Or maybe it was winning the jelly beans contest that kicked that slide show thing back into gear.
I prefer to think that something was just going on with Sky Drive ----But, whatever it is…..it is working for ME now, as it is for many others, so if you were unable to view the Smith Mountain Morning class pics from yesterday’s post --- click HERE and please try it again!
Things on the Calendar coming up to remember:
THIS Saturday is the first Saturday of MAY. That means YARD SALE SATURDAY! Are you with me? Please leave a comment below if you plan on listing things.
As for me….I’ve only got a few things as I am leaving in the morning for a driving trip to New York State and you know what my last 10 days have been like --- go go go go go! So a few things to clear out, but if YOU have lots, I’m happy to be the hosting spot of the linky so that others can shop your stuff. I just want an idea on participation. So…let me know if you are playing along!
Some other exciting posts are coming up ----and they are both blog parties with PRIZES!
My buddy Pat Sloan has a new book coming out, it’s called Focus On The Center, 8 New Looks for Medallion Quilts ----and I’ll be participating with my post going live on May 2nd. Yes --- that is THIS WEDNESDAY – and I’ll already be on the road to NY, so I’m writing that post today to go live then. Exciting stuff, and great prizes, so you will want to come back for that.
The one we’ve all been waiting for…..
100 Blocks by 100 Designers volume 5 by Quiltmaker Magazine is about to hit the newsstands! My participation goodies arrived in the mail while I was gone and I tackled them yesterday --- you won’t want to miss this issue, it’s FABO! ((Yes, and those jelly beans are quickly decreasing in volume now that my son has discovered them! ))
I will be participating in the blog party on May 4th! FRIDAY! Lots of prizes involved in that one too…and you get a sneak preview of my block…..and what hasn’t happened before for me EVER is the fact that I actually have a FULL QUILT to show you, because this one will be in the next book out in July! You can get your blocks started with the release of the magazine, and then those blocks will be ready to set in a quilt when the book comes out. So DEFINITELY come back FRIDAY.
Got those dates down? That’s Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday that all have things going on here at the blog….it’s a very busy week at Quiltville!
And for those who asked….here is a pic of the thread cabinet in its new location:
This is the right side of my sewing corner ---and I love that the cabinet is the perfect height to get my compu-quilter monitor and keyboard at a more comfortable level for me to stand and work as well as providing me with awesome storage space! I completely cleaned out a 3 drawer plastic thingy – and this looks so much better. There is lots of room to spare, and some kind soul even cut white felt cubby liners to fit the drawers….I just LOVE THIS!
A bit blurry, but you can see how nicely everything is going to fit….I’ve got bobbins sorted by machine types….extra machine needles, tools, gadgets and must-haves! And can I secretly admit this? ((to all 22,000 people who read this blog daily..LOL!?)) It has that old antiquey smell the same way my featherweight case does. I know some don’t like it – but that’s the fragrance of HISTORY folks! I’m one who loves old musty drawers and cases and thinking about the life this cabinet has had –and now it’s here with me!
