Hey, NYC peeps. You should all go down and see the Luv-able & Hug-able exhibit at Gallery Hanahou! (from Dec 9 - Jan 14) The popular plush show's theme this year is "Wear-able" meaning that most everything there will be plush that you can wear! There is so much amazing work by some of my fav artists. This is my first year participating and I have three kitty necklaces with braided silk ribbon. And also I think one of my favorite things I've ever made, a bunny muff, EEEEEE! I can't wait to make more of these guys. This one has little stitched snowflakes on it but I can't wait to make one with a bunch of sparkly beads and sequins for all the snow. I can't wait!

Hey folks, we have a winner! My lovely intern Sarah picked KerryKaheCakesb43 as the winner of my new printed patterns. Woo hoo! Congrats Kerry! And thanks to everyone who commented. I really appreciate all your kind words and support. -alyssa

Hi peeps! Man, this has been my busiest holiday season ever, which is awesome, but exhausting. Don't worry I'll be posting more regularly soon. The No Coast Craft-o-Rama went great this weekend. It was super fun hanging out with my crafty friends. I still have to clean up everything still (and from Quilt Market too) but I'll get there.

Thanks to everyone who's stuck with the bloggy blog during my lack of posting. I'm going to do a little giveaway for all y'all! I'll be giving away my 4 new printed patterns to one lucky reader. All of you who guessed alligator here were right, my first sewing pattern is the little alligator in the first two pics. He comes with a fold out template and a booklet of easy to follow instructions. The other 3 patterns are my new puppy embroidery patterns, Boston, Golden and Maltese. Each puppy is sitting in a pretty border. The best part is that the patterns include an iron on transfer, woo hoo!

To enter the giveaway just leave a comment below. I'll pick a name randomly on Monday. Then you'll still get the patterns before Christmas! All the patterns are available as printed patterns and as pdf downloads in my etsy shop. Thanks all! -alyssa
