Southern Women's Conference

 Well here we are in Florida. I don't want to brag too much but it really is beautiful and warm here. The first person we met was Suede from Project Runway. He has been designing patterns for Simplicity. He takes one design and creates 3 patterns featuring edgy, classic and flirty. It was really fun to see the different ideas.
 I saw this jacket and thought the fabric print and idea were fabulous. We are releasing a new line for Riley Blake Designs that has a classified add. I have been seeing handbags and fun clothing with these kind of prints on. I think it is a great look.
  I loved this camper. I want one. I would call it the "glamper."
The other thing I liked today were these fabulous decorated cakes.
 Notice the girls pink tips on her blond hair in the back there. I thought it was kind of cool. I'm thinking of doing something different with mine.
 I have to say it was fun seeing Riley Blake Design buttons and crochet flowers being sold in this little venue.
 Again we saw Suede with a Princess someone. We watched a Simplicity fashion show and it was really great. There were a lot of very fashionable, modest outfits I thought my girls would really like to wear.

 You have to see the rest of these cakes. I had to take some close ups. I thought they were very creative and beautiful.

Cindy and I just finished teaching a demo and a make and take. I think we had a class of about 40 women. I designed a bracelet. It was embellished with buttons and yoyos. We taught them how to make the yoyos.While they were sewing the yoyos we did a trunk show with some of our quilts that we brought. We had a great time. We teach once more tomorrow. We will be teaching lanyards and my good friend Paula made about 70 of them. We will be showing how to make zipper flowers to embellish the lanyards. Enjoy your weekend. I hope to be here again tomorrow with another day at the Southern Women's Conference.


  1. Those cakes are amazing! Would love to see the lanyards and zipper flowers too=)

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.
