So that Spring will come early, let's all send good thoughts and vibes to Punxsutawney Phil of Ground Hog Day so he DOES NOT see his shadow! - lol. Yes. The bitter cold is getting to me and I don't want any more snow, nor biting temperatures!

Note to brag - but dang. I did good if I must say so myself. I have been working on this for the past week designing and sewing and having SO MUCH FUN! Craft Fancy gave me a challenge that was so inspirational and fun - I can't thank them enough! Oh how I love Claudine Hellmuth's Sticky Back Canvas and Hero art's stamps combined with fabric from my stash. I did buy the leaf fabric from Quilters Destination - a gem of a quilt shop just a hop skip and a jump from Craft Fancy. Gosh. Two amazing enabling stores in one area.

Anyways - I love this pattern so much - I have a *eep* Copyright Pending! Yes once the Copyright is approved, I will be selling it my Etsy shop! *does extreme happy dance* I am so excited. I love sewing. I am a frustrated Designer at heart - so me doing this... dang I have come a long way!

May I give you a little tour?? My tag along with 100% felt wool that was felted and sewn. Doesn't the amazing sticky back canvas and Hero Art's stamps just pop?


Fun little creatures greeting the little lady bug.

I hope you enjoy this THINK SPRING Banner as much as I had making it! Please let me know if you have questions! I envision many more creations of the Sticky Back Canvas kind. I mean - I still have to make my valentines! :) HUGS! Nan

Why I love Craft Fancy and Claudine's Gel Medium!

Oh Man. I ADORE Claudine Hellmuth's Matte Gel Medium. Will you look at this wonder medium? I mean... you can use it to adhere rubon's onto FABRIC! I made this pouch for the fabulous craft store - Craft Fancy just in time for Valentines! The rubon is by Heidi Grace and it goes on so well to the fabric. Apply some Gel Medium and you can even wash it in the delicates!

I am so excited because I love playing with fabric, Claudine's products and making " mini displays" for Craft Fancy. Next "mini display" will be on Claudine's STICKY BACK CANVAS!!! *does Happy Dance* Stay tuned peeps! HUGS Nan

on Earth is finally DONE. Just have to glue on the Star. It was a REALLY fun project and extremely inspirational.

But as you can see... the resident Diva (lookie pinky nails!) is not impressed.

Off to bed and dream of fun sewing projects! Hugs! Nan

Oh yes we will. Aren't they gorgeous? These pretties and a fluffy wool stuffing was waiting for me when I came home from a crazy busy day. Me was a happy girly. :)

Aine had to check it out too...

Even tried her mouth at wet felting. Which...funnily enough she did GOOD.

however, we failed at wool knitting. pity. NOT.

We are off to finish up some work and CRAFT! Nan and Aine..
