Tula Pink Pincushion Giveaway

i am thrilled that my buddie, Sha, from Craizee Corners has invited me to share with her today as a guest blogger!  when she told me about the her new Designer or the Month series that she is doing with the Fat Quarter Shop, i was excited to learn that Tula Pink would be the first featured designer. poor Sha opened a can of worms when she started that conversation!

ME:  TULA PINK, really?  You mean the Tula Pink that I adore?!?!  The one who designs fabrics that are magical, whimsical, and fun?!?!  The one who is witty and personable?  The one who calls her fabric fans “Tula Troops”?  The one that recently released the Prince Charming line that I can’t stop looking at?  The one that somehow speaks to my heart with her hidden design treasures?

SHA:  *with a stunned look on her face*  Yes, that’s the one.

ME:  Oh, I love Tula Pink…I think Sha rolled her eyes at me.  🙂

 all kidding aside, when i first saw the Prince Charming line it took my breath away.  i could somehow relate to these designs in a way i’ve never related to fabric before.  i didn’t just love the colors and the graphics, it seemed to tell me a story.  i look at it and I’m taken back to my childhood dreams, taken back to a time when life was full of wonder and expectation.  Tula has always given us hidden treasures in her designs, but Prince Charming was somehow different for me.  those hidden treasures leaped right off the fabric and into my heart.

i knew this new line would be part of my fabric collection, possible forever, so i did what any smart girl would do.  i purchased my fat quarter bundle from the Fat Quarter shop the day it was available.  imagine my surprise when i received it the very next day!!  i hobbled to the front door, as i was still recovering from surgery at that time, and ripped open my package like a fat girl rips open a candy bar!!!  let’s just say, I looked a little crazy for a moment, but  i was also a little star struck.  how in the world would i ever be able to cut those precious babies up? not happening in my lifetime.

enter Sha and her guest blogger series!  inviting me to join her series gave me the push i needed to actually use my stash of Prince Charming.  i whipped up this cute little pincushion caddy using a pattern by Abbey Lane Quilts.  it was super easy to put together and it only took me a few hours to complete.
