Catching Butterflies....

My cat Sally used to catch butterflies and leave them in my when I got home from delivering mail all day....I go in the bathroom, to take a shower, to find Sally proudly laying around her yellow butterflies.
I told her not to get me any gifts....but she did not listen.  
Sally is in kitty heaven now...but when I see a yellow butterfly around the garden, I imagine her (in angel form) catching them in the air.

Copy and save this sweetie!
This past Wednesday I turned 50 and my hubby brought me 50 roses and a quilting machine....he did real good!!!
I am going to keep
He always spoils me....he is so sweet!
Once I put the machine in the big grace frame I will take a pictures and show you.
My daughter Selina was featured in a blog!!!!

I am very proud of Selina, she is only 19 and already a busy business woman.
She has a lot more shapes than these in her shop!
Lots of mini hoops, hexies, rings, earrings, owl, bird, dragon eggs...
they are inspired from Game of Thrones.
She is always busy and designing new things.

Blue bird of happiness...

Some where over the rainbow...where blue birds fly...there is happiness!~~
This was super fun to make!
This is done mainly with a backstitch...and 3 strands of floss.
Lighten your spirit with this sweet hand embroidery quilt design.
This is a perfect way to decorate your home, add sweet charm to a nursery or make it into a gift for a friend who needs some cheer!
Make the design into the small quilt as shown or a pillow! It is very fast and easy to stitch up!

This picture really shows the quilting I did....I quilted on the muslin area, but not over the embroidery.

Here I added my nest basket that matched perfectly....I couldn't resist.
Now the lil quilt is in my dining room.

These are my violets outside my sweet and very much like a pansy.
I love the orange purple combo! (Walmart!)
I made a new coloring page....Get your happy on!
I love pansies....they are so delicate, small and HAPPY!
We had a cat named Pansy when I was mom said her little face was just like a pansy.
It has always been my favorite I really wanted to create some surface pattern designs with them and  make this coloring page. 
This is Great for anyone who loves to color! It could also be great stitched embroidery project. There are no instructions however...just the page shown above. My signature will be at the bottom of the page. It prints on regular paper, 8 1/2" x 11".
Have a very Happy Tuesday!!!
