Well, of course I think *all* of you are winners. All 504 of you. Holy cow! I am so overwhelmed by the number of comments on this giveaway. Seriously. And so many of you had such kind things to say about the book and the giveaway…it really warmed my heart. You have no idea. Thank you. <3 But enough of that mush — y’all want to know who is getting all these goodies! Congratulations, Madeline!

I have been working on this giveaway forever. Like, since I started working on Little Girls, Big Style. I have always loved hosting giveaways and this one is even more special to me for rather obvious reasons. And I’m especially excited to be taking part in Sew, Mama, Sew’s annual Giveaway Day (be sure to check out the link and see all the amazing blogs/shops taking part). Here’s what you’ll be winning from me: • An autographed copy of Little… Read more »

Me with Bari and Jona at International Quilt Market, Houston, October 2010 Before I wrote a book, I had no idea what it really entailed. The blood, sweat, tears and lack of sleep? No clue. I also didn’t know it would connect me with some amazing people, some I already knew but others I’ve met along the way. When it was time to pull together this little thing they call a blog book tour, I hoped some of those fun… Read more »

Imagine you enter a Provocraft giveaway on Twitter. Then Imagine you win. Today, I went from imagining to creating and enjoying, courtesy of the lovely folks at ProvoCraft. I don’t think I really believed I won their Cricut Imagine giveaway until the box showed up at my door this afternoon. The kids were off from school today, so I had plenty of helping unpacking it and setting it up.  And help was needed — this sucker is HUGE. Like, “it’s… Read more »

Intown Quilters, my friend Sarah’s store and where I teach classes, now has a blog! I’ll be occasionally contributing over there (because I just can’t get enough blogging fun), as will Sarah and a couple of other folks. One of them — my beautiful friend Taffy — is blogging this week about a fun Dolly Dresses blog project she and some other folks did with Lakehouse Fabrics. I’m eagerly waiting for tomorrow so I can read all about it and… Read more »

It’s taken a little longer to get up this last Quilt Market-related post than I thought, thanks to a little thing I like to call “My First Child’s High School Graduation.” But that’s over and all the family has left town, so life has resumed some semblance of normalcy (or as much as is possible now that school’s out) and I’m back to my blog. I think you’ll agree it was worth the wait. I finally got around to sewing… Read more »
