My favorite notion is my walking foot but my absolute favorite is when both kids nap at once and I have time to sew!

Mary Ann said...

Oh, and I follow you with feedly.

Rosa said...

There are many favorite fabrics collections I`d love to play with so I`m still dreaming!!

Rosa said...

I do follow and how about a wallet tutorial or scarf?

Rachel said...

Rotary cutter has got to be my favorite notion. The quilt shop looks great.

Rachel said...

Trudie said...

Favorite fabric in the Etsy store is Denyse Shmidt green hill ladies league in cranberry.

Melinda said...

I was in a sewing funk for what seemed like quite a while. I allowed myself some time to obsess with another crafty passion, crochet, and then just slowly worked back into the sewing. So far so good!

Trudie said...

Scissors are favorite tool. I love all shapes, sizes and colors.

SS Sews said...

I travel relatively frequently for my job, and my suitcases are always full of zipper pouches and drawstring bags that I've whipped up - can never have too many! I would love to win the charm pack - perfect for this kind of project.

SS Sews said...

I love that Nicey Jane Lindy Leaf in Blue in the shop

Kelly said...

My favourite FMQing notions are a Supreme slider and a glass of wine :)

Archie the wonder dog said...

What sits in a pushchair and wobbles? A jelly baby! (My five year old niece's favourite joke and the only one I can remember at the moment!)

skeeter said...

I have two favorite notions. I love my purple thang for measuring 1/4" and also for helping material through the machine. I also love my Gypsy Gripper to help me while cutting material. (It is also purple... hmmm I must have a thing for purple today!)

skeeter said...

I just visited the etsy shop. I have to say that the Posie In Brown fabric looks like it would make a cute prairie shirt!

charlotte said...

I love my rulers. I recently won a wooden holder for my rulers. How did I live without that? It keeps them where I can find them. I used to lose them under piles of fabrics. Not any more!

I love 'The Ramble' (blueberry) from Greenfield Hill.

Carla said...

When I'm in a sewing funk, finding a classic half square triangle block pattern to throw together always inspires me into the creative process. There's just something about putting HST together...

Carla said...

I follow you on GFC and Bloglovin'. I'm happy to.

JLVerde said...

My favorite notion is technically not a sewing notion. It's the plug from an exercise ball. It's the perfect size for stuffing little doll legs (I sew a lot of toys and dolls).

KristyLou said...

KristyLou said...

Wow, it was hard to pick a favorite! But Denyse Schmidt/Flea Market Fancy/Fizzy Dot in Pink caught my eye pretty quick. Thanks for the giveaway!

Lisa said...

I always seem to get motivated to sew something as I'm packing to go in a trip. It's always something to take on the trip with me, and I can't seem to imagine going on the trip without it! Makes packing happen at the absolute last minute!

My favorite thing in Rhonda's store is her FMF eyelet in pink. I've got that in my stash, and I've been hoarding it! :D

I just got the Clover fabric folding pen, and it's been a lifesaver for hemming curtains and crib skirts.

Sarah@SisterGiggles said...

I love the Simply Color Ombres.

Sarah@SisterGiggles said...

I am living in denial, following you on google reader.

Laura said...

I love sew-in metallic snaps. I just used a set of big ones to make my 7yo a raincoat which even a toddler could open and close with ease.

katie@stvital said...

What motivates me he most is crazy stupid deadlines. I make a point of not putting deadlines on myself, but sometimes they sneak in, like the fact that I had no window treatments on my kitchen windows for 5 years, then decided to host a party and HAD to have them done in a week's notice.

audrey said...

I'm super excited about Tula Pink's new Acacia line, and it's coming out in September, just in time for my birthday! :)

ircabbit said...

My favorite notion would have to be a lint roller. I use it to pull off the extra threads after seam ripping. So fast and easy. :)

Jess said...

This is my favorite line right now! My favorite notion is my hera marker. I use it all the time! Thanks.

Busy Quilting Mama said...

