Spring Fever . . .

has turned into Spring Cleaning. Not a lot of sewing, but a lot of BLAH! So, unless you want me to show you all the dirty little corners of my house (and believe me . . . I'd love nothing more than to show you), you'll have to be content with some older things and some rambling.

First of all, I should catch you up on my bee. I've let you know about everything up to December, which was my month, but I have not told you about anything else.

This was the block I made in January for Cassie.

She asked for all pinwheels, but we could use any one we wanted. I LOVED the fabrics she picked. It made me think of the French Riviera. Have I ever been there? No. Do I know much about it? No. But the cool spring colors just made me feel the sea breeze in my face and a cool drink in my hand. LOVED IT! I can't wait to see the whole thing put together! I was so proud, I actually finished this one on time and packaged it up to mail out . . . and then it got lost in the clutter of my sewing room . . . so one more package was late. Sorry Cassie!

I haven't finished Meagan's block for February or Beth's block for March . . . and I'm sure I will receive April's fabric any day now. So what little sewing time I have left this week, I will be working diligently on these. I PROMISE, I'm turning over a new leaf RIGHT NOW!

That's it for now! If you don't hear from me soon, send search parties in the direction of the fabric pile in Richardson!

See ya!

Winner and Sew Saturday

Sorry it took so long, but I don't know how to close the comments in my blog, and I was hoping for a few more comments . . . but I can wait no longer. Thanks you guys for your comments. Fi and Abby, thanks for keeping me company! I'm not sure I can do this alone, so keep me updated with your stuff.

And now, drumroll please, . . . the winner is . . . Abby! I didn't take any pictures of the drawing, but I basically put the 3 names in a bowl and S pulled onefor me. Abby, I have a charm pack of Moda's Authentic for you I got at the Quilt Show! Look for an email later!


Next up, if anyone is in town, tomorrow is the Dallas Modern Quilt Guild's first official Saturday Sew! It will be Sew FUN! (ha ha, I know I'm not funny, but it's Friday. Cut me some slack!) Come join us!

See ya!

1 Year!

Today is my 26th birthday and my 1 year blog-a-versary! Hurray! In case you're keeping count, this is my 49th post, I have 4 followers, but 6 readers (according to the comments on my last post)! Not too shabby, huh?

I had a great birthday! My family (including the grandmother that taught me to quilt) all came down to go to the quilt show in Dallas this weekend. We had a GREAT time! Today, S's family came over, and we had a great big party! I don't have much to say about the weekend as I'm laying here on the couch, content and sleepy, and just wanting to stare out the window at the beautiful day outside!

Me, my SIL, my Mom and my Grandma at Market Center for the quilt show!

I have decided on a Birthday Resolution! (I figure, I'm so bad at New Year's Resolutions, I should make them on my birthday, as it is a new year to me!!!) I am overwhelmed at the number of UFO's in my possession! It's insane! I keep cleaning up the guest bedroom and finding all these half-finished projects I forgot about! So I'm going to work on them this year. I'm not saying I will finish them all, and I'm not saying I won't buy anything more, because we all know that it's impossible for me! But I am going to make a dent. Y'all are going to have to help me, though. I'm going to put a list up on the side-bar here, and list everything I'm supposed to be doing. It may take me a while to list everything, because it will take me a while to find it all, but once it's all up, I'll keep you informed on which ones I'm working on and how it's going. It should be everything I have bought or committed to before today (since I bought a ton of stuff yesterday at the show). If I decide to quit something, I'm going to explain it to you. If I buy something new, I'll have to justify it to you. You will have to keep me honest . . . will you help me?

As an advanced "thank you", I'll have a little give-away. Just leave me a little comment before Tuesday at Midnight telling me what you think about it, and I'll pick a winner on Wednesday!

See ya!
