LOVE your city purple! I think that your surrogate mom is taking over the solid at a time ;) I think that I'm going to a browns version of her House's House quilt. Brown...because my last name is brown and then it could be a brown house quilt!

7 days without sewing??? Oh, I feel your pain! Sewing is good for the soul. I cant wait to see the rest of what your working on!

OMG! You poor thing - 7 days without sewing. Did you have withdrawals? When I am forced away from the machine, I gain weight - YUK.

I did a little sewing this week, putting borders on a fall quilt and piecing the backing, its going off to Natalia this week. Nothing in...oh wait last Sunday i did buy 15 yds of Kona solids at M & L and I pushed a bunch of buttons but nothing arrived. I am getting things done but am way out of wack in/out. And yes, I am going to make night watch too just because!

You are a tease! Love all the little peeks. I needed a napkin because I started drooling over the castle peeps and the purples!

Regina said...

Oh dear. I'm making my son a quilt with the castle peeps fabric and now you're making me think I should do that with the other side. Oy oy oy!

I feel you on the 7 days without the sewing machine. Between myself being sick and now my kids being sick sewing is not an option.

I'ld say you've been super-busy! Everytime I open a quilting magazine, there you are with one of your fabulous designs! HAng on girl - it looks like things are really taking off for you! And deservedly so! No wonder you haven't had time to sew! Heck, I'm still working on my Hexagon-Quilt- along quilt!

I've been drooling over that blue castle peeps! And I can't wait to see what you did with Geo Grand - I love that one too.

I hope "life" is okay and it's nothing bad!!

That purple city quilt is so gorgeous, I love it.

Tracey Jacobsen said...

fun fabrics and projects.

And yowsa to take that many days off... were you going nuts thinking about all you needed to get done? Or were you too busy to think about it?

Speaking of, the boy just fell asleep -- I've got some catching up to do!

Granny said...

We have such different tastes in fabrics but I always LOVE seeing your quilts. Let's not talk about that stash report though! :)

Bec said...

Tricia said...
