I had a great weekend, how about you? Did you get some time to yourself to do a few of those things on your list? Have you started Christmas shopping yet?
I’ve been neglecting my house for two months while I’ve worked on new patterns, so this weekend it got some well needed TLC. Who knew cleaning up and putting things away could feel so good?
I bought these wire baskets at Garnet Hill and I’m using them to store my wools. I like to see everything I have so these baskets are perfect! See the pastel wool bundles in the picture below? I bought those bundles at Holly Hill last week…hand dyed by Debbie Busby of Wooden Spool Designs. I fell in love with the soft colors of blue, pink and grey…wish I had bought more!
And now that my house is back in order I can move onto so many other things waiting for me…
Remember the story I told you about Jeaneane? Some of you sent in blocks for her and I haven’t forgotten about them. They are tucked safely in a drawer just waiting to be mailed to her. If you’d like to make her a block you still have time. Make a 8″ or 12″ block and send it my way. Your name will be entered in a drawing to win a great prize from Bunny Hill and Jeaneane will have quilt blocks to play with! I’ll be showing you some of the blocks I’ve received over the next few weeks and I’ll do the prize drawing on December 10th. Jeaneane will have the blocks by Christmas.
Next I’ll give you some sneak peeks of a new pattern I have coming in December called Raining Cats and Dogs in Redwork. I’ve been waiting for the Moda redwork fabric to arrive and keeping my fingers crossed that it arrives soon so I can start sewing the quilt together. I don’t often get to show you a work in progress so this should be fun!
Hugs to all of my blog readers! You are the best!
