tweets, announcement & giveaway!

Finally finished...

FlockTogetherFront

Introducing: the "flock together" quilt -- which will be listed in my soon-to-be, brand-spankin-new, can't-believe-I'm-going-to-do-it, etsy shop [scream]. The quilt measures 32" x 32", perfect for a playmat, stroller quilt, wall hanging, whatever. The embroidered birds are adapted from our favorite "Make a World" drawing book by Ed Emberley (heart you, Ed!!). And you can't really tell from the pics, but the birds sit atop the lightest, prettiest baby blue linen that I'm currently loving.

So, that's the elusive "limb" that these little birds, along with many other what(k)not items, will be going out on. I'm not quite sure what all this etsy shop business will entail, but I'm looking forward to the journey.

And to thank you, sweet peeps, for accompanying me in this blog space, I'm planning on giving away a little what(k)not sumthin sumthin. Not sure what it'll be yet, but I'll figure it out sometime before my intended October 1st grand opening (as grand as pushing an upload item button can be)! If I were clever, I'd figure out a way to upload you some punch n pie, too. 'Cause, every party is better with punch n pie (heart you, Cartman!).

Please check back for giveaway details, more shop what(k)nots and to wish me luck, 'cause I'll need whole lots of it!

Mel,

You have to keep me posted on how your online shop goes--I am really curious to hear about your experiences. (We are particularly curious because as the kids get older, we want to encourage them to get entrepreneurial. They were captivated by the kid who sells lemonade on the outskirts of the farmer's market.)

BEEEEEAUTIFUL Quilt!!
