Wow, January 18th already?!! I have to admit I'm not having any problems writing 2013....I kinda like how it looks and I've finished and started so many things....it's going to be a banner year!:)
3 yards of fabric I made last year...once in a while I'll have the photo as my blog banner...now I have cut into those pieces....any guesses as to what I'm making? Ha! Maybe I should give a goodie to the person that guesses correctly...or closest!:) What do you think?
January Bitty Block Bee Queen is Sil from Brazil...love how that sounds!:) Her theme is doors/windows and she wanted one of each size so I made a window looking out to a garden and "Sil's Sewing Shop" complete with sewing machine button sign and button flowers.....she loves them!:) Sil is an amazing talent on the sewing machine so I'm always touched with how much she loves and appreciates all her "soft" mail!:)
At work we sell precut packages of "Colorstory" and "Brick" batiks. Carly gave me several packages of "Colorstory" and said have fun....make a sample of what you can do with them....so I did!;) I didn't have my camera so this was taken with my phone...you can't see the hand quilting in the cream colored areas. Every
piece is a different pattern!:)Bitty Block Committee had a "calendar" theme. I took them out, framed each up with a little grey, added a loop at the top and made a perpetual calendar. Next month the lovely heart with replace the wee little penguin and so on. The little block hanging in the upper left corner is my spacesaver...it goes wherever there is an empty space!:) The adorable owl pin in the center was made for me by my pal Karen's hubby...Mr. Bill!:) If you look here I labeled each bitty so I'll always remember who made it!:) Thanks ladies!!
Love those sections of fencing pickets....might need to sneak them away from my parents...but in the meantime they are perfect for showing the crazy ninepatch fun of Frolic. Isn't that birdcage fabric adorable...that came from Urban Outfitters! The boy likes this quilt....so he shall have it....
