Free shipping AND Free bottle of Tangerine!!!

I posted on Thanksgiving that Spark Naturals was having a sale over weekend with FREE SHIPPING but today and TODAY ONLY, they are also sending you a FREE 5ML BOTTLE OF TANGERINE ESSENTIAL OIL with a purchase of over $25!

This is a GREAT DEAL!

You might ask what are some of the benefits of Tangerine?  Well, how about it helping you with...
Anxiety, cellulite, poor circulation, digestion, insomnia, liver problems, parasites, lymphatic decongestant, obesity, swelling and water retention.

You can diffuse it into the air, you can put a drop or 2 into your glass of water and drink it, you can also rub it on the area of concern.

More from our retreat

I wasn't able to get alot of pictures of what the other ladies were working on but here are a few:

This one will have the bears in the center of the quilt with all the little 6" bear paw blocks surrounding it.  Going to be beautiful when it is done.

Layer cake with the large twister ruler.  I need to make one of these!

I didn't get a picture of this finished but it is so much cuter in person than the picture on the pattern package!  You use a very tiny twister ruler to make the pumpkin.  It was interesting that 3 of us had twister rulers to use on projects we brought!

Notice the nice design wall we had that went across both sides of the room by our sewing stations.

I'm still working on my Grandma's Apron quilt.  I don't know why I have such a time embroidering.  It is my take along project for trips.

Rain and flash floods took over while we were gone.

Near Name's Hill, LaBarge, Wyoming.  This road was closed for a while so the mud could be moved off the highway.  That hill in the picture has pioneer names on it.  One is supposedly Jim Bridger's.  Interesting, since he was suppose to have been illiterate.  :)

The sky was crazy beautiful all the way home!

Teton Patchwork Retreat

As mentioned in my last post, I was able to attend a quilt retreat last week.  We spent 5 days sewing up a storm inside the house while the real storms moved around outside!  At one point we weren't sure we would be able to make it home because a flash flood/mud slide closed our main highway.  We have been getting so much rain lately!
The retreat was wonderful! Each room was decorated in a different theme.  The sewing room is set up for 8 quilters.  Since there were only 7 of us, we paid $170 dollars for 5 days, 4 nights.  I thought that was quite reasonable!  We did have to bring our own food but we pooled everything together and cost was about $20 per quilter.
Here are some of the quilts hanging up around the home:

Absolutely LOVE this quilt.  The label says it was designed by the homeowner.

I had this cute quilt hanging above my bed.

Another stunning quilt made with gorgeous fall colors!  Notice the hangers on each quilt!

Little coasters for your drink.

A bit blurry since I was hanging on the stairs trying to take the picture.

This one in a Hoffman Challenge.  Supposedly there is a mistake in the quilt but no one seems to know where it is.

These little bitties are actual fabric minis.  Love the stain glass look with them!

Most days were overcast so we didn't get much of a view this time of the Tetons.

Our home away from home!

What I'm Working On

This is Snow Business by Geralyn Powers on my design wall today.  
I went to a quilt retreat last week and this was one of the projects I worked on.  I took projects/kits that I had stashed away in my closet.  You know....those ones that you want to make but somehow they get pushed behind all the newer projects that are calling your name.  I'm so glad I took this kit with me.  It is still as cute as it was when I first saw it.....back in 2005.  Ummmm......yea.

Spark Naturals Essential Oils

For the past 2 years I have been using essential oils in my home and for my family.  Today I want to share a newer oil company that I have recently become affiliated with.   First off I have to tell you that I am a believer in pure essential oils.  Spark Naturals sells pharmagrade oils.

This is from their website:
Spark Naturals  products are Certified Pure PharmaGrade – CPPG – a physical standard ensuring our products are of the appropriate identity, strength, quality, purity, and consistency standards used internationally for quality and purity. Our raw materials are tested and authenticated to be of pharmaceutical grade purity. Spark Naturals likes to deal with facts; our goal is to educate the public about health issues, offer serious alternatives and provide luxury products backed by facts – not advertising or business opportunity ploys or gimmicks.  We offer CPPG™ products – luxury products intelligently priced.  CPPG™ is our quality commitment – we will offer only those products for which we can ensure our commitment to true quality – our commitment to luxury, intelligently priced.

I heard about Spark Naturals soon after they launched and bought a few of their oils to try to see how they compared with the ones I have been using.  I have to admit that they are wonderful!

Right now they are having a back to school sale on 2 very popular blends of oils plus you receive 2 roller bottles for only $33.00!  It comes in a wonderful tin so you will always know where your oil is at.
Jeddy's Blend is made up of :Lavender, Sweet Marjoram, Roman Chamomile, Ylang, Sandalwood, Vanilla, Spruce, Rosewood, Blue Tansy, Frankincense, Vetiver, Patchouli & Fractionated Coconut Oil.
It is a blend for those with anxiety, ADD or ADHD.  I have been using it when I feel overwhelmed.  Love it!

The blend, Shield contains the oils:  Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Lemon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary.
It is an oil to help ward off germs, colds, etc.  It helps protect.  I use this oil almost every day by rubbing a couple of drops on the bottom of my feet.  You just don't know when you are going to come in contact with someone who is sick and none of us want to be sick, do we?!

You can use either oil blend topically or aromatically.  

You can click here to see the other oils and products Spark Naturals sells.  If you do want to buy anything please feel free to use my discount: dotsanddoodles.  It will get you 10% off your purchase!  You can use the code over and over.  

If you haven't tried essential oils but have been curious about them or if you want to try an affordable, good quality oil, please consider Spark Naturals.  I think you will like them!

Knock Knock Knock Knock!

Anyone still out there?!!!!
It has been a long time in "blogland" time of me posting a new post here!

I just haven't been sewing much this summer so the blog has been on the back burner for some time now.

Plus summer is just busy here in Wyoming!  Everyone who lives here knows how short the summers are.  You try to get outside every chance you have before the cold comes again.  This summer has been full of gardening (not going too good this year), to Big Birthday trips, to family reunions.

I did get a bit of sewing in the last part of July.  These darling babies are my grandkids.  The littlest one is missing in these pics since he doesn't walk yet.  Let me tell you....trying to get 6 kids, 6 and under, to cooperate for pictures was exhausting.  First picture the photographer took, the baby did a face plant on the concrete and cried for the next hour and a half.  The next child, 15 months, just kept getting up and walking off every time you sat her down.  Sigh.  Like I said....exhausting.

I had been wanting to make some clothes for the girls for awhile now so figured this would be the time to do it.  After quilting for so many years, it was hard to come back to sewing clothing!  Just reading a pattern was confusing to me at times.  I found a couple of cute patterns on etsy for the tops and used a pattern I already had for the capris/bloomers.  The fabric is from an Adornit line called Nested Owls that I picked up at the Utah Shop Hop in June.  I love it!

Ahhhhhh......I already miss these munchkins!
