I don't think I have anything in common with Joel. I hate to mow the lawn and my first car was a PINTO!! Still I love his fabric.

Melinda Kiefer said...

My first car was an '86 Chevette!

I'm the second of 7 too!

Hey you guys.... I love the goonies! I love the patterns left in the grass when other people mow it. I love rainy days (it's supposed to be storming here and it hasn't happened yet, still waiting) I love Joel's designs (that wasn't on the list but I'm sure he likes them too)

I love The Goonies! I watch it every chance I get, even if I catch it in the middle of the movie.

re#5- I also love Goonies, and my grandmother is from the town where it takes place: Astoria, OR. We used to spend our summers there when we were kids.

Allison CB said...

I like the Goonies tooo and my Mum taught me creative mowing!

Cory said...

I love rainy days also. Curled up under a quilt, watching a good movie is a favorite thing to do on a rainy day. Thank you for the chance to win some beautiful fabric. Take care and God bless, Cory

Jessica said...

I've never (ever) mowed the lawn and my first car was a 79' Malibu, but I do love rainy days as long as I don't have to go anywhere!

Linda said...

I've never seen the Goonies ( I know, oh horror!). I'd love to tour New Zealand, by helicopter or otherwise. I do love Joel's fabric though and I currently have some set aside for a special project.

Robin said...

I think the only thing I have in common with Joel is that we both come from big families.

Nancy said...

I love rainy days too!
(My first car was a Cor......
Vair!!!)

Aha! I am the second eldest of seven kids, and have spent a lot of time in the back country of NZ, just not in a helicopter. I wonder why he was visiting? Tramping? Heli-skiing? Thanks for the giveaway. Tarnia.hodges at gmail.com

Susan Gold said...

I LOVE rainy days! I tend to see even more. Or, iron and refill fabric just because it is fun!

Jane said...

I love rain, especially! stormy or quiet drizzles, it's all wonderful!
I am crazy for your fabric designs! I dream of covering the cushions of my wicker set with your fabric!
Thank you for a chance to win some!

Kristen said...

I live near Joel Dewberry in Utah and agree with both #8 and #9!

Goonies is a pretty great movie, ive passed it down to the next generation (my children) also falconry would be a skill to have, especially if there is ever a form of apocalypse you could have note sender/ small animal hunter/eye in the sky type relationship with your bird 😉

Amanda Burgos said...

Sadly, i have heard of none of those bands.

I too love rainy days- a good excuse to stay in and curl up with a good book and a cup of tea, or spend more time sewing! Thank you for the opportunity to win some gorgeous fabric! Patti (pattimamaATgmailDOTcom )

Nan said...

I'm a Chevette "survivor" too! Mine tried to kill me when it died on a hill on the highway outside of San Francisco! Love, love, love Joel's fabrics!!

Montie said...

Rainy days are few and far between here in Arizona and I love them too..... Also love Joel's fabrics.

rachel said...

Goonies never say die! And I had the best nap of the year today while it rained so hard that I couldn't see past my front porch!

nettiejdear said...

I am an excellent wrapper of boxes! I love rainy days. If they're somewhere I am not! My first car was a pinto. I did have a chevette years later, though!! I love Joel's esthetic - his fabrics are fab!!!

Gina said...

My husband's favorite movie is Goonies.

Creative Reveries said...

I like rainy days when I can stay at home and stitch or curl up with a good book. Excited about Joel's new line. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Lindsay said...

I also love rainy days! And I'm also the second oldest... from a family of two children. :)

Virginia said...

I love rainy days...and rainy nights. If it's raining, I have to have my window cracked enough to listen to it, no matter how cold it is outside. I haven't toured New Zealand by helicopter but I have toured Kauai by helicopter. And, Joel, if you're really interested in falconry you will know the name Jim Nelson. I worked in the same office with him for a few years. So, we do have a few things in common, including a love of fabric for quilting.

Kit Kabboord said...

Love pattern making while mowing the grass! And Joel's fabrics!!

Rainy days are the best days. Its a good excuse to stay inside and sew with some of Joels fabric. Im from New Zealand, and Ive flown over some of our beautiful country in a helicopter, even got dropped off in on of the national forests by helicopter for a week. - Louise lu.missen@gmail.com

jessica cornelius said...

I'm obsessed with rainy days, and everyone thinks I'm crazy because I would rather have the rain than the sun.

Abbey said...

I love rainy days! Living in Arizona they are so few and far between, they are so refreshing!

Sonya said...

Given the opportunity, I'd love to learn falconry too.

laurelcoe said...

I would love to tour New Zealand but I haven't had the chance yet. I like rainy days but only because we don't have too many of them!

Elizabeth Ray said...

I love rainy days too. Great days to relax inside and get in some sewing! Can't wait for the new collection.

Jenny said...

I remember liking Goonies as a kid too. I watched it with my 9 year old daughter and she said it was the scariest movie she has ever seen!!, WHAT???? Rainy days rock

Katie said...

I also love rainy days and I like to think I'm an awesome beatboxer. I mean, I'm probably not, but I like to think I am. :)

I love Rainy days, coming from the bay area part of California I used to have them so much and miss that I don't have them as many at all in arizona. I love disney and have been to disneyland so many times I've decided I'm going to get a disneyland yearly pass as well as visit disneyworld soon with some of my best friends

annethel said...

I also love rainy days. I have no idea what falconer was. I had to google it. I think that would be pretty awesome too.

Alyx Gillett said...

I live in New Zealand, where Joel has toured! Excellent holiday choice! I also love rainy days and if I could have any car it would be a '76 'vette (Corvette Stingray!) 😊 Just love this line!!

Laurie Matthews said...

The only thing we have in common is that we both come from big families. The beat boxing thing cracks me up though: my son attended a beat boxing performance and drove us all crazy for the next several months as he attempted to beat box constantly!!!

hydeeannsews said...

i love rainy days, too! that was at the bottom of the list and i was getting worried that i didn't have anything in common with joel until we got down there. lol. i use his fabrics a lot, so that's maybe something we have in common, too? hiselegant and beautiful prints put him in my personal top 5 favorite designers category!

Daniela Glassop said...

I love music and can often be found dancing in the kitchen. I love rainy days as they are an excuse to stay indoors and paint, draw or make things from fabric.

I love listening to music and can often be found dancing in the kitchen while cooking. Rainy days are a good excuse to stay indoors and draw, paint or make things, usually from fabric. I have been to New Zealand and been inspired by it's beauty.

YV said...

I love rainy days, too! I am most creative on these days! Love Joel's fabric..just made a quilt using his Birch line!

Laura said...

I love rainy days too. Can look outside and watch and feel all cozy inside. Also love the sound of it bouncing on the roof.

KaHolly said...

I like to mow the lawn, too. I never approach it the same way! And rainy days? A favorite of mine because I can sew guilt free if it's raining!

betz2u said...

I love rainy days and nights. Love to work on quilts when it is raining.
