Have you ever..........

gone fabric shopping on line, put a bunch of stuff in the shopping cart, and then talked yourself out of it?

I so love the Bar Harbor line... and REALLY want to get it, and found a really cute, simple pattern for it... and just talked myself out of it.

I don't need it... I have so much fabric now that isn't being used... so I'm being smart .............. right????

HELP ME HERE PEOPLE!!!!

May Feast


Can you tell I forgot I had a bunch of pics on my camera???? These are some of my best gals from guild. We have a Feast in May each year, I love pot-luck, and of course we know quilters love to eat.

Anyway... just wanted to share. I shot a movie too... but I won't bore you with that.

Quilty Hugs!

Sundae Quilter




I love getting together with my Sundae Quilter group. It is so energizing... and definitely productive.

Here are some pics. Fran and Jan were cutting - we shared some 30's prints for our GFG project. Bonnie is working on her GFG also using 30's prints. Judie is making here GFG using floral prints. Pat is working on embroidering chickens and Belinda is working on a very bright BOM.

I love these gals!!!

One Flower Wednesday

I'm a little late in doing this. With school coming to a close my goal is to make it to June 10... then I'll think more on quilting.

Anyway, spending a day with my Sundae Quilters definitely helps put a little fabric time into the mix. I was able to get two GFG flowers made on Sunday.

So here is my first official post for One Flower Wednesday. If you are getting into using hexagons, please check out the group at Karen's blog. I'm seriously hoping this helps keep me on track.. only 100 more flowers to go!!!

Remember when.....

MTV was MTV.... music videos plain and simple.

I am sitting here working on my end of the school year plans and listening to my Itunes. The song "Don't come around here no more" by Tom Petty came on. This was always one of my favorite videos... a little weird, but I thought it was cool.

Enjoy!

One Flower Wednesday

I found an interesting group on Karen's blog; One Flower Wednesday. I am working on a Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt using 1930s reproduction prints. I told my three daughters that this will probably be a once in a lifetime event so they will have to fight over it when I'm gone.

Anyway, if you are interested in working on a GFG, this might be a great way to keep you motivated. Head on over to Karen's blog and check it out.

A pee my pants moment.......


May UFO Number

I'm sorry this is late. I wasn't even registering that May started over the weekend.

So once again, Kevin (I hope he doesn't quit his day job) has picked the number for us. It is # 3.

And thank you to our special guest star, Smokey..... obviously she shouldn't quilt her day job either.
