"Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity."
Henry Van Dyke
Another week marked off the calendar. Monday saw Bean with double ear infections. Tuesday received word from two people I love that things in their part of the world were not well. Tuesday and Wednesday time spent with people I love. Thursday was catch up day.
And it's Friday.
Thursday also brought this
in the mail. Isn't that a beautiful bow and happy, green grassy paper!
Julie is participating in the Pillow Talk 2 also and this is what she made! Words can't even describe the way the colors and fabric remind me of the sunrise or sunset! It's just gorgeous!
I may not use it as a pillow it's so awesome as a wall hanging. I'm totally rethinking the family room now!
The back is just as cool as the front.
In the Swap, we could either send stuffed, or not. The closing on the pillow is so cool! The stitching on these little half circles, as well as on the front, is just too much fun!
Also in the package was this:
And we all know I was missing my own tape measure! How cool is this? (mine is not on the turtle, and the dog is sans measureing tape, so not sure where mine is)
Thanks Julie! I couldn't be happier!
I've been so inspired by the Incredible Shrinking Quilters' Bee ladies last month that I decided to continue making New York Beauty blocks for a quilt for hubby sweetness and I.
My first four sewn together. I know I should've waited to sew rows together, but then again, I'm not your conventional quilter! LOL
I'm hoping the colors and patterns sort of migrate their way around the quilt.
Work continues on the hexes, my pillow for Pillow Talk 2 is done, I haven't received March's block for the ISQB and I've signed up for STUD (Swap Til You Drop) for March. I was paired with Ansje.
We arranged a private swap on the side last year before Christmas and this is what she sent me.
Sew, you can see why I'm excited to be paired up with her this month! We have an alpahbet theme and my letter is "E". "Everyone who signs up for this theme will be randomly assigned a letter of the alphabet by me, and then you will make a quiltie representing that letter. Example: if you were giving the letter Q, then your mini could be a queen under a quilt."
Sew, I have some research and work to do! No rest for the wicked!
Don't forget to visit Amy for Friday Finish! Last week's finishes were just over the top cool! There are sew many talented women out there and you see some of the most beautiful and clever things! So make sure you stop by today!
Hope you all have a great weekend!
