Swan Princess - Sugar

 Sugar as Swan Princess is from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I love these Sugar and Spice Girls because they remind me so much of my grand daughters.  Each one has their own little personality.   We are also here today with Inspirational Monday.  I had lots of fun coloring this and using some more of my pearls.

I hope it inspires you too, so get out your paper, coloring tools, digis or stamps.  The challenge at Little Miss Muffet is #37 Loads of Layers.  You can count, but I think I used 7 layers on this card.  So what are you waiting for?????  Get yourself a Little Miss Muffet image or not...and come join in on the fun!

Close up of Swan Princess:

Farmer's Wife Quilt Blocks

 We are back today with my Farmer's Wife Quilt Blocks and Flowers and a Quilt Show.  Just needed to do something light and fun.   I had seen a baby quilt with strips and one row of something across the top 
and thought that it would be fun to use my FWQB.  I am not to sure I like it as much as I thought I would.  But it is still light and fun....  I love the 1930 prints.

The next two quilts are some OLD UFO's that are finally finished!
This is an applique quilt I pieced about 14 years ago.  Believe it or not the top has been hanging in my closet waiting to be quilts all this time.

 Then about 3 years ago I was looking for a change.   
Something fast and I wanted to use a jelly roll.
This is what came from it....

My girls came over to play today, so I got them to hold up my quilts outside, 
so there would be plenty of light. 
Please enjoy.....
