Last thing you thought you would ever see on my site huh? The day before Judy admits herself, voluntarily, to the hospital and gets put to sleep?? Maybe I should have opened with a death mask or something! *s* But that's not what the happy dance is for folks! It's for the 6AM "gotta be at the hospital time slot"! Y-e-s, you heard me right! Be here at 6 am...I'M FIRST people. 7:30 time to start. First in line for surgery, no waiting all day while I pass out from lack of food or water, no waiting all day while I pass out from a-n-x-i-e-t-y!! I'll still be asleep when I get there. I won't even be hungry! Thank you! Thank you! Now if only my heart would stop beating through my chest I'd be an even happier gal!
I have tons to share and stuff to show. I won't be on for a few days so this will have to keep you all entertained for the time being. I'm sure all my fellow crazy bloggers will have more than enough posts for you to read and keep you busy. I have 3 stitcheries ready to be worked up that should keep me busy for a while. A new project that I showed last, 2 months from Four Seasons, and a stitchery center for the SLOL BOM. Plus I have scads to do on the machine.
First up on the completed list...TaDA! My first Patriotic 4th project! All done and ready to be trimmed and have the backing and a red check binding put on. I don't even think I have to quilt this one since it's only 12 inches square. I might take a few stitches inside the star, or around the teapot or outside binding. Thanks to Sharon for this little beauty. She showed the picture from Country Loft and I drew it up. The pattern it came from is made by Donna Yackey and it's a whole quilt.
Yesterday morning I finished the last section on my 30's string quilt top! God I love these bright little cheery fabrics! If you like string quilts you really ought to try one. I didn't use any backing and it turned out super. I could see this in all sorts of colors, even lovely solids. Shouldn't take but a half hour to quilt and then add the binding.
I've gotten mail all week at my house too! Today they UPS man dropped off this little bundle of sunshine. Aren't they fabulous? Just like a little drop of sunshine! These are the new Little Darlings 6 collection of FQ's. Just yummy!OH, I need to answer some questions. First someone asked before if I had a long arm. Nope very short arms! LOL! No, I just use my trusty Bernina. I'd kill for a real longarm but I live in a condo and we like sleeping in a bed.
Second this arrived today, the fabric for my new 1800's quilt and sorry to neglect you and not share the name of it. Bad Judy. It's made by Andover and in the Jo Morton Necessities line. Now it's an old line so you will have to scrounge around for it. I had to hit 2 places. That's generally how my luck runs, a day late and a dollar short. Here it is ready for me to get my rump moving on some of the blocks.Another package brought Carol's swap 9 patches and P9P's. So sweet and pretty. I think I have about 65 -9 patches now and over 100 P9P's.Then of course, the last package...which arrived first actually, early in the week, was a guilty pleasure. Okay, so I know I'm supposed to save money, but it's not really my fault when they keep popping up over there on the site and begging to be bought. Honest...it says BUY ME right under their names! Besides, I'm done for a bit now......right after my special order Easter Annie arrives. I'll see you all in a few days. I'll pop open the Mac and check up on you all from time to time, so behave. OH...one last thing. Thanks so much for all the answers about the fabric round-up. I think I do the same thing mostly but I need a super clean up. Mostly I think I need to do something with all the fabric that I bought years ago that I no longer would ever use. Stuff that's fine, but so far from my taste now. I'll have to do some sorting and searching and I'll make sure to share all the results right here!
