Hi all!

Inspired by a "pin" on Pinterest, Lily whipped out her version of PIXELATED HEART for my Mother's Day gift.  

Here I am with it, SEW HAPPY!  She used all scraps, from various projects, some that we've done together.  I thank my lucky stars that I am a "mom" and that my "definer" is Sew Sweet! :)

Last weekend, Mother's Day, this weekend, Graduation, and the next weekend, Memorial Day.  Whew!  May IS busy!

 Meanwhile, I have a couple of graduation gifts to "whip up" yet.  I think I have a good idea, but I'll fill you in on that next week, after I give them away!

I've really been giving the creativity neurons in my brain a workout!  (I'd like to think that my brain is as pretty as this fabric, lots of straight lines, and pretty, orange "idea bursts".  Is this what they call "positive thinking"?!)  LOL

So many projects and SPECIAL EVENTS to get ready for this summer!


Let's get the party started with CELEBRATION the newest STONEHENGE group from Northcott!




Just in time for a JUNE START on Wednesday June 4th, I've devised a, 
pick up in the store,


Each kit will have strips of different colored fabric, including a white background, plus instructions.

This year, it will be $3/kit, the month of issue, and $5/kit after the month.   If you want to make a 70" x 90" quilt, you will need to buy 2 kits each month in 8 of the 12 months.

Thangles are optional, but available.  Later on, there will be a finishing kit for approx. $20, to finish the top of a TWIN size quilt.  Backing will be additional.

Yes, for at least the first few months, you won't know what you're doing.  LOL  If that sounds like fun (or just like the rest of your life), this is for you! :)

Each month you'll buy fabric and receive instructions of something to sew, but at first, you won't know what you're making. 

Here are some colors that will be involved:

Big quilts are great, but how about little quilts?  It is fun to finish a small project and get that satisfactory feeling of "Ta DAAAA"! :)
