Work'in on it Wednesday - A new Pattern!

Hellooooooooo! Happy Spring or Autumn to all my Aussie girlfriends! Spring and Autumn are my most favorite times of year. Winter is too cold and Summer is too hot. Spring and Autumn are juuuust right! Hmmm...sounds like Goldilocks and the 3 Bears. hee,hee,hee.

I've been ready for Spring since the day after Christmas! Why you ask? Well, my mom has a real talent for making wreaths (and for writing poetry). So for Christmas this past year I asked if she would make me a Spring wreath.

This is the wreath she made me! Thanks mom! I love it!

It's been hanging on my front porch since January 2! See, I told ya I was ready for Spring!

A while back I showed you these wool applique's I was working on.

They were so fun to make and so easy!

What I didn't show you was the Stitchery that goes with them! My stitching assistant, April Taylor, stitched this for me.

Now my pattern, "For the Love of Spring" is finished and available in my Shop.

We also have wool kits! The kit makes both appliques. They are fast and easy to make as they only measure 6"x9".

Floss? Yep, we have floss kits too! The floss kit will make the stitchery and both wool appliques! Woo hoo!

And of course you need bunny hangers! I love these little cuties!

Oooooooooooooo how I love Spring!  Well that's what I've been working on. What about you?

xx, Michelle

Happy Spring!

Happy First Day of Spring to you also, it was my dad's birthday and so a double good day for me.

Your wool applique and stitcher are lovely as are the rabbit hangers.

Congratulations on lovely designs.

Happy Spring, Shell - I also love Spring and Autumn the best!!! Your projects are wonderful, as usual, and love your wreath. Busy working on my UFO for March; table toppers for my beautiful little table stand (from your store)for the blog hop coming up on Sew We Quilt in April. House is also back up for sale. Busy, busy. JudyC sends best Spring wishes.

Your new wreath is gorgeous - although I don't know what happened to spring, do you? It's going to 87 here today! Unheard of!

I LOVE your new pattern sweetie, it is just wonderful - you design the most delightful things!!!!

I'm in love. In love with the wool. In love with the embroidery. Does that make me fickle? blessings. Marlene

That is a beautiful wreath. Some of the flowers look real. It is very pretty on your porch.
Now I see where you got your bird house inspiration from on the third H&H block.
Cute little spring wall hangings.

Sherri said...

That Spring Wreath is so gorgeous!! I love all your designs!!

Great wreath!

I have been working on two things! 1. Shoveling about 550 mole hills off our yard so we can mow. They are all full of rocks too. 2. Planning one of my many to-be memoirs - "Rabbit Blogging with Women."

Stunning wreath and Oh I love the bunny ears.
I'm enjoying making orange quilted penguin cell phone covers for my daughters $50 Tracfone LG800G cell phone's. Nadia has already scratched her touch screen so I'm sewing fast. I thought you might like to know that I'm only paying $5.99 for 40 minutes/month for each of my girls.
I'm a novice at quilting but I've learnt one thing that animal motives and cuteness makes people want your crafts.

Happy Spring to you, David & the bunnies Shell. Just popped over to order the pattern, wool felt & threads, came back to visit your blog & realised i'd forgotten the hangers. :( Oh well next time. Hugs,

kc said...

Not sure which I love the most - the wreath, the sticheries or the hangers!! Love them ALL!!!!!!

Kris said...

Shell - I love the wreath your Mom made for you!! Thanks, Mom, it looks just like Shell!! And your new pattern is the BEST!! I already love the purple one but I really like the one April did for you!! It would be hard to decide which one ot do first!! ;-) Looks like spring has sprung in your neck of the woods!! Happy day!! Kris

Well I guess I haven't been here in awhile! First, to start, I LOVE the March BOM With the little birdies! So cute!!! last week's quild guild selection is really really hard to choose. They're all so beautiful. I really have a thing for sea turtles, but the color on each of the first three and especially "Morning Has Broken" is unbelievable! And on to today's post, your wreath is so fun and cheerful! And the stitched "for the love of spring" has great color too!
