About my header

My shed is my header by my son Darrell, He painted the Robin for me and said that it reminded him of me. Because Robins use other birds nest and if there is an egg in it, they will take care of it just like its their own. He said thats what I do, I have always taken care of others in need of a home when I come across someone in need. Isnt that Sweet, I had told him I wanted a bird and this is the one he chose. Robins have solid blue eggs which are the symbols for him and his brothers and the speckled egg are the others I have taken into my home. It was very touching to me because he researched his piece, He is a true artist and has lots of great jobs. my neighbor had hers done to

I am linking up with Lets Get Acquainted today, Fabric Mutt shared her CLEAN and Really cute and creative space. I am envious right now. I have a mess going on trying to decorate. 

I am getting ready to Host a Post on Tips and Tricks Tuesdays, here is a HINT.. http://mummyquilts.blogspot.com/p/host-tips-tricks.html
 Working on my Herringbone block for the Nurture Group, its not going well for me, I need to get with Stitched in Color, she will help me out. 

Happy Quilting has started the Star Burst Quilt Along so I will start cutting on this today !! SCAREY !!! I have more, I own the entire Collection, I also am adding more greyss and lavendars with it. I just got a big order from Intrepid Threads, it feels so silky smooth.

ERICAErica from To Love Handmade Gifted me this beauty of a Dress Form and it even has a button lapel to sharpen my pins.. so cute, please visit her NEW Blog and share some bloggy friendship ! ( she is my daughter n law, thats how I was gifted, LOL )

my block.. not matching at all
These are the Blocks from Decembers Liberty and Justice Group, this group blogs once a month on Flicker, there is a Queen that choses the block and fabric, it must be patriotic either in color, block or both. We could use a few more members if your interested contact http://libertyandjusticebee.blogspot.com/
I was the queen for December and I chose a PP block from FreshlemonsQuilts. Everyone else did Christmas colors and their stunning accept for me, my sample block was with Kona Moderns, I am going to go back to my Christmas scraps and re-do to match their wonderful blocks. 

Seriously, I am spinning my wheels, from the Holidays, moving my studio and starting the New Year right, now its time to Sync the old and start Fresh, you can see on my side Bar all the great things I have joined to learn and grow. I have an anniversary coming up in February and some great Folks that will be celebrating with me, I hope you will join the party too on February 11 thru the 14th..

I am sticking my neck out there and asking a few of the vendors to sponsor some giveaways.. I would love to have a few giveaways..

Love always,
