a giveaway, a discount, and a swap, oh my!

I have a whole post planned on the new books i checked out. I even took photos! (can you tell how excited i am about them! yay local library!) but i don't have the time right now to compose my thoughts. So expect a post about books next week! I know you're excited too, on the edge of your seat right? you should be =)

A few things I wanted to mention…

There's a giveaway going on over at Steph's blog 3 Hours Past the Edge of the World for some awesome fabric! I hope i win, but if you win i'll be excited for you too (or at least i'll pretend to be, he he). She also needs help picking the name for her Tiramisu Lady's name, so get your vote on!

20% off at sewaholic - check it out over at Tasia's blog - now i'm very tempted to get a thurlow and a pendrell.  must.   finish.   alma.   first.

And one more thing, there's a pattern swap starting at The Perfect Nose! Read about it here and here. I'm going to try to sort through my huge pattern stash and pick which ones i'd like to swap and take photos. So hopefully I'll have that posted sometime next week! Then you can check it out and let me know if you'd like to be swap buddies. yay!

i think that was it for now… it's a 3 day weekend, yay! so i'm planning to spend some quality time with my brother…


haha. (my real brother lives out of state anyway.) hopefully i'll be making some progress. but i might just be doing a lot of reading, oh yeah and sorting through pattens. have a great weekend!


  1. Oooh! Thanks for the shout-out. :)

  2. Have fab weekend! Nothing says fun like three days off work :)

  3. Your Brother is cute! Haha. Happy weekend of sewing/reading/pattern sorting.

  4. Haha, I got a good laugh from the brother joke. I had to scroll down to see the picture, so it was perfect :)

    1. Glad someone had a laugh out of it besides me!


Thanks for reading! I welcome any advice, insights, witty remarks, snarky comebacks, commiserations or just a quick hello. I'd love to check out your blog as well, so let me know where you're posting. Happy sewing!
