Stickin' My Neck Out

It's back to school time.
While it no longer affects me much,  I know it frees up
stitching time for many.
Can we say "Happy Dance"? 
This cutie pie is actually a bookmark, that's perfect for kids!
With all the reading that will need to be done, for the school year...
He's just perfect.

This is from "Animal Attraction" from Annie's.
There's a flamingo that is designed for a scissors holder that would be "sew" cute too!
Think of all the events at school, when treats are needed. 
A handful of bookmarks would be fun, and better than sweet treats.
They are quick and easy to put together and just take scraps.
Scatter a few hearts on him and you've got a perfect "Valentine".

Under the Needle

What's under your needle this week?
I may have been quiet for awhile, but that doesn't mean I'm not crazy busy.
It's likely you've seen the smoke.
This week I finished 3 quilts...well the binding still needs hand stitched down
on one of them, so I guess that doesn't really count as a finish yet.
I wrapped up my week, with this fun guy under my needle.
It reminds me of the play, where the plant eats people.
What the heck is the name of that anyway.

There are just so many super secret projects. 
Your going to want to keep an eye out.
You never know just when they will pop up.

I'm Late, I'm Late...

Where did my head go?
I was supposed to pick a winner for my give away for those who
watched my "Island Batik" un-boxing video yesterday.
In the middle of the night I woke up and remembered!
Don't you love when that happens?

My humble apologies, but without further ado...

I went to Violet Cottage and used their random number generator.

Number 6 is who it picked.
Counting down, it looks like Carol S. is the winner.
Congratulations Carol...
I'm sending you an email to get your mailing info.

Don't forget the "Beat the Heat" blog hop starts tomorrow.
The "Island Batik" ambassadors are showing off all the lines of new fabrics.

Why is this post late?
Well, I'm working away on my project for
"My Favorite Quilt Block" hop

And my head is spinning with ideas for 
"Witchy Stitchy"

A little birdie told me, the delayed
"Nifty Novelties" hop is happening soon too.
I'm so excited to share my project with you!

Things are shaping up to be a fun filled fall.
