I am on the road again friends. I will be out all week. I thought I'd leave you with the image of the mini Cheerio quilt I finished piecing and almost have finished hand quilting. It is about the size of a placemat and it's for a swap I'm doing. The pattern is by Camille Roskelley and the fabric is Flower Sugar by Lecien. The background fabric I had in my stash and don't recall what that is. I'm quilting it with yellow pearle cotton. Have a blessed week! Be back soon!

I don't know how it could be possible, but I don't own a pink top! Pink is one of my favorite colors. I can get pretty picky about the shade of pink though so that could be my problem. I need a pink top for a breast cancer fundraiser this week so I sat down today to make one, because when you need one the stores don't have any. This pattern was very straight forward and came together in a couple of hours. I bought the knit material at Joann's and when all is said and done, it's not great fabric. It's thin and too see through so I'll have to wear a cami but for what I need it for, it's fine. The knit has sparkles all over that don't show in the picture. I would like to try the pattern again with a nice quality cotton knit.
I found the best cookbook at World Market. I love everything about it! I made the cheese crackers yesterday and they were great! I didn't want plain old squares like cheese nips so I used a little bumble bee cutter I had. As always, if your'e going to make the effort, make it pretty!

Good Morning friends! I have been away for far too long. I've been doing quite a bit of traveling the past three weeks and have missed being at my sewing machine and have missed being here. Right before the traveling began I came across a set of blocks that I had forgotten about. I made them sometime in the past couple of years. I don't have any memory of what the pattern was. I know that it was a sampler along, and some of the blocks were paper pieced. I used Lecien's Flower Sugar as well as Princess Rose and some Old, New 30's. All I had to do was put the sashing on and drop it at the quilters. I just got it back and I am in love. I know that it's quite floral and bright and a bit busy but I love it! I hope that you are having a good start to the week! Blessings!
