Talkative Tuesday? (The first)

Thanks to Alicia Key for hosting the great giveaway (which I won!)  WAHOO!!!
You can check out what she is doing at her blog.  Pssst.  She only has a few followers...just sayin'.

Dee needed quilt shop therapy.  So Saturday, our whole (minus a college kid) families took us on a two quilt shop tour.  Well of course I couldn't let her shop alone!!!  These were my purchases.  I am still loving them!!  Afterward, we went to Cheeseburger in Paradise.  Dee's pick.  She has good taste, even if she has kept me for a friend for almost 16 years!!!  LOL!!

I have been working on getting my Paganelli Charm wallhanging done for the Blogger's Quilt Festival.  All that is left is to hand sew the binding to the back.  Should be ready by Thursday!!  Also made this test block for October's Sew Bee It.  (Looking down at my toes in shame).  I hope to have the real blocks done and in the mail by Friday.

Allowed myself a little time to enjoy some Henna Love.  Slow and steady right?

So that is what I have been up to, and why it has been so quiet around the blog.  I can't wait to get caught up so I can go look at some more beautiful quilts at the Blogger's Quilt Festival.  Must.have.self.control.




  1. what a fun win...just love the fabrics!!

  2. I will keep you as a friend for the next 16 too! The weekend was a highlight and supercharger...although between chemo, Nam flashbacks and elections...I seriously need a nap! LOL

    As always, anytime spent with "our" family is just such a blessing and I so wish we lived closer!

    Love you muchly and congrats today to us who wanted to celebrate so bady!


I love to hear your thoughts, and I try to respond. Thanks for sharing your time and encouragement!
