Week of Happy…..Day Two

Week of Happy…..Day Two

Did you see yesterday’s post? It was the first Day of my Week of Happy series where I shared about my friend Amy Butler’s latest line Hapi.

Today’s post features a good friend of  Amy’s and mine, Valori Wells Kennedy, with whom I also just spent a magical week with (along with a whole lot of other incredible students and teachers!) in Sisters, Oregon. The fabric line is Quill and it came out a few months ago…Newer than Amy’s Hapi, but not as new as Valori’s NEWEST line Ashton Road.

Anyhow….I am working on a really fun project that is either going to go in a magazine OR become a Blue Nickel Studios pattern.  So I can’t show you that project yet, but I can show you the fabric.

And I can show you more of those little treat bags that I am so enamored with …..


Also, I made some of these little wallets that Valori designed out of Quill. Very fun project….


So that’s it for today’s Happy post….remember to make a comment about what makes you happy on one or all of the Happy posts this week to win that nice prize from Chronicle Books that I talked about in yesterday’s post.  Commenting on each day’s post DOES better your chances to win, so it’s worth it. Plus you have to think up a different reason to be Happy each day….Win, win, right?

    Finding the perfect pattern for my oldest granddaughter’s big girl quilt is what made me happy today. I love your little bags, they are so cute.

    I am happy today because, after being in the 90’s for a while, we got a downpour that cooled everything down.

    I was happy today because I found a ride to go to some medical treatments that I need to have done (I wasn’t sure if I could do them because I didn’t have a ride).

    Getting some more packing done today made me happy. Not the actual packing itself, but making progress. Progress always makes me happy.

    Today I am happy to have been able to visit my old neighborhood, see lots of friends there, and most especially see the 4 girls I used to nanny all grown up.

    Lots of beautiful eye candy! That always makes me happy, hehe. I traveled out of state to be with my sister who had shoulder surgery yesterday. Although she didn’t get much sleep last night, today her pain has decreased. She is happy! I was happy that I got to work on my embroidery project almost all day. I’m here to help my sister but I’m also taking advantage of this mini vacation to sit and stitch and get caught up with my little sis. This made me happy today!

    Awesome giveaway!

    I am happy because I get to spend a whole month with my Mom. I am helping her move so it is lots of work but it’s been years since we have spent more than a few days at a time together. Thank you for the chance to win a great prize package. Take care and God bless, Cory

    Those treat bags are yuber cute!
    Growing things on my property make me happy…be it vegetable or flowers or fruit. I’m hoping to get elderberries for the first time this year..there are a few blossom clusters on the plants anyway.

    Amy Butler fabrics make me happy. I love her prints and I have some of Valori Wells prints in my stash. I hate cutting into either but one day I know I will.

    I have had a happy week despite lots of issues. This week I took part in a ‘write 3 positive things for 5 days’ posting on Facebook and it really helped me focus on some good things each day. Sometimes it is good for us to actually think about what we are grateful for. Your little bags are just adorable.

    Your post made me happy today. I love your treat bags and the beautiful fabric! Had a great chance to do some hand sewing on a candle mat and that relaxed me.

    July 20, 2014 at 3:48 pm
  • I am happy that I have two wonderful daughters. Seeing all your treat bags makes me smile!
