It's WIP Wed....BUT the best part of this is my birthday was this week and I'm doing a
Giveaway!!! Think of it as a gift bag you get for going to the party....
First up....the WIP's
I am making HUGE progress on my UFO's....
The Reunion quilt is sandwiched and I've started the quilting
At first I thought it had too much white, but I am really starting to love it and I think I'm going to do some of the quilting with red thread. Stay tuned to see if that actually happens or if I chicken out and use my old standby....white 50wt thread. Sorry for the instagram pic, but I have been working on this at work after school and so all I had was my phone.
Next up is the Bliss Diamonds quilt. This quilt was started before my focus on the process and the diamonds were not even so I had to do a lot of trimming....and it's biased edges (biased edges are the devil!) so it took a lot of sewing and unsewing these borders. They are NOT crooked....trust me when I say that I took them off more than once!!!
My other "WIP's" are not sewing related, but I'm oh so proud. This is my broccoli crop from my plot in the community garden
It's a floret!! I am so so excited!!!
Now....on to the giveaway!! It's my birthday party and I'm on weight watchers, so we are doing VERY low calorie cake....Happy Cake as Kate calls cupcakes!
This giveaway is a PortabelloPixie Cupcake Pincushion pattern, and the complete kit to make the cover photo "low calorie" pincushion, including fabric, stuffing and trim for one pincushion (you just need thread!) AND a pattern for the Berry Picker Skirt (this pattern makes from infant size 6-12 months to Woman's size 3x)
ONE winner will win BOTH. It's simple to enter. Leave me a comment telling me your favorite kind of birthday cake. Be a follower of the blog for an additional entry. That's it. I will choose a winner on Friday, Feb 8. If you're a no reply blogger please leave me an email address!
