HEY! It's a Post Stitch Gathering Blend Fabrics Competition!

It has been a long while since I posted, and I apologize...
 Basically I was derailed last year, and it
took me quite some time to come out of my funk. But I am back,
and embracing the only thing that I have to offer the world, which
is myself and my art.  BUT...enough about me, and my boring self.


Jo Avery over at myBearpaw is hosting a sewing competition using my fabric!
How exciting is that?

The idea is you make something fabulous showcasing
my fabric (but please know, you can use other fabric as well).

The competition will be judged by Jo's two Thread House partners in crime, 
Lynne Goldsworthy and Karen Lewis who have very kindly agreed to help 
her judge the entries and find a winner! They will be looking out
 for creativity, originality and beauty.

here are some amazing ideas that were made by Jo,

a tote...

a sewing bag...

I've seen pouches, tufts, aprons, skirts, little dresses, pin cushions...
truly, the sky is the limit and i can not wait to see what your 
talented selves make!

So how do you enter you ask?

Post a photo of your finished piece on Instagram or as part of a blog post
