Day 7…a hat for you, Angel Love Art Quilt for my Mom

First – odds were pretty good on our post for Bows and Blossoms and their wonderful giveaway for this adorable hat.

If you missed out on this - you can still visit Bows and Blossoms - great prices plus free shipping!

Our lovely random number generator – and Deb – this little lovely is all yours.  An email is on its way to you for your mailing address.  Thanks so much to all who entered and visited Suann at Bows and Blossoms.

Don’t forget – there is still a few days left to win this from me over at Where Women Create

This prize package being offered at Where Women Create includes an owl tote, an ipod accessory bag, a handpainted owl pin and a Hazel Hipster pattern.

Second, today my plan was to do nothing.  So I wandered down to my sewing room after church today to do some nothing and got this made.  This is on its way to the winner from my Sew, Mama, Sew giveaway.

And then I got around to making my Mom her Christmas gift.  One of them at least.  I wanted to make an art quilt wall hanging.  My first attempt – I was happy with how it turned out.  I found a bag of old lace and stuff in my craft box from my high school crafting days and loved some of the vintage findings in there.  I have a whole big bag of really old lace.  So cool.

hung on a little branch from our apple tree...

I used fabric scraps, old vintage lace, ribbon, yarn, buttons, beads and a piece of vellum.  I set it all on a piece of fusible fleece interfacing first to act as a glue for the base and then kept adding things on top.  Then I did a variety of stitches – kind of like a crazy quilt – all over the place.

For a first attempt, I’m pretty happy with it and I know my Mother will love it ‘cuz she’s my Mom and its like hanging my drawings on the refrigerator – she always loves what I make for her.
