Elf Donuts!

What a great idea! I'm on the hunt for candies that would look good on gingerbread houses.
This would be a perfect addition!

A Gift for Your Pastor - Day 2

In case you're wondering, clergy stoles are worn by ordained pastors in many Protestant denominations. In some churches the colors are determined by the season, for example white stoles are worn at Christmas. 
See the entire stole collection at: Shadrachs
(P.S. I appreciate social media love. Thanks.)

A Gift for Your Pastor

Here's my latest clergy stole: red shot cottons from a package of 16 fat eighths that I bought at the quilt show in Houston. This stole was pieced on a foundation. The back is red Kona cotton. The length from the back of the neck to the bottom is 54" (total 108" end to end). 
See all 70 clergy stoles at SHADRACH'S.

Global Textiles and Gifts from More Love Mama

Carrie Wood in Houston, Texas offers some of the prettiest global textiles out there. Take a look at the Java print above. The selvage says "Veritable Super Java." So you know it's good, haha. I've been searching for (and collecting) interesting African fabrics for years and Carrie's Etsy shop More Love Mama is one of the best. You can even choose 5 of your favorite fabrics in her shop and she'll sell you a custom made package of fat quarters. Carrie is mom to 6 adopted kids from all over the world too. Visit her shop and say hi. 

The Australian fabric shown above is called Bambillah.

Mayleen Vinson's Fabulous Selvage Star Quilt

This stunning selvage star quilt is the creation of Mayleen Vinson in Kansas. 
See her blog post here: Q is for Quilt
It was on exhibit in Houston at the recent Quilt Festival. 
I love how the red and green solid color fabrics lend some 1800's charm. 
A very wonderful quilt! Nice work, Mayleen!
