Sweet As Honey Blog Tour

Some of you may know... but probably not many... that I am the granddaughter of a beekeeper. I grew up spending summers in my grandparent's garden- tending to the raspberry bushes (mostly), making mud pies, picking vegetables, and witnessed my grandfather smoke out the hives and begin the process for harvesting the honey. When Bonnie, from Going Home To Roost released her new fabric line, Sweet As Honey, there was NO way I could pass up on the opportunity to be part of this blog tour and create something fun out of this gorgeous fabric line...



The colors in the fabric are so warm and yet vibrant... each and every pattern seemed "yummy" to me. According to Bonnie, "It takes me to the most lovely place, where the sun is always shining, the birds fly free and the honey is extra sweet." ... Amen.

As soon as I spotted this fabric, I KNEW that I needed to have a little "fun" with it, and create something whimsical... something to invite Spring into my home...

There's something about pinwheels that scream Spring... and warmth... and these little ones were created, mounted onto craft sized dowel rods, and immediately placed in a jar. 



The colors worked perfectly for my master bedroom's gallery wall... but really, if you place them anywhere in your house, you're sure to smile as you walk by them. I stuck with 3... because I'll have 3 little ones come the end of this summer... but could you imagine a whole jar full? Another idea, is to decorate a simple gift wrapping with one of these lovelies. Talk about brightening someone's day...

Click here to view all 25 projects on this blog tour... so many beautiful creations that you do not want to miss out on. Be sure to check out Caitlin from Salty Oat's beautiful market tote... and I'm super excited to see what tomorrow brings over at Craft Nurse Quilt.
