The "Magic Beans"
*
I've been searching for the "Magic Beans" - you know, the ones that would work their 'magic' on my lack of interest in sewing/quilting. I haven't been searching hard because I figured they would eventually show up. LOL

Well, guess what? They're here - woohoo - this may just be the Magic Beans I've been seeking. It the Simple Things Quilt Along featuring two versions of a delightful pattern. My good friends Carol and Kelly have put their talents together to bring us this fabulous project.

Fabric requirements have been posted on their respective blogs and next week they will post the cutting instructions. The idea of this quilt along is to enjoy the journey - keep it simple - no pressure - just fun! My attention span is not very good these days I hope I don't lose interest before I even select fabric. LOL

I hope you plan to join us!

Thanks for popping in to visit - come back soon I'm having a party - can you guess what we'll be celebrating?



In Friendship!

Carol and Kelly have really made some pretty quilts to share with all of us! I'm hoping to find some time to play along....who knows...I may surprise myself! I'll look forward to seeing your fabric selection...isn't that the hardest part anyway? Oh and magic beans...when we were kids we would buy them at the 5 and dime. I think they came from Mexico...some sort of bean with a bug or worm inside that made it move...maybe they were dancing beans? Whatever...you reminded me of a favorite childhood silly toy. Hope hubby and mom are doing well...I keep sending out prayers you know!
