My First CHOSEN Treasury!

That means, instead of being chosen to be in someone else's treasury, I got my own treasury! I got to pick the items in it! It was really fun, and I liked seeing all my favorite things on one page. Yeah, I put one of my things there, heh. Take a look!!

Cranberry Necklace

I rarely ever post about jewelry, even though it has taken over my life (in a good way)! Here is a necklace that I adore. My first one sold in a matter of minutes :oP

Pillow Case Project Day 2

I received my Reprodepot order, hooray! The fabric that I am in love with, the one with the words on it...I know it doesn't match PERFECTLY or anything, but I still think it goes with the others pretty nicely. I also like the green Kona Cotton I picked out. I am still deciding if I want to use the sunflower yellow I bought.

So far I have 8 Kaffe Fassett flower triangles, 8 Kaffe Fassett twig trianges, 8 word fabric triangles, 8 green trinagles, and 16 cream triangles, for a total of 48 so far. I am just going to keep cutting and laying them out until they equal the size I need. A little bit of progress every day! That's how I keep a project from driving me nuts!
I also got a few little toys from Reprodepot, including a button covering kit, and a snap fastened kit. I'm sure I won't be able to resist playing with those this week.

P.S. I just hit my 400th sale in my Etsy shop! Thank you to all my customers!

New Supply Shop Added

Hello all! I just added a new shop to the list of 'Places we like to buy are stuff'. It's called Pink Chalk Fabrics. They have all the cool designers, and do something I REALLY LOVE, which is sorting by color! You can go on and see everything that is orange, or whatever your favorite color is. It's a nice tool for matching up fabrics for projects, especially quilts. Enjoy!

Pillow Case Project Day 1

I recently bought a great memory foam body pillow and decided this would be the perfect opportunity for a small quilting project. The pillow measures 50 inches long by 19 inches wide by 11 inches deep.
I am using a quilt from the Denyse Schmidt Quilts book called Flock of Triangles. Mine will be a different size, but the design will be the same. I have picked out at least 4 fabrics that I will use for sure, and two more that I may throw in. Three of the fabrics I already have on hand, as you can see in the pictures; a cream colored Kona Cotton, and two awesome prints by Kaffe Fassett. I ordered two more colors of Kona Cotton from Reprodepot, along with a print that I ADORE and I hope will match the color scheme. When they arrive, I will take more pictures!
I used my rotary tool to make quick work of the triangles. I cut 10 inch squares, cut those into 4 smaller squares, and cut those squares in half. That's it!
Tune in for updates :o)

Another Treasury!

Sorry about the cropped picture. They sure don't make it easy to snapshop these treasuries. But lookie! There I am, tiny lavender post earrings. It makes me so happy!
