Blessings from the Mount

I have a new set just uploaded called Beatitudes, taken from Matthew 5:3-10. I had a blast stitching them out. It was fun to do simple Piecing in the Hoop™, applique and stitching text and lil embellishments to each block. VISIT WEBSITE FOR FULL DETAILS on this set.

Happy Stitchin,

Gift Reminder Software

I stumbled upon a software that I thought was a neat idea. The Gift Reminder Maker (TM) creates gift reminder personalized pop-ups to help you remember to make/buy a gift for an upcoming event. You can store birthdays, anniversaries etcs.

Sometimes we all need a little reminder.

Piecing with an Apron

Jamie G. of Krause Publications send me an apron to stitch my logo onto. She's going to be working F+W's booth at quilt market this year and thought it would be good publicity. We have an apron in the book too so stay tuned!

I do have a small confession to make. I was in my jammies when I made this so I had to run and change for a quick photo to share. LOL. Working in jammies is just one of the perks from being a stay at home working momma!

Happy Stitchin,

Next to Quiltin...

Photography is a passion of mine along with my quilting. I love still shots mostly and trying to capture something pretty from something not so attractive because I believe there is beauty in everything. Yesterday, me and my son Talon walked around the yard looking for things to photograph and we were delighted to find some butterflies.

Oh and my lil guy even picked me a flower and passed to me in the bright sunshine.

What a happy Sunday!

Photo Shoot in Cincinnati

I just wanted to share a few pics from my trip to Ohio. I went there to take the still shots for my upcoming book. I brought my sister Sandy with me and we took a 9 day trip. We left a few days early to enjoy some scenery in Pigeon Forge, TN. Yes, I drove and loved it!! We crossed over 9 states and took all in that we could. We spent Mon-Fri in Cincinnati and the Krause team was GREAT!! I actually drove 16+hrs home after leaving at 2am Saturday morning cause we were missin' home. It was not boring to say the least with my silly sister by my side.
