Friday Ta-Das! :-)

I had a very productive Friday!

Finished Simple Pleasures from Comfort and Joy by Brenda Riddle @ Acorn Quilt and Gift Company. I used Sweet Baby Jane by Me and My Sister Designs/Moda and a sweet deep pink pin dot by ?. I'm sorry for the tacky picture but it's the best I could do. Look who managed to get into the picture - THIMBLES! LOL

My sweet DH, Ron insisted that I step out of my sewing room long enough to go to dinner. We had Chinese food at a nearby favorite restaurant - YUMMY!

Spent the evening tracing stitchery projects. I traced three more Polka Dot Girls - haven't worked on that project in a very long time. And, I traced my first Truly Scrumptious block. Look! There's Thimbles again! LOL
Today is National Quilting Day so there has to be more sewing today - woohoo! It'll be a Simplicity day! I hope that you're going to spend today with your needle and thread, too.
Don't forget to leave a comment below - giveaway coming Sunday evening when all my doings will come to an end. :-)
Thanks for stopping by - come again!
In Friendship!

edit: Karen thank you for correcting the name of the fabric - it is Sweet Baby Jane. I've been doing a ton of sewing for Me and My Sister Designs with Strawberry Lemonade so it's on the brain. Thank you so much! :-)

Gorgeous ! I love pretty colours. You have started me off looking for that sewing tin from a few posts ago. I haven't found it but have managed to spend some money buying other ones - lol !

Karen said...

Hmmm, I think the My Sister & Me fabric is Sweet Baby Jane. I bought a couple charm packs of it and some yardage.

The quilt is very sweet!

Paula said...

Sooooo pretty!!! I'm glad I quickly peeked at my bloglines before heading to the sewing room! I love those polka dot girls...my stitchery skills have much room for improvement so I'm working on improving with some easy primitive style things before attempting anything so complex :) Have fun today!!!

Linda said...

So pretty, that's one I've had my eye on as well, such a simple layout but so pretty with the right fabrics, and your's are just perfect.

Very pretty quilt! Lots of room for some pretty quilting. Thimbles looks so cute and matches the spring feel of the quilt. Of course she had to show up!

Valerie said...

Your new quilt is so soft and sweet, just in time for spring. And thimbles looks so adorable next to it. Look at all those stitcheries all traced and ready to go, I don't even have my next one traced yet.

Such fun. Love the colors with the white.

Thimbles sure does get around. That is a wonderful quilt, and you
definitely have been productive.
Happy Quilters Day and St. Patty's Day tomorrow.

I am loving what you sewed - it turned out very, very pretty! I am looking forward to seeing the Polka Dot Girls all stitched up - they are sew cute!! Thimbles is enjoying her (his?) wabbity self, isn't he (she?)? And, so are YOU!!

Thimbleanna said...

Aw, dang it! I've been so busy I missed your drawing! Love the quilt. And that Thimbles is really a camera hog. I'm pretty sure he didn't learn that from his birth mother LOL!
