Sunday Update!

I finished Row #3 of the Cathedral quilt! Here's what it looks like so far:

It's hanging by clothespins in my window right now.

Pre-project-mega-push Update

For realsies, the next 5 days I am going to put out some projects and make a mega dent in the cathedral quilt. I joined the website of Quilters Club of America and just from my introductory post the feeling of camaraderie and welcoming with open arms is heart warming. I've also decided to join the local quilt guild and my first meeting is the first Monday of next month. Yesterday was my first day snowshoeing and today will be my second. Molly is digging it! I'll also be praying for a family friend that is having a mega surgery today. She's young and we're all super optimistic. Ok. Update Sunday! Here's a picture taken the other day:

In the summer, there's a pond surrounded by purple lupines. *Sigh, summer.

Happy February!

My break is over. The stress from the holidays followed by RnR is in the past. I've been building my stash with fantastic year end sales from online stores. The stores I bought from are Burgundy Buttons and Pink Castle Fabrics. Burgundy Buttons had, by far, the most discounts (some up to 55% off) that I found. Please let me know if you found any better offers! Also purchased was my first quilt kit from Pine Tree Country Quilts - I originally saw it in a quilting magazine (The Quilter) and knew that that's what will be on my bed in summer time. I also went to Loraine's Fabric when visiting Rhode Island. How friggen fantastic is that store!! So, now I'm not allowed to purchased any more fabric unless it's necessary and for an active quilt project.

What have I got done? Not a lot because, well let's face it, quilts take a long time! But one project got done and one is started.
