I don't know about anyone else, but every time I turn around it's Wednesday!
I have had a record breaking week, 600+ comments on one post (proving that we all love giveaways), 100 new followers (thanks to the giveaway) and Mr. R and I joined a country dance class. We figured that if our son is going to be working in a restaurant that has a great saloon then we better know how to dance, so as not to embarrass him!
I received awesome mail from Katy I'm a Ginger Monkey. I won her Spring Carnival Template Set and she threw in some fantastic Basic Grey FQ's and a sampler set of Auriful thread (it's always fun to try new colors and weights of Aurifil). Thank you, Katy, this was a wonderful gift to receive in the mail.
I joined a new QAL on Flickr. It's the Retro Flower QAL put together by City Stitches and Sweet Diesel Designs . I was going to use some of my Flea Market Fancy, but I am not quite ready to cut into it yet, so I decided to go completely opposite everyone else in the group and use my stack of A Stitch in Color. Cutting with templates is a bugger, but the sewing of the curves is so easy with the Curved Piecing foot. This will be the third 60th birthday quilt I want to make this year for my very old friends (no pun intended).
I made this clutch using a new tutorial and a different kind of frame than I have made in the past. This is for a project I am working on that I have not shared about yet, but will soon. Isn't this a fun fabric? It's from a new line for Moda that will be coming out in the fall designed by my new blog friend, Brigitte. I'll be telling you more about these fabrics and the project I am working on for Brigitte in the near future.
I'm waiting for a delivery of some Kona solids and then I can finish the Granny Square quilt.
As usual, I am linking to Lee at Freshly Pieced.
And one more tiny bit of exciting information, I'M GOING TO SEWING SUMMIT!
