Guest Post at Sew Can She

It's finally time to let that cat out of the bag!


Do you know how hard it is for me to keep a secret?!!

How exciting!  Back in March, I was invited to write a guest post at Caroline's Sew Can She blog.  If you don't already know, Caroline shares free daily sewing tutorials.  Her blog boasts of an incredible archive of sewing tips and quilting projects.






This Sweet Watermelon Table Runner has been completed for a while now, but I had to hold off on revealing it until now.  I am sharing the free pattern as today's featured tutorial.


Didn't I warn you that those Equilateral Triangles were addictive?!!


I consider Caroline to be my number one source for all things sewn.  She's friendly, fun and such a wonderful fountain of inspiration!  She recently authored an incredible new sewing project book, Just for You, coming this fall!  And now she is planning and sharing a dream getaway sewing retreat!!!


Please show Caroline some Sew Fresh love.  Drop in to read my guest post.  And while you're there, make yourself at home and check out all the practical information and inspiring projects she offers!




Keep On Quilting On!

Sunday Stash

Happy mail....

How can you not "Have a Happy Scrappy Day" when you receive happy mail?




From my good friend, Lisa of Port Hope.
This delectable selection was offered in her Happy Birthday to Me and You giveaway.

THANK YOU, Lisa!








I have no idea what to make with these.........   Yet!




What a fitting set up to show off some other Happy Mail that arrived the same day!




I am now an official member of the Modern Quilt Guild.  I noticed that Lisa was displaying the MQG badge on her site, so I made some inquiries.  She kindly explained that even if you don't have a guild nearby, you can still sign up as an individual member.  So I did!


From: Port Hope, ON To: Listowel, ON

Lisa, in Port Hope, (Ontario, Canada) and I, just west of Listowel, live 250 km apart.
This is estimated to be a 3 hours drive.
To meet in the middle would result in us each driving to Toronto.


And while in Toronto.......
It would only be fitting for us to drop in to the Sew Sisters Quilt Shop!
How would you like to have some of this bright happy?



Come back HERE Tuesday to enter the Sew Sister's Quilt Shop GIVEAWAY!
Perhaps you will be receiving some Happy Mail, too!



Linking up with Molli Sparkles for Sunday Stash!



Keep On Quilting On!
