Ooh La La! A Winner!

It was a great holiday weekend, but I sure am glad it's over. My kids have been out of school for over a week, so it's nice to get back on some kind of "normal" schedule.
We went to relatives for Thanksgiving weekend, so I got to play with some Parisville on our way there. I took my hexie supplies. This was my favorite. It's made with the Cameo print. You can just see the bottom of the lion face. I didn't even plan it this way or fussy cut it.

I even got my sister in law hooked on making hexies. She's also a very talented crafter/sewer/quilter, but hasn't gotten to do any sewing for a few years. I also had some Meadowsweet 2 squares with me, which she liked. So, they all stayed there with her. I can't wait to see what she makes.
Thank you to everyone that posted a comment to enter the fat quarter giveaway! If you haven't picked up some Parisville, you really need to! Really. I mean it. It's pretty much amazing if you ask me.
So, the winner of the fat quarter bundle is comment #20, Ann, the Renegade Quilter! Congratulations!

Email me your address! You get to pick out 5 prints out of the ones I carry in my shop!

Black Friday Sale!

Why do they call it Black Friday anyway? Sounds so spooky and ominous. Well, I guess the threat of getting trampled to death at 3 am would be pretty scary! At least you don't have to get up at 3 am to shop for fabric (well, only if you really want to)! Plus, you get 25% off everything in the shop AND Free Shipping on orders over $60.00. So, sit back in your jammies and leftovers and not get trampled.

Ooh La La Parisville

It's finally here. It seems like it took UPS forever! If you were lucky enough to get in on my Parisville Preorder Sale, yay for you!

If not, here's another chance at getting your mitts on some Parisville! How about a little stack of 5 Parisville fat quarters of your choice? Leave a comment and tell me what you plan on making with Parisville and what your favorite print is. You get extra entries if you follow me on Twitter and are a Facebook fan!
As for me? I haven't decided yet. Probably a couple skirts. Maybe a bag. And most likely, a quilt will be worked in there somewhere. I've got high hopes, but it might all have to wait until after the holidays. But who know. I might just get a wild hair!

Quilt Market Whirlwind and a Parisville Preorder Sale!

I'm a little late on the Quilt Market post, but oh well! Fall Quilt Market was a crazy, whirlwind of a trip! But, oh the fabric and the friends! One of the things I look forward to most (beside ordering fabric) is seeing all my great sewing, quilty and crafty friends. This trip was no exception.

My new friend, Beth Dunn, my sweet, dear friend, Melissa, me and my other sweet, dear friend Violet at the Fabric 2.0 party.

I only had one full day of market. So trying to fit in missing (different story) all my fabric ordering appointments, socializing and booth ogling, was hard. Needless to say, I missed out on seeing a lot of booths. But one that I was hell-bent on seeing was Tula Pink's Parisville booth. I was not disappointed!

Me and Tula! Yay!

Parisville was one of my favorite lines that I saw. I am so excited that it is finally shipping. It should arrive sometime next week! To celebrate, I am having a preorder sale! Take 10% off all Parisville preorders!

Gosh, I look pregnant in this picture! Well I'm NOT!
