Prancing lamb freebie

Spring means babies!
Like this little lamb...frolicking about.
One of my favorite shows to watch with my cat (yes I said it)...is the show "Too cute".
It is usually kittens or dogs from birth to when they can be adopted.
My cat trix watches it intently...she can't keep her eyes off that show.
It cracks me up!
This freebie could be a tag on a baby shower gift.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
I got this sweet vintage quilt at an antique show last weekend.
It was.....$15!
It will be perfect for displays like at the quilt show or folded on a shelf....for cuteness. 
It has a few spots....but I like it so much! 
I am not sure what the quilt block is?  It is very interesting. 
These are an antique store find...only a few bucks for these 12 paper pieced squares...so cute!
All the months are represented. 
I was a Hallmark junkie growing up....I always had to get stickers or hello kitty stuff...and also stuff with Miss Piggy.  Hallmark was my dream place.
I found this little book from Hallmark...so darned cute!!! 
I love that style that was so popular in the 70's!!! 
Can this scarecrow be any cuter?
Yellow is a dominant color in this book...very sunny! 
I got some awesome Halloween fabric at a thrift store. 
Also a vintage embroidery hoop with a holder. 
Pretty crafty!
Only $2.69.
I wonder why that was the magic number for the hoop? 
Ok....at the antique show...I found these super creepy puppets!!! 
They are pretty old and interesting to look at. 
The black dressed one is going right in my scary section of Halloween decorating...lol. 
They cost me a dollar each. 
My panda now has a bib! 
What a sweet doll bib...embroidered and it has a crochet trim. 2 dollars.
I wanted this small drawer for buttons. 
White buttons are my favorite...they go with everything!!!
Have a Happy
Weekend!!

___________________________________________________________

I just drew up this fairy with flowers and decided to make it a simple inexpensive pattern
Design measures: 6 1/2" x 8 7/8".
This pattern sheet comes with embroidery instructions and tips for embroidery (my secrets). 
These are 3 smaller summer designs...quick and easy.
1. Dream it, do it weekly planner...it features zinnia flowered hexies (my artwork)....Every day of the week is here....there are lots of lines and space to list all your things you need to get done....plus a smaller section for the weekend.
2. Think big thoughts....a sheet to write goals, inspiration, ideas, use as stationary and more!! This also has zinnia patterned hexies in a flower shape.
I made some hexies as design elements.
Also I have these 2 sheets that are together...Happy go lucky and Best day ever.
1. Best day ever...it features shamrock hexies (my artwork)...plenty of room to write and sned a special not or letter.
2. Happy go lucky....a sheet to write goals, inspiration, ideas, use as stationary and more!! This also has shamrock patterned hexies in a flower shape.
Get your inspiration on!
I just finished this set of 12 different tags or labels....featuring my surface pattern designs.
These are perfect for inspiration on gifts, envelopes, banners, and more!
Each label is: 2 3/8" x 2 3/8". You get: Thank you (2), Seize the day (2), Life is good! (2), Get your happy on (2), thank you so much, Be you tiful (2) and Do what you like. 
These labels look great on flowers...
They are perfect for saying thank you on envelopes and mail.
They are cheerful and bright.
You can print on white cardstock, matte photo paper, or glossy presentation paper. Punch a hole in tags and add ribbon or string....so easy. Glue them onto bakers twine for a simple banner.
My daughter Selina has recently made this cool hanging print kit....
It's a great way to hang a print...and have it lay flat and so cute too. I like it better than always putting prints in a frame.
She will have them in her shop soon.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is me and my dad....a long time ago...lol
He has been having lots of health problems lately and I am hoping he recovers and gets some well needed rest and relaxation.

Have a great weekend!

Practice makes much better!

Many of you guys know I am always working on fabric design.
I love doing it and I love playing around.
Above is a design with Valentines in mind. 
I put these fabric designs in the hexie flower.
I love drawing cute characters....like this Birthday party bunny.
I love romantic florals and motifs.... 
and I love bold colors like this orange. 
Lime green is a favorite of mine when it comes to color choices. 
Sweet and simple is important...because not every design can be a "Star"....some have to be the supporting cast.
I love the variety of colors in this one. 
This is a collection that all fits together...it reminds me of a lemon aid stand...in colors that is.

Flowers in vases... 
Big over sized or giant scale is fun. 
Beautiful grays...

This is a mock up of what some of my fabric would look like on products.
Scarecrows!

And just the scarecrow heads...lol. 
Pumpkins....

Some of these designs are older....some are brand new...
but I love them all...
and this is just a small fraction of what I have made so far.

Thanks for stopping by!
