Because I AM! That’s right this is my 100th post. I can’t believe it. Feeling pretty good about it, ya’ll. So, I’m doing a giveaway… my first. Pretty sweet, huh? Okay, so I couldn’t decide on something fantastic to make or do, so I thought fabric is always a hit, right? And my stash needed a face lift, so lucky you for that. Some of it is Amy Butler, some is someone else (I know, helpful, right?) and some is batiks. I’m not sure how the batiks even got there. I have to admit, I’m not a huge fan of them, so I hope you are! The batiks are a fat quarter, I think. The others are around 1/4 to 1/2 yard and the pretty one on the bottom is prolly about 1/2 to 1 yard. I know, I’m being very vague. Sorry. I might throw some more in there if I find some others I can part with. Okay, so here’s the dealy. Leave a comment and tell me… hmmm… tell me what you love most about sewing or how you got started. I love to hear people’s story. I suppose if you want another entry, then leave a separate comment telling me that you think I am so fantastic that you are a subscriber or subscribe and then tell me you did (you don’t HAVE to say I’m fantastic, but if you don’t, please tell someone… it might make them warm and fuzzy inside and we could all use a little of that, right? Right! ) Okay, I will pick a winner on Friday, July 31st. Ready… go!
On to some actual sewing now. My machine is being nasty to me. I don’t what has gotten into her, but I tried making a shirt applique for my niece’s birthday and my machine didn’t want to play along.
Ugg! Skipping stitches and just making a mess. I tried changing the thread, the needle, and cleaning the machine. Nothing. Nada. It didn’t matter. I’m going to let her cool off and try again tomorrow maybe. I am also hoping to make these into a cute bag for my older nieces birthday next weekend. She is turning 15 and I thought these fabrics would be fun for her.
So, hopefully I will have a great bag to show later this week. And a new and improved shirt that my machine did fantastically. Holding my breath.
Ta for now and smooches to ya. Oh, and good luck on the giveaway! I hope you win… yeah, you… I know, I play favorites like that!
