A Valentine’s Day Giveaway and Review
February 14, 2011
Today, I bring you a Valentine’s Day Giveaway…
Why, you might ask?
“All you need is love, love. Love is all you need.” -The Beatles
Today, on this special Valentine’s Day, I’m remembering the heart behind where my work started, and all the lovely people in my life who inspire me to create.
Did you know that The Artists’ House all started because I wanted to make something special for my daughter? Ironically, the day I “Said Goodbye to our beloved Charely Harper Quilt” was the day I officially became a designer. And now, I’m still here, continuing to make lovely things for both my daughter, and for other people. How lucky am I?
Before I get to the giveaway, I want to start by introducing Megan from Sanourra’s Fabric Love. I’m a fan and a customer of Megan’s fabric shop because her prices are great. Along with that, she has a great variety of vintage fabrics and patterns, along with a great selection of modern designer fabrics. Do you remember the “A Quilt Full of Memories” quilt I made? Yeah, those retro like Moda fabrics came from Megan’s shop. You can follow Megan as @sanourra on Twitter, or visit her Fabric Love Facebook page.
Check it out and “heart” her Etsy shop for your fabric purchases!
Next, I want to introduce Lena from Needle Craft Patterns. I stumbled across Lena’s Etsy shop while looking for a shoe pattern for Monet. Lena agreed to let me do a review of her patterns, and so me, along with a friend of mine over at Elsa Bags, made a play date for our kiddos, and while the kids played, we used two of Lena’s patterns to make shoes for our little lovelies. Do you want to see what we made?
Aren’t they cute! Lena’s patterns are great, packed full of pictures, and easy to follow. Along with that, Lena has a super cute blog full of sewing ideas and patterns –you can also find her on facebook.
