New Year Catch Up and a Fun Giveaway!

Happy New Year! I can't believe we're already a week into 2015. I hope you all had a lovely holiday break with your families over the last few weeks, I truly enjoyed unplugging a bit and spending time with my boys. So much so that I completely neglected to share some fun stuff that's come up as of late!

First up, I'm doing a fun mini quilt pattern series for the fantastic British magazine Love Patchwork & Quilting. Can I just say how wonderful the photography is in this magazine?! Everything is so beautiful! The first issue for the mini series is Issue 16, and it's on sale now even in the US at Barnes & Nobles and Jo-Ann's, and the first mini is the super fun Create mini.



This mini uses half-square triangles to spell out a word ever so near and dear to my heart - create. It's a great little mini to hang up in your sewing room or to gift to a creative friend, and it's super easy to sew up! 



Another really fun thing to share is that I've collaborated with the wonderful Patchwork Threads folks to create a shirt inspired by the Lucky Stars Block of the Month Club from 2014 - the Spunky Star shirt! How fun is that?! Well, we're so excited about the shirt's release that Patchwork Threads is giving away a $25 gift certificate to one lucky reader! Simply enter the Rafflecopter giveaway below and I'll announce a winner on Monday, January 12th. Have a wonderful day!

 hello

Welcome! I'm Elizabeth, mom to a very busy nine year old boy and a one year old baby girl and I sew for my sanity. Let's get to quilting, shall we?
