    I have been wanting to experiment with the TAP papers. They look way cool! I have so many projects in mind. Thanks for the chance to try something new. :)

    I am Disabled so I have lots of time to craft. I have been knitting socks, mittens, gloves, hats(an annual process) and am now knitting a sweater for my daughter for her birthday. I also have been rubber stamping and cardmaking.
    I also have continued my quiltmaking for Christmas and other special occasions for my family and friends and sometimes something for myself!

    I also subscribe to your newsletter and love it.

    I am working on some quilt tops this summer and also trying to quilt a few other and bind them. Also trying to cover some notebooks and make postcards for the holidays.

    I will be making 32 ATCs for a swap and some small hand stitched art quilts.

    This summer I’m helping my daughters make baby quilts for their friends.

    Can’t imagine a more fun package to start a new piece of art with. TAP is one of my favorite things.

    Thank you for the opportunity to enter this contest. The artistic inspiration in the prize could be just the thing to motivate me to finish up a few of those UFP’s lurking in the corners of my sewing room!

    What a wonderful way to demonstrate surface design options by running this contest. I’m integrating paper and fabric in books and these products would be fun to try.

    I would love to try these products. My mind is constantly on go! I seem to find beauty all around me and pull those golden threads of thought together to create sometimes, something quite wonderful.

    I would like to have a go at it.

    I’m just finishing up ( label) a piece that is all done with curved piecing. An artist in Tillamook, Oregon has taken 10 photos for a contest that will benefit the Latimer Textile Museum. Four of us could sign up for each photo to interpret the image in fabric. I did lots of free motion quilting to get the texture that I wanted to portray a field of wild grasses.

    I have to try the Lutradur and get busy with the TAP. I’ve just signed up for a booth at our local Holiday Faire and I want to do something new. Hope this is it!

    Thanks for letting me entering your giveaway. I have subscribed to your newsletters. This summer I have been working on my daughters scrapbook for her shower and upcomming wedding.

    It is exciting to evolve from simply following a pattern or making traditional blocks to start dyeing and painting and embellishing! My latest experiments involve my own hand dyes and brushing up on embroidery stitches. Laura Wasilowski books are sooo fun. I have a bunch of little quilts waiting in the wings for practicing some free motion.

    I’m working on a small silk piece that I’ve done a stitched resist on. The stitching is leaf shape, has been dyed and the resist stitching removed, and now it’s layered and I’m doing more stitching before I dye it again.

    Have (3) quilts to complete with fabric scraps inherited from my mother. She began this project in 1971 with fabrics used 1953 to 1971 to sew all the family clothing. The pattern she used was sent to her by a great aunt who had made a similar quilt with my mother’s grandmother in early 20th century. I have that quilt and the letter containing the pattern template sent to my mother by her aunt. I would love to win this contest, “be modern”, and join the generations with a label created with the blog prize.

    What a wonderful giveaway. I’ve been wanting to try the Lutradur since I first heard Heidi Rand talk about using it.

    I just finished a guild raffle quilt (for charity). It will be raffled off next May. I also completed the top of a paper pieced quilt with a million pieces of paper! (At least it seemed that way when removing the paper!) I’m now working on a stack n whack variation with too many pieces. I need something simpler for my next top!
