Mollie Makes!!!

I was beyond giddy to be asked by Mollie Makes to contribute instructions for my clammy pouch. I am sure you have seen this zippy case in many of my pictures here and on IG. This little pouch is very near and dear to my heart because it includes bits of my very favorite fabrics!
You will find the instructions in Mollie Makes Issue 57 which went on sale in the UK this week! I suspect it will be in the US in a few weeks.
You can bet I will be hunting down a few copies! 
I love working with hand applique projects and the clamshell shape is one of my favorites. Plus the extra-special wonderful thing is...the size of your pouch can be easily adjusted...make it larger or make it smaller!
I made another using many of the fabrics from our Sunny Day Supply shop and a wee bit of fabric from my sweet friend Janelle! She knows me so well :)
     And Tiger Lily (which we have in the shop at a GREAT price!) is perfect for this little project!
Have a lovely Monday! I will be back soon to share with you my progress on the Spring Fever blocks!

 I mentioned in my last post that I had a little swap with Susi!
If you follow Instagram you will know Susi as Lillaluise.

I was delighted when Susi suggested we might have fun with a little hexie swap!

Well, I know I made out like a bandit in this fun little swap!

Susi sent the most amazing pieced one inch hexies...pieced! I am impressed!


And an amazing drawstring bag...

 And fabric and fun kitties and horses!

and there was candy, but I took care of that right away!

Thank you so much, Susi! It was sweet of you to suggest a little hexie swap and then to spoil me so was above and beyond! 

I have already used a few hexies Susi sent in a special project...

Thank you again, Susi!

Whoa, July!

Well July showed me who was boss! 
We had tons of walking the dog was a real treat!

We had a wedding in the family! My niece, Katie, was married! 


It was a beautiful wedding! We love weddings!
The rehearsal dinner was held in an Aviation Museum...very fun for the pilot-husbands!

    Between weddings and dogs...I have been stitching away on my Spring Fever Quilt...

 And I managed a little swap with Susi from Germany! 

Here is what I sent Susi!

 I wish I could say I have been traveling and having a great time, but we have a grandma to take to the grocery and doctors its a bit difficult to go away for very long.

That's okay...I enjoy all the vacation photos posted on IG! I am keeping a list of all the places I want to visit :) hehe!
Hope you are having a wonderful summer!
