Sinta from Pink Pincushion had a Blast from the Past, blog posts from years gone by. She was giving away aprons from her own collection and she picked my name from the entries.
Then I had the privilege to win a SewMamaSew giveaway from Kim Place (Dream Stitch Designs). She sent me a fat quarter bundle
How cool is that? I can see making a table runner with these great fabrics.
And lastly, this is not a win, but a purchase. I have always loved Connecting Threads variegated threads. When they no longer carried them, I asked and asked and asked. Well, low and behold, they are now carrying the threads again, and of course I needed to order a selection to have on hand ;-)
These are such fun threads.
Finally, last night I was drawn to my sewing machine and just started doing some strip piecing.
It felt good to fire up the sweet Bernina.
