He said,

"Dig a Hole"

LOL


That's what my hubby, Ron said when I told him that I was in the mood to sew today but my sewing room was still a disaster area. Actually he said, "so what; dig a hole and enjoy". LOL So, I followed his advice - managed to dig a hole and got busy!


Start time 9:00 AM - finish time 8:00 PM (a full day of sewing)



Last week I showed you my Strawberry Fields Jelly Roll cut and ready to sew. At the end of the day I had a small pile of 2 1/2" squares, three empty bobbins, an empty spool of thread, a partial flimsy (just need to sew the rows together) and a huge smile on my face. :-)


This pattern is called "Shortcake" by Cluck, Cluck, Sew - I think I'm the last person in blogland to discover her sweet patterns. You can order Allison's patterns from her in PDF and have them in your mailbox before you know it. Awesome customer service!

I hope your day was as blissful as mine - I really needed it. :-) Thank you for popping by to visit.


In Friendship!

Wendy said...

You have a smart husband, love the new pattern and the fabrics are just prefect. Strawberry Fields is a gorgeous line.
I've started a quilt you did a very long time ago and I've never forgotten it. Square Deal has been on my list since I saw yours. I put away the fabrics and now I've got a few blocks finished, it's very shabby looking. Thanks!

Monica said...

I really like it in that fabric!

I'm glad you found some time to sew. And I'm tellin' you...we need to have a messing quilting room contest. Everyone who enters has to pay $5-10. And the winner of the messiest room gets a professional organizer hired to clean up their mess...hahahaha!

sunny said...

I'm about to follow your advice and Dig a Hole. My sewing room was already a disaster, then I brought home all the stuff from my office and it landed in there. THen we had plumbling problems and a wet floor yesterday, so some extra stuff landed in there. I really really need to sew, so off I go! Gald your day was so productive, and you ended up with such pretties.

deb said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE the pattern....and Im so glad you had a good day and got to sew all day....after last week...you deserve it!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wheh - I thought he meant dig a hole to bury all your stuff in! Very cute quilt!

Becky said...

Glad that you dug your way in and out:)

Quilter Kathy said...

This is a beauty and is a pattern where the blocks could be sewn by a group and then squared up to the same size. So glad you had a chance to re-energize in the sewing room!

Sandra said...

Your lovely new quilt is an inspiration! Beautiful:)
