Etsy Shop Anniversary Special

It's mine and my husband's wedding anniversary today!

To celebrate, I want to give you a gift. That's right, YOU! 

Beginning today, all orders placed in my Etsy store will also receive a FREE gift! 

The freebie will be a surprise and will vary with every order. The higher the dollar amount of your order, the more valuable your freebie will be. The free gift will have a value of at least 10% of your order amount (not including shipping charges). 

There is no code needed for this promotion, I will automatically include your free gift for you!

This promotion is limited to physical items in the store, it is not valid on quilt patterns. However, I am offering a 10% discount code on the patterns to make up for it :)

Use code "ANNIVERSARY10" to save 10% on the purchase of a digital pattern.  

Here is just a sampling of the items currently available in the shop. There is much more to come, including holiday themed decorative items!

Here is the link to the store, you can also always find it on the sidebar or at the top of the page.

This offer expires Monday, October 14th. 

Also, I'm almost done with the hip pouch tutorial, writing patterns is always very time consuming for me because I don't want any mistakes! I am actively writing it though and will have it posted for you as soon as I can!

Halloween Is On The Horizon

Hey y'all! You know I love Halloween and have a particular love for Halloween fabrics, and since its right around the corner, I thought I'd share some recent projects with you! I'm still not on a functioning computer but I'm going to attempt blogging from my phone!

So I've been working madly on table runners. Table runners are my favorite seasonal decor item. If your house is like mine, throw pillows are for throwing! I've got a 5 year old boy, a husband and a dog. Throw pillows NEVER stay where they belong, but table runners do!

I used a Riley Blake panel for these four. It made simple, simple work and adorably cute runners!

Then.. well, we all know my halloween stash is far greater than any other fabric stash in my collection. I cannot resist adorable little bats and ghosts and witches! I took some charms whipped out two patchwork runners!

I also have a weakness for Christmas, as evidenced by my two Christmas quilts this year:

Modern Star Christmas Quilt

Christmas Spiderweb Quilt

Someday, I'll be a grown up and use fabric that doesn't have funky characters or faces on it ;)

All of these are available in my etsy shop, which is linked on the sidebar!

And if this posts properly without all sorts of funky formatting, I hereby promise to post more. From my phone. Because computers hate me. :)

Getting Closer!

One of my Aunts was visiting from out of town this weekend and she put me to work making some stuff for a couple of her grandchildren. She just so happened to ask for a hip pouch after having seen the one I made for my niece recently.

Which works out GREAT because I promised you guys a tutorial and I was able to take pictures while I made this one! Which means I'm one step closer to getting that tutorial posted for you. 

Here's the inside. Ruby likes monkeys so she got a little monkey face applique on the inside.

She also asked for an ereader/tablet cover for her grandson, custom made to fit a Galaxy tablet. She asked if I had camouflage fabric, and I just so happened to have a couple of old uniforms on hand that I bought off of a marine here in our little military town. 

Custom ereader/tablet covers are posted in my etsy store if you'd like one of your own, the link is over on the sidebar. 

I do apologize for the late night pictures. She put me to work the day before she was going to set out to go back home, so I was on a time limit and didn't get finished until it was dark. The tutorial pictures will probably show a nice progression from day to night, lol. Look for that to be posted soon!

I've just recently had quite a few custom orders come in, both sewing and embroidery, so I'm going to have quite a bit to share with you. I've been slacking off in the crafting department for the last couple of weeks, it's nice to be put to work and have a goal to accomplish something again!
