I too hope her roses survived this rotten winter. 

My tulips are slowing try to grow outside.  In the meantime I'll have to enjoy the grocery store indoor kind.

Happy Easter

I hope that everyone of you has a happy and blessed Easter Weekend.    I finished this table runner for a friend/client just in time for it to grace her beautiful large dining room table. 

Poor Lily had to go to the Vet yesterday for some skin irritations.  The Vet tech had fun decking her out in Bunny Ears.
Happy Easter!

Thanks to all that have entered the giveaway for the Basic Rain FQ bundle.   

Have a great weekend with your family and friends. I hope you can squeeze in some stitching too.

Happy Stitching

April showers in the fabric way

Wouldn't it be lovely if April Showers came in the form of fabric showers rather than rain (or if you are in Alberta, snow)? 
Pretty colourful Fat Quarters falling from the sky ever so gently.  Dreamy
Or perhaps in your corner of the world you are tired of April Showers or dreary fall days and need some brightening up of your day. I think I have just the thing. 

I have been asked to host a giveaway from a fantastic quilting shop.  

Sew Sisters is a Canadian quilt shop dedicated to all things quilting. 

For the past decade they have offered Canadian quilters great quality fabric, notions, books, kits and patterns, both in our store in Toronto and online. 

At Sew Sisters we believe you should buy fabric, not postage! So we offer terrific shipping rates on orders within Canada.  They will also ship internationally too.  They also host weekly giveaways on Facebook

Look what will be raining down in the giveaway.
Timeless Treasures Basic Rain 
10 FQ bundle  You can see more of it here

The colours remind me of my garden when it blooms with blue delphiniums, red petunias, yellow daisies, pink cosmos, purple irises and blue skies
My garden last June

If you would like this wonderful bright bundle to rain on you just leave me a comment of where you are from and your favourite flower.
If you are a follower or want to be leave a second comment for a second chance.

Giveaway open until Saturday April 19th
International comments welcome

Happy stitching or gardening if you are so lucky to be out doing such.


Giveaway is now closed

Has it really been almost another month between blog posts?  Where does the time go?

I have been busy sewing and running the house!  I made a few quick projects.  

A new pencil box pouch for my daughter.

 A huge box pouch for my toiletries

A welcome spring front door hanger

And also this springy table runner

Can you tell we are just itching to have some spring like weather around here.

I did manage to get some much needed vitamin D with a quick trip to Florida to visit family and Mickey Mouse over spring break.

stay tuned for a sponsored giveaway coming this way soon. 

Happy Stitching
