A Giveaway and an Update

Hello!

A few weeks ago I ordered some Q-snap Huggies from Christine's Q-Snap Huggies and she sent them *right* out to me.  Her shipping is amazing!  This was my first time using the huggies and I was surprised at how much extra fabric they were designed to hold outside of the q-snaps.  When I mentioned this to Christine, she went an extra mile (or two or three!) and made me two new huggies that were narrower, as I seldom use my smaller Snaps on projects large enough to have lots of extra fabric to tuck in.  I asked Christine if she would mind if I gave these two away so someone else could benefit by them and she said "Go Ahead!".  The Mary Engelbreit print will fit a 6x6 QSnap and the cute Coffee print is sized for an 8x8 or 8x11 Snap.  Remember, these will work best if you have lots of fabric to tuck in, otherwise your work area will be pretty small.  If you're interested go ahead and mention it in your comment on this post and I'll draw a name the next time I post an update. : )


Here are a few update pictures.  I *really* need to start on Cabin Fever again, but I'm not looking forward to it, so I think I'm procrastinating!

First, my progress on Oh Holy Night.  I am still enjoying this one so much!


Then a little more work on Jardin Prive's Douceur de Vivre... 


And a sneak peek at the exchange project I'm working on diligently.  This is SO pretty!!!


And finally a look at DH's progress on his Serenity Lighthouse...


Have a wonderful, wonderful week!!

Great stitching, I love the colours on the Jardin Prive's Douceur de Vivre.

I love DH's work, it will look wonderful. No to the giveaway, thank you, but good luck to the participants!

How thoughtful of Christine & of you : ) Do not include me in the drawing ... I already have covers for all my Q-Snaps ... but they are lovely & so are your WIPs!

Tricia, I am interested in the 8x8's. That is what I am using on my Crossed Wing Collection European Goldfinches and I am constantly trying to tuck all the fabric out of the way! ;o)

I like your progress! I can totally relate to procrastination! ;o)

Hope you have a blessed week!
Love, Heather

Great progress Tricia. Your husbands piece is coming along. He is doing an awesome job. I would love to be entered in your giveaway. I don't have any covers.

Thanks, Linda

Looking good. And Chris is awesome, isn't she. I love her huggies, and give her name out all the time. She's a wonderful lady!!

Love all your pieces you are working on, especially the Jardin Prive. I have a couple of her designs. I would love to be in on the drawing of the qsnap huggies. Thanks so much.

I'd love to be entered in your Q-Snap covers giveaway. My favourite size Q-Snap to stitch on is 8x8 no matter how large the project is (think Mirabilia) so they would definitely come in useful.

Lovely progress on your WiPs. The sheep in Douceur de Vivre are so cute.

Hugs,
Veronica.

The Jardin Prive is so delicate and pretty.
I've not seen the 'huggies' before, clever idea.

Cute little Q snap holders. Wonderful stitching as always, can't wait to see more.

Your WIPs are wonderful so far (I just love the Serenity Lighthouse), and please enter me in your drawing - I have q-snaps, but I have not tried the covers yet :)

Valhi said...

Please enter me in the Q-snap huggies drawing - just bought some Q-snaps and would love to try these!

Jackie said...

Morning Tricia. Very cute Q-snao Huggies. Do not enter me in the drawing.
I love the fabby on the Oh Holy Night piece which I believe will look gorgeous. Your progress is coming along onto your other pieces and of course, my favorite, your DH's Serenity Lighthouse. I absolutely love that little saying/quote.
Thanks for stopping in dear. I appreciate you.

Hi Tricia! I'm so glad the narrower huggies worked for your smaller projects! I'm going to offer them both ways from now on, either narrow for small projects or wider when you have a LOT of fabric to tuck inside for BAPs! So happy that everything worked out and I LOVE the adorable pin keep you sent me! THANKS THANKS!!!
