Tuesday Ramblings & a Giveaway Winner

Scrappy blocks in progress
My company is gone and the house is quiet again.  I will not admit how late I stayed up making scrappy pieced things last night.   I will not admit that I don't know what I'm going to do with them either.

The giveaway - I was amazed everybody actually answered the question!  The winner was JMF who's favorite band in High School was Creedence Clearwater Revival.  I happen to be fond of some of their songs myself.   Her and her husband have a small buffalo herd, how cool is that?  I am envious of their chickens too, but I know I can have chickens if I want, so I should probably keep my mouth shut. 

Leslie Grainger's Pretty Paisley
I made a small order for some fabric from Equilter.com over the weekend- I'd never browsed them before but there was a particular fabric I was looking for that they carried, and I found they had a few color choices of Melody Miller typewriters and Madrona Road's memoir which has been out of stock anytime I was placing an order elsewhere.  They have some cute Japanese prints too, so although it's a bit hard to browse their online shop due to their oddly organized sections, I'll probably be back.

I was productive on Saturday while I had the house to myself - I pieced a back for a baby quilt, put a couple of hours into my Totally Groovy quilt, started a padded dining table cover (with NOT a lot of fabric planning ahead of time, which means it might not turn out - note to self, look for some books/articles about choosing color/print combinations) and even got some paper piecing worked on.

Two things that came out of the weekend, my lanyard from the game convention has a clip at the end, and although its not long enough to reach everything I need to use it for, I can easily release it, and it does reach my sewing machine just fine to clip things.  No more having to go fetch scissors, cause even though I have 4 small pairs, I usually have left somewhere I'm not.

Secondly, my husband brought home a plushie crab monster...they were giving them away "freeze dried" vacuum packed in plastic...  I'm pretty sure that its going to go sit up on a shelf in his room soon here.  It has scary teeth.

My list of in progress projects is getting out of hand, and my list of projects I WANT to do...phew.  I haven't started on Christmas projects yet and it's already September isn't it?

  1. I've wondered about that equilter site. They have some fun stuff in their sale section.
