Up Too Late At Night!

Hey Everyone -
Have you been as busy as I have? I have been crafting into the wee hours of the morning, and in this heat, you feel pretty sapped of strength in the morning. But I really wouldn't have it any other way. Except for the heat, of course!
Look what I finished yesterday. The pictures aren't the greatest because I took them late last night! And this was a fun project. I got the idea from this blog: My Lily Eden. Her blog is super cool as well as her creations. Check out her darling Etsy site: Lemon Tree Studio. A girl after my own heart, obviously! :)
These letters were sewn onto a fleece interfacing and free-form drawn/cut out of fabric. (I didn't have any letter stencils handy.) It's hard to get a good picture because they're so big - nearly 4 x 6" each. But they are super fun and now my daughter wants me to make some in the letters of her name. I'm glad her name isn't that long!
And this is a fun black and orange Halloween bouquet of felt flowers I made this week. I am totally in a fall mood all of a sudden - are you? I just wish the weather would cooperate now!
Also - don't forget to enter my Pincushion and Book giveaway! See below or: Laurie Star Pincushion Giveaway!. You have until Monday the 24th to enter!

Hi Laurie!

I love ALL your new godies!!! They're all sooo adorable, and the colors are so pretty!

I've become a night owl myself! That's when the house is nice and quiet and I can have the most fun!
