Quilting and Beads

I’ve been thinking about it for weeks before (or instead of) falling to sleep, I even saw its color in front of me. Then newer colors as well that could also make it work. Finally last week I bought the new pintuck foot for my Elna 7300 and began to actualize.

Even though the foot didn’t work out (or I am clumsy), I still didn’t give up and kept trying until I achieved the result that I wanted to.

And here comes my favorite part where I already embroider the beads. :)

The Winners of the Raffle

The raffle closed down on Thursday night. Finally 960 tickets were sold, which is fantastic! Estella used the random number generator on Friday and got the winners. Everyone who purchased a ticket can check in the following blogpost whether they are among the lucky winners!
Even though I didn’t win, I still feel very lucky as I can be a part of a very loving and supporting team and I can experience what it’s like to have so many people join together on Etsy and on Facebook for a good cause.

I’d like to thank everyone for their help and support, and congratulations for all the winners!

You can find everything about this raffle in my previous posts or in Estella's blog:

Sandra’s items in her shop - thanks to everyone - are depleting at a high rate, but you may still go and purchase some of her beautiful ceramics!

And I curiously await who won my Blue Roses Coasters and in which direction they will depart to into the world. :)

Monday Moodboard - For A Friend

Every beautiful item is from Sandra's shop, Azulado on Etsy. You can find it here:

A few days before Christmas, our Etsy friend Sandra lost her husband to cancer. It was discovered in an advanced state and he was gone in a matter of months, forty years old. Sandra and her husband were self employed as restorers of historical tiles, so seven or eight months before his death they weren't able to work. He, too ill, she, taking care of him. They have a five years old boy.

Sandra's Etsy team, EST spirit wants to help her, and so we are organizing a raffle to collect money. There are more than FIFTY prizes to be won, all of them donated by her team members. We will run this raffle for ten days, and at the end of these ten days, more than FIFTY WINNERS will get a prize. There are items for women, men and children, for every taste. To win, you can buy tickets for 5 USD.
