Silly Me Saturday Giveaway

I was going to call this the "I'm an Idiot Giveaway," but I try to avoid negative self-talk.
But really.

See this?


 And this?


Guess what they have in common?

Yep, I bought them when I already owned them.  When I saw "We Love Color" on several blogs, I couldn't wait for it to hit my LQS, so I ordered it from Amazon.  Then when I saw it at Ruth's Stitchery, I asked them to check the computer to see if I had already bought it.  Umm, their computer doesn't show purchases from Amazon.

And when Carrie showed photos of her new Schnibbles patterns, I completely forgot that I had subscribed to the Miss Rosie's Quilt Company Pattern Club from Fat Quarter Shop.  So I ordered the PDF version of all four of these patterns.

Silly me!  Lucky you!

Two readers will each win one either the book or all four Schnibbles patterns.  To enter:
  • Just leave a comment on THIS post.  It would make me feel better if you told me about something you accidentally purchased in duplicate, but you don't have to.  
  • Be sure to leave your contact info if you're a no reply commenter.
  • International entries welcome.
  • Giveaway ends next Saturday, July 14 at noon, MDT.

Good luck!

  1. Thanks for the chance to win :) I love the patterns :)
    Sometimes I will buy duplicate magazines too.. Me and my sister loves to read a monthly fashion magazine from our local store. We will buy same issue each month. :(

  2. I would love to say I never buy anything in duplicate, but I frequently buy magazines in duplicate; I forget that I have a subscription and buy them from the fat quarter shop, and before the arrive from tree, they come in the mail from my subscription. I have also bought duplicates of books without realizing it until I go to put them in my bookcase (sometimes months after they come home. The schnibbles patterns would be great! I will, however wait to find out if I win them before purchasing them - just so I don't get them twice! kim at peachquilting dot com

  3. That gave me a bit of a chuckle - mmmm I haven't often bought the same pattern or book twice - but I often end up with duplicated threads. Mainly I end up with duplicated lipsticks and nail polishes - its obviously the colour that does it for me!! Thanks Marti for your generosity! My fingers are crossed....

  4. Hehehe - silly you but very lucky us!! I purchased some red fabirc the other day becuase I thought "ooo lovely' and got home to put it away and I already had it in my stash! Whoops! But it is really nice red fabric and I have two swap partners that like red so it will eventually get used! FAB giveaway! Thanks for letting internationals enter :)

  5. Hmm...I used to buy lots of stuff in duplicate, then as I got older I got broker so I don't have that problem anymore :p Thank you for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  6. This cracks me up! I just organized my fabric and found a bunch of fabric in duplicate And it is not just with sewing...iTunes is always having to tell me that I already bought songs! I wish I could be more organized!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Thanks so much for the chance to win - you chose wonderful things to buy twice!! I have definitely been surprised by buying the same fabric twice - oh well... I blame it on my age - ha ha!!!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I buy food all the time when we have plenty. Such as peanut butter. I once had five opened jars and had a sixth I was trying to find room for. Did this all the time till hubby started trying to keep track of what we already have! :-) Thank you so much for the giveaway!

  10. I often buy commercial sewing patterns when they are on sale at Jo-ann's. Many times I come home to find that I already have several copies of the pattern I just bought. I guess the good part of this is I'm consistent in my taste!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Buy things in duplicate? Of course I have done that...mostly with magazines...especially those I have a subscription to (you'd think I would remember which ones I get...but 'NO')!!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Buy things I already have? Many times with fabric, I'm sure. As for quilting books, I have to keep a list on my computer to keep track of what I have. Helpful if ordering online, but not so much when you're at the store! I also do it often with groceries -- you know, take home the coffee and find you already have 2 more in the pantry! But I know I don't have your duplicate book or patterns so I'd be glad to help out!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Off the top of my head, nothing quilty, although I have bought things to replace things that seem to have disappeared in my sewing room! I'd love the Schnibble, since I am participating in AYOS. Oh, I bought a purse pattern and everything to make it. It was for a gift. When I went to make it, of course the pattern was nowhere to be found. It turned up later!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Today I bought duplicate lawn sprinkler parts.. My Mom used to buy the same fabric over and over again. I guess if you like something - you like it every time you see it! (I love to read your blog because you are SO AMBITIOUS!!)

    ReplyDelete
  15. do that way to much myself so i know what you mean thanks for the giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'd love a chance to win. I think that I bought 3 6-1/2 inch rulers.

