Here are some more shots of the completed project:
The fabric for the backing...next in line for more ironing!
Practice for the final touch!
In case I haven't mentioned it to EVERYONE....I LOVE my new sewing machine!!!!!!!!!
The I-Top, I can't wait to make some buttons to add to one of the Christmas quilts I am working on...yes I know....I said Christmas. What can I say? The holiday season got busy!
Yes! That's an Accuquilt Go Fabric Cutter! I actually purchased it on Ebay, for a pretty fair price! I plan on checking out Joann's Fabric for Dies today when I go to pick up some button forms!
The kids loved watching the crayon melt in the wax paper!
I'm not the only craft one in the room! My teaching assistant and dear friend never ceases to amaze me. Yesterday for my birthday she made these AMAZING cupcakes. She knows I LOVE dragonflies!
A few weeks ago when I thought my poor fig wasn't going to make it, I bought another and while browsing on Amazon, I came across this little olive tree. I thought it would be perfect to join my collection. I'm already planning what else is going to join these darlings in my little garden!
I love the blues in this collection...they remind me of a robin's egg! So excited to pull this one together. I actually have a bunch of Bliss charm packs that I may use to make this pattern again, but double in size for a bed spread. I guess I'll be teaching myself how to make pillow shams soon.
I made enough of these wonky little lopsided scrappy hearts to hang from my dining room chandelier. It looks adorable shabby chic!
Hmmmmm.....what other projects can I work on in this crazy wintry weather?!
