  1. This is a fabulous fabric range. I love how the modern and traditional play so nicely together. What a fab quilt they'd make. Lots of little things make me happy. Being outside engaging with nature and flowers. Walking home from work and not getting wet through. Going on mini adventures with Chief and of course playing with fabric!

  2. My almost 3 year old is the best! He definitely keeps me on my toes and brings me mostly joy.

  8. Beautiful collection and I love the name for it!! It's the little things that are important to me... A cup of my favourite tea, the song of a bird, the smell of fresh laundry on the line, the warmth of the wood stove on a freezing night... I could go on and on...

  9. My grandchildren give me endless joy with their smiles and words - it is truly the little things that bring joy and I feel lucky enough to have always appreciated that. Simple flowers give me great pleasure - I spent hours roaming fields and hedgerows as a child in the 50's looking for wildflowers. I still search for them, especially as a passenger in the car. Fabric gives me pleasure too and sewing has always been a joy to me. Being able to create beauty with a needle and thread - to make a few scraps into something beautiful pleases me. Well before I start to hear violins I will stop right now. Thanks for the chance to win this gorgeous fabric - now that would bring me joy! ha ha

  70. Working/playing with fabric brings me joy and I try to spread that around by gifting many of the things I make. Things given randomly and for no reason are sometimes the best. For example, the other day I took some homemade potholders to the girls that work at my local bank and let them each choose one to take home. A small thing, but they all seemed very happy with the unexpected gift.

Beautiful blooms, with a view to the trees outside, makes me smile every time I see them. This week, I have lisianthus and irises.......gorgeous😃

  94. This is a gorgeous bundle with beautiful colors. I absolutely love the darker fabrics.

    The little things that make me sparkle are my 3 young grandchildren. They make my heart shine when they come to visit us. DO they count as little things? LOL On top of that spending time alone, away from any distractions with my husband. He is my one true love and soulmate!

    Each year I look forward to our row of lilacs blooming in the Spring. They fill my entire home with that wonderful scent. I could write an entire list of little things that make me sparkle.

  110. Every spring, my Grecian windflowers make me smile and bring me joy. I planted a flower garden about 30 years ago, all different kinds of bulbs etc. I no longer have it. But every spring, there are still a few windflowers that show up in my grass; pretty pink, purple, white, and blue ones. They don't last very long, and I make sure my husband doesn't mow that part of the grass until they are done! I really should plant some more of those flowers, as they obviously take no upkeep at all!!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win this beautiful bundle.

Small joys I witness frequently in my grown children, how strong they are in their relationships w/significant their other, the small holidays/trips they plan together to relax or visit a natural wonder, stitching of course, grand parenting for the first time...now that's a true joy and has made my heart swell with many trips down memory lane.

  154. Things that bring me joy - kitties, lizards, flowers, cicadas singing in the trees, phone calls from my sons, giggles with my husband, snuggling my great nieces, stories with my siblings ...
    I'm so glad you asked as now my heart is singing with the thoughts of so many happy things.

  156. Since my kids are teenagers now, it brings me joy when they say those three little words: You were right. Bliss.

  160. I would have to say that my kids bring me the most joy (even though they drive me crazy too) and my husband makes me sparkle. He makes me feel beautiful, loved and precious everyday.
