It's All About ME :-)

I miss my stitching, sewing, happy moments in my sewing room, etc. Basically, I simply miss ME.

I've made a decision - I'm going to spend more time doing what makes ME happy and try to put all the negativity in my life behind me.

I hope you're prepared for more blogposts from me because I'm planning to be around more. I miss YOU so much!

I have some sweet stitching planned. These are the monthly free fruit/veggie designs from Bird Brain Designs. Printed on Printable Solvy ready to adhere to dishtowels. Red apple, green asparagus, red beets, & red cherries; which is YOUR favorite?




Sinta from The Pink Pincushion has come up with an excellent idea to help us (ME)work on our (MY) ignored BOM projects. WooHoo!!!!



I started the Fat Quarter Shop 2011 Designer Mystery BOM with a vengeance and then fizzled right out (so typical for me - lol). I found the first three blocks and the kit for block four. Will work on that one tonight. :-)



I seriously LOVE this fabric - so many sweet prints make it very difficult to pick a favorite. It's fat eighths of Pam Kitty Morning - YUMMY! I have a project idea so I'm hoping to start cutting this week. Blissful sigh!

Tomorrow I will announce the March winner of Christmas Through the Year - today it's all about ME.

I appreciate your visit - come again soon.

In Friendship!

Love the PKM fabrics and your embroideries are cute cute cute! I'm partial to the cherries. Hope you find lots more time to sew. It is mental health therapy and you need to take care of you - cause lets face it we pretty much have to take care of ourselves- LOL! Happy stitching!

Vivian said...

I adore the unique design of asparagus, the straight lines plus that cute, curvy, layered end. Coincidentally, we had our first meal of asparagus today.
Find all the "me" time you can and enjoy it. Looking forward to watching all the projects you'll be working on soon.

Allie said...

GOOD FOR YOU!!!!!! I'm in the same place right now - I'm behind you all the way, I'll be cheering you on, girl!

Cheryl said...

Hip hip horray for you....we will love having you around more for sure. (((hugs)))

Shakerwood said...

I would love some "me time". Wish we lived closer so we could hide ourselves away and sew the day away, sip some tea and jabber about all those loved ones that drive us bonkers!!

Deb said...

You've been missed too! Glad to hear that you're going to find some "ME" time, it's deserved.

Quilter Kathy said...

Excellent decision! I heartily endorse your new commitment, and not just for selfish reasons :)

Dirt Road Quilter said...

Welcome back! You are missed too and I'm doing the Snoopy Dance that you are back in the game. Sometimes life just whisks you away for a bit, but stitching is good therapy...good for the soul. Don't think I can choose a favorite from your stitching patterns...they will all be super cute!

Melanie said...

We haven't chatted in a while--- I do love your blocks....Your Christmas projects rock....Keep it up...

Sherri said...

"Me" time is so important Darlene...hope you get lots of sewing and stitching time soon!

QuiltNut Creations said...

Good for you Darlene, it's important to take care of ourselves as well as others.

I love the asparagus! Those are going to be adorable when finished.
