I’ve had blogger’s block. What’s a girl to do? I think I need some excitement in my life. Tomorrow is my final class for Flight of Fancyi’ve finished every block except for the words…and that center block, the one with 117″ of 1/8″ bias!!!!!
Did I mention that there was A HUNDRED AND SEVENTEEN INCHES OF EIGHTH INCH BIAS????? Elizabeth from Late Bloomer, did a tutorial for the basket on her blog. I thought it would make it all easy for me to do. I don’t know Elizabeth, so I can totally tell her that while i’m pleased beyond words that she put that whole lakehouse line into one quilt that i loved, with all due respect, i’d sort of like to grab her by the neck and squeeze it until her head comes off for that whole 117″ of 1/8″ bias in the center block, bless her heart.i”M I’m sure I won’t feel the same way when I’m done with that beautiful center block. I tried to get Robin to do it for me, but she didn’t budge. I just love Robin, but c’mon now!!! okay.. so i’ll keep you posted on my progress…. or lack thereof.
now… drumroll… for the exciting news!! becky and joey came over for dinner. they got married late last fall and joey was commenting on how fat becky was and she brought me over a picture…
and there wasn’t ONE baby in there, but TWO!!!!!!!!!! becky is going to have twins and it looks like boys! just what we need, a few more boys in da family!! we’re not positive they are boys yet, but the thought of twins is still very exciting!!! i’ve already started picking out fabric to start working on Nanette’s “In the Leafy Treetops” quilt for them. I’m going to do one in blue and one in red, providing they’re really boys.
I haven’t posted in so long I can’t remember what I’ve been up to….. Melissa and I made some marinara sauce…. i made some lemon shortbread cookies, i’ll post the recipe for them soon. I copied Ina Garten’s shortbread cookie dough recipe and then added some lemon zest and iced them with powdered sugar and fresh lemon juice icing. You have to make sure you cut them THICK and bake them until they are crispy! I’ve been working on my FOF blocks for my class tonight at the local quilt shop
Another drumroll….. my baby got his drivers license yesterday!!!
Okay, so September was a good month afterall… twins, drivers licenses and bit o’ sewing, cooking and canning. No complaints over here.
