thats' all folks. (for a week.)

B decided today to design her own mini quilt to hang on her wall,
so, side by side, she made the one above, while I made the one belo
all from the scrap bins....
boy that feels good!
I get to hand quilt it, though, she says, SO I guess I have
some nice little projects to work on the airplane this weekend.
yep. We are off to the sunshine. YAHOOO!

As, I was finishing up marking my little one above, B decided that was pretty cool, and wanted to make another.
SO she put this little block together (BELOW)...
I may try to convince her to make more blocks like this
and we'll make it into a quilt for her... But we'll see...

I , mean while have gotten out some paints, and pastels to work on some ideas for some fabric designs, and quilt sketches...
Gotta get them out of my head.... They can really keep me up at night thinking about different ideas....

It's been nice having our school break this week.
The weather is finally warming up a little.
And anytime, running in Central Park, is always worth it.

So , shortly we are off to the sun. Happy sewing. Be creative, and I'll be soaking up some Vitamin D, and picking Tonya's brain about some sewing tips...

Can't wait.

oh, and Andrea, I'm counting on winning this quilt!
(You can drop it off for my bday... Hint hint.)

Stay tuned.
