Personal Unique Gifts You Can Make Easily

Posted by Ruth on 23 November 2016 | 0 Comments

Tags: ,

Isn't if funny how when you are out shopping you find something you never went out to intentionally buy, but the thought of it just sparks a brilliant idea? In fact, the thought gave me a great idea to create some very personal unique gifts to give away. I was actually in the art section of a store looking for sticker albums for the kids (gosh I didn't know these were so hard to find!) when I spotted some inexpensive ready framed canvases. Okay, so I'm not a painter, but I thought why not use them to mount some of my flower blocks!

More Grab-a-bags

These grab-a-bags are a little different to what you normally see as usually you don't know what's inside - mostly mystery items. There are four patterns inside and the bag is only $8.00 so that's $2.00 per pattern, but for our grab-a-bags you get at least one pattern you want. There are several to choose from. Select your favorite pattern and receive 3 more!

This weekend I was sorting out some of the patterns we still have in stock and decided that I could make some grab-a-bags. A little different to what you normally see as often with grab-a-bags you don't know what's inside - mostly mystery items. There are four patterns inside and they are only $8.00  I made several with at least one known pattern which I put on the front so quilters knew they were getting a minimum of one favorite. I think this was more fun. Here they are...

April is Autism Awareness Month

photo of HamishHamish is a young man who is autistic, but he is wonderful to know and as you may know, autistic children have amazing talents. One of Hamish's talents is the ability to draw and he does a pretty good job of it too. My company Arbee Designs, decided to display this talent by developing his drawings into quilt blocks and we are giving back to him $2.00 for every block purchased.

Wild Flowers quilt made by Ruth BlanchetHave you ever laid in a grass field and looked through the weeds and wild flowers? This was what I was doing when I created my quilt "Wild Flowers". Well not technically, but I was reminiscing about doing just that as I created this quilt.

Bargello Patterns - 2 seasons

Posted by Ruth on 30 July 2015 | 0 Comments

Tags:

As I've been designing a brand new bargello, I've also been refreshing my Bargello Seasons patterns and transferring them to downloadable patterns. The two I have done most recently is Bargello in Summer and Bargello in Winter - opposite seasons for opposite sides of the equator. I didn't do that on purpose, it was just the way it happened.

Six years ago last September I wrote a blog post on blogspot. I was amazed to find it still there even through I cannot get into the account and have not posted on there for many years. I did manage to copy the post and repost it here on my current blog site. This is the story of how Light Upon the Earth was created.
