My Heather Baily Encounter plus a Giveaway!!!

I told my husband last night at dinner…

” If I died tonight babe I’d be a happy woman! “

he responded…” Just because you meet Heather Bailey?!!”

I smiled back and nodded but also added because I’m so blessed to have a rock star hubby and amazing kids!!!But yeah… Heather Bailey encounters have a way of making life feel pretty darn wonderful!

She is as beautiful and welcoming as I imagined her. She made everyone feel like we were all just hanging out.It was like catching up with an old friend I hadn’t seen in years! She was simply adorable! Watching her excitement was contagious as she showed her latest creations. She even shared with us her sketch book where all her patterns were born!
If your reading this Heather I kid you not… If you ever get tired working with fabric (please never do!!!) you could make your mark in the tattooing world!!! Your sketching skills are out of this world!!!

Here she is showing us her sketch book.

Funny but as I was looking at page after page of her amazing work I could only think about what a treasure that book must mean to her. Years and years and years from now that will be one of her Great Great Granddaughters most cherished reminders! Thanks for sharing it with us Heather!!

Look at all her yummy creations…

That sweet little turtle pin cushion is something to look forward to!!!

And look at this awesome flower!!

You can find a step by step free tutorial on her fabulous blog

HELLO my name is Heather
