6 Months!

Good Morning Lovelies!

Can you believe it's been 6 ENTIRE months since my last post? Honestly! I'm ridiculous. Karen! Why has it been so long?? I'll tell you why. When you combine a person who loves to sew, with a person who loves to give things to people, and add in a million friends, family and gift-giving recipients.... one tends to go overboard... THAT's ME! Someone send a life preserver because I'm drowning in a sea of sewing!

On second thought- don't! I like it too much down here. The sad part is that I'm not even done. I've been sewing like a maniac since the October craft show and I'm still not done. Yikes. I've officially come up for air though! I'm done until after the holidays where January will see me finishing Christmas gifts! Seriously ridiculous.

Next week I'll be posting my favorite gift from this year: My daughters Christmas Quilt. I've sewn it entirely from Kate Spain's Flurry line, and added in a border of Kona Pink on the back of it. It's to die for. Want a sneak peek? I'll show you a progress shot from when I was figuring out how to piece this thing together:

This year I'm all about bright and crisp green and white, and I wanted her to have a Christmas quilt that would age with her as she grew up so that's what she got! I indulged on the back which you will see next week with the pink. She is after all, a girly girl.

Right now however, you should all be blistering your fingers with the amazing Sew Mama Sew giveaway thats going on!! Get your entires in ladies the prizes are outstanding! Makes me wish I had got it together to participate this round but I have a precious prize for the summer edition next year that your eyes and sewing rooms will love <3
