Ok, sew remember how i just said
that i liked QA's because someone
else does the math? Scratch that.
Those who are in the QA know that
this is NOT AT ALL how this block
was to be put together. But i had a
vision and i have to have it my way
so i had buttloads of math to do on
this one. See how it shoulda been
here. I didn't wanna cut up my
Tula gurl so i had to figure out
how to make the center all one piece.
Which involves DIAGONAL MATH.
I expect a parade in my honor for getting
this to come out right the first time.
At the very least, a cookie.
I am WAY proud of it. i guess i get a
high from math when it actually comes
out right. it's like magic.
On to stash!!
if you remember, when i re-did my
craft room, this is what my stash
looked like then:
lonely my bakeshop tray looks.
here she be now:
do say so myself. and thats just
since January! very proud.
i just keep reminding my
self of this when i accidentally end up
in JoAnns or any other quilt shop in
Be sure to come back tomorrow
for a fun surprise ;)

Here's blocks 2 & 3.
I love doing these QA's
cuz i don't have to do any of
the math! Someone already did
it for me!! Bless you.
I also really like 'em cuz i have
a tendency to control everything...
so when i design my own pattens
i HAVE to set them up in EQ so
i know exactly what material is
best for the pattern, if they all
play nice together, if the fabric
pattern scale is good for the blocks......
i can go on and on and on. (you know
how those designers are).
but with these i like to wing it!
just pick up a bundle of fabric and
get to sewin'. It makes me feel
wild and reckless. My, how my
view of "wild and reckless" has
taken a turn str8 down hill! lol.
Anyone else playing along?
How's yalls progress?

Here is my first block for the
Summer Sampler QA. Very
excited. i joined this cuz i thought
it would be PERFECT for showcasing
my newly acquired Tula Pink stash.
i mean, how can you get her fabric
and just cut it up willy-nilly?
This was the star of VA.
Can i get a Woot Woot for VA?!
I seriously couldn't w8 to get home
and start on this. I have been itching
to cut up my new stash. Ever get
Anyone else doing this QA?

I have gotten way sidetracked on this one.
But finally got it all sewn up today.
from the swap i did last year over at
the Quilt and Needle. I finally put them
to good use.
When i pieced the top, i obviously had
high hopes of it being done last month.
Summer time is a hard time to focus
on indoor things.
Sew, what are yall up to?
Anyone complete anything lately
that has taken much longer than normal? :)
OH! Don't forget; tomorrow starts the

some summer. we are going to my friends
pool tomorrow for some sun and sangria ;)
after all, that is the only good thing red
wine is for! this batch features home made
elderberry wine my cuz made last year.
i'm really excited to try it.
want to drink it.....well, i said almost.
There isn't any room left in this thing
to add the ginger ale, but i just wanted
to use this pitcher so bad. its an antique
that my mom and dad gave me and
i just love it, but it never gets used.
We'll have to do it up mix drink
style by the pool. lol
the Summer Sampler Quilt along.
i think it will be perfect for my tula pinks
i just bought. i'm sure i have enough wild
colors in my stash to add to the bunch.
it has some paper piecing in there and i'm
not too skilled on organized paper piecing,
sew i figure it'll be a fun way to fine tune
my mad skillz. well, make them "madder"
anyhow. lol. it starts July 11, sew yall
should join in!! I know Carla is! :D
who's with us?
our evening sky a few nights back.
we had a wicked storm, i hated
driving home in it, but what a beautiful
sky after the fact.
Hope yall are having a gr8 4th weekend
and join me in sitting pool side with a nice
tall glass of yummo sangria :)
