Blog Archive for April, 2012

Teresa over at Green Bag Lady has had this wonderful idea of making fabric shopping bags and giving them away to people who agree to refuse paper bags and use fabric instead. Since 2008 they’ve given away 19,984 bags! Right now she’s having a giveaway of some great shopping totes she made from Monaluna fabrics, as well as some fat quarter stacks. Hop over for a chance at the giveaway!

I have a thing for blank books. I really love them, and have especially coveted Rag and Bone Bindery’s gorgeous fabric-covered volumes. While I was away I got an email that they are having a trunk show this week, and have used some of the Circa 52 fabric that I designed for Birch to cover some of their journals! All of the books look beautiful, and you can pick them up through April 30 for 25% off!

I came back feeling relaxed in a way that I haven’t in a long time. Of course, I also came back to the realization that Quilt Market is 3 weeks away, and I’m nowhere close to ready, so I’m trying to hold on to a little shred of that relaxation while I get caught up and start sample sewing like a madwoman!
