Hazel Swap

I spent a lot of time working on my Hazel Maina Swap. Choosing the pattern was easy but the size I had to think about! Elizabeth Hartman of Patterns by Elizabeth Hartman — HAZEL HEDGEHOG II pdf quilt pattern comes in two sizes with this pattern so I made the pillow size. My partner had asked for a Magical Hazel so I spent time pick just the right fabrics from my Alison Glass collections. I really love the white and gold border fabric from her new line Seventy Six | Alison Glass, oh heck I love all her fabric! It was really hard to mail her off.

The pattern is super easy! Pick a size and get started!

I haven't seen an ugly Hazel yet have you?

Then I received the Hazel of my dreams! Rainbow Hazel is just beautiful in her grunge colors (I need these fabrics)! My partner, Jen @justjoshinkids did an amazing job! I am completely satisfied and have Hazel hanging where I can admire her beauty! My daughter visited this weekend and tried to steal her, but not this time! She is mine!

 

 

This weekend we had visitors and my Granddaughter just wanted to sit with me and learn to cut fabric! I may end up with a crafter yet! I certainly hope so. No way I will ever use up my stash alone. But that is part of the fun!

 

Tell me about something you would like to swap? Lisa

 

Sew Whatcha Making? linky Party


Hello out there! I am trying to decide if I want to invest time and a little money into having a linky party once a month or once a week! Maybe not at all! My questions to you is would you come and link up?

My idea is once a month I would do a post on what I have been making with the link. You could link anything you have created! Crocheting, knitting, sewing, quilting, paper crafts. I don't know maybe you paint rocks, like my friend does.

Then we could all look around and be inspired! Do you want prizes? Everyone who enters a link is entered into a giveaway for something? Which sign do you like best, top or bottom, start over!

 

I have wanted to do something creatve for a longtime then I got lost in the ease of Instagram but I realized not everyone who reads a blog is on instagram. Different people like to change it up a bit but my heart is still in blogging and creating.

 

So tell me what you think and help me make a decision. Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. Lisa
