 Yes, it's almost here...
I know you have been long awaiting, our Have A Latte Blog Hop. I can tell you the wait is just about over, and our bloggers are working away on some highly caffeinated projects to share.
Can't wait to see you there!

Here's our schedule.

In the mean time, I've been doing some pattern testing...
I can't share just yet...
But these colors sure have chased away those winter blues.

Tree Bird Blog Hop

It always makes me just a little bit sad, when another one of our wonderful blog hops comes to an end.
We've seen so many wonderful projects...inspiration abounds, and our dreams of spring are finally starting to come thru, in many places.
Thanks to Lana for stepping in and being a fabulous cheerleader.
When you hear those birds tweet tweeting... know they are thanking you too!
Madame Samm, it's always a pleasure. You inspire and motivate us daily.

Here's my last little Tree Bird project.
It was send off to Kim in a mug rug swap!
Bye-bye tweet birds!

I promised a give-a-way...

This cute little panel of mini prints!
And a few secrets too...

Today has picked #72.
Evelyn that is you!
I've sent you an email for your mailing address.
Your package will be coming thru the post office, as my carrier pigeon, just doesn't "seam" to have a grasp on his job just yet!  LOL!!!

Thank you all for your continued support, inspiration, and kind words!
You make this blogging community what it is today.
Your the best!

Keep on stitchin!

Birdy is the theme this time.
This adorable little guy from Kim, just shouts...springtime.
We all need a little of that in our lives here in the USA.

These little guys definitely will drive those "blues" away!
Yes, we were all just waiting for spring to appear...

Here is what I sent off to Kim!
 The little panel print is from the Tree Bird blog hop. 
Have you been following that the past week?
Loads of great projects to celebrate birds and keep spring time in our hearts.

Thursday, March 19, 2015 March???

It was nowhere near Christmas...

But what did appear...

A box brought by Fed EX,

Not a single reindeer!

I ripped open the package...

And what did I see?

But these gorgeous colors

It a spring time-like glee!

Oh yes they are fabrics

New fabrics you see...

And, Island Batik sent them to me... me me me!

You've likely not seem them,  just yet as you see

They are brand new for spring,  oh yippee, yes yippee.

Don't worry your heads though, cause they will soon appear...

As the new catalogue is coming and quilt shops will hear!


If you've not noticed already, there is a new button on my sidebar. Yes, "Island Batik" has so generously made me one of their Ambassador's this year.  What does this mean you ask?  Well, it means that you will get to see the latest and greatest from them, right here, with lots of ideas on projects using their fabulous batik fabrics.

I can't let the cat out of the bag just yet... but I did get a sneak peek at their new spring catalogue and it's gonna knock your socks off.

I was so excited with all the fabrics...
but this ones for me.

It just so Alaska...
and even if I'm not there, my heart is!

 I have a vision...

With all the solar activity and the gorgeous Northern Lights lately,
 I can't help but think about combining them...


We will see!

Thanks a million, Island Batik!

As for me, I'm playing catch up, from my vacation last week. Sorry it took a little longer than usual to post.

This month brings us Marcie!
Did you know...
She came on the scene on July 20, 1971.
She was the "bespectacled" character of the gang
Peppermint Patty's best friend, who referred to Peppermint Patty as "Sir"
and secretly likes Charlie Brown
Those were the days!

A big thanks to BeaQuilter
