Oh, friends. School has started back and the black hole of work has opened wide. Wide, I tell you. However, I put my foot down and said, “I will sew. Even if it’s at 1:00 am on a Saturday.” We quilters have to do what we have to do. Also, a sweet student from last year came to see me on Thursday and this was our conversation:
Student: Have you been working on any quilts?
Me: Yes! Here are some pictures.
Student: I really miss talking about quilting.
So, in spite of work, I managed to make my husband’s weekend by doing this:
He was THRILLED to have me take over the living room. Somehow I wonder if the deadline to be out by Sunday night tells me his real feelings… I’m working away on a very special quilt and I can’t wait to send it to the other side of the world.
And, and, and – almost all of my ScrapBeeLicious blocks are in and I can’t wait to show you guys the finished quilt top. It is GORGEOUS. These bee mates of mine are SPECTACULAR. Now I just need to get started on Gwendellyn’s scrappy trip-along blocks! Which we all know means I’m going to want to make one now… great!
But, what would a crazy week be without a fabric purchase? Exactly, nothing but a bad week. So I turned this week into a win by ordering some Flea Market Fancy with the help of Michelle’s amazing gift card – and let me tell you, I’m smitten.
Denyse stays wrapped up in plastic. You know the drill.
Like your grandmother’s fancy couch.
I am so itching to cut into these beauties and I’m so ecstatic to add some more Denyse to my stash. Can someone please tell Denyse that she’s my girl?
Tomorrow I will announce the winner of my 100th Post Giveaway … stay tuned!
Happy Sunday, Happy Week, Happy Quilting!
