Something Cute!

Morning pals! How are the days treating you?  We've had a lot of rainy days lately and it's been wonderful.  Yesterday Bret and I went to the nursery and picked up some flowers for my wire basket on the back step.  The sky was blue and filled with puffy white whipped cream clouds.  He planted the basket up for me and put on a string of new fairy lights (on a dusk to dawn timer) so my back porch is sorted for now.  It feels like spring, cheerful and fresh.
Speaking of cheerful, how cute is this pincushion kit from HollyHill Quilt Shoppe? I think it's SUPER CUTE.  I follow HollyHill on Instagram and had seen the wonderful Mother's Day Celebration Brunch that included this cute project and was so envious of the attendees.

ENVY. But luck was with me and in January I saw that they were offering kits.  I knew that I wouldn't be able to work on it immediately, but it would be something to stash away (but not too far away) to make later. (FYI Since Jan hand-paints the pitcher for you and the kits require time to prepare, it does not ship immediately.)

What a fun project.  I loved making all the adorable pins.  Each little pin is packaged separately so you don't need to worry about using the right beads for each pin.  And it's all labeled to go with the great instructions.

It was so fun. It's a dainty little pitcher.  Couldn't be sweeter.
I'm at the bottom of my coffee cup so time to start the day!  If you feel so inclined, tell me what you're up to!  Happy Monday friends! xop

Coffee time.

Morning friends!  How are you?  I'm trying to get back in the groove around here. I love this space to spend time with you.   Its been a rough year for us, but we're slowly getting back to our regular routine.  


I received a great treat in the mail, look at these great new Splash Olfa self healing mats and the new Splash rotary cutter.  They're sure going to sewing a lot more cheerful.  Thanks to Olfa for sending them to me. 

Do you know Olfa has a blog?  You can check it out here. They've started a brand Ambassador  program and they have a new Design Team.  Be sure and check them out .  There should be a lot of great new content coming our way. 
I hope to be back here on a more regular basis soon.  I miss hanging out with you!  Tell me how things are with you!!!  xop
