Hi everyone! Sorry I have been a bit slow to blog lately. I went out of town to visit my sister for a week, and then had a week long family reunion this week(still in progress!) 🙂 We are having so much fun hanging out together. I have been sewing a bit. I finished and mailed my bug doll for the blinking flights bug doll swap. They are so cute. I finished two of my T-Shirt quilt orders (only one more to go!) I started a circles quilt out of the Riley Blake fabric…it is going to be so dang cute! I caught up my Kansas City Star blocks, Hillary cut and pinned all my applique blocks so I HAD to finish them! She is so sweet! 🙂 I decided to try out free motion raw edge applique on my Bunny Hill bom blocks. I love them so much!
I won a gorgeous quilt from Penny at sewtakeahike. It is beautiful and I love it! Thank you Penny!
I would show pictures of all of these things but I dropped my camera in the river while visiting Hillary and my pics are bright white flashes…so I am trying to figure out the camera problem and then I am sure you will be swamped with photos!
And finally the real reason I wanted to post today! The Quilters Daily Deal today is a Wonderland by Momo layer cake for 15.95! It is such a great deal! 55% off! Go check it out and grab one for yourself!
Have a fantastic day!
My momma had a birthday last week! Happy Birthday Mom! I decided to make her this cool weighted pin cushion that I found on Oh Frannson‘s blog. As usual, her directions were fabulous. Well written and easy to understand. I love her patterns! I used my precious Anna Maria Horner Fabric. My mom, I am happy to say, LOVES her pincushion too! She now has a place for her glasses and seam ripper as well.
And I am just the luckiest girl around! 🙂 My sister Hillary of Hillary Ann…Designing Happy makes these gorgeous cupcake pincushions! She sent me one in the mail for my birthday! I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!! 🙂 Its just so adorable! Thanks again Hill, and yes my pins are very happy living in a chocolate cupcake! I grabbed this photo from Hillary because it shows just how cute they are! and I could not take a decent pic of mine! They really are that cute!
So, my lovely little sister gave me this adorable little elephant for my birthday!
Isn’t she so cute?? Irresistible, if you ask me! So, the funny thing was when my girls brought me all the other elephants in our house to introduce our new little friend to her family! I had no idea I had so many elephants! It was clear I have a “thing” for them.
So, I thought I would share a few of my favorite elephant fabrics that have been hanging out in my pictures folder and my etsy favorites! Enjoy!
