Lots Of Sewing Fun To Join, And Fun Mail Too!

What fun treats from Michelle!  Thank you!

While I was on vacation, I found out was the lucky winner of a giveaway by my blog friend Michelle of L7 Quilt Company! She wrote a sweet post about blog friendship for the giveaway, and divided a fat quarter bundle up among three lucky blog friends. I was one of them! Part of the fun was finding out which fabrics would arrive in my mailbox. Look at this selection! A fun new bag made of these fabrics might just have to be in my sewing future! The cute charm, that now has a home on one of my sewing baskets, was a sweet surprise. I just had to include that cute card with all those fun circles in the picture too! Thanks so much, Michelle!

Come join the party!
A 'new to me' blog that I discovered earlier in the week is Sew Many Ways. Right now Karen has a Craft Party going on, where bloggers are sharing tons of different things like recipes, knitting, sewing, remodeling projects, vacation pictures, quilts and all kinds of other fun activities that you might want to check out, or maybe even add some yourself. If you are looking for some new blogs to read or fun projects to do......we can't have too many of might want to go over to Karen's blog and take a look!  I chose one of my vacation picture posts to share, since I haven't been doing much quilting lately due to summer break, golf tournaments, carpooling to soccer camp, a Hawaiian vacation, yard work, bike riding, beautiful weather, swimming, that new movie that just came out and......the list goes on and on!  Are there any summer activities keeping you away from your sewing machine?

Anyway, I do have a few projects going on right now, and I just signed up for the Friday Night Sew In tomorrow, so I can set aside time to work on quilt projects! If you'd like to join in, sign up here! I'll include a few pictures of my progress in a post this weekend. There are still a few Hawaii pictures left to look forward to also! Until then, happy sewing!

That's some really pretty fabric that you won. Looking forward to seeing what you did for FNSI.

And thanks for sharing your photos from you're Hawaiian vacation. We lived on Maui for 4 years and plan to go back to live again some day. Seeing pictures helps to keep the dream alive.
