Say it with Flowers Blog Hop and Giveaway!!!


I'm so excited to be in the "Say it with Flowers Blog Hop"!!

I Love all the Blog Hops!! Thanks to Madame Samm for all the super fun Blog Hops!! I always see so many beautiful creations that inspire me!! Carol of "Just Let me Quilt" our wonderful host always inspires me. I was so honored when she asked me to create a puppy for her giveaway. She was so great at getting my creative juices flowing!! 



I love this fabric and wanted to create a new doll for summer, so Daisy was born!!



I make Bee's every year but I usually make them with two-toned yellow fabric and polka dot bow ties like the large Bee below. I decided to dig through my fabrics and see what florals I could use to make cute Bee's




I barely got this Bee Door doll finished. I found these appliqued flower pots on an old quilt top that had never been finished at a thrift store and wanted to save the pots that weren't falling apart. Here is one of my salvage ideas!!


June 4th is my oldest son Jr's birthday he is 22!! He is in the Army and stationed in Korea right now. So in honor of his birthday I will be giving away some Patriotic fabrics!! Just leave a comment and if you do Facebook leave a comment there also!!




Today is the last day on the Blog Hop!! Go check out all of the other creative ladies posting today!!

June 4th
