Paying For My Quilting Sins...

Was feeling so smug about my choices for 2013.  Had my "word" bumping around my brain...remember, EMBRACE?!  And, primarily embracing the new budget of the retirement life.  Then HH opens the front door and says, "hey, there is a package from Homespun Quilts out here."

OPPPs.  Seems there are still a few items arriving from 2012.  How is one supposed to start with a fresh new slate when your previous sins keep showing up in the mail?  I feel like I should have a Scarlet Q on sweater...you know...so you can show everyone you are a quilting sinner???  Wonder how many Hail Mary's this one is going to require?

Anyhoo, after my 3 minute flogging with a Valdani thread I opened the package and giggled...sinning really does make one giggle.  The final block of my Sew Spooky BOM arrived in this really cute Halloween bag!  I know, who needs another bag but Free stuff always gives me a thrill even if I paid for it somehow.

This is definitely on my UFO, PIG pile but I WILL have it done before Halloween!

Today I head over the mountain for a few days of vacation and family time.  I will still be posting but sometimes it may not be exactly at 0800.  My plan is to not stop at any quilt stores but I will be visiting the cross stitch shop...wait till you see the project pattern Lori bought on our trip to France...yes, we need linen!
