Here Are My Words!


Sew we quilt


Allot of blogs have been asking what is your "Word" for 2013.
Mine is ORGANIZE!
Wanting to be apart of this fun blog hop and incorporating a way to have less 
clutter, I choose to make a quilt cover for my loose quilting pattern binder book.
Now they will have a home!



Now I know why so many like sewing with Silk Thread!



Used rulers on front, pebbles on the spine and stencil on back.

 Back

 Gold fabric paint.
Now I know where to look for some future practice ideas.

Here is a the list for the others that are posting today.
Stop by and see what creative ideas they have come up with.

                   I want to Thank Madame Samm and Linda at Buzzing And Bumbling  
                          for all your help in scheduling and hosting this fun event.
 Can not imagine all the work you put into this.


Till We Quilt Again,
