The next block in the Block Party quilt along is up. Check it out!
Put this little house up on Flickr yesterday (for the Bee Imaginative bee) and people seem to like it so I thought I’d pop it up over here on the blog too.
Yes, Mr. Gnome IS off gathering more mushrooms while deer & birdie wait for him at home. He’ll be back soon. And then they will all enjoy some mushroom soup.
Recently obsessed with this color combo.
Been trying different things….

I’ve been super busy with tons of stuff recently – sorry the ol’ blog is feeling the pain!
Otherwise, we’re up to TWENTY SEVEN THIRTY branches of the Modern Quilt Guild!! Can you believe it!?! And more are in the works. Amazing stuff! Modern quilters unit!
Jenny’s having a bake sale at Home Ec. – all proceeds go to Doctors Without Borders so if you’re in LA on Sunday be sure to stop in and buy some delicious baked goods!!
That’s how it’s been feeling the past week or so. Something about the new year has made people eager to start something new and the Modern Quilt Guild it reaping the benefits!
Here at the LA branch we recently had our first sewing day – six hours of chatting and sewing BLISS!
SO many people out there starting new branches! Check out the new site where you can find out if there’s a guild near you to join.
Got the baby quilt top all finished up. Super simple and quick to put together – all I’ve had time for recently!
Lots of polka dots and cute animals! Perfect for a baby.
Thanks for all of your kind words about Project Runway. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the season holds!
And on a different note, I’m sure you’ve all already seen the amazing Craft Hope etsy shop that’s raising money for Doctors Without Borders in Haiti. Perfect place to go shopping if you want to.
Tonight season 7 of Project Runway, which I cast, premieres!
