Swiss Days 2010

Pavlova is a dessert that is a favorite when we visit my mum and dads home. It is always devoured. I was able to get a quick picture as it was being cut. It is made from egg whites, whipped cream, and fruit. Doesn't sound that great but because of the way it is baked it is delicious!

My Clancy has found a new love. Baking. She is great at desserts and pasta. I caught her making red velvet cupcakes which I will post the recipe for. They are the best! Her frosting is yummy!

Look how great these look!


We took a quick trip up to Swiss Days. I mean quick. We were there less than an hour. You could hardly move there were so many people.


There looked like some fabulous treasures but like I said there were too many people.

I have to say I don't do crowds very well.
I thought these metal statues were so ingenious. The workmanship was beautiful. I loved this cowboy and look at the ant. There are more in the background to the right. They are adorable!



Midway is a beautiful little city nestled in the mountains. Such a cute country town. This is a view to the south looking toward Deer Creek.



A view of Deer Creek.




The airplanes were doing a little show. They are so cute. I would love one.
A fun car that I couldn't resist taking a picture of.

This quilt is a free pattern that can be downloaded from the Riley Blake Designs website. I designed it with Amanda Herring of the Quilted Fish' fabric line called Delighted! It is a happy line with great reds, yellows, greens and blues. Keep finishing those projects.
Happy Sewing!

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…
