Happy Friday to you!
Do you love sewing boxes! I do... ever so much. My lovely Mum gave me this beauty for my birthday recently!
I thought it might be fun to share some pics of our vintage treaures with each other. As a result, I'm having a little giveaway on the One Day In May Facebook Page over the weekend.
To enter my giveaway, simply take a photo of your vintage sewing box or button tin (PLEASE WRITE YOUR NAME on a small piece of paper and include it in the photo just like I've done in the above photo. This is to ensure photos aren't just copied and shared from the web. Then, share your photo in the comments on this Facebook post. You may be unable to share a photo from some phones and need to share from a PC.
Please share this post with friends, if you think they'd enjoy some "vintage fun" too.
Anemarie is a lovely quilting friend from Brazil that I've been able to meet through blogging. In recent years it has become "normal" for us to meet others across the world through social media. But, I still find it particularly special... knowing that a little of my creativity can become a part of someone else's in far off places. How great is that!
A while back, Anemarie made my "As Roses Bloom ~ Mini Quilt" (click HERE to visit my album). Anemarie added some beautiful dimensional butterflies to her quilt. You can see them and Anemarie's full quilt HERE.
Recently, Anemarie designed a new quilt called "Um Café no Jardim" ("A Coffee In the Garden" or "A Garden Café").
Her new design incorporates my techniques for fabric roses and rosebuds as used in "As Roses Bloom". It's so nice to have a connection to Anemarie's project.
Each year, ABPQ (The Brazilian Asscociation of Patchwork and Quilting) publish a calendar. Quilts are submitted to be selected for the calendar, and are voted for by the public. The 13 quilts with the most votes are used in the calendar.
Anemarie has submitted "Um Café no Jardim" to be considered. You can see all submitted quilts for the 2015 calendar and cast your vote HERE.
Click on the heart under each quilt to make your selection.
It's no secret who I voted for :)
If you have photos of your completed One Day In May projects or of your own designs with One Day In May elements, I'd love to see them.
