Time flies when you are having fun!

Hello again!

This week has flown by! ( As a matter of fact, where did February go?? I cannot believe it is almost March!) The weather was absolutely glorious here on the weekend…warm-ish, and sunny and lovely. You could definitely tell Spring was on its way. And then everything went downhill after that…..rain, cold , wind, wet snow…..sigh. I guess I will just have to wait a wee bit longer for that nice weather! In the meantime I did get to enjoy a pretty sunshine-y bouquet of flowers!004

I also got to work on a few fun projects! As you know I am participating in the BLOOM sew-along by Lori Holt. Every Monday she posts a new block with instructions on how to complete it. So far I have been able to keep up.  I was a little behind last week, but this week was Johnny-on-the-spot and got it pieced and quilted right away.002This is going to be one wild and crazy-colorful quilt, but I think it will be very cute!

I also worked on the row quilt that Martingale is putting on. I completed the Scottie Dog row and then could not resist starting the Wash Day row! Neither one of them is quilted yet, but that might have to wait until some evening or the weekend.

Aren’t they the cutest? I am totally in love with these rows! I think next I’m going to piece some of the “connecting” rows, because I might just get lazy and leave those out completely at the end if all my other rows are done. And I think the quilt will look even better with those connecting rows!

Remember this little quilt that I completed a few weeks ago and was trying to quilt and hang BEFORE Valentine’s Day?001Yeah, well, that didn’t happen. It is still sitting in my room patiently waiting for me to finish it. BUT, the great thing is that I just signed up for a Craftsy class on machine-quilting with your walking-foot. So far I have watched 3 lessons and they have been super informative! I can’t wait to learn more so I can apply all I learned to this little quilt. So it will be sitting a little longer, but I think the wait will be worth it. 🙂

This past week I did a little bit of shopping and came home with NO FABRIC ( yeah, me!) and two adorable books.

I had been having so much fun working on my stitchery that when I spotted this book I couldn’t resist! ( See that adorable mermaid? And that toadstool? And that gnome??). Come on….I HAD to buy it!  The quilt label book I am hoping will encourage me to actually put labels on my completed quilts! I am very, very terrible about doing that! ( Unless it is a gift for someone). Seeing as these are iron-on I should have no more excuses. And finally, I found this cute little sign at a little shop nearby and just had to buy it to hang in my room.008Oh yes, absolutely true!

Until next time, happy creating!

  2. It’s from the book ALL IN A ROW, published by Martingale. You could buy it directly from Martingale.com, or probably from Amazon.uk. Just be aware that the first and second printings included errors, so don’t buy those editions! Martingale is offering free replacements of all those books, but it would be less hassle to get the corrected edition right away😉
