I rarely win anything. As I was sitting in a guild meeting just yesterday, I commented this to the person sitting next to me that I’ve won probably twice in three years, from a group that theoretically gives out 200 door prizes a year.
Imagine my surprise when I looked at SewCalGal’s blog last week and I won! I excitedly sent off my address and was told that since the Fat Quarter Shop would be shipping my prize directly it should come pretty quickly.
And quickly it did – yesterday my husband delivered unto me a priority mail envelope!
I tore into the package this morning to find my very own copy of Simply Fat Quarters from It’s Sew Emma. I’m sew excited!
Not only did I find a great book with lots of usable patterns, but I found THE pattern.
For months and months I’ve known I have to make a baby quilt for my DH’s favorite cousin. The baby is now three months old, and I haven’t done anything but fail. I found the best fabric but when I cut into it and started sewing I wasn’t happy at all. For the last four months I’ve been looking – for different fabric, for coordinating fabric, for a great pattern, for inspiration.
And now I’ve found it. Let me introduce you to…Marbles. The big snowballs are 7″ finished, which is perfect to show off the 3-4″ tall giraffes in my fabric. I only have 27″ of this fabric left, I can stretch it out among these showballs and still get 15 of them!
Now if I only had time to work on it…my project list boggles my mind…
