The best sleep.... under a quilt!

Best-Sleep-Nine-Patch

Hi everyone!  I apologize for the past week's lack of blogging.  I have been with my sister and we've been enjoying happy moments together!  I have tried to work ahead on some things, so I do have something to share with you!  This is another sneak peek at the Aug 1 release from Our Daily Bread designs....Spool Tag Set and Pincushion Tag Set.  I used the sketch for this week's Shining the Light Challenge over at ODBD. This has long been one of my favorite go to sketches so I just had to play along.  I used Memento Cocoa ink and paperpieced my pincushion with the same dp from the card, which is K&Co Madeline and K&Co Marcella Lucy's Linen Deck.  The base is Papertrey dark chocolate, matted with SU! Blushing Bride.  I sewed each panel and sponged with Memento.  The pearls are ZVA Creative and the ribbon is May Arts Silk.

I hope you don't miss the release BLOG HOP on Aug 1-2, beginning on the ODBD Blog!!!  This is an absolutely fantastic release with LOTS of great sets, and lots of prizes!  You're gonna love them!

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Delicious Doodles - flourishes and bling, Inspire Me Fridays - always anything goes, Patties Creations - must include a stamped image - faux or real stitching, Phindy’s Place - diecuts, Polkadoodle -  anything you would find in an English garden, Sew Many Cards anything goes, Totally Papercrafts - bling, 4 Crafty Chicks - bling, Craft Us Crazy - anything goes, aper Shelter Challenge - #24 anything goes, All Sorts- Free and Easy,

Have a wonderful weekend~

Grace, enjoy your time with your sister, life just passes us by to quick not to enjoy family time.

Your new card is a stunner, just so pretty and it reminds me of my grandmother's handmade quilts.

O so beautiful. I love the pink and brown together. It's funny, I really don't remember seeing this color combination except in the last few years-and they go together soooo well. I love all the stiching-I haven't tried this yet, but it's in my to-do list. Thanks so much for sharing.
