Last of the churn dash...

Today I completed my last set of blocks for the churn dash block exchange. Every month for the last 6 months I made 12 blocks of different western fabrics. I can honestly say that I'm glad this one is over as I'm ready for making something other than the churn dash! It's a lovely block though and has been fun getting other people's blocks back. I wonder what I'm going to do with them all...something scrappy!!

Siggy Swap blocks complete! :)

Another project complete!

Modern Siggy Swap...make 101 blocks and sign them...turn them in, get 100 back. I can't wait to see what fabrics everyone else used!

I used "Eden" by Lila Tueller for moda:

A Special Gift

I recently learned the technique of printing on fabric and I'm so very thankful I know how's made some great ideas become possible.

I'm drawn to photography for so many reasons. Many of my friends take some amazing pictures and I'm continually inspired. One such friend took a photo with a flag that I especially love. I secretly snagged a copy of it and printed it onto fabric and then made this beauty for a birthday gift. Honestly it was hard to give away...but I think I was more excited to see what he would think when he opened it!

Back the shade...

Turns out he LOVES it! :) so glad...
