A little sewing to start the year...

Hello 2011!!! I know it's 4 days later...but I've been busy stitching. ;)

When my beautiful friend Janelle's fabulous book "Pieces of Me" came out last year as soon as I saw the fabric buckets on the cover I knew I had to make them!! I've had the fabric all cut out and ready to go for a couple of months now but it kept getting put on the backburner with all the end of year scrapping commitments, festivities and things. So...new year's day I finally sat down and started stitching. I haven't done applique before but it all came together so easily...and I'm thrilled with how they turned out!

Thanks so much Janelle for making your patterns so easy to follow! :))

How cute are those houses and trees!! My buckets are now looking so lovely on the shelves in my scraproom. They make me happy! :D

If you haven't seen Janelle's book before you really need to check it out HERE. You'll LOVE it!!

Now that I've got the sewing bug I'm trying to decide on what to make next! :)
