I entered the contest, and you can too.  You can nominate yourself to win, or you can also nominate someone else.  I was kinda hoping someone out there might increase my chances by entering and nominating me….perhaps you already have a ticket and would like to have me along.

Nook HD+ Slate Giveaway Event

Blogging isn’t just about me, (at least not all the time), it’s about community.  The sewing community, the blogging community, a community of women, and more.  And as a new blogger I have started to reach out to others in the blogging community to share experiences, ideas and opportunities.  At the moment, I don’t have much to share, but others have been so generous with their time and knowledge that I am overawed. And some very kind bloggers have invited me to take part in one of their team events – a fabulous giveaway.  It’s something I could have never done on my own, and I am so grateful for this opportunity to offer my few readers a chance at a great giveaway. And the prize is fabulous too.  Take a look, visit the sponsors of this great giveaway and enter below on … Continue reading

$100 of Robert Kaufman fabrics giveaway

Did you participate in the quilt block of the month course with Craftsy during 2012? I was new to sewing and you all know I LOVE Craftsy, so I did join up and watch several of the videos to learn more about quilting. At the time I decided quilting wasn’t for me just yet – it seems to require a degree of accuracy in measuring, cutting and sewing that as a complete beginner I wasn’t yet achieving  But as soon as the 2013 course came out, I signed up again. A quilt is something I will certainly try this year.   The Quilt Block of the Month course is running for FREE again in 2013. I could tell you all about it, but it’s easier to let the course speak for itself: “The Craftsy Block of the Month is back and … Continue reading
