Winnings Received...

No, I did not win the lotto...    :(
You're likely thinking I haven't been "living up to" my blog name Stitch Lines lately. You are right, there hasn't been a lot of stitchin' goin' on... at least not that I've shown. But today I can now show you one small project that's complete, mailed off and now received. Several weeks ago, Sheila won my "1000 Posts Giveaway", the offering being a quilted iPad case. She was happy with that idea (not sure what I would have offered if she didn't have an iPad or tablet... haha) Anyway she told me she'd like one in blue. Since I've been on a bit of a green kick lately, I chose several blue fabrics but threw in a little green as well. Here is the resulting case. I make small adjustments/changes and notes with each case I make, and after four, each slightly different, I think I've got it down pat now. I've decided I prefer the strips on the outside pocket running diagonally as on this one and on Laura's case.
I will have some more "stitching" to show you soon, I have started a new miniature in reds and lights, using up many very small triangles left over from a larger quilt. The blocks are 2.25" square with 49 pieces in each block... Yes, I know. I'm crazy... Certifiable, probably..  I have another Miniatures class coming up in 10 days so that always spurs me on to get going on a new one...
And last night a loyal reader (Hi JK!) told me she wants to see what's going on with all the green and neutral squares I've been cutting, so you'll be seeing that soon too...   :)
I will be teaching two classes at the Nova Scotia Fibre Arts Festival in October, info is slowly being added to their website. As soon as the website is completely updated, I'll be adding a link on my sidebar. Watch for it!

Peace,
Linda

Life is a story. Make yours the best seller.

49 pieces in 2 1/2"...I can't even imagine it. However, I have no doubt it is perfect! I've seen other evidence to know better than to have any doubts.

I love the iPad case and those are some of my favorite colors.

The iPad case for your giveaway is nice, I'm sure Sheila will love it.

Linda said...

I salute you! The size may be miniature, but the work is full size!

Carol- Beads and Birds said...

Lovely pouch. Funny how we name our blogs and what people expect from the title. I'm Beads and Birds. Not much beading going on, but I do add the bling to my projects. And the birds are always around, but I just don't seem to blog about either much anymore. But that's my name and I'm stickin' to it!!

Have a great weekend.
xx, Carol

So beautiful Linda ... what an awesome giveaway. I think I'll be doing a giveaway soon too with some of my treasures that I am going to have to part with soon when we move. Can't decide exactly what would be a special giveaway but I'll come up with something nice. Thanks for your encouragement and leaving such a nice one ... we're on our way to a new life. Hope you are having a nice weekend the weather here has been spectacular. Celebrating 4th of July here by doing lots of packing and sorting what goes here and what goes where ??? To say I'm confused is an understatement. Love and Hugs.

Very pleasing combination of fabrics...Sheila will love it. Planning ahead I see...October...I hope that it's a long way off. =D

Lesley said...

What a sweet case! Love the fabrics you chose and the diagonal pattern you used. Well done!

Donna said...

Thanks for continuing to visit me, even though I am not a very good blogger these days, LOL. That sure is a beautiful case. Love the color combination and the fabric appears to be Bali - my favorite! You must do the miniatures with paper piecing. I did a little bit of sewing last month. As I get caught up with things, I hope to spend a little bit more time in my lovely sewing/creating studio.

Love Sheila's new iPad pocket, Linda, and I know how much she'll appreciate having it. I'm hoping to get to the fibre fest this year. I even went ahead and booked overnight accommodations...I have high hopes! It will be great to meet you!
