Because it's Tuesday...

My Love Shack top is all pieced together. Now to add some colorful borders. Or maybe a funky black and white print. I'm still noodling border ideas. I think this will be a colorful little baby quilt.

I was going to make these tiny courthouse step blocks into Artist Trading Cards, but I decided to take another direction for the cards. Into the orphan block they go until I can figure out something to do with them.

Finally got this mini finished. Meh. I had grand ideas of decorating the machine some way, but ended up just adding a button and some silver bugle beads for the needle. I did practice my free motion quilting on the busy background print. Now it's off to my swap partner.

I have a container of old buttons that are fun to look at. Love that red one. It looks like white candies suspended in red gelatin. I wonder what era(s) they're from?

How about a giveaway? My fellow Kaffe lover Julie designs the cutest sewing and craft patterns. Her company is La Todera and you can find her fun patterns here. Julie also makes some of the coolest quilts I have ever seen. Her newest pattern features these darling Cream Puff Christmas Trees. Aren't they cute with the Snow Babies? These fabric trees would make great holiday pin cushions for all your crafty friends.
Julie was kind enough to give me a pattern for a giveaway. Just leave a comment if you'd like a chance to win it.


  1. This is me, leaving a comment. Seriously ~ how's Florida. Tell her I miss her. Craziness up here in Northern Virginia with the earthquake. How nuts is that.
    Oh, and those trees are adorable!

  2. Yes please I'd love to win. The trees are adorable. And your love shacks are very lovely and colourful.

  3. Those trees are lovely. I'd love to have that pattern.


I would love to hear from you. Comments make my day!
