Not so Grumpy

No more Little Miss Grumpy for me - the mail has come! You may (or may not!) remember this bag that I made for the SEWN giveaway some time ago?
Bag from Amy Butler fabrics
Well, I entered it in the Amy Butler Midwest Modern competition way back in June. And blow me down, I was one of 15 lucky winners. My prize parcel arrived this week.
There are certain packages which should come with the following label:
WARNING - Considerable risk of hyperventilation upon opening.
This is one such package.
In the most generous of prizes, I received four of Amy Butler's newest patterns; 'The Liverpool', 'Sweet Harmony' bag, 'Field Bag' and a very cute Mini Dress/Top. All are delicious!
New & delicious Amy Butler patterns
There was also a copy of Amy's recently released software which is a gorgeous package of 22 more projects for my 'to do' list! My favourite? This super cute floor cushion with my favourite of trims, pom poms.
And then there was fabric too!! Can you see why I was hyperventilating?!
Amy Butler gorgeousness
Sandi Henderson has posted a great video interview with Amy Butler at the recent Quilt Market. You can watch it here, and see for yourself what an unassuming, gracious & genuinely sweet person Ms Butler is. I am very thankful for her generosity in offering up such an unbelievable prize.
You can see all the competition entries here, and the winning entries here.
(My Amy Butler obsession can be traced back, fairly and squarely, to the influence of Chookyblue. The first time I met her was over a little basket of bargain AB fat quarters. I spent a fun morning last weekend with the Chook, talking incessantly about gardening & quilting for the limited time we had).


  1. Congratulations! What a wonderful prize, so much to hyperventilate about! Having attended one of Amy's lectures, I can vouch for how unassuming and gracious she is. She is one of a kind, and always happy to share information. A great inspiration!
