HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Lucky me, we're spending the day in Buffalo
with Alyssa & Meagan! 

Rather than posting my usual LIVE Studio update,  
today I'm sharing inspiration for an upcoming project 
that not only captures my desire to fabricate, 
but appeals to my love of all things cozy & sweet.

Inspiration struck when I found a coverlet on Pinterest.
While the instructions are in Japanese, 
the pictures spell out the process so clearly that 
you don't need to read anything to  
 make a pile of these flowers. 
Still, I found another flower tutorial 
by Pink Paper Peppermints 
and wanted to include it as well.
Either link below should have you whipping up 
scrappy fabric flowers in no time!     

Finished

for sewing together into a sweet coverlet.

Perhaps a smaller scale project is your speed.
How about a cheery garland strung over your head board 
or across an open shelf? Napkin rings. Gift toppers. 
An endless list of adorable uses.

I will keep you posted on my own progress right here.
Until then, enjoy this wonderful day with 
the ones you love, and stitch on!
