happy flower quilts blog hop and book giveaway-closed

 Hello sweet friends!
Congratulations to lucky comment number 16, Mary Beth-crash-n-smash for winning the book giveaway! I'll send you an email! 
I am so excited to be apart of the Happy Flower Quilts Blog Hop today and share a couple of sweet projects that I made from the book!! The lovely and talented quilter and fabric designer, Atsuko Matsuyama, has always been such an inspiration to me and I love all her books, and happy that the sweet folks over at Zakka Workshop for reprinting this one in English!
 My first project I made was the Sweet Summertime Mini Quilt which was so fun to make. I really enjoyed the whole process of the appliqué, hand sewing, and quilting!
 I used a mix of fabrics from Lecien's Old New 30's collections, including the new one coming out in March, which is beautiful! And, some of my favorite Atsuko Matsuyama prints!
 The scallops were such a sweet ending touch to this quilt, and they were a first for me and definitely a new favorite!
This was an enjoyable project from the book and I look forward to making the Spring Strawberry Mini Quilt next!
 I also made this pretty Heart Tea Mat and it was such a quick and lovely project to hand sew and quilt! If you have never tried hand sewing and quilting, I would highly recommend it to you!! I truly love and enjoy the whole process!

 The lovely folks over at Zakka Workshop are generously giving away a free copy of the book to one of you sweet friends, open world wide! All you have to do is leave a comment below and I will chose a winner after the Blog Hop on March 2nd!
Thank you so much for visiting with me today! Hope that you will enjoy making the projects out of this sweet and inspiring book by Atsuko Matsuyama! Wishing you all a most lovely and creative day!

pixie noel blog tour

 Hello sweet friends!
It's my turn on the Pixie Noel Blog Tour and I'm excited to share this sweet patchwork pillow I made with the darling new line and embroidery pattern created by Tasha Noel for Riley Blake Designs.
 Tasha always has the sweetest embroideries to stitch up, and I enjoyed stitching this cutie up. I should have made the hand stitching green instead of aqua to stand out more, but it still looks sweet.
 I love all the darling prints and pretty colors in this line, and so perfect for a vintagey Christmas! 
Thank you so much for visiting with me today, and I hope you get to sew with Pixie Noel for your Christmas projects!

sweet tweets

 Hello lovelies!
My sweet and dear friend Erin of Why Not Sew? published a darling new book called Sweet Tweets that is a must have in your stash of crafty books! Its filled with such beautiful and sweet projects that you will love!
 I've always loved her sweet birdie quilts that she makes, and was excited to make this pretty "Birds and Bees" hot pad from her book as it combined my love for hexies and crocheted scallops!
I choose some pretty autumn florals and a peach cream crocheted edging! I love how Erin adds crocheted edgings to some of the projects, which is one of my favorite touches! Aren't those birds cute!
I really enjoyed making this sweet hot pad and look forward to making some more pretties from Erin's book! 
Congratulations to Kimberely for winning a sweet e-book!!

sweet deer and fawn pillow

 Hello and Happy September!
I hope that you are doing wonderfully and enjoying the last days of summer!
I wanted to share this sweet vintage deer and fawn pillow I recently finished! It seemed like it took me months to get it stitched, as I just worked on it in my down time from shoppe items. I decided on a sweet floral binding and it now has a lovely spot in my home!
I started to take out some fall items to decorate, as I am eager for those cooler and crisp days! This is one of my favorite vintage hankies that I have found and I love taking it out for fall. I'm working on some new fall items for the shoppe and will be posting towards the end of the month once I know an exact date/time I will be listing them in my shoppe!

Thank you for visiting with me and wishing you a most lovely day! xo
