I Want to Stay in A Castle

This post contains sponsored content, but all opinions are my own.  

Traveling to Europe has been high on the list of things my husband and I want to do.  We discussed going there for our honeymoon in 2010, but it didn’t work out.  You can see about our honeymoon here.  Maybe for our 10 year anniversary.

With Europe’s size we have narrowed down our spots to two locations:

  • Great Britain, Scotland, and Ireland
  • Germany or Austria

As we started researching and planning, I decided I really wanted to stay at least one night in a castle.  There are many to choose from.


Lucky for me and you, HomeAway is giving away a stay at Dun’s Castle in Scotland to celebrate the release of Beauty & The Beast in theaters March 17th.

I call dibs on this room.

Take a video tour below.


The giveaway is for you and 20 guests.  If you win, you’ll take me right?  Just kidding.  If you don’t win the grand prize, runners up are eligible for a week vacation at any HomeAway location.

Take a minute and sign up below.

Paper Obsessed Bundle

Heather has offered up a generous Paper Obsessed bundle as well.  It’s bigger than the scrap packs, but kind of similar.  This will be a prize for a finished quilt top.  I know not everyone will get a full quilt finished and done by December 15th, but I want you to make the quilt.  So there will be a prize for finishing a top and uploading it by December 15th as well.

Grand Prize from Stitch Stash Diva

Tavya was very generous with her sponsorship.  She’s offering a $100 gift certificate to her shop.  This will be grand prize for a finished quilt by December 15th.  Imagine all the lovely fabric you can stock up on with $100.

Charming Plus Quilt-A-Long

Do you suffer from a scrap problem?  Have a fat quarter bundle or other precut you’re not sure what you want to make with it?  Are you freaking out that Christmas isn’t too far away and you haven’t started sewing?

First breathe.  Second, grab some coffee, I may have a solution for you.

In March I published the Charming Plus Quilt Tutorial over at Sew Mama Sew (click for link).

There was great feedback and a few questions.  One question about why I didn’t make the center squares a rectangle instead of three squares.  Main reason, this was designed as a scrappy quilt originally.  I wanted to give people options to use up their squares.
