Anyway, This is a quilt I started in TX, in the Spring and then was set aside as Life just smacked me down with crisis after crisis, after crisis.
Well, as I reclaim my life back I am working diligently at using my "free" time to complete the projects that have been waiting since the Spring crisis began. This is project #2, HA!
I would give credit to the designer (even if I did make it much wider than the pattern, to fit my sister's table...hey, there's another theory...it could be quilt envy! This one is TJessy's and Sandy could be jealous. HMMM. What do you think??? Yeah, Sandy could be making mine look bad because I didn't gift it to her...bad sister, bad!) LOL! But for the life of me, I can't find the pattern to see who designed it, duh!

A HoHoHo Kit!
This is the cutest penny rug ever. It has everything in it to make it as soon as it arrives, even the floss is included! It must have gotten lost at some point because I had no clue it was there. Isn't it great when you find stuff you didn't know you had? If I had the time to make it I would hoard it, I would... so shoot me! LOL!
I wont be making up this kit again so I am sad to see him go. Isn't it gorgeous? I love it; but I know he'll find a good home.
I just had to share, I love finding unexpected treasures... don't you?

I guess knowing what sewing machine you have is a BIG thing for some folks but I honestly don't know much about machines. I just like the ones that go BRUUUMMMM, BRUUUMMMM instead of CLACK,CLACK (that's literally the sound my Singer made. REALLY!)...don't laugh at me!
So I bought the one Sandy said was going to purr and that was that. I did not however buy one like Sandy's because she has a BIG Girl machine. Hers purs AND does tricks. LOL! No, I don't know what kind she has...I just know that my machine wants to be like her machine when she grows up, LOL! Another digit ($$$$) and I could have one like hers but I like to stay in the triple digits, thankyouverymuch!
Anyway, I had to take my little Brum,Brum (her new name now that I have shocked the world) to be serviced because if she made any more noises she would qualify as a clunker. Well, I decided to "look around" and look what I brought home... OMG! She is the cutest little thing! Yes, she is a smaller machine (the salesperson said she was good for classes.) and I thought she was good for piecing my new swap blocks! Woo-HOO! I even received a 1/4" foot with the little guide "thingie" (as a freebie/bonus) to make sure my blocks are not wonky. Hee-hee... I'm so fancy. I have TWO sewing machines, LOL!
OK, and if I could only remember their make and model maybe I can play with the Big Girls...wonder if I need to know the serial numbers too...HMMM??? Well, I do know that they both go BRUMMMBRUMMM when I press the pedals, LOL! Does your machine go BrummmBrummm or do you actually KNOW the make and model of your machine right off he top of your head??? C'mon, be honest! Do you???

OOps, I forgot to mention that the cupcake is an original design by Joanna, she has four different ones, one just sweeter than the next. When I saw them hanging in her kitchen I just knew I wanted one for my swap quilt and she was generous enough to allow me to use her original pattern. Thanks Joanna, I could not have made this cutie without your cupcake! B=)

I might not be fast but I am steady so here you go...Wall#2, TADA! OK, so it's not all that much but you know what they say, "Rome was not built in a day!"
Now I am taking the rest of the day to complete the cupcake quilt...don't ask, I have beading to do... again, don't ask, LOL! I promise to share but I have to figure it out first . The quilt is soooo wonderful. All in wooly Flannels, just adorable. But now I must embelish it to make it "fancy/art-sy(Is this even a word? LOL!)" Anway, I'm just claiming it as an adventure, my walk on the Art Quilt Wild Side, hahahaha!~ Stay tuned! B=)

I have to upload these goodies but you know, it's just little old me and this is a big job ladies. Please be patient.
As you can see, I'm definitely moving in; slowly...one corner at a time!

Yes, Jenny of Elefantz (yeah, I know...I misspelled it; I can't help it, I was thinking elephant as in big trunk and the such!) and Stephanie from Stitches by Steph were the lucky winners of the two Wooly kits.
Thank you to all who joined in the fun! Brenda=)

I wont be making any more of these kits for the shoppe any time soon (my plate is just too full of inventory that needs to be uploaded. Yes ladies, the patterns will all be back soon!) which makes these a real find. I'm psyched. Someone is going to have such a good time! W00-HOO!
