Little Random Bits and Pieces

I hope you had a fantastic holiday weekend, for those that had a bit of time off of work.  It has been spectacular here - lots of sewing, catching up on stuff around the house, visiting friends, dining with family and general laziness around here.

You might see the general laziness sticking to this post...I just can't get myself organized enough to give you a glimpse of my sewing right now, so I thought I'd fill you in on the other scattered bits and pieces over the past few days.

In super happy news, my charms from Jenn's polka dot charm swap arrived.  They're super!  Isn't it funny how you look at the prints in flickr and you know exactly what you are going to receive, but when they arrive they are a million times better in real life?



In other news, Fluffy Sheep Quilting and friends made the Spring 2012 issue of the Irish Patchwork Society's news letter.  Now, I know it's not like my quilts are appearing in some super fab publication, but still it was a nice surprise to see my quilts featured.


Now I'm wishing I wore something a bit cuter, but there I am in my little white shirt and blue jumper with jeans.  There's Mod Logs in the upper left, Rhonda's rockin' Christmas table runner in the bottom left and Lattice Illusions in the bottom right.  How fun!  Next time I'll dig a bit deeper into the closet before the Society meeting :)

Finally...and I wish I had a photo for this...Stargazing is winging its way to Trudi to be quilted.  I am so super duper excited about the swirly design we have agreed on.  I hope it arrives at her place soon!

I'd be staying in my PJs sewing all day and every day if I could!

I wouldnt have thought that digging deep into the closet for a society meeting would be advisable... ;-)
So exciting that stargazing is getting quilted - its going to be so cool.
