Flutter Butterfly Pin Cushion

Just finished this pin cushion for the scrappy pincushion swap. Hope you like it partner. I used Heather Bailey fabric and a vintage jewel button for the center of the flower and red upholstery fabric for the square center. Since my husband and I are in the upholstery business I get lots of small scrap upholstery fabrics that I like to incorporate in my creations that would otherwise be thrown away. Just trying to be a little Green! :0)

Square 8 Stitch-A-Long

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.

Square 6 Stitch-A-Long

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.

Fridays Events

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!

La Nouveau Sampler by Mirabilia

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

Lovely Antique Lace

I used an off white antique lace and trimmed it out with brown pearl cotton. It stands out much better against the background then it looks in the picture. I really like antique lace.

Square Two Stitch-A-Long

My Little Rose Garden

As a child I was always surrounded with beautiful flowers from my grandma Lopez's flower garden.  I loved smelling the roses.  I had to smell every one. Beautiful memories playing in her yard.

I'm Stitching Along

I just found out about this wonderful little stitch along at 39 Squares a couple of days ago. I quickly ordered some osnaburg fabric and am patiently waiting for it to arrive so I can start.  By the time it gets here I will be 14 days behind I am sure. Will have a lot of catching up to do. Can't wait! As if I don't have enough on my plate with 2 jobs, a family a big house to clean and other sewing projects to finish. LOL!  I can't help myself. LOL!

What I am giving away!

One beautiful tooth fairy pillow. Keep your child's tooth safe while it awaits the tooth fairy's visit. Don't have any children loosing teeth then it can be used to put a keepsake in or used as a decor pillow that hangs from a door knob or bed post.

Mini Quilt

I made this quilt for a log cabin mini quilt swap. My swap partner had to provide the center of the log cabin squares and I had to provide the rest.
