WIP Wednesday - the good stuff

The really, really good fabric skips being shelved with your stash and goes straight from the cutting table to the sewing machine. ASAP. ;o) 
It was the perfect fit for a design that has been begging to be brought to life for several months from my growing pile of sketches.  Woohoo!

Better late than never

 Maybe you will remember the paper piecing fun I had at the end of 2014, participating in Julianna's Last Minute Christmas Sampler QAL?  Julianna designed a wonderful collection of blocks for the Quilt Along and generously shared her patterns for free.  I finished a table runner using her Christmas Tree block, but only started making snowflake blocks by the end of 2014.

Fabric Bouquet

  Look at the pretty bundle of fabric happiness that has arrived to brighten up my week!

 It's my prize for being one of the two winners in the Vintage Rainbow mosaic contest held last month over at Stitched in Color (hosted by Rachel) and sponsored by Fabricworm!   Oh, my goodness and wow. The fabrics are even more beautiful in person.  Lots of fabric petting and longing glances being bestowed on these beauties and they have prompted a couple of design ideas already.  I can hardly wait to start stitching with them!

Kitchen stitching

This week I wrapped up another scrappy bit of sewing for my kitchen. It's one of those projects that once you finish, you ask why it took you so long to get around to it. ;o)

WIP Wednesday - Tiny Hearts

I'm entertaining all sorts of heart themed projects at the moment, including one fashioned from tiny hearts I've fused onto linen.  It seems that I want to MAKE all the fun ideas that pop into my head. ;o)

Sometimes I surprise myself when an idea works out so well...if you look close, you'll see that a few of the hearts within the heart have tiny hearts printed on them.  Can't wait to work some more on this idea and hope you're finding time for a little creative fun in your day!

Heart beats

Big surprise! I couldn't resist using up more of my 1.5" scraps to stitch some colourful  Candy Heart blocks.  I mean, the red ones were so yummy and you know how much I love bright colours.  Honestly, it was only a matter of time before this happened. hee hee  Can I tell you, I'm seriously entertaining the idea of making a heart rainbow? Just because. ;o)

Hope your week has kicked off with some creative fun!  I'm juggling all sorts of fun projects at the moment and the hope is to have at least one finish by the end of the week to share.  Which is why I'm kinda thinking the rainbow heart idea needs to go on the back burner.  For the moment. ;o)
