About Me

South Louisiana
I have been married for 20 years to a great husband and we have 8 children ranging in age from 1 to 18 years. I am a homeschooling mom, which can be very challenging. I love sewing, knitting, reading, gardening and have recently started oil painting. I love to create. I really want to have a blog to show off some of the stuff I create, but I also want to share about my life and family. email me at ctrich8@bellsouth.net

Sew Mama Sew Giveaway prize



Sorry I am a little late. Here are the pictures of the pincushion I am giving away. It is the pattern from Anna Maria Horner's book Seams to Me. I made myself one a few weeks ago, and I love it. So nice for carrying around with you while you are doing some hand sewing. It is nice and big too, room for lots of pins. I am including a pack of turquoise head pins with the cushion.

Everyone who responded to the previous post will definitely be included in the drawing : D

Awesome giveaway! I'm in need of a pincushion to use in the living room when I do applique and other little sewing projects. Let me tell you it's not nice to accidentally find a missing pin or two! Plus turquoise is my fav color, probably because it was my grandmother's. I live in Texas so howdy neighbor! Up until this year I've had season tickets to the Bossier Shreveport Mudbugs. I hope to visit South Louisiana sometime in the near future.
