I just love Mondays. The kids go back to school, the hubs goes back to work and I have a fresh start to the week, a clean slate to fill with sewing goodness. After the last few weeks, I sure can use a clean slate! That's why I was so glad I read Candace at Saltwater Quilts' post today. She shared a link to a wonderful post by Mary Fons. If you have ever been filled with self doubt, racked with insecurity or subject to your own negativity, you need to read it. (here's the link). Better yet, print it, frame it and hang it on the wall! Thank you Candace and thank you Mary!!
The owner told me she had been keeping it for herself in the stock room, but decided it was time to let it go. Yes, I told her that it was going for $80 - $100 per yard on Ebay and Etsy, but she said she wasn't interested in "ripping people off." God bless her!! I bought two yards of each, and wanting to share my good fortune, posted it on Instagram. Several people asked me to get some for them, too. I left the store with over 50 yards of fabric!! I feel like I am running my own fabric shop!
My hat is off to the people that sell fabric on-line for a living. All that cutting and packaging is a lot of work!!
1. For Pete's sake, finish a quilt
2. Finish and mail Rockin' Robin
3. Mail all bee blocks
4. Make my center for the SURMA medallion along
5. Piece and quilt another panel of my Weekender bag
6. Finish aqua floral quilt top
7. Make my Sugar Block for August (and uh, July)
8. Exercise and be kind to myself
That's enough for this week!
Oh yeah, and just to prove that I have been sewing, a few pics to share...
Bee blocks for Trust Circle of do.Good Stitches.
Great Granny Square for Terry in Newbee Quilters, a Threadbias quilt bee. She asked for vintage and I was more than happy to deliver!! I adore this style! The fabrics are Lori Holt, Holly Holderman, Pam Kitty and Tasha Noel. We used Lori's tutorial from her charming blog, Bee in My Bonnet.
Hope you all have a fantastic week and Happy Sewing,
