some lovelies

i love when someone wants something made, hands me a bag of fabric and says....here you go!! i love when i get to make a project from scratch. it is so gratifying to NOT be looking at a pattern the whole time you are sewing. i will be making halloween aprons for the restaurant that my husbands grandma owns. so i will be working on those very soon....after all is is just around the corner....eeekk! until then.....
i also wanted to share a project i did using my apple fabric. if you followed me on my old blog you know how much i loved this fabrics.
so here is what i made with it

i think it turned out super cute! i already have people wanting them! can you blame them?? i must share these oh-so adorable fabrics that i just bought from Quilters Harvest http://www.quiltersharvestshop.com/ one of the best shops ever i might add! :)

just look at the all the cute little items apples, trees, pigs, bunnies, & koala's oh my!! it stole my heart! i need to find just the right project for these little cuties i dont want to use them carelessly! and i just finished 3 of these!

one in pink and two in yellow. they are so cuddly & warm! they will be up for sale in my shop soon http://www.thepolkadotgirl.etsy.com/ so keep an eye out. i want to share one last thing.

i heart my quilting friends......

ok so i have lots i want to share with yall, but i may have to save some of it for my next post yikes! fist i have to share a little bit about my quilting group.....we get together for what we call "cotton therapy" (i know right.....so cute!) as often as we can-- usually only 1 or 2 times a month. we work on what ever we want, sometimes do group projects, take fun little field trips, talk a bunch, and of course eat! i am super-super excited....we decided to start meeting every (yes, i said every) Wednesday for hand quilting! we all have very different tastes & styles....yet we all share the same love of quilting & the love of fabric! i have learned so much from all of these ladies lots about quilting & so much about life!! i love all of them so much and have become a better person because each of them are in my life. ok.....enough sap. so here are pictures of a few of the wonderful ladies!

of course there are more of us i just need to upload some photos.
ok on another note i am working really hard at trying to get new fantastic items ready for my shop here --------> http://www.thepolkadotgirl.etsy.com/ so be sure and stop in often to see whats new! i have been so inspired lately.....i just wish i could make stuff up as fast as ideas come to me. well i need to get some Zzzzzz's Night- Night! *h
