Getting my creative mojo back... You could win!

Hey Everyone,

I have been having so much fun messing around with new crafts lately. I made these adorable bowls and jars... or maybe I should say I decorated them because I didn't actually mold the bowls and blow the glass :) If you would like to win a "Sew What?" jar just see below.



How would you like to win this little jar? It is perfect for holding your Quilter's Magic Pills (aka M&Ms)
All you have to do to win the jar is tell me what your favorite new project or pattern is. Ready! Set! Go!

  11. My recent project has been cleaning and organizing the chaos in my sewing area. I had piles and stacks that were really inhibiting creative urges and making me feel very anxious :). It was also becoming a health hazard because I couldn't vacuum due to so much stuff on the floor. I'm excited about cutting out some Little Dresses and Shorts for Africa this week now that I can see the floor and my table.

  14. Now that I'm almost finished with the sweater I've been knitting for my DIL's birthday, I am ready for something new. I've been collecting stitcheries to use on hexies for a while now, and today I found the cutest Cat Alphabet pattern on Craftsy to add to my collection. So...time to cut some fabric for those hexies and choose some thread to get started.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I've had the Dresden Plate block on my to-do list for quite a while and after seeing a few blog posts about it, I'm going to try it next time I get a few free hours. I've always been intimidated by it, but I need to get with it and deal!

  65. I'm making dresden mini's, and putting them into shadow boxes with a single photo of a dear grandma, along with other treasures--some old lace or something from her sewing box, for example. I started this when I wanted to get my fusty old lacey dresser scarf off my dresser--can you believe I still had it? But Grandma made the lace, and I'd had it there since high school, for sentimental reasons...so, one thing led to another, and now I've come up with a gift for the other sentimental members of our family.

  66. I love using the leftover clipped corners from blocks to make a little mini~ almost like instant gratification. LOL Thanks for the fun!

  67. Love your new projects! I am usually a quilter (my favorite pasttime for sure!) but I just bought a pattern called "The Perfect T" from pamelaspatterns.com. I saw her make it on Nancy Zieman's TV show and thought, "I think I can do that!" Fabric is all cut out so tomorrow I sew it up.
