Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day has exploded in my craft room.  I love V-Day. Second only to Christmas in my book. Working on lots of beautiful projects that I will be sharing soon.
And yes, I will work on the floor when the table is already covered in STUFF. Didn't get a picture of that. ;)

Don't forget, if you haven't checked it out, my 50% off birthday sale is going through Sunday at Midnight. Lots of good deals left!

Fabric For Cosmo Bag

I finally received my fabric for the Style Stitches Bag Challenge. :) Yay!

Wild World by Jenean Morrison for Free Spirit. 
Top: Main Fabric
Middle: Lining
Bottom: Accents

Here is a link to our Flickr group. Lots of great choices so far! I just loved the Spring time look of this fabric. I knew I wanted a print, but not something really bright. More subtle. I'm really excited to get started. But I have some other projects that need to come first. Still have a couple weeks for this, right?? ;)

Style Stitches Monthly Challenge

Wow! What a month! How was everyone's Christmas and New Years?
My Christmas was amazing. My Mother in Law got me this.
Well, she got me an obscene amount of Joann gift certificates. I had enough left over to get a couple dies too!
Then, my husband/sister-in-law& her boyfriend/my dad gave me cash and I was able to get THIS!!!! 
And I have been in hog heaven. I am so grateful for the blessings in my life.

Now that everything is settled back down somewhat and we are back in the saddle, I have decided to join a sew along. I was looking into Quilting Bees, Block Swaps, Quilting Swaps, Mug Rug Swaps and nothing jumped out at me that I knew I would be able to legitimately commit to and enjoy. I'm still nervous about quilting. I need to just make a quilt and get it over with!! ;)

But, then I got wind of a monthly Bag Challenge over at JemJam. Bags? Bags??? I can DO that! I'll be doing that anyway! This is perfect!! I will be trying new styles, new techniques and will be able to put the finished product in my shop (hopefully). PLUS, there will be two random winners every month for gift certs to Above All Fabric and Fat Quarter Shop. That's just icing on the cake!

Here is the link for the rules and regs: JemJam Style Stitches Rules

The first bag went into blog land a few days ago, so I am behind....but that' okay. Better late than never. :)
I just ordered my Style Stitches book from Pink Chalk Fabric and will have to wait for that, so that gives me time to finish up a few projects in the works. This is so cool. I've wanted this book since it came out and now, the perfect excuse to get it for myself. ;)

Happy January you all and here's hoping you find something exciting that inspires you!
