I'm mostly an art quilter, with a love of crafts and bag making thrown in. I try to blog as often as I can about my works in progress, and I'd love it if you'd stop in again! My work in the last couple of years has been broadly divided into two groups. The first is an ongoing series of quilts inspired by the style of illuminated manuscripts and calligraphy, and depicting parts of the Episcopal liturgy.

|Peace be With You|
The other "category" is really just a catch all for everything else. I'm a scientist in my other life, so some of my quilts are based on my research or other scientific themes and some are just whatever I felt like making at the time.

And now for the giveaway!
This year I'm giving away two packages. Each of them contain a handmade ornament, half a yard of Lotta Jansdotter fabric (from the Bella line), a quilt-in-a-cup kit, and a book.
The books are Pat Nickels and Sue Holly's Stitched Raw Edge Applique and Joan Ford's Cut the Scraps: 7 Steps to Quilting your Way Through Your Stash.
The quilt-in-a-cup kits are a super fun project for making your own quilted travel mug. They contain all you need to make the project except scrap fabric (so you can use whatever fabric your want).
Finally, the ornaments are perfect for your Christmas tree if you're a tree household, and can also be pinned to a bulletin board or wall for a bit of winter cheer if you aren't! I made them while playing around with my embroidery machine, something I don't do often enough.
To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite holiday activity is! Make sure you're not a no-reply blogger or I won't be able to contact you if you win.
Good luck to all, and I'll randomly select 2 winners on the afternoon of December 16th.
Thanks again for visiting and to Sew Mama Sew for hosting!
UPDATE: Please please please check to see if you are a no-reply blogger. If you are, I'll have no way to contact you if you win, and two of the first three very kind people who commented are no-reply. If you aren't sure, check out this post. If you'd like to stay a no-reply blogger, please put your e-mail in the text of the comment. Thanks!! I'd hate for someone to win who I couldn't get in touch with!
