It's all about ME

Well now ,I  know you have all been having such fun seeing all the wonderful creative interpretations of Amy Bradley's pattern "It's all about Me ". I know I had a blast making this fun little pattern , wasn't too sure in the beginning of what I would do but a light bulb came on, and from there it was easy and so fun :-) First I want to thank Madamm Samm for being our blog host and to Marlene for being such a fantastic cheerleader we wouldn't be able to do this without you both and of course without Amy's adorable pattern ,so thanks Amy .
 For those of you who have been following my blog for a while you know how much I love crazy quilting , why ,I took part in a challenge " Crazy Quilting Fridays" with Betsy of Quilting Fiesta for over a year , each week we would make a crazy patch block and post it , so much fun and a great way to reduce that stash of scraps or so I thought lol.  So...... when it came time to make this block I thought why not use my love for crazy quilting to create "It's All About Me" ,so here you have it my version with a slight twist from Amy's pattern .
 "I'm a little bit Crazy ", my hair was black at one time but looks more like this now almost all white, well maybe all white if I am honest ;-) I have to say my figure is not anything like this which I guess is a good thing , but I am crazy , crazy about quilting , crazy about taking part in blog hops and my friends think I am crazy getting involved in so much ,but hey that makes life interesting and maybe at times a bit CRAZY !
Here is a little close up of Me , a pincushion in my hair with beads used as the head of the pins , lovely earrings to adorn my ears , a large purple flower brooch  to match the flowers in my crazy patch dress of various black and white fabrics and hey even my glasses match what more could a girl ask for right .

As a thank you to each of you for taking the time to stop by, I am having a little giveaway , if you are interested in winning this little mug rug and some other little surprise that I have yet to decide on just leave me a nice comment and I would really appreciate you be a follower , thanks and be sure to stop by and visit all of the other gals playing along in the hop today , the links are below and if you missed any of the other days be sure to check them out , Marlene has all of the participants listed on her blog . Have a wonderful day and do something Crazy it just might make you happy  :-)
hugs Sheila
