It's A Winter Holiday With Benartex

Today is showtime for Benartex's Christmas in July...I hope to see you there! There will be so many amazing things to see and hear. I'm in the early show, which is 7 a.m. my time.


There will be some incredible fabric designers, project designers, and projects as a part of it. You can register for any of the shows that will be throughout the day. Register HERE.

I'll be sharing my "Winter Holiday" quilt made from Benartex's "Alpine Valley" fabric by Shelley Cavanna. It's a beautiful line of fabric!

Flashback Friday

This "Wicked Party" happened in 2019 and with a little imagination, I think you can figure out who's going to that party. 



I love my brooms that were from a friend.
There's a new one waiting to get hung up...I'll share it later.

There are a few more blog hops happening this year...let us know if you want to play along!

AUGUST BLOG HOP
Hosted by Joan - Email Joan to play along

"Call Me Crazy"


THE CHALLENGE:
Sew something that you wouldn't normally sew or share something you can't believe you sewed.
We all know that crazy and scary feeling of wondering what we were thinking when 
we started or were in the middle of sewing something out of our comfort zone.

-----------------------------------------------------

SEPTEMBER BLOG HOP
Hosted by Carol

"It's A Dog's Life"


THE CHALLENGE:
Sew your project with dog themed fabric or applique/embroidery of dogs.
As an added challenge if dogs don't ring your bell, think vintage.
Vintage blocks, quilts, fabrics, or whatever old designs makes you happy.

-----------------------------------------------------

OCTOBER BLOG HOP
Hosted by Joan - Email Joan to play along

"Monster Mash"


THE CHALLENGE:
What else would Joan be hosting in October, but Halloween madness.
She drew the long straw and gets to host this one. Lucky her!
Sew and share something scary, not scary, or something in between.
If it's Halloween related, you know we'll both love it!

-----------------------------------------------------

NOVEMBER BLOG HOP
Hosted by Joan - Email Joan to play along

"Turkey Trot"


THE CHALLENGE:
Being that this one is in November, think turkeys, thankfulness, or Thanksgiving fabric.
November also means the beautiful colors of fall, so sew something with oranges,
golds, browns, greens, or cranberry reds.

-----------------------------------------------------
