good to be back home xo




starting to feel settled back into HOME...part of me wants a MEXICO do over and part of me is happy to have my feet back on familiar ground...

got these planted yesterday and it felt so good to sprinkle a bit of color around here

i bought one meter of mexico fabric for 70 pesos [about $6]  in vallarta....it is a very thin cotton but i LOVE the print xo

and this was my big splurge for ME ~ wooden rainbow meditation beads...YES PLEASE I LOVE THEM

      
and for a sweet little baby girl who is arriving soon ~ i got started on a simple little quilt using  this sweet little 2 1/2"charm pack that i got at spring market from vanessa's booth xo

the requirements are super easy....there are 42 little charms so a 6x7 layout w 7 1/2" blocks makes a perfect size for baby 42''x 49"

u need 7 wof  7 1/2 " wide for the backround white and each wof provides the exact requirements for each row...6 - 5 1/2 x 7 1/2" and 6 - 5 1/2 x 2 1/2" ~ gotta love when this happens xo and i plan on a random layout with a quick finish ...

and then i got the diamonds for the star quilt pressed and trimmed as well

oh so satisfying and pretty -~ looking forward to a BIG finish on this one soon xo
so thankful for my love of sewing...always calms me and reminds me who i am xo
happy sunday xo pam
