I’m still at the computer

Oh Boy I know I have fallen down a bit on my blogging.   But truly ALL I am doing almost 14 hours a day is working on the graphics for the next Pieced Hexies book who’s deadline is looming.

And obviously I can’t share any of that with you right now.

But I can share another giveaway!

DSC06851

 

 

 

Today’s prize is a pattern by Stitchin’ Sisters.   It is their Eye Spy Case. 

And some fun summer fabric to get you started!

 

 

 

DSC06857Back in November I received an item made from another of their patterns as a giftie at a retreat.  It is this wonderful for tucking into a purse with a stash of stuff inside.  Quilting or non-quilting.  I mostly use it to hold lip balms, gum, etc in my purse.

Yes I have a lot of lip balms.  It’s borderline obsession.  (btw Burt’s Bees are the best…just sayin’)

Impressed with this bag (It’s Personal pattern) I went in search of what else Stitchin’ Sisters had to offer and I found this great snappy glass case!

Oh did I forget to mention that the magic to both of these patterns is that they insert a piece of metal measuring tape (check the dollar store!) and it “snaps” open and shut without any other closure.  YIPPEE!

Since I own as many  pairs of sunglasses as days in the week well I can use several of these eyeglass cases.

(Notice a trend here with an aversion to the sun.)

Leave me a comment below telling me if you are a sun lover or not and I will pull a winner Wednesday morn at 6am CST.  NOTE: you are eligible to win even if you have no love for the sun (either)….I wear sunglasses even in winter.  Smile

Now I will go back to my illustration work.  I do see a light at the end of the tunnel.

Enjoy the day,

MakeItSnappyp.s. Another perusal of their website brought this pattern into sight.  I think this might be another project for me after the manuscript is done.  BTW look for the next Pieced Hexies book to be released in early 2014.

 

 

p.p.s. LAURIE PARRACK I still need to hear from you with your address so I can send your bird pattern prize pack.  If I don’t hear from Laurie by July 31st I will add it to the final giveaway.   LAURIE email me!!

Have one or two pairs of sunglasses AND transition glasses, and sometimes wear both, together...
Would love the pattern.

I worship the sun from an air conditioned space. :) Love these patterns, thank for sharing the website. I now have a couple new patterns on the way to me.

I love a sunny day as it brightens up the sewing room. I just don't want the sun actually to shine on me--or my fabric!

WIPPYSPLACE said...

I like either--if it is Winter, I love a sunny day--our Winters are fab! if it is Summer or another time, I prefer NOT so sunny---SUNNY days are really, really hot. or can be very hot -- I stay in as much as possible! I have transition/progressive lenses so I only have one pair and they are always on my head unless I am sleeping---I dont need to be added to the drawing--just wanted to add my 4 cents and say good morning! :-) *~*CAROLE*~*

Just like you, I wear my sunglasses whether it's sunny or not. Love the sun but not its siide effects so I either slather on the spf or try to avoid it. Thanks sew much for this chance to win! :D

I forget to wear sunglasses because I would have to take off the prescription pair, put those away, replace with rx sunglasses, switch again when going indoors, etc.

My fifteen minutes of sun is about all I allow myself anymore. Having been raised in California, we all took in plenty of sun!

Blue eyes means sunglasses always! Grew up on the beach! Favorite place in the world. Thanks!

DARIA DESIGNS said...

Absolutely love a sunny day! 🌞
My reader sunglasses are in need of a custom made case.
Love your book, PIECED HEXIES, and can't wait for your new one to come out!

Karen said...

Have a pair in each car and one in my purse. My friend made me quilted glasscases for them. I'd rather wear them in the snow....

i'm not a big sun lover since I burn and don't tan. I do wear sun glasses in both summer and winter.

Anonymous said...

I love the sun but no longer chase a tan. Used to love baking at the beach when I was younger. And I wear sunglasses all year!

Deb Marshall said...

I avoid the sun like the plague, but I too have many pairs of sunglasses... my husband says I am becoming a vampire :-)

Thanks for sharing with fellow quilters, Mickey!

Here in Florida, we need sunglasses year-around so would love to make some cases for my many glasses.

Can't wait to get your new book, too.!

Quilty hugs!

Congrats on the 2nd Pieced Hexies book! I am a sun lover as long as it isn't sticky out...and I love the snap series - I carry my camera in a small snap bag and used a large one as a purse until the metal worked its way through the fabric :(
