200 Wallflowers

First off, thank you for entering the Let’s Sew Together giveaway!  I’m happy you’re as excited about the book as I am.
How about one more peek at baby Glow?  YES.  What a doll.

And the lucky book winner is….
#318 – Sasha who said: This looks like so much fun!!
Congrats Sasha, I’ll contact you with more details!

And speaking of details, I have to share these photos sent to me by a reader in Malaysia.
Yanti (third from the left) and her cousin used the Wallflower tutorial to make 200 flowers for another cousin’s wedding (the wedding couple is in the middle, in gray.  And her daughter is in the other photo below).

Wow!  That’s a lot of napkins! And a lot of flowers. It’s absolutely gorgeous.

Yanti says, “we received lots of compliments from family and guests about the backdrop we made, which made me happy.  And it was even more meaningful that my cousins and I got together to do it ourselves.”

Oh Yanti, THAT makes me smile.
From different sides of the world, two moms can inspire and share with each other.
Blogging truly is amazing!

Have a wonderful Memorial Day friends.
