Friday Fun Day and Two Giveaways and a One Day Discount Code

Hi Everyone,

After I finished my shipping yesterday I had a few minutes to work on a special little project. Here is a sneak peek:

I am gonna either change the color of the bird or move it to the other side so it's tail doesn't get lost in the flowers... but you get the idea... more about this Monday.

Amanda did a fun video with Riley Blake about her banner panel go check it out here.



It is Friday giveaway day... Since we are having so much fun with Delighted here are two more ways for you to win.

Sunni and Melissa used to blog together at Love Affair With My Brother (go to the blog to figure out what that name is all about) but now Melissa is launching her own pattern company. Don't worry they are still good friends just splitting up the blog. So both are giving away a Delighted Rolie Polie.

Sunni is still blogging at Love Affair...she is a talented young lady she is competing in American Crafter... can't wait to see what she makes. She is also contributing to my Newsletter this month. So go on over and enter to win some Delighted.

Melissa is now at Sew Bitter Sweet Designs she is making a name for herself so keep an eye out for her. She is also contributing to the Newsletter this month. Go on over and enter to win with her too.

Let's celebrate Friday! Today only 20% off everything in the shop with this code FFD20

I will be back tomorrow with the winners of last weeks giveaway.

  1. I like the bird, facing right, and don't think it looks "lost", at least in the photo.

  3. Love the block - you could leave the bird where he is an do some quilting/embroidery (or hand quilting with perle threads?) on his tail if you thought it was getting lost...always hard to tell on a photo though!

  21. We had a surprise snowstorm Tuesday night, last night it froze so most of our garden is history. Haven't seen many birds today. I'm wearing shoes and socks for the 1st time in 5 months. I like your bright yellow bird. I'm not ready for winter!

  22. I think that the more I see of Delighted, the more I like it/want it/need it/have to have it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. The block you're working on looks good. If you want the bird on that side have you tried making it from white fabric? I think it might look good in white where it's at leaving that other side open to rest the eyes in that open area a bit.

    Thank you for the great giveaways at the other two blogs. I'm already following them both and have now entered. After seeing Delighted in person I am keeping my fingers crossed. It is even more beautiful in person.

  44. doing the Hi thing for Sewbittersweet's competition. Btw, love the bird, but I'd pop him on the right, or else do some free-motion embroidery to make his tail feathery with a little brown thread.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love the bird, how about a bright thread to sew the tail so it shows up. I like it on the fabric.
