At the end of February I turned another year older. I was pleasantly surprised to received these truly beautiful 100 Peruvian Lillies in an array of glorious colors. My son Shane, Jenny and my grand daughter Chloe had them over night expressed to me from sunny California and they arrived here in very very cold Michigan day. They are still blooming and they warm my heart and bring a big smile to my face everytime I look at them. Thank you Shane, Jenny and Chloe. I love you all.
Recently, My sweetie took us on a get away weekend to the Lansing area so I could visit some of my favorite shops. My most special shop is called Yards Of Fabric. Jeanne carries very unique fabric and laces for crazy quilters. I especially loved this years fabric line by Northcott, Quest For a Cure, called "Rose Garden Tea For Two. It is truly beautiful. All of the fabrics and lace I bought will be going into "The Crazy Quilt Of My Dreams" which I plan to get back to piecing soon.
Also at Yards of Fabric, I bought some lovely hand dyed silk ribbon by YLI. Jeanne also showed me this wonderful new creation called "Sweetheart Rose Maker" by Clover!! It works on the same concept as the other Yo Yo makers. I plan to create heaps of rose from it. They come in three sizes and I bought the smallest one which creates a 4 cm wee rose.
Also at "Yards Of Fabric, I discovered the new fabric line called "Flower Faires" based on Cicely Mary Barker fairies. They come in several colorways. This one is called Periwinkle. Wouldn't they make wonderful silkies for Crazy Quilts? vbg
