Making Progress

Good Tuesday afternoon to you! I have been busy this week. I haven't had a lot of time for sewing, but am happy to report that I am well on my way to finishing my 2nd Charming Girls' goal of the month, the other baby quilt. Turns out that my friend had a girl. This worked out great for me as I had just started playing around with some charms for this quilt pattern by Rachel Griffith which can be found at the Moda Bakeshop. I love that site...LOVE IT. And Rachel sure is one talented gal, I'll say. And she is very nice to boot, you should check out her site too! Okay, enough with the lovefest and onto the quilting. I have all 9 blocks done in this disappearing 9 patch and I have the sashing trimmed. Can I hear a Whoo-who! Seriously, I am quite pleased with this.

Sorry the photo is so busy and lame with that quilt underneath poking through. Hopefully I will be able to show a completed top soon.

We had a nice time going to the fair with Grandma and Grandpa last weekend despite the heat. We spent the weekend at their house.

Looking good! I love the colors you chose as well. Girly but not BABY girly. She can use it as a wallhanging when she gets older. Fantastic!

I'm doing a cartwheel while shouting my "woo hoo" !!! (old habit ... sorry .... I was a cheerleader ....about a hundred years ago ... so the cartwheel is kind of lame and is accompanied by a groan or two ....but that doesn't mean it's not being done with heartfelt enthusiasm !)

ANYHOW .... LOVE that quilt!

...AND thanks so much for your sweet comments on my blog re: the hotp pack/cold pack cover !! xoxo
