My friend that I grew up with in Australia has been here visiting for the last 2 months. When ever she comes to my home for dinner or a visit she brings me flowers. I've had fresh flowers in my home for the last 2 months. It's been wonderful.

Doesn't everyone love fresh flowers?

This is a fun idea to make for birthday gifts. My daughters friend had a birthday and we thought she would like this candy bouquet. We were right! Her mom said everyone was trying to take the candy but the birthday didn't want anyone ruining her bouquet.
Here are a few suggestions. I put that green sponge called oasis in the bottom of a colored plant pot. I then taped (I used packing tape) candy bars to skewers and placed them where I wanted them in the oasis. I cut tissue paper and taped it to the end of a skewer and placed those in between the candy bars to hide the sponge and the sticks. It was a fun project!

I thought I'd show a cabinet I've been working on. This was an old beat up cabinet that was purchased for about $25. I sanded down the whole cabinet. It took about 6 spray paint cans and a lot of patience to get this evenly painted .I took off the hardware and bought new hardware. Now it looks bran new!
So many projects and so little time. I wanted to share a quilt I made for my sister and her husband to give to a doctor as a thank you. To make a very long story short and share an incredible miracle that took place, my brother in laws hand was crushed while installing our transmission. Between having the right people at the right time and in the right place a hand is slowly healing.

This is a sneak peak of  a pattern that I am working on and will be released next week. It is called Sew, Cover Up! by butterfly Kisses pattern company. You can purchase it through Christensen Wholesale, Riley Blake Designs.

This is the million dollar quilt. Each block represents the story behind a letter from her son who served a 2 year mission. Don't you think that is such a great idea. I love it.






I love all the hand embroidery on this quilt. It will be a classic.








This was a block exchange quilt. She did a great job of her colors and arranging of blocks. I think this quilt turned out great.







Farm Girl Vintage "Woolly Sheep"

Woolly Sheep is the last block on the  Farm Girl Vintage Friday Blog Hop Sew-Along.

It has been sew much fun sewing along  with Lori Holt, Fat Quarter Shop and all of you every Friday. 


I have a pile of super cute Farm Girl Blocks that I can't wait to start piecing together to make a fabulous quilt. 


I wanted my sheep to be white so I used low volume fabrics...I'm going to add some embroidery around the edge of the sheep to help the outline pop.

My Woolly Sheep and I  took a little field trip to Birdseye, Utah.  My sister-in-law and her husband  live on a ranch... It was the perfect spot for some  Farm Girl Vintage photos.

 Don't you love this old farm truck!

The setting was a beautiful, peaceful, tranquil day.

We were able to take these photos with the perfect backdrop for Woolly Sheep.

There is so much to LOVE about this fun book that includes all upper and lower case letters. It also features complete instructions for 100 letters, numbers, punctuation and picture blocks in 6" and 12" block size, plus 18 quilt projects!

I have a fun project planned with the blocks I will be making.  Right now I have my binding by Vintage Door wrapped around my Binding Baby which is made by Shari for Doohikey Designs.

You can see how adorable my Binding Baby is and how she keeps my binding from unraveling while waiting to be used. 

My letter today is "lowercase o". It is super quick and easy. I have made several blocks as I am preparing to ma…
