If only I could turn back time...

May 27, 2009

I came across Sew Mama Sew's posting a couple weeks back regarding the 'Giveaway Day', however I questioned my credentials to participate, and am now quite sad! Use the links above to check out their blog and listing of blogs and shops giving away freebies from all around the world! The giveaway opened today and will close on Sunday when the winners are announced. One should note that every blogger/shop owner is conducting their giveaway differently, so read carefully. Should anyone win something, please let me know, as I would love to celebrate with you!

I'll post about the next 'Giveaway Day' hosted by Sew Mama Sew, as my name will definitely be on the list! :)

Care for a Cupcake?

May 25, 2009

I made a cupcake for my sister's birthday (see photo above); however not an edible cupcake, as I made her a cupcake pincushion!

I'll be the first to admit that the pattern was not EASY!
Although the cupcakes do make my sewing time that much more sweet! :)

Mystery Quilt Update

May 20, 2009

I had some free time last night to sew together the 'Mystery Quilt' top for Sew Blessed Quilters (SBQ). Now all it needs are a couple borders, binding, and lots of prayers! Enjoy!


May 12, 2009

It is with great pleasure that I present the finished version of the 'Puppies Galore' quilt!

With this post I also must announce that I'm taking a crafting hiatus (with the exception of my Sew Blessed Quilters projects), as I've procrastinated long enough, and must take up studying for my architecture licensing exams as a hobby (ick!) until the end of June. I'll pop in to check on everyone for time to time, but until then I'm off to study!

Snips and Snails, and Puppy-Dogs' Tails

May 10, 2009

I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day! I spent the afternoon with my mom at M&L Fabrics (which was such a treat...such a wonderful selection of decently priced fabric!). While I was there I picked up the fabrics below, as I plan to make another quilt for a dear friend's little boy, using the same pattern as I did for the Puppies Galore and the Quilting 101 quilts, the Tumbling Squares Baby Quilt by Jennifer Arey of Baby's Breath Quilts.

A= Green (top left square)
B= Brown (top left rectangle)
C= Yellow Stripe (middle left rectangle)
D= Birds (top right square)
E= Snails (bottom rectangle)

Stay tuned for a finished picture of the Puppies Galore quilt, as I'm hoping to be able to find the time to attach the binding early this week. So close to the finish line...

Magnet Mania

May 4, 2009

I must admit that my magnet addiction consumed me Friday night. After my plea in the last magnet post, I stumbled upon 1.25" flat glass marble magnets at JoAnn's- I was tickled pink! I purchased a couple new pieces of scrapbook paper and was on may way to making BIG magnets! In a night's time I made six sets, each set consisting of one large magnet and three 3/4" magnets.

I also felt the need to rearrange and update my refrigerator with my new magnets...
