My Blog List
My sonny wrote this word all by himself.. He saw it in a book a few days before. It cracks me up! And he got the spelling right. ahahaha I keep it nearby b/c it makes me laugh. I feel like some days, I make so many silly mistakes, I should laminate this and wear it as a badge. hahaa
Also I've been making progress with some blocks lately.
Envelope #3 Taking Names swap blocks done in shades of brown with the provided blue background:
Envelope #4 finished last night, black and white with bright yellow background:
Time to start on envelope #5. Four more to go, but three weeks to do them.
Made one more block for the impromptu quilt last night, here it is before being dissected:
I went around and around with the choice for background fabric for this, and so far I'm just so-so with it, it's not too exciting.. :/ But I'm interested to see how it looks in the end, and I think it will go with my Bro and SIL's decor so fingers crossed.
In exciting news, Riley Blake pinned my heart block as the cover pic for their "Mystery Blocks February" board on Pinterest..I was scrolling through their Pinterest boards one day and saw my block. What?! Such a minor thing, but so fun!
Also, Lynne @ Lily's Quilts wrote a post about her flickr group, and included Jumbo Jack.. so flattered. And my Sugar Block Club block appeared in Amy's post over at Stitchery Dickory Dock. As if this wasn't enough excitement, last week, my Rainy Days and Mondays quilt top was featured over at Sewing Barefoot for getting the most views. It's so fun to be surfing around online and suddenly see something you've made. Do you agree? Or am I just a big ole' dork? Or shall I say nincompoop. ;)
In other happenings, my hub hung the valance I stitched up last week and now I'm itching to get some other things fixed up in there.. I will be sure to post pics when it's "all done" but I'm sure it will be a while.
And.. don't stray too far away b/c I'm planning a big giveaway soon to celebrate passing 600 followers. How did this happen?! It still blows my mind, but I appreciate all of you who follow along, and stop by with your sweet comments.
Hope you're having a great weekend!

Not only did Riley Blake feature your block, they also commented on it - you are a crafting rockstar now girl! You are not the only one who gets excited to see others pinning or posting your work, it's a bit of a thrill, isn't it? Your son's handwriting is just adorable, definitely one you must keep.
Lol, I can vividly remember my mum trying to teach me the word scrumptious, which was in a book I was learning to read when I was 4, who on earth vets what words appear in kids books?!
Busy, busy on the block front, hope the impromptu quilt grabs you soon...
