Little sewing, much dancing

This has been a very busy week for my family.  Both of my girls are appearing in dance recitals.  This meant 3 evenings of rehearsals and then five shows spread this Thursday through Sunday.   Their dance school puts on a wonderful performance each year.  This years theme was Anastasia.  Girls from the ages of 5 to 18 dance.

All this wonderful dancing has left very little time for sewing but I finally managed to turn a previously FMQ piece of fabric into a case for my iphone.  Simple envelope style with a velcro closure. (Fabric and label are from Sweetwater.)

I've order a bit of fabric as well... just because.  Discovered a new online store (1 Choice for Quilting) that had Pure in stock so I just had to order some...   Everything came packaged really well and there was also an envelope of goodies inside.

Finally, I have won a couple of giveaways recently(!!!)  The first was a copy of Scrap-Basket Sensations from Sinta - her blog PinkPincushion .   Then,  when I was busy getting caught up on my blog list and saw on Retromummy's blog that I won her giveaway!  I entered awhile ago so I know it is fun fabric but I don't recall specifically what!

And found for you quite the awesome giveaway sponsored by Shabby Fabrics  at Just One More Stitch

Happy Stitching!


  1. Congratulations to you on your gifties - and I also recently discoverd 1 Choice 4 Quilting and have been very impressed. I should since I won a layer cake from them couple months ago. Wow, what do we do with all our fun and happy things? That Sweetwater fabric "Life is Good' - is that still available. I would love a bit of that. Judy C in NC

  2. I don't envy you the car-pooling of girls to and from dance practice and recitals... I'm glad it's my daughter's turn for that... but oh, it's so much fun to watch them perform!

    Congratulations on your wins! Don't you just love getting fabric in the mail???

  3. It's funny how just when you feel you never win giveaways you win a few in a row, that's happened to me too. Your fabrics look great!
