I'm a winner!!!

I can't believe it, I won "Quiltin' Like Crazy"'s fabric giveaway. I never win! Now I have to figure out what I want to use it for...

In other news, I am working like crazy both at work and at home. Actually, I am quilting like crazy, hehe! I am trying to get a couple more quilts and some gift items (like crayon rolls and ornaments) made in time for "Art in the Garden" on December 5th. It snuck up on me. I have 1 quilt partly quilted and another nearly quilted and I was hoping to knock out one or two more small ones over the holiday weekend.

Can I quit work to quilt & craft all the time?

Having a rough day at work and was just thinking it would be so nice to quit work and make stuff all day. But I bet the bank would like me to keep making my mortgage payments so I guess crafting will just be for after work for now :-(

Awww man, I am in T-R-O-U-B-L-E

One of my bee buddies posted a link to this new online fabric store and like an idiot I clicked on it. As if I needed more temptation. They have a gorgeous selection of fabric.

It's official!!!

Totally unrelated to crafting but a big moment for me & the Mr. Our horrible neighbors unexpectedly moved out a couple months ago, we kind of assumed they were probably getting foreclosed upon. And today we came home to find the official notice posted on the door & their water turned off. Happy news!
So if anyone is looking for a 3 bedroom, 2 bath townhouse in Tucson, I know a place you could buy for cheap :-) But only if you'll be nice & respectful neighbors...

Joining the Bee

I've been wanting to join a virtual quilting bee for awhile and I found one I want to join. Now I just need to find a group, hopefully will very soon!

The Block Party blog is hosting a quilt-along and small bees are forming from it. One block a month... let's see if I can keep up!

The Block Party gals are going to be writing a book about virtual bees and will be featuring photos of participants' work from the quilt-along. Pretty cool, right?

There's also a fabric giveaway going on so get on over to the Block Party blog!!!
