Happy Stitch:30 Felt and Fabric Projects for Everyday by Jodie Rackley is a delightful book bursting with colourful and fun projects to make. Best of all, the projects can be easily constructed with felt, fabric, and floss - all you need is basic sewing skills, and you can be whipping up some modern and cheerful projects in next to no time!
 

The book includes a helpful section to get you started that explains the supplies you need and basic stitches and techniques used in the projects. Jodie also provides tips on how to personalise the projects to really make them your own. The book includes all the templates in the back, they do need to be enlarged. 


The projects are cute and whimsical and range from Gadget Cosies; Embroidered Totes; Pillow
Covers: Wearables; Softies; and many more. Many of the projects would make lovely handmade
gifts.  Some of the easier projects, such as the felt ornaments, would be perfect to inspire 
children and teach them a few sewing basics.

Macchiato ..Don't you will love one!





















Sweet Indulgence  ....It is official I have a fatal attraction with Starbucks!!  This my Daily treat!!  

Why I love it..here is why!

The delicious, multi-layered Macchiato begins with milk steamed until it's stretched and smooth to bring out its natural sweetness and is topped by a dense, creamy foam. Then rich espresso is poured over and through the foam, where it mixes with the milk and creates a brown mark on top. Finally, the barista signs their work of art with a sweet drizzle in a crosshatch pattern—making sure you get a little taste of that gooey goodness with every sip.

OMG!  what not to love!!

Poster Im creating

Hi Girls!
Some time ago I took a class with Jessica Sprague on Posters layouts...and finally I was able to put it in practice.  Our Team of Church leaders will be having a Women Retreat and i being playing a little with some posters for the event...

In my world poster should be eye catching and right to the point..I hate when I see posters with way to much information, as they distract me way to much from the real content...

Here are two on the Posters I just created, for this 2 posters I used Elements 10 and Many Layers Masks



Cheers,
Jackie 

look for more!
