new things....

I have been running a giveaway over on my NPNT blog for a new product I am working on. Lots of things being planned and worked on at once here for 2008, I think I actually need to write a plan and a to do list each day as I seem to be dabbling in too many at once... Anyway, as I said at the top I have been running a little giveaway....


mmm. what is this you ask? well its a new box, actually about 50 of them, they are the cutest little noodle boxes and I have them in four delicious colours so far... They are going to contain a selection of designs from the Nice People Nice Things kits - just one in each with the preprint, pattern and a needle, all you need when you go away on holidays without a project and are having stitchers withdrawal.... my problem is, I dont know what to call them. Now I have had Huggettes, Tempters, Little Love Notes etcetc..... So the competition is, to name them - you can see some suggestions on the NPNT blog but I am not completely sold on one yet....(but blog friends who gave suggestions, you are still in the running to win so dont panic!)

Want to see some more peeks on new projects? Look at these gorgeous threads which arrived today to go with these to die for fabrics I have been drooling over for a few weeks now waiting for thread..... the designs are done, I now need to get to stitching...


I also have a very exciting blog project in planning stages with some wonderful talented designers from across the globe, it will be a little while before we get going as you can see I have my brain going in many directions just now, but it will be worth waiting for...

now what else, I think thats enough for me and you to handle for today.... please keep me in your thoughts as I take on far too much and stretch myself far too far because I love it and just cannot resist!

oh, the giveaway - I will send out two noodle box kits - yet to be named to two lucky commenters - not necessarily the final namer but you do need to give me a suggestion...

hugs for today

Helen

What about calling the nudle boxes "Sweet dreams", "Quilters dreams", "Lovely kisses" or "Kisses from me"

I am making a toiletry bag with one of your designs on it as we speak.

Hey helen,
I dont think anyone has suggested "S'Noodles" or "snoodles" (S for sewing and noodles for the noodle box) I think that sounds very cute!! or how about:
"Snoodles To Go"
"Hugs 'n' Snoodles"
"Traveling Snoodles"
"Box of Snoodles"
Or how about:
"Cuddles"
Thants all I can think about at the moment.
Good luck with picking a winner.

Linda said...

Doodles to Go

Leeanne said...

Sew-me-Now's

Bronwyn said...

Hi Helen,
What a great idea for sewing on the go. I did like Jointas suggestion...Takeaway Hugs, sounds so cute.
Heres mine...Soul food.
Because stitching really does feed the soul. Good luck with finding an answer to the new name.
