Wonderful Wednesday!

Finally, things are beginning to smooth out a bit here. I should be done with wrapping up orders that came in while we were gone. My Mom's hearing really took a dive while we were away for some reason. She was very hard of hearing before, but now is almost stone deaf. I took her to the hearing specialist yesterday and at least they have some hearing aids that should help. Just one more hurdle for her. Bless her heart!

I've been washing fabric and petting it while putting it away. Getting very inspired to work with it and think I have my first quilt formulating in my mind. Can't wait!

Since I have nothing exciting to share, I'm showing a quilt today that Carla Rives of Sugarland, TX sent me. She used my Bees Knees fabric to make up the Tutti-Frutti pattern from Super Simple Squares by Possibilities for a shop sample. I love seeing how my fabrics translate into other patterns! Thanks so much, Carla!!

BTW--I know many of you haven't received the Free Pattern I promised for sending a pic. Don't worry, I haven't forgotten about you. I even took them with me to Houston to send, but no time. They should be on their way this week! And PLEASE keep sending pics!! I love showing what you've been up to.

Hope you're having a great week! Till next time--

Sorry about your mom's hearing. It sucks to get old I swear. The poor thing. But at least she will wear a hearing aid. My FIL refuses to.
Love the quilt using the Bees Knees fabric. I have tons of that fabric, I love it and do not want to cut into it. LOL

Sorry to hear about your Mum. Lovely quilt you showed. What a fabulous stash you must have! It is so lovely to hear that old fabrics are valued and taken take of. Eileen's Attic has only just finished a beautiful vintage scraps quilt from the tinest of pieces she found in a sale.
