I’m back…

Hello there, I’ve been gone for a long time
and have been missing ya’ll so much!
2014 was an incredible, but crazy, busy year for me…
So many awesome things happened
and I want to share some of the fun things
I worked on over the next few days…
It all started with Celebrate the Seasons with C&T
The book includes patterns for Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter,
all with full size layouts & reversed templates!
I had a great time working on each of these projects,
and if I had to pick a favorite, it would have to be
Thankful… or maybe Merry & Bright?…
Humm, I don’t know…
the little chicks in Happy Easter turned out so sweet, plus …
well, then there’s the map, love maps and travel! … lol…
Okay, how can a mom have a favorite child, right?
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hugs,

It’s a party!!!

“Fat Free” Smoothie and two of my patterns?

And today I’m so happy to be part of the
Red White & Blue Blog Hop
hosted by Jane over at Jane’s Fabrics

Jane, thanks for hosting this fabulous Hop!
and thank you Madame Samm for the awesome cheers
at Sew We Quilt!
This color combination was a bit of a challenge for me…
I loved working with the reds and whites,
but the dark blues,
well, they were a bit harder!!!
…. and guess what, I really had a great time!
I actually came up with seven blocks,
but ran out of time…
…so here’s we go…
This is the first block I made – the background is paper pieced
and the eagle is a raw-edge applique
Next, I paper pieced this little airplane
and just had to add the little flag button
to the wing  *Ü*
While playing with ideas,
all I could think about was pinwheels,
so this was my first attempt…
 …then I got a little more creative
and decided my pinwheels needed to be 3-D
Only challenge here was hand stitching the fireworks with metallic thread,
but I think it was worth the trouble. 
This one turned out to be my favorite of all!
Would you like to make the little wagon with the pinwheels block?
I made the pattern and a little fabric kit to give to one of you…
all you have to do is leave me a comment
telling me what your favorite dessert is!
Enter by Sunday, July 15
I’ll announce a winner on the 16
