This Week in 2012, week 36

I had so many fun things happen this week and got in a lot of sewing.  Each day deserves a separate blog post.
I will tell you about one and leave you sitting on pins and needles until I tell the rest. Don't hold your breath or anything, my life is not THAT exciting.
I am officially a Mouthy Stitches 2 member. I knew the sign ups were looming in the beginning of September somewhere, so I had been frantically checking the Flickr site several times a day because I did not want to miss a spot in this more than fun swap.
Friday night we had a fun night with friends to celebrate friend Monika's birthday. After getting home at midnight I decided to check the Flickr site and noticed that the swap mamas had made new mosaics...hmmm, something was a brewing in the United Kingdom. So I woke up bright and early Saturday morning and sure enough round 2 was open for sign ups. 
I was accepted and have made my inspiration mosaic...ok, I made it after reading the rules but before I was accepted and I can tell you there is some major talent and inspiration going on at this Flickr site. 
I went a little overboard with my mosaic because how can you pick just a few favorites when there are so many lovely quilty things on Flickr?
We will be making a simple market bag tote, but with a kick of quilty goodness on one side.
Here is my inspiration mosaic:

If you are wondering why I am so happy to be in this group, let me leave you with one more mosaic...

Bras Galore

This should explain the fun we have in this group and most of us have never met in person. It's just one big happy time.
Thanks for stopping by,

Haha! Oh, that bra mosaic. Think if I were to just post that one as mine it would be accepted??

We are a very sedate group over at Mouthy Stitches and I have no idea what you are talking about. Us mamas in particular take no nonsense. We are serious sewist.

Yeah right!! So please to see you have posted Rhonda's mosaic for the world to see.
