The 2013 Flicker UFO site has exceeded my expectations in the effect it has had on my drive to keep working on projects.  It has not only affected my desire to complete UFO but it has inspired me in all aspects of my quilting life.  Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!  I especially love that we can leave comments on each others projects...because who doesn't like a little kudos!  There are no deadlines to joining or when you have to complete a project...this is all about you and you make your own rules!

yesterday I got excited when I received an email that we could pick up the first Kathy Schmitz QOM (quilt of the month)!!!  Remember this sneak peek photos from a couple of weeks ago.

We are starting with the March Quilt which is the Easter Bunny delivering eggs.  I love Kathy Schmitz stitchery designs and this series which is 12 months has some interesting fusibles.

Isn't it cute.  Once the stitchery is completed you cut the fusible provided (there is one in each month) and fuse them in the designated area.

totally fun!!

my new hexie stamp arrived and I am kinda bummed...I thought it would be smaller???  I wonder if she has a smaller one?  I am a mini kinda gal.  Did I ever tell you that I was published in Miniature Quilt Magazine, twice.  I am going to have to research this one really is a clever idea!

I have been taking a series of photos of Enzo.  He crawls under the curtain that hangs behind my dining room chair and sits over the heater vent.  I have been taking a daily photo of him in his babushka...with the song Matchmaker, matchmaker make me a match...catch me a catch...playing in my head!

I am riding out with some girlfriends to check the construction site and visit the open house at the Stitchin' Post.  Hope you have a wonderful Saturday!
