A Giveaway to Celebrate…Whatever

Well, it’s not my blogaversary, it’s not my 100th or anything hundredth post. Hmm, according to the stats, Akismet (whatever that is) has protected my blog from 3,999 spam. So I suppose that’s worth celebrating. So I’m going to offer something as a bribe incentive to have you answer a few humble questions. Please just answer the following questions in the comments below and I’ll enter you in a drawing for a giveway. I know, you probably want to know exactly what it IS I’m going to give away. Well, here it is…

zipper_pouch

So, what do you think? It’s a zippy pouch, made with 1-1/2″ honey bun strips (see my post over on the CGW blog about other things you can make with a honey bun). Now that I’ve learned to insert a zipper, an invisible zipper, I actually want to do it again! Now, the zippy pouch will probably only be with similar fabrics to this because this one is being used and you probably want a brand new one, right? But I lined it in a totally cool lime green linen so I’ll do that with the new one as well. So is that good enough? Now you’d like to know the questions. OK, but, before I get to them, you might know your way around giveaways and want to know if there are MORE ways you can enter. So here’s the deal, I’ll give you the questions, then I’ll tell you a few more ways you can get another entry. Then I’ll publish this and see if anyone out there actually reads this enough to want to give me some feedback. Thanks sew much!!

Questions:

1) Do you shop online for gifts or gift making supplies?

2) If you do shop online, how would you prefer to see items listed,

a) by category, i.e., fabric, patterns, home sewn items

b) by price range, i.e., Gifts Under $5, $5.01-$10, etc.

c) some other way I can’t think of

See that was pretty easy, wasn’t it? Here are some additional ways you can get an entry into the drawing. PLEASE be sure to add your e-mail address in your comment so I can contact you if you win. PLEASE leave a separate comment for each additional entry.

  1.  Post about this giveaway on YOUR blog
  2.  Twitter (Tweet?) about my giveaway
  3. Post about this on Facebook
  4. Visit my shop and tell me your favorite item(s)
  5. Add this blog to your blogroll
  6. Add this blog to your blog reader thingy RSS feed
  7.  I hate to do this, but I’m dying to see if it will actually work. Purchase something from my shop or website and I’ll give you 5 additional entries.
  8. Visit the Crafty Girls Workshop blog and become a follower

So how is that? If you answer both questions and do all those things, you’ll get at least 10 entries in the giveaway! Wow! How’s that for awesome!? OK, I have to go take care of my furry children now. 

Happy Stitches, Blogging, and Shopping,

Anna

Some Cool Stuff in the Works

I took Friday off so I coud have an EXTRA day to this three day weekend to spend doing some housework and yes, even SEWING! Well, yesterday, I slept late (LOVED THAT!), did a load of laundry, called my mother in law (fellow Crafty Girl) and decided to head over to the shipping and receiving department of the Crafty Girls Workshop to take a look at our newest merchandise shipment. OK, so the S&R dept is actually Regina’s house, but that didn’t matter to the UPS guy. I packed up my sewing machine, several honey bun rolls and headed over there. OH DROOL! We got in some BRAND NEW fabric!! Yes, it’s new and yes, it’s exciting, should I let you see it? Oh, OK.

Mill House Inn Fat Quarter Bundle - 40 fabrics!

Mill House Inn Fat Quarter Bundle - 40 fabrics!

One fat quarter bundle (be still my heart!!) of Mill House Inn from Joanna Figueroa. (Hopefully more of this to come a little later) And six, yes, six of these…

Mill House Inn Honey Bun - 40 1 1/2" strips

Mill House Inn Honey Bun - 40 1 1/2" strips

Can you tell how beautiful it is? We also got a set of six honey buns of the NEW Simple Abundance by Bonnie and Camille, a mother/daughter team of fabric and pattern designers. This is their second line and it’s JUST as beautiful (if not more) than their first line Cotton Blossoms. So without further ado, here is a picture of the honey bun.

Simple Abundance Honey Bun - 40 1 1/2" Strips (2 repeat)

Simple Abundance Honey Bun - 40 1 1/2" Strips (2 repeat)

I just noticed that Camille has a really nice new pattern out that uses a Simple Abundance layer cake. Unfortunately, we are feeling rather lucky to even have gotten any of the Simple Abundance line at all since we were told it was too late to order it when we placed our first order, BUT if you hop over to Camille’s site and see that pattern and think it looks like something you’d like to make with a different layer cake, hop back here and let me know so I can get it on order ASAP.  In the mean time, I’m going to go and drool over the new honey buns, no, I’m just kidding but Regina OK’d it for me to take one of each and see what fabulousness I could create out of them for samples! Yipee! Oh, and lest I forget the second part of my post, I decided to join a Quilt Along! It’s at a great new blog I found by Quilting Dad, named John. In fact, he was a guest tute writer on Moda Bakeshop. And the Quilt Along is for a Wonky Log Cabin, which I have totally been DYING to make, so here’s my chance. I just hope that I can catch up in the next two days. So I guess that’s it. I hope this wasn’t too much of a chatty post. Happy stitches.

