Flannel Fans Unite!
Wowzers! I had no idea the amount of flannel love that was happening in the universe and feel all has been revealed to me (Jeff and I were eating at our favorite Indian lunch buffet today and overheard a woman sitting by herself, saying very loudly at her cell phone "so much has been revealed to me and I can't wait to share it with you, its amazing". We were without a doubt intrigued and wondered over 4 plates of curried vegetables, rice and naan just what she was referring to. This is a long explanation of why I felt the need to use the word revealed in my first sentence. I just didn't want you to be in the dark about my word choices. I am a caring person like that.)
I decided that accompanying the two winning names of my flannel giveaway should be the full reveal on those sweet little chicks. So above is the Henny Penny & Six Chicks project that is one of the nursery sewing projects in my upcoming book Handmade Beginnings. Underneath Henny's soft, quilted wings are strips of velcro that those little velcro baby wings can attach to before all six babies are rocked to sleep. Sweet, huh? I love this project, and it was the perfect opportunity to use the cozy soft flannels. Now on to those flannels and the two winners!

I have two friends expecting their first babies this next summer and I can't wait to make them baby blankets out of these flannels! I'm hoping one of them is having a girl because the Little Honey Heather is my favorite!

I can't believe there are so many comments already! Well, I should have know...you are amazing and all of us want a chance to holds those flannels in our hands. I do love them all and it is so hard to pick a single favorite. They are all just so beautiful and I am hoping that Santa brings me some in a few weeks. Thanks for being so inspiring and sharing little bits of your world with us!
Congrats Betsy and Andrea on winning a big stack of flannels that will allow you to make Henny Penny & 600 chicks, no doubt! Email me at am.at.annamariahorner.dot.com to claim your loot!
I cannot believe we had over 1500 entires- thats insane! I would send you all some if I could, I really really would. For the rest of you, be sure to drop over to Craftzine before Noon PST on Friday, December 11th and sign up on their mailing list for a chance to win a whole pile of other things that I've offered over there. That could knock a lot of presents off your gift list all at once!
Okay, since I shared a little more from Handmade Beginnings I thought I would also share the promo video that my publisher put together for the book which I whined about profusely not so long ago. In all not so bad, please be gentle. I was so nervous and postpartum and not horribly excited about the ordeal. And I think I said the word BABY about 74 times in the last 30 seconds of the video. Or maybe they edited that in to make sure everyone knows that the book is all about BABIES. The best part of all of it for me is seeing all my little munchkins and the gorgeous photography that is part of this book. Lots to look forward to in 2010.
Have a wonderful evening! with love and thanks as always! xo, Anna
