Don't forget ... tomorrow's the last day to get in on my Declutter Now! book giveaway -- check it out HERE!! I've really enjoyed reading the comments that have been posted -- and Sherry and Lindon have, too! :)
I thought I'd successfully kicked the crud . . . but no, it's back. I think this is going on four or five weeks now! I'm tired, tired, TIRED of it! Anyone know a cure? I'm open to anything! LOL!
I did have a couple of mailbox happies to brighten my days this week. First up was this darling little book from Angie, over at A Quilting Reader's Garden.
She'd e-mailed me and said her first winner never responded and I was second in line, was I interested. Ummmm, yes!!! I was even more delighted when I opened the book ... there are some sweet projects in it -- but these two *really* caught my eye:
Aren't they PRECIOUS?!! I'm a sucker for blue and yellow combinations! Not to mention button embellishments and yo-yo's. And the daisies are too cute!
Then today I had a little surprise happy waiting for me . . .
A fabric squishy from Sharon over at Vroomans Quilts! That pink is seriously beautiful. And check out the flower panel . . .
I wish I could say that since my last post I'd wisely spent some time in the quilting bunk room, restoring order.
As you can see, that's *so* not the case. In fact, I think it probably looks worse! It rather looks like a fabric store exploded. I started a basic crazy quilting course (again, compliments of StitchMAP -- I *love* this group) and spent Monday evening (and probably some of Tuesday, too) tossing through my fabric stash bins, trying to find the perfect fabric combinations for my first projects . . .
I finally settled on these three combinations -- after a lot of auditioning (which included wailing and gnashing of teeth and pulling of hair and flinging of fabric). I think it was worth the angst. Here's my first block:
Of course, the embellishment part comes on down the line. For this first part, I just got to insert some lace. I had this sweet little daisy lace on hand that just kind works perfectly, don't you think? I can't wait for further embellishing assignments!!
Today I'm headed to Ellie's ... I probably need to stop and buy one of those germ masks. Because I'm going and snuggling with my baby girl! That's a sure cure for what ails ya' -- hope y'all have a great day, too!
