WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT: Hi everyone and thank you for all the great links to sewing projects. Such great eye candy! There were 108 entries, so lots of fun sites to visit. While doing some cutting and pasting of websites from the comments, I ended up cutting some of the comments from my blog.....and don't know how to get them back in the comments section. But please know that if you left a comment you were entered into the prize drawing. The randomly selected winner of the Moda Bliss fat quarter bundle was Karen who left a link for Susan Weinroth's cute place mats. Congratulations Karen!! And thanks again to Chrissy at Sew Luxe for donating the wonderful prize package. Along with the fabric bundle, I'll also be sending Karen some of my button cards that I completed a few days back. Happy Sewing!!
Happy weekend everyone. Lots of activities to keep us busy but we're always so happy when a weekend rolls around. I was sleeping soundly til 7:30 this morning (which is like noon to me)...until Eric rushed in and threw up the blinds. "There's 8 deer in your garden, dear." Great, I knew those white tailed critters would be in there! We shooed them out of the garden and off they went. I don't know how we grow anything around here with those nibbly deer friends of ours.
So how about a happy card for today? As shown in this post, I got a little button card happy and created an entire stash using Button Boutique + the coordinating dies + some beautiful Bliss fabric by Moda. Here's a little thank you card I made using one of them.
As I'm creating projects with my button cards, I'm not worrying about matching up with my fabrics at this point. You know I like to go all mixy -matchy so I paired this button card up with some pretty yellow patterned paper from Crate Paper. There's just enough red and pink in the little flowers to tie in nicely with my button card.
I used a big ol' thank you sentiment from Think Bit Favorites #2 + red embossing powder at the bottom of my card. A small scalloped die cut border has been machine stitched along the very bottom. A Papertrey Sweet Blush ribbon finishes off the card.
And now here's a little something that will make someone blissfully happy. Chrissy at Sew Lux Fabric sent me an entire collection of Moda Bliss fat quarters for me to give away on my blog. How awesome is that!? This fabric line is soooo beautiful in person.
The details: To enter for the Bliss fat quarter prize package, you will need to leave a comment on this post with a link to a favorite sewing project using fabric and why you like it. It can be a quilt, a crafty project, a card, a tote...anything you like. Please paste the direct link to the project in the comments section along with your name. The comments section will be open until tomorrow, Sunday, April 3rd at 7pm Central Time. Prize winner will be announced Monday here on the blog. Good luck and be sure to check the comments for fun fabric project links. Happy weekend everyone!
Edited to clarify: The project does not have to be your own creation. It does not have to come from your blog so no worries if you don't have a blog. Just find a project out there on the internet. :)
