August Update


I feel like I am still on island time.
Which is both good and bad.
Good because I still feel like I'm on vacation.
Which I am. Sorta. For at least another week.
Bad because I still feel like I'm on vacation
and I'm not really getting anything done!

However, I have some excuses.
And some things I've gotten done.
But no pics today, sorry.
Maybe later this week!

In terms of excuses, my mom has been in town.
That only happens twice a year, so I treasure my time with her and stay out of the cave while she's here.
She was supposed to leave today, but due to air traffic problems in the midwest, she's staying another night.
So, yeah!
We went camping while she was here, and boy did that bring back memories of being a kid!
My mom is great!

As for things I have gotten done....
I was steadily working on my halloween quilt.
Its going to be in this pattern:

My black is a black on black swirl and the yellow is a deep purple with a sparkle in it.
I'm hoping to finish up the blocks this week.
I am already signed up for the FNSI, so that should help.

I bought the rest of the fabric I needed to make my neice's christmas quilt.

And I got an email last week that The Fat Quarter Shop got Ruby in!!

I bought the Swoon pattern soon after it was released and knew it was going on my bed.
I'm going to increase the size to make the blocks 4x4 and add some borders to make it a bit bigger on the sides, but I am really excited to make this.
So, I ordered Ruby today.
Plus some Kate Spain Flurry charm squares.
And 2 patterns.
Yep, I really like the FQS.

 That's my update.
I'll try to get back here more often.
The kids start school next week,
and that will make things easier.
I love having them home for the summer,
but I am always ready for them to go back to school.

We're on the same wavelength! I want to make Swoon myself out of Ruby too!
