build?


These are your clues.
(the boards behind the bike are part of the clues)
We are going to take these various items and make them into something for my booth.
Can you guess what it is going to be?




Guess right and you have a chance to win one of these.

If there is more than one person guessing the right answer, (which I am sure there will be - it's pretty obvious) a drawing will take place.
The contest ends Wednesday, October 7th at midnight.
I will reveal what we have made after we place the item in our booth.
I will be updating my blog during market - so stayed tuned.


We have been too busy to empty the trash.
It doesn't smell so who cares?



Sandy K. stitching on some pillows.
My floss box is the one on the right - hers is on the left and center.
Gee I wonder why she prefers to bring her own floss.
(Really who has time for such silliness???)



Lois - just about done with one binding and then on to the next.



Seven more days to go and we have only have
3 items in the DONE pile. :-(
The pressure is on.

We will see some of you soon - way too soon.
From my heart,
Sandy

  1. I would be more than happy just to receive the scraps of fabric that are in your bin! Holy cow that would be a great prize too!

    I think you're going to create some type of trolly for that bike, perhaps an old fashioned stand that can be hauled around.

  2. I will guess a park setting with a picket fence and/or swing! Would love to win your giveaway and have fun at Market. Will be looking forward to your posts from Houston!!!

  3. Can I just have the trash bin that is overflowing??? :o
    I am thinking on your booth design.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I'm not to good at guessing- but here goes. You are going to have a frog riding the bike and jumping over a gate. I know- pretty far out.

    ReplyDelete
  5. well, I don't see how it is very "easy" to guess, but I will give it a go.

    The iron thingy in front looks like legs to me, then the bicycle. So maybe a frog riding a bike? And the boards are for shelves?

    Yea, really, I don't have a clue...

    ReplyDelete
  6. Hmmm... what could it be?? Some kind of ramp for the bike. I really don't know, I guess it is not that obvious to me. Maybe a table. I think I will have to wait to see it at market. But I am loving your fabric and oh that garbage, now that is something I would just love to have in my hands!!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Hmmm...I'm not a good guesser at all! A bike rack? No clue...but your giveaway is a good one!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Will it be a whatanacallit or thingamabob? Just kidding! I think its going to be a flower cart.
    Thanks for a chance at your giveaway. Love all your fabric designs.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Love the new line...would it be a cute picket fence??? It would be really cute all painted for your booth?!

    ReplyDelete
  10. maybe a wagon to have the bike pull or a garden gate with flower boxes

    ReplyDelete
  11. My guess would be a wagon behind the bike????

  12. Maybe a table of some sort? I can't wait to see it in action!! Good luck and have fun at market.

    ReplyDelete
  13. All I have to say is this...if that is your trash pile...boy would I love to be your trash person. What a fun scrap pile that would be to do something with. I love the giveaway fabrics too! But I don't have the foggiest what you are doing for your booth with a bicycle, boards, and metal.
    I cannot wait for your new stuff to come out! Where I can get a hold of it...

    ReplyDelete
  14. my guess is...
    a picket fence in front of the freshly painted bike that houses a cute little basket/box overflowing with your new precuts.

    p.s. your "trash" pile would make a SUPER cute string quilt!!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I think you are going to build a fence and use the wood behind the bike to build a garden gate. Then paint the bike and the fence and lean the bike against the fence.

    Your new fabric is wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  16. A Fabric Chariot! Do you know what that is?? It is a beautiful wooden basket/wagon thingy attached by brackets to a bicycle to hold fabric.

    I love reading about all the market preparations. The quilt that is next in line for Lois to bind (with the owl) looks so fun!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Obvious huh? Beadboard, bicycle, wooden pallet and carved pieces from an old dresser mirror along with paint..... What can you build with that to frolic? I'm stumped.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Not sure why you think this is easy. Guess I'm just not very creative. Maybe a bicycle with a frog riding in the style of ET, inside a flower box? Oh, I'm hopeless at this! Have fun at Market

    ReplyDelete
  19. You're definitely going to build a park bench with a bicycle parked in front of it, ready to pull a picnic basket out and eat lunch on a quilt spread on the grass!

    I would also like to have your scrap bin!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Well, you are more clever than you thought. It's not really that obvious to me but is the bike going to be pulling a cart/wagon? Great giveaway and I really enjoy your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Easy??? I say "Fun and Frolic" in country style.

    Don't empty the trash bid, just box it up and send it to me. I see string quilts there.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think you're going to take all of those supplies and make a wagon and fill the wagon with your fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I was thinking if you were going to simulate a junky garage somehow, just come over and take mine - please! The sewing looks like fun, and the fabric is like everything else you do - fun and terrific.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm not a good guesser, but maybe you want to redesign your backyard with this old bicycle and a big wooden flower case?
    ehm...do you really want to throw away all the yummy and delicious strips??? Let me clean your sewing room, I would love to empty this trash, and..could start playing and recyce them like the funny figure Oscar from Sesam Street...lol...what a magic treasure garbage!....

