Work in progress, darn it!

I had hoped to have a finished quilt to show off for Sew and Tell Friday but alas, I did not have time for sewing this week, imaging that! I've been too busy laying on the sofa, watching my soaps & eating bon bons. (I wish). This quilt top is almost finished. I just have to add a boarder. THEN I must create the back, make the sandwich, baste the sucker, quilt and bind it...all before Christmas Eve...no PROBLEM!! In the mean time here are a few photos of my ever growing fabric stash for Fabric Friday. Big Daddy (husband) gave me a gift certificate to an online fabric store for my birthday back in November and I have been enjoying my fabric deliveries nearly every week. What a good boy he is. I've trained him well.

Last week I mentioned that I would have some wonderful news to share, and I do! I thought it deserved a separate post of it's own, so just click here: WONDERFUL NEWS...I'm very excited!

Now, I would like nothing better than to relax with a hot bowl of Three Bean Turkey Chili, but my sewing machine is calling me back to work...Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's back to sew I go!
