V and Co: it’s my birthday giveaway


well it’s my birthday.


last year i turned 36 this year i’m deciding that i’m turning 29.

and then next year.

29 again.

sound like a plan?

yeah i’m excited to turn 29 i feel like it’s going to be a good year 🙂 29 is a good year.

actually 37 isn’t so bad. i feel pretty great, and it isn’t till i write down “3 years from 40.” that i want to throw up. seriously?

okay i’m 29. 11 years from 40. that’s better. 🙂

these last two weeks my mom’s been here and we’ve been organizing and cleaning. and then organizing some more.

it’s been nice to place all the scraps i have in color bins. it looks really pretty even if it’s not as pretty as

amanda jean’s fabric box’s 🙂

but none the less it’s nice to get things organized.

btw oh have you heard of this book? yeah it’s pretty amazing. and pretty to look at.

Sunday Morning Quilts by Amanda Nyberg and Cheryl Arkison has been out for a little while but i have been saving this book for a special occasion to finally talk about it and give away a copy of it.

no wonder this book has been flying off of shelves! it’s gorgeous and amanda and cheryl are amazing at what they do. 

taking pretty left over project scraps and compiling them and creating a gorgeous project all on its own.

i love amanda and cheryl’s style. clean and colorful. 

and never wasting your scraps.

i have a signed copy to give to one lucky winner.

AND i’m going to include some of my simply color scraps to go with the book. 

and well for a limited time i’ll also include a 37% discount on all of my PDF patterns. (only PDFs)
