A story you must read

Hello, I have been busy working on some new things, and getting ready for my show this coming weekend.  My routine is to get up in the morning and after my husband and daughter get going on their day, I check my favorite blogs and then I dig in on the project of the day.  The other day I started reading one of my favorite blogs and I knew I had to share this blog.  She is Colleen/and Baby makes five.  You may already follow her but if you don't, she has been posting about her personal journey.  She was diagnosed with breast cancer.  If you have been through this or even if you haven't it is such an incredible story to read.  You'll find it here  This is part 1, she has also posted part 2, so be sure to read it too.

Her story really makes you think about what is really important.  So I will be thinking of her the next time I get frustrated because I'm not getting enough done for my next show! 

Thanks for stopping by to visit,

I won!

I actually won my first giveaway!!  Old Road Primitives held a surprise giveaway yesterday and I was lucky enough to reply in time to win!  I got my pick of any of her patterns, which wasn't easy!  Everything is adorable!  I love her new bunnies, but since my big shows are in the fall, I chose a cute little snowman in a mitten pattern.  I will post a picture of him when I get him done.  The link to her blog is
I am working on some things for a spring show in 2 weeks.  It's a small local show at our firehall.  I usually don't do spring shows anymore, but I thought, why not... plus my daughter has been wanting to do a show with me.  She is making friendship bracelets.  They are really cute and all her friends love them!  So it will be a fun weekend just hanging out with her.  I know I love doing the shows with my mom, so we are starting a new tradition!  I will try to get some pictures to post. 
Have a good day!
Happy Spring!

Updated Bunnies!

Have you ever made something and after you keep looking at it, you just know something isn't right?  Well I keep looking at these fabric bunnies and something was bothering me!  SO.. I ripped his little rusty wire whiskers out.. I promise he didn't feel a thing!  Then I threaded some embroidery thread through to make his whiskers soft, and I gave him some eyebrows and little line below his nose.  I added little tags to them too.  I like him much better now!  At least for now....
