In anticipation of the release of my "Verona" collection, (as well as my new blog), I want to find some clever contributors who will win free "Verona" fabric!  I would love to see your original designs for any fabric project~from a quilt to an apron.  The winning submission will receive "Verona" fabric with which to make their project.  The project will also be featured on my blog!  (This will be one of many chances to win fabric and contribute to my blog).  

ADDITIONALLY, just for submitting a project you will be entered into a drawing for free fat quarters from Riley Blake Designs.

back in the saddle...

I feel like I've been out of it for too long!  Between my daughter's MRSA infections, my bronchitis, Christmas, Reflections, etc. etc. I got a little behind on my blog and the projects that I have going on!  But, I think I'm back-- trying to get caught up on gifts that I want to make for little girls in my life.  Here is a picture of a doll that I finished las night.  She's pretty cute, but took quite a bit of time!