    ReplyDelete
  17. In the past month, I've bought the same magazine 3 times! (In my defence, they did 2 different covers, so I'm not quite as bad as it sounds.) Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  18. ha! this reminds me so much of my Mom, she sends things in duplicate! She mailed my brother 3 different bottle openers and probably 4 or 5 vegetable peelers for new place! Just kept sending them! I guess she thought they were a really practical gift!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I just did the same with 3 quilt patterns. I guess we all forget what we order. Thanks, Jera

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh boy, hmmm. For me, buying things in double usually happens at the grocery store! Buying things we already have because I think we're out.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I buy purple thread over and over, I dont really know how it happens, but clearly when I look at my thread stash it's a bad habit :)

    b3moon56@hotmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  22. I don't usually buy things in double accidentally, but I have been known to forget if I have something on hand and end up re-buying it to make sure I don't run out. I have a lot of white thread!

    ReplyDelete
  23. LOL! This happens to me more than I care to admit outloud, otherwise dear hubby may hear!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Great giveaway! I have bought duplicates of fabrics, books,
    and I do this at the grocery store, when I don't take a list. Thanks for the chance to win!

  25. I bought the X-Rated Schnibbles, and then the book that has the same pattern. Not exactly the same thing, but I still had an extra. I would love to win the 4 Schnibbles patterns since I do them each month! Thank you for sharing your extra. :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm trying really, really hard to think of a time I double-bought, but I can't come up with anything. Sorry. ;-) I hope this doesn't disqualify me.

    ReplyDelete
  27. That book has been on my list to get, so great giveaway! This has nothing to do with sewing but I frequently buy the same Disney videos for my boy when I see them at the thrift stores

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thanks for the giveaway!! I have bought so many things in duplicate... books, music, gifts for my mom... those last ones are particularly embarrassing, since I never realize it until she opens the same gift I gave her the prior year...

    ReplyDelete
  29. Would really love to win a copy of that book! Now, for what I've bought in duplicates? Hmmmm, many things! Mainly books and movies but a lot of them, and hey they are expensive at times! Thanks for the chance to win!

  30. 21 years ago I appeared in a newspaper feature with my 2 sons, the feature included a fab photo of the 3 of us. So for Christmas presents I got the newspaper to blow up the image as large as they could (it's something like 3' x 2') and had it framed twice - once for my husband and once for my m&d. On Christmas morning presents were handed round and it was instantly pretty obvious what had happened, my Mum had done exactly the same thing and we were now the proud owners of 4 of these framed photos. The silliest thing was that my Dad had been with both of us when we'd visited the newspaper and placed our orders and hadn't thought to say a word!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I haven't bought duplicates very often, unless you count the same shorts in different colors. Thanks for the chance at your generous giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have not purchased the same thing twice, but at work I wrote the same 4 page memo a second time and did not figure it out until I went to save the second draft.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I've bought duplicate books before too! :-) And bought the exact same birthday card for my nephew two years in a row! LOL I also re-watch movies frequently-- unintentionally-- I'll be thinking that "this seems very familiar"== then all of a sudden, I remember "I've watched this before!" Oh well, I think it's just because we lead such busy lives, our brains only keep the really important stuff front and center! :-) Thank you for sharing your "extras" with us! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have many "two-fer's"! I buy double magazines all the time and double books. Oh let's not talk about purchasing the same fabric at shop hops. So believe me you are not alone.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have bought fabric that I forgot I already owned, but that's not REALLY a mistake is it!! Thanks for the wonderful giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh goodness! I've been longing after that book. I once bought the same novel...4 times. Twice in two different airports and then twice at home..Each time I thought I hadn't read it yet.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Something that I accidentally purchased in duplicate are novels,which I gave it to my sister since she loves to read novels too.Thanks for the chance o win.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm always purchasing duplicates! Groceries, books, fabric! You name it...ive probably messed it up somehow. Thanks for turning sharing your duplicates!

    ReplyDelete
  39. If I purchase duplicate fabric that a plus but I hate it when I purchase duplicate yarn especially when I really wanted a different shade of that lavender. I get duplicate magazines sometimes - duplicate books because I am sure that is not the one I have. The raffles at the rabbits shows and various giveaways here love me!

    Thank you because yes the person who wins this is a Lucky us, maybe lucky me!!!!

  40. I am bad about buying duplicates of my favorite movies on dvd!!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I remember one time, long before I started quilting, I came home from a day of shopping and I had purchased the same book twice. I had been to 2 different malls & therefore had gone to 2 different bookstores & purchased the same book in both stores. And yes, I've purchased duplicate copies of quilt books & patterns too. I've also purchased the same fabric a few times. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Duplicates -- oh yes, that is easy to do especially for fabric staples like "solid white" - I just remembered another piece yesterday and of course, dye lots vary so none of the pieces match.
    Either prize would be wonderful to win -- and I know I don't have duplicates of these. Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  43. oh bummer for you ordering duplicates, but so nice of you to share the fun! i've purchased the same fabric before from the same shop & didn't realize until getting it back home that i had gotten a piece in the same colorway!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Well, when I go grocery shopping, I buy stuff I already have ALL the time...I guess a list would help!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I do that all of the time - usually with books. I'll pre-order from Amazon, then also buy it when I see it in the store! Oh well!! Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Já tenho hábito de comprar linhas em duplicatas,então tenho inúmeras cores,4 ou 5 de cada.Tempos atrás comprei uma revista na banca e eu já tinha uma igual.Obrigada.tiacarminhapezzuto@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  47. This is so funny. I usually buy fat quarters and frequently come home and one of my daughters will say- you already have that one mom. I usually reply that I must really like that one. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Oh yes, I have accidentally bought the same book several times- admittedly on one occasion it was because an overseas version had a different title, so I didn't know I had read it, but...

