Rainy Friday

It is a yucky rainy Friday here in PA. I find it so hard to be creative when the weather is dark and dreary so I guess it is lucky that I have to work today. So here is a little something to brighten mine and your day - 

I just found out that a friend of mine is having a baby girl! I am so excited for her. I am especially excited that I get to make another baby quilt. I am going to use my "Red Letter Day" by Lizzy House fabrics. The ducks are my favorite! And you never know..I might work in a couple of my HR Far, Far, Away fabrics too. Cant wait to get started.

Happy E-mail

After a long day at work (I only work part-time so this is kinda a joke) I came home and opened up my e-mail. If you are a crafter like then I am sure you subscribe to all sorts of crafty/fabric e-mail news letters. One of my favorites is the fabric shopper. Each day I get a e-mail featuring a new fabric. I was so happy today when I saw this - 

The fabric is Senor Burrito by Alexander Henry. I LOVE IT!!! I can't decide which colorway to go with so I might have to order some of each.....hope the hubby is not reading this!

Happy Fabric Friday

I have been collecting Orange & White fabric for my next quilt. Me and my husband grew up in Knoxville, TN and my husband went to the University of TN, so by law we have to own a Orange & White quilt. I just received this new fabric in the mail on Thursday. Don't you just love opening up your mailbox and having it filled with yummy fabrics!!!! These are all from Amy Butler and of course the full moon dots will make it into the quilt. I also think the Orange & Aqua might make it into the quilt too. Can't wait to get started - but I must finish all of my other projects first!

Starting New

As you can see, I have started a new blog! I am very excited about all new things I am going to start posting. You can see I have also changed the name of my blog to Sunshine Girl. Why Sunshine girl? One reason is my hubby always calls me sunshine and for those of you who know me, know that I love being out in the sunshine!

I will also be opening my Etsy shop in a couple of weeks and for the opening I plan to give away one of my Buttercup bags!

So please be patient with my while change my blog over (it is more difficult than I thought it would be). I will leave you today with photo of a mini-quilt I started. I want to make a mini-quilt in each color to hang on the walls of my workroom. I started with yellow, not one of my favorite colors, but I love how it turned out. Can't wait to start working on the other ones!

I hope everybody enjoys my new blog!
