Organizing, Sewing, and a Giveaway!


I was hoping to get a lot of sewing accomplished the other day. But I decided to do a little cleaning and organizing in the sewing room first, and you know how that can sometimes go. One thing led to another, and pretty soon I was moving furniture and organizing things in a closet and 3 rooms. The sewing room was a complete shambles for nearly a day before I got it put back together; I'm happy with the results, though, and will take some pictures soon to share..

Needless to say, the only sewing I finished that day was my  Fat Quarter Shop 2011 Mystery Designer Block 9.

Oh...and yes, today is also a giveaway day! Fashionable Fabrics is offering a $25 gift certificate to one of my blog readers!

That is one lovely block! PS. Loved your quilt in the Sew Scrappy magazine....I have talked a friend into making it with Good Fortune by Kate Spain. I think it's going to be gorgeous.

That block is so pretty. You have a wonderful sense of fabric selection. I hear ya on the sewing room cleaning. I did that today & it took way longer than I expected, but feels good when it's done. Hope you have a good weekend!

I have been watching your blocks from the FQS 2011 Designer Mystery series and they are spectacular. You have inspired me to join the 2012 edition! I can't wait to see pictures of your clean sewing room. Maybe that will inspire me too!
