March brought lots of goodies in the mail
pour moi! Here's a couple of great books by
Liz Lois. Nearly Insane is from Elaine on the Dear Jane list. I put out an online request to purchase a used copy of this challenging book, and Elaine came through for me!! Many thanks, Elaine! Just Plain Nuts also arrived at my door, a sweet surprise from my friend Karen! This is the newest book by Liz Lois, with even more challenging blocks to hand-piece! Thanks, Karen, for your kind gift!
Don't you just love the names of these books???!!!!
Also, I was the very lucky winner of a draw for Melly and Me's new pattern, EMOtional Anna and SeBATstian!!! Now how cute is this pattern??!!! I absolutely love it!!!
A huge thanks to Melly and Rosie for picking my name!!!! I look very much forward to sewing up this cute pair!!! Oh, there's a new book in the works by Melly and Me...the sneak previews have been wonderful!!!
In the beginning of March, I received a pattern for a Cupcake Pincushion by Sandi Henderson of Portabello Pixie! I found the pattern a bit tricky, with lots of curved piecing, but as it was just my first try, I'm hoping that I'll get a bit better with practice!! ;o) If anyone has sewn this little pincushion and has some good tips for me, I'd love to hear from you!! Oh, the fabric is from Heather Bailey's Fresh Cut series.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
