Hear, Hear! We've Got An Announcement!

Dear readers, we've got an announcement to make: we're launching a fun contest and sew/stitch-along on Monday!

In the spirit of Spring and freshening things up around the house, we decided to focus on making things for our own homes in April. And why not invite all of you to join in? Instead of making gifts, clothing or whatever else always tops the priority list, how about some lovely handmade goodness for your own nest?

Feather Your Nest will be a month-long event beginning next week. All through April, Angel and I will show progress on our own projects, fabulous guests will share tutorials, and some lucky winner(s) will win prizes donated by awesome sponsors.

Feather Your Nest

That's right! Feather Your Nest will also be a contest. We want you all to feel motivated to make things for your own home and to get creative while doing so. So there will be some lovely prizes at stake! Details of the contest and its requirements are posted here. Start thinking along these lines: you'll need to make something 1. for your own home, 2. including stitches -- so it can be sewn, knitted, felted, embroidered -- and 3. it must involve some repurposed or upcycled material.

Spruce up your home, show off your project(s) and get a chance to win some awesome goodies.

Are you excited yet? I know my list of housewares to make is 3 miles long and I can't wait to share what I'm going to be working on. Angel is about to move back into her newly remodeled house (she is currently packing and painting, hence M.I.A. for a little bit, but back in full force soon), and she will have plenty to make for the new and improved space.

We are SO excited about Feather Your Nest, it should be great fun! Just wait until you find out who the judges are, what our guests will be sharing, and what prizes will be up for grabs. Whee!

What are you going to be making? All the details for Feather Your Nest are now posted. Go sign up here!

(I've been working on a custom piece of burlap art and couldn't resist whipping one up for this event! I hope you like it. There will be a button to share in Monday's post or you can go here to grab the image.)


  1. What a wonderful idea!! And, I adore your button, too! I hope I can contribute, this sounds so perfect for this time of year!! :)

    1. Hi Maureen, thanks so much for your sweet words on my button!! I'm so touched that you would say that, considering your fabric applique and free motion work is so ah-mazing!

      We would love it if you joined into the Feather Your Nest fun, I think it's going to be a good time. :)
