Of course not sewing doesn't mean that I'm not out there reading my blogs...and entering some great contests...
The other day I was lucky enough to win one... Little Lady Patchwork is a great blog..Stefanie has been featured on Moda Bake Shop, she writes wonderful blog posts and is very inspiring... A couple of weeks ago she did a great interview with Melanie of Above All Fabric and Melanie was nice enough to offer a FQ bundle of PURE by Sweetwater for Moda... Yes..you read that right..a FQ BUNDLE!! As in a lot of fabric...
Guess who won? Yep...little ol' me...
Then there was my guild meeting last Saturday... We have an attendance drawing and there are two tiers of prizes... If you have a paper sticker name tag you pick from one table...if you have a handmade name tag you get to pick from the good table...OR the second table... he he...we are "encouraged" to make a name tag..lol
We pick a card from a deck and then she uses another deck to pick cards. I was the last winner, but boy did I luck out...no one had picked this 1/2 yard of American Jane...
I had some of this in my stash a long time ago and was so happy to have some more...
And our guild has a co-op and I was the winner of some great fabric squares...
This photo isn't the best...but they are a beautiful brown and blue and I think will make some great pillows...or I have another idea I might try...
And here are some great show-and-tell photos from Saturdays meeting... ENJOY!!
