Hello Friends, I am taking a little break from my last stretch of work marathon, and decided to check in with you! I hope you have had a good day.
First all, I am very happy to share the news that my Star Struck design won Benartex’s 2015 Fan Favorite! You may download the pattern instructions here. It’s always an honor and joy to be able to work with Benartex’s fabrics. You can read here the reason why Benartex is so special to me.
Meanwhile, Mary wrote and asked me if I have been working on any cute projects. Boy, have I ever! I have been working on some sweet projects. While I can’t really reveal the projects, I can share a sneak peek of one of the projects.
And here is a conversation I had with my husband late one night while we were both working late… really late!
Me: I just realized I don’t have nearly as many pinks as I think I do!
Husband: I guess you can’t never have enough fabrics.
It was late… I was tired, and I really appreciated his kindness in not commenting about the huge stash of fabrics I already have. Well, most of the fabrics you see in the picture below (and more not shown in the picture) made it into a recently completed project that finishes only at about 20″ x 40″. It is going to be a fun project!
And at lunch this afternoon, the first thing that jumped out at me was — the pebbles “background quilting design” on my Spode botanical plate! Quiltingly pathethic, is it not? :) I think I have been working too much lately, ha!
Thanks for letting me share these very mundane snippets with you. I shall get back to work now. I am curious though… what color fabrics are the fewest in your stash.
Oh – I almost forgot… A Mayo study was released today showing quilting and other arts and crafts activities helps with our brain power! Click here to read more. Now, I have the perfect excuse to badger everyone I know to start quilting, ha! :)
