Good Wednesday Morning everyone!
First things, first!
I used to pick two winners from the 13 commenters for the pin give-a-way I posted yesterday.  I cannot figure out how to capture the image… so you’ll just have to trust me.  And since it’s my blog… well, it’s still my call!  LOL.  
Anyway—on to the winner of RED POSY:

Commenter #1 is DONNA! 

Thank you so much for commenting, and reading the blog.  It’s a blessing and honor to send it on to you. 
EnJOY~! Please contact me with your address, k?

Commenter #3 was Teresa in Music City! 

Love it that you are a ‘heart’ person!  Congrats!  Thank you – I’m singing “Mr. Bluebird songs” for you! 

But I am also singing songs of praise as I am so APPRECIATIVE of all you.  I am blessed to hear from all of you, contest or not!  And to those who asked questions about the techniques and processes I use to make these pins – I will work on that!  Thanks for asking!  I will gather some ‘stuff’ and take some pictures {hopefully soon} that will show the ideas I put into these pins.  

Sew… part of my Sunday Simpatico last Sunday… (I found out that is the proper spelling of simpatico through!)  Yay. Love spelling… but I like it with the Sympatico better!  Suits my creative interpretation, I guess!  Am thinking ‘symphony’ when I think of Sunday… and Sympatico – together!  Okay, that’s probably enough of that!

These are the “Jamaican” flowers I printed last summer… they didn’t make the cut for the postcards… so I decided to put them into some wonky patchwork.  I adore these colors.  They really do make me happy.  And I was craving some traditional piecing-patchwork.  And it felt good to use up some scraps and ‘floaters’ as I call them… those pieces that don’t have a HOME to belong to yet and are floating around my studio!!!

Some wild colors huh!  The borders are hand-dyed fabrics I purchased… I wished I had more of that purple green that is featured on two sides, but alas… that was the end of it when I cut it, so I went with what I had…

and now to decide what to quilt on it.  Those pretty little Jamaican flowers are begging for more attention!  

EnJOY the day!
