A moment on Monday with Nancy January 19

Hello everyone!  It's hard to believe it's been a week since I last chatted.  It's been a busy week.  I've been trying to get everything caught up before Bob and I leave next week for Texas.  And I have been able to get a lot done, but...."it" hit me!  Ideas and inspiration for a new project!  Of all times...I really don't have time to start a new project but when "it" hits you, there is no other choice but to go with "it"!  Plus,  I LOVE starting new projects. :) I can't wait to share pictures with you.  It's black, white and peacock.  All solids.  I usually don't work much with solids but I do like the way they look with the right project. :)

I've been busy working on "the bag" and writing down instructions.  Hopefully we will be offering a class for "the bag" this spring.  We got in the cutest fabric and I just had to use it.  The colors are so bright and cheerful. I love it!

Another project I've been wrapping up is a Sandy Gervais layer cake pattern, The Same But Different, using Rambling Rose Layer Cake and yardage.  Really cute and it just happens to be one of my favorite fabric lines.  

So many new things going on at Stitchin Tree and The Quilters Cottage.  I hate to leave with so many exciting things happening! Like I said, Bob and I are leaving for Texas next week and won't be back until March!  There is no telling what Teresa will be up to while I'm gone.  But I will be sure and let you all know what I'm doing while in Texas. :)  I plan on taking hand projects to keep me busy.  Who knows, maybe I can get closer to finishing a project.  : /  

My very best to you all,
Happy Quilting,

Moments on Monday January 12, 2015

Happy Birthday Teresa!!!!  Happy Birthday Teresa

Today, January 12, is Teresa's birthday.  Try and stop by anytime this week to wish her Happy Birthday.  This afternoon we should have cake but it probably won't last long. :)

Happy New Year everyone!!! It's amazing how fast time passes.  I haven't shared anything with y'all since last year!  (teeheehee)  Bob and I had a quiet time at home wishing in the New Year this year.  But we did manage to stay awake until midnight. :)

So many things going on I don't know where to start.....hmmm....oh yeah, Teresa had us (the girls) out to the cottage for a little one day retreat.  We always have such fun. We all had an assignment for a
new quilt design that Teresa is working on.

I can't wait to see what Teresa is going to do with this. :)

I finally got my laundry room project done.  My laundry room is upstairs and is really a nice size room. Over time it became a real mess, as it was used as my closet that just happened to have a washer and dryer in it.  Oh also had a clothes rack that kept falling over, a chair and an ironing board.  Well, you all knows what happens when you have a chair handy....yep, everything gets tossed on and over that as well  as the ironing board. I didn't think to take a picture until I had it halfway cleared out 

Of course in this picture you don't get to see how really bad is was. And now......

It sure makes me feel a lot better. :)

Now that is done I must concentrate on my sewing room.  I was really surprised how easy those shelves were to put up...hmmm....maybe I need some in my sewing room.  Speaking of sewing room... I just finished the cutest new baby quilt for the shop.  You are actually  getting a sneak peak. We will be kitting this quilt and did I say, it's a real cutie?  See for yourself

I'm working on another bag with the cutest fabric. Just in time for spring/summer. I'll share that next time.   I am working on the pattern to share.  

Wishing you all the best,
Happy Quilting,
