Update #1 @ 2:11 pm:

I’ve been to the library and the grocery store, washed sheets and made the bunk bedsDSC_0001_01

and I’ve sewn the next step in the directionsDSC_0015_01 I’ll have blocks at my next update!  Woo Hoo!


8:20 am —soooo…this is my first sewing party, and i think that i’m already breaking the rules!  i’m not going to be working on a christmas project.  but, it will be a quilt that will probably be used at christmas time by guests sleeping over…does that count?!

i’m going to be working on my bliss quilt…it’s a big schnibble.  can you tell which pattern?DSC_0020 DSC_0016 totally loving this so far!

On a sort of unrelated quilty note…one of my 20 or so LQS (gotta love HOUSTON!) was featured in Quilt Sampler magazine!DSC_0021 DSC_0023 Quilters Emporium in Stafford Texas is actually one of the shops that I frequent quite a bit.  I bought my machine there…Janome 6600.  I have to say that one of the things that I love the most about this shop…has nothing to do with fabric or selection!  I love that they have just about every kind of staff person there.  Men and women, and even a young man with a nose piercing!  He’s got a fantastic eye for color, and is so knowledgeable (is that spelling right?)…and totally not like your “average” quilt store employee!

So that’s my two cents on my LQS…and also my beginning glimpse at my Christmas in August project.  See you later today with an update!
