Happy Monday …

How about a little giveaway.

And I do mean little.

But little can still be fun … and winning can sure make someone happy … and winnings showing up in the mail makes for a good day. So really this little giveaway has the power to bring someone a good day … and that is BIG!

But, before I tell you what I’m going to giveaway, let me show you another sneak peek …

Oh, and look what came today … new business cards … yea!

But no labels … boo!
I’ve got 28 items waiting for labels so they can be finished, photographed and listed in the shop. Looks like an end of the week shop update. Hang in there!

Now to the giveaway … how about an “Oh Snap Mini Wallet.” Like this one …

    I am hoping to get some reading done this week in my free time…but I normally will hit my sewing room for a least a little while. There are some quilt block pieces I recently cute out just begging to be put together, and I really need to sew up a cover for our down comforter that I keep putting off…why don’t I ever want to do the things I actually NEED to do!

  19. Cute litte wallet! I am going to be working on my siggy blocks for the swap I am in. Want to get them done before moving on to other projects.

    OK, this week I am working on (let me just look around the room a sec…): a pair of boys pajamas, a pleated baby girl top, a baby carrier, a Bonsai Bag pattern (from the top of course), a little boy shirt-from-man-shirt, a snow bunting, and a baby headband. Ack! I must be insane. Happy sewing to you Andrea!

  41. Cute giveaway! How did I almost miss this post? This week, I’ve done some sewing, I just made a cute valance for Abigail’s room and I’ve got a date to teach her how to sew up a cute decorative pillow to match.

  42. EmileeHope above sent me from her blog post about this…how cute. Hmm…this week. I need to mend some pants…so sad. Not exciting. BUT my other goal is to make some simple fabric napkins. Just some fun, bright and simple things to decrease cost, dress dinner up, and some sewing that hopefully my 10 yr old can get involved in. We also plan to make some lap blankets for hospice via the Wearethatfamily.com blog! So there hopefully will be some fun sewing and crafting along with the needed and mundane!!

  43. I just came over from Modify Tradition – LOVE that table runner!!!! Thank you so much for sharing =)

    This week, in addition to several sewing projects I hope to accomplish, I am planning to make a birthday cake for my daughter who will be 12 on Friday!

  44. I would love to win your cute litte wallet. This week I am finishing a 3 Wonky HOuses wall hanging.
