Spooling Around!



There's been very little sewing, stitching and/or quilting going on in my house. I'm not going to get philosophical and try to come up with a reason.......seriously, who cares.......just haven't felt like it. How's that for a very simple reason. :-)



On Monday I told Sinta that I didn't visit BOM Rehab because it appears that I may have forgotten how to use my sewing machine. LOL



Here's Sinta's response "hahaha! Well, I guess that is good news... I was afraid that you had been abducted by aliens and they wouldn't let you near a sewing machine because they had a fear of cotton!" ROFLOL - guess it could happen!



So, I haven't felt like sewing until today. There's been a bounce in my step because I'm really excited about this new pattern by Camille of Thimble Blossoms. I saw it on her website before Spring Market and knew I had to have it. Sweet P (Paulette) and Thelma love it, as well. It features the new adorable line of fabric called Marmalade by Camille and Bonnie (her mom) for Moda. I didn't go to Market so I don't have any Marmalade fabric - big sigh! :-)



However, I decided I simply can't wait for Marmalade to show up on the store shelves. I had a fat eighth bundle of California Girl by Joanna/Fig Tree Quilts for Moda and decided it would be perfect.



What do you think of my first four blocks?



Aren't they sweet?


I have 31 more spools to make so I'll be up bright and early tomorrow morning so I can start sewing again. Everything is cut and ready to sew!
WooHoo!!!!!

I appreciate your visit - come back soon.

In Friendship!

Sweet! My mojo returned suddenly this week, so maybe there is something in the air...or it is just too hot to do anything else! Enjoy.

Those are ADORABLE! I really am impressed that someone who doesn't want to sew produced something that makes me want to dash to the sewing machine RIGHT NOW! Well done!

Wow! I think I actually like California Girl better than Marmalade. Love it!
