Bad blogger! Bad, Bad, Blogger, am I. So sorry!!! This has just been a weird week and I didn't feel like I had much to really blog about! So I apologize if you've been checking in.
Earlier in the week it was actually hot. And I still refused to turn on the AC...so there was no stitching to be done....the thread stuck to my fingers! So there wasn't much progress...but I did get quite a bit in this weekend on the Blackbird Designs Loose Feather Mystery-that's-not.....I think I can get it done this week if I really put some time in!
I'm on to Part V now! So the end is near! I do really like the vintage look of this one a LOT. Am already dreaming of the molding for this one, and I love how it's horizontal.
I had a three day weekend this weekend, which explains the stitching progress. On Friday, I went with Miss Twyla to a country open house in an old school house out in the middle of nowhere and found some lovely little treasures...then we went to a good old-fashioned estate tag sale...where you have to take a number to gain entry in to the house. We got there in good time though...no need for a number. And I again found some goodies. From there we went to a local G-Willy's and found a few more things that needed to come home. Sorry---no pics...but I'm sure you get sick of seeing pics of knick-knacks and orphaned pottery! :o)
You may remember this from my last post...
and LAST weekend I whipped the quilt top right out....
Hubs said it looked like I was laying out our dish towels and sewing them together. LOL That one turquoise blob looks out of place, but trust me...there are a few pieces in there that have that same turquoise, so it melds together nicely. Just doesn't photograph so hot!
I had big plans...BIG plans....to get that sucker basted and quilted and the jumbo chestnut ric-rac applied all by the end of this weekend. Well...what do they say about the best laid plans? The quilt is still in the state you see up there, except it's not out on the grass! :o) But I do hope to get it all done in the next few days! So if you don't 'hear' from me, I'm toiling away in the sewing room!!
To make up for what's certain to be a little silence (again)...let's have a giveaway! Wooohoo! A Moda Fabrics giveaway!! I wanna give someone their OWN fat quarter pack of these...

And...if you post a link to this on YOUR blog...leave me ANOTHER comment telling me you've done that, and you'll get two entries! I'll use Random Number Generator to pull a winner next Sunday! So there's lots of time to tell your friends and get your entry in! Moda Fabrics sunny summery April Cornell fat pack could be yours!!
