Hello Everyone, I am so excited to participate in Selfish Sewing Week Spring 2015. Today I am sharing with you my new shirt made by me out of quilting cotton! You see I have never made myself any garments and have been intimidated by the thought. For 2 years I have listed one as a goal to complete a garment for myself, goal met! Hoot hoot! Years ago, I tried to make a shirt and ended up throwing it away half cutout. All the little markings confused me then. But with a wee bit of help I actually sewed it up pretty easily (patting myself on the back)!

If you are looking for the April Showers Blog Hop Giveaway it is HERE When Rachael @ imagine gnats posted about Covert Robin signups. I just could not help myself, I had to try it! I am so happy I did. Thank you Rachael and all the others who put this great swap together. Theresa Seykora @ Around The Home Adventures was my Covert Robin and I still cannot believe the amazing gifts. I have tried to look at her online presence but she has no blog I can find. So I will say this here! She is wonderful, thoughtful and very talented. I feel very honored to be on the receiving end. I look at the items and instantly "Happy". Thank you Theresa! I have already used my new library bag and everyone here loved your GS cookies. I should have hid those! If you know my crazy household, you know my refrigerator is covered in school calendars, photographs, and art created by my children from over the last 27 years. I always need magnets (how did she find that out)? They match

I have signed up for: I am working on a pouch for my partner in the Modern Scrappy Bits Swap . I am using Perle Cotton to outline the boxes on both the front and the back of the pouch. Having never done this before it is a mystery how it will turn out but I do like the colors. Pairing Robert Kaufman, Kona Solid " Coal " and a mini charm of V and Co., " Simply Color " makes for a bright and happy pouch.. Here "In The Boon Docks", it is very cold and windy! A good day to stay inside and sew! Thank you for stopping by and please consider signing up at Rachael's Imagine Gnats for The Covert Robin . The link will take you right to her door to find out more. Enjoy your day! Lisa
