Today is day 5 and it is my debut as a guest poster on Susie's blog. I'm so excited! I'm only going to give you a little peek at my pillow here on BuzzinBumble today. To really see it, Let's Go To the Hop (Oh Baby) at Susie's Sunroom!
This is the schedule for the week of fun. I hope you will look at all the many wonderful renditions of the Simply Striped Pillow at Susie's Sunroom. The diversity of ideas and talent has been amazing!
March 2 Elaine ~ Summercrafter
March 3 Susie ~ Susie's Sunroom
March 4 Geta ~ Geta's Quilting Studio
March 5 Sheri ~ Sunshine in the Attic
March 6 Lara ~ BuzzinBumble
March 7 Amanda ~ The Patchsmith
March 8 Amy ~ Amy Made That!
And the Giveaway? Oh yes indeed! Susie has given us a copy of her pdf pattern for the Simply Striped Pillow and I am sweetening the pot by adding a brand new copy of Christina Cameli's latest book "Step-by-Step Free-Motion Quilting". This book is a treasure trove of FMQ motifs and instructions on how to accomplish them! Both prizes will go to one lucky winner, whose name will be drawn by the random number generator on Friday, March 13th!
|Christina Cameli's Step-by-Step Free Motion Quilting|
I adapted two of Christina's wonderful FMQ patterns for my Simply Striped Pillow. Between Christina's two books (she is also the best selling author of "First Steps to Free-Motion Quilting") and her Craftsy class "The Secrets of Free-Motion Quilting"- I hope to finally tackle the FMQ beastie! Christina's class is a much loved success! So much so, that the Craftsy people have asked her back to film a second one! How cool is that?!
To enter my giveaway, just leave a comment on Susie's blog hop and then come back here and leave a comment letting me know that you did.
Please make sure that I can contact you! Sometimes people are "no reply commenters" and I have no way to reach them. Also - sometimes so many people enter a giveaway that I cannot keep up with replying, so I am going to apologize ahead of time if that happens. I'll go back to being my normal, reciprocal self after the giveaway.
Susie is also running a giveaway on her blog for the hop, so don't miss out on that!
Here is the "little peek" at my pillow: (Bet you didn't know I was so literal - heh heh)
Something else of interest to my blogging friends:
After my last giveaway, I happened to look at my blog's traffic sources and noticed a very nice number of pageviews had come from Wow I Like That! Wow, is right! This webpage is an up-to-date collection of sewing and quilting themed giveaways, maintained by the ever vigilant Debbie. You can let Debbie know if you or a friend are having a giveaway too. Thank you Debbie for all your work in putting this together!
Last of all, thank you for the wonderful comments about my new animated blog signature! Amy said it all when she described the pup as showing "the universal invitation to play". Yup, that's what it is!
