Peek of the Week - March 18, 2011

It's Friday! Peek of the Week Day!

Our new Friday feature - the Peek of the Week - is all about you. I want to hear (and share with my readers) what wowed you this week. It could be a cool finished project, a work in progress, a personal accomplishment, a cute kid moment, or something that surprised you.

If we could peek into your week - what would you want to show us?

I'll start because there is something HUGE I've been waiting all week to show you! Happily Home Sewn has a new home!
A few weeks ago, this lovely lady, Aurora, contacted me. She had seen my goodies on etsy and had a proposition for me.

She was soon to open a fabulous new fabric store in the Santa Fe Arts District. The store would have the sweetest fabrics and softest fibers for sale, and would offer classes in the sewing studio and knitting lounge. And...a boutique! And she wants my work in it!

Look at all those yummy fabrics (some of which I have already purchased (see?))

And, oh the fibers. Yards and yards and yards of yarns.

Oh, and me! More specifically, my Happily Home Sewn wares. The lovely Aurora asked if I would like to sell HHS in her new shop, Fabric Bliss, which had its grand opening this Tuesday!

I am so excited to have HHS in its first brick and mortar store! If you're nearby you simply MUST visit Fabric Bliss. Go for the fabrics and the yarn. Go for the fabulous handmade goodies (most by local artists and crafters) in the boutique. Don't sew or knit? Go for the classes or private lessons and let your obsession begin. Go talk to Aurora who is knowledgeable, helpful, and just plain lovely and whose journey to fabric store owner is super inspiring. Just go.

Alright dearies - that's my Peek of the Week. Now it's your turn!

Here's how it works:
1. Each Friday I'll post my peek of the week, and give you space to link us up to yours.
2. Blog about your Peek of the Week - whatever it is. Whatever happened that made you proud, laugh, smile, inspired, excited, or just plain happy - now that's worth sharing.
3. Include a link to this blog or put the Peek of the Week button (on the sidebar) in your post.
4. Link your blog post using the InLinkz button below.
5. Visit some of the other linked posts to see what folks are glowing about this week.
Leave them some comment love and expect some to be coming your way.

If you don't get a chance to get here on Friday, feel free to link your post up later.
The InLinkz button will be active for 5 days.
