I know, I promised no more bird pictures but I've received several emails asking if I have any more so I thought I would share these with you. Here are the last "owl in the snow" pictures that Peter took on our property.

This owl is just spectacular! We are definitely going to frame these pictures.

Truly amazing!

Pretty in Pink

I designed Polkadots & Pinwheels using a Moda Layer Cake from the Three Sisters new collection, Aviary. This collection is so beautiful, I just loved working with it and I am sure you will too. Click on the picture to visit my website.

Pincushion Give-Away

I've decided to extend my Heart pincushion giveaway until next Friday, March 20th. Seems like my blog has been suffering from technical problems this week and some of you were having difficulty leaving a comment. The problems are fixed now, so if you would like to be entered to win my Heart pincushion all you have to do is leave a comment here or on the post below. I LOVE to read each one and your name could be drawn.

Something Special For You!

I have been working on my website and new designs for spring, but I always find a little time to check out some of the many blogs I love.

I was visiting
Moda's Bake shop and ModaLissa when I saw all the beautiful things made out of selvage. Sadly, I thought of all the selvage I have unthinkingly tossed away, never dreaming that I would regret it. I looked around my Studio and noticed the many Moda pre-cuts ... they all look so beautiful wrapped in their ribbon ... and I suddenly realized that all was not lost!

I have designed a lot of patterns with Layer Cakes and Jelly Rolls over the past couple of years. I just hate to throw out the pretty Moda ribbons so I have been stashing them in a jar. I pulled out a few, and here is the finished product!

I used my Homespun Hearts pincushion pattern and made two, so I'm going to share. Leave a comment on this post and I will do a draw for one of them on Saturday, March 14th.

Have a wonderful week!
