Friday Fun Day and The Giveaway

Hi Everyone,

I am in such a hurry this morning... leaving for the Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild Retreat in a few hours and still need to get everything packed up.

Here is something new and exclusive to my shop!



When I was telling my friend Melissa at Sew Bitter Sweet Designs about the charity that I support she said that she had been looking for a way to give back with her crafting and that she wanted to help with Heartline. I think she is so wonderful! She designed this super adorable pattern to be sold exclusively in my shop all proceeds to go to Heartline. It is only $6 and all the money will go to Heartline. I will also match that money so you spend $6 and do $12 worth of good... You can find it here.

For the Giveaway today. How about a Fat Quarter Bundle of these Basics from Art Gallery:


They are some that I picked to match Poetica and I am in love with them :)

Just leave me a message ...any message. The Giveaway will end 3/2 /12 at midnight.

See you in the morning with the winner from last week.
