Have a Latte!! (or two)

Some of you don't know that coffee
is well....
One of my favorite things.

And this beautiful fabric from Clothworks
is right up my alley.

 
(Isn't so cute?  I just love the quotes!)
 
I always try something different
when I make a quilt -
A different technique,
maybe a different type of block. 
Well, I took the tradition log cabin block
that I have been wanting to try for ages
 
 
 

and made a bunch of strips
using my handy Accuquilt Log Cabin die...

 
 
played with it a bit .....



and
Came up with my new super power!!
COFFEE!! 





I was able to finish up a quilt top.

Thanks to Clothworks for being a great sponsor,
to the lovely Joan of MooseStach Quilting.

Please check out these coffee hopping bloggers.

Sophie's Universe - CAL

 
I have been back to
my crochet hook.
I joined a crochet group on
Facebook and I fell in love
with the most fun little crochet-a-long
(Like I need another project)
 
 
I picked colors from my stash.
Although, there is not
going to be enough to
finish this off.
 
 
 
I am on week 3 of the CAL,
and it is on week 13,
so I have to
play a little catch-up.   
 
I thought I would add a bit
of yellow to the mix of
all the of blues.

 
Now back to my hook. 
 
And don't forget to enter the GIVEAWAY
that I have going on.
 
 
 
You can find the Color Selection and progress here.

I decided last week,
Ohhh, I think I have
time to embroidery a cup or two
and decided to join in the hop
and well.....
 
 

 
I am slightly hooked on
created these cuties.
A little crocheted edge,
embroidery, and..



 
 
I finished these hankies up in no
time and they were
sweet little gifts for my nieces for
Easter.  A little keepsake
for them to have for a very
long time.

Vintage Stitching and a GIVEAWAY!!


I have been traveling
with needle in hand over
the last couple weeks.
I managed to finish a couple little projects.
 
Maybe you or your mother
carried one... 
 

 
 
 
  
I always wanted a pretty hankie, so
lady-like and  dainty.
A lovely to pull out of your purse
or set upon your dresser. 
 
 
Adding a sweet little bit of
personalizing on the corner.
 
 
The details of these are
I added the colored crocheted edge, and
then I tested out my new
Fantasia Aurifloss set.
Which I LOVE!! 
They travel a lot better than
that rolled on the little plastic spools. 
And who can resist those sweet little
wooden spools.
 
 I used an iron on transfer from
Colonial Patterns for both the
 hankies.
 
 
 
 
 


These two will probably find their
way into to a Easter basket or two.


 
and I will have to make a couple for myself.
