The Fabric Shopper: Five Weeks of Amy Butler - Bag Pattern & Fabric Giveaway!


I recently won the Fat Quarters giveaway of Anna Maria Horner's New Good Folks Collection on The Fabric Shopper Blog. It was a great feeling to win and like most people - I never win anything. Here are the 12 great fat quarters I won - thanks to Cynthia Mann at http://www.fabricworm.com/. The picture does not do justice to the lovely colors.

In order to allow other first time winners to experience the thrill of a win, I want to tell you about another giveaway. Use the link above to check out the Five Weeks of Amy Butler - Bag Pattern & Fabric Giveaway.

Thanks and Good Luck !

Cross Stitch - found again

Hi - I have been cleaning out closets and unpacking the smaller boxes left over from my move to this house - five years ago.
Look what was in one of the small boxes way back on a top shelf. These little squares were completed probably 20 years ago. The patterns for them must be in one of my books sitting on my shelf. I use to do alot of cross stitch but then switched to sewing and knitting. Now that I see these little guys - there will be alot more cross stitching in my future.

No one is home...

Hello - This is my second post to my blog. To the casual observer it probably appears nothing is going on here. Not so. I have agonized over so many things; is it ok to just add the blogs I like? or is it considered rude to add without asking. I have so much to learn.

I changed my template, resized my picture, changed the name of my blog, reworded my first post at least 10 times (I really need to relax about this). See? I've been busy.

Every few days I will add pics of my favorite things. Everyone has something they just love and it is fun to share. My first is The Shoes. Don't you just love them?

Unfortunately, I do not actually HAVE the shoes...just a pic. They were sold on eBay and the auction had already ended. I was too late. Otherwise they would have been mine! :-)
I plan to use the picture as inspiration for a fancy dress doll or lovely shoes for paper dolls.
That is all for today - hope to see you soon.

So very new to blogging...

and yet here I am. My first post. Most people must do some research before they create a blog. Not me. Nope. Nah.

I have been viewing all the wonderful blogs on Lisa Swifka's One World One Heart Event Blog 2009 and decided that next year will be MY opportunity to join in and offer something I have created to this fabulous giveaway. Since my natural tendency is to procastinate, it was now or never. It seemed logical that my first step needed to be setting up a blog. So, here I am.

Since I am not a participant in the OWOH event, there is no link to Lisa's blog from here. However, if you google 'One World One Heart 2009' you will find it.

Please check back every so often. I will keep working on this and try to make this a much better experience for you. If you have any suggestions - please chime in. I would love to hear from you.
