I have two things I'd like to share today. Two things that make me happy. First are my pink roses. I snipped these late bloomers this morning. I love their soft color so much.
Next I am calling my "Stack of Happiness". Because each and every item in my stack makes me happy. I know, I'm clever with the words.
First is my surprise all the way from the UK from sweet Lisa. She saw this wonderful magazine and thought I'd like it. Simple as that. I can't tell you what wonderful and kind friends I've made through our blog world. Thank you so much Lisa! I have sat through the last couple of nights reading this magazine cover to cover. Each page is filled with cozy treasures. Take a gander.
See the adorable house. It's a sewing machine cover! I kid you not, this goes way off of the precious meter.
And for you keys of course. I looove these!
Who needs a house purse? I do that's who.
I love everything that has to do with little quilted cottages. This magazine is full of them. Thank you again Lisa! This magazine and your thoughtfulness has totally brightened my crazy week.
Now, let's take a flower break. Deep breath in....
Ok, onto the next treasures. I recently was visiting the lovely blog, Fresh Figs. If you want lots of lovely inspiration, please go visit! I couldn't stop my quick little hands from ordering these patterns.
Aren't these the most beautiful stockings? I can't wait to make some of these for Christmas. Look at the little strawberries!
And these two patterns are like mini magazines with lots of great info, and a few extra patterns too!
Another flower intermission....I'll hum for you...dooododeeeelaaaalooooleeeee....
And we're back for some more beautiful-ness. The sweet super mom Camille of Thimble Blossoms and I are doing a fun little trade. Remember this little elephant that I made for a little friend? Well Camille's little darling boy loves elephants and I looove her patterns, so we decided to do a swap. I just got her patterns in the mail. And she even sent me some extras! I love them all and can't wait to make some quilts with them. Of course I also need to order some of the great Cotton Blossom fabric that she designed. This girl's got skills! Now, time for pattern sharing.
Aren't they all amazing? She has many more quilt designs on her site to drool over. It was really hard to tell her which ones were my favorites! And here's the elephant waiting to go on his journey.
He's on his way Camille! Thank you so much for your great patterns. I love them! x
