I am in love! Yes, I admit it. I fell head over heels in love with….. Continue reading
Happy Wednesday! ( I can’t believe it’s Wednesday already! Where do the days go?!) I had every intention of turning today into a “Quilt Day”. There weren’t too many things on my “to do” list, and with everyone out of the house today it seemed like a perfect little indulgence 🙂
Now it is past 11 already and I haven’t even looked at any fabric today! Instead I have exercised, bought ( very few) groceries, purchased stamps, done a load of laundry, and worked on some job-related items. All good things, don’t get me wrong, and they all needed to get done, but THIS is why I NEVER get any quilty stuff DONE! ( YES, that is really the reason~ it has nothing at all to do with me surfing the web, or getting drawn in by Pinterest, or getting caught up in a magazine article~REALLY!)
I just wanted to share some quick pictures of what I have been up to these last few days:
Remember my little UFO I found last week while cleaning up my quilt space? I big-stitched a big scallop in blue floss around the outside, but decided it needed a little something more. So, button collection to the rescue! I am adding an antique button in each scallop and I think that will give my little quilt the exact right touch! Pretty soon I will pop this one in the washer and dryer and anxiously await the final look..I do hope it comes out all nice and crinkly and looking a little worn~ that is what I always aim for!
My table runner that I started last week with my gorgeous new fabric findis awaiting some quilting. I did decide to add some pieced blocks in the corners. I think those will add a nice touch.
The block pattern came out of one of my favorite sets of books: Around the Block with Judy Hopkins. I will share more about these books in a future post…I absolutely L O V E them and they deserve a blog post.( Just look at all those sticky notes sticking out from the book, all marking some blocks I HAVE to make someday!)
Well, that is all ….I’m off to do some quilting now…yes, really….just as soon as I ….hmmmm, maybe today won’t be a quilting day after all.
I hope YOU get to have some crafty time today! And remember: “Do something every day that can’t be undone!” ( The Mother’s Almanac)
Until next time,

Do you remember that I complained about having lost my sewing mojo after the holidays? I tried re-organizing my room and even installed a new and improved design board. That helped a little bit, but I was still lacking that feeling of utter Continue reading
Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you are all spending the day with someone special, whether that be a spouse, or a friend( even the furry kind!), or a family member. I am spending my day Continue reading
It is creeping up on Valentine’s Day so I thought it would be fun to Continue reading
Sometimes it is hard to fit in creative time when you have home/family/job responsibilities, don’t you find? I don’t know about you all, but I can get awfully Continue reading
