Kitchen stitching

This week I wrapped up another scrappy bit of sewing for my kitchen. It's one of those projects that once you finish, you ask why it took you so long to get around to it. ;o)

WIP Wednesday - Tiny Hearts

I'm entertaining all sorts of heart themed projects at the moment, including one fashioned from tiny hearts I've fused onto linen.  It seems that I want to MAKE all the fun ideas that pop into my head. ;o)

Sometimes I surprise myself when an idea works out so well...if you look close, you'll see that a few of the hearts within the heart have tiny hearts printed on them.  Can't wait to work some more on this idea and hope you're finding time for a little creative fun in your day!

Heart beats

Big surprise! I couldn't resist using up more of my 1.5" scraps to stitch some colourful  Candy Heart blocks.  I mean, the red ones were so yummy and you know how much I love bright colours.  Honestly, it was only a matter of time before this happened. hee hee  Can I tell you, I'm seriously entertaining the idea of making a heart rainbow? Just because. ;o)

Hope your week has kicked off with some creative fun!  I'm juggling all sorts of fun projects at the moment and the hope is to have at least one finish by the end of the week to share.  Which is why I'm kinda thinking the rainbow heart idea needs to go on the back burner.  For the moment. ;o)

Better than candy

and every bit as irresistible, are the scrappy patchwork hearts I've been happily stitching up.

My block is based upon the charming, Emily Ann's Kloset PDF candyHEARTS quilt pattern.  Such a sweet design!

Virtual Fabric Play

Today* is the final day to enter the Vintage Rainbow mosaic contest over at Stitched in Color, hosted by Rachel and sponsored by Fabric Worm.  One of my favourite things to do, is to look at fabrics and play with different colour combinations, so it's no surprise that I couldn't resist the temptation to make a mosaic for this contest.  

A quick look at the palettes I had pinned from  Design Seeds onto this board ,  and I had found my inspiration for a fabric mosaic!  I'm calling this happy little rainbow of fabric, Vintage Pretty Bouquet. :o) 

Vintage Pretty Bouquet

Thanks so much to Rachel for her always inspiring mosaic contest themes and to Fabric Worm for sponsoring this fun fabric contest!

*You still have time to get in an entry (or two!) of your own before voting begins tomorrow.  Come join the fabric fun for a chance to win FQs of your mosaic choices.

Update as of January 27th... Wow!  What a wonderful surprise to be one of the two winners in the contest!  I'm over the moon, and want to not only thank Rachel and Fabricworm, but thanks to all who voted for my mosaic.  Thank you so much!!!
