I think everybody has an age that they dread a little bit. My mom (who is also celebrating her birthday today! Happy birthday mom!!) said 50 was hers, but for me 30 was a big jump. Doesn't 29 just sound so much younger? Although if we can pick and choose, I really liked 27. ;-)
Anyhow, to ease the pain a little bit, I thought I would do something that is long overdue. Something to thank all of you for your encouragement and for cheering me on. I have collected 30 of my favorite things from my sewing room, and one lucky winner is going to get the whole lot. Here's what's up for grabs...
1- Happy-go-lucky fat eighth bundle
2- Pink pom pom trim
3- Red ric rac
4- The new Olfa splash (I'm a big Olfa fan, and have been loving this cute aqua one the last few weeks. You'll love it too!)
5- A bag of Scrumptious scraps
6- A pack of Aurifil thread (my favorite thread, hands down!)
7- Simplify (my first book)
8- Simply Retro (my second book)
9- American Patchwork and Quilting (the one with Miss Moda Lissa on the cover- I somehow ended up with three copies. It's that pretty!)
10- Marmalade mini charm pack
11- Scrumptious mini charm pack
12- Bliss mini charm pack
13- Ruby mini charm pack
14- Little House pins (the only pins I use anymore. They are amazing!)
15-24 10 fat quarters of our fabric
25- One of my favorite pin cushions
26- Spools pattern
27- Swoon pattern
28- Niner pattern
29- Dilly Dally pattern
and 30- my Round & Round pattern
To enter, all you have to do is tell me what project you have in the works right now. Me? So far I've spent the day sewing together a low volume quilt (which just means it has low contrast) from my a whole bunch of 5" squares from my stash. I thought it would be a fun way to remember some of my favorite fabrics from the quilting I've done in my 20's.
I also made a little one a few days ago for a new nephew,
Now I'm even more excited to get this one finished!
So there you have it.
Bring it on.
