    I spent Sunday in the sewing room and then migrated to the comfy chairto finish up a binding on a Fall quilt…lol. Well we’ll enjoy it for 10 days before Christmas starts to sneak in! Love those solids!

    Oh I wish… Missed guild and only got a bit of sewing done. But lots of cooking and cuddles. Can’t complain. (Love the top right block!)

    i spent my weekend saying goodbye to melissa. friday, i watched her girls so they wouldn’t be in the way of the movers, saturday, we had a going away party for them, and last night, we had them over for dinner. my husband took them to the airport this morning, and now they’re gone! :( it sucks!

    oh, but i’m glad you were able to spend it in your sewing room!

    I wish I did… I had three boys and no husband… I spent it chained to a rugby pitch and then a washing machine… sigh.

    I was lucky enough to spend the entire weekend in the craft room (or dining room if you’re my husband). I finished an entire quilt top that I have had the fabric precut for almost 2 years now (fail). Your color blocks look great, but I am entirely infatuated with your owl. They are my favorite animal on earth and yours is ADORABLE!

      Thanks Lauren!

      I was super lucky and got the owl in a swap the LAMQG did. He’s made from a “Melly and Me” pattern, called Hooty and Tweet.

    I have been following your blog ever since I found your quilts in a Google Image search over a year ago. I love your work and have totally been inspired by your blog and others that I have found through your site. I also love Project Runway and was watching the video clip of how Ping got on the show, and the person who told her she made it was YOU??!! I totally did a double-take! I had no idea you were a part of my favorite show – one more reason to blog-stalk you! You are so very cool, indeed. :)

    My heart just stopped when I saw the pic of your cat. She/He looks exactly like my cherished childhood kitty! I hope your baby is as sweet and feisty as Calicoon was :)

    Beautiful quilt…but what got my attention is the color of your kitchen. I just painted mine this summer that same color…and the cabinets are white like yours! It’s a fun combination!
