tuesday = fabric

Congratulations Nicole - you are Monday’s winner! {Nicole is in the US so please feel free to continue to comment today if you are outside}

I ‘m so flattered so many people commented by the way, now don’t be shy & lets start all over again with Tuesday’s fabric:


And ring:


Also, you’re probably already aware but I wanted to mention the Week of Embroidery that floresita is doing over at meet me at mikes. What a great coincidence that I am doing a pattern each day this week – that there’s what you call serendipity!

There are lots of people participating – links are conveniently provided so you can click your way around the web & collect embroidery patterns to your heart’s content!

And here’s my contribution for today:

And in other random news:

I discovered this embroidery related tidbit last night – Helen Dardik the {amazing} illustrator and blogger behind orange you lucky! is working on an embroidery kit which, by the looks of the samples that won’t be included {if these didn’t make the cut imagine what did…}, is going to be very cool!

Oh and have you seen this adorable elephant quilt over at house on hill road?! I find it incredibly inspiring!

early bird special’s wall hanging is also stuck in my head, inspiring me…

I wish I could finish projects as quickly as I think up new ones!

Great fabrics, as usual! I clicked on the link for the embroidery kit examples, and it didn't work. Hmpf! I'm dying to see.

What a lovely pile of fabric! The ring would be really fun with a new summer dress. It's coming, I'm sure of it...

Linda said...

Ok lurker coming out to comment. I had an "eh duh" moment. I thought your Tuesday Fabric was just a show of what you had in your stash....lol.... must be a slow starter... Loving all the embroidery links.

hanna said...

oh wow, I might even cry if I don't win this. I won't get my hopes up too much and I shall plan a thrifting trip tomorrow to distract me from my mourning.

By the way I know what you mean about not being able to craft fast enough, new ideas pop up before the old ones can be executed.

I have the same problem with too many projects and not enough time to finish them all! I've started keeping a project journal to help sort it all out. It still feels a little out of control, but not as bad as it used to be.

I love the fabric and the ring! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'm the lucky one!

mommiesbee said...

The fabric and ring are both beautiful. How nice of you to be giving away such wonderful things! We are some lucky people.

The fabric day is my favourite.
Whenever I look at the ring I am reminded of ladybirds and my nans button tin, both favourite things of mine.

Hannita said...

Oh, the ring! I need another red ring. OK, no I don't need another one. I know there are a few other folks on Etsy selling recycled earring rings so there's definitely a market.

And that car fabric is so fun.
