Textile Stew: 3/3/10

I was ready to pick the pace back up today, but then my computer’s hard drive started dying. So if I disappear for a couple more days, you know why. Third one in as many years … thank goodness we’ve gotten better at backing things up.

The winner of the copy of Alabama Studio Style by Natalie Chanin is #63, Lena Nozizwe (“the original Ugly Betty” — Wow!). And a couple people have written see if I announced the winner of the Patty Young giveaway — I did on Twitter, but I will be sure to post here too from now on. The winner was stitchmama, #157.

New sewing and quilting patterns! Feed Dog Designs, Bari J., Shearwater Kaftan by Make it Perfect.

Giveaways! Yvonne of Bunte Fabrics is giving away some of her winning Spoonflower bird print; Pam of Uberstitch is giving away a FQ bundle of Denyse Schmidt’s Hope Valley + the DS Quilts book.

Rosalie Quinlan’s next collection for Lecien will be called “Sweet Broderie.” No pics yet though!

    Those Liberty swatches sent my head spinning and my heart racing – I dream of being able to look at ALL of their prints from the beginning ….
