Little Miss Sunshine is incapacitated so she's asked me to take over hosting Pyjama Party Sunday for her this week.
Incapacitated could mean so many things couldn't it? She could be in re-hab , or having a wild weekend with George Clooney or in jail or on a secret mission for ASIO. When she wanders back to Blogland she'll probably let you know what she's been up to but in the meantime I'm kind of having fun making up stories about what might be going on. Feel free to spread scurrilous rumours of your own until she re-surfaces. You can also feel free to link up to this post so that fabulous people can visit to see what you spent your Sunday doing regardless of whether you stayed in your pyjamas or piked and actually got dressed.
Sunday at Maison Pyjamas was slow and lazy. I love Sundays like that.
Google Earth called and congratulated me on having a toilet paper stash that could be seen on satellite from deep space. Today I came to the realisation that when the stack is taller than you are and there are only two bums in the house you know you have a hoarding problem . You should see my toothpaste stash.
I made some more labels for quilts ...I wish I could remember my last name. I'm getting tired of leaving those spaces blank. Amnesia is no laughing matter.
I finally sewed 15 circles down to the centre of the Dresden Blocks and I used the sewing machine to do it because I'm lazy like that. I like the way they look and I'm amazed I haven't managed to screw this project up yet. I just keep loving it more and more. However , it's starting to feel like I've been making this quilt since Adam was a nipper.
Suzan from The Reluctant Quilter sent me a chocolate cake recipe this morning. Naturally I had to try it out because it had chocolate in the title. She described it as "so good you want to slap your grandma. "
She was right ....I swear I ate half a pound of frosting straight from the bowl. I couldn't eat dinner because I had totally pigged out on cake. Now I feel like throwing up.
And for all my "It's all about the process " talk recently , I finished three quilts this week... I've been binding like a crazy lady.
First up is my Fairy Garden Quilt which I'm donating to a local women's shelter.
40 x 32 inches.
Rainbow Charlie is finished. Thanks to Ms. Seams Inspired for the name for this one. I love this quilt. By the way I've decided that Blogland can name all my quilts from here on in and I'll give the person who comes up with the best name credit on the label , thereby immortalising you forever (or as long as the quilt lasts)
This one measures 44 inches by 58 inches
And my favourite quilt is this one...
From "A to Z for Little P" is finally finished and I adore it.
52 inches by 68 inches : the perfect size for Little P
I sent From A to Z off to my magical quilting goddess to be quilted and Sharon at Patchwork on Parade did a fantastic job. This quilt looks ultra special and exactly like I imagined it would (And Sharon , it was finished at 9 pm last night)
Add some fabric and op shopping to round out my week .
These dishes struck me as perfect for an afternoon tea party. More on that later this week.
I've totally blown the 100 yards thing ...just like we all knew I would. My name is Shay and I'm a fabric addict.
After 8 months of unemployment (aside from about 30 days of casual work ) Mr. P got an offer for a permanent job on Friday and starts tomorrow. To say I'm deliriously happy would be an understatement. It hadn't been a good week and this news changed everything. Thank you to all my wonderful blog friends who have supported us with kind words , thoughts and even prayers through the last 8 months. This blogging community is an amazing place, and I'm deeply grateful to be a part of it and for the friendships I've made here.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and may the craft be with you. I'm off to shave my legs . I bet I lose three pounds.
