Studio Makeover, Part One--& a Giveaway!

One of my New Year's resolutions was to remodel my studio. Over the last 10 days, I have repainted the walls a light yellow and purchased new furniture from Ikea. I spent the last two days alone, just going through all my stash!! I am exhausted! Here's another shot from a different angle:
As you can see, I've still got a lot of work to do:
New lighting
Window treatments
Decorate the walls
Find a better sewing chair
But I am loving it so far! Everything is organized (for now!). I got rid of a lot, and am planning on putting some things up on eBay. I have the Moda "Piece & Plenty BOM" to sell. I only did the first block. So if any of you are interested in purchasing it, send me an offer! I will also be listing on eBay a "Dandelion Girl" jelly roll.
I also have 2 complete Fig Tree charm packs (I think its Dandelion Girl, but I'm not sure, because I removed the packaging), a couple of Moda U tins (they have materials and instructions for one block, plus a pattern for a whole quilt), and a whole mess of Moda flannel that I started cutting in to squares to make a rag quilt (I think its Northwestern Flight. I also have about 4 yards backing). Sooo....how about a giveaway? I'll divide it into 2 prizes: the charm packs and Moda U tins, and the 'manly' flannel. To win, just make a comment on this post between now and midnight Friday night. Good luck!
