It is Friday again, friends.
I'm not sure where your week went, but I'm still looking for a huge chunk of mine!
Seems there's so much to do, most of it the same thing ala Ground Hog Day, and never enough time to get it all done. Plus, do the things I really want to do!
Having it lighter earlier in the morning is a huge motivation though!
Make sure you click on the Sew & Tell Button (down lower on the left hand side of the page) to see some beautiful things being created by some very talented people!
Wednesday saw my mother in love over to cut some squares out for Baby Quilts. A group of dedicated and loving women meet once a month at a local church to choose fabric, cut it out, piece together and then quilt. These quilts get sent all over the world for little boys and girls living in orphanages! Children who are warmer and maybe a little bit less lonely because of the huge hearts these women have!
She wouldn't let me photograph her face (now maybe I'm more related to her than just marriage!), but here are her happy, helping hands and her garden basket full of fabric ready to be cut!
What an awesome way to make the world that much smaller and less mean.
Huge hugs from women they will never meet.
Prayers for safety and love that I hope come true!
Over our bed hangs a cross stitch I made for hubs and me. It's a heart made of vines with flowers (of course) and a bird with three little eggs in her nest. I love hearts!
This week, I discovered Dottie Angel and fell in love with her "Perfectly Pixerly" heart projects. I was
surfing flickr doing research for C-man's schedule next year, when I just happened to come across her pictures and then her blog.
How many times a week can you fall in love with a new idea or be inspired to try something new before you can no longer deny you probably have a type of quilty ADD?
Oops. What are these and how did they get on my cutting mat?
sew digging the green print, a vintage fabric snowbird found for me!
And they just magically hopped onto my sewing machine. Where did that cute little brown check fabric come from?
Eeks! There's more!
Sew now, I have this beautiful block. The sashing is from fabric I swapped some of my polka dot sheet stash for. Penny rocks! Some of you asked what the fabric is, I have an email in to her to find out for us. 'Cause I need more! I will quilt and bind this as a wall hanging for the house (maybe the family room when it's finished!).
Danged if I'm not amazed! This morning I woke up and this
was on the cutting mat. U.M.M.M.M. Can I blame it on sleepwalking?
I did finish Ansje's mini quilt for the STUD and will be mailing it. I'll share pictures when she gets it, 'cause I'm not sure she doesn't lurk here now and again.
I also have 6 completed blocks for the vintage sheet quilt done. So there. I'm not totally all over the place not finishing other things before starting new ones!
Hope you all have a gorgeous weekend!
