I finished a really cool project for the Spicing Up the Kitchen swap I was in on Flickr. And guess what I did?! Took some awesome pictures and then formatted my memory card without uploading them! AAAAHHHHHH!! I've never done that before! At least my partner can take pictures for me. I hadn't wanted to post them yet, because I think a couple things I sent might have given away my secret identity. Soooooo, now I'm waiting
My friend Sara of Sew Sweetness started a Heather Ross quilt-along that I promised to be a part of. A lot of people are already finished (like Sara, productive-queen) and I have yet to start. Next week. Maybe, or the week after. And if you don't follow her blog yet, you should. She's amazing. She just started blogging a few months ago and has so many cool projects and great pattern reviews. Really, go check her out.
I also started a non-sewing project with a group of friends that is helping me get back into the groove of taking pictures (not on auto) and I'll be able to share more about that soon. That is if you are even interested!
Here's two more quilt blocks I finished (late) for last year's bee.
And remember that post I wanted to write about what I learned while I took a break (2 months ago!), yep, haven't done that either.
The upside? I am getting more sleep, I've started working out, and the sun is shining more! YAY!
Oh and I FINALLY got around to making one of these cake plates.
|ask me about how I didn't know the leprechauns were coming and then we made a trap and didn't catch them but they left these nice cupcakes because they had already given out all their gold. yep, mom of the year, right here.|
Actually two. I *heart* them so much!
|Seriously so easy. Candlestick holder (thrifted) + cute plate from Marshall's + gorilla glue. Total cost? approx. 5$|
and this little crumbsnatcher will be 1 next month!! REALLY? Where has the time gone?
|I love her happy face. She is a such a joy and has won us all over, without question. And can you believe that sweater? We rescued it from certain neglect at a thrift store before she was born. Hand crocheted and never worn. We love it.|
Oh yes! And then there's the amazing antique store I went to selling all things distressed in white, turquoise and green! AMAZING. I need to tell you about that too.
Soon. I promise. And next week? I'll show you some progress on my HR quilt (because I haven't started yet and need someone to keep me honest). And maybe we should have a sew & tell in March! I almost forgot!
Thanks Kim, for chatting today and telling me you missed my posts. Hope this one tides you over.
