Thursday Thoughts

  • I have been quilting every night this week.
  • I know, it's an honest-to-goodness Easter Miracle.
  • Including a big bunny hopping around my sewing room.
  • But that may have just been Sam dressed up in an old princess costume with some bunny ears her Nana gave her last weekend.
  • These things don't faze me anymore.
  • It's probably sacrilegious to say it but my favorite part of Easter is that it means you can buy Reese's Peanut Butter Cup eggs.
  • Forget those circle 2-packs, the egg is where it's at.
  • I may or may not have had 4 (OK five) of them so far.
  • Since Wednesday.
  • I stopped giving up chocolate and wine for Lent years ago.
  • But I don't think the miracle would have happened without the aroma of chocolate and peanut butter lingering in the air and on my lips.
  • That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
  • Anyways now that the religious portion of this post is over, here's a little of what I've been working on:
  • I watched Jenny's video over at Missouri Quilt Co. on using their Wacky Web template to make a spiderweb quilt, and was hooked. 
  • It was very cool.
  • I had several charm packs of Kate Spain's Good Fortune on hand.
  • Added a little Kona Ash for the background, and away I went!
  • I'm still piecing.
  • And piecing.
  • And piecing.
  • This is a simple, but time consuming quilt.
  • Especially since I want to make it King size for my new bed.
  • Oh yeah, did I mention we're (DH and I, not the kids, although Sam seems to think she's included in all bed purchases for some crazy reason) getting a new bed delivered tomorrow?
  • We are.
  • Hooray!
  • Maybe now neither of us will roll out of bed bent in half from back/joint/old-age-sets-in-early-when-you-have-kids pain.
  • I'll let you know.
  • In the meantime, I'll still be strip-piecing away on this quilt. 
  • What's a little annoying with the charm packs and strip-piecing is that you run out of the colors or prints you like most very quickly.
  • I almost wish they'd let you custom-make your precuts using the fabrics you like most, or want the most of.
  • Somebody get to working on that for me, OK?
  • Thanks!
  • Have a great weekend...check for a new podcast episode by Sunday.
  • I know, the Easter miracles just keep coming don't they?

  4. haha i totally agree with you on the reeses eggs, i think its the higher peanutbutter to chocolate ratio that makes them so much better. nice job on the spiderweb quilt, i love those colors.
