Happy May!

I think the busyness of my life may be slowing down a wee bit!  I have finished up a good chunk of my orders, last Saturday was the last farmers market until October, and I have lots and lots of fresh ideas brewing in my brain.
One of my items that has been really popular are my quilted journal covers.
This was one of the last I did for an order:
The above picture is the front, and below is the back.....
Here is the entire cover.....
Do you see that ultra cute fabric in the *grass* that has flowers with black and white striped petals?  I won that fabric in a giveaway on the Jennifer Jangles blog.
Go and check out Jennifer's blog and the side tab has all the links to her Etsy shop, Flickr, and website.
She is an amazing ceramic artist who now designs really funky, fun lines of fabric.
This is the stack of fat quarters that I won:
I could only bear to cut off a strip to use for the grass on this journal.  I must get my hands on some more, then I wont be so possessive over these pieces!
Today I am trying my hand at stenciling on fabric.  Waiting for the paint to dry is the worst part.  I will be back tomorrow to show you the results ~ hopefully it turns out!

I love the pieced grass and you are constantly inspiring me to try curved piecing (also still on the to do list).
