Last week, I signed up for Hawthorne Threads newsletter. Yesterday, it was emailed out. I love it when people go out of their comfort zone and try something new. Especially when they're married and still in love after all of what Life slings our way!
To celebrate another married couple's "love birdness"...they're having a giveaway!
First place winner will receive a Firenze Bag Kit. This kit includes a pattern with instructions, fabrics, muslin, cording, color coordinated thread and zipper - all necessary materials except interfacing!
Second and Third Place winners will receive a Fat Quarter set of Girly Girl in Sweet by Patricia bravo.
I just love the orange and pink together!
Sew, hurry on over to
for a chance to win!
Okay...breakfast is eaten and the caffeine is starting to make its way south to be absorbed and redistributed throughout this tired, old, sore body! LOL
Today, I don't feel so behind in everything. We spent the weekend at basketball games and raking our front yard and getting the cars ready for winter.
All the boys pitched in (Javi up after 5 days of the flu) and hubby sweets' dad brought his leaf blower over to help. We live in an older neighborhood with tons of trees! Which I like for picturesque-ness and cooling properties in the summer. But, man o' man...in the fall, I hate trees! LOL
I'm working on Ansje's mini...more winter themed paper piecing!
and a little project that finally proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt...that I am insane!
I am attempting to recreate in fabric, this cross stitch panel. I have this thing for bunnies. I'm almost halfway through the bunny on the left. Using scraps from my scraps. LOL With the squares only ending up measuring 1"x1". Sort of a postage stamp quilt, only of bunnies, a basket of flowers, hollyhocks, a garden gate and birds (more animals I have a thing for...sheesh!).
I understand if you want to stop following my madness now!
But, I'm having a blast!
Happy, snuggly, Indian Summer day to you!
