I'm Falling for You Blog Hop Day 3 Ahead


Wow, wow, wow!
My fellow bloggers never disappoint.
I hope you caught all the incredible projects today.

Just Let Me Quilt Carol, shared her adorable "Gnome for Thanksgiving" with us, done in those fabulous brushed houndstooth fabrics from Benartex. I'm in love with both the pattern and the fabric!

Just Sew Quilter Carol, shared fall placemats she made with Crafters Edge Dies. She showed us how to use a half of a hexagon to make a braided edge. Ingenious!

Joy did a beautiful stitchery using our hop name, that was awesome. While the temperatures are heating up where she lives, she still worked on fall, for us all! 💓

Kathy shared table runner and napkin sets she made with us. Perfect for those cool fall days ahead!

Cheree showed us how to make the cutest little migrating bird block, and shared her love of the season with us all.  Cheree is new to our group of bloggers and we are thrilled she joined us. 

Tomorrow guarantees to bring more fall joy to our hearts...

I'm Falling For You Blog Hop...Day 2 coming to you!

   Did you all love our first day of bloggers, like I did today?

It always warms my heart when I see such beautiful projects.

Carla shared her "Welcome Fall" wall hanging with a basket of fabulous fall leaves in it. She even showed us a great new way to finish off a quiltie with a whole new twist!

Anorina made a beautiful runner with fall leaves and what a bonus for her to share the leaf patterns, with us as well.

Gail made a gorgeous Maple Leaf table runner using those awesome "Island Batik" fall colors and the Accuquilt Go Maple Leaf die.

Sharon, shared her "Autumn Jubilee" quilt along project that Carole - "From My Carolina Home" hosted last year. It's is so pretty! I need to find my pattern and make one myself. There is a brand new "Autumn Jubilee" quilt along starting in October, you won't want to miss...

And last but not least, Carol dazzled us with her "Let Your Star Shine" quilts. She's been busy stitching for many wildfire and Covid victims as well as a friend who always gives to other selflessly. She is our "rockstar"!

Tomorrow promises to bring more smiles to our faces with these lovely ladies projects!

Java Jackets



In todays world of recycle and reuse, along with my passion for getting a "cuppa" all day long, I've found that quilted "Java Jackets" are not only super fun to make, but "gift" as well.
No matter if your a "Disney Head" or someone who just loves their coffee...


with the help of


and some fun novelty prints you are on your way!
 Adding text  or graphics to convey a special message is easy when using  


My family might tell you, this "resembles" me.
I think I'm more of a "Ghastly" kinda girl, myself!



Speaking of Ghastly...with the holidays approaching, what an easy and inexpensive gift for your Halloween crazy friends, family and co-workers.
You can find my free pattern and tutorial for embellishing over on the 
Thermoweb blog HERE


Just fill them up, with a ghoulish assortment of goodies and make someone's day!


These jackets will fit any 12-16 oz cup.

I found these at the Dollar Store in my area.
 This 2 pack was $1.
Amazon for the exact same cups, wanted $19.95 for 4 packages. That's just 8 cups!
Hummm...lets do the math here?????

Now comes Christmas...oh the ideas are spinning...
It's never to early to start on Christmas!

No matter if it's a holiday or for just plain ole fun, 
there is a Java Jacket for everyone!

Dracula Garden Flag

 

It's never too early to start thinking about Halloween now is it?
You know what a crazy ole bat I am, over this holiday!
LOL!!

I'm just as crazy about that, as I am garden flags, right now
thanks to...

I can take my fabric projects outdoor and not worry about the weather.


You choose the number of coats you need
1 coat - water and stain-resistant
2 coats - waterproof and stain-resistant
3 coats - water proof and stain-resistant with a semi-gloss oilcloth finish
It paints on easily and your brush cleans up with water.


Letters have never been so easy to cut, when using "Crafters Edge" dies and the Crossover II cutter.
The dies are all individual, making it easy to mix and match in one cut.
The Crossover II machine has pressure settings that makes cutting 1 layer of fabric as easy as cutting 4-5 layers at a time.


That makes this little guy one happy little "sucker"!  
Get it?
Dracula...sucker
Ok, I really need to go back to my day job.

You  can find my free pattern over on the Thermoweb blog
HERE

Thanks to the fine folks at Thermoweb, you will be seeing flags popping up throughout the year.
I hope you join in on the garden flag revolution!
