Show Your Wings



I'm sew excited to be able to share a story about my wings with you today!


This is my Little Dragon wall hanging. It was so much fun to make! I chose to make the smaller version. And backed it with this feather print I made myself on Spoonflower 100 years ago. And I added corner tabs for hanging.

















"Little Dragon" quilted wall hanging
finished at 20" x 27"



labels
ordered from Ikaprint.






The Little Dragon pattern is now available in my shop here.

The block finishes at 23" x 16" OR 46" or 32", plus border.








Today is the one year anniversary of moving into my new home and life. It has been a challenging year. But I am very, very happy. Thanks to all of my friends for the love and support!!!!



Little Dragon represents the new and improved 2019 me.

  • bold
  • fiery
  • adorable
  • prickly
  • edgy
  • rugged
  • free to fly

It is quite likely, that I will be at this very moment, facing the ex in our settlement meeting today. Writing this post was perfect timing because, in preparation, I really need to concentrate on channeling my inner little dragon. 



Please take a moment to visit all of the other bloggers on this fantastic hop!

Let's Bee Social #261

Welcome to the Let's Bee Social!


 

 Okay so I no longer have a handle on my week or my life. But this is the new me, and this is how I roll now. Here is your first ever Let's Bee Social on a Monday. 






There is one thing I would like to address right away today.....


Yes, there has also been a lot of SEWING!!!!! 



On February 6th Molli Sparkles made this post on Instagram. He had this beautiful unfinished piece he had rediscovered and wondered what to do with it.







And I was like, "Girlfriend!!! Yaassss! Let's do a quilty exchange!"


That was it. Molli and I had decided to each make something to send and exchanged addresses by email.

For those of you who have never had the pleasure, this is Molli Sparkles a.k.a. the uber talented Joshua Helms.





Molli and I have been quilting blogging buddies since a way long time. Although we have never met, I consider us to be friends.

Now what do you make as a return gift? Hmmmmm.
Molli Sparkles also has a flair for quilt pattern design. So why not make something using one of his own patterns?!!!!

It was decided and I asked if I could purchase a copy of his "Don't Be A Dick" pattern. Turns out that when Craftsy shut down so many independent craft and quilting designers' shops, Molli's shop was one of them. So now you can visit his NEW PayHip Pattern Shop HERE!




I posted to Instagram and Facebook sharing my intentions and showing a rainbow fabric pull. But not everyone is impressed. Seems there are some who are easily offended by stick figure shapes if the body parts are genitalia.

So if you are against seeing drawings of, or fabric recreations of sexual organs please do not scroll down any further.



If you must unfollow, 
then please quietly unfollow.

#DONTBEADICK



If you feel a need to make a negative remark about my decision to post about this fabric creation representing penises, DON'T BOTHER.


This is my blog.
Which I started to: 
Post about my experiences,
Share what I am making,
Connect and make friends with quilters from all over the world.


Molli is my friend.
I made that decision.











And have since shared this additional sneak peek.....




I'm not naturally drawn to purple but it is growing on me.




So if you are still here...... Lol!


I also had to deal with another issue this weekend.
I don't have access to the YouTube channel that was created "for me" but have since created a BRAND ACCOUNT APPROVED YouTube channel HERE.

Please click through to see MY first video production. It won't teach you a thing, but it is me and it is my studio. And please SUBSCRIBE!!!

MORE TO COME!!!!








Just wanted to share this news with you all!
I can't wait to see all the "wing" projects that will be showing up next week!
