Las Vegas

My mum loves Las Vegas. She wanted to drive her new convertible to Vegas and have a Grace Kelly experience. So My sister and daughter and I brought our hats and headed to Vegas.

As you can imagine it was quite the funny experience trying to enjoy being in 106 degree weather with the top down and fumes and diesel coming from all directions from the other cars. Needless to say we only lasted about 45 minutes.

 I wanted to share some of the things I love about Vegas that inspire me to design and create. Above those are rows and rows of beaded sequins drooping like lights and curtains coming from all directions. Beautiful!
 Mosaics that create shapes and colors.



 Lights in trees.

 Fancy Shaped lamp shades in beautiful color combinations. Look at those shapes.
 You know diamonds are a girls best friend. Look at those yellow diamonds.
 The following pictures are from Le Reve. An incredible Circus O' Le show.
 These were incredible flowers that dropped from the ceiling. It was a spectacular show.












 Of course you can't go to Vegas without seeing sporty cars.



 Fancy limousines for the rich and famous.


 This ceiling is incredible. The detail with no expense spared.



 This was the view from our hotel. Beautiful.

 Of course lunch at the Cheesecake Factory was a highlight. It was national cheesecake day so all cheesecakes were half price. We had to try several. They were yummy. You can probably look at this picture and gain weight.

 Gorgeous pink chandeliers out of glass.

 This was a fun store that used old sewing machines as their decor. It was fabulous. I had to take pictures and share how fun those old machines are and what a unique idea for decorating a clothing store.






Well on with the day. Happy sewing to everyone. Thanks for stopping by to see the things that inspire me and make me happy.

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…

Spelling Bee Sew Along

I'm so excited to be part of the Spelling Bee Book Sew Along byLori HoltofBee in my Bonnet for Fat Quarter Shop. 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 used "Yes Please" fabric line by  My Mind's Eye for Riley Blake Designs. The color palette is black and off white with a touch  of rose gold. The simplicity of the colors lends itself to sophistication.

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…
