I won, I won!!!

As you, my faithful readers, know I like to paper piece. It probably is anywhere from 25-50% of what I do (especially as of late since I keep joining the paper pieced hives in the Flickr bees). Well, this past week many bloggers participated in the Sew Mama Sew giveaway day. And I won what I think is probably the best of all the giveaways for me.

Kristy over at Quiet Play designed a set of paper pieced alphabet blocks both upper and lower case along with numbers and punctuation. Check out her Craftsy Store where you can see those and her retro kitchen series plus many, many more. I can't wait to use these in my quilting.

Along with waking up to the great email from Kristy, today my mom and I headed up to Baltimore for a sewing and quilting expo. We both took classes and shopped the vendors. There will be a full post about that coming later, probably tomorrow, but for now it's time for me to have a housewarming/birthday party now that my apartment is unpacked, and since I turned 26 this week. 


  1. Yay paper piecing right?! Patterns ought to be in your email now - have fun with them!

    And hope you had/have a really happy birthday!

  2. Congrats on winning the PP letters and numbers. I almost bought that pattern when I went looking for letters for my flags for "to Boston with Love" but since I was making 12 flags, I decided to go with appliqued lettering. I still plan on purchasing the PP letters later on.

  3. Congrats on winning! That is awesome! And happy belated birthday too. :)


Feedback is fantastic! Give me your thoughts, and I make every attempt to respond to all of them.
