Hi Everyone,

Oh my goodness I am so happy to finally be free of the Jury Duty thing. I have had a crazy three weeks. First it was Market, then a friend came to stay for a week, then I had the "On Call" for Jury Duty. I finally feel like I can get back to normal now. Lola's Posies is in the shop. It is so cute! I love it.


Now what you really want to know... who won the Prince Charming and Kumari Garden Holiday....

First Mr. Random picked #40 (I accidentally saved over the picture of the generator but you can trust me it was #40)

i signed up for your newsletter too~
Hi Lee... I am emailing you as soon as I finish writing this post. Thanks to everyone that entered.
I wanted to introduce you to yet another line that is coming soon to the shop. This is Pernila's Journey by Tina Givens.



I decided to show you the three colorways in the elephant print because it is one of my favorites. I think this line reminds me most of Cirque du Soleil. It has elephants, birds, and unicorns. I am picturing bags and big block quilts out of this fabric. I can't wait.

Thanks to everyone that left comments on the giveaway posts. I enjoyed them so much! Especially the jokes :)

Talk soon,
Julie

Last Market Giveaway and I Sewed...


Hi Everyone,

Yep, it's true I have run out of Sample Spree goodies to give away. So here is our last one a fat eighth pack of Ruby. I love Ruby but I didn't think it fit with the aesthetic of my shop so I did not buy it to sell. That doesn't mean I don't love it but it was one of the hard decisions I had to make while at Market. Rules at the end of the post.

I had the good fortune to be able to buy some brand new designers that I think are going to rock everyone's socks. I already introduced you to Marisa and Meet The Gang.  Now let me introduce you to Thomas Knaur and Pear Tree.

I met Thomas because my friend Sally and he are Twitter friends. Actually, that is how I met a lot of people Sally gets around (don't take that wrong Sally :) )  I am pretty certain she knew everyone there. Sally wanted to see Thomas' new fabric line with Andover so she came to my appointment with me. The minute I saw Pear Tree I knew I had to have it... and as luck would have it Thomas came into the booth just as I was finishing up my appointment so Sally and I took pictures with him (remember I said I hadn't had any sleep, check out the bags under my eyes)


Thomas started sewing for his daughter and took his show on the road with etsy he is Waycoolkid. Love his style so much! I wish I had a little one to dress still. Go see Pear Tree on my coming soon page.

Yesterday, I finally took an hour or two for myself and whipped up this little quilt:


This was a super fast and easy pattern (I tweeked it a little) it only took me a couple hours to get the top done. The original pattern has applique but I didn't think it fit with the medallions so I left it off. This will be a free pattern included in my first newsletter which I will have out by the end of the month.

I am on call for jury duty this week (yuck) wish me luck.

Rules for the giveaway:

1. Leave a comment about what your favorite colorway of Pear Tree is.
2. Become a follower and comment that you did or let me know that you already are.

Giveaway is open until next Monday, May 30th at midnight PST.

Above is the Honey colorway of Prince Charming which I am giving away and below is the entire collection of Kumari Garden Holiday, giving that away too. So there will be two winners of todays giveaway.



Rules:

Have a super Saturday!

Talk soon,

Meet The Gang...and Market Giveaway day 4

Hi Everyone,

Let me introduce you to a fabulous new designer. Her name is Marisa Haedike. Above you can see some images from her first fabric line from Andover. The line is called Meet The Gang and I fell head over heels for it the minute I saw it.

Marissa is an artist that lives and works in California. She sells artwork on etsy in a shop called Creative Thursday and blogs under the same name. Marisa also teaches online creative classes and produces podcasts and video blogs. She has a wonderful fresh style. I highly recommend going to look through her blog and shop you won't be disappointed.

Meet The Gang will be out in November and I am so happy that I am one of the lucky shops that gets to carry it.

Unfortunately there are no samples of Meet The Gang to share with you yet so for the giveaway we are going to have something that a lot of you chose as your favorite new line from my coming soon page:


A little Hoo's In The Forest.  I have a charm pack, for you to win today, of this adorable line.

Rules for the giveaway:

1. Go to Marisa's shop on etsy and tell me what your favorite item is in a comment.

That is all... this giveaway is open until next Friday May 27th at Midnight. Don't forget to come back tomorrow for the last giveaway.

SHOP UPDATE
Kumari Garden Holiday and Prince Charming are arriving in my shop tonight and I am super excited!

More About Market and Market Giveaway Week




Hi Everyone,

I am going to do a giveaway a day this week. For all kinds of super fun stuff from Market. I will also feature a new line that I am bringing to my shop each day. Since I went a little overboard that might take two weeks. Hehe...

First of all (since there are actually images already to show you) I ordered Little Apples by Aneela Hoey for all of us who adore Sherbet Pips this will be right up our alley. Here are a few pics of some of the cutest fabric ever:






I wish I could have gotten a nice picture of Ms. Hoey at Market but she was surrounded at all times. I did get to speak with her briefly and she was very sweet. She had tatoos of the little girl in the red coat and mine is still on my hand (who knew these things last for weeks?) and she also had a sweet little Make and Take project (I call them Take and Make because you take them and make them not the other way around). This is where the giveaway comes in. Even though I adore this little project and want to make it myself I am going to give it away to you . Something you can't get unless you went to Market. That is kind of like taking you with me right?


The little bag it comes in

The pillow project instructions and little squares of Little Apples to sew (squeee)

The embroidery pattern. (this is the little girl I have tatooed on my hand :) )

THE GIVEAWAY HAS NOW ENDED

The rules for the giveaway:

1. Leave a comment any comment

2. Sign up for the newsletter (upper right corner of the blog has the link, the first one will be out before the end of the month) and leave a comment letting me know that you did.

3. Follow me if you don't already and leave me a comment telling me so. (If you already follow, no need to leave a comment I gotcha already)

4. Tweet or Facebook about the giveaway and let me know that you did. My Twitter ID is @intrepidthread

Winners drawn next Tuesday at midnight.

If you haven't seen it already there is a huge SALE going on in the shop right now. The prices are super low. I am calling it The Mama Went Crazy at Market sale. Go check out the coming soon page on the website to see what I bought. I will be adding more pictures as I get them.

Have a great day!

Big Doins... A giveaway, Market, a huge sale, and more.

Hi Everyone,

First there is a giveaway over on Happy Quilting of some Aviary 2 from my shop. Go enter to win some you will love it!

Market was a blast! All of my pictures are terrible. I will try to salvage some though. I could not sleep in the hotel room so if you see pics of me with bags under my eyes you know why. I will have a giveaway for you this week for some things that I bought at sample spree as well as a little something that you could only get if you were there so stay tuned.

Here is Amanda's (The Quilted Fish) booth. It was so fun wearing her sweet hats and helping all of the shops that came by.


Here is the Riley Blake booth. They won for best double booth:

Amanda's booth was just across the walkway I was standing there to take this pic. What a fun group they were. As I knew I would I totally geeked out on all of the quilting celebs I met. I promise I made a fool of myself but it was so worth it. I wish I could have taken each of you with me. Next time I am going to have a smart phone so I can post every 5 minutes about what is going on.

I am having a huge sale in my shop right now to make room for all of the new fabric I bought. Everything is 20 to 30% off. Check my coming soon page tomorrow and you will get to see some of the super fun new lines that are coming.
