Welcome to my blog!

Glad to see you here, Welcome to my blog. I love quilting, fabric, colors, etc. and am a mother to two boys 22 and 16, grandma to one beautiful little girl. I work as an RN in Labor and Delivery so I get to see little babies come into this world and help their moms and families through it. I love my job. Many of my co-workers are quilters too, so we like to chat about it while we can. I love comments, so please let me know what you think, or just say hi!

Starbucks and Hexagons - 2 of my favorite things!

So I know this is a little extreme since I already have a Starbucks insulated cup, but when they came out with a new one that is bigger (24 oz) AND the two layers separate so you can decorate the inside of them, I knew I had to do THIS!
I got out some 1/2" hexies and some Central Park and Sunkissed fabrics and started stitching.


It was kind of difficult to shape it to the curve of the glass but I think it turned out great!  I love having these cups at work, helps me drink more water.  We have a good ice machine (I work at the hospital) so I enjoy cold drinks all shift long.  Now, no one will pick mine up by mistake either, they will just look at it and shake their heads and laugh.  I love it though.

What a cute idea, I would even drink more water in a classy cup like that.
