Quilt giving card idea

I think this is a darling message to add to your card when sending your quilts as a gift to someone special. I found this saying at The Quilt Rack and thought I would share this with you.

Baby Blue Flowers and Cream Quilt

Last month my sister mailed me a huge box of material she bought 10 years ago that she wanted to make a quilt with but never had the chance. I finished the baby quilt and the final result is showcased here. So for her second quilt she wanted a lap size quilt. These pretty fabric were all ready cut up into squares and I chose do a nine patch quilt as well. Just like I done with her other one. But this was just rearranged different.

Now all it needs is to bind the edges. Just need to pick the perfect fabric to go with this cute quilt and it will be already to snuggle in for winter.

Hope you like this one sis!

Bumble Bee's for Halloween

I had bought this Bumble bee top for my daughter for Halloween this year and my husband thought that it would be cool if our whole family were bumble bees. So I went to the fabric store and bought lots of yellow and black felt fabric. I cut them in strips and sewed and sewed and sewed them together to make this....

It was quite simple. after sewing the strips together I folded and sewed the piece together and put elastic for the arms and neck and voila.

We are now Bumble Bees. I was afraid it being to small so I made it extra big and just tucked in the bottom of the top to my skirt. Only took me one night to make.

Pay It Forward - Thank You!!!

Back in August I came across this pay-it-forward theme at Tragically Ordinary. I just fell in love with this idea so I decided to join in. I am so glad I did! I have been very busy with life here at home and with our family business and I just needed a break from blogging and needed to turn off my sewing machine for a little while until I get things back in order. So was not happy about that.

Well, last week I received a wonderful surprise in the mail from Stephanie from Tragically Ordinary. This was just what I needed!!! Seriously! What a wonderful surprise this was. And very thoughtful as well! I couldn't wait to snap some pictures to share with you of what I received!

A wonderful handmade scarf

A beautiful sign that spells out "create". I know exactly where I am hanging this. In my sewing space of course!

and also some tasty goodies! YUM!

Just when I was about to take a picture, my daughter quickly sneaked her hands in the bag to grab some cookies. She just couldn't resist.

She loved them! whole family did!

Thanks Stephanie! I loved it!!! This totally made my day!

And for those girls who made comments on my pay it forward post will be getting their surprise soon!
