Awww, You Shouldn't Have!


This is what I've been doing between laundry, math lessons, meals, sewing room clean-up, piano lesson, and life today. I have a stack of 25-patch blocks that I've been waiting to make into a quilt top. I couldn't decide if I wanted to give this to someone as a gift or sell it. I looked at the bank account...it's for sale! I'll be listing it on eBay after I finish the bottom corner, LOL! I also am selling a quilt top that is my "broken leftover dishes" pattern. Still need to put borders on that.

Kairle over at Happy Valley Quilter gave me an award. It's the "you make my day" award. I am so honored. Bonnie stiff-armed me into starting a blog (yes, I'm still blaming her). But I've met so many nice quilters! I've really enjoyed journaling progress or the lack thereof on my quilt projects. It's fun to go back and see what has been finished. But I digress. I am supposed to "choose up to 10 people whose blog brings you happiness & inspiration and makes you feel happy about Blogland."

Here are a couple I always find uplifting and often inspiring...

~Patty at Morning Ramble. She has a positive view of life and inspires me to be a better person.

~Lucy at Quilting with the Past. I love seeing Lucy's projects and her house.

~Bonnie at Quiltville.com. Is there anyone on quilting blogland that doesn't know Bonnie? One of my favorite recent memories is spending an evening with her in SC.

~Mary at Making Scrap Quilts from Stash. A beautiful long arm quilter that primarily quilts for charity and is always coming up with lovely quilts from strings.

~Kairle at Happy Valley Quilter. Last but not least, one of my favorite blogs. I want to be one of her daughters so she'll make my favorite cookies. I always enjoy emailing Kairle.

Take care,
~Joan
