Hello Ladies and Gents!
It has been a pretty uneventful week for me sewing wise. I have been helping my lovely BF get his new Etsy shop up and running and it has left me with precious little time for other projects. I am happy to do it though as he has always been a huge supporter of all my creative endeavors- it really is nice to be helping him for a change. I did manage to get my first whole cloth quilting adventure started though- I am making a pillow for us and decided to try my hand at whole cloth quilting. Though it isn't perfect I really enjoyed quilting this and look forward to continuing this method in the future, hopefully getting better and better. You really can't hide when you quilt this way- if your stitches are off even a little then it is very noticeable, but I think that makes me focus in a whole new way- and will only allow me to be a better quilter ultimately. The pillow front is done and I need to quilt the back pieces and get her all put together. Hopefully I will have that done very soon so I can show off the finished product. Now what was that I said about a giveaway?
In the spirit of new and old (for me) etsy stores I thought I would share something from my shop- AtomicAprons. You can see more of my shop HERE . I am giving away a half apron from my shop- of the winners choice, and there are like 65+ to choose from in there, so it should be fun picking your favorite. All you need to enter the giveaway is to leave a comment below. If you follow my blog leave a second comment stating that and you will have 2 chances. The drawing will take place next Tuesday night and I will announce the winner in my next work in progress Wednesday. To make the commenting fun why don't you tell me what your favorite item ever purchased on Etsy is?
Here are my stats for the week
