Whew! It's been a busy 10 days here! I was lucky enough to have my mom come and stay for a great visit! We dreamt big and thought we'd finish two quilts and get another two started.

Let's say that was a practical plan, had we been locked in a room with our sewing machines.

Think: no interruptions from the little people or HobbyHubby or the phone...

Think: no shopping trips, no trip to the zoo, no lunches out, no vacation bible school...

Think: no chores (laundry, meal prep, tidying up)...

Think: no sleeping, resting, napping, chatting, checking email, blogging...

Think: no Saturday night date with HobbyHubby (1st since our anniversary last December) while mom babysits!

THINK of what we'd have missed had we had that practical plan!!!

So here we go...


are the quilts we worked on. (mine above, hers below) It is a fun Debbie Mumm pattern called Seasons. The middle panel swaps out to show each different season. That one is the beginning of spring. We still have to completely applique the other three seasons and finish this one, bind the whole base and little panels, and applique a vine on the main base!

Saturday Mom, Auntie B and I went shopping!

are the purchase we made at the quilt shop.
Here are the fabrics and patterns Mom bought! Below are fabrics needed to make one fun gift for a dear friend's upcoming birthday? Do you know who you are? Can I get it finished in time?
Here is a happy little elf that I couldn't pass up... Part of a larger Christmas panel. Do you think I could walk by the panel and not get two charm packs or enough border and binding fabrics? Are you kidding me? I'm going to make this Jolly Elf quilt and then it will be the official Christmas cuddle on the couch quilt! HA! Or, should I say HO HO HO?
Oh, and here is another charm pack that will become something lovely!
This is happy fat quarter stack of thirties prints that can't wait to be joined!
We stopped by the yarn shop.

Are the supplies purchased to take the Lucy Bag class at the Cultured Purl in September!

And the yarn Auntie B picked for me to knit her Christmas gift!

As if I didn't have enough to do already?
Time to get to work!

Happy Hobbies!
