New Direction of Ideas

I just got home from Houston where I attended the International Quilt Market and Festival. My head is just spinning with ideas! I even got up this morning about 5 because I could picture a quilt idea in my head and I just had to get to my computer and start designing. I know I’ve said forever that I hate sewing, but I’m starting to view it in a different exciting way. I don’t see myself sitting down and spending months on one quilt, but I do have in mind some smaller quicker projects. My mom was great and sat down with me in front of a sewing machine and went over what each of the presser feet do and showed me all the wonderful things I can do with my Bernina. While she was at dinner with some friends one evening, I made this block from some of her fabric scraps using the paper piecing method ~

Mom made sure that I came home with just about every notion made under the sun so I can continue exploring. We’ll see what I come up with now that I know how to use my “crafting machine” for other purposes.

Yum, What is that Smell?

That smell is Uplifting, Refreshing, Fabulously Fresh and Just Divine. Seriously. Those are just a few of the creative names that Jenn of Jennuinecandles gave her 100% Palm Wax candles. The candles come in a variety of shapes and sizes. This is one of my favorite containers she has listed ~

Take a browse around her ArtFire studio and maybe you’ll find a new Annual Tree-Dition ;)

October is here

It is Breast Cancer Awareness month, or as my dear friend calls it “The Month of Breasts”. For some of us survivors, it is all year round though. I know that I am aware every day when I wake up until I fall asleep at night. Please remember to do your self-exams and get your mammograms as suggested by your doctor. Early detection can be a lifesaver.

I finally got my MissBerly’s Designs studio up and running on ArtFire. MissBerly’s Designs are all of my pink ribbon creations and all this month I have my items on ArtFire marked down 10%! I have hundreds of items to list so new ones are being added all the time. Come over and take a look!
