My Blog List
First, the sewing, then some newsy things. On my design wall (er, carpet) today is a UFO. :) After Jumbo Jack, I was dying to start something new, but I'm glad I didn't. I've missed this one. The Rainy Days and Mondays quilt. Having fun sewing some of the diamonds together. I can't get enough of this fabric with all of the dots and the umbrellas. I kind of hoarded it for a while.
Here they are laid out in the floor, trying to figure out the placement.
Such a cheery line of fabric.
Onto the newsy things.
One of my sponsors, Skye Reve Fabrics is having a super-huge, so-many-prizes-you'll-pass-out giveaway right now. When you're done here, you'll want to head over there to their blog. The link is right there in my sidebar below the button. And.. most especially if you're the mom of a little girl, or know any little girls that are special to you, you'll want to enter.. so many cute prizes! Even a $100 gift cert. to Skye Reve!
Second, my friend Lisa at Lisa Lisa and the Quilt Jam brought to my attention a Block of the Month for 2013 over at Stitchery Dickory Dock. And get this.. it's only $7.95 for the entire year. How cool and affordable is that? It's called the Sugar Block Club.
Third, I just found out this morning about Riley Blake's Mystery Block of the Month for 2013 that is FREE. :) And, there is an instructional video on their blog. :) The first block is chevrons..so cute!
Last but not least, we hit the dog park this weekend for some Buster fun!
And discovered that he will now do some of the things on the agility course without his leash on!
There was some playing with other dogs, too.. until one of them got feisty with him, and we brought him to a tree to settle down.. but the dog still wouldn't leave him alone!
So we took him back into the agility area. All of the barking scared A. Who spent the rest of the time here. With his faithful guardian. :)
Time for a family photo.
p.s. linking up with my friend Jen for Monday Mischief, and Design Wall Monday
LOVE your big black baby! He's adorable! I started the Riley Blake 2013 quilt today by doing the chevron block. I love these because I can do a block each month. I love Rainy Days fabric too. I don't have any left though. So fun! I did a bad thing with my chevron block. In the middle I did 2 rows from the same value fabric. I don't even know what I was thinking but I had gone so far....Let's keep in touch! Cheery wave! Bev
Looks like Buster was having fun on the course. Good to see the dog park has one. One day I want a big enough back yard to build my dogs an agility course. These would be the dogs I don't yet have because I don't yet have enough space for them.
Cute fabric. Looking forward to seeing the diamonds sewn together
it's going to be a gorgeous quilt! Are they folds in the pieces or have you stitched two pieces together and exactly matched the pattern?
I didn't realise that dog parks were so much fun - Archie would love to revisit his agility training days! Is there a see-saw? That was his favourite!!
