I entered this giveaway on one of my favorite blog sites. The blog is called Ravelly and it is run by Rhonda. She hosts a BOW(block of the week) and a BOM(block of the month). She also has tutorials on her site. Anyway, I decided I was going to participate in the current BOW for haunted houses and she had this giveaway in the post. Well, I won! Aren't these charms cute?

I am taking a class at The Quilt Show on Drawing Faces on Fabric. I have been waiting for this class to be posted for a while now. I started yesterday and I have to say it is going well. I was able to shade the face and make the chin pop out. I start lesson two today. So excited!
UPDATE: I finished the face. Ok for a first try. I will continue to practice and apply what I have learned to future doll faces. :)

Ok, I have to admit, I enter every giveaway and sweepstakes I run across. I can’t help it. I don’t often win, but I keep entering. Well, I entered a giveaway for Mettler Web Bond and I won. The box arrived and I was pleasantly surprised when I opened it. Not only was the web bond in the box, but I also got five spools of Mettler thread.
I just bought the book, Fabric Embellishments, so these supplies will be used as I work my way through the book. I plan to use the web bond to adhere my appliqué pieces and use the thread for surface decoration.
I will post as I go through the processes.

I love Moda fabrics, so I was excited about this title. Using precuts really appealed to me as a busy mom who loves to quilt. I sat down on a quiet evening and began to thumb through the pages that promised delectable recipes at every turn.
Bed quilts, gift quilts, bags, placemats, etc. make up this collection of celebration projects. The 'chefs' have covered the whole year with something for many occasions. The book is sectioned by holiday and time of year. I really like the graduation autograph quilt with great fabrics. Often times, I like a quilt and would like to make one just like it or from the same designer or manufacturer, but the book does not say what designer/manufacturer was used. This book has a resource guide for the materials used in the project, which is very helpful.
While there are some cute projects in the book, it does not excite me as I expected. Great book for beginners, though.
