I love a squishy package..

The linen is here! So happy with the look and feel of it.  And the spots. :)  I have never quilted with linen before.. it's so beautiful in look and feel, I'm a little afraid to cut into it.  I think my MIL will love it.  I can't show you much of what I've been sewing for her yet but here's a pic of the fabrics..

I may become a linen lover after this!

And a little side project.. I was playing around with making a blog button and couldn't get the code to work.  I had previously used some code I copied from a blog tutorial but for some reason could NOT get it to work this time.  After several tries, I found the easiest site ever that generates the code for you so all you have to do is copy and paste.

It's called Grab My Button Code Generator.  So easy and fun.  You just need the URL of your stored image that you're using, your blog URL and your blog name.  Here is the button I was playing around with.. and the grab box version is in the top left of my side bar. If you try that site, let me know how it works for you.  It really is super easy. :)

Also have been doodling a design on some graph paper.  But not a lot of sewing got done this week.. turned out to be a busy week, and is looking to be a busy weekend as well.  I think I'll be able to work on my MIL's quilt top a little today, though.. fingers crossed.

Happy Saturday and Happy Sewing!


p.s. I added a quilt to my Favorite Quilts page.. it's London 2012 by Nanette over at Freda's Hive.  Click on the tab at the top and have a look.  It's one of my favorites of ALL.TIME.  So amazing.  Thanks for letting me post it there, Nanette!!


Love the pretty fabrics in your mil's quilt! I use that site for my codes and it is super easy! :)

I can't wait to see this quilt! I love your new button and the London quilt is amazing!

Oh I do like a good linen!

When you first mentioned the button, I thought you wanted one where you could grab the code afterwards, which I could have sent you, but glad you're sorted (actually I could have sent you an e-mail on this too, I've sent the destructions to several people :oD )

Oh Kelli, you are right, that London quilt is spectacular! Have fun working with your linen fabrics, I enjoyed using some for upholstering a chair, and the fabric was so soft and lovely to work with. I'll be watching to see how you go with piecing it.
