Glitter & Grunge Update

Im Sad. No Im Ok really and actually its great because this month Ive been really procrastinating and had nothing ready for the glitter update....Here's the quilt I made for a possible design project for a book call out. But...It didnt get picked. Thats O.K., cause I love it & I can offer up for sale as of March 1st in my glitter & grunge shop! Its made with vintage red gingham & an old beautiful tablecloth i cut up and hand appliqued on in a running stick. All the top embroidery is done by hand, and the back is a soft grey pure virgin brushed wool. Definetly for the Modern Baby.

Isnt the tablecloth part great? Its all done in turquoise & red & grey. Oh well, moving on....
Here's the little note card set I made for the update too. In its own little box. There are 6 coordinating cards that stand up in the little box. I left the cards blank inside to make them more flexible. Thank you all for the lovely comments lately, Im enjoying so many more blogs now, and you all are a fantastic group of ladies out there! Time to get real-laundry to fold, dishes to do, toys to pick up, snow to shovel, homework & studying to be done, playdough to pick off the floor......

Have a great weekend you all- and Bean your package is on it's way!

We Have a Winner!

Happy Valentines Day Ya All!

Drumroll please.............. we have a winner & thanks to the random # generator( #1-#58) that fabulous person is Bean #10 From Coyote Craft Yippee! Please send me privatly your home addy & I will pop your towels and a random japanese craft book out to you soon & tell me if you like working more with fabric or felt. I cant believe the sweet comments you all have wrote. I have found so many amazing blogs to read now so thank you again!

I also want to tell you what I did yesterday-thanks to this great post I thought, why didnt i do that before?- its so simple & basic. Now I have 3 more useable sweaters that were just sitting there wasting away. I always have to buy sweaters in large or extra large to get the sleeve length & then the sides are gapping. I also hate waste so this made me so happy to do, because as you know when you shop at Costco there are no change rooms. (Not that i would use them anyways , I cant handle trying on clothes, too many looney children always running wild with me + I dont shop much for clothes)

I Actually had a buch of pics to show you but I

accidently erased them off the camera! OOps. You can imagine though. Now I have a useable warm olive sweater with hood, and brown, and a white one!

Did you check out those embroidered redwork Tea Towels?
My fabuloso super duper amazing Grama wipped those up for my etsy shop! They should be in the shop today! I love my grama, oh yes I do.........
and thank you all for participating, this was a really fun draw!

This is a little special secret project I have been working on , what do you think? And...No Im not pregnant. Its probably going to end up in the shop, we'll see.
I made the cupcake out of wool felt & appliqued it on with a blanket stitch, onto really soft polka dot & striped flannel.
So thats what has kept me a little busy over the last few days. Thanks for all the positive support. And for all you ladies who tagged me for things.....well, I have to admit Im a really bad girl.