When I'm in a sewing funk I read until the fancy strikes me. Usually one good series of books puts me back in the mood.

sarah said...

i'm in a sewing funk now. well, it's a busy time for me, rather. i keep some extra kiddos and it has seriously cut into my sewing time. but this is my last week!!! so, hopefully i'll get a good stretch in before summer vacation for my kidzzz.

thanks for the great giveaway.
i love comma!!

Barbara said...

When I'm in a sewing funk, I just sew on through it. Usually it's because I'm afraid of trying something new. It's never as bad as I thought it would be.

Sam said...

I'm excited about Tula Pink's new line! Thanks for the great giveaway!

Sigrun said...

Oh, we have to be funny to win?! You'd think that would be easy, but NO!

Why do mermaids wear sea shells?



Because b shells are too small and d shells are too big, hehe

Irina said...

My rotary cutter is my one of the best tools for me, thanks!

ecfb9830-3d6e-11e2-8cd9-000bcdcb471e said...

When I'm in a sewing funk, I usually make a small quick project like a skirt or tote bag. Instant gratification gets me going again.

Megan said...

When I'm in a sewing funk, it usually means that I have too much on my plate at the moment... so I take a break until life gets a little more balanced (or until I need to make a gift for one reason or another), and when my head is clearer, the inspiration pours in! footprint13@gmail.com

jmj said...

I'm a crazy quilter, just buying fabric is enough to get me out of a funk

Sare said...

I love fabric and sewing. My kids have been very sick so i haven't sewn in a while.

I love my rotary cutter! And nothing gets me out of a sewing funk like a deadline! :)

Jane S. said...

My current favorite notion is a magnet on a stick! I got one of those telescoping magnets so that I could easily pick up pins and scissors that I drop, and my husband was so enamored of it that I got him one too. He uses it in his shop to pick up nuts and bolts that fall into tight spots.

Thank you for the great giveaway, I love charm packs. :)

Patti said...

I love quilting notions, and the one I use alot is the "add a quarter inch" ruler for paper piecing! Thanks for a wonderful giveaway.

Patti said...

Joy said...

When I get in a creative funk, I try something COMPLETELY new.

This often, but not always, includes uteri.

Monica said...

When I'm in a funk and need a pick me up, I go quilt shop hopping and do a little retail therapy. It works like a charm...EVERY TIME!

veronicamade said...

My favorite sewing notion right now is the Wonder Clips by Clover. They're so awesome! They're great for more than just holding binding one. I absolutely love them.

Kimberly said...

I finally finished my Cosmic Burst top from the QAL. You can see it here:

I love going on Pinterest when I'm in a sewing funk and need inspiration. Granted, I end up finding WAY too many things that I will never get to, but sometimes I need to overload on new ideas! :)

Adri H. said...

And, I'm currently on a sewing valley... I'm trying to get over the hump, and I think it's just a matter of reorganizing the crafts area. Ah well. Thanks for the opportunity - I've been lusting over the comma collection for a while. So pretty and bold and graphic! adriprints(at)yahoo(dot)com

Natalie J said...

I love the ramble printed fabric that Ronda has in her shop. I haven't tried free motion quilting before, but it would be fun to use that fabric as a quilt back!

Cecilia said...

Sometimes if I'm in a funk I give myself permission to start a new project, and ignore the WIP I'm stuck on. The ideas on how to finish that will come later.

Thank you "sew" much for posting her store I will definitely be going to vist her shop one Saturday. Thanks a ton.....At first I said Beaufort no way it was be another Beaufort. Nope ...Beaufort, S.C. if you need to delete this post so it doesn't mess up your numbe count fo rthe giveaway that is fine. I was just so excited I had to share.

Wens said...

I listen and sing along horribly to really loud 80's hair bands for inspiration for sewing. I scare the dog every time, but sometimes you need some backup to keep you motivated :)

Fiesta said...

I make as much as I can for my home as well as my kids homes. When I am in a funk I think about all th money I save up them by making their things.

Rebecca said...

Something to make you laugh - I'm sick today and the huge bear of a dog decides to bolt out the gate when my kids came home from school. So I was in my robe and pjs chasing a bear of a dog down the side of a country road.

Love this fabric, cute shop too!
