Spring Crafting

Sunday afternoon kept me quite busy the weather here in Califormia is still brisk don't do too much outside yet so decided to clean up my craft room. I am searching for fabric everywhere in the house so that was my first priority get the fabrics together so many tubs are now full with fabric galore. I did manage to keep one tub only for the different types of muslin I like to use. Muslin is the main staple for any fabric item I sew with me I like to use several types.Textures are important for the life of the fabric product it gives the real character.Sometimes plain muslin will work,more expensive means less imperfections,I like imperfections,onsaburg,batting anything with an oatmeal look really makes me happy.Now the fabric is neatly folded in tubs,guaranteed not for long late night madness will cause me to raise havoc looking for that perfect match for that perfect project.I separated my patterns all neatly in their place,put the finished products together on the wood shelf that my husband made for me,lined up the paints,even dusted my sewing machine-that probably won't work now that it is so clean and last hung up some favorite pictures that the grandchildren created from their little hands and feet.Precious pictures from my daughters that were created from Piggies and Paws Parties that they attended. This is a fantastic company which I am the proud owner of their products. I wanted to share with you my nicely cleaned space it will not look like this for long. If you noticed I took a picture of one of the walls in the room. I painted a large tree and every year I have the grandchildren stand tall so they can be measured. This is the family tree-I look up and see all the babie's names there along with their height and date makes me feel all warm inside.I wanted to make sure that my craft room has pictures of our family all generations including some of me when I was young while I am sitting at my sewing machine I can take a glance of the life that I came from and the life that is continuing knowing
My life is Blessed
One last thing those beautiful yellow and purple irises are from my garden along with some fern that grows in front of our home.My first blooms of the season. Spring is here HURRAY!

Hand made Fabric Bunny Giveaway

It is Sunday evening already the week just seemed to come to an end so quickly although a new one gets to begin- hurray for this. I heard it was the first day of spring today; here in California it was brought in by rain. I must admit I love the rain it does wonders for all my garden bulbs,refreshes the trees,and just puts put a new look on the lawn but so ready for sunshine and warmer days. I was in Mass today listening to the Priest as he reminded us about rebirth in our faith. I thought of spring and how the bulbs emerged from the ground sprouting into beautiful flowers faithfully each and every spring. This is what I want to accomplish in my life emerged with faith for every door that must close and a new one that opens I will be ready to take the challenge knowing I won't be alone.

Blogging with Others Just how do they Craft and Blog

Its been a while since I have put my words into my blog page just wondering where all the time goes. I must say I admire those bloggers that post everyday or maybe every other day how do they do it a question that I ponder on quite frequently. I start reading their blogs which takes me to another blog next thing I know hours have passed. This is a good thing for in a sense because those who are writing have not just put words into cyberspace you are being followed, read and dearly enjoyed. There are a couple of blogs that I want to include today Tip Junkie and Serendipity Chic Design
These two blog sites are fantastic each with their own style. Here I get lost for hours on end so I try to limit myself to late evening hours to catch up on their wonderful ideas and tips. Please take the time to go visit their blogs and sign up for their emails you won't regret this.
So where else have I been these past few weeks working at my day job as a customer service rep and into the wee hours of the morning sewing. Spring fever has biten me. First I thought these hot fevers were just menopause but nope I am scouring the web site for new bunny and spring patterns that grab me and I have found some great ones. I just finished up three new styles along with some wool felt eggs and bunny ornies created from that favorite fabric minky chennile. One week later 24 spring items were done. I have some pictures to share and they will be going on our web site soon for sale these that I just finished up were sold before I finished them so off to the local store here in our town for sale soon. But not to worry because they will be available on the web site also. I have the fever and plenty of night hours to make them. Make sure you take a look at our face book fan page for them since I have decided to have a giveaway with 1000 fans for one of the bunnies. I am going to let the posts make the decision which bunny will leave my house on its way to the winner. More details to come this week about the giveaway.
Hope all of you are enjoying the spring awakening in your home town breathe it all in- yes stop and smell the roses I am especially the freesias which are growing everywhere here at my house.
Glad you stopped by here to visit where you can find your country, primitive and whimsical fabric and wood products
Sincerely ♥ Rachel
