It's Giveaway Day!

It is giveaway day!  I am so excited! Below are 3 giveaways you can enter.  The giveaways are open until the 25th.  Winners will be selected May 27th.  Good luck.

This weekend I took a little time to try a few things.  I set up a fun envelope challenge for our quilt guild which included these colors:

Our guild members have until July to complete the challenge - which could be either creating a 12 1/2" block inspired by these colors or else just making something fun for themselves with them.  I started sketching up some ideas this past week and came up with around 10 different blocks.  I fell in love with one of them and sat down to try it out.  I didn't measure or get too fussy, I just went for it.  What do you think?

I adore it!  It reminds me of: gummy worms, car trips, and summer!  It just makes me happy.  It doesn't meet the guidelines for the guild challenge with the baby blue incorporated.  I think I am going to make a few more of these squares and create at least a lap quilt out of these. 

The other thing I tried this weekend was ladybug nails!

My daughter's were thrilled!  I found the tutorial here:
I don't paint nails very often so I definitely need more practice but, oh the possibilities!!

Thanks for stopping by.
