Dear Santa,

Posted on December 16th, by Amy in give away. 9 comments

I’ve been a good girl this year! Your elves at FatQuarterShop are busy making wishes come true and I wanted to be sure to let you know a couple of things I really want, and kinda need!I just love the colors and graceful prints in the Dolce collection – I put links in the pictures if you would like to have a look at all of them.

I keep finding myself using the kids’ paper scissors to trim my threads – a pair of my very own scissors, just for fabric, would be so nice!

And in the coming weeks I have a pile of quilts to bind – a pack or two of these clips would save my hands. They get tired after a while of pulling everything into place!

Thanks Santa! I’m crossing my fingers and toes – … Read More »

Giveaway Day Winner!

Posted on December 7th, by Amy in give away. 5 comments

I’m late to get here today – sorry! We woke up to 4-5″ of snow and single digit temps – it’s still snowing and there’s always lots of extra things to do when the snow flies! Plus the van drives better in the snow than Joe’s work truck, so we were swapping carseats for equipment, as I was heading out the door to do centers in Emmalie’s Kindergarten class. It’s been a full morning!!

I was elated to have 513 comments for the MBS Sampler! and it is always more fun to read something about you instead of a general “great giveaway” comment – thanks for playing along :) The winner, selected by Random Number Generator, is #90 — Diane aka kaiolohaikids! Congratulations Diane! You should have an email from me and if you … Read More »

Saving Sammy: Curing the Boy Who Caught OCD

Posted on November 17th, by Amy in give away, review. 58 comments

I’m excited to have a chance to review Saving Sammy, by Beth Maloney for TLC Book Tours. While the content is serious, the book is well written and a real page turner!From TLC Book Tours —
“Sammy’s mother, Beth, already coping with the overwhelming responsibility of raising three sons alone, watched helplessly as her middle child descended into madness. Sammy was soon diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and later with Tourette syndrome. Unwilling to accept the doctors’ prognoses for lifelong mental illness and repeated hospitalizations, Beth fought to uncover what was causing this decline. Racing against time as Sammy slipped further from reality, Beth’s quest took her to the center of the medical community’s raging debate about whether mental illness can be caused by infection. With the battle lines firmly drawn, Beth searched until she found two cutting-edge doctors who … Read More »

A few things that have come through my inbox recently!From Lark —
We’re very excited to announce an online Quilt It! Contest running from October 15 to January 5. The contest will be open to the public and invites crafters to create and submit a photo of a quilt. And there’s a cool catch: the quilt has to be made with 3 of 5 elements-birds, mountains, silver, recycled materials, and paper. Sound like a fun challenge? We hope so! Read more about it here. We’re offering a grand prize as well as 4 additional category prizes.

HEN is really excited about the launch of the first issue of their new online embroidery magazine ‘NEEDLE’ later this month. If you would like to submit an article or interested in FREE advertising follow the links!
