Lots of Things Got Done This Week & Links-Updated

Great giveaway Alert go to she is giving away 4 boxes of fabric.

I finally got this lovely done for Mr. David Platt. I really love Backyard Baby fabric it is so detailed. The hardest part for me to get completed when doing a quilt is the hand sewing on the binding. My mom picked out the orange Kona fabric, to make it pop. I am glad I followed her advice.

When you look up close, which is what little David will do, you will see the little woodpecker in the trees really comes out.
Gotta get it in the mail to St. Louis.
There are certain people you talk to when you have a blog or go to other blogs that you know if they lived down the road, you would be the best of friends. One of those people for me is Ali at Very Berry Handmade She is very thoughtful and sent me FROGS. I love this fabric, not only did she remeber that I love frogs, she gave me her winnings from a competition. Did I tell you she makes the most beautiful pincusions I have ever seen.
Frogs, frogs, I got some frogs!

Love them yes I do! Thank you Ali for your frogs, kindness and new friendship!

I was so excited to find this in my mailbox yesterday from Pauline at Phoenix Heirlooms from her Leap Day Giveaway. I cannot wait to make some of the projects and the tissue holder went in my purse. Thanks Pauline!

I hope your still with me...Next I made some block for my Craftsy BOM, never to late to jump right in at Craftsy , and it is 100% free.

  2. Wow you've been lucky!! Love the blocks! The frog fabric is adorable!!! Send some my way ;D

  3. I too love frogs. When a young kid I took the screen door off our back sliding glass door took it down to the pond to help get frogs and Polly wogs. My mom could never understand how that screen always got so dirty but the rest of the house is clean. Don't Tell my mom. Thanks for posting my quilt I made from the fabric I got from you its a wonderful quilt.


  4. Wow! Your quilt is beautiful - your mum gave you great advice about the orange binding. And Richard's quilt is so beautiful too - inspirational! So glad you like the frogs. :-)
