A few little peeks for you & wonderful giveaway goodies ~

I still just can believe this is my apron on the cover!! Sherry at Creations from My Heart emailed me to let me know that Stampington has the (apron-ology) cover posted on their website!! I just had to show you too....what a honor.....



Monday I had a little parcel in the mail from Dianne at Mamas Pocketbook ... I won a giveaway and just look at all the goodies she sent!! A Make Mine Pink catalog ~ a beautiful hand sewn business card holder (I really needed this!) ~ a gorgeous handmade card and last but not least the apron pattern that I actually won!! I love everything Dianne, thank you so much!!















I wanted to show you the sweetest birthday card from my friend Su in France!! She makes the most beautiful things ~ Su, thank you for your wonderful birthday wish and for such a precious card!!!





I actually created today!!! YAAAAY! And I'm even almost finished with the project....I'm working on my first art quilt to send in to be published...well, if it's OK it will be ~ you see, I've never made an art quilt. I do love to sew though and I do love art so maybe I can pull it off! Of course I had to use beautiful bird and nature images that I love ~ printed on fabric of course.....I just love the way they look on the fabric!






Just a little peek before it was completed.....


I tend to procrastinate when starting something that I've never done before. Do you do that? I know I've spoken about it before. I think that after I finally have the idea worked out in my mind on how I'm going to do the piece I can then get started. Sometimes the idea just doesn't come as quickly as I'd like!


Wishing you all a very happy Tuesday sweet friends ~
xxoo, Dawn

Diane said...

I have a feeling, a feeling in my bones, that THIS art quilt will find its way into a magazine for sure! It's beautiful already, Dawn! And so YOU!

Su's card is just darling and what nice pretty things in the giveaway you won.

And the cover of the magazine! I think you've had a happy day! :-))

Your latest project looks wonderful. I tend to procrastinate when I'm unsure of something, too. And, further, I tend to eat when I'm procrastinating. This is not a good thing. :D

All of your gifts and treasures are wonderful...now I'm off to have a closer look at that apron of yours!

I'm holding my breathing hoping that the art quilt will become a tutorial - that is one project that I would LOOOOOOOVE to work on.

It's bee-yoo-tee-ful!

I can be the Queen of Procrastinators when it comes to something I'm wanting to do very badly...fear of both failure and success!!!

Wow! Congratulations, Cover Girl! ;-)
And love the 'peek' at the quilt project... You made me feel so much better when I read that you, along with other 'commenters' of their have tendencies to procrastinate when working on projects. I now know I'm not the only one!!
Have a wonderful day, dear Dawn!

Fab as usual!!! Yes, I too tend to put off what I am not sure of myself in, like I am still holding on to the
bird theater! I am too scared to send it in! Maybe someday I will gain the courage to take wings and fly as you have done. Thanks for the inspiration!

Lori said...
