My goodness the time does fly when you're having fun!
You guys are too, too funny. Just today I received 5 emails asking how we were all doing because I haven't posted in a while. But as the title to my post says, I've been busy...honest!
So to Sydney in NY, Janet in Quebec, Doris in Ohio, Libby in Maine and Shirley in MA, everyone in the Painted Quilt household is fine and we're all doing well...and thanks for asking!
It's snowing again today. I think we're supposed to get around 4-6" by the time this evening rolls around.
Just when the snow from our previous dumping had all but disappeared, early this morning we woke up to to see more of the white stuff.
It was bitterly cold yesterday unlike the almost spring-like weather we experienced over the last four to five days.
So what does a gal do on a blustery snowy day? Why stay indoors and sew, of course!
For the past week and a half I've been busy working on another BOM for you all which I hope to have ready for release on the 1st of April. Other than saying it's going to be FREE and that it will run for six consecutive months, I'm not going to give you any other hints except that "Scrappy" is a part of it's title.
Well, maybe I'll show you a very little sneak peek...
I still have two of the side borders to attach and then the piecing of the top will be complete.
Now just the piecing will be complete. Then comes the fun part of embellishing by adding different textures and doo dads and I can't wait! I'll have until the end of February to complete the top because that's when my friend Alice who does my longarm quilting will be back from her Florida vacation. As soon as she returns, I'll be sending it off to be quilted.
Are you excited? I am!
I've been a little remiss in sharing with you this beautiful little quilt that my BBFF (best blogging friend forever ) sent to me for Christmas. This is the third little quilt that Mary from Quilt Hollow has gifted me with over the years and I have to say that I think this one is my favorite. The colors are perfect!
Isn't it just over the moon and back? Mary knows my tastes so well, perhaps because our tastes are so similar. Thanks again, my friend.
The boys were cuddling by the fire again this morning...
|Think we should tell her that we need a bigger bed?|
and Ollie was back here.
Even though they are best buddies, they do need their own space...just like us humans, huh? *wink*
I hope that you all are enjoying the weekend as we are!
