Happy Monday!

Hi Everyone!

How was your weekend? I was pretty busy. The hubby got home from Canada last night...thank heaven... I missed him! Here is what I finished up on Saturday during the Project Runway Marathon:


Then yesterday I wrote a tutorial for the newsletter on an easy way to make butterfly blocks. Have you seen these all over the net? Like Rita's here I adore that quilt. There is just no way I can spend that kind of time on those blocks though, so I decided to come up with a fast easy way to make something similar. So I did a normal one and a wonky one for fun...


Hope you have a great start to the week!

Talk soon!

  4. your pillow is really amazing. My eyes leap from area to area, trying to figure out how it was put together. The mixture of form gives me tingles--I think we'll be seeing more of this soon in blogland!

  6. Normally I would have looked up butterflies on the other blof so I could comment as just adore them. but what has knocked me out is that cushion. Where has it materialised from as just love the curves, the off-centre look and the colours.
    Thank you for sharing & I will bo back to your site.

  9. Oh my goodness, I just made a quilt top with fabrics from your shop (a Maya bundle) with that butterfly block. I only have this picture so far, but it's so easy to do and looks so pretty!
