Sharing my Daze for the wonderful Journal and other great crafty things, I have been needing a journal for a while, Gini from A Little Bit of Shiny for The Garden Party Tottie, She is great and makes her home in my sewing room! Candace from Bow n' Hair-o Designs for the Beautiful pink flower clip/headband, my daughter just loves it, Nancy from The Strawberry Mallard for the bath mat, just what I needed! Heidi from The Kundin Family for the coffee cozy, it has come in really handy for little hands, Amanda from My Thirty-One for the Black Messy Circle Organizing Shoulder Bag, I just love it and have had many compliments about it. :0) And last but not least a digital stuffie pattern, for Oliver the Bunny! (not shown) from Naomi from The Belle Modiste I have not made Oliver yet but when I do I will post a picture on my blog. :0)
Thank you so much ladies for all the wonderful gifts.

For the love of music!
I made this square to represent my love for music and singing. I have gone on many tours singing with the POA adult choir, POA youth choir, Louisiana All State Choir, a presidential inauguration, and have sang on my own various places. I also spent a little time in the studio.

Here is a cloche hat because I really like them!
I used brown DMC pearl cotton to outline the hat, fuchsia silk ribbon for the center, and made a little green flower out of silk to finish it off. This is like the first hat I bought myself in the early 90's.

Spring Mini Quilt from Poppyprint
Isn't this the most beautiful little mini spring quilt! It is from Krista over at Poppyprint. I had to laugh when I saw it because I was making her one too and it turned out we had the same idea. Great minds think alike I would say! LOL! Thank you so much Krista I love it and the great Amy Butler FQ, love her fabrics. The spring mini is hanging on the wall next to my sewing machine.

Friday I woke up to my husband saying he was in pain, he had been awake since 5:00 in the morning. Turns out he had appendicitis and ended up having surgery that evening. He did not have surgery at our local hospital but at one an hour away. While there I decided to check out a quilt store Sugar Shack Quilting Co. Ltd. I had heard so much about but have never been able to go to. I ended up coming home with some goodies. :0) I got more DMC Pearl Cotton Size 5 and some great ribbon. Aren't the colors just Fab! As I was checking out I noticed this wonderful cross-stitch pattern by Mirabilia called La Nouveau Sampler. I have no idea when I will start this, but when I do you will be the first to know. I have never done anything like this before but as always I never start anything new the easy way. I just jump in with both feet and hope it turns out perfect! LOL!
My little nest of goodies!

P.S. My husband is doing fine! :0) Got carried away with my goodies. LOL!
