Working on a few things.  I have been downloading the BOM from Shabby Fabrics.  It is a mystery quilt.  The fun part is Kathy and Colleen (2 of my sisters) are creating the quilt as well.  I am so exceted to see how differently they all turn out.

EXCITING news.  At my Stray Threads quilt guild meeting last week I won a raffle.  We were all givien a piece of focus fabric and told to go home and create a 12" square.  You receive a raffle ticket for each 12" square you have created.  They raffle 9 blocks off at a time.  So I WON.  And so did Bette Kelly the love.  She gave me her blocks when she heard I was going to make a Camp Korey donation quilt with my winnings.  Now I have 18 blocks.  It is awesome.

At the guild meeting as well we have a challenge to create something with the theme "flowers".  We had 4-5 months to work on the projects.  The submissions were beautiful.  I have added  the embroidery work that I submitted.  It was fun to do.  The design from  I love her patterns. 

Now... CRAZY ME... joined a Bunco group.  not because I need to roll dice and visit.  But because these woman are really fun and create an memorable evening.  So I have the month of October to host my event.  I am grabbing a needle and thread and getting started.  This group has gift and prizes.  I would tell you my plan... but it is secret.

  1. Hello Mo! This is Fay, the designer of the embroidery pattern in this post. I'm always excited to see what crafters have done with my patterns. I love the colors you chose for your piece. It feels like spring. If you would go to my blog and send me a note through the Kontactr button, I'd like to ask you some questions. Hope to hear from you soon!
