Where Bloggers Create & A Giveaway!


 I'm excited to again be participating in the "Where Bloggers Create" party for 2012 hosted by Karen Valentine of My Desert Cottage. Take a minute to look at her site and leave her some love. This year I have this adorable 5-fat quarter pack, 2 spools of Mettler thread and an Olfa cutter as a giveaway on my blog.
Just become a follower and leave me a comment and you will be entered into the random drawing. The winner will be chosen in 10 days.

I am very fortunate to have two rooms dedicated to my hobbies. One for sewing/quilting and one for scrapbooking/crafting. This year I'm going to focus on my sewing room as I have spent quite a bit of time in there over the last 12 months as my business continues to grow. I create custom designed baby blankets and if you are interested take a look at my website Sun 7 Designs.  I also have a Facebook page that I update regularly with the newest designs that I have created.  I would love for you to stop by and take a peek.
Well, I'm off to stroll through everyone else's studios... Enjoy the hop and thanks for stopping by.
Just some of the soft minkee fabrics that I use to create my custom designed baby blankets.



My collection of dress mannequins.


I'm always searching for different things for my sewing room and couldn't resist these clay buttons on sale at my local fabric store.... they look great on my wall.

My latest purchase...  a cute doll's pram.  Isn't it adorable?
My "sock monkey friends" always watching over me....

A couple of baby blankets and a few packaged and ready to go out to their new homes!

And.... my motto!
Thank you so much for stopping by and don't forget to become a follower and leave me a comment to be entered in the draw.  Enjoy your day!

Valery, I love all the special touches you have made to decorate your sewing room! Your display of dress forms is awesome. The wall hanging storing your thread spools is so colorful. Looks like such a calm place to create! You have such an amazing talent to create your beautiful blankets for all the lucky little ones receiving them!

I adore your room! Those wall buttons and needle/thread are so fun! My husband just built me a cutting table for my sewing "nook" which is really just a space in our bungalow attic but I'm so excited to have a somewhere to lay out fabric other than my dining room table.

Thanks for the chance and for sharing your space. I get such inspiration seeing everyone's craft rooms.

Maureen Hayes said...

Really lovely room, so many things I wanted to comment on. . . I am a HUGE sock monkey fan, so I enjoyed seeing your friends who "watch over you", your dress forms are beautiful and those buttons and needle and thread on the wall are spectacular! Where does everyone find those vintage printers trays that you have your thread in? Love the hat boxes with sewing sayings on them. If this is just one of your craft rooms, you are a very lucky lady!

Thanks for the tour, I enjoyed it very much.
