101 Patchwork Projects and Quilts!!

It's here!  I'm so excited to have a little project in this big magazine!  I made nametags for Amanda's retreat last fall that turned out pretty darn cute.  I had a tutorial on my blog for about 5 minutes when Penny suggested that I submit the project for this issue.  She has an awesome vase in this issue as well! 

So glad she suggested it as I would never have thought to, and I must say it is very cool seeing a project of mine in  a magazine!!!  And my husband's words were, "Look at that, I'm in a magazine!"  I love that Drew, my mom and mother-in-law were the featured tags!  And ready for gifting too!
Here's a few of the tags that did not make the cut, but are nonetheless ready to be tied to a gift too!

And the newest batch with a ticker tape twist ready for the retreat with Penny in less than two weeks!!  I am so lucky in my crafty friends--blogging and otherwise.  This group is going to be so much fun!
Here are a couple of the little projects for the gifts bags!  Aren't those dresden pin cushions so cute?   It was Amanda's idea--her choice of colors is just perfect! And I love the key chains!  So quick and easy!
And a few oilcloth covered grid paper sketch pads.  I love these too!  Can't wait to start coloring in mine!

Have a happy week!
