Our First Giveaway!

We recently realized that we've been writing this little blog for 6 months. That deserves some kind of acknowledgment and celebration, don't you think? How about a little giveaway? We are so thankful for the loyal readers who have followed us from the start and those who have joined us along the way. You guys make this little project more than worth it!

We've assembled a few things that we hope will strike your fancy. See below the photos for several options to win this little package.

Pincushion caddy
Featuring blue linen as well as prints by Amy Butler, Denyse Schmidt and Kaffe Fassett, comes with a few lovely pins. (Handmade by Jenny, from a pattern by Anna Maria Horner in Seams to Me, details on the sewing process here.)

  2. Well, I guess this giveaway is a good time to introduce myself since option one is to just say "hi." I've been following your blog for a few weeks and I love that it's a shared blog. I enjoy reading what both of you have to say to each other. Another cool thing is that Jenny is living in Seattle, which is super close to where I live. I like learning about the lives of people who live close by to me but have very different lives.

  4. I just found your blog today. I love that two of you are writing the blog--mixes things up a bit. I'm planning on scrolling through your archives today (I've seen a lot of wonderful little projects already). Thanks!

  5. I like your photos and your style. I like the up-cycled incorporation, and I find all of your craftiness inspirational. I also enjoy that it is a conversation instead of a monologue.

  7. SO many things about your blog appeal to me:
    - You've given me the sewing bug. I didn't know much about sewing before, but this blog has inspired me and encouraged me to make the baby blanket and my first article of clothing, a skirt, and more.
    - I'm from Nashville originally and now live in Portland, so I feel there's some sort of cosmic connection...
    - You're both obviously fun and learn with us.
    Thank you for keeping this up!
