It's hard to believe that my birthday month (haha) is almost over! My mom brought me lunch on my birthday, and look what else...
I'm always amazed at how many tempting sew-alongs there are in blogland. And also how many people seem to follow several of them and actually FINISH them! Last year, I watched from the sidelines while tons of people followed along with Lori, from Humble Quilts blog, making a cute little quilt called Pink Lemonade. I kept seeing these little quilts on blogs, and finally couldn't take it any more and just had to make one! Well, it didn't take that long to piece it. Then I basted it last year so I could take it along on The Great Fart to start the hand quilting. Well, I did work on it a little bit, but put it away when I got home, because I had a bigger hand quilting project to finish. So, FINALLY, a year after everyone else, my Pink Lemonade is finished. You can see on Lori's blog that she hosted another SAL this year called Abundance - it is wonderful and last I saw, 45 bloggers had linked up - showing their version. I AM NOT going to break down and make it, even though the temptation is great!
I posted a new pattern on my website. These pin cushions were originally in Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting, January/February 2012 magazine. So if you missed that issue, you can now get the patterns from me.
Callie is busy as usual, tending to put a damper on my productivity!
Have a great weekend!
