Giveaway: Amelie Purse Pattern from Geta's Quilting Studio

In giving you are throwing a bridge across the chasm of your solitude. –Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

A couple of weeks ago, I put my name in on Giveaway Day at Geta's Quilting Studio and I was delighted to be one of the winners! Geta has so many beautiful designs. I bought her Flower Ball and Flower Power quilt patterns a while ago {which I will eventually get to} and recently, I made some bags from her Amelie pattern.

While I was perusing her fantastic patterns trying to decide which ones to choose, an idea began to hatch. What if I were to use part of my giveaway winnings as a giveaway of my own? The Amelie purse was so fun to make and everyone who has seen it loves it. I've received lots of compliments on it. The mother of one of the girls I made one for loved it so much that she even ordered the pattern!

It has tons of pockets and would look fabulous in an infinite number of fabrics and colors.

So, I asked Geta if I could use one of the patterns I won from her as a giveaway on my blog and she kindly consented. I'm so excited to share an Amelie Purse Pattern in PDF downloadable format with one of you! I would like to send a huge thank you to Geta for her generous giveaway! And for those of you who can't wait for the giveaway or want to try one of her amazing quilts, her patterns are on sale for $5 each for two days only, through May 28th!

What a great giveaway - I love Geta's bag patterns!
The rain stopped long enough this morning for me to sit outside with my coffee and watch a family of baby blue tits who had just left their nest!

A good thing that happened to me this last week is that I felt really good and managed to get a few of the paper pattern blocks that I was testing done and back to the designers with my comments. This is something that I really enjoy doing.

The best moment of my week so far has been planning to have my awesome grandson over for a sleepover on Friday night. Plus my parents will be here as well so although I'll have a full house all my family will be here together - Im beyond excited.

What a lovely giveaway Elizabeth. Im keeping my fingers crossed.

I managed to spend some time to get a lot of prep work and stitching done on some of my swap gifts. It feels good to get a little ahead. Thanks for the lovely giveaway, Elizabeth.

Well, it didn't happen to me, specifically, but this week spring has finally arrived here in Alberta. The trees are mostly leafed out and the May Day and apple trees are starting to bloom. Two wonderfully warm sunny days put me in a great mood!

Sister Mills, that is so kind of you to let me enter your drawing for the bag! :)
Something good that has happened this week was that I finished school and got to try out my new sewing machine!
