Fun Stuff!!

Business first...

******THERE IS STILL ONE OPENING LEFT IN THE PAY IT FORWARD*****

So what are you waiting for, go on I know you would like to try it. Sign up, I would love to have you join in on the fun!


Okay, I am now off of my soapbox. As many of you may have seen on the various blogs, I too have joined the FREE BOM stitchery by Lynette. It was my 1st time doing hand stitchery since I was a teen. Yes, I was crazy and hand embroidered everything in site. Mostly, I did my jeans!! I bet some of you also remember doing this too! It was a lot of fun and I can't wait until April for the next one. Here is my finished project.


I have not yet bordered it with fabric because I am waiting to see what the other blocks will be like. Take a look at her fabulous blog and download the pattern, it is called Noah's Ark.

I also received these little doo-dads in the mail from Jess.


She was doing some cleaning and wanted to get rid of them. I love them and was thinking that they might make a nice embellishment on a bag or purse. Do you have any other thoughts or uses for them?? Let me know I would love some input!

I finished the Mambo top, now to get it on my Gammill. I will post a picture of it next week.

Happy Weekend, Happy Quilting,

Jackie

Jess (www.tailscalifornia.blogspot.com/) is one generous person...she sent me TWO boxes of fabric recently.

Love the BOM embroidery.

Wish I could commit to the pay it forward but I just can't at this time. I can't wait to see what you make though.

Your stitchery block is cute! I've got that printed off and in my 'to do' pile. Next week when I'm sitting at dance recital dress rehersal I plan to work on it.

Hi Jackie,
I love your stitchery and especially love when it is included whithin a quilt.
Unfortunately, I don't know what to do with those lovely "doo-dads" but to stare at them. They are just stunning. Perhaps frame them in a shadow box. They would probably make a beautiful art piece. Sorry that I haven't been very much help. Have a nice weekend.
Aloha!

I am so looking forward to seeing your Mambo quilt top.. don't forget to show it before you send it off.
Those doo-dads would look great if you could attach them to a bag someway. Love them!
