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)!

Image
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!

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 …
