A Little Bit of Everything to Catch Up...

Hello!  :)

I'm still sick. Can you believe it? I can't. I'm just finishing up the antibiotics for the sinus infection, that's still here. My son's been sick all week so I've been taking care of him. Now on top of my existing sinus infection I've caught my son's cold as well as some other health issues going on. Will it ever end? I sure hope so! I'm still trying to get things done here and there but it's hard to concentrate.  :(

I hate the fact that I'm neglecting my blog. I'm going to do my best to try to keep up with it as I get joy from the sharing and caring that comes with it.  :)  Please bear with me.

Look what I got in the mail last week . . .


Yes those are two charm packs of the upcoming Vintage Modern by Bonnie & Camille for Moda! Plus a charm pack of Summer Breeze II by Sentimental Studios for Moda. I couldn't resist! I love all of Bonnie & Camille fabrics and couldn't wait to get my hands on some of this! Now I just have to decide what to do with it. As for the Summer Breeze II . . . I've been eyeing this collection for awhile now. I have a few vintage sheets I've collected in these exact colors that will go well with it. These are definitely nice additions to my growing fabric collection.  :)

Last week I received this wonderful book . . .


I won it over at A Quilting Life blog. It's even signed by the authors . . .


How cool is that?!!! Thanks Sherri!  :)

Beginning tomorrow I'm participating in another Blog Hop Party with Giveaways, sponsored by Michele over at The Quilting Gallery to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.


Come back here on Saturday to see what I'm giving away and enter for a chance to win.  :)

Tomorrow night is this month's Friday Night Sew-In. Have you signed up to participate yet? I have!  :)


I'm hoping to be able to work on this . . .


I'm a little behind already but hoping to get caught up quick. Last week I did manage to take these beautiful Ruby fabrics . . .


And cut them into strips ready to piece together.


I even got the white center squares all ready to go. So I'm planning on getting the 12 blocks put together Friday night during the sew-in. Wish me luck!  :)

Until next time . . .
