Monday Catch Up

Good morning! Welcome to November, can you believe we're nearing the end of 2014?  I feel like the time is racing by at a faster pace than I'm accustomed to. Is it just me? 
Quilt Market is a great time to connect with quilt friends that are also in the business that you only see a couple of times a year.  My friend Mary Andra from Sister's Quilt Trunk came by, she and her sister's didn't have a booth this time, so we actually had some time to visit. She made this lovely block and wondered if I might like it!  OH MY GOSH I WOULD!

From Mary Andra
Mary Andra's applique is beautiful, as is her embroidery.  I love the embroidered bow layered over the striped handle.  And of course love that it's made with Pam Kitty fabric.

From Mary Andra
Of course I wanted her to sign it, and she came prepared with a pigma pen!  The signature makes it so special.  Thank you so much Mary Andra, what a special gift you have given me.

Sew Sweet Bee Block by Amy
When I came home I also had a Sew Sweet Bee block from Amy.  I love her fabric selections and the little sheep she included!  So cute !

I'm cracking up over her note about being nervous about writing on her block. The signatures really make the project to me, and help me remember who sent each block.  My memory isn't what it used to be.

Here's the churn dash block I made for Renee.  I had to pull out my Bernina 180 to stitch this up, my 1260 is in the shop for it's cleaning and tune up.  I use it so infrequently it's hard to remember how to use it, not to mention finding all the correct feet! It's a nice machine, I should use it more often. I am late to stitch this up, so I'll get this in the mail asap! Thanks for being patient Renee!
Ok, that's it for today! I hope you had a nice weekend.  Getting that bonus hour was a big help, and I like getting up with a little more light in the morning. I'm not going to enjoy how short the days are though.  Oh well, I'm grateful for electricity!

Have a good week everyone!

Such a pretty block! And I hate the dark when I am leaving the office but it makes ok to crawl into bed an hour earlier.

Oh my. Mary's block is wonderful. Sew simple but sew meaningful. I've probably got enough of the flowered fabric to make one. Since I didn't find it on her sets, I'll have to ask her where I can get it.

The pink churn dash is lovely.

Pam you are too funny, This was specifically made for you. I have kept the words for special people in my life. I now see how selfish that is as I have had many requests for the pattern. There are lots of people who have special people in their lives so I will share it my words soon. Hugs to you and all who read this.
