I'm back! I'm sorry if I misled you into believing that life was not good - I just had to be away for a few days to take care of some personal business that needed attention. Everything is fine - thank you so much for your kind words and messages!
Yesterday I managed to do some sewing and finished all the baskets using my Susan Branch fabric. I'm ready to lay them out however I'm not sure what to use for a setting fabric, as the baskets are set on point. I need to play a bit and then get busy!
A little box arrived on Friday with two Moda Jelly Rolls - Sweet Baby Jane and Holly Jolly. Need to find projects for these adorable prints.
And, yesterday I had a wonderful surprise! For my birthday, Buster (my boyfriend - giggle) gave me a BOM project from The Quilted Crow called Vintage Charm from this book "Simply Vintage" by Blackbird Designs. There was a little confusion and an incorrect BOM was sent and finally yesterday the first two blocks arrived. Now, I'm just hoping that I'll be able to follow Vicky's lead and do these blocks as they arrive. I'm really excited about this one and the fabric they've selected is yummy so I'll get busy in a day or two. :-)
A Little Whine!
I've been saving many comments that many of you have left on my blog with good intentions of responding to each and everyone of them. The list is over 500 comments and e-mails and I'm finding this task quite daunting. So, I'm here to whine and ask your forgiveness as I don't think I'm going to be able to fulfill my promise to respond to each and every one of them. I have a new game plan for responses so hopefully this won't happen again!
Thank you for the birthday wishes! I appreciate your kind words!
