Well, I had a great week and lots to tell you! FIRST, I lost that 1/2 pound I gained and another pound to boot!! Yaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy!!! Little bits of progress, but progress none-the-less.
NEXT I guess people felt sorry for me talking about my boring life of work, eat, and sleep so I got gifts!! I opened a totally unexpected package from Sharon at Red Geranium Cottage and look what I got!! DOTS and SOAP for Valentine's Day!! Two of my favorite things!! I've been collecting dots for a long time and these will go great with them. Now ~ What to make?? What to make??
THEN I opened an envelope and there was this DARLING group of fat quarters from Barbara at QuiltSoup!! It's her new fabric line called Bubblegum Basics. It is so cute and I just can't wait to play with it!
THEN I had a couple of really nice things happen in magazines! First, I looked at the April APQ and saw that Laura Boehnke had used my Rise N Shine fabric to test one of the patterns! I have to say she did a great job and the pattern is darling!! Darn! Why didn't I think of that first!!
THEN I got an email from a friend telling me that Mark Lipinski had reviewed Sugar Sack Quilts in his March issue. GULP!! He doesn't mince words, does he? But he gave it a wonderful review and to answer his "Should I buy it?" question he said "In a heartbeat, sister!!" Wow!! How cool is THAT??So there you have it. Today I'm filling orders from my wonderful customers that came in over the weekend and hoping to sew tomorrow. We went to see the kids this weekend and went to a huge Arts and Craps (my husband's term for crafts) show. Also, got to see Cameron play basketball! It's amazing how good 5/6 year olds can be! Unfortunately, that was the other team!
Hope you all have a great week! I'll have to remember to complain about my boring life again sometime. If I do, will you send me presents?
