I am back today to announce the winners of the last giveaway and to share some shop update information.
First up, the winners. Yes, I said winners, as Leah decided we should give 2 of those bundles away instead of one. So the first number Leah drew was comment number 60..SheilaC. Congrats Sheila!
The second number Leah drew was comment number 40...Kat. Congrats to you, Kat!
Ladies, I'll be dropping your bundles off into the mail tomorrow, okay. I hope you both will put these fabrics to good use, and promise to share pics of what you make with me! I have sent so many bundles of fabrics off to folks as giveaways, and I hardly ever see what you all do with the fabrics. You all have to start sharing pics...I know you all are making fabulous things with them, right?!!!
Speaking of making, I have made and listed a ton of items on Etsy. Here are a few images.
To see everything, go to Sheree's Atelier on Etsy!
I got into a sewing groove over Spring Break! Hubby was home and we spent time entertaining my family (mom and babysis) for a few days. Then it was just the four of us. We made alot of progress in the garden (what a winter we had for Texas standards! we lots alot because of all the frost and now have to replant and fill in those gaps!). Hubby also spent alot of time with the kiddos while I got a ridiculous amount of sewing time in. I managed to get a fraction of the items listed..I still have loads to get up on Etsy and then ultimately on Sheree's Atelier, which has been severely neglected of late. I know..too many hats, Sheree!
So, all of the above are happy things for me. But these next to items made super happy and I am still beaming that I owe them!
First is this lovely bundle of goodies I received from as a part of the DQS 8.
Rinot made me the most perfect quilt, as I love wonky stars and I love the color scheme, of course! The extras she sent are precious and I did not actually have any of the fabrics in my stash, so that was nice. I will likely use them to make myself a totebag. Thank you so much, Rinot . I love everything!
Secondly, look....at...this! Penny, sweet Penny, sent me this pillow, out of the blue...total surprise!
She posted some sneak pics of this on flickr, and I oohed and ahhed over it, along with a ton of other people! I figured she was making this for a pillow swap. No...she sent it to me!! Can you imagine the big cheeseball grin I had on my face when I opened the package. I have alot of the fabrics she used in this lovely hexy pillow, so I will likely make some other pillows to coordinate and use them during the summer outside on the patio set. Penny..you are truly the sweetest and I thank you so much for your kindness to me. I am not worthy...but I will enjoy this lovely pillow and think of you every time I see it!
Okay lovies. I am off to add some of these over in Sheree's Alchemy Etsy Shop! I hope to have everything live in the shop around 7pm Central time.
I also managed to get all those fat quarters I showed in the last post up on Etsy. I am sorry for not sending out a newsletter or announcing here. I kept thinking I would get a chance and then days would just go by. Many have already sold, but there are still lots of good ones left. Oh, and a side note...I did not get anything up on Sheree's Alchemy because I have to edit the pics to a smaller size to upload on the website, and I have not gotten around to that. I hope to spend some time in the next 2 days adding some new things on the website, but in the meantime, as I said, you can find some goodies on Etsy.
I'll see you all back in this space soon.
