fUn DaY!!

Instead of working on projects that have some sort of deadline, I PLaYeD today in my studio!!
I made some Valentine's Day ornaments or gift toppers.
I do plan on having a tutorial for them, although I know you can probably figure them out on your own, they are very simple.
My secret sister from last quarter, Tina, wanted to do a Spring Cottage swap and I was game!!
We decided to swap three cottages made from Nanette's infamous Christmas Cottage Tutorial made in the colors of spring. I tell you, these cottages are so addicting and so fun to make for every season!! I know I'll be doing one for Halloween, so heads up!
I had so much fun selecting fabrics since I don't usually use pastels, but I'm enchanted with the idea of a Spring Cottage Quilt!
I also prepared a primitive flower applique for my Calendar Quilt. I'll post pics of that when I'm done applying it.
Have a creative day!

You amaze me. I wanted to do a spring something - but no time. I'm glad you are doing it so I can see yours. It gives me hope for spring on this snowy day.
