Writing Hiatus and a Giveaway

Wow. Over 20 days since I wrote a blog post. I guess I just let time slip away from me. Well I have been sewing a bit. I was getting ready for a vendors market that happened yesterday. I've been busy making these burp cloths.






That one was the trial run. So I decided to cut out a few more.





And a few more....





And it resulted in having this many....





I finished 36! I figured I could always use them for baby showers. I found the tutorial for them here on Cloud9 Fabrics.

I wanted to use up a good bit of my flannel stash so this accomplished it. I'm more of a cotton girl but I do like to have some flannel kicking around in my stash. I still have a good amount of flannel in my stash but at least I have used up some of it. I sold a few at the market so I have a good inventory for baby shower gifts :)

Here's a picture of our two tables and me!



My sister and mom shared the spot with me which was great. So there's lots of items that were sewed by my sister and mom too. Always easier to share a table with one or two people. Allows people to leave the table to relax or wander around to the other tables :)



So all in all, it was a great weekend to spend with my family. I'm starting to get really excited for summer. Vacation plans are brewing and our sewing week is booked for August. We're going to Wolfville at the same cottage as last year. Except this year, we're staying for a full week. I am getting so excited! And then a week long vacation for me and my hubby in July! So excited! It's been our first vacation in two years! And the snow is almost all gone which is making me giddy with excitement!

So onto the giveaway! The snow is melting, spring is coming and I'm hoping that this will make up for my writing hiatus. The item up for grabs is.....





A zippered pouch! This giveaway will be open to Canadian and United States residents. The random generator app will pick a winner Monday morning, April 20 at 7:00 ADT. I will try to post the winner before I leave for work Monday morning. If not, I will announce the winner Monday evening. To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment on this post. One entry per user/email address. Good luck!

Now I'm off to enjoy the last few rays of sunshine by taking one of my biggest fans for a walk ;)
