I don’t often enter blog competitions but recently watched a video on Kathy Schmitz’s blog of how she designs her fabric – It was just gorgeous watching the drawings become paintings which then become fabric. I couldn’t help but leave a comment and I won this sweet little 2 1/2” charm pack of her new range “Round Robin”. Kathy also sent me some adorable little gift cards featuring 2 of my favourite things – A Kitty Cat and quilts. Thanks so much Kathy !
It seems like ages since I have been treasure hunting so on my way home from work yesterday I decided to stop in at one of my favourite thrift stores and found this gorgeous work of art. Someone has spent many hours on this beauty. I was more than happy to pay the $1 to make it mine. I think I will paint the frame white and hang it in my bathroom which is currently undergoing a mini makeover.
Last night we took Miss Amy and 4 of her friends bowling and out for some dinner for her birthday. Whilst they were bowling hubby and I made a quick trip to the hardware store for some tile paint – That is another story for another day.
I passed these Sweet Williams on our way into the store and just couldn’t resist buying some for the pots at the front door. They always remind me of my grandma who adored them so now I have some planted and I will think of her every time I see them.
This gorgeous bundle of fabric arrived in the mail this week
Along with this pattern. I fell in love with it when I ordered it and now that I have it here I love it even more. Hubby and I wanted matching quilts for our recliners and I have been looking around for the perfect quilt so now I think I have found it. I have ordered a second kit so that we each have one.
I have cut it all out and have started the process of putting it all together
It is going to take awhile but I am hoping to have the first quilt top finished before the second kit arrives – I wonder how I’ll go?
This year of crafting and sewing is all about gift giving and items for my home. I have lots of projects in mind for different rooms of our house. Next up will be a sweet little bathroom mat from scraps.
