Remember this old cross-stitch fabric? I don’t recall what it’s called, but I did enjoy working on it. This is my own design. I got it and three other seasonal designs published in a McCall’s craft magazine years ago. ‘Wonder if I can find my copy? My mom bought all the others!

I am Loving this Website!
It’s a free online magazine for crazy quilters by crazy quilters. The October Issue has just been posted. What a treat! http://www.cqmagonline.com/
Something Else I Found!
Remember these prints that everyone put on sweatshirts and embellished with glitter glue? I found this little guy already fused to Wonder Under and waiting for a grandchild in my craft stash. I picked up a plain, red, long-sleeved tee shirt at WalMart Sunday, and it looks like I’ll be getting out the iron, soon!
Here Comes Halloween!
Two Good Things!
I found the handkerchief in a package of 2 (the other one is white with yellow flowers,) in the dollar bin at CVS. I decided to embellish the printed corners with silk ribbon embroidery and use them in my crazy quilt projects.
The flowers are two-toned and I didn’t have any variegated ribbon that would work. What I did have was a set of dye markers from Dharma Trading. I used the pink one in this set to “over-dye” areas of my already solid pink silk ribbon. I am very pleased with the results!
A Red and Gold Audition
I’d like to make a book cover for a paperback novel. I drafted my pattern and put out these fabrics and trims to choose from.
Then, I removed the trims and any fabrics that didn’t seem to fit. (The gold paisley fabric at the bottom is from Evening Star Designs)
I Love this Fabric!
It came from Evening Star Designs in Raleigh, NC. They sell fabric and embellishments for crazy quilting. (They are also now carrying quality quilter’s cottons.) This is a patterned velvet. I used a scrap of it in Mama’s Bible cover. I photographed it so I can contact Evening Star and request more.
What I love about their website/store is that you can buy sample packs of fancy fabrics VERY reasonably. You can even request packs of colors you choose! Here’s the link: http://www.eveningstardesigns.citymax.com/
What a Wonderful Day!
