Sew4Home feature #2!

I had intended to post about the fabulous purse I picked up while in NOLA a few days ago, however our wonderful North Shore weather and string of gray days is not giving me good light to take pictures of the beauty to really do it justice. So, on to other happy news! The wonderful women over at Sew4Home have been kind enough to feature me on their wonderful blog once again. You can pop over their today and grab my pattern for the Dual Duty coasters I've created.

The coasters I stitched up for them use linen and  my Family Forever fabric at Spoonflower. I tatted all around the edges to add even more vintage feel to them. I'm thinking of stitching up some more in the next couple of days using my Bottoms Up fabric to make up some quick hostess gifts for all the fetes this season!

In other fun news, check out the Where Women Create for another day of giveaways in their 12 Days of Holiday Traditions event!

Ornament Obsession

If you are at a loss for ideas for creating your own Christmas ornaments, never fear! Just head over to Singing Three Little Birds. Julie is hosting a fantastic Christmas Ornament Link Up inspired by a new tree in her daughter's room and there are all kinds of fantastic ideas to check out! Julie was kind enough to include my ornament and I'm planning at least a couple more before Christmas arrives as I finally finished up my first batch for gifts! And now that December is here, I'm really feeling the pressure to get everything finished! Off to finish more presents!

And continuing on with the Christmas fun - the Where Women Create crew is having a great 12 Days of Christmas contest. Check it out at the Where Women Create blog!
