"Freshly Watered" a Proper Introduction

Since last year was such a huge whirlwind for me,  I never really had a chance to make a proper introduction for something that was pretty major for me. This past year I was able to add new colors and designs to my exsisting ribbon collection!

So, I continued with the theme "Freshly Watered" and added cute watering cans and swirling tulips to the sweet flower girl and garden friends ribbons.

It really is super fullfilling to see your own sketches and doodlings realized in something tangable. Stay tuned for a couple ribbon projects in the next weeks.

Spring is just around the corner... I can hardly wait, and you?

Confused?... Let Me Explain

Well, I would actually say that my husband is to blame... perhaps I should explain...

... this past week while searching for some new gadget (aka toy) on one of those big online shopping sites,  my hubby asked me if there was anything that I would like to add to his order while he was at it. There were, in fact, two things that I had on my wish list. So, one really could come to quite a logical conclusion that it was his fault... (right?)

No, you are not having hallucinations, no, you don't need to adjust your computer screen, no,  you don't have my blog mixed up with someone else's, no, I don't flip out quilts like pancakes, BUT... the reality of it is that you may have just found yourself stumbling into the realm of a highly distracted person.

One new quilting quilting book (my FIRST ever!), a little snip, snip, and a few hours later, I found myself starting another quilt! How crazy is that?!? I must say that I am very pleased with the progress that I have made so far, and it might appear that this could end up being my first quilt.

I guess it might be quite fitting since these fabrics are from the lady who inspired me to start selling fabrics in the first place.

... until our next distraction encounter.

Piece by Piece

So, how about if I let you all in on a little something that I've been working on over the last couple of months. Nope, no baby news! It's actually something that I am somewhat hesitant about sharing. Perhaps the enormity of it has been one of the main reasons that I've never done it in the first place….

... I started a quilt.

 There it is... wheh, it's out there now. No pressure huh? I've been kicking the idea around for quite some time now, and shortly before Christmas, I decided to take the plunge. This is actually something that is pretty big for me since I like quick little projects where I have something to show for it after the end of the weekend.

I actually marvel at some of the quilting blogs out there flipping out quilt after quilt like they are pancakes. But I assure you that this is not what you will get here. No, no... I am still too easily distracted, too easily whisked away by a flight of the moment inspiration that leaves far too many UFO's decorating my "to-be-finished" pile. In fact, it's something that I don't even foresee as being completed by the end of the year. 

BUT, I do not intend for this to remain unfinished. Sew a little bit… on the backburner... sew a little more... back on the backburner, well, you get the idea. And I am actually O.K. with this. I have been saving up some of my favorite Anna fabrics, and I have every intention, no… I am determined, that this WILL end up being the quilt that lands on my bed one day.

I guess with the line of work that I am in,  it is high time that I started…. how about you? Any long term projects in the making?
