Sunday Already?

How did that happen?  Is it just me, or is this year flying by already?   Oh well, I better get a move on finishing some more things  :)

I've been taking part in a fabric postcard swap on Facebook  (remember those quilted heart postcards), and these are the postcards I've received so far ...

From Kylie in Oz

from Janetta in Utah

from Sherri in Mission, SD

I was at the LQS earlier in the week, and I had to fight these beauties to stop them jumping into my bag... lol

I lost the fight!


Sunkissed


And these gorgeous teacups ...

Yesterday I had a little play with some spot, stripes and checks...

These are for V, over at Bumblebeans, as part of a 15 Minutes of Play challenge ...

Pretty eh?  I have to get these babies in the mail along with something extra  :)

And today, after spending way too long reading blogs and roaming the web, I felt it was time to cut up this beauty...


I have a (another) plan!

but I just couldn't do it!  This is as far as I got ... Lol 
So I rolled them back up, tied them back with ribbon and put them back on the table to continue to inspire me!

Instead I got round to making my blocks for the Christmas Quilt Along ...


And I forgot to show you what I was doing at the LQS this month...


... everyone else was making a bag, and as you know (you may not) I'm not really a bag lady, so I decided to do an alternative project.  I wasn't the only one, Mary was doing something else too!  :)

This will be a journal cover for my diary ...


this will give you a better idea of what I was doing   :)

Sew, not as productive as I'd like, and Nancy has already announced which UFO we are working on next month (#4 on my list) sew I better get a move on and finish the quilting of my #8 whilst we are still in February!

Hope you've all had a wonderful weekend!

Happy Quilting!
