absence makes the heart grow fonder

Hello all...remember me?

I just had a revelation in the shower...if I am ever going to be good at blogging...I am going to have to actually do some posts!  and if i am every actually going to have a 100 post giveaway, I am going to have to actually do some posts!! 

I have lots to blog about but I will start slow and easy and try not to reveal everything all at once!

I have had a hard time NOT shopping for fabric this summer...does it seem to anyone else that there have been some really fabulous fabric sales??  Here is one of my favorite parcels I received this summer...and best of was part of a gift certificate I had to the shop, so it basically cost me nada!

Now that is one lovely pile of fabric, right?  You can have this same package by stopping by Alewives Fabrics.  Rhea and her mom run the shop and carry only the best of the best!

ok, slow and easy...remember...Ill leave today with a shot of the Quilt As You Go quilt I am working on for my nephew's 7th birthday in November.

Whereas it looks like a finished product all folded up like still needs backing fabric...I used a method of sewing directly onto the batting...but more on that later.  

and hopefully sooner rather than later!


  1. Nice group of fabrics. I like the blue on the end.
    I'm the same way. I have lots of ideas for posts, it just doing it!! I need to sit down and make a plan with my ideas, and make a schedule!

  2. I need to learn more about this quilt as you thing. What does the back end up looking like?
    I've got a king size quilt to make and this might be the way to go!

  3. I thought I recognised some Marimekko in that beautiful stack! I just went to the Alewives site to check - what a beautiful shop - you are such an enabler!

  4. Yay, you're back! Your nephew's quilt looks like it's going to be really cool. We went to the zoo today and I thought of you!

  5. WAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Jenny that quilt is so adorable, I love the sneak peak and can't wait to see it all!!!!!!!! Unfold it baby...twist and shout!
