Celebrate Come On...!!!!

So many things to celebrate!!!

First to announce the WINNER of the Give Away...Happy Valley Primitives! who said, "I really love Kathy's patterns, and this one is so beautiful!"

Yesterday's Blog made me ROFLOL...all those Quilt Seizures going on around Woolie land!  I got so many requests about the patterns that I hunted the links down and here they are...sigh...aren't they just beautiful...I can't wait till I can really sit down in my sewing room and say, "Hummm, I feel like starting that project...or this project...or that one over there!!!" In the meantime, can one of you start these projects...

Primitive Pieces by Lynda called the Gathering Baskets
Renee of Needl' Love  called Basket Time Tablerunner

Today is the first day of HH's Independence Day!  This man has worked for over 40 years and he is ready for some free time!!!  I told him he could take 4 days off but starting Tuesday he is back to work as an employee of a company of 2! :) 

To commemorate this event I finished my latest wool project!  I love how it turned out and that I set a goal to get it done by 4th of July...and look at me all smug...the pattern is by Threads That Bind.

Today I have got to get my 1st Saturday blocks done for BJ's 1st Saturday about you...what are you up to this fine Friday?


  1. Congratulations to HH on his amazing accomplishment. May the roads be smooth and the weather perfect.

    Enjoy this time together and enjoy your new home.

    Your flag is great, nicely done.

  2. May you have many happy experiences together now that he is freed up.

  3. Congrats to your hubs! You two will keep busy I have a feeling! So glad your home is about done! You'll have it in order in no have too much energy to let it be chaotic for too long! Funny post yesterday...I know that quilt seizure feeling myself!! LOL

  4. Here's to a long, happy, healthy retirement for HH! And you, too! Today was the last day of my Asilomar seminar, now resting at the hotel in preparation for the long drive home tomorrow. Real wifi so I may be able to. Log, if I don't nap till bedtime!

  5. Ahh, retirement looks like so much fun! We spent Friday as a family getting ready for some girl's basketball. Wish I could have had some stitching time!

    And, whoohoo! Thanks so much for picking my name for your giveaway! I can't wait to start on that beautiful table runner!

    Happy Valley Primitives

  6. Congrats on hubbys retirement, enjoy.

    Where did you find the frame to fit the flag stitchery? Mine has been finished for awhile and I am still looking for that 7X32 frame. I do not have a blog, and so I know this comes as a no reply blogger. I don't know how to fix this, but I will check later for your reply.

    1. the website for Threads That Bind which is the designer of the pattern sells unfinished frames for these projects. I found a 9 x 33 inch frame at Michael's that was made for 4-5 photos. I threw the mat away and just used the frame!
