Lucy and the Gnome

after a long fun weekend, ive spent today relaxing.  my sister was in town and we went on a bit of a shopping spree at my LQS and bought some of this----


my cousin Heidi at handmadebyheidi had been talking about this fabric all last week.  (ps...HEIDI is having a fabulous favorite things giveaway!) 

The fabric line is Lucys Crabshack by Sweetwater.  she was sending me photos and such.  making me drool.  so friday i finally got to raid my quilt store!  i LOVE LOVE LOVE it! the aqua color is lovely!   its so summery and this girl needs a new beach bag.  Im only 3-4 hours from the California beaches and this girl is planning a trip soon. think ill be too scared to actually take it ON the beach?   it might get all sandy and nasty.  LOL

my sister bought me this gnome.  she knows ive been on the hunt for a cute simple one for awhile.  well she proceeded to send me photos everyday for about a week of him at her house.  taunting me......teasing me to come get him. 



isnt he just adorable???  i want to pinch his cheeks. 





this picture woke up me one morning.  totally made my day!!  i almost dont want her to mail him.  just send me fun pics once in awhile.  :)

What cute little guy! I love the idea of getting a photo of him in his travels. I was just over at Heidi's and heard it was your birthday. I'm guessing you were 2 or 3 in the photo with the Barbie cake, soooo cute! I hope you had a wonderful birthday and a great Memorial Day. ;-> Toni Anne

I just saw on Heidi's blog that 2 days ago was your birthday. So, a bit late but Happy Birthday to you :). Wishing many, many crafty ideas and a lot of fun with working on them. And as I write to you - thank you for the FNSI you organize with Heidi - if not this I'd be much much far behind with my sewing :).

You have me drooling over those fabrics! I'm a self-admitted fabric hoarder after all ...

And those gnome photos are so very fun and funny. I agree with her not mailing him off. I think she still has lots and lots of fun things to do with that gnome!
