Wednesday Giveaway

How about some Thread Magic! I used to use Thread Heaven, but it’s gone, so now I’m using Thread Magic. I think the ‘magic stuff’ inside the box is the same, but the packaging is both new and improved. You can also find Thread Magic here, if you are not the lucky winner.

I found it, and I wasn’t looking!

Catherine, my Aussie friend, and I were shopping today and I was happily taking pictures of sparkly Christmas trees. This one has reproduction ornaments on it and I knew that, but didn’t look close. I should have!

Last year I broke one of my favorite, vintage ornaments from my youth. It is on this tree!

It’s not exactly the same, but it’s pretty darned close. I will be going back for it and while I’m there I will look more closely. Who knows what other treasures are on this tree!

This week’s giveaway of a Big Goddess Sheet goes to Karen McMahon. Congrats to Karen! If you are not Karen and would still like to have your own Goddess Sheet, click here to find it.

This product is really fantastic for fusing. It diffuses heat very well – I especially like using it with wool applique but it works with cotton too. The 17 3/4″ x 24″Big Goddess is Teflon coated fiberglass designed to be used with fusible web.

FYI: The instructions say not to fold the sheet, but I have sometimes folded mine and it has not seemed to hurt it.

Magical Unicorn Fabric Bundle

Alison Glass designs lovely fabric that just happens to be perfect for The Magical Unicorn. I asked if she could put together a magical fabric bundle and I am very happy to announce that she has!

The rainbow starter bundle above will get you well on your way to having a great selection of fabrics for your Magical Unicorn quilt.

Depending on your specific color choices, you may need to add to this selection. You will also need to add larger cuts of some colors due to size and background needs. Alison has add-on options with the bundle and you can also visit the yardage section in her online shop for the white base/background fabric.

I want to add that I’ve been sewing with Alison’s fabric on two of the Bullseye quilts and it is a joy to work with. It will be a constant in my stash from now on. Happy stitching!

 

Wednesday Giveaway

Sue Singer is this week’s lucky winner of the COB LED Light shown below. Congrats to Sue!

As I said in my newsletter, Anna Rice, from Tampa, sent me an email last week about the two ‘wonderful life saving LED lights’ that she and her husband used to light their way after Irma knocked out the power. Here’s a bit of Anna’s email:

“These lights were so valuable to us in times of no electricity — lit the kitchen well enough for me to prepare a full meal using Sterno can placed in colander with skewers laid across to hold cooking pots. What fun???? Anyway those lights are fabulous.  I had previously placed one under my computer desk so I could see what I was trying to do regarding computer things like plugging in flash drives. LOVE YOUR SITE and will shop as often as I can.”