Anna

P.S. Check back tomorrow, I’ll be posting pictures of at least two of the items I’ve already made with some honey bun strips!

Oolong and Ginseng, my turtles

Aren't they sooo cute?

Aren't they sooo cute?

Can you tell from the picture how small they are?  They are only about the size of a 50 cent piece. I am glad I decided to try the Macro setting on my fancy pants camera. What do you know? It works great! I decided that the name Rooibos was too hard to pronounce and understand, and we wouldn’t want the babies to get teased when they go to school, now would we? So I decided on Ginseng instead. Don’t ask me which is which because at the moment, I have no idea! I do know that one of them is a little more shy than the other so that one would probably be Ginseng.  I am hoping they will learn to recognize my voice and swim to the side of the tank when I say hi to them, like my hubby’s turtles do.  You can tell I lead a really exciting life when getting two baby turtles is the highlight of my week.

Happy Stitches to You,

Anna

P.S. We’re having a HUGE sale in our shop! We’ve marked down several sewing garment patterns and some of the older fabrics by 10%! That means we have SEVERAL items for less than $5 or $10.  This is a great chance to stock up on patterns and fabrics to give as gifts or make for yourself. I hope you’ll stop by! If you mention that you heard about the sale from the Sew Good Sew Far blog, I’ll send you an extra surprise with your purchase.

Fractals, Turtles, and Hexagons

Check this out, I found this cool store on Etsy by complete accident one day.  After looking at the pictures and being mesmerized, I started to wonder if anyone had ever tried to recreate a fractal in a quilt, with fibers. So, of course I went and did a Google search and found thispage. Aren’t they amazing? At first I really thought it was all pieced in curves and then I realized that for this technique she is actually printing the design onto cotton fabric and then goes back and embellishes it with thread, beads, and the quilting design. I’ve sort of been obsessed with fractals lately. I think they are sooo pretty and just fun to look at. I guess that’s because when you sit in a little white box (office) all day by yourself, you start to crave color and something interesting to look at (or at least I do).  When I found that book, Material Obsession, I saw a cute wallhanging that looks like a window with some adorable birds. “That’s what I want to make to hang on the wall in my office.” I thought, because at least then I could pretend I had a window.  You know, normally I don’t like applique, but I find that if it’s the right sort of project, I’m willing to give it a try.  Also, since I’ve been working on quilting my Avalon quilt I’ve realized that it’s not that hard to feel artistic even though I never thought I really was very talented in that area. 

In other news, since hubby brought his turtles home from his classroom, I had sort of been helping take care of them over the summer. I never realized that they could be so sweet and smart! By the end of the summer (he took them back last week) the turtles would swim close to the side of the tank when I said hi to them and they would let me pet their heads and eat food from my hand. In fact, I fell so in love with his little red sliders (who really grew over the summer) that yesterday we went to the pet store and came home with two new baby turtles of our own! We have a passthrough space between our kitchen and dining room and the sink is right in front of it. Ususally the view from the sink isn’t very exciting, although during the summer, that’s where we kept the turtle tank. So now, that’s where the new turtle tank is and I will always have some company while I do the dishes. Oh, did I mention that the turtles are just sooo uber cute?  Now that I found some new batteries for my camera, I’ll try to get some pictures of them. We even used some flat rocks from our backyard in the tank! What a great way to recycle! Alright, now, after doing a little research I think I’ve decided on names for my turtles. One is going to be called Oolong and the other is Rooibos (prounounced roy-bos) which are both types of tea. I think it’s because they are green turtles and the lady at the pet store is a friendly lady from China so I sort of assumed that the turtles must be Asian in some way. Uh oh, just realized that Rooibos is actually a South African term for redbush tea, but that’s OK. I think I’ll call him Roy for short. 🙂  Now I guess you’ve learned your new fact for the day, haha.

