More Booty

I won this giveaway from AMKreations. I'm a new follower there through the SMS giveaway and I'm looking forward to learning from her! The fabric is lovely and I can't wait to use it for girly things for Gracie. I've never really thought of myself as a quilter type. Too precise about measurements, too fiddly. But this book makes me want to make one. The examples are really too country for me, but even me, without any sense of eye for color and all my taste in my mouth, can see how beautiful the patterns can be with some bright contemporary fabrics. My goal is to make the first beginner one without the appliques. But - I can't start until I have the craft/playroom set and I've finished this cross stitch fairy I've (not) been working on for months. It's beautiful but slow going. Sewing has much better instant gratification. So stay tuned later this year for a quilt. Or at least some blocks ;)

I also won this giveaway from Jen @ I believe in love. Pretty, pretty. Jen is living in Texas at the moment with her family on a break from missionary work in Africa. I enjoy reading her bits from her family as well as her faith.
