Spelling Bee Saturday, the letter "I"

Welcome to Spelling Bee Saturday!
My letter today, on the Fat Quarter quilt along, is the letter "I".
I is for icing, as they say in Canada.
I think they call it frosting in the US.
Either way, I bought it for the photoshoot and ate the whole thing!!!
Yes, you read that right, icing is my kryptonite :)

 I is also for ice cream.
I love this cute little ice cream cone pin cushion that my sweet friend Joanna made for me.
The cone is ceramic, and her mom crocheted the cherries :)

Best of all, I is for Isabel, my grand daughter.
She is the cutest little ball of energy, and she is what my "I" is all about :)

I made a cute wall hanging for her bedroom.
It measures 36" long by 6" tall.

I used Bee Basics fabric by Lori Holt (I'm in love with that line!) and Riley Blake dots, pink on white.

I took these closeups so that you can see the individual prints :)

I used "Vintage Happy" by Lori Holt, for the butterfly.

Now for the announcement that I promised you!
I'm giving away a copy of Lori Holt's Spelling Bee book!!!

I have had such a blast being a part of 
Fat Quarter shop's quilt along!
Thanks for following me!!!

Spelling Bee Saturday, the letter "h"

This week is brought to you by the letter "h".
"h" is for horse.

Isabel, my 2 year old grand daughter, is so excited when she gets on the phone with her grandfather and I, that all she can say is "hi!" "hi!" "hi!"!!!
This letter is dedicated to her :)
Izzy was the inspiration for my little mini quilt, which I changed from hello to hi!

This is such a vintage phone, I don't think a 2 year old would know how to use it!

Here's my letter "h", I used Lori Holt's Bee Basics, and I especially love the teal color!

When I see this "hi!", I can always hear Izzy's breathless voice in my ear :)

I love Lori's book, Spelling Bee, and all of her other books as well!
She is such an inspiration to me, and such a fun and cute person :)
I would also like to thank the Fat Quarter Shop for this fabulous quilt along!

Stay tuned for a big giveaway next week!

Spelling Bee Saturday, the letter "g"

Isn't life grand!
"g" is for grandchildren,
all 13 of them!
(3 boys and 10 girls)

I'm beyond thrilled to be participating in the fat quarter shop's "Spelling Bee Saturday".
I have the letter "g" and the first thing that came to mind is "grandchildren"!

I made 6" letters, flash card style.
I can spell lots of words with these letters.
Ran, child, dinner, clean, dear, idea, read, red, dad, girl, glad, grad, nice, angel are just a few words I thought of, that are spelled from the word grandchildren.
I looked it up and there are 908 words spelled from 13 letters!!!

The fabric I used for the letters and the binding, 
is Bee Basics by Lori Holt.
Riley Blake's swiss dot, grey on white was used for the background.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and joining me for 
Spelling Bee Saturday :)
