12 Weeks of Christmas Tutorial and Giveaway

I just wanted to stop in and let you all know that I am guest posting today over at the FreeSpirit Fabrics blog with a holiday themed tutorial for their 12 Weeks of Christmas Series. 

Flowering Coaster Tutorial

If you like portable holiday projects and are looking for a fun gift to make for a friend or hostess, this tutorial is for you. : ) Hop over to the FreeSpirit blog to get the full instructions.

FreeSpirit is also sponsoring a fun giveaway over here at Echinops & Aster today. Would you like to win a charm pack of gorgeous Field Study by Anna Maria Horner? (I sure would!) ; )
Here's how to win:
  • Since it's the week of Thanksgiving here in the U.S., I'd like to know what you are most thankful for. Leave me a comment here letting me know.
  • Followers of my blog also get a bonus entry. Just let me know in a second comment.

Giveaway is open through Friday, November 23 at 10 PM PST Thanks! The giveaway is now closed. I will select a winner at random. Please make sure I have a way to contact you should you win, otherwise another winner will be selected. No purchase is necessary and odds of winning depend on the number of entries.

  1. I am thankful for my family and the fact that our son will be here for a visit soon! I'm also thankful to live in an area where I have not had to worry about natural disasters. I just sent a bunch of coats for Hurricane Sandy victims and that's really made me aware of how lucky I am.
