Monday Rise and Shine


Look what followed me home this weekend! It's not fancy smancy and doesn't do a lot of stand up and cheer tricks but it's faithful and loyal. How could I turn it away? LOL. Then we made a quick trip to pick out fabrics for my first quilt top in at least 5 years! Of course I forgot a few colors and other essentials so another trip to the fabric store is on my to do list for later this week! You don't hear me complaining! *big grin*

I made a list of quilt tops and table toppers that are on my "gotta do" list. I am sure more will be added as I begin looking around again! Working in a fabric store is alot like working in a candy shop. For awhile it is a dream come true but you get to a point when you just don't want to even see the stuff in your off hours! I am finally ready to shop, fondle and drool again! LOL.

Our long weekend was filled with beautiful weather! We both had doctor appointments, ran a few errands and just enjoyed the pleasant days!. I also stopped to pick up some more DMC so that I could kit up several more designs! The mail brought a nice surprise and I got Beth's new sampler! I was able to get quite alot done on my current WIP and hope to have it finished up within the next several days!

Thank you all for stopping by. I always enjoy your visits! Until next time - stay safe, stay happy and stay well!

Congratulations on your purchase! You'll have to let me know how you like the machine. I may follow your footsteps and get one as well if you like it! Fondling fabric -- yum! :D

There is much to say about loyalty :)
My little singer sings every time I put it through the paces :)
Will enjoy seeing your creations!

Congrats on the new machine! My Singer had zilcho bells and whistles but it got the job done, and that's the main thing! I am hoping to pick up a new machine here (different voltage requirements, so the Singer stayed in the US when we moved). I'd love to get back into quilting.
