We were not disappointed--Our socks were blown so high, they have not come down yet!

Isn’t this colorful quilt fun? She used the crumb strips that I was sewing on an earlier Quilt-Cam ((Yes, this is still a WIP for me!)) piecing them by color family and sewing them into groups for the center of large stars! Still a top, there are borders and quilting coming, but FUN FUN FUN!

Ladies, I appreciate your show and share SO MUCH ---I love seeing them, I love sharing them. We are bound together by our love of scrap quilts and sew much more!
I know this is short notice, but is anyone interested in Quilt-Cam tonight?
I’m home alone! The Hubster is up at Quilt Villa, his brother came into town yesterday, and they are puttering around with the 4-wheelers and doing guy stuff. I may head up there tomorrow night, or Wednesday morning as they also have Sadie with them ---Dave will drive Bruce back to Charlotte to the airport on Wednesday morning and then go to Hickory where he has some meetings for the day, which means SOMEONE has to go to be with Sadie, and that leaves me!
Jason is planning on coming up to the cabin on Thursday with some buddies, going snowboarding at Sugar –so the cabin will be full through the weekend and I’ll be in the midst of that.
If we want Quilt-Cam – it’s gotta be TODAY if we do it at all this week.
9pm, Eastern Time – see you there, bring a project – let’s sew together!
