A Few Tidbits

Well, I thought that today I would be able to share lots of Works in Progress . . .but alas . . . Online School has had me running in circles for the last few days.   I haven't sewn a stitch since it all started.  But luckily,  things are starting to get a little smoother as we figure out all the technology, and schedules, and assignments (I don't think I am smarter than my 5th grader because I really don't remember a lot of it ;)    I have seen it getting more routine with each passing day, so hopefully soon we will be well oiled machine, and I can get back to my sewing machine ;)   Which is so good, because we just found out we have online school until May 1 :)
 
So not a lot of Works in Progress, but I do have some fun tidbits to share ;)

First, my Low Volume Chevron Pillow came home yesterday!!!  I was so excited, I instantly put it in my favorite chair!!  I love that it now welcomes me to the living room with a happy rainbow smile ;)   And with it's return means the Pillow Fight Finals are over.  And no, I didn't win, that honor went to Mr. Domestic and his beautiful rainbow dot pillow!!!   But I want to say a huge thank you to everyone that voted for me!!!  This was such a fun little "pillow fight" and taking second place sure was amazing, so thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!


Second, The Charming Baby Little Lou Quilt deadline has come and gone. And the winner of the giveaway is Heather with this adorable take on the Ring Around the Rosie's Quilt!!!  Isn't that so adorable ;)   Thank you so much to everyone that donated a baby quilt to Little Lou's Quilts!!!  I was blown away once again by how amazing quilters are!!!  You all just ban together and make amazing things happen ;)     And you can still keep sending in Little Lou Quilts :)    They will be treasured!!!  And just as an update, Everett and Jamison are doing well and gaining weight ;) 


And finally, Only two more weeks to the start of the Charming Baby Sew Along!!!!  This is going to be so fun!!!  So be sure to Charm Packs and your copy of Charming Baby Quilts  from It's Sew Emma, or  Fat Quarter Shop , or a signed copy directly from me.  You can find more details here and here.   And like all of my Quilt-Alongs there will be prizes along the way and a Big Grand Prize for anyone who finishes their quilt top ;)    And Moda will be sponsoring the Grand Prize and I guarentee it will be Charming!!!! 


So that's it for today :)  And now it is time for me to sign off as my kiddo is letting me know they need the computer now ;)

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!!

  2. ohhhhhh I voted for your pillow from the get-go.
    I love it. I want to make one just like it.
    The whole virus ordeal is so incredibly unbelievable and crazy.
    I am trying my best to take this time to rest and slow down.
    Video chat with my grand babies is the best.

  3. I'm excited for the sew along. I decided that I'm going to make it my youngest nephew's big boy quilt.
