Sweet Monday

This past weekend was just what the Quilting Psychiatrist ordered...a handful of stitching days in a row!!!  Finally able to clear some surfaces, plot my attack and move forward through the battle lines...sounds like I am strategizing a battle plan when in reality I am just dealing with my stacks of projects, LOL. But it felt good to make some headway and get a little organized.  

I wanted to share with you the group photo from the cruise.  We are quite an amazing can click on it to enlarge and then it is like a "Where is Waldo" challenge...can you find me?   

The time has come to announce the winner of Stacy's Give Away...she is so generous!!!  And there are 2 winners!!!  Barbara Woods and Paulette!!!  Email me your mailing address and I will get these kits off to you!!! 

A friend of mine has an Etsy shop selling these Wooly Wounds and I have placed a link on the right side of the blog if you are interested.  These Wooly Wounds are such a wonderful addition to wool stitchery because you don't have to buy all those expensive spools of thread but can get a bobbin's worth of every color!!!  Check it out your pocket book will like you :)

How did you spend your weekend???  One of the accomplishments for me was getting all my fabrics cut for the Great Granny Square quilt.  I love using this strip cutter...everything is precise and it is more time efficient!

I love my neat little stacks of fabrics and can't wait till I can dive in and start stitching those Great Granny Squares!

I made a pile of scraps but don't the colors look wonderful!

I am almost done with a friends quilt in memory of her son and it has been a journey of gratefulness.  That is what I love about quilting...the very action of stitching fabric together is so much like life itself.  Have a wonderful Monday.
