Are you filled with JOY today? 

It's okay if you naturally are not filled with joy right this minute! We actually are dealing with some issues right now, including one of our AC units that is out upstairs (in Houston's 105degree weather!! eeeep!!).

To be perfectly honest, I don't know how God is going to provide in this situation, BUT I do know that He IS going to provide!

…and that's the root of my JOY today!! I'm choosing it today!

Out of this attitude comes some fun creativity…like this little mini-quilt:

I couldn't help but smile the entire time I was stitching and sewing! 

The little woodland girlie design is from Aimee Ray's Doodle Stitching, The Motif Collection. LOVE!! She is paired with this fabulous Apple of My Eye Fabric from The Quilted Fish! You'll be seeing a LOT of that in the next week, for sure, here on the blog as we start our BLOG tour on Sunday, July 1st! So FUN!!!

Here are some more pics:

So I'm really loving one word inspirations. Combine that with some really fun embroidery thread, and you have a winning project!

At Quilt Maket in May, my darling friend, Brooke, picked up some embroidery thread samples of Cosmo thread from Lecien for me. I contacted Lecien and am now expecting a wonderful package of threads to play around with and show you how cool and fun they are! 

Here's what Brooke sent me and what I did with it…

The blue thread is verigated! So fun!!! It goes perfectly with that blue fabric!

I beaded the little piece with beads from Club Scrap that I've been hoarding. I have such a fun craft room! eeep!!

Here are some other pics of it:

I love lace!! and teal!! (and my stash of baubles and beads!!)

Sometimes you just need a little pick-me-up to remember that joy you are choosing! :) 

One last thing…

Don't forget the blog tour that starts on July 1st! I'll post here before that, but I just wanted to remind you!

    All your projects are ADORABLE! I love the colors! I’m doing a “Finish these UFO’s before new projects” project or I would be tempted to do something like that myself! So cute!
