Made in America~♥ KyleeMae designs

Here is a wonderful "new" magazine that is FULL of beautiful pictures and stories to inspire all of us~♥ They also have a blog americanfolklife.blogspot.com where I found Kylee Mae featured in a back issue~she also has an Etsy store that I visited and bought "the" bag I saw in the FOLK magazine~

New bags are far and few between for me...I find one and I keep it forever. When I find a new bag it happens just like this~my eyes recognize a new bag like a long lost friend and it makes its way into the line-up...
I am waiting patiently for this new magazine to come to my mailbox....I discontinued two other quilting magazines in an effort of self control....

What I really want is one of those caramel apples..I would have to eat that leaf so no caramel would be
wasted....I'm serious....lol!


 Here is my bag as it arrived with Kylees wonderful sticker and card~

 I love the mailman~I mean mail......

 And here is the beautiful bag! Inside and out~BEAUTIFUL! Upcycled feedsack material with a gorgeous silky lining ~ plenty of pockets and a pretty key fob~ Thank you Kylee Mae!

Cynthias autumn quilt #1~♥ Thread auditioning~

How PERFECT is this quilt for this time of year! Lots of fun spaces to work some magic~♥


 Remember to lay your individual strands of thread onto your fabric when auditioning colors~the impact of the color is improved off the spool~
 There is no wrong color my friends~
 but today this will be the choice! You can see that on the spool it looked a bit overwhelming but by the strand it blends and accents perfectly~
