Great Gifts from SCRAPS!

Hello Hello!
  Not long ago we shared our own tutorial for a cute MugMat that makes a nice little gift--and before that a tutorial for a covered Belt (we have the belt webbing here at the shop!) 

   Just in time for Mother's Day and Graduations--I found a wonderful Compilation of Gift Ideas at "Flamingo Toes" You should really check this list out! 
A clever idea on the list is this "Hoop Pockets" from Amy Friend at "During Quiet Time" ...And we have a large selection of Embroidery hoops in many sizes here at The Dusty Attic!  Click on the picture below to travel over to "Flamingo Toes" and check out her pics and links to 25 great projects!

"How does your Garden Grow?"

     What glorious sunny days we've had on the Eastern Shore this week!  Is it safe to say that a few quilt projects have been laid aside while we tend to seeds and mulch?
If you can take just an hour break to whip up one of these super handy aprons from Cheryl at SewCanDo--You'll have your pruners, seeds and gloves close at hand while you work magic in the garden! And we have the perfect Dear Stella fabrics for this project!


Planting flowers, veggies...just relaxing in your lawn chair admiring your hard work--It's a good life! 
Get Happy with Dear Stella!
