Fat Quarter Mystery BOM 2011

There are a few things changing next week
that are going to find me with more time in my sewing room.

First we will be springing forward.
My sewing room has wonderful sunlight.
However when the sun goes down my lack of good electrical lighting causes me to call it a night.
(I have looked at a few lighting options but nothing really seems like what I want)
TJ really likes this since he gets alot more petting when I am in the living room.
So the time change means an extra hour of sewing time.
Whoo Hoo!

Secondly Jeff starts a brand new job on Monday.
I am so excited for him!
His old job had him working 4 day a week.
When Jeff is home we find alot of fun things to do together.
That really cuts into my sewing time.
(Not that I am complaining)
He will be home for dinner each evening.
Did I mention that Jeff loves to cook, and well me not so much.
Whoo Hoo!

The moral of this long story is that I think there will be alot more sharing on this blog.

I don't think I have mentioned that there are going to be a wedding in my future.
My DD Bee & Sam will be getting married in September.
It will be on a San Diego Harbor cruise.
It is going to be so romantic.
All the planning is going smoothly.
My favorite part so far was wedding dress shopping.
I am so blessed to have such a wonderful daughter,
and that she is giving me such a perfect son-in-law.

Speaking of sharing,
I was just about to be 3 months behind on my Fat Quarter Shop 2011 BOM.
But alas I have finished the 2 previous blocks before this month's showed up.
I even signed up for the next round.

I have really enjoyed these blocks and will have to figure out how I am going to finish this quilt
since I missed buying the finishing kit.
The nice thing is the block kits are cut so generous
I bet there are enough scraps to finish the top.


  1. I missed the finishing kit as well, but bought the finishing pattern. I figured I could get the fabrics somehow or substitute.

  2. I love your attitude! I love to sew with a view out a sunny window too. Congratulations to getting a new son-in-law. My dd is getting married in May. I haven't even thought of a dress yet. lol


Thanks taking the time to share your thoughts.
