Fellowship of the Flowers week 31 and our July project!

July, July, July, it's almost time to say goodbye. Are you having a good summer?

I know most of us are "Busy as Bees" this time of year. There are family vacations, barbeques, gardens and lots of time being spent outdoors. That's why I decided our July project would be something a little different. Something for all us "busy bees."  ;)


The project is actually two! There is a bee postcard, which is fun to send through the mail, but could also be used as a regular card to be framed.


Then there is the bee pin, which would be perfect on a package and then...


can be used on a jacket, bag, hat or re-gifted to brighten someone else's day. You could even add a magnet on the back and make these for little hostess gifts for the holidays! You could tell the hostess your are so "Hap-Bee" to celebrate with her! ;)

Remember, you can join The Fellowship of the Flowers anytime between now and December. Please click on the tab above for all the information. 


Now, here is the flower for week 31.

This flower was just lots and lots of therapeutic stitching. :)



































I decided I wanted the stitches to be the focal point.



















Thirty one weeks already. Good gracious.

Sneaky Peeky of "Falling for You"

Hi ya! How was your weekend? Mine was insane crazy! I will share more about it this Friday.


Today I want to show you a sneaky peeky of a new design I'm working on. It's actually a remake of a previous design, but in my Folk Art Fusion style.  It's called "Falling for You."


Here are the wool colors I am using. Aren't they fun?

My goal is to have the entire pattern, as well as kits, ready for you on August 15. So, I better get hopping!

Have a fun day.

Hoppy Friday! A little Irish toast for you.


May the light always find you on a dreary day.


When you need to be home may you find your way.


May you always have courage to take a chance.


And never find frogs in your underpants.


Hee,hee,hee. That makes me LOL!!


Hoppy Friday!

Light, love and hugs to you,

Fellowship of the Flowers week 30

Wow, only 20 to go. Amazing how fast the year is going.

I'm looking forward to sharing something totally different and new with you in 2015. It will be a block of the month, kinda sorta, but not really. There will be stitching, quotes, Folk Art Fusion, wool felt and...well lots of fun. The best part is there will be no pressure to keep up. It will only last for 6 months. You can do as many or as few as you want. I've discovered that most people are worn out by June. January is boring and they are ready to start new things. By June, everyone is outside playing. I also find I don't want to be tied down to huge commitments. So...stay tuned for something different.


Until then, here is our 30th flower.


This is how it looked before I stitched it.


I combined the ric rac and the yarn.


Remember, you can join us anytime between now and December. Please click on the tab at the top of my blog to find out more.

Elizabeth Armstrong and her felt magic

Hi ya!

Good gracious am I ever running around like a crazy bunny. I rarely go on vacation and now I know why. It's so hard to catch up when I return. It was fun to get away though. ;)

One of the things I wanted to do on vacation was visit an alpaca farm. I'm infatuated with these wonderful creatures. Plus, I am becoming more and more infatuated with wet felting and all the amazing things you can create with wool roving. The farm wasn't open for tours when I was there, so I will have to plan another visit.


Today I would like to introduce you to Elizabeth Armstrong. She is an amazing fiber artist in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. You know I love my Aussie friends to bits!


I purchased Elizabeth's book a few months ago. Oh my...is it ever wonderful!


Her work is so full of color and adventure.


This is a piece she made for a school. How cool is that! I love that it is framed. I'm still thinking about whether or not to frame my art quilts. I'm a neat freak and always think about dust. hee,hee,hee.


Elizabeth teaches classes and sells some of her original pieces.

Hop over and visit her HERE. I know you will enjoy meeting her and if you are in Australia, you might even be able to sign up for one of her classes.

Light, love and hugs to you,
