Create a cute keepsake with my Calico Bear pattern!

I created my Calico Bear pattern as a Signature Bear in 2013 but over the years I have noticed lots of people transforming clothing into beautiful keepsakes with this bear pattern. All it takes to create a unique gift is some used clothing and a bit of time to create a special keepsake toy.

Sadie Davies of Memory Bears By Bonny Bears has been using my pattern to sew some lovely keepsakes for her customers…

I want to say a big thank you to Tamarinis and Cherry Blossom Quilting for organizing such a great hop! AND thanks to you for joining me on my journey to get organized. I hope you’ve had as much fun as I have!

Week six ~ How to organize quilting rulers and tools:

I’m really glad to see that my fellow creatives have given you heaps of great ideas for storing quilting rulers and tools because…. I am quite an ignoramus when it comes to quilting and I cannot offer any advice in this field!!! Not being a quilter myself – the only rulers I know how to use properly are stationery ones and they are stored with the rest of my stationery!!! 🙂 So I really don’t have any tips for storing your quilting tools~>

BUT I do have a winner to announce

for my Creative Spaces Blog Hop giveaway!!!!

First though I want to say –  I appreciate ALL your comments and great tips too!
