My Own QR Code!

Yup, if you have a QR code reader app on your iphone or tablet, take a look. It goes here. A few years ago, this post wouldn't have made any sense at all. You can read about QR codes here.
I got this on Fiverr for $5 (of course) from countd in Serbia. It took just one day.
I bought some other cool stuff on Fiverr too, I'll show you soon.

Upcycle Quilt from California

Faye Roberts from Northern California made this wonderful Upcycle quilt! She says making these blocks is a lot like eating potato chips, you can't eat just one. She did wavy line quilting in the sashing and she tied the centers of the blocks with embroidery floss. Her blocks look like little crazy quilts.
Nice job, Faye!

Can You Believe It? Selvage Shoes!

Yes, selvage shoes! These were a gift to Melinda from Tina. They both work at Tiny Stitches, a quilt shop in Marietta, Georgia. See Melinda's post: Melinda Quilts.
They were a big hit at her recent guild meeting!

Quilt by Maria Shell

Oh this looks like so much fun! It makes me want to run to my sewing machine and get busy.
(Most things make me want to do that, but still.) This quilt by Maria Shell of Anchorage, Alaska is called "Treasure Map" and it measures 29" x 29." Nice color mix and improv lines. Yayy, Maria!

More Gingerbread Houses!

I think this is one of the prettiest gingerbread houses I've ever seen! From Vroman's

From Sweetopia, above and below. Marian shows how to make icing. Click the link for more.

This house was featured in the Maryland Pennysaver magazine. I especially like the almond roof and the jelly bean chimney. 

This looks like so much fun!
