Welcome to my 100th post!!! I can't believe I'm here already. I thought for sure I had more time before reaching this milestone. I started blogging back on August 18, 2011. It seems like forever ago. Time sure flies doesn't it?!!! Now 8-1/2 months later I've written 100 posts and have 395 followers! Wow! Thank you all so much for coming back here time and time again to see what I'm up to! I really appreciate it and you! :) Later this week I'll have a giveaway to celebrate this milestone along with reaching 400 followers (hopefully I'll actually get 5 more followers before then)! Stay tuned! ;)
Now back to the regularly scheduled program . . .
I swear I've actually been working on things the past couple of weeks. I've just been working slower than I was. Plus I've got a few new things going on. Some you already know about like the Traveling Stash boxes. They are some boxes that travel from person to person in the US where you get to take whatever quilting supplies you want and then replace them with the same amount you took. I was following the travels of these boxes then I actually won one. After that I ended up volunteering to keep track of them. Hence the Traveling Stash Updates. I've also been doing more thrifting, which I love! :) I've picked up more treasures this weekend which I'll share with you later. Stay tuned! ;)
For now I want to share my final blocks for the My Favorite Things quilt I'm working on. I still haven't gotten the blocks and strips cut . . . I know! Someday I'll actually get them cut so I can begin putting this thing together. For now here's a picture of the blocks for the final row . . .
Here's a close up of the butterfly block . . .
Isn't it pretty?! I love this pink fabric! And check out the birdie . . .
Of course it's blue! Did you see his wing? :)
How about some sunshine to brighten your day?
I love sunshine, although I do not like the heat. I really cannot tolerate anything over about 75 degrees. Yes I'm a wimp!
The next block is an old wooden chair . . .
Of course it had to be red! Doesn't it just look adorable with all those lovely flowers?
Then there's the heart. I love hearts! Of course it's pink! It represents family and love of course!
And last, but not least, presents to share . . .
Who doesn't love presents?!!! I do much prefer to give then to receive . . . and I'm not just saying it! I really mean it! I get so much joy watching someone open a gift I picked out or made especially for them. :)
You can find out more about this quilt I'm making as part of a Stitch and Quilt Along here. You can follow my progression with this quilt here, here, here, here and here.
As a last note . . . be sure to smile and always spread love and cheer wherever you go! I'll be back with more to share with you soon!
Until next time . . .
