Link up

It has been a little bit since I posted.  We have been sick in this house, and I have not worked on my projects because my things are in the basement and it is freezing down there.  I have to move some things away from the baseboard heating before I can turn it on.  I hate cleaning when I am sick.  Even the kiddos haven't been going down there much. 

We have a snow/ice day today, which ended up being a good because my oldest is sick.  Poor thing.  And of course I have been blog hopping..hehe.  My very first follower told me about a Small Blog Meet over at Lily's Quilts so I decided...what the heck, I will join.  It is always fun reading new blogs. 

And finally.... a few pictures of the fabric I talked about in my last post.
I am so excited about these ones...but not sure I like the fabric all by itself with them.  What I really need is a white fabric with small purple print.  What do you think? 

 These ones are my flannels.  Going to make two pillow cases and a flat sheet with these.

Boy do I need to get downstairs and clean so I can be warm and work on these things.

Another step

Went to Joann's with my Dad this weekend.  Yup, my Dad.  He was more than happy to go and buy fabrics with me.  I bought a bunch of patterns on sale too.  Lots of great sales...I saved $97 dollars...can you believe it?!?  I managed to find some perfect fabric for my Very Hungry Caterpillar quilt, except for one.  It is a cream color with tiny purple flowers but I am not sure I like it with the white that is in the caterpillar fabric.  I will have to take a picture of them and see what you think (if only I could get people to read and comment though).  Got some really cute flannels too.  My daughter is in a toddler bed since there is no room in the kids room for another twin.  She only has one flat sheet to go with it, so some of the flannel with go to making her another along with a cute pillow case.  And the other flannel is for my big boy, a pillow case.  He loves when his sheets are mix and match. 

I better get to cleaning up my sewing space so I can get to working on all these projects I keep talking about.  Need to make sure nothing is against the heater down there too.  It gets awfully cold in the winter down there.  I am so glad I put rug in, instead of tile like the contractor wanted to do. 

Till another day....happy sewing!!

Oh so excited!

My Multi Dot Fabric from the Hungry Caterpillar fabric line came in!!!  Wow, it seems like it takes for ever to get fabric in the mail...  Sorry, I havent taken a picture of it yet.  Maybe you will get a sneak peak at the quilt I am using it for another day.

I am so excited about a giveaway that I just entered.  It can be found at Judi Madsen's blog, Green Fairy Quilts.  I love reading her blog.  She is the most amazing quilter!  Go check it out, great blog and great giveaway (thanks to her husband...hehe)
