My fabric still has not arrived so I can start my squares for I'm Stitching-a-long. :0( I am loosing patients! :0) While I am waiting I have decided to gather some possible embellishments and trims that include vintage lace and ribbon, beads, vintage rhinestone buttons and silk ribbon. I will be using DMC and Anchor pearl cotton in size 5 and a red in size 3. I hope to have a square done for you to see early next week. Keeping my fingers crossed! Just maybe it will come on Monday!!!
Look what I got in the mail today! :0) I am so, so, so, thrilled with the quilt I got from Beth for DQS8. The fabric, the colors, little birds in the tree, everything is perfect! Not only did I get the best little quilt but she sent me a little bag and the fabrics she used in the quilt. I am sooooooooooo lucky. Thank you so much Beth, I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful package. You are awesome!
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!
Thought I would show you the doll quilt I sent out to.....? Can't tell you yet because my secret partner has not received it yet. I call this quilt the "Celebration Quilt" because it can be used for birthdays, anniversaries etc... I am half way done with the second one for my girls and am thinking of making more to put in my Etsy store. What do you think?
She go it and she loves it! Sheeeew I feel better. :0) This little quilt went to Trisha at TLC Stitches.
I love, color, design and textiles. I am a fool for beautiful fabrics and love to use my creative side to create beautiful things. Here I will post pictures that inspire me and do it yourself projects to create a beautfull space on a budget. Budget because we all have them right! Right? I believe if you create a little something you love here and there a little at a time, whether it be with an art/craft project a special find to changing the paint color in your room you will eventually have a room you love. We can all create a beautiful space on any budget. Please follow me on my never ending path in decorating. I love cooking too so will throw in a yummy recipe here and there. :)
