Tiny Tuesday and happiness project

here are little 5 inch squares from my BOM-Constellation of stars through a local quilt shop. I think the piecing is improved on these little guys compared to previous posts.

One idea from the happiness project is spend a bit o' money on yourself for a special item once in a while. This is something I rarely do. Money doesn't buy us happiness but it can contribute to our joy, inspiration and vision , on occasion. I don't want to call myself cheap but I am frugal... that's why all my beginning quilts are scrappy!

The BOM and this little magazine are a big splurge for me. I have spent very little money on them but they have given me Tons of happiness/joy/inspiration in return. I want to say that this is a great magazine and I read all the articles, looked and all the pictures and learned new things. Check it out, it is the first one that they have put out there. I am a big fan of Quilty and the Internet based tutorials and weekly you tube shows. LOVE IT!

Here is a great book Mom gave me for my birthday and I love it. I am feeling a retro mod theme going in my quilts of the future. I love and appreciate traditional things but I am ready to try some new things now.
