OMG! You guys! I just came up with a crazy cool idea for a fun quilt block! It should be super easy to do, too! Once I get my fabric and sewing machines back out of storage and set up, that is…

Here’s a hint: it’s based on a 9-patch block. Easy, right? (No, it’s not the pictured block. It’s gonna be way cooler than that!)

And when it’s done, I’ll post a photo and a tutorial for ya.

So, I was checking my FB feed (I know…. I know….), and I saw a plea for help from one of my favorite bloggers that she needed photos of handmade pincushions (made by her readers, of course), and she needed them TODAY!

Well, as you saw in my previous post, I finally managed to finish the Button Bouquet for the wedding. I took several photos of it, to include some detailed shots, and I figured I’d share them with you all (both). If you click on the photos, you’ll get a larger view. You knew that, right?

This is looking to be a lovely, hot, non-rainy weekend, which is really great, since it’s a 3-day weekend, and I SO want to start working on my space! No rain and warm temps should let me get started on repainting my furniture pieces for my studio. All I have to do now is decide what I want the finished pieces to look like.

My, my, my! Ask for a little inspiration, and some fun and funky ideas, do a little Googling, and stand back and watch the magic happen!

My Muse has been working overtime lately. Now she’s decided to give me just a hint of an idea for decorating my soon-to-be crafting studio. I have several old dressers and a small cupboard which are all mismatched and unattractive, but functional. And, since I already have them, they won’t cost me anything to use them for storage in my studio.
