Family Values

When i first decided to start Threadbare Creations, i thought long and hard on a theme. I really wanted to leave my teeny weeny mark on the world with something that would inspire. Whats the most important thing to me?? family!!! So i designed 20 individual stitcheries. Each one has a special little message to remind us of Family Values (which is the name of this quilt). It got shelved for quite some time and i moved onto other designs, but Monday i got it out of the cupboard and took it to the LQS. They r going to run it as their BOM which im really thrilled im going to apologise in advance for the pics, i pick up all the photography tommorrow, all ready for the pattern packs:

This was prior to quilting....the shop r actually having it quilted for me (which was fantastic and such a huge relief) and here r just 4 of the individual stitcheries:

The plan was that they could be sold individually and used in a number of ways.....cushions, wallhangings etc etc The shop is still going to sell them individually and also as a BOM. My goals for May r kinda on hold for the next week or so, while i work on getting these patterns ready for sale.

Im dying to sew some loggies and i have SBS blocks cut out ready......might sneak a few hours actually sewing tommorrow!!!

A huge BIG thank u to everyone for ur wonderful comments and emails on the Journal Cover....i really appreciate the support and encouragement.

Enjoy ur family!
