Hi Friends! Did you miss me? It’s been a long time since I posted anything on this blog, so I hope I haven’t lost you, my dear readers, but I just didn’t feel like blogging and didn’t see the point of making myself blog. Now I’m starting to feel like it again, so I’m going to see how long that lasts. Project Quilting just started up again and I was just sewing with my small group and we had big plans for challenges for the year to come, so hopefully I’ll find plenty to write about!

But really, I never have a lack of sewing projects to write about!! I mean come on!

I’d like to start getting back into things by telling you about the awesome Christmas I just had; full of homemade/handsewn gifts. I found lots of inspiring projects in books and magazines and online tutorials that I’d like to share with you! (more…)

A Tote Bag Giveaway!

December 20th, 2010 | Posted by Emma in All - (8 Comments)

I’m pretty joyful today! It’s almost Christmas and I’ve had a lot of fun making presents and packages…the Christmas tree is right by my desk sparkling and looking pretty…so I’d like to try my first blog giveaway and have an excuse to send another package!

If you’d like to win one of my reusable shopping bags, here’s what you can do:

1. Make a comment on this post about anything you like in my Quilties Shop.

2. Like Quilties on Facebook and then leave a comment here that you did. Look in the right sidebar for a link.

3. Join this Site with Google Friend Connect and leave a comment on this post to let me know you did.

That’s three chances to win.

I’ll close comments on December 26, and draw the winner on December 27. Then after all the gift giving is over, there will still be one more in the mail for the lucky winner!

Gift Bag Tutorial

I also decided to make a quick little tutorial for the holiday gift bags I had so much fun making and wrapping gifts in. They’re really easy and you can have lots of fun mixing and matching festive fabrics and picking out a big perfect button.
