A little here and there.

Got this hanging finally!  It took a quick trip to Lowes for new hardware.  Yes, there is Amy Butler in there!!

I am working on quilting this.  It will go on our piano as part of our dining room update.

Yes there is a little Amy Butler here!

Finished this baby quilt top yesterday.  It was supposed to be pink and orange, but so many of the prints had a touch of yellow that it showed up for the party too!!  Love it, and wish that I had enough of these fabrics to make it bigger.  Sigh.  I guess that they can't all be for me!!

At least five Amy Butler prints in there!  She is playing with Jennifer Paganelli, Sandi Henderson, and Denyse Schmidt.  This top will go into a little pile of ufos just for babies.  Then when the need arises, I can quick quilt one up!!!

Hope that you visit all the Friday Finishes by clicking on the Sew & Tell button on my left side bar!

My Sewing Machine is Back!!!!

And yes, I did the happy dance!!!  Finished the little remaining quilting on this and whipped up the binding.  All I have left is to hand sew the binding down and wash off the marking lines.  These were Siggys from the Modern Siggy swap (first round) and they are going to live on my dining room wall!  I will post pictures when it is hanging!!

Also started a project that includes an Amy Butler print so I can participate in a contest next week.  It helps that it was something that I needed to do for my room update!!

Be sure to click on the sew & tell button to see all the other sew & tell finishes, and get details on the Amy Butler contest!!!

As a rule, Mondays are days that I have to work at Joy.  Not this past Monday!!  These came from Amy, as a result of a comment I made on one of her blog posts.  Love them, and snatched the last two out of her etsy shop.  She sent me a hot tip via email that she now has more fabric in so more of these may be showing up soon in her shop!  Oh, and as I was working on the links for this post, I noticed she has some great Christmas prints.

Then, Monday evening I got to take a VIP out to a quilt shop and then dinner!!!  This was my indulgence, Anna Griffin's The Lizzie Collection (the words fabric is I think, Make Life).  I first saw them here.  Thanks Amanda Jean for inspiration! 
The VIP chose the restaurant, and we enjoyed our fortune cookies!!  The top two were hers, the bottom one was mine.   Great Monday, much Joy!

Speaking of Joy, she is waiting on me to go get her!!!  Yay!!!  Maybe (but not likely) I will have a Friday Finish this week!!!  Double Yay!!!

Blessings and goldfishy kisses!

Just a little UFO.  Yup, you read the year right.  I only have to finish the border, simple.  Should be done before I go to bed tonight.  Doesn't even match the decor anymore.
Still no Joy.  Sigh.  Next handiwork project, if I live...

For more excitement, please go check out all the other Sew & Tellers (use the button on the left).  Most of them have sewing machines! ;0)

Just Want to thank Randi for the fabulousness that she picked out for me.  You see, I have always been tempted with what online quilt shops call "scrap bags".  But, I always opt out before clicking buy, I am too afraid to get the bottom of the barrel, nobody wants it, butt ugly, fabric.  Well, Randi has this great etsy shop, and I have purchased beautiful fabrics from her.  In her shop she has listed fat quarters that are extras.  I finally went for it.  I was purchasing the pink Jennifer Paganelli Loopy Vintage Floral, and for not so much I let myself get this surprise!  Wow, she picked out these fat quarters for me with only a couple of designer names dropped!!  I love them!!!!!  Thanks Randi!!!!!
Be sure to visit her blog too!!!

Randi always puts these great charms (bonus!) in her packages too!  You can tell by how many I have, that I have done business several times at Fresh Squeezed Fabrics!!! 

On the sewing front, still no machine!  I am going to have to drag my old Kenmore out of storage!!  (Anyone got a crane that I can borrow?)
