Cotton Floss book tour & give-away!

June 11th, 2011

I am so excited and so honored to be kicking off the Cotton Floss book tour! Cotton Floss is a brand new stitchery, quilting and sewing book by my dear friend Natalie Lymer of Cinderberry Stitches.  It is freaking amazing!  So cute you’ll be weeping on all your pages.

I’m so thrilled about Cotton Floss - it’s as if Natalie set out to create everything in the book just for me. Natalie has some other great news, but I’ll let my new sister share that.

This is Natalie.  ISNT SHE CUTE!  And look at her adorable space where she gives birth to all that cuteness (like Flat Nat - who traveled to me all the way from Australia and now makes her home in my studio!).

Shroomy love - I’m soooo going to make those!

There’s sooo much stuff in Cotton Floss that I want to make, and so many more of Natalie’s beautiful photos I want to show… but I have to not be greedy and let the others on the blog tour be able to use them, too. And the others tour members are like a stitch-n-laugh sleep-over dream team! Seriously, I want to have a slumber party with all of them!!

Cotton Floss International Dream Team tour dates:
Sunday 6/12    Me!
Monday 6/13    Amanda
Tuesday 6/14    Pam
Wednesday 6/15    Sarah
Thursday 6/16   Krista
Friday 6/17    Bari (Bari and I are in cahoots!)
Saturday 6/18    Shari
Sunday 6/19    Paige

Here are some of my pics… I just did a little 4″ finished block with one of Natalie’s drawings from the book, and surrounded it with 2″ finished squares. I think Flat Nat is eying it as a quilt for her - and it’s just her size.  A little bit of Happy Mochi Yum Yum

Some Lecien COSMO floss (which is like cotton butter) and Flat Nat’s needlebook

and finally some stitching in the truck while Hub’s was driving - and not finishing it because it got dark. (Dear Oregon, more street lights, please).

And finally the giveaway! Natalie so kindly gave me a copy of Cotton Floss to give to one lucky winner. I thought I’d throw in a little charm pack of Happy Mochi Yum Yum in case the winner wants to make a Flat Nat quilt too (maybe there’s someone small and flat in their life, too).
