Hello Everyone,

It has been SO long since I have done a blog post!  Wow... October of last year!  Can you believe it?  I hope you can forgive me.  

Anyway, so much has been going on since October!  I launched my Feline Fine Fabric Collection that I created with my sweet little Quilt Inspectors in mind.  This collection was so fun to create and I love the colors too.  

Along with those fabrics, I also curated a new Aurifil Thread Collection to coordinate with it and with any project that you might have.  It is called Springtime Reflections.  It is an Aurifloss Thread collection.  Yup... embroidery floss!  How many of you love to do hand embroidery?  Have you ever used Aurifloss?  If you haven't you must try it for sure.

Here is a little project that I did with my fabric collection and the floss.  The fabric just lends itself to using the floss for sure. I used 3 strands of floss, a hoop, and just outlined the designs in my fabric.  Sweet and simple.  Really easy to turn this into a quick project to keep your hands busy and make something pretty.

But, you do know that I also use Aurifil thread to piece my quilts too!  Yup, 50 Aurifil thread went into all of the quilts that I designed around this fabric collection.  One fo the quilts, Pretty Kitty would be great to use the Aurifloss on too.  You can do a buttonhole or blanket stitch on the appliqué!  Perfect!!

And wouldn't the floss look great on these fabrics too??  I just love how it plays so nicely with my designs.  

Oh and yes... the fabric, floss, Quilt Inspectors book, and patterns are ALL available on my site simply by clicking here.  I hope you love everything as much as I do.

But wait, I did say that there is a giveaway... oh and maybe two!!!  I am doing one and also Aurifil is doing one on their blog too!  But I bet you want to know what I am giving away?  Well... the bundle includes:
