Wild Babies 2017 BOM

Image
Janeen Van Nickerk of Quilt Art Designs @quiltartdesigns is an amazing foundation paper piecing (FPP) designer! She is one of the reasons I love FPP! Her "Wild Babies BOM for 2017", are gorgeous so far and I admit up front I may not yet have the experience to do the blocks justice but I am going to try! Maybe you should join me!Each month she releases a block for free for that month but after the month is up it will cost you a few bucks. Make sure follow her blog so you see the post each month when it is released! Quilt Art Designs: January Block of the Month Then go to her Shop on Craftsy Quilt Art Designs | Craftsy and download the pattern. Print it off and get busy! This is January's block, Koala Baby, that you might have to pay for it you don't get it before January 31, 2017! I downloaded my pattern and will work on getting caught up between my other obligations! First thing to do is find the fabrics in the right colors! I love that her patterns give you …

Aurifil Thread DOM Reboot

Image
Aurifil is going back to 2012! To give you a chance to revisit embroidery design blocks. In 2012, Aurifil Floss was not invented and everyone used Aurifil 12 wt. thread to do embroidery. But now, Aurifil offers 270 stunning colors of Aurifloss, 100% Cotton 6-strand floss but I still use 12 wt. to hand stitch designs and love it! So whether you use floss or 12 wt. these designs are still so cute that they shout to be made by the public again. Aurifil is having a monthly linky party with the blocks and you could win Aurifil Floss!Interested? Go visit Stitch the 2012 DOM Reboot: January | AURIbuzz and download the January block and instructions. Designer Roseann Kermes of Rosebud’s Cottage first introduced her Snowbird block in January of 2012. What a great way to practice your embroidery skills! I think I will try to make the one a month too! So, that link again is Stitch the 2012 DOM Reboot: January | AURIbuzz Stitch up your very own version of Snow Bird and upload a photo of you…

2017 Comes Roaring In

These are my happy little people! They make my heart sing and tears flow when they are unhappy. Today was Miss Z's Birthday, the big 4 and I didn't even get to call her. We see her on Sunday for her party. Happy Birthday sweet girl Nana loves you! This guy is growing up so fast! Handsome, shy, and smart he will have the ladies lined up one day. He is just fine and healthy for his age! We had a great time at a couple of girls birthday party. Here is another one of our babies "Tia" at almost 14 weeks she is learning to play with other dogs next door more her size and trying to stay out of "George" and "Brandy's" way. When she get tired she finds me and sleeps on my feet as I sew. I have spent more time with her training her to be a lover not a fighter, and I will say it is very tiring but rewarding. Snowball, Aurifil, and I are working on few secret projects! It is keeping me busy. I think 2017 will be quite the quilty year for me. Som…
