A Great Sale Going On!!

One of our blogging friends had a scare with her sweet dog Charlie. Vet bills can be large so Bev is having a great sale in her etsy shop.  All fabric (except fat quarters) are 50% Off!  Yep, you read that right!  Patterns are 30% off.
Her site shows the original price, just click "ask a question" and tell her what you need. She will send the invoice.
Of course I bought some!  I love her choice of fabrics.

Head over to

44th Street Fabrics


God all of you who are deep in the snow and cold.  Stay safe.

Little Letters and a New Project!

I know a new project, but in my defense I am caught up on my little letters!
See!

♪ ♪ ♫  Q,R,S,T  ♪ ♪





  ♫ ♫ ♪ Alphabetically speaking you're okay ♪ ♫ 




So while I was on Pinterest I saw this...



I could not find the pattern so I am just winging it!  


I cannot draw but I was happy with these little guys.


Plus some fall fabrics from my friend as I do not have these colors in my stash.


Yep, I traced and then stitched the little guys on the wrong side of the fabric. 
Oh well!
I still need to spritz the embroidery to remove the blue lines.
I am now making hexies.  


I might get it done for Thanksgiving, unless a new project catches my eye!

Happy Sewing!

It Is A Flimsy And I Am Thrilled

My Farmer's Wife Blocks are now a flimsy. I took your advice and moved a few blocks around to hopefully make it look appealing.
I had a very hard time deciding on the color of cornerstones, so I went with nulti-colored and I am so happy with that decision. I then framed the whole quilt in Kona White and added a border of a Pam Kitty Pink Fabric.
I am going to quilt it with a soft pink in a grid pattern.

I NEVER could have done this quilt without the classes I took from Karen at Laugh Yourself Into Stitches.They were amazing and she was so helpful. The link to her classes is on my side-bar and she now has a super fun Facebook group!

Well, the worst part for me lies ahead!  Basting and marking the top.  I just want to quilt!

Here she is as a flimsy.
The next time you see her, pictures will be taken in the snow as I hand quilt.


Corner-stones
Not too bad for a semi-blind gal!


I was trying to capture the color of the border because it is such a pretty pink.


So, off to watch a scary movie as I baste. Ick!!

Happy Sewing and Thank You for your visit.

What a Fun Week!

I have been MIA for the last week as my baby girl had her fall break for college.  No sewing happened.
We went shopping, went out to eat, she played with her nieces and nephews and we watched the second season of "Mindy". Hubby took her back yesterday and I was very sad, but she will be home for Thanksgiving in no time.

So yesterday, I started to sew!! 
My friend Elaine and I want to make the Sew Together Bag, pattern by SewDemented. The pattern can be found on Craftsy.

There is also a great quilt along tutorial from Quilt Barn, found HERE.

I decided to piece the front and back, so I put together 2 1/2 inch squares.  I had directional prints so I hope they work when I cut the pattern. I still want to quilt this piece. 
Here it is so far.


I was thinking of using some of these fabrics for the pockets and lining.


This will be an ongoing project. 
 I do not think I can do it in a day!

I received a fun squishy in the mail. I won a giveaway over at

Donn's Lavender Nest.

If you have not been to her blog, please do yourself a favor and visit HERE.

She has beautiful fabrics in her shop and a sale going on right now too!

Look what I won!

A fat quarter bundle from Lori Holt's line Flower Patch and a  box of matching Aurifill threads called Happy Colors. Look at those colors. Yep this was one happy mail day!  Donna has a special way of sending packages. The items are first placed in a plastic bag, then wrapped in purple tissue with a purple bow, and then purple hearts are sprinkled inside the waterproof envelope. 
 How sweet is this...

Thank you Donna!



Thanks for stopping by and Happy Sewing!
