Quilting on the Go

I am so excited about the new quilting book, Quilting on the Go by Jessica Alexandrakis. Who knew you could quilt on the go? I can barely walk and chew gum at the same time! 

Quilting on the Go offers several projects you can literally do on the go. It is a wonderful resource for portable patchwork. The book offers step-by-step instructions and patterns for 20 projects. 

I am not a quilter but this book makes it so easy that even I can do it! No kidding! Easy to follow steps, great pictures, awesome tips. 

The book will not be available for purchase until June 11th but guess what...thanks to the awesome people at Potter Craft and Crown Publishing,  I have an advance copy and I want to give it to you! Yep, you, cute face! 

Here's what you need to do, leave a comment and tell me your summer plans. That's it. Just one comment per person, please. The winner will be announced next Thursday, June 6th.

We Did It!

A very big huge honking thanks to everyone who donated to the heart walk. OMP and I hit our goal and even got a bit more!

There were so many people there! Everyone in the crowd was super upbeat and supportive.

I am so glad that we did the walk and I plan on doing it next year. The best part of the walk was that I had OMP with me! He is my inspiration.

Queen of Everything

Mother's Day is this weekend but you still have time to show your mom that she is the queen of everything by making these AWESOME crowns. I think I need to make one for myself and for the pups, cause really, they are the queens of everything, and then some...
