Apron Giveaway Winner!

Ruth from Farm Girl in My Heart is the apron giveaway winner!

Molly Monkey Twins

I've been very busy on the crafty front.

1. I managed to get two more Molly Monkeys out of that old pair of pants! (I think there may be one more too, if I play my scraps right!) Boy if the third time isn't the charm! The blue one has a weird pucker on the side, but the orange one came out perfectly! I am loving orange and turquoise right now. Especially since those are the original Lady Monkey colors.

2. Last week my friend Kat came over for another series of crafty play dates. This time Kat is trying to spruce up her apartment while on a super tight budget. We went down to The $2LB Loft and bought some really nice fabric to recover her couch cushions with. They are looking really nice and I can't wait to see the results!

3. I started a real I Spy quilt this weekend for a special little girl at church who is having surgery on her spine. I am super please with how it's coming together. All my previous experience is paying off.

4. Oh, and I started a spray paint project this weekend too. I found the *perfect* shade of green. It's called RustOleum American Accents "Sea Side Green." It is the exact shade of the chairs at the Fairfax Farmer's Market that I have admired for years. It is just a smidge darker than Jadite.

So, lots to show in a few days!

I love the latest Mollys! Super cute and the craftmanship looks great. It really makes me wish my craft room was properly set up but it's getting there.

Thank you for the giveaway. I'm so excited I won!!!

I can't wait to see your spray paint project. I love the little monkeys.
How sweet of you to make that little girl a quilt. She will treasure it forever.
