I Won!


 I am so lucky for many reasons. But I was especially lucky in this season's SewMamaSew Giveaway Day, which has morphed into giveaway week with so many fantastic giveaways. I love finding new shops and blogs.

This year, I was fortunate to win 10 fat quarters of my choosing from Ella's Cottage. Leigh Ann writes a blog and runs an etsy shop from Prince Edward Island in Canada.

She was also giving away a collection of snippets (see what I did there!) in the form of a charm pack with lots of goodies in there.

Not a ton of sewing happening here. I finally got the binding sewn on the front side of my churn dash quilt and I attempted a fully-machine sewn binding, but I am terrible at that. It takes so long and I always manage to miss the back so many times. So I'm ripping it out and will do it by hand. Pretty soon my little one will be able to actually use it! 

I'm also going to sew a couple more Mendocino sundresses, as they seem to be pretty good for nursing. I'm always on the lookout for nursing-friendly tops. I'm so glad it's finally warmer so I don't have to be bundled up so much.

Looking forward to sewing some more or at least getting some more pieces cut for my WIPs.
