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.
