projects that are getting closer....

Oooh la la....I love to see a project take "shape"!!! :) This past weekend a friend and I were able to help keep our favorite quilt shop in town open while the gals were off to quilt market! What a fun experience...and now I know just how hard our friends work to help customers find the "perfect" fabric to go with a project!!

We also had some good quality sewing time and my goal was to keep working on my UFO's so I can get more FINISHED! 4 days in the quilt shop...and only took home 1 yard of fabric...SHOCKING!! I'm still surprised...but know "I'll be back" (spoken in an Arnold S-kind of voice!)

Sticking to my goal was great as I was able to get CLOSER to finishing some very fun projects...


Pumpkins...Buggy Barn style! I love this pattern.

And very very close to finishing my "Big Bang". For this quilt top I've used "Wordplay". I love this fabric and can't wait to measure, cut, and sew the 4 pieces together!

Every morning on my way into the quilt shop I walked past this frog. He sits watching a fountain along the street in our downtown area. Quiet contemplation - a pose I adore and often find myself in...


Hope your week is swell! :)

Lovely my dear! Your projects are so fun.

I'm still shocked you only came back home with only one yard. Maybe you are waiting for what was bought at market.
