It's Monday. It's gloomy and pouring rain outside but I'm having a very fun Monday!
First I took some photos of the blocks I made yesterday (I had a fun day on Sunday too!)
Brit Bee Blocks for Katy
Swoon block for do.Good Stitches
Block 3 of the Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery Block of the Month
Then I got started on a project I've been looking forward to for a long time. I finally found the perfect pattern for some Jelly Rolls I've been saving. I fell head-over-heels in love with Momo's It's a Hoot line when it first came out, and have finally found a reason to unravel them!
The pattern is called Merry Go Round by American Jane, and I LOVE it! I can't stop sewing.
Then the postie rang the doorbell and delivered this amazing pile of yumminess from the lovely Annie at The Village Haberdashery. I did a little project for her a while back and am lucky enough to be doing another one! When she told me I could pick whatever I wanted from the coming soon section I think I might have squealed a little bit because I have been desperate to get my hands on these Country Mice since Heather Ross first showed a sneak peak on her blog!
I think I'm going to find it very hard to go to bed at all tonight, when there is such an amazingly cute stack of fabric to play with!
Hope you are all having a great Monday!
Your block looks great and so pleased you found a great pattern for your 'It's a Hoot' don't think I'll be cutting into my stash until I get a new machine ;-) Can't wait to see what you're going to do with the fabric Annie sent you too!ReplyDelete
you have inspired me! I have that American Jane pattern...I need to make it!!!ReplyDelete
You busy, lucky lady xxxReplyDelete
Love your Merry GO Round. I've decided it isn't a Bank Hol in Scotland then as you got a knock from Mr Postie! Oh...and I'm reading on all the UK quilt blogs I follow about the rain today...feeling smug because it just missed us!!ReplyDelete
I need to go and have a look at the American Jane pattern. Lots of lovely post there ttoReplyDelete
lovely blocks, but oh my that parcel was full of yumminess, love those colours and miceReplyDelete
Lovely pattern for your It's a Hoot - I love that line too.ReplyDelete
Will be intrigued to see what you make with your goodies from Annie. Juliex
Your blocks are perfect, and the meeses are so cute, but its that pattern I'm swooning over! I really want to try that one!!ReplyDelete
Merry Go Round looks fab! And aren't those mice the cutest!! I look forward to seeing what you create from it- that's when you can force yourself to cut into it!ReplyDelete
Too much goodness to comment on individually. And HR too! Enjoy.ReplyDelete
Loving those hexies Fi! Are you using a specific ruler for those? JxoReplyDelete
Oooh, they all look fab, but special thanks for mine :o) BTW, are you free on Sunday? I have a sleepy visitor for the weekend if you have an hour or two to come over to play...ReplyDelete
Oh wow those are so fun! I love the bee blocks and the pattern for Just A Hoot is perfect!! I used that fabric in one of my first projects, its so cute! Really great projects!!ReplyDelete
Does that second block have a name? I'd love to find the pattern online.ReplyDelete
Oh, the hexies are divine!!! My friend is making one like that (but with four strips per hexy, I think) from 30s-style fabric - funny coincidence!!! I think I may have to 'invest' in a JR the next time Mrs Cross Patch has a sale ;o)ReplyDelete
oh what a bunch of lovely blocks!ReplyDelete
The quilt with the hexies is so beautiful. I love it!ReplyDelete
