Hi friends! While rummaging through my stash a few days ago, I came across this sweet, little freebie I stitched last October. The poor thing needed to be made up and finished.
I drew the name of the winner for the LK Love Is Best traveling pattern. I couldn't get Henry to pick a name today, so I did the job myself. ;) I still prefer to write everyone's names, cut them into little strips, fold them, shake and mix them and pull one out. The winner is Hazel! I am waiting for Hazel's address, then this pattern is off to England!
I went through a real sadness this weekend. I pulled out my shoebox full of pink tumbler blocks to begin piecing them together in horizontal rows. Friends, I just cannot believe it. I miscalculated. By a LOT. I need 156 different, pink fabrics still to complete that Epic Pink Charm Quilt. I think I figured out the math part while on percocet. And I am not kidding. Not like me to misjudge like that. I was so down about this, that I thought of just quitting the whole thing. I mean c'mon! That is a lot more fabric. But no. I truly want to make this quilt. I have been collecting pink fabric for years to make it. I bought fabric at JoAnn and Hobby Lobby on Saturday. So 156 is my new goal, it was higher. sigh.
Well, I did get five horizontal rows pieced. They are ready and waiting. I will plug away at piecing here and there, since there is no telling how long it will be until I have every piece of fabric I need. I put my countdown of the pink fabrics needed back in my sidebar.
I am so glad to count you as a friend! Thank you for visiting with me today. Have a fabulous week now.
Stitching and praying,
