Welcome Sew Mama Sew readers! I assume you’re all here because you like winning free stuff, if you don’t know what I’m talking about, read more here.
I started this blog as a place to show off the cross stitches I was making. Over time I’ve started doing a lot more besides just cross stitching.
Two years ago I started doing English paper piecing and I was instantly hooked. It had the portability I loved about cross stitch and embroidery, but was quilting. I had a sewing machine but I rarely used it, so EPP was perfect for me.
In May of this year I got a new Janome Magnolia 7360 and I’ve been constantly working on building my sewing skills and I am feeling like I’ve done enough that I can actually call myself a quilter now.
Every month on 2015 I tried out a new skill as part of Try Something New Every Month. I just finished up my last one for December which you can read about here. Make sure you stop by to find out what Stephanie from Swoodson Says and I have in store for 2016.
I’ve got a lot of new things in store for 2016 and I’d love for you to stick around and read more! I’ll be starting a newsletter in the new year and sending out a free pattern, so make sure you sign up for that! You can also follow me on Bloglovin. And you can always get a peek at what I’m working on over at Instagram!
For Issue 8 of One Thimble I made my first English Paper Piecing pattern. This is a great simple pattern to get started with EPP and create something small that won’t take too long. I’ll be giving away three copies of this pattern, just enter below with Rafflecopter. Good luck!
