I've been busy sewing for Joanna with the gorgeous fabrics of Mill House Inn...projects I can't share yet! So for now, I'll just have to share a few of the other things I got finished this week. I love Anne's Tisket a Tasket free block of the month quilt, and August's "Picnic Time" is one of my favorites. I still need to find four heart-shaped pink buttons--one for the top of each cupcake and one for the top of the block. I think the ladybug is adorable!
The 2009 Designer Mystery Block of the Month from Fat Quarter Shop came this week, and I couldn't wait to get started! This month's block was designed by Margot of The Pattern Basket Blog, and it is stunning!
I'm making two blocks each month--one with the Glace' that comes with the pattern, and a second one from my stash of Prairie Paisley, American Primer, and Flag Day Farm.
Oh, and this lovely bundle of goodness came in the mail this week! I had a birthday in July and patiently (well, not really--I wasn't patient at all) saved my birthday money for some Simple Abundance...any guesses on how long before I untie the bundle and start working with these fabrics?
One more thing...stay tuned...some super exciting news is coming to my blog this week! I can't wait to tell you all about it!
