Sewing out brains out

Here we all are! Having WAY to much fun...
L to R: Myself(V), LeeAnn, Andrea, Bonnie, Helen, Kim, Kim, Jackie, and Karen

Jessica will be by today... ;-)


I was creatively STUCK!  Can you believe it?  Then they puled out a BAG of GOODIES for me!  They all made me house blocks, and well, I can say, I'm not STUCK anymore.... ;-)
Aren't they adorable??
  
LeeAnn (nifty), gave me this piece for our swap....  I had sent her the big red poppy for inspiration... Isn't it great?  She added button on the big white polka dots.. Brilliant.. Really very special, I love it.

  1. It's a beautiful mess! Looks so fun!

    I wasn't able to listen live to your interview with Pat Sloan, so I downloaded it and listened today. What a great interview! You're as inspirational on the radio as you are on your blog!

  2. How fun! What caught my eye was the areas around the sewing machines. It's fun to see how people have to have their areas. Meaning Leann & Jackie have a very organized area with neat little piles. And Andrea and Bonnie have fabric everywhere. I like the cluttered approach.
