Hello everyone! I'd love to introduce you to my good sewing and crafting friend, Bridgette!
We met when our kids went to elementary school together and became great friends, but then sadly Bridgette had to move away. It's so difficult when a good friend has to move. Especially a sewing friend!
But I'm so happy to say that Bridgette has now started an amazing blog called Applique Time, all about her crafting and sewing adventures! With three young daughters, there is always some sort of craft or sewing activity going on at Bridgette's house. Homecoming projects and embellishing a cool denim jacket are her latest adventures.
There is also a link to her awesome Applique Time Etsy shop where she sells her original machine applique designs and right now Bridgette is offering a discount for my all of my blog friends. How nice is that?? Just use the coupon code Islandlife during checkout in her Etsy shop for 20% percent off!
This seems like a great opportunity to get started on those machine applique and embroidery Christmas gifts you have been thinking about. Maybe tee shirts, quilts, or a dishtowel or two for a Thanksgiving hostess gift. The possibilities are endless! So run over and meet Bridgette and her family and give her a great new blogger welcome!
On another note, I wanted to let you know that I entered a Halloween quilt in the Quilting Gallery's weekly contest.

Of course this weekend the theme is spooky quilts, and I'd appreciate it if you grabbed a handful of candy corn, went over here to take a look and voted for mine! There are some really spooky quilts on display! Enjoy the Halloween fun!

After we spend some time at at our elementary school's Fall Festival and the soccer fields, this is one of the projects I'll be finishing up this weekend. What are you working on?
