Flying by



Life seems to be screaming ahead at break neck speed. Between gardening, running the kids to clogging, or Girl Scouts, or May pole dancing practice, housework, making soap, pulling weeds, watering in the greenhouses, walking the dogs and folding laundry I have nary a second to sew. I haven't worked on my pinwheel quilt in weeks.

I did, however, manage to go through my fabric stash last night and make a stack of fabric I either need to swap or sell as there are a few new fabric lines that I am dying to get my hands on. (I have Moda Roman Holiday. Anyone? How about a few bits of Flea Market Fancy? Other good stuff too.)

This weekend was my first craft show of the season. Soap, sugar scrub and more soap. I don't know if my mind and body are ready for another season. Guess they haven't checked the date on the calender.

These were for a baby shower a few weeks ago. For a soon to be Xavier. Can't wait to meet him.

See I have a problem... I spy new lines I like but I cannot let go of what I have. It's sad, really.

I'm going to a baby shower in a couple weeks! First baby shower ever! I'm making a quilt, of course :)

I hear you!! I just went through all my stuff and put away the projects that I just know I won't get to before the move. Trying make everything a little more simple so I won't run into anything at breakneck speed!

Good luck with this season's markets!

i love that dang little tie onesie. they are all cute, but i see these now all over blogdom and etsy. where was this idea when my boys were babies? it's so stinkin cute. alright, i'll make them big boy ones on t-shirts. i'll add that to MY sewing list and probably have them done in time for them to wear to their bachelor parties. hey.. that's a fun idea.

not, of course, my babies getting married. just the fake-tie-t-shirt-at-bachelor-party part.

I might be the only one, but I had to re-read this a couple of times. I was trying to figure out who was taking a pole dancing class....then I realized that it was a class for dancing around the May pole thing;)

Dana,

Scraps from both lines sound GREAT! Are they still available? If so, please let me know.

Flea Market Fancy - absolutely! They really should re-print that line!

I "found" my sugar scrub again a couple weeks ago and have really enjoyed using it again! Yes it was lost on the kitchen counter :/

This time of year is so full! Hope you get a nap :)

Ooooh I'll happily swap with you Dana although I am very unlikely to have anything of interest to you :( let me know what you're after... I could do a purchase and delivery swap online :)
