A friend of mine from the San Antonio Modern Quilt Guild (SAMQG), Jen Eskridge, just posted today that she’s starting a new Small Sews Gifts Sew Along that is right up my alley! It’s mostly up my alley because I kinda suggested it. You see, the SAMQG has a gift exchange at their annual Holiday Party and this year we decided that instead of swapping a specific item (in the past we’ve swapped mug rugs and pillows), this year we voted for leaving it open slightly to include ANY small item (that was my suggestion to add to the voting options for our guild vote). We even created a totally awesome GROUP Pinterest board so that we can ALL pin our ideas and see what everyone else thinks is fun to make. Since it’s a gift exchange, the sort where you can steal an item three times before it’s “frozen” and what you get is a complete mystery until you open it, the suspense is really building! As as I’m sort of a Last Minute Lucy, I have of course not made a single thing (but pinned lots of ideas) for this exchange. So I have to get in gear which is WHY the Sew Along that Jen just announced is PERFECT timing! I hope you’ll play along because she even has some PRIZES lined up!!
I just love a little extra motivation for something I already want to do! Oh and did I happen to mention that Jen is a published author AND offers amazing quilty workshops!? I’m hoping the HMQG will be able to host her for a workshop some time next year. Her hexagons are awesome!
Check back next week for another bloggy friend!