    ReplyDelete
  49. So glad, that you will share your duplicates. Love those patterns and book. I think I have done this a couple of times on groceries, so that wasn't so bad. Thanks again for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Oh, no, you're not the only one to buy duplicates. I've purchased the same fabric twice, three time - even FOUR times. The four-timer was inexcusable. I bought it the fourth time because I thought it was so ugly I couldn't pass it up. Thanks for the opportunity to win. I've heard great things about the book, and you can never go wrong with Schnibbles!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Oh how funny! I have purchased the same print of fabric on several occasions not realizing that I already had it in my stash!

    ReplyDelete
  52. i often buy the same book more than once, because i forgot i read it...

    ReplyDelete
  53. Hi Aunt Marti-

    What a nice thing to do...give these duplicates away to a couple of readers! I used to have a really bad problem buying triple A batteries every time we went to Costco! LOL We seemed to never have them, and i got it stuck in my head for about a year that we needed some every time we visited Costco. Needless to say, I've not needed to purchase any of those sized batteries for quite some time!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. I have bought magazines that I already have subscriptions of. It can be tricky knowing exactly when a new subscription is going to kick in.

  55. Su compra duplicada ,sera una alegría para 2 personas y la oportunidad para que todos entren en el regalo es una alegria para todas .
    Compro siempre hilos que parecen mas claros o mas oscuros ,pero al llegar a casa ,veo que son los mismos que ya tenia.Cariños.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Nice to know I'm not alone in accidentally buying duplicate quilting books and magazines. I usually give them to my sister, telling her I thought she might like this, rather than admitting I was a bit on the silly side and bought it again! On the downside - I was in a bookshop and they had the "Prints Charming" book on sale - I didn't buy it because I was convinced I had it...yep it turns out I don't have it...I'm going back to that shop very soon!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Oh, I just came across two unopened packages of rulers by Fons and Porter, the kind that enable yountomdraw a line down the center of a square and easily make two HST's from it. So I'll be giving one of them to my iece, in a quilting gift bag that is rapidly expanding as I come across surprises in my sewing room.

  58. I mostly duplicate buying patterns. The last one was a fairly expensive pattern was one of the Christmas embroideries.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Marti, I have purchased MANY patterns and books twice...sometimes magazines, too, because I can't remember if I have updated subscriptions!! I usually give the extra's to my mom and it's pretty embarrassing to admit that I purchased duplicates. I keep thinking I will set
    up a list on my phone of all books and patterns I have, but honestly, that would take too much time. I am going to just chalk this up to my old age :)

  61. I have purchased duplicates of Pam Kitty Morning fabric online. I was up north visiting my mom when I ordered and could not remember what fabric from this line was already stashed away.... awolk at rogers dot com

    ReplyDelete
  62. What a cute story but believe me, you are not alone. I have done that on patterns for sure. There was a pattern that I really loved but was debating due to money being tight. But everyone knows if you don't get something that you like when you see it, chances are it won't be there next time. So when it went on sale months later, I bought it. Only to find that I had already bought it! I guess I had accidently-on purpose forgot about the purchase. If asked, I had no memory of buying it. hehe. Actually I've sone the same thing with magazines and food items. That's when I know I really, really like something. Why else would a person buy the same thing twice. hehe.

    Thank you for such a great giveaway and a chance to win. I looked and I don't have the book or patterns you are giving away. ;D

  64. I would love to win the book! How fabulous is that! I have doubled up on buying a few movies for my kids. If I see something at a good price, I'll pick one up and tuck it away in a 'future presents' drawer. There have been more than a few duplicates that end up in our house that way. Oh well, we'll usually tuck them in a present when they're going to a friend's birthday party, no big deal! Thanks for sharing your doubles with us!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I have purchased duplicate fabric before. I had watched this one particular line and bought some charm packs as soon as it came out. It came in the mail and I admired it then put it on my shelf. Some months later it went one sale and I thought to myself, now is the time to buy! Totally forgetting that I had already bought it. Luckily I can do something with the extra fabric. :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. Oh my, I can relate. I cannot recall a time I bought something in duplicate just now, but I do forgetful things all the time. You are in good company.

