It's My Party and I'll Craft If I Want To...

Okay it isn't really my party... it is Amanda's but since she is letting us Creative Consultants help host it all around the country and the world... well you get the picture.


This is Delighted... just in case you haven't seen it around here enough :) What you can't see from the pictures is how amazing this would be for Christmas decorations. It would also be oh so adorable for any room in the house but especially a spunky girl... and this adorable bunting panel....


Imagine the Tea Parties!

All of the girls on the design team are celebrating in their own way today. Sally and Brooke have party posts up already so when you are done here you should go over there and check it out. Really if you aren't following the other girls on the team you should think about doing it... they are so amazing and creative. Here is the entire list:










 
While Sally was here last week we recorded a video for you so you could have instructions for the craft we are making. It is a Bottlecap Pin Cushion and she and I decided to add a ring to it. Here is the video.. you will get to hear my voice instead of just reading my typing... and the music is from Sally's band's first album... so cool!



This was done in one take so please be kind LOL

What would a party be without a goodie bag to take home? So yes, Virginia, there is a giveaway. I will be choosing ten people to send a bottle cap pin cushion kit to. All you will have to supply is the glue and fiber fill. I will even send you a ring in case you want to make a ring pin cushion like we did in the video. One lucky winner will win a fat quarter pack of one of the colorways of Delighted of their choosing. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and I will pick the winners on Monday 10/24


... in shop news Lark did not come yesterday but it will be here next Monday... what did come yesterday is the most beautiful solid fabric I have ever seen... Free Spirit Designer Solids are gorgeous. They have a soft satiny finish to the hand that is just to die for. The colors are vibrant... honestly the prettiest solids I have seen. I will have them up in the shop tomorrow.... just a few colors to start but I will be ordering more.

How very cute!

Deb said...

Can't wait to see the solids. I've never been a huge fan of solids, especially white, but they're starting to wear me down, have actually purchased a few to go with other fabric..

VickiT said...

LOVE the video. Too cute and I was just SO DELIGHTED to finally see you ............well, at least your hand anyway. ha. Those little pincushions are just super cute also.

I just love Delighted in all of the colorways. I sure do hope to be able to get some soon. I'm super jealous of anyone close enough to actually go to the big party for the release in person.

Sheila said...

Adorable!

I super excited about Lark, and I am dying to test out the FreeSpirit Solids. What an exciting week it is in your part of the world!

Hey, isn't it great how much better fabric is in person than in pictures? That's why I love to peruse your shop - I know the pics are good, but if I'm in love with a fabric (like say...Delighted!) I know it will be even more amazing in person!!!

Marcia W. said...

Lucky you - attending quilt market - I would love to win some Delighted and / or a pin cushion kit. The bottle cap idea is amazing for a pin cushion. Thanks for the giveaway. Oh! returned to look at the solids - they are lovely. Sometimes solids are loosely woven, so knowing these have a silky feel is a plus.

Very cool! Loved the post and the video was fine. ;)
Thanks for a chance to win the goodies.

Jo said...

This is such a great idea! Really liked the video. The fabric line is just so happy!

I am really groovin' on the red/yellow color way on this Delighted fabric. Odd for me since I usually gravitate towards the blue.
