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.







Dolly Book Tour

It is such an honor to be included with Elea Lutz ***DOLLY BOOK TOUR*** I have worked with Elea for many years and she always continues to inspire me with her fresh approach to color and design. She is super talented and tops it off with her sweetness that endears her to everyone. Elea's new book called Dolly has beautiful photography that keeps you looking through the pages over and over again.
After looking at all the lovely dolly themed projects I finally decided to make this cute Doll Dress Wall Hanging.

I used Little Dolly from Elea's recent fabric range. The colors and little mini designs are perfect for all the projects in her new book called DOLLY.

 One block just wasn't enough...ha ha  I started thinking about the cute grand baby daughter  that will be coming in December.

I thought...how cute would it be to do 4 Doll Dresses...

and so I kept sewing and sewing...

and sewing...I loved every minute of  picking out each dress fabric...

I was able to fussy cut the little flowers fr…

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.
