I am so excited to share with you today a project I have been working on with Therm O Web:)  This is what they posted.  Please go check it out when you have a chance and leave a comment...  They have prizes:)

Hi Everyone!
We would like to welcome our Sew Daily readers to our blog!  In honor of all you stitchers, sewers, and quilters…here’s a beautiful baby quilt created by our design team member, Jenifer Cowles! We all know little girls are made of sugar and spice…but also wings and a pinch of fairy dust!
Butterflies A Flutter baby quilt
Beautiful baby quilt featuring SpraynBond Adhesives
This beautiful quilt features our new spray adhesive, SpraynBond Basting Adhesive, to make quick work of the design and applique work! Simply spray the backs of the butterflies and then arrange your quilt. If you don’t like the placement of some of the butterflies, simply move them! After you have the arrangement where you like, sew them into place. The adhesive will actually wash out of the material when you launder the quilt.
SpraynBond butterfly quilt
SpraynBond Basting Adhesive was used to design and attach the butterflies!
Customize this beautiful quilt for the little girl in your life! Change the patterns, the colors or even the shapes to gear it towards your sweetheart’s favorites…
Be sure to check out the idea page on our website for detailed directions and a PDF pattern for the butterflies used on the quilt!

Here is a recent tutorial that I did on the Therm O Web Blog:)  Go check it out when you get a chance.

With the kids back in school and all the excitement of learning  for this new year, I thought I would throw together a couple quick bookmarks made from scraps of fabric.
1)  Cut out a scrap of fabric 3×10 and cut out a scrap of HeatNBond fuseable Fleece 1.5×9
2) Iron the fuseable Fleece to the wrong side of the fabric (like you are wrapping a gift)
3)  Sew around the edges and decorate as desired.  I used some May Arts ribbons to really make them stand out.  I also used some new Momenta Ribbon slides to make them that much more special.
My Daughter had a friend over and they couldn’t make up their mind over which one they wanted, but they did read for the rest of the day:)
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my project today, come back tomorrow for even more inspiration.

Door Wreath-May Arts

There is another Challenge up on the May Arts blog, let them know you want to participate:)  Here is my project for inspiration:)

Welcome to the "Ink It!" Craft Challenge Inspiration Week!  
If you haven't heard, May Arts & Helmar have teamed up for the September Craft Challenge!  We will be providing 25 participants with a selection of ribbon and 450 Quick Dry to create a craft project with!  The Challenge?  They have to color the ribbon.  So, all week long a different Ribbonista will be creating an "Ink It!" Inspiration project. 
First up, we have Ribbonista Jenifer Cowles with this gorgeous wreath:
Hi, Jenifer here with you today to kick start the new challenge.  I was so excited to receive this batch of ribbons to create with.  I decided to make a wreath for my Daughters door.
I colored the ribbons with some fabric paint, Glimmer mists and Ranger Inks.  I am so happy with how it turned out.  The ribbons take color so well and your options are just endless.
I added a couple of paper flowers and a little paper banner with my Daughters name on it.
I hope this was helpful and it inspires you for this new challenge.  I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
Now go create something….
