I can't thank Nanette at Freda's Hive for putting my blog on her blog! She has sent me the most wonderful people this weekend. I feel like I've made many new friends. I'm kind of new to blogging, but I can tell already, it's addictive!
Before we find out who won their choice of pattern, I have a couple of things to share. First, for all those wonderful comments about my new look and the polka dot fabric in my header, you might be interested in knowing that it will be included in my upcoming new fabric collection which will be out soon! It's called "Rise and Shine!" Can you guess what the focus fabric is?
Secondly, for those of you who are looking for me to get back to selling feedsacks, you'll be glad to know that I just opened a new Etsy shop this weekend and there are a few things listed out there. There will be lots more to come, so don't despair if you don't find what you're looking for.
You may wonder why I chose to open a store rather than sell those items on my website. In a nutshell, the program to run the website is not real user friendly and I'm, well, DUMB when it comes to programming! Bill for some reason doesn't want to spend his days listing one of a kind items for me and taking them off when they sell. He thinks he'd rather be golfing or something silly like that.
Anyhoo, I am impressed with how easy Etsy is for both buyer and seller. If you're not already registered, it's a breeze and they make purchasing very simple. You'll still deal directly with me and will pay the same way that you do on my website.
If you're not familiar with Etsy, it has had some great press lately in Country Living and other magazines. The site is specifically for artists and crafters to sell their handmade work and purchase supplies to make their items. What quilter wouldn't love that?
OK-- on to the important stuff....
Here's the bowl with all the names in it:
And here's the winner!
Congratulations, Amanda Jean! Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your pattern choice and address and I'll get it to you right away!
This has been so much fun. I look forward to doing it again soon. Have a wonderful week! Blessings~
