Just when I was beginning to wonder whether it’s worth entering all the fun giveaways, I won! And then I won again!

The talented Michelle of Factotum of Arts sent me this adorable little pack of swatches:


It came all wrapped up like a present!


Twelve 7 x 9 swatches of “School Days” by Jumping Birds

It’s a small amount of fabric and yet so very exciting! It absolutely made my day. It makes my day again each time I walk by it.

This fabric is a Spoonflower line by Jumping Birds. I don’t know about you, but I get excited about the idea of using fabric that hasn’t already saturated the interwebs. I love seeing new things! Natasha has some other really cool designs so you should definitely check out her Spoonflower page or Etsy shop.

Here are a couple of my personal favs from the pack she sent me:

In other “luck comes in pairs” news, I won a $75 gift certificate to Southern Fabric from Red Pepper QuiltsΒ (if you don’t know her already you should check her out- her quilts are very inspiring)!

While waiting for the coupon code in my email I have already filled my shopping cart and then edited it several times. I’m thinking Amy Butler! I don’t know why I never considered her before. I think I was scared off by the large scale of the prints. But she reminds me a lot of Anna Maria Horner (who I’m recently obsessed with) so that has to be a good sign.

So the lesson for today is: if you enter a million giveaways, you’re bound to win at least 2. πŸ™‚ Thank you Michelle and Rita!

  4. Woohoo!! That’s awesome! I had somewhat given up on posting for giveaways because there are SO many peeps who enter, but man, maybe I need to just get at it! Oh my, those spoonflower fabrics are ADORABLE!! Great finds! I love the apples!
