Week of Happy…..Day Four


Week of Happy…..Day Four

Welcome to Day Four of the Week of Happy. If you are just hitting the Blue Nickel this week, then you need to check out this post to see what’s going on, but if you have been here all week, then you know the score.  It’s all about Happy around here this week.


When I was passing by the Dear Stella booth at Quilt Market last spring, I saw Woodwinked all lined up in a row of pillows, and I totally fell in love with the deer in this line (yes, I know I lamented the deer that frequent my yard in yesterday’s post) and again I thought it was so pretty. I commented to the gals sitting there about how terrific it was and they gave me a fat quarter pack to play with!  I hadn’t noticed the owls or the mushrooms at first, but discovered them in the mix. Too cool!



So I made stuff with it even! Here’s another of those cool little wallets designed by Valori.


And more of those little treat bags designed by Monica.


Since I only have Fat Quarters of this line, I will be working them in with other prints down the road, and I am sure they will play together very nicely.

So to win either Monday’s Chronicle Book prize or my surprise pile-up from tomorrow’s post, simply comment here about something or someone or some event that makes or will make or has made you happy lately. And to have more chances, comment on each and every Week of Happy post this week….including tomorrow’s.  It’s been super uplifting to me to hear all of your Happiness spilling over. If you are feeling a little worn down this week, read the comments. There is a lot of happy to be found out there.

Keep Sewing, Keep Happy!

    WOW! I love this fabric with the little owls. The little bags and the wallet is very cute.
    My friend came by the other day and we had a girl’s day out. We had lunch together and then went to the fabric store. What an awesome day of shopping! I bought tons of fabric and had a great time. It made me very happy.

    I love the owls. My husband makes me happy because he helps me with my projects like re potting heavy plants. I know he could care less. He was surprised to learn the plant came from his Great-great Grandmother. That got his attention.

    The mushrooms caught my eye first…too cute!
    I just got back from Florida; went to visit my 89 yr old mom. Changes happening there that make me sad, but it was fun this time around because one of my kids with 5 of my grandkids came with me! Fun to see the little ones experience ocean waves for the first time and walk the beach collecting shells…it was a great time! Happy!

    Last night we got some super happy news! The store my hubby works at is going to be closed for a full remodel on August 2 until mid-November and we didn’t know what was going to happen with his job, last night his boss told him he was one of the people chosen to reopen the store in November and that he would be placed in another store until the reopening.

    I am happy to have such super friends in my life. I have met some wonderful women along the way that I am blessed to call my friends. They uplift me in so many ways.

    I am happy to have such a wonderful and supportive family in my life. In this world where isolation seems to be the more of the norm, I have such wonderful jewels that complete the fabric of my life…. my family and friends.

    The little owl bags are so incredibly cute. i am very happy because last week my husband found a tiny fabric shop in a town about 25 minutes away from us. It really is tiny but at last I have the opportunity to see and feel the fabrics in person, I have to do it all online and sometimes the colour isn’t the way it looked on screen.
