I want to thank you all for entering my giveaway. It is always fun to share my passion for creating fun fiber projects with you.

It has been are really hard month. My mom passed away recently. She was my dearest friend. She was instrumental in nurturing my creative spirit and taught me that there is nothing I cannot do if I try hard enough. She was an artist too. She was my muse and inspiration. I hope you understand that it was hard to chat with you about your all of the kind compliments you gave about my blog and my work. It was so nice to come home each day to meet so many new creative spirits.

I know that the Homespun people are so happy that you know a more about them. In reading the magazine, Its east ti see their dedication to sewers and crafters like us. Half way around the world there are women and men, striving to breathe new life into traditional art forms such as embroidery and quilting. Its a small world when we think of how much we are all alike.

I will soon be posting the next flower for the Summer Garden Pincushion and show you how to embroider a variety of leaf shapes. I will be dedicating this project to my mom. I know her joyous way of seeing the beauty in nature and in the way we express ourselves in the art we create will inspire us all as we work on our pretty pincushions.

I have some more exciting news to share!
DMC-Threads.com liked my Summer Garden Project so much, they featured it as one of their Mid-Summer Inspirations! I love their products and am happy to feature them in this project. I was stunned that they noticed my little blog and am grateful for their support. Life is full of surprises!

Well, I hope you are enjoying the last beautiful days of summer.
Thanks so much for joining in on my giveaway.

I'm so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I also feel that any talent I have came from my mother, and I'm sure you'll feel your mom's pride and approval as you continue to create.