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wow my only guess is a Mary Poppins like flight of the bicycle somehow with all that material you have . . . . ha ha, now that I write that out it doesn't seem close at all. Oh well I gave it a shot. Enjoy the market!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm guessing a picket fence with the bike in front, kind of a spring silhouette. A basket on the bike filled with quilted flowers or small pillows or some type of samples. I LOVE frolic! I must ,ust must have that fabric!
    I have designed a halloween stitchery quilt using gobble gobble-it turned out so cute! Come and see!

  27. I think that you're going to make a cart to be pulled behind the bike...overflowing with the new fabric line! Those brackets/corbels are GORGEOUS! If they need a new home after market, let me know!

    ReplyDelete
  28. This collection looks darling! Can't wait to get my hands on it! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'll gladly "take out" your trash. I'll come to Algona today to do it for you! I'm afraid whatever you're building isn't as obvious as you think. I'll guess a garden gate of some kind with the bicycle leaning on it. I love your your new line of fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Whew! I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought that looked like a frog trying to ride a bike! Ok, so I enlarged the picture and still have no idea what the booth will look like - I'll just have to see it in person next week! Looking forward to Market very much - a lot or work and a lot of fun! Safe travel!

    ReplyDelete
  31. From what I hear, your booth is always a stand out!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm thinking a little wagon pulled by the bike--this is not as easy as you would lead us to believe! And your "trash" is all of our treasure!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Spring, summery fabric, bicycle -- I would say an old fashioned white porch with scrollwork from the rusted piano leg looking things painted white, spiffed up bike in one of the colors from the fabric -- whatever it is, it will be adorable I'm sure. How about a giveaway of the scraps to the second place winner! Oh my, what I could do with those!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I think it will be a wagon pulled by the bike filled with the new fabric.
    Please let me come take your trash out for you, I promise not to miss even the smallest piece

    ReplyDelete
  35. There are some good ideas...my first guess was some kind of bike rack. But I'm also liking the fence idea too. I agree, can the rest of us non winners have a chance to win a few of those scraps?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Sandy, That looks like it will be a fun display. Will it be a dog riding the bike? :-) Thank you for offering this wonderful give-away. Your fabrics are gorgeous.

    I would love to get the trash in your sewing room. Our church has a Hugs Ministry that makes quilts and pairs them with stuffies. We then give them to the local fire and sheriff's departments for kids in crisis situations. I have recently introduced the ladies to string quilts and they are having a ball. Every couple of weeks I show them a different layout and off they go again.

    Take care and God bless, Cory

  37. I think you are going to create a flower cart stuffed with your wonderful fabric! Becky

    ReplyDelete
  38. Whatever it is, I know I will want it!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I don't really see how this is easy to guess, but I'll give it a shot;-)
    They do look like frog legs in the front, but I think maybe a sleigh with the wood slats or a wagon being pulled behind the bike?
    I don't really have a clue,lol:-D
    I'd love your "trash" too! That would make a sweet strip quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  40. my guess is a bike sitting next to a fence with a picnic table in the background

    ReplyDelete
  41. i would say a horse drawn buggy, i mean a bike drawn buggy overloaded with yummy fabric, yep, that is my guess, and i hope it's not far off!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I'm glad I'm not the only one that doesn't see the obvious. LOL. And I would bet that if you put your trash bucket as a Give Away, you'd break ALL give away records for the amount of entries. LOL. Good luck getting everything done for market! Can't wait to see what you do with the bike.

    ReplyDelete
  43. My suggestion is to empty the trash into a giveaway!! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm not sure, but the thing in front looks like a set of hips and legs. A person standing in front a bike in front of a fence? That's a tough one!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Ok, I am guessing a pretty table.

    Lizzie

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'm guessing a replica of one of the Wright Brothers' early planes.

    And I'll get in line for the trash can tidbits....

    ReplyDelete
  47. Looks like the makings for a fabric picnic! Basket to tote on the bike, overflow with fabric left and right. :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. I can hardly wait to see what your booth looks like at market...it is usually one of my favorites! Love your new line of fabric!!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. My first thought was a bike shed, but I don't think you have those here in the US. So I;m thinking some sort of a cart or wagon behind the bike.

    ReplyDelete
  50. A potting bench with pots filled with charm squares on sticks for flowers? I don't know. :) Whatever it is, it will be cute. You can't beat old bead board, bikes and wood.

    ReplyDelete
  51. There are lots of good guesses! I think it's going to be a fence to use at Market. Love the new line! But, then again, I love pretty much everything you do.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Mom I have no idea what your making; however, whats up with the HUGE orange calculator?! Oh and I want some of the new fabric!!! HUGS1

    ReplyDelete
  53. Bicycle basket filled with "Frolic" fabric, a table covered in "Frolic" fabric and a pallet piled high with "Frolic" fabric. I have no idea.

