Weekend Sewing

Oof, what a weekend. Lots of eating, lots of sewing, and lots of rain! I am so happy for the rain. It is cold and miserable, but we really need it. Plus, rain means that I have an excuse to stay inside and sew! Along with all the Dear Jane blocks, here is what I did this weekend:
A couple blocks for the bushfire quilt project. There are some beautiful quilts being made for the victims of the bushfire in Victoria, and I wanted to contribute a little bit. They're on their way to Australia now.
Also, I have been VERY lucky in online contests recently. I won these earrings from Sulu. LOVE her earrings. I think this is my 3rd or 4th pair of hers.
I also won a pack of fat quarters from Sew Mama Sew and 4 fat quarters from Anina via her Twiddletails store. She is also the one who is inspiring to make THAT QUILT. Both are great places to shop. I would have photos, but they went straight into the wash to be used for my Dear Jane quilt. You'll see them in blocks soon! Thank you!!

I think I will have to pass on this good karma and do a giveaway as well. Plus I have blasted past 200 posts, I think this is 204? I'll have to do a giveaway at 250 posts.

Oh and to go with the title of the post, my copy of Weekend Sewing is in the mail! I am SO excited!!!!

Oh, isn't this rain crazy? I agree with your sentiment- don't love it but sorely need it. Glad you're productive in the crafting dept this weekend, all I did was eat and sleep :P Not complaining though ;) Oh, and btw, you should go buy lotto!

I love the star blocks you made for the Bushfire Quilts Project; they're beautiful. And those earrings, truly lovely. I put Weekend Sewing on my Wish List yesterday and look forward to hearing how you like the book when it arrives at your house.
