Delicious!

I do love me some jelly rolls.



No, no, not that kind.

Definitely not, since I'm on a low carb diet. (Grin)

The kind that I love don't have ANY calories at all!



See what I mean?

Yummmm....look at this "Baltimore Blues" jelly roll from the Fat Quarter Shop!



And check out this one, called "Bread and Butter" by American Jane for Moda Fabrics!



While you are wiping the drool from your keyboard, head over to our sponsor's site and check out this sale!



The folks at the Fat Quarter Shop are focusing on jelly rolls and there might be a neat project coming soon that we'll tell you about . . . so you might want to have at least one of these lovelies in your stash!

Just sayin . .. . 

Love,

Progress, slowly but surely!


Remember my hand-stitching project?

That cute "Maggie's First Dance" quilt from the pattern by Jacquelynne Steves.

I wanted to show you that I'd made some progress!

The centers of the yellow blocks are getting some freehand stitching that will vary from block to block:



I bumped up the contrast to make it easier to see!

And I'm slowly making my way around the pieced blocks with my colored threads -- love how this looks from the back of the quilt:



This is so relaxing and fun!

When it's all done, I'll have a wall-hanging that I can be proud of!


More merriment and mayhem soon!

Love,

I hope you'll be rejoicing with me in the fact that He is risen, for all of us!

Happy Easter!

Yay! A finish!

Last time I posted, I showed you the neat project making placemats with the Soft and Stable product, and some gorgeous batiks . . . 


They're finished just in time for the birthday girl's special day!

You can see I was even auditioning them for my round table . . . no, I'm not keeping them, but I just might make a set for myself!


I'm over the moon happy with how these turned out. I love the Hoffman batiks -- the colors and patterns are just beautiful!


I hope you will try this project, too, and let me know how yours turn out!

Have a lovely weekend!

Love,
