Sun, Sand, And Sea Block Of The Month Is Coming

I'm working to get my garden blocks sewn together, but I can't help but be excited
to start working on Sew Incredibly Crazy's Sun, Sand, and Sea Block of the Month.

Sew Incredibly Crazy

I'll be using Riley Blake Design's Crayola fabrics for my blocks...I love them!
There's the regular Crayola colors, which are really stunning and bright,
then there's the Crayola Vintage colors that blend right in. This is going to be so fun!


The block for March is mine to reveal, but first we'll be seeing Amy's block on February 1st.
It will chase that winter cold away!

Here's a peek of March's block without the fun applique that will be added soon.


I love to applique using Therm O Web's Heat n Bond EZ Print Lite Sheets.
There's no tracing involved! Just print, iron, cut.


You can join the fun and get updates by joining
Sew Incredibly Crazy and Friends on Facebook HERE.

An Easy and Quick No-Sew Valentine Pillow

With my need for holiday home decor to be easy (I love easy), this No-Sew Valentine Pillow
was a perfect project for me. Using Therm O Web's Fabric Fuse and a store-bought pillow to put it
together made it so quick. Fabric Fuse really, really sticks and holds the fabric in place! 


Check out the ThermOWeb blog to see how I used Fabric Fuse products
to make the pillow and this rosette flower.


I wish I'd had PeelnStick Fabric Fuse when my son was a Boy Scout. Sewing those patches on his
 scout shirt was a dreaded project for me. I was proud of his achievements, but with four kids and 
little time for hand sewing, adding them to his shirt was a project that I tended to put off until he 
HAD to have them on his shirt. Fabric Fuse is made for this...it really holds those patches in place!

Keeping Up With The 182 Day Solstice Challenge

So far, so good, in keeping up with Pat Sloan's 182 Day Solstice Challenge blocks.
It's a miracle! 
Maybe I shouldn't pat myself on the back too much since it only just started, but Pat's instructions 
make these so, so easy to put together I'm remaining hopeful I will keep up and make them all.

Block 1


Block 2


Block 3


I'm putting the In My Garden blocks together and hope to have the quilt top finished in a few days.
With it being cold outside I spent lots of time inside. I sewed, I watched five movies on TV,
 read two books, and enjoyed holding and petting  my two little bratty dogs.
They loved it and so did I!
