Way too cute. I love your site.I am glad that I meet up with you. You are one of my favorite blogs to visit. I can't wait for each post. Keep up the great work!!!
June 7, 2008 8:41 AM me at and I will get your prizes mailed out ASAP!!!!

I had so much fun reading all of your comments! You are all so sweet and I appreciate the feedback. Your comments have inspired me to start some new things. I have some fun new *features* that I will be sharing with you. I know I promised I would tell you about them today, but I thought it would be more fun to surprise you as they come! Don't we all love surprises?

Also, I have a card for you. I was looking through some of my favorite sentiments from The Saltbox Studio and realized that I had never used the *homespun* sentiment. So... I thought a fun stitched card would be perfect. I ran across a delicious quilt from a magazine ad for Windham Fabrics and knew I could make one of the quilt squares into a card. I rummaged through my seriously old 81/2 by 11 pattern paper to find some pieces that looked like quilting fabric. It is times like this that I am soooo glad I hang on to all of my old stuff. The red gingham is from Keeping Memories Alive circa 1999 and the other two are from Deja Views probably around 2000 or so. I thought they worked perfectly for this quilt. I started out with my base hen image and from there it was easy to cut the rest of the pieces. Let me tell you...I wish making all quilt squares was as easy as a little tombow! LOL! I did sew around each square to give it a realistic look. I am *so* in the mood to sew! LOL! On that note; in March I started a blog called Thimbles and Thread to showcase some of my fabric art, but haven't posted anything until today. You can check it out here: I will be updating that blog regulary now as well.

I colored my image with a combo of copic and prismacolor markers. I added the sentiment from "Deck the House Companion" and a button. I didn't want to add anything else to disrupt the pattern of the quilt square. Thanks for fluttering by!