And finally, hmm, hexagons. Well, as I’ve said, I really don’t like handwork much, such as applique, or embroidery or English paper piecing (EPP). Ha, I guess all that is changing. Turns out that when I come home from work in the evenings, mostly all I want to do is veg out on the couch. I don’t really feel much like trekking upstairs to my glorious (and HOT) sewing room to sew something all by my lonesome. I did move my sewing machine downstairs for a little bit while I quilt Avalon, but that’s also consuming my machine time too.  As it turns out, doing handwork on an embroidery project or applique or English paper piecing is something I can do while I veg in front of the TV so at least I also feel like I’m being productive.  As it turns out, Aneela over at Comfortstitching LOVEs to do EPP (makes sense since she lives in the UK) and her posts on her blog have sort of inspired me to give it a try. I was also inspired when I saw this quilt at Common Threads in Waxahatchie, TX last week. It sold me on the idea to try EPP because I’ve always loved the look of the hexagon flowers but never wanted to make a hand pieced Grandmother’s Flower Garden Quilt. This one blends the best of both worlds! So I bought that pattern and decided to try my hand at EPP. I have almost completed one flower in “test” fabrics and I think it’s looking pretty good. I’m getting the hang of it but had to figure out how to keep the stitches from showing up on the front.  Good thing I’m practicing first! So, that was my weekend. Oh yeah, we also had a Crafty Girls Workshop meeting which was super fun! I think I’ll post more about that tomorrow.

I guess I’ll do the obligatory appology for no real pictures in this post. But I hope the links will help to illustrate what I’ve blabbed on about. Thanks for visiting and reading my rambling thoughts.

Until Next Time.

 Happy Stitches,

Anna

Metamorphosis Monday

met_monday

Susan at Between Naps on the Porch is hosting yet another Metamorphosis Monday!

I am sort of bummed, I can’t find my before pictures of the yucky bathroom! So, I’ll try to describe it. When we moved into our house, the master bathroom had ivy wallpaper border adhered to ALL of the window and door casings and floor trim! It also had some sort of ivy stickers stuck around the GINORMOUS mirror that spanned the double vanity. It had the usual builder blah lighting too. The walls were blah white (sort of looked like thin primer.) The first thing I did on the FIRST day I was in the house was start scraping the ivy stickers off the wall around the mirror.  I slowly began peeling the wallpaper border off the trim too, turns out it wasn’t stuck on too well. Oh, and I forgot to mention that the previous owners had also decided to stick contact paper with a criss cross palm tree design on the front of the cabinets and the linen closet door. And the smallish closet door (which was in the closet and had a hole in it above the doorknob) had been replaced with a folding accordian “door” thing. That quickly came down too. 

[Pictures coming soon, keep reading]

FINALLY, during July of 2007, my fabulous hubby started painting the bathroom, we had picked a nice creamy color for the trim and ceiling which was the same as in our bedroom and a light, fresh green color for the walls.  We eventually picked out some new lighting, turns out of if you buy the glass shades separately from the fixture, you can save some major $$, which is what we did.  Well, the new fixtures were great and the paint was nice, but we didn’t paint around the new fixtures and didn’t want to paint anything else until I found the perfect set of mirrors (for the best price) to replace Super Mirror.

[Almost there, I promise, pictures in a bit.]

Eventually, a few weeks ago (2.5 yrs after moving in and almost a year after painting), I found those mirrors, and though hubby didn’t way to help paint, I set to it. We took down the giant mirror so that I could paint the wall behind it. I also painted around the light fixtures (FINALLY) and while I was waiting for that paint to dry before the second coat, I decided to apply the antiquing glaze (Ralph Lauren Tobacco) to the yucky white cabinets. Oh, and I also attached the hardware we had purchased forever ago. Things were really coming together.  Well, I must say that I REALLY LOVE  how the bathroom turned out. So much that I took A TON of pictures from different angles. I still think we need to put some little shelves between the mirrors, but it’s not bad for one day’s work of painting, antique glazing and mirror hanging.

Pictures, NOW!

If I ever find the before pictures I’ll be sure to come back and update this post. It really is a rather dramatic change.

Thanks for visiting to see my metamorphosis for today!

In quilting news, I finshed my Avalon quilt top this weekend (only one week from start to finish!) and purchased quilting thread, batting (from Bamboo, how earth friendly is that!) and some white and matching pinkish fabric for the backing. I’m going to a pieced back inspired by Crazy Mom Quilts. We’ll see how that turns out. I am totally excited about it. I think it will turn out fun and funky and the bright pink quilting thread on the white sashing will really pop! Maybe I’m breaking all the quilting rules, or perhaps I’m just making up some new ones.

