something i am very thankful for is this wonderful world of crafting bloggers. people who are willing to share their projects, tutorials, and lives with us every day. there's a big part of my daily life that just wouldn't be, if i hadn't discovered this community. we encourage each other, inspire with photos and posts, and i love it all!
and on that note, let me introduce a fantastic blogger and pattern designer, christina from the sometimes crafter. she has a bunch of great tutorials on her blog. i remember seeing the disappearing nine patch when i first started quilting, thinking how cool is that! i made a lot of those blocks (i used them for pillows, pockets for totes, and notebook covers)! her fabric scrap baskets are so fast and fun to make, you should definitely make some for gifts. she also has a quilting book coming out next year!
and don't forget to check out her patterns. this one's my favorite, called retro flowers.
this ornate mini quilt is great for learning curves - something i want to try!
and i adore the ukelele mini! seriously cute!!
she made these cute 2013 mini sewing calendars, now for sale in her etsy! they would make great stocking stuffers or swap gifts for your sewing buddies!
ready for the giveaway? for one winner, she's offering up a copy of her retro flowers and ornate patterns, and a mini calendar too!
