Have you ever entered giveaways on the many wonderful sewing blogs? You should, these quilters and suppliers and designers give away such beautiful things. Right now is a great one at Dye-Candy , a great place with fabrics dyed and jewelry made by a fellow Wisconsin blogger, Chris Daly. Go check out her blog and leave a comment. I love her jewelry pieces, I think I've seen them at shows, maybe by Sun Prairie or Madison? Anyway, very nice offerings.
Here is another very sweet, free embroidery of tea cups at BusyAsCanBe . Just sign up at her email list and she will forward you a nice file of the embroidery. She also has tips on embroidering it on her blog.
As mentioned in a previous post, Esther Aliu has started her new BOM. The first block looks lovely and today I see she posted a nice demonstration on the applique technique that she used to make this quilt. Its worth checking it out just to see that.
PS. I did win an item on a blog giveaway, it was a beautifully handpainted card that came all the way from England. Very sweet. Happy quilting. Diana
