Give Away!



Hello and Happy Friday!
I'm going to do a little give-away to celebrate my two newest patterns!


"In the Studio - My Featherweight"


and "In the Kitchen - Grandmother's Apron"


Becca from Sew Me a Song has donated this wonderful FQ stack from Pam Kitty Picnic.
I love this line and can't wait to sew "Grandmother's Apron" with it!

Just leave a comment below telling me what is first on your "to do" list for sewing.




I am working on the pattern for my Anna Blouse.  


I've decided to offer a second version with cap sleeves, so I am working on the details: )



I've also been working on my Jam Jars and Fruit Pattern. I have lots of versions and a few items I'm making with the pattern.  I can't wait to share it with you!


I will pick a winner Wednesday April 3rd.  Comments are open until Tuesday April 2nd at midnight Pacific Standard Time.

Have a lovely evening!

  95. I just returned from the quilt expo in Schaumburg, IL and I have two table runners that have to be finished that were started in classes I took. One is an adorable cathedral window pattern and the other has a chevron design.

Either way I learned a few new tricks and look forward to finishing them at home. Them on to remaining UFO's.
