2 Posts in 2 Days...WHEW!

I'll bet you're just shocked...2 posts from me in 2 days...you probably thought your Bloglines had gone nuts...well you know, now that I have this "compose" tab figured out, it's a whole lot easier and you may just hear more from me. LOL!

I got upstairs for a little while today, did a little cleaning, straightening, organizing and a bit of sewing. I got my blocks for Simply Sophistcated done for this month...

I just loved this fabric and knew I wanted to do something with it, but I just didn't know what to do...I had seen this BOM on Fat Quarter Shop and I really liked it...but then when Vicky talked about it, I took that as a sign, it was what I was supposed to do with this fabric. This month's installment was in my mail when we got home yesterday so I got it done today. Went together perfectly! Thanks Vicky for getting me going.


While I was sewing, here's what the boys did...

Actually this is what they did most of the day. Howie (in the front) heard the camera so he opened his eyes...Zack could have cared less.


A while back I mentioned that I was doing some secret sewing for a designer friend of mine...well, she sent me a picture of the front of her new book that she will be taking to Market with her in a couple of weeks. This book is so fun...brings back lots of good memories of games that we all played as kids. Even if you don't need a little person quilt, these patterns are so wonderful...there are a couple that I want to make bigger...I had so much fun working on these quilts. Thanks Lynda for letting me help you with this fun project.


Andy's working tomorrow...so I'm hoping for lots of sewing time. Hmmm, maybe I'll have something to show you then...3 posts in 3 days...OMG!

Congratulations on figuring out the easy posting technique, always good to hear more from you. :) I like you BOM fabric, very pretty and this new book that is coming out looks very interesting. How nice to be a part of the creating and marketing.

The fabrics in your quilt blocks are beautiful - perfect together. And the new book looks like one I might be interested in. Hmmm, when am I not interested in a new book! Compose tab? What is that? blessings, marlene

Vicky said...

Your blocks are wonderful! Just love that fabric! Good luck in the drawing!!

I like Lynda's stuff. Will have to look for the book when it's out! Thanks for the heads-up!

Those pups really are pooped *s* I can't wait for that book to make it back to my neck of the woods - I can already tell it's gonna be a keeper.

So funny that your boys are so tired. Who knew a vacation could be so exhausting? Love your little blocks!

Judy said...

Now Momma, those boys need their own beds! I'd bet they have them and would still sleep together!!

Love Lynda's new book!

I just joined in Vicky's BOM Club too. Love the fabrics and won't it be fun to get the blocks made along with everyone else?
I wish my dogs would just lie still for a minute.

Marilyn R said...

Your blocks look great and the book looks like it could be a keeper too!

Linda said...

Thanks for stopping by - I am with you on keeping quiet. Seems bloggers around my age agree with me too!!

Love the quilts. Great colors and that book looks interesting too!

Have a great day!!

Karen said...

I see that "the boys" have great interest in what you are doing!
I got the e-mail announcement from Lynda about her new book. I think I would like to have one. What did you help with?

Cheryl said...

OK, I need a lesson on the compose tab..I never heard of that!!!! Love the BOM and I can tell I will need that book!! Always love seeing the boys.

Carole said...

Lovely block! That looks like a cute book! Will have to check it out! Cheers!

Nan said...

Look at you go, girl! Your BOM blocks are very pretty - I am still thinking about joining it, as I am in total love with the fabric line.
I didn't know you were friends with Primitive by Lynda Lynda! I think her patterns are wonderful - I own several of them.
I wish my girls would lie around all day so I could sew! No such luck, I'm afraid. Now if i were to spend the day lazing around on the couch......
