A Little Sleep and Fun with Podcasts

The last two weeks have been full of after market sleep recovery, spending time with my amazing husband for our very own staycation, and these two fun podcasts.

This week I spoke to Stephanie Kendron from Modern Sewciety and had so much fun. I actually had a hard time keeping my southern Texas accent at bay and enjoyed hearing hers! It brought back a flood of memories.

Last week I had fun talking with Mark Lipinski on his Creative Mojo podcast and somehow missed seeing him at quilt market. He just might come up to Maine and come sew with me. Hopefully Stephanie will too.

I hope you'll give them both a listen - there are some other fun guests on these episodes as well. Thank you Stephanie and Mark for having me on your shows - I had such a great time chatting with you both!

 hope you all have a great weekend. I'll be playing with my new EQ7 software and can't wait to share what I come up with.

Giveaway Day with Kid Giddy

Hey everyone - this post is going up pretty late. I've been prepping for Quilt Market and it was only on my radar as of last week - when I saw the gals at SewMamaSew post their giveaway image on instagram. Never-the-less, I had to get this up and join in the fun as I have in the past.

So I'm giving away the following:

1) A signed copy of my book Sewing Tales to Stitch and Love: 18 toy patterns for the storytelling sewist

2) My May 2014 Quilt Market swag:  2 - 1.25" pins and 2 - 8.5" squares of limited edition fabric - one each of my turtle, and one each of my lobster. You can finish the edges to make them into a hanky, or use them for a cute mini quilt, or anything else your heart desires

3) Dritz Sewing Notions: Quick Turn tools, Mark-B-Gone, Assorted Craft Needles, Doll Needles, Pearlized Pins, Seam Ripper, EZ Pull Bodkin, Point Turner & Presser
