108 Degrees

Can only mean one thing....
Mojito time!!!
Oh look my drink matches my Flower Sugar...I know it's a sickness :) I'm gonna go make more pincushions and sip my mojito and try to stay cool. When it's this hot my window unit starts to have difficulty :(
Hope you all have a great weekend!!!

I think I just might have enough Flower Sugar now....maybe...I even cut into it and used it!! I had to after I heard my darling daughter remark to her friend, after I had gleefully showed them my gorgeous pile, " she's just going to stare at it for awhile and then put it away for "special". The bag is the Jane Market Bag from "Posie rosy little things" with a few alterations. I think I could have stayed up all night making these...so much fun and instant gratification. I ran out of crushed walnuts so I stopped...for now.
The pin cushions were inspired by one of these wonderful little Japanese books that I have been collecting for a few weeks...I love them!! Of course I had to buy some fabric while shopping for the books...
The books and fabric are all from Superbuzzy. Well not the Flower Sugar, that I've been collecting from all over the place. Sharon and I are "Flower Sugar Buddies" and send each other updates as we find new places to buy it. She said we will go to rehab together because we are addicts lol!! Maybe I shouldn't be laughing, it's not too far from the truth :)

Country Loft part 2

So yeah I'm lame...I said I'd be back "tomorrow" and here it is days later...sorry. It's really late and I'm exhausted so here are the pictures of the class projects and patterns from "The Loft". Some amazingly talented ladies (and men as it turns out) have taken part in this show...my good friend Janine being one of them :) This is her Stars Around the Garden BOM and did she do an amazing job or what? Oops this is a pattern from the shop that I liked and should have been in the last batch....I know I have some repeats and some out of order--but it's late and I figured you'd rather sort through it than have me not put everything up---right? Again you can click on anything to enlarge and all of these projects are from the Country Loft so they can get you the patterns etc..their # and more goodies is in my previous post. I put some blocks individually up down below for those of you who do your own quilting (like me) because they are so inspiring...so please click and enlarge she has done some amazing stuff!


I am so sorry to anyone who left a comment on my last post and didn't get a response... I get my email on my blackberry and sometimes I delete it all on accident :( I did that the day before yesterday so please forgive me? I have a love/hate relationship with technology :)
