Hi ya! I know, I know, it's not even Halloween and I'm looking forward to 2015. Well, when you are a designer, you start planning for the new year in the summer! :)
I'm truly excited to share my "Blessings of the Month" with you starting in January of 2015!
First, I want to send out a HUGE thank you hug to Madam Samm of Sew We Quilt for designing this beautiful logo and button for me! She always amazes me with her many talents and all the energy she has. Hop over and visit her blog. There are tons of wonderful blog hops, tips and fun things to sign up for. Oh and there are PRIZES to win! Woo hoo! Plus, if you need some graphic design work, she would be happy to assist you.
So what are the "Blessings of the Month?" Well, I will be totally honest with you. I have been truly worn out with all the sadness, negativity and hatred in the world. I decided I wanted to do something to shine light, love and happiness on all of my friends.
I'm half Irish and half German and decided to combine Irish blessings with the look of German fraktur into my own Folk Art Fusion style. Starting January 1st and going through June1st, there will be a new blessing each month. However, there will be NO signups, and each blessing will be it's own project. So, you can pick and choose the blessing project you want or collect them all and spread some love and happiness to your family and friends.
I will have wool and Valdani thread kits available for each, but again, you pick and choose the ones you want. No pressure, no UFO pile of unfinished BOM's and no worries. It's a time to create something beautiful with your own hands, simplify your life and spread a little love.
So there you have it. Of course, I will have other designs coming throughout the new year as I love sharing my passion with you. The bunnies, Sabrina and I truly appreciate your friendship and support so we can continue on this adventure.
One last note. I wasn't able to attend Quilt Market in Houston this year, BUT I made the cover of the catalog! How cool is that!?!
Have a fun day and we'll see you back here on Wednesday for the Fellowship of the Flowers October project! ;)
Michelle, the bunnies and Sabrina too
