In the Leafy Treetops

Here it is, the latest finish, all quilted and bound.
I've washed it so it has that great crinkly quilt look to it.
The strip blocks are actually made from the left-over fabric from another (twin sized) project I am working on.

This is one where I love the back almost as much as the front. Definitely one to be reversible.
And this cute print that is in the strip in the back is where the name "In the Leafy Treetops" comes form. Do you know that song? I couldn't help but have that running through my head.

I am listing it for sale. I'm trying out a new online shop. Check it out!

Check it out....

I've set up a new online shop!
Strandz is on Zibbet

"Zibbet is a global marketplace, connecting buyers and sellers of Handmade Goods, Fine Art, Vintage Items and Crafting Supplies." Go take a look, and if you sell your work, you might want to look into setting up a shop too.

I recently worked with Dana from Lily Bean Designs.
She made me a banner for my shops, and some new buttons for my blog. Check them out. She was so fantastic to work with--great communication, quick turn around time, and she offers great pricing.. You can contact her through her blog.

Let me know what you think!

Some New Jewelry

Last week my niece Megan came to play for a few days. One of the days I made new necklace "drops" for both of us. They all can be added to any chain, and mixed and matched. I made a lot of sets, but I did take photo's of a few of them.

I'm thinking maybe I'll add some to my Shop in the near future.

Where has Summer Gone?

My kids started school today...

...and I can't stand it! Where did my summer go? I swear we just got in the summer groove, and it's gone!

Kyle is in 6th grade and Gracie is in 4th grade.

We've been busy and we've been having a good time.
We've been able to do a little camping the last couple of weekends. Lot's of playing cards, kids riding their bikes, reading, and just hanging out.

Tin Foil dinners is one of my favorite parts of camping.
I've also done a little sewing--here is the latest quilt top. Isn't she sweet?
I hope everyone has enjoyed their summer!

I finally got my Wonky Pinwheel (Tutorial here) quilt top put together and borders added. It is now in the "needs quilted" pile.
I'm also working on this Christmas Quilt top. It is mostly from the Figgy Pudding line, with a few extras thrown in for fun. I'm lovin' it. I love the red and aqua together!

I've also finished my quilt for DQS7. Here is a little peek. I hope my swap partner loves it!
