Quilted Goodness

I have always had a soft spot for patchwork and quilted things. I love how the mix of colors and patterns come together to form one cohesive and diverse item.

Here are a few of my favorite patchwork goodies I found while perusing the internet, perfect for spicing up your home or wearing on your person:

Where you can get them:

My favorites of this bunch are the quilt and the tunic – But all of these items are so bright and fun and you just can’t help but smile when you look at them!

Craft Show Prep: Brooches

This weekend I gave my hands a break from cutting and sewing felt and instead worked on my brooch packaging.  I simply cut a rectangle from white and brown card stock, rounded the edges, stamped on my logo and pinned on my goodies!

Embroidered Brooches

Apple & Pumpkin Brooches

Amoeba & Paramecium Brooch

I also ordered some delicious mint twine last week from Bird Haven which arrived on Saturday!  I will be using it for various packaging things: attaching tags, DIY kits, decorating, etc.
