Tufted Tweets - Pincushion Giveaway!

For those of you who have been following me for a while, you know that one of my big 'dork out' moments surrounding Tufted Tweets came when I first saw the selvage with my name on it. It was the thing that finally made the whole collection seem really real. That selvage really set me into a fit of giggles and grins!

So I was thrilled when Cindy from Around the Block Quilting offered to make a few pincushions from Tufted Tweets selvage. How adorable are these?! And she is ever so kindly giving two away to two lucky people. Just leave a comment here on my blog for a chance to win the red and orange pincushion. And for a second chance to win (the purple and green pincushion), visit Cindy's blog and leave a comment there. We'll each draw a random winner on 6/6. Good luck!




Make sure you visit Cindy's new store too. It called Sewing on the Edge and she has some super cute goodies over there. She's making the "themed" pincushions like the ones being given away. And in the near future she'll be adding more items goodies like journal covers, cup cozies and aprons.

p.s. I hear that Tufted Tweets has started arriving in local quilt stores! Wahoo!!! It hasn't arrived here in Austin yet, but I'm anxiously awaiting its arrival too! So keep me posted and as soon as you get your hands on it and start sewing up goodies, I hope you'll post pics in my Flickr group.

What sweet pincushions - what a lovely design in a useful format! I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of Tufted Tweets in the Austin area. In the meantime, I've just started a project with Donkeys and Wellies (will post to your Flickr group when I'm finished).

I LOVE the Tufted Tweets fabrics! And Cindy's pincushion giveaway for the SMS giveaway day was quite a big hit with quilters around here and mentioned several times at the last Portland Modern Quilt Guild get together.

I'd freak out too if I saw my name on the selvage--the closest I've come is my name as the colour --as in "Kelly Green"
--yeah--just not the same :)
