Sew Mama Sew Giveaway time again. My nephew is getting married in 19 days. My sister is starting to stress out a bit. So leave a comment about something funny that happened at a wedding, a special wedding tradition your family has or give my sister some advice to survive the next couple of weeks.
The bag is a light weight courdory stipple quilted with a pink polkadot fabric on the inside. I didn't finish it until late last night, more photos later today.
Post your comment before 5pm PST on the 25th, I will randomly draw one winner on Saturday the 26th from all the comments. Yes I will ship internationally. Just remember to slow it down and enjoy the blogs, you have all week to take in the creativity.
And check back tomorrow... hopefully I will have the double wedding ring quilt back from the long arm quilter.
Hard to believe another Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day is on the horizon. If you have never participated, I highly recommend it. I personally think having a giveaway is just as much fun as browsing through all the awesome blogs. The creativity on the blogs will inspire you but giving something away will warm your heart.
So start thinking now what you would give away. It starts Monday, May 21st. Hmmm... Now what do I want to give away?? Something from my stash or make something special?
One of the guys at work had some of this with his lunch today. I might just have to try it.
SNICKERS® BAR SALAD
1 lg. instant vanilla pudding 8 to 12 oz. Cool whip 4 to 5 SNICKERS® bars 5 to 6 diced apples 3 to 4 sliced bananas Use 1 1/2 cups milk to pudding and mix until creamy. Add Cool Whip. Add SNICKERS® (cut in pieces). Add fruit to mixture. Serves 8-12.
Felt good to get back in front of the sewing machine.
Orange and black bags are from a patterns out of a quilt magazines. Nice to use up some fabric from my stash and a few yards of flat lace. Zebra print is a wine bottle tote. The tutorial can be found here. http://www.needleandspatula.com/2011/01/quilted-wine-tote-sewing-tutorial.html?m=1 I see a few more of those in the future.
And two matching table runners. Need to quilt them this week.
I went to the local quilt meeting last night. I had an unexpectedly good time. The guest speaker was Jill Mead, the editor of Quilts and More magazine.
Jill gave all if us a couple of magazines and I had to buy three of her patterns while I was there. The pattern photos have a very 1980's look to them but her stuffed looked fabulous on the guild members that modeled them.
I was so impressed with the level of talent in the room. It might be a long while before I take something for show and tell.
