Random Cool Stuff - Lots of giveaways included!

A list of random cool stuff:

  • How about receiving a Fabric Bomb? Elizabeth @ Elizabeth's Quarter has come up with this really fun idea: someone sends you a parcel containing fabric and other sewing goodies and your challenge is to make something with them and photograph/post about it. You then send your own fabric bomb to someone else, starting a creative chain reaction. If you're interested in joining, read Elizabeth's Fabric Bomb post here. Fun!

  • My bloggy friend Mara is having a fantastic Big Birthday Bash Giveaway on her blog Secretly Stitching to celebrate two birthdays: her daughter's and her own! Go and take a glimpse at the wonderful prizes you could win!

Plum and June
  • Last year I joined the Let's Get Acquainted Blog Hop organised by Beth @ Plum and June. This Blog Hop changed this blog's life completely and a year later I have made many good bloggy friends thanks to this experience. This year the event has changed name and expanded. Below you can find the full list of The 2014 New Quilt Bloggers. Beth is also having a great giveaway this week here. Don't miss visiting all the talented new bloggers!
