It's a Game changer!

You know that feeling when a new product hits the market, and you get so excited? 


 Well, prepare to be dazzled, because "Thermoweb" has opened "Pandora's" box with their new


 You can turn any fabric you can iron, into a water resistant/proof fabric, that's perfect for outdoor decorating.

This "Patriotic Windsock Flag" is a fun way to kick up decorating your yard or garden. Best yet it's quick and easy to cut out the appliques with "Crafter's Edge" Star set and Alphabet dies, along with the Crossover II machine. 


Using  these Thermoweb products, you will have your colors flying in no time.

HeatNBond®Lite fusible web

HeatNBond®Light-Weight Fusible Interfacing

ThermOWeb Pressing Paper

HeatNBond Liquid Vinyl

This new "Liquid Vinyl" paints on with a soft bristle or foam brush and easily cleans up with water. Once it is dried on your fabric, you will have an oilcloth type finish that remains pliable. Just imagine all the fun outdoor decorating projects you can make.


When it's dry, the water beads right up!


Most of you who know me, know that my yard is a bit crazy. What can I say?
:-)


 My toilet planters are planted and my flag is flying.

Oh and did I mention...

this flag is reversible, too!

Cackling Stitches BOM June Blocks

                 It's June 1, and that means new blocks are released for "Hagatha's House" BOM. Carol from "Just Let Me Quilt and I, each have a block to share again this month.

Meet "Frankie". Don't let that sickly green color scare you away.
He really has a sweet soul! LOL!!
You can download him for free this month only 
Carol is enchanting us with her "Going Batty" block.
Do bats creep you out?
Well consider this...Without bats, say goodbye to bananas, avocados, and mangoes. Over 300 species of fruit depend on bats for pollination. Bats help spread seeds for nuts, figs and cacao -- the main ingredient in chocolate. If I don't have my chocolate...someone is gonna pay! So you all better start loving on those bats! 
LOL!!!
Ok, enough of that, you can find the link to this pattern on Carols blog

This BOM runs from March 1 to September 1.
On the 1st day of each month new block patterns are released. They are free until the next months blocks are released.
They will then be available in our Etsy stores for  $2, for the month's worth of blocks.
NOTE: Months when both of us have a block, we will each post our block in our own store for $1 ea.
On October 1 the entire pattern will be combined and sold in our Etsy stores for $10.

We hope you appreciate the time we put into creating this BOM quilt and understand we are keeping the costs to a minimum. If you are quick to get the patterns during the month, they are free.

Born to be Wild Blog Hop

 It's my day to share, in the "Born to be Wild" blog hop.

This month's theme brings up all kinds of images in my mind. If you read my post the other day, you saw what the wildlife in my house looks like these days! LOL!!

"Sew" for this hop, I turned to "Sew Cute Critters" by Cindy Taylor Oates for my project.


These little critters in their "wild" colors just make me smile.


There is "Sunny" the Squirrel


"Bella" the Bunny


"Fenwick" the Fox


"Finn" the Frog


"Ryker" the Raccoon


"Kallie" the Kitty


"Maya" the Mouse


"Pierre" the Puppy


"Miles" the Monkey


"Gordon" the Giraffe


"Brody" the Bear


"Olivia" the Owl

As I was framing the blocks in my photo program, I couldn't help but think, what a fun nursery set these guys would be.  Individual blocks framed on the walls and the quilt on the crib.
Oh my mind is spinning now....That's what these hops do to us.
LOL!!
Maybe the next "Grandie"...
But until then, it's all about this little "Sweet Pea" and me.


A big round of applause to Carol, at "Just Let Me Quilt" for  inspiring us all to reach for the "wild" we were born to be.


Please check to see what my fellow bloggers are sharing today
