ABC's of UR Priceless....and giveaway!


Since I was the last on this blog hop, I am hoping you went to visit all my dear quilting friends
that I shared by day with .... Here they are!  Welcome if this is your first time here!

This post should come with a warning...lots of pics...lol

                                                       Janice M ( she is there now) 

Last day, day 7  - Nov. 13





I know, I know....ABC's who would even think
of doing such a thing...? 

I am blaming it on CAROL, she began spreading a rumour
I had made hundreds of coin purses.... such silly Rubbish... lol

The truth of the matter  is I ONLY made about 26...maybe a couple
more- that I did not include here, because they were my samples
and our button for this blog hop....

If I wasn't sew busy planning our very SPECIAL DECEMBER
surprise ( the whole month in fact) and working on assignments
and papers for school, I probably would have gotten hundreds done...

Sew I will squash that rumour right now....
Sorry to disappoint you all....lol

Ok, let's get to the Alphabet...my first one here went
to a young lady is Costa Rica, A for Alexandra....one of my fav's for sure.
She made me a delightful sewing kit for my needles. 
A miniature "apple" paper piecing just for her! 



B for Beonce...and not Beyonce...Beonce...
I received this fabric from Kiki, and I was tickled pink
to finally find something that would suit a coin purse
perfectly...very 50's don't you think? 


C for Charlie....Jane  sent me some Charlie Brown
Fabric....I love this one...I love fall! Always a sweet treat
to share one's stash... ( with me lol) 


D for Danielle... How I love this one...I have 
quite a bit of this fabric, always thought it sew dainty,
feminine, complete with ruffles and bows! 

 ( handles from Quilt Taffy) 


E for Emily, ohhh she is such the Matriarch
of "the fam", hard not to be drawn into this fabric line,
just priceless! 


F for Felicity, surely you don't need to be concerned with her,
even though she is holding a hammer...possibly letting
everyone  know, please don't touch this coin purse lol...


G for Gabby, my best friend at boarding school was named Gabriella,
she is from Switzerland, she loves sour apples, the greener
the better. We are still friends after all these years, I sent
her this a couple weeks ago, she wrote back
" I almost bit into it" ....Yes that is Gabby, always a lover
of sweet things lol.... I just pucker at the thought!
( and I love sour, but green apples....I will leave
those to her) 




 H for Hailey, made this with linen gussets , back
and lining. She just cannot understand why her man
thinks she needs a coin purse?
MEN! lol



 I for ISHA,  love the name and the image...
Sometimes I wish ladies dressed like this more...




J for Jane, she loves seeing her name out there I am told ( wink)
I wonder how she will feel to have this lovely in the pink
coin purse named after her ...
( oh and she loves PINK) 


K for Katie, Katie always brings sunshine in my life, the funniest
thing is I have 8 GF whose name is Katie. 4 of them 
want this one. lol 

( andover fabrics the red thread, our giveaways) 


L for Loretta, one of the NUNS at school was named Sister
Loretta Laplante, she wore a frown much like this lady...
I don't think she would be terrible amused! 
Although I love "the fam"and I did fear Sister Loretta! lol




M for Melanie Daniels, you know THE BIRDS star, Tippi Hedren.
Her character's name was Melanie Daniels. 
This fabric and stitched crow was from Kris, even though
it was to be made into a pillow, I thought this one would
certainly be mine, and I would proudly keep this one
as a reminder of a shared passion for crows!
( not really but I just love The Birds, and I just ordered
the fabric to make a similar quilt like Kris made for her son)



N for Nancy Drew, I love Nancy Drew almost as much as The Birds,
sew when I heard MODA was coming out with Nancy Drew
fabric, I just knew we had to have a blog hop...
we will be registering interested Nancy Drew fans 
this week...for January Blog hop... The fabric is divine!



O for Octavia...when I think of Octavia Spencer she played Minny
in the movie blockbuster
 THE HELP, my movie of choice these past couple years.
 I have the movie and ohhhh 
may have watched it a few times....I think Octavia would
love this coin purse almost as much as she loved
 baking chocolate pie! 

( andover fabrics the red thread, our giveaways) 



P for Penelope, I never get tired of orange or dots
or outlines of lovely fabric pieces, combined we have
Penelope. Isn't she a darling ? 



Q for Quinn, I always love names that suits
both sexes. I have gf named Quinn, and we go out
and make reservations for high tea, Quinn and Samm, I think
they are surprised to see 2 ladies walk in! lol 
This one is certainly for HER! 



R for RaeAnn, we all know a lady  by this name and she
is an avid quilter, she no doubt measures up to this one to a T. 
This fabric came by a lady whose name is a fruit. ( wink) 


S for Sabrina, I was going to call her Samantha, but realllllly
I don't think she resembles me at all. And I really don't know
any Sabrina's either. This one was won by Soma...
I could have called it Soma...I just did not want
her to think I thought she was this scary ...lol
Although she did just organize a paper piecing Halloween theme!
mmmmmmmm 




T for Timothy, another member of "the fam" he is rather fond of pink,
ohhh he told me...so this one is heading off to HIM...wink..



U for Ulric, I loved this name! Sounds as strong as this
image..."the fam's" home. Love the orange in this fabric...
kinda like pumpkin...and I LOVE PUMPKIN! 



V for Victoria. I had a nursing teacher named Victoria, we all 
called her Vickie, I always liked Victoria better. We still are in 
contact after ahhhh *# years lol  I sent this to her last week!
She loved it ! 



W for Wicked Wendy, our dear friend who hosted and cheered
for the Wicked Blog hop. I made this especially for her...
Thought it would be a reminder of a fine job she did
and I drew the wicked house....the other side
has her name with crows in the air....


X for Xandra.....Ok, I know of no one with this name...
but I also don't know any babies who look like this either...
( another member of "the fam" )





Y for Yvette, being french I had many classmates who had
french names. Yvette, was my study friend. We both spent
more time in the library then we did in the pews....
I had embroidered this with variegated Presencia threads....
and the gussets are blue roses... She would just love this..
She always had blue ribbons on her ponytail! 


Z for Zoe, now I do have a friend name Zoe, and she and I have
taken many baking classes together with a famous
baker in Toronto. Dufflet, before she opened a few bakeshops,
she used to teach classes in a small store.... We certainly
learned from a pro, I made 2 of these...one for Zoe
and another wellllll, can't say at the moment..
But she loves to bake and cook and ......too! 




I thought you would like to the linings...
I took as much care in selecting these as I did the fabrics
for the coin purses... All of these were made
from Andover Fabrics, the RED Thread, giveaway BUNDLES. 




I called these the GIRLS! 
( made from dots and linens) 


This collection "the fam" 



This collection I called 
THEME! 



 More FAM relatives! 



I called these EARTH collection! 



I called these OOAK! 


 I called these PRICELESS!



I have a few more I have already cut out and 
are ready to be sewed...Many of my "FAM" and "Friends will
be getting these for Christmas...
I think they make a perfect OOAK gift...the possibilities
are endless....



ohhhh this is just an extra I made for a special cheerleader....!
