It's all happening, girls. It's August (already!?) Anne is leaving for college. Tomorrow. Yep. Olivia is starting kindergarten in a few weeks. All this uncharted territory and I'm feeling a little shaky. But I bet you all want to know the winner of the Flower Sugar Fat Quarter Bundle Giveaway, right? Thank you for your patience, and thank you to Fat Quarter Shop for sponsoring this giveaway. And now for the drumroll...
Yay! Congratulations to Claire, who wrote:
"Lovely colors, as summer time .... I love sewing in front of my window and I see my little garden and the birds flying... Your blog is amazing because always full of very nice and simple ideas, the spirit of patchwork. Claire xoxoxo from France"
I always like to sew with a movie on, whether I'm upstairs or downstairs. I enjoy the kids' movies, like "Ratatouille" and "Despicable Me", or one of my faves that I've seen a hundred times and know by heart. And I always have a cup of tea, which I'm happy to drink hot or cold. When I'm downstairs, I'm using the sewing machine. When I'm upstairs, though, I'm happily handsewing along with my trusty Bonne Maman sewing jar. It's become my favorite way to keep at hand a mini-needlebook, a pair of scissors, also a spool of thread, and whatever floss I need.
Thank you for entering the giveaway. It was comforting to read your comments and see the similarities between us women who come from all over the globe ~ we who love the simple art of creating with fabric and thread.