Happy Stitches to You,

Anna

Rain in the Forecast

It was raining pretty hard as I left my house this morning. Sort of one of those fresh spring rains that we haven’t seen much of this spring. Unfortunately, before I got a mile down the road, it had sort of died out. But that’s OK. I think it’s going to be gloomy and yucky this weekend, perfect sewing weather. OK, I know what you’re going to say, the last time I promised a stash busting, sewing challenge weekend I failed, but this time it will be different. I had to run to my sewing room this morning to grab something before I left for work, and my Avalon quilt was CALLING to me! It was saying, “Annnnnaa, don’t foorgeeeet meee!” Creepy, huh? So I just know I need to get in there either tonight or tomorrow to work on it. I think I could even FINISH it, including the quilting part by the end of the weekend, how’s that for an ambitious goal?!! The only place I get a little hung up is knowing what color of thread to use for the quilting. The top has lots of different colors and the sashing is white, so I am sure whatever color I use will really show up. I guess that will be an interesting poll for another day.  I really love the modern look of the quilts on AmandaJean’s blog and she is sort of my inspiration for the pieced back to this quilt.  Not just one of her quilts, ALL of them! Oh, and I am also really excited because I am planning to set a date for a quilt retreat. I’m going to book the dates at an actual Quilter’s Retreat place and go up there with my MIL and maybe some other quilting friends and we’re going to spend the entire weekend sewing and being pampered and having our food prepared for us. Hopefully we’ll get to go in late June. Oh, that will be sew exciting! Well, that’s about it for now. Until next time.

Happy Stitches to You,

Anna

Metamorphosis Monday After a Stash Report

Well, the Slash my Stash Dash day was sort of a bust. I woke up with every intention of going up and working on sewing but after my hubby left for his workshop, I got completely distracted with Spring Fluffing! I decided to change out the bed linens for something lighter and springy-er. The only thing I managed to get made was one pillow, and I didn’t even finish sewing it closed. I wanted to make some spring pillows for my couch because the couch is sooo dark red and I thought it needed something to spruce it up. Well, that led to digging through my stash and then I got distracted with the idea of making a new baby blanket for the shop, and then when I dragged the stuff out for that, I noticed I needed to wash the center fabric. Hmm is this sounding like a book I read when I was little, I don’t know maybe that one called, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie? How about a new one, If You Give a Quilter some Fabric…She might just decide that she wants to make some new pillows and if she wants to make some new pillows she might realize she doesn’t have enough fabric to make the pillow so then she’ll have to use some of her other fabric. And then she’ll have to sew it together, and then she’ll sew it COMPLETELY wrong and need the seam ripper. This is where it gets REALLY interesting, turns out that two weekends ago, on the Crafty Girls day, I lent my seam ripper to my mom, and now I can’t find it. So, then I had to go to the fabric store to get another one… And then we start ALL over again! No, not really, I mean there were LOTS of awesome fabrics I wanted to buy at Hancocks this weekend but I resisted (mostly because my husband was waiting in the car and I knew I’d have to explain the new fabric purchase to him.)  But, I did manage to get myself a new seam ripper until I find the other one (it’s always handy to have a backup, my last backup broke!) I did manage to get the pillow sewn mostly together, the right way, just enough to take it to my MIL’s house and show it to her. She said I should hand stitch it closed and when I said I didn’t feel confident in my ability to do that, she offered to do it for me, yippee! And that was all I got finished, sewing-wise. In TWO days! Maybe I’ll do better tonight.   

In other news, I found this neat thing that people are participating in on Mondays called Metamorphosis Monday.  Susan from Between Naps on the Porch is the hostess of this weekly event. After reading the blogs of the MANY people who participate in this, I was truly inspired to do some sort of metamorphosis in my home, which REALLY needed it. And, given that it’s Spring, a metamorphosis sort of makes sense. 

This is not a huge change, but to me it seemed like one. I suppose because it did take some work. One of the biggest changes here you can’t see in the picture, but I can feel it when I sleep. I have a new mattress set on my bed. It’s awesome! I love it! The new mattress is great, but the bedding didn’t look so wonderful.

bedroom_before

 So I ran over to Kohl’s (one of my favorite stores for bargains) and I was able to find a new bedskirt and  a coverlet that matched my decor. The coverlet was orginally marked at $129.00 and I got it for only $25! It’s very light weight and perfect for these funky cool nights and warm days we’ve been having lately. Here’s the after picture.

bedroom_after

 

The pillowcases were from my MIL for Christmas. I LOVE that fabric, it’s sort of funky and those colors really POP. I also decluttered the side tables and added a little ceramic container with potpurri. Now I just need to find a better clock.  I also love the way the coverlet goes perfectly with the picture on the wall (I got that at Michael’s awhile back for something like $6! It’s coordinating cousin is in the bathroom off to the right.)

