Eat. Sleep. Decorate.- 1st GIVEAWAY!

It is Monday! Back to the was everyone's weekend? In case you didn't guess from my hint on Friday, this is what the Hub's and I were up to this weekend:

{This was very much the beginning stage!}

I can't wait to share the finished product sometime this week. We are working on the finishing touches tonight and tomorrow.

Okay.....on to the exciting part of this post today. It is Eat Sleep Decorate's first Giveaway! I decided I needed to celebrate my new blog design. And who better to help me celebrate than my mother-in-law, Barb!

Barb is an amazing sewer. She has been sewing and creating since she was a little girl. She has made me many fantastic bags, table runners, pillows, curtains, quilts, etc. Whenever I come up with an idea, she runs with it and says "no problem!" I really don't think there is anything she CAN'T sew!

She started designing her own bags over the past couple of years and is now creating patterns for Quilt Woman. Her patterns are just fabulous and easy enough for the average sewer to try! (believe me)

Here are a few of Barb's fantastic bags that were made directly from her pattern designs:

  1. well, sad but true , this may be the only way I will ever get a Barb Original! Now I know it is because she is always sewing stuff for her favorite daughter-in-law!! Favorite one - the small Cape Cod - I love the smaller holes because they are smaller and don't detract from the fabric or look of the bag - they are more a function of the bag and not a feature - also if it is THAT fabric in particular it reminds me of fall in the south - the colors of our season may be changing to the darker reds and browns and yet we still have these beautiful accents of flowers! Love what you are doing Amy - keep it up!

  2. HI Amy! Love the Blog. My favorite is BH101 (the first one) I just love the print and the colors and I am a mommy, so it is big enough to throw a couple of diapers in and a sippy cup and not have to carry a diaper bag :) . What a talented mother in law! Nichole Hackmann