  67. I have bought some romance books a couple times. The sad thing is that when I was almost done with the book, I realized that I have read it already. I went to go put the book on my shelf. I didn't have one but two other copies of that same book! Haha!

  68. I've been collecting pieces of Kaffe Fassett fabrics in cobalt blue, to make a shower curtain. I purchased two pieces on eBay from a shop in Oregon. About a month later I saw an auction for a remnant from the end of the bolt and bid on it - turned out to be the same shop and most likely the same bolt of one of the first pieces I purchased. Oh well - now I can use it to trim some towels to match. Thanks for the give away, I haven't purchased many patterns so I don't have either one of these yet.

  70. Thank you for the chance to win: I´m sorry for you - but the winner will be lucky! Just a few weeks ago I saw a wonderful wallhanging and bought the e-pattern.

  77. I know I've bought things twice before so many times, but of course now I can't remember quite what... The husband does get panicked if we have less than 2 containers of peanut butter in the house, so that's something I always buy multiples of on purpose!

  80. I've bought quilt magazine issues thinking subscription wouldn't start until the next month and ended up with doubles. Twice.
    Right now I'm on a mission to use things I've purchased and NEVER used. Finally using the stitch-in-the-ditch foot for a quilt as you go project. It's going well! I have the scrapmaster ruler & 1/4 bias maker among gadgets yet to earn their keep :)

    ReplyDelete
  81. Um, yeah. I had to buy a second (and a third, if you can believe it!) seam ripper -- not because I forgot I already owned them, but because I hid them from myself! See what happens when I clean up my sewing area? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  82. Yep. I've definitely done the same thing. I recently purchased a new seam ripper and a mini iron. Then, realized that I had these tucked away in a drawer at home. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I have purchased the same color thread thinking I liked or needed the color, just to find out I already had it. I've also done the same thing with groceries. Thank you for the opportunity.

  84. I just bought an Ez Dresden ruler only to discover that I had one lurking in a cupboard unused! I also bought fabric yesterday that I had purchased from the same shop a couple of weeks ago, but that doesn't really count as a duplicate as you can never have too much fabric:)

    ReplyDelete
  85. Lucky us indeed. Yes, I have done that before,although usually with groceries, I buy what I already have and forget what I need.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Hmm - can't think of anything sewing related, but I did buy my sister the same birthday card 2 years in a row. Hopefully she didn't notice!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I have had to buy duplicates because I have a bad habit of losing mine, or giving them away. Rulers, tape measures, pin cushions. :)

    ReplyDelete
  88. Hi there! Generous giveaway! I will sometimes buy duplicates of birthday gift bags, i'll see them think they're really cute and come to find out when I get home... I have the same one! lol. Have a happy day! xx Holly

  89. I am constantly buying duplicate cuts of Kona solids when they are on sale. I can never remember what I have in my stash and end up buying colors I already have. But that's not necessarily a bad thing I suppose!

  94. I actually buy duplicates of fabric I find particularly pretty or super on sale then find it already in my stash when I go to put the new ones away. The more the merrier!

    ReplyDelete
  95. My husband and I do this all the time at the grocery store. He will go in during the day (he works 2nd shift) and pic some necessities up, and I'll stop after work and pick those same things up. It's happened so many times and we are always like "why didn't you tell me you were going to the store!"

    I haven't done this yet with any sewing stuff but I'm sure it will happen sooner or later!

  96. I often accidently buy duplicates of my favourite chocolate on purpose(I guess that doesn't really count.. )

  97. I have bought a pattern by mistake. Thankfully I was able to take it back and exchange it, although I know they normally don't allow that. I have bought fabric twice before too, on accident I swear!

    ReplyDelete
  98. I'm bad about buying the same magazine twice. I've done it several times now, not too bad on the $6 ones but on the really good ones that are $15 is smarts! I found your blog on the Let's Get Acquainted Hop, I'm impressed with your speed at making tops.

I discovered the blog hop last week and have added it to my list of things to do. I enjoyed the place mat tutorial. I will have to try them when I get back from The Sisters Quilt Show. I am sure to have bought some more fabric from some of the vendors.

  103. Oh no! And yet, hurray for us! I don't think I've made that mistake with quilting things but I do it all the time otherwise. I have two of the same pair of shorts and two of the same pair of pants. They weren't purchased on the same day or anything. I was trying to expand my wardrobe both times and ended up buying the same pair. I guess I really liked them!

    Hymm. Times when I've purchased what I already had? How about a time when a store had a 70% off sale on AccuQuilt products? Well, at least I was able to pass on the deal to others that couldn't make it to the sale. I've also used such purchases for giveaways on my blog.

  107. Just made a set of Placemats. How fun and used up swatches of material that are leftover from other projects. Thank you so much for sharing.
