Sewing Tales for the Holidays Contest

Hi everyone - I had a little fun working on my hot pink lobster last week for my CHA pins, and decided to give the Sewing Tales for the Holidays contest a little update. Valentine style.

If you have a copy of my book, you should whip something up and enter the contest. The prizes are amazing, so check it out. I am extending the date a bit to give a little extra time to get your entries in. I have heard from a few people via email that will be submitting but are not done yet.

For more info and details about the contest - please see my original Sewing Tales for the Holidays Contest post, and let me know if you have any questions.

Have fun sewing!

Craft and Hobby 2014 Mega Show - It's That Time Again

I wonder what awaits around this corner. This will be my 4th trip to CHA (Craft and Hobby Association convention). You can read all about my previous years, starting in 2011 Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3, then 2012, and finally last year 2013. Nope, sorry, while looking for the link, I just realized I never recapped that trip. Bummer. I did however - post a tutorial prior to leaving for the huge leaves I used on my showcase table that year. The experiences each year have been amazing - so who knows what will be in store this go around. We shall certainly see. If you have never gone to CHA, but want to, if you have a talent to share, or something crafty to sell, contact me. I'll help you get there for next year. It's worth it every time. You never know what can happen.

If you are going to be there....why not come find me? I'll be giving out some fun pins - a hot lobster or a polka dot turtle, and would love to meet you!

You can't miss me - I'm the one with the green finger nails and toes...with tiny white polka dots! Here's a picture to show my dedication to this tradition....I wore flip flops in the horridly cold and snowy weather we all seem to be having. Isn't it so cute?! ha!

You can find me here:

Please come see me and all my little friends and get your pin before they are all gone! So excited to get there and be amongst some of the most fun and crafty people in the world. (If you aren't going, don't worry - I did say "some", not all! Wouldn't want to leave anyone out!)

See you all soon!