    Would love to win, would love the trash heap as well.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Looks to me like a little red wagon loaded with quilts being pulled by the bike! Gee - I would even enter for the bin scraps - LOL!
    Cheers!

    ReplyDelete
  55. A market...like a farmer's market or a flower market? You could just give a runner up that trash bin as a prize. I'm sure someone would be so happy! tee-hee :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. I think the picket fence setting idea is really cute but my initial guess was a stand for the bike with a picture frame setting around it... thus the trim boards in front :) can I guess both? It looks like fun! I can't wait to see it completed! Good luck with such wonderful help you'll have that done pile filled in no time!

    ReplyDelete
  57. LOVE your new fabric. Cheery as always. And the colors! Love the wools too. I'm going to guess a bike pergula/fancy shed/bikeport. I have a bike like that on my wish list, but without the duct tape.

    ReplyDelete
  58. This is my first time to your blog and it has been a great place to visit. LOVE the new fabric line, so cheerful. Iguess you are making a cart to pull behind the bike?? I'd just like your scrap can.....Happy Marketing!

    ReplyDelete
  59. My guess is a stationary bike - the 2 furniture legs holding the bike upright- sitting on a platform (the wood behind) with a little cart ( the bead board wood). I don't see any wheels for the cart!!!

  60. Sandy,
    Have a great time at Market! I am sure your booth will look amazing as usual. I will be thinking about you. I hate missing all the fun, but not all the work and stress!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I know it's after the deadline but I just want to see if I'm right. I think you are going to do a lemonaid stand (kinda like Peanuts Lucy's Psychiatric Help stand) with the bike propped against it

    ReplyDelete
  62. It looks like someone is going to be riding a bike and pulling a cart?

    I love your trash! I'm more than willing to stop by and take it out for you :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. I'm thinking maybe a flower cart, with the old bike and the frog. And old timey kinda pic! Will be beautiful!

    Hugs,

  64. A cute (and brightly painted frog...to match the bright frolic line of fabric) riding a bicylce. Of course everything, including the fence will all be brightly painted. I visualize a festive summer feel, that will call people into your booth.

    Umm...perhaps the trash bin should also be a prize!

  65. Hi, the thought that came to mind was very ecological ie, recycling? Going green, or producing a cycle powered generator for your sewing machines. OK, this is nonsense, I know but it was my first thought. The pallet are often used for making compost bins but you cant compost fabric down..... but you can recycle it :-) Then a beach hut came to mind, but I can only guess that the bike would be propped up against it....
    Have fun building it, whatever it is.

  66. Sadly last night I had a dream that involved this giveaway and I started to think that maybe that bike would be on a peir, perhaps thats where the wood would come in, I still think evrtything will be so bright and festive! I am loving wat we can see of the frolic line and cant wait to get my little fingers on it!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I'm thinking that your display will be a flower cart being pulled by the bike. Inside the cart will be cheerful blooming flowers accented with fabric flowers made of your new Frolic line. I love your latest designs!!!

    ReplyDelete
  68. A retro-style lemonade stand? Love the fabric line!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I'm thinking a bike with a trailer / cart thingy behind (or perhaps in front) - a bicycle flower cart!! Oh, I can't wait to see a picture of your stall at The Market - and I'm with some of the other commenters, I'd be happy to rifle through the contents of your scrap bin!!

    ReplyDelete
  70. I guess you are building a fabric cart, similar to a flower cart. The question is: will the cart be in front of the bike or behind - or will you just use the wheels from the bike for a stand-alone trailer type cart. Whatever it is I am certain it will look perfect once put together, painted and loaded up with your beautiful "Frolic" line of fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hmmm. . . What could the booth be? My guess is something to do with the theme of your new line Frolic. Whether it's frog or something else riding the bike. Basically have fun "frolicking" in the sunshine.

    I also agree with many other of the posts - I'd be happy to empty your trash bin for you! :) Your fabrics lines are the best!

    Jeanette

    ReplyDelete
  72. Are you really throwing away the scraps? I would totally take them off your hands!
    I think you are making a bike jump and letting booth visitors try it out. Anyone who can make it across your booth wall wins. Am I close? Ha ha.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I think it will be a cart full of those beautiful flower pillows that I saw your seamstress making. And the bike will be pulling the cart. Can't wait till spring and your new line.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Could it be a "Frolic" in the park, or something like that since that's the name of your new line?

    ReplyDelete
  75. I'll guess a flower stand or potting bench type prop. I'm sure it will be cute as the fabric. Good luck at market!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I think it is going to be a cart being pulled by the bike with a frog "driving". Your beautiful products will be showcased in the cart.

    ReplyDelete
  77. So fun to read your blog and nice to read all the recognition you give your staff. Very funny the true to heart.
