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

LOWVOLUMNFAT8SWAP

Lowvolumnfat8swap

I am so excited about this I can hardly type.. 
I have decided my love of low volume and texty prints is out of control! I have collaborated with SEWMEASONG ETSY SHOP OWNER BECCA to Help us out with fabric purchases and she has offered a 25% discount on a $30.00 purchase. Until March 31st. With the code TEXT25. If you are in any of my swaps I am involved with you can take advantage of this discount. Your not limited to text or low volume purchases to take advantage of the discount.   I have had the best time lately, playing with other groups. I buy alot of my texty and lowvolumn fabrics from these  fantastic etsy stores. I am showing you some samples at the end. 
On to the Show !    
IF you are a fabric store and want to sponsor our group with a purchase discount, email me and I will add it to the blog or you can put it in the comments. 

Show her the love with following her shop...

What the gest of this is you send to me 1, 10, or 20 fat8's  and I will swap them out with other swappers. This can only be successful if we have swappers so tell everyone. My goal is not to duplicate. 

 Mara from  Secretly Stitching made a tutorial here http://secretlystitching.blogspot.gr/2014/07/how-i-cut-my-fat-eights-of-fabric.html
The answer is 11 x 18 ( or pretty close depending on fabric manufacturer) the reason I like to do it this way is so you can at least get a layer cake out of it or 6 charms, for me it's the perfect size!

Deadline for receiving April 16, 2015
Mail out for SAE is April 20th, 2015
