Here is the finished version of our January free project. The project is no longer available for free download but will be available soon for purchase.

Included in the PDF are the photos of our sample to use as a guide.

I've created a flickr group so please show off your princess when she is done!

Our first giveaway!

I headed over to the MODA warehouse today where I got to drool in their showrooms for a couple of hours. (No children under 16 allowed in the warehouse). Since I had my son with me that was as far as I could go. I got the ball rolling on getting our account set up with them so stay tuned for moda products to make an appearance on my website more and more. I did come home with a honeybun of some yummy fabrics as my first blog giveaway! Clementine by Me and My Sister Designs for MODA is full of sunny oranges, lavendars, sky blues, and lime greens with fun, funky prints and patterns. What a perfect way to add some sunshine to these gloomy winter days!

To enter, you can earn up to THREE chances to win. Winner will be selected by random drawing from all comments received on Wednesday, January 19th by noon CST. Be sure to either include your email address or make sure it is available on your profile so I can contact you if you win!
1. Leave me a comment telling me what you would make with your honey bun.
2. Become a follower of my blog, or tell me if you already are.
3. Post about the giveaway on your blog, facebook, twitter, etc. and let me know by posting a link in your comment.

Update to pattern for January

Just an additional note to let you know that if you would like to add the pieced border that will be released in a couple of days, please trim your embroidery block to 14 1/2" x 14 1/2" (14 inches finished)

Also, I know there has been some trouble with downloading for a few of you, so until I have a better solution, I have also added the pattern available to download via Google Documents, which does not require a sign in. Please let us know if you are having difficulty downloading the pattern, and someone will be happy to email it to you directly.

Thank you all for all the comments and support. This has been a definite learning curve, but we appreciate all the help and advice we've received. Please send us a link or email of your finished versions of the pattern so we can all ooh and ahh over it!
