I can never again say that 'I NEVER win giveaways.' (I've actually won 3 different giveaways in about 3 years or so) It can seem like you enter and enter and enter and you never win but the more you enter the higher your odds of winning. I recently won a really fun giveaway over at Urban Farmgirl. It was for a set of 8 (yes EIGHT!) of the most darling embroidery patterns ever from Sarah Jane Studios. She has the most delightful stuff GO CHECK IT OUT!!
It's been a long time since I did any embroidery. I'm thinking this looks like a really fun project to have to work on in the evenings. Maybe do the embroidery and then sew the piece to the outside of a bag? Or make a quilt with several of them? Oh the possibilities!
These will be so fun for my girls to work on. They have been doing some embroidery lately and are enjoying it. Little Sister espeically is into it. I show her once what she needs to do and she says 'OH! I see!' and off she goes. Threads her own needle and knots her own knots. Even sewed her work to her jammie pants the other night, fixed it herself and had a good laugh over it!
She launched her first fabric line in the spring of last year. It is darling. I want some of all of it!
I really like that 'family tree' print at the top left and also that hopscotch print. L.O.V.E.
She also has some boy prints too. So go look at all her great fabric HERE.
Her blog is delightful too. Love her design. Makes me smile.
Thanks a bunch Urban Farmgirl for hosting the giveaway and Thanks to Sarah Jane Studios for giving the patterns away! Cannot wait to use them.
Do you do embroidery? Have any ongoing projects? Do your kids like it?
