Yey, it’s here…

Today is my day in the UR Priceless Blog Hop!
Thanks to Mdm. Samm from Sew We Quilt
for creating this wonderful pattern
and to our cheerleader Katherine from Sew Me Something good

I get to share this fun hop day with these gals:
Day 4 – Nov. 8th
Cherry Blossoms… you are here °Ü°

I started with this little red, black, and white purse…
it took me a while to get it, he he! (okay, a few hours…)
 this is the front

 and this is the back
in the process, I learned to use a stronger thread, lol!
Purse #2… love this fabric
 and just had to use the little elephants for the back
and liner

 the thread issue was solved
and time… well, cut in half!
By the time I started working on #3,
I felt like a pro, ha ha!
For this one, I used a charm pack
and was lucky to find this medallion to fussy cut
So by #4, I definitely had it down!
I think I may give this one to a sweet friend
that loves poodles!
Just wish I had bought more purse frames…
guess it’s never too late to get a few more °Ü°
If you’d like to make one of these cuties, you can find the pattern here
and the darling little purse frames here

Hugs,


New Hop and a Winner!


Hello! It has been a while…


and after a very fun, successful trip to Houston,
I am so ready to get back to “normal”….
I heard someone say that “normal”
is just a setting in your dryer, he he! I agree!
… but I’ll still give it a try, LOL!

I want to thank everyone for visiting during the
Glorious Autumn Block Party hosted by Michele.
I really enjoyed reading all about what you love most about quilting!
For me, it’s the color, the fabric,
and the wonderful friends I’ve met thanks to quilting!
So…. the winner of my Autumn Bliss Pattern and charm pack is:
Rebecca Grace! She said… 

“You come up with the sweetest designs,

and this tree is no exception. Adorable! 

What do I like most about quilting?
I love that, unlike the hours I spend making meals that just get eaten,
washing laundry that just gets dirty again, etc.,
quilting gives me something lasting to show for my work.
And I like playing with fabric. :-)”

Love, love…°Ü°

Happy hopping,
                              




Another new project…

…couldn’t resist!!!
It’s a Christmas one….
and I just love anything Christmas,
so of course, I had to make it~ Ü
This time, I turned all the edges using my favorite method:
starch and freezer paper…
it gives you perfect edges
and now I’m stitching it down by machine
Here’s a close up of the edges
It will be embellished with buttons and beads once it’s quilted.

Tuesday, I took a class at one of my LQS 
and made this fun purse with Amy Butler fabrics I had in my stash!
Super easy and fast
Pattern is Juliet by Me and My Sister
I will  definitely make a few more…
I’d forgotten how much I enjoy making purses, lol!
