About my header

My shed is my header by my son Darrell, He painted the Robin for me and said that it reminded him of me. Because Robins use other birds nest and if there is an egg in it, they will take care of it just like its their own. He said thats what I do, I have always taken care of others in need of a home when I come across someone in need. Isnt that Sweet, I had told him I wanted a bird and this is the one he chose. Robins have solid blue eggs which are the symbols for him and his brothers and the speckled egg are the others I have taken into my home. It was very touching to me because he researched his piece, He is a true artist and has lots of great jobs. my neighbor had hers done to

Carrie here from believemagic. I quote:  It's wonderful to be part of this celebration - congratulations, Shirley!  
I enjoy all things fabric and paper and I love sewing.  You'll often find me in my studio (or all over the house) creating art quilts, fabric books and patchwork quilts.  Stitching makes me happy but I truly light up when my art, words or patterns inspire others to express their creativity.    What better way to inspire others, than giving them patterns and materials to make their own stitched creations.  So I'm giving away the following to a lucky Simple Sew reader:

'In the Quilt Shop' pattern 
Mini Creative Girl Art Quilt Kit with: ( pictured above)
4 printed faces
Pattern for dress
Fabric including some of my favorite text fabric 
Ruffled fabric strip
Buttons

Since I was putting together this prize, I created another prize for my blog readers.  Stop by my website for a chance to win a second prize package. http://www.believemagic.com/

Happy Creating!
Carrie
