Fabric Win; Stitched Felt Bee...
At the beginning of the year I signed up with Michelle of Raspberry Rabbits for her Fellowship of the Flowers. I shared a few of my flowers I stitched and then set them aside. Life gets in the way sometimes. I really liked working on them and I will get back to doing some more later this year. I already have some gift plans. Meanwhile I was able to stitch one of her adorable little bees. I searched too many fabric stores and gave up on finding the tiny pindot fabric Michelle uses so instead I used fabric that was in my stash. I kind of like my wild bee look. When we use what we have it gives us greater freedom to be creative. Thank you Michelle.
Last week I was notified by Carol of Just Let Me Quilt blog that I had won her giveaway of a $20 shopping trip to Quilt Taffy. What?!! Fabric...for me? Thank you sew very much Carol. Carol is very creative and shares wonderful amazing projects she is always making. Please visit her and you will see for yourself.
I went online to Quilt Taffy's etsy store and spent that gift certificate post haste. Wait until you visit them and see how fun it is to find unique and beautiful fabrics while at home and in your comfy clothes. Corrie was a true sweetie and helped me through the online process. I honestly had my goodies the next day. Now that is service! I love the feel of the fabrics. They also have a Quilt Taffy blog and lots of generous giveaways. You are gonna love Carol and Corrie. Thank you both sew very much.
Our weather has been warm and I think we are into Summer. For all of you with too much rain...please send it to us. I know I keep saying it but we are still in our "Exceptional Drought". Fire season will be intense this year and I live in the forest. I do hope Spring is finding its way to those of you who are still experiencing snow. Many years we have gotten snow right on through Mother's Day.
I spent a wonderful day down the hill late celebrating my sister's birthday today. She and I have such great fun and time just seems to evaporate when we are together. I admit a few crafty things found their way into my trunk. Some fabric...some beads...some rhinestones...some buttons...Just a few of my favorite things! Next is to get busy and Be Creative!!! Joy and Creative Bliss My Friends...
