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!

"Our Little Cupcake" Baby Quilt
Wow, You guys are amazing! Thank you so much for entering the draw & such great comments, and letting me come by to visit your blogs! What a great pick me up! My bloglines are now officially exploding with all these new blogs to read! Im almost at 300, I think its a little ridiculous actually. I could never keep up with everyone but, I surely could never be bored. Its so fun & inspiring, so I will keep it open till Valentines & then I will draw the winner. 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. I cant even remeber what was who, or who tagged for what so I will get ya next time! -Luv ya though. Gotta go for now, be back soon with a winner!
You probably already know how much I love her meals. This might even be dessert
if I can get off the computer & get organized.
Have a great refreshing week!
