Two fantastic things to show you all this post.

First, my second ever Sew Sampler box from Fat Quarter Shop has arrived.

Once again, Kimberly Jolly has read my mind on things I need or want to try.  I’ve been looking at different ways to store bobbins and can’t wait to try the Bobbini out. I keep hearing about Aurifil thread and want to test it out and here are two spools of it.  A guild I belong to has asked for handmade Christmas ornaments for a charity fundraiser, the fabrics in this month’s box will be put to good use.


I love the little ‘extra’ in the box.  Last month was a crossword, this month a coloring sheet.


What a relaxing way to end a day!

Also this post brings a new mini for the Crossroads Quilt Along by Sondra Davison of Out of the Blue Quilts.


I’m in love with my color choices for this and can not wait to see a finished product.

Here are the four I have made so far;



This post will be my last regular post till the end of August.  My kids are all out of school for the summer and I cannot guarantee time in my craft room when they are  home.  I will post as I complete projects but I know it won’t be twice weekly.

Enjoy your Summer!
