the big winner, rosette earrings, technical difficulties and a special field trip

sadly my computer is officially out of commission. it really sucks because I have no extra funds right now to purchase a new one. i'm so sad about my computer and it doubley sucks because I'm posting this from my iPod touch so I have no way to post new pictures or link to anything. boohoo.

as promised the big winner of last weeks button contest is... Sarah, with the guesstimate of 497!!! the jar held a whopping 566 buttons and Brittany happened to be closest with the guess of 600, but submitted an answer after deadline. oops! so, congrats sarah!!!! I
please swing by anomaly anytime to claim your prize!

this week for craftacular Tuesdays we are mixing things up a bit! the craft of the night is short but sweet. we are making painted rosette earrings. then while our project is drying, we are going to take a short 10 minute walk to the cummer museum (its FREE on tuesday nights!) to check out an exhibit that any good crafter won't want to miss... the gee's bend quilt exhibit. these quilts are all handsewn by women of gee's bend, Alabama, dating back to slave times. they were pieced together with scraps and recycled fabrics and ijust can't wait to see them on display!

hope you can make it tomorrow night and stay tuned for a summer sewing spectacular announcement... our 4 week sewing series starts next tuesday night!!!
