Some good mixed in

March 19, 2012

We have pink eye.
Yep. Yuck is right. Thankfully the antibiotics are doing their job, and we are quickly on the mend.

But the bright side of that - is 48 hours forced to be at home, which means I've been getting a few projects done.



































I made this page a few days ago, still nursing my Studio Calico March kit, Story Hour. I added a few things from my stash - some SMASH paper pad pieces. I'm super excited for the new stuff to come out, especially this tape.
I know Cassie, at Paper Issues has ordered the new SMASH, it should be arriving soon. 
Another thing I wanted to share, because you are a reader of my blog, Cassie has given me a discount code to share with you, and it don't expire!
So to save 20% on your entire order at the Paper Issues Shop, use the code HOLLYH.
Cassie is getting in new releases almost daily, and she ships SUPER fast!
There's a link in my sidebar with my discount code - or you can visit the shop HERE.

Finally, one last project to share today. I bought the majority of this fabric last summer, when my in-laws were visiting and I was planning a big king sized quilt for our bed. Ryan and I found a different bed spread we liked better, so the fabric got put away in my craft closet. 

A couple weeks ago, I discovered I had enough to make a throw sized quilt in the closet and started working on it. I used this pattern my Cluck,Cluck, Sew called Easy Bake.


I really like her patterns, this is the second one I've purchased and the instructions and illustrations are very clear. I would recommend this for a beginning quilter, just straight lines and straight cuts.

This make two quilt tops that are finished. Now I just need to get motivated to finished the backing and binding. That part is the less fun part - but unfortunately, required :)

I hope you're having a wonderful start to your week.

XOXO,
Holly & CO.
