I want to thank everyone who stopped by and entered my give away. I wish I had prizes for all of you. I am planning more give aways in the future. I am also planning more tutorials and free patterns. I hope you will all come by often.
My youngest daughter's first assignment this morning was do be my 'live number generator". Isn't she a cute one?
And the winner is Happy Cottage Quilter. Congratulations! I will get your goodies in the mail asap.
I have a lot of errands to run today, but I really want to sew. I am gonna get back to my string quilt. I would like to get this finished so I can get it on my daughter's bed. I am also planning on painting a mural on the walls in her room. I will be sharing this with you.

I started making a laptop bag for my oldest daughter back in March. It was for her birthday. Her boyfriend actually gave her the laptop. She picked out the fabric and told me how she wanted it. I made my own pattern. It is not perfect, but I know how I would change things next time. I love getting things off my "to finish" list. This weekend has been busy and productive. I made a dress, flip flops and finished this bag. Yahoo! I think I will get back to working on my string quilt this week.
Happy Sewing, my friends!

For my Birthday, I just wanted some 'fun sewing' time. No sewing for clients, no sewing class samples and no teaching. I just wanted to sew what I wanted to sew. I went to Joann's on Friday night and paid full price....yes, full price for the fabric and the pattern. I never do that. Oh well. It was my birthday. I sewed some yesterday, after I finally finished the "drapery redo". I sewed til late last night, then finished today. Tonight I made some matching flip flops. I will be making a tutorial for them soon. I am so happy she will get to wear it to church in the morning.
Don't forget to enter my give away if you haven't all ready.
I'm off to bed. Good night friends,
The dress is Simplicity 2677 (I think)

I know I have been gone a while. I have been dealing with some new situations in my life. I have been having night time anxiety attacks, something I have never had before. I have done some research and I believe it is one of my lovely pre-menopausal symptoms. Fun, I know. Speaking of menopause...today is my Birthday. I am 47 years young today. Even more reason for a give away. I can't believe that this is my 100th post.
For my give away I am giving a really nice Fat Quarter Book, a Machine Embroidery Magazine (complete with patterns), two new spools of thread, a really cute purse pin, a new pack of quilting safety pins, 5 fat quarters and a purse pattern. Here is how you can enter:
1. Post a comment telling me you would like to enter.
2. Become one of my followers and comment telling me that you are a follower and get another entry.
3. Mention my give away on your blog and link to mine an you will get two additional entries.
So, it is possible to get your name entered four times. Good luck to everyone. Be sure you leave a way for me to contact you.
I will hold the drawing a week from today.
Now I am heading to my sewing studio for some fun sewing.
Happy Sewing my friends.