Now our bedroom is mostly complete with decorating and the bathroom is mostly done too.  I have pictures to share of the AFTER of a pretty major change to the bathroom but I want to show BEFORE pictures (which are on a different computer) so I might wait to post that until next week.  Well, I guess that’s it for now. Sorry this post is soo long.

Happy Stitches to You,

Anna

Spring Sewing and Saturday Stash Dash

springsewing_buttonw

The lovely ladies over at Sew Mama Sew have named April as Spring Sewing Month! That means they are giving a lot of things away and to enter all you have to do is comment on the blog posts.  Of course, their posts are always awesome too.  Yesterday they posted all sorts of CUTE Easty inspired project links. I think it’s totally cool to be able to just independently declare a month to be dedicated to a specific thing. I always thought that you had to get the Mayor to write a decree for that or something. But hey, why not? So, in that light, I’m going to declare that this Saturday, April 4 is the Saturday Stash Dash, a.k.a. Sew-til-you drop-or-the-hubby-comes-home-and-demands-attention day. My hubby is going to be attending a teaching workshop for the morning so he’ll be out of the house. Hopefully I can force myself to wake up early (the new recycling pick up on Saturday mornings will probably help) and get into sewing mode. Last Saturday I went to my mother in law’s house so I could help work on projects for the shop. Unfortunately, I didn’t work on anything except cutting up some denim for a future kit.  This Saturday I am NOT going to leave the house to go to a fabric store. I am NOT going to even worry about household chores, I am just going to GO into my sewing room and NOT come out until I have finished SOMETHING! Can it be done? I think so! Now that I’ve posted it here on my blog, I am sure all you out there in blogland will keep me accountable. So, check in on Monday to see if I’ve posted an update of all the TONS of projects I get completed on Saturday.  Some of those might even end up in the Crafty Girls Workshop.

On another note, we got our NEW trash/recycle bins! YIPPEE! Yes, they have changed our pick up days to include Saturday morning, sort of a bummer, but that is A-OK with me. I won’t have an excuse to sleep late on Saturdays anymore. I’ll be able to get so much more accomplished! Wow! This is the beginning of an entirely new eco-friendly chapter in my life. I’m going to find myself a trash can and use it for a compost bin. Then maybe next year hubby won’t have to go buy tons of dirt, he’ll be able to use our earth friendly compost! My goal is to have more recycling than trash (we are well on our way towards meeting that goal anyway.) Yeah! for San Antonio going green (wait, the recycle bins are blue, how confusing, oh well.) That’s it for now.

Happy Stitches and Happy Recycling to you,

Anna

Tea Time Swap and Friendsday

I am hosting a tea time swap on Quilting Friends. If you are interested in participating, you need to join the Ning social network first and then you may join the swap, it’s going to be super fun I think! So now I have seen all sorts of tea related things around. Actually this started because a week or so ago I read a blog about someone who had just recieved the package from their swap partner for the Tea Time swap they were participating in. I know, I don’t have a single original idea sometimes. But my swap involves FABRIC (of course) and can also be coffee related if you like that instead of tea. But, back to the topic, I’ve seen a lot of tea stuff around the blogosphere lately, so I thought I would post a few links to items that are tea related (although not necessarily sewing related.) Since today is Wednesday and I haven’t done a Friendsday post in awhile, I thought I would share the links to those who I consider my new bloggy friends. Here they are:

Karen from The Graphics Fairy has found an old advertisement from a tea company. You know, this would look pretty cool printed out on linen and used as a pin cushion or a coaster! Hmm, wheels are turning!

Sue, at Gossamer Creations has created a CUTE fairy in a tea cup which I think is just adorable. (I LOVE fairy things)

Ayumills at The Pink Penguin  has a cute pattern for making a paper pieced teapot, you can make it into a potholder or a hotpad for putting your teapot on or a wall hanging.  (She also has some other GREAT tutorials and patterns on her site.)

Of course you can always go to Google and type in “teapot + sewing patterns” and see what comes up.

OK, now for a NON-tea related link. Did you know that LollyChops is having a week long marathon of bunny patterns and projects? It’s called Big Time Bunny Week (BTBW for short) and not only does she give us some great projects, but she writes these cute stories to go along with her posts! It reminds me of that movie Ms. Potter about Beatrix Potter because she always talked to her drawings/paintings of, guess what? BUNNIES!  BTW, if you haven’t seen Ms. Potter, you HAVE to see it, such an ADORABLE movie. (OK, I need to get decaf coffee next time, I am writing with WAY too many capital letters.) That’s all for now. Until next time.

Happy Stitches to You (with a cup of tea),

Anna
