Winning is SEW FUN!

Ok, what better way to return from a beach vacation than to WIN fabric??? Well, if you are a fabric enthusiast like I am, not much else tops it!!! (maybe winning ORGANIC, not even released to the public yet fabric! yea!!! I'm still pinching myself!)
Before we left, I had participated in a "blog hop" of some of the most amazing fabric designers....ALL of which promote and use organic materials, and they were each, can you believe it, GIVING AWAY some of their fabric to celebrate Earth Day. Fun right?!!! There were 12 in all, and I won one of the giveaways!!!! Not only did I win, I won my most favorite!!!! :) It's from the newest collection offered by Jennifer at Monaluna. Isn't it GORGEOUS!?!!?!!?!!?! Needless to say, I am sooooo excited! I went to sleep imagining what I would make....that is if my daughter allows me to keep any of it for myself since it was her favorite too!
In addition to Monaluna, I learned more about so many amazing designers and discovered several I didn't yet know about. I love that organic fabrics are becoming more available and in so many incredible designs and colorways!

I'll post pics of what I do make....after I stroke it, fold it, stare at it on my cutting table, change my mind multiple times as to what to make, and then finally get up the courage to cut it! :)



  1. So excited for you! Cannot wait to see what you create. :)

  2. :) I know! I was so excited when I found out!!! Thanks Kristie!

  3. Anxious to hear about the yard sale!

  4. It was so great! We did get rained on at the end, but thank the Lord, not until we had pulled most everything in! I'm sure Anne will post a full report, but it was certainly a success and encouragement. (btw, everything that was left had been pretty picked over, so we dropped it to Goodwill, nothing we thought worth your effort) Talk soon! :)
