Happy Monday! There is a Giveaway too...

Hi Everyone!

I am so excited! This week is gonna be so fun. I have 8 new collections coming... unfortunately I have no place to put them.... :) I will share a little secret with you my closest 1000 friends... I might be renting a space soon. Eep that is scary :)

I hope you all had an awesome weekend! I was so fortunate to get to sew for an hour or two on Saturday. I got my Bee Blocks done (one is a teensy bit late) and got started on my Pillow Talk Swap pillow.

Here are the fabrics I pulled for the pillow:

 She wants orange and grey with a bit of aqua. I am using three greys you can see the light and medium in the bottom of the picture. I am adding a slightly darker one as well. I have to wait for it to get here from Art Gallery this week. I have most of their new solids coming for the shop along with Lillybelle... woot!

Here is a picture of the pillow top roughed out. Everywhere there is white space will be the darker grey or I might leave it white... I have to see what it looks like with the blocks finished.

I added a lot of new things to the coming soon page over the weekend as well.

Here is what is coming this week:

Dots, Campgrounds, and For Your Shower by Dear Stella
La Dee Da by Erin McMorris
Pretty Little Things by Dena Designs
LillyBelle by Bari J and Art Gallery
Pure Elements Solids by Art Gallery (haven't downloaded those pics yet)
Serenade by Kate Spain
It's a Shore Thing by Dear Stella
Chevrons (more) from Riley Blake (need to get these pictures too :) )

I am sponsoring a giveaway at Plum and June today. They are doing a blog hop with advice for bloggers. Interesting stuff.... so go on over and see if you can grab yourself some of this:



Talk soon!

Love your pillow - I think that the dark grey will really pop out the colors - white seems to lose them somehow.

Absolutely love your design for the pillow top!! The greys make the other colors pop so nicely....looking forward to seeing the finish when you can safely reveal it! (She might be looking...LOL)

I think it's a great idea for you to move into a bigger space, or else you might need to add on to your existing home! :) Caren

Renting a place sounds cooooooool to me :-)
A real shop? Or just storage space?
A real shop would be just great.

Greetings,

Love the pillow parts - they remind me that I need to get on the QuiltCon block and wish I had some of those wonderful bits to use in it. Good Luck with the new space.
