What a year.

It’s still shocking to me to see pictures pre-Irma. Having sustained serious home damage and still in the process of putting things back together, it’s been very easy to forget how things used to look and function around here. Putting together these photos reminded me of that. This process has also reminded me of how much stuff I’ve forgotten about over the year! Do you do that? This reason alone justifies taking an actual look back. If you haven’t done this for yourself yet, do it. While there might be difficult things to look back at, I promise that there will also be encouraging things as well. I’ll bet you accomplished more than you thought you did…

It’s been a big year. I released 2 new fabric collections–Blake and Gleaned, as well as 4 new quilt patterns–Eads, Tee, Russell and Wainwright. Sessoms got an update, and I added some new items to the shop (here and here). We did our first QAL together with Eads, which I really enjoyed, and I hope you did too!

Thank you so much for all of your support this year! Without you, none of it would be possible. Because of that I want to thank you and give some stuff away. I’ll be giving away goodies from above to 7 lucky winners.

To enter, leave a comment by January 4, 2018 (11am EST) in this post sharing one of your favorite highlights from 2017 and/or a goal for 2018. Giveaway now closed.

For me, I really enjoyed sewing with you in the Eads QAL, and I hope to do it again in 2018!

Happy New Year!

Best of 2016 + a giveaway

It’s really crazy that 2016 is almost over. It’s been a good year, and as always, I’m going to put together a little year-end digest to see what has happened. If you’re like me and always thinking ahead, you know that it’s too easy to forget things that have already happened. This is why it can be such a treat to take a look back, and also why it is so important. So do it! You’ll be glad you did.

It’s been a great year, and I am kind of surprised by how much stuff I made. The release of Euclid meant I could sew up all kinds of stuff from clothes to accessories to quilts, and Friedlander and Carkai got sewn into projects new and old throughout the year. I had a great time teaching at several places across the country, but especially during my first overseas teaching trip to Australia.

I’m so grateful for all of your support, and as a thank you I’m happy to give away some of the highlights from this year. Up to grabs, we have – Local 2016, Morris Lawn, Pine, a Friedlander FQ bundle, some Euclid FQs, Hesperides, Crew, Rin and Wildabon.

To enter, simply leave a comment on this post about something special from 2016 OR something you’re looking forward to in 2017. I’ll be picking 9 winners on Friday, January 6 at 11am EST. Giveaway is now closed, but thank you for all of your comments! I enjoyed reading through each and every one of them.

Thanks again for your continued support, and I wish you all the best in 2017!

 


Best of 2015 + a giveway

It seems like every year goes by in a flash, and 2015 was no exception. While wondering where it all went, I took a look back through my archives to find the best of 2015–an excellent exercise and something I encourage you to do as well, if you haven’t already. There is so much that I forgot happened this year! And although it went by quickly, it still seems strange how much of it seems so far away.

You’ll probably notice a few things that I haven’t shared yet. Keeping up with the sharing may not have been a strength for me in 2015, but I’m hopeful to improve on that in 2016. So stay tuned! I have plenty of stuff to share starting in January.

Otherwise, I really appreciate all of your support this year and want to thank you by doing a giveaway with my 2015 highlights – Austin Houses, The Collection Quilt, Carkai, Envelopes, Ebb and Everglade. To enter, leave a comment below with either enthusiasm for a highlight for you this year and/or something you’re looking forward to in the year ahead. I’ll be picking 6 winners on January 4 at 11am EST. Giveaway now closed. Thank you to all who participated–it was such a pleasure reading your comments!
