It has been awhile

Sorry it has been so long since I have made a post. We have been either very busy or very exhausted lately.  Lots of things that are long past needing to be done and new stuff that has to be done immediately, so.....to say the least I haven't really got any sewing done and with the holidays fast approaching, who knows when I will get anything posted soon. I am giving it my best though.  Please bear with me and I hopefully will get back on track soon.

Side project

This is a side project to the other one that I have been posting about.  It is just a small part of the whole.  I still have some more work to do on it but what do you think so far?

I finished the tree!

So I finally managed to wrangle this silly tree into submission.  It has eluded me since day one.  The putting together of the tree was simple, but I just couldn't figure out how to stitch it down.  Well, inspiration came when I went to a art show in Chicago with my oldest sister and then it was just finding time to work on it.  Now all that is left to do is to put a back on it so that it can be hung on the wall.  What do you think? I just love the little bird!!  :-D

More new fabric!!

Well.  I have become such a sucker for fabric.  I have always loved fabric with its different prints and textures, but I have only recently (in the last two years) started being able to buy it to really make things like I have always dreamed.  I already have a stash of fabric that I've been slowly accruing, but they have been fairly basic fabrics.  Not really anything very pretty.  But recently I told you about winning some very lovely wordy fabric.  Yesterday I happened to stop at my local quilt shop and found some more wordy fabric.  I had to have it since it was all they had left.  It is newspaper print!!  I love it!!  I also found some others that I just couldn't resist.  See what you think of them!  Click on pictures for a larger view.

The Cutest Sign!!!

So, on our way home from Oklahoma today (just east of Joplin, MO.), I see this sign for a quilting shop that just gets me to laughing and I can't stop for several minutes so that I could tell my husband and son what I was laughing at.  I managed to tell them and they cracked up too.  I really wish I could've gotten a picture of the sign.  It says, "Block by Block Quilt Shop.  Scream until your husband stops the car."  Here is the link to their website.

I received my prize!!!

I finally received my prize of fabric in the mail.  OK.  To be honest, I received it several days ago but I'm just now able to post the pictures.  (I'm trying out my new phone that I didn't get until a few days after I got the fabric in the mail.)  It is very lovely fabric.  My husband's favorite is the one with the dictionary entries.  LOL.  He loves definitions and dictionaries.  :-)  Thanks again to Brenis for this wonderful giveaway.  So, without further ado, here are the pretties!!!  Click on pictures for a better look.

Oh....I can't forget

I need to send another thanks out to my very first follower Coinguyslady.  Thank you VERY much to my lovely sister who loves me soooooo much!  Thanks for your support!!!  You can check out her very lovely website over here at The Hogscald Holler.  She is soooooooooooo very talented.

Blessings to all,


I'm so excited I could just spit!!

So I just found out yesterday that I actually WON something.  This is second thing I have ever won in my life (that I can remember anyways) of 37 years.  It is just so exciting for me to win anything but this is something that is REALLY cool.  One of the blogs I recently started following had a drawing to win some beautiful wordy fabric.  I can't tell you how much I LOVE wordy fabrics and how badly I have been wanting to get my hands on some.  So that means I am even more excited than I would've been had it just been any old fabric.  (Not that I wouldn't have been excited by that too.)  I can't send thanks enough to Brenis over at That Thing I Do.... for having this drawing.  Thankyou,thankyou,thankyou!!!!  I already have plans in mind for it and I will post pictures after I receive it.

May you all be blessed!

My current project

Here is an updated picture of my project, although it is no longer current.  I can't seem to keep the posting current with the real work.  LOL.   I have been working on this for over a year now and I'm loving the way it is turning out.

Oh, and by the way, I have another blog.  I started it about a year ago but I'm going to be doing more with it now.  You can check it out here.

I'm finally joining the world of blogging!

Yes, it is true.  I have finally moved up in the world and have started my own blog.  I'm not real sure of how this will go, but I will give it my best shot.  It will mostly deal with my own creative works, but there is always the possibility of other peoples work (which will be noted) or just random bits of stuff that I like.  Forgive me if I don't update daily, I just don't know that I have that much to say.  Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you more often.
