Mid Week . . .

sleep in! Oh my gosh . . . I never sleep in!

I'm one of those people that is ALWAYS up before the alarm goes off. Not this morning though, I was almost an hour after the alarm - which didn't work for some wonderful reason. So it was a bit of a rushed start to the mid-week day.

Here is a nice soothing picture - yellows and a beautiful blue. The fabrics are from my ever growing stash of fat quarters and the mug is from the 125th Anniversary celebration last weekend for the R.M. of Oakland. I couldn't resist taking one of these little beauties to my sewing room to store some of my favorite yellows in. Did I ever tell you that yellow is my favorite color and I have never, ever, made a yellow quilt? I'll need to build my stash just a little more to do a full size quilt . . . but at least I've started collecting!

And . . . speaking of my ever growing stash of fat quarters . . . the newest shipment from The Fat Quarter Shop has arrived.

Mary Engelbreit's "Isn't Christmas Jolly" collection is here AND it includes blacks! For Christmas? Of course, why not? Black is my favorite color, before or after yellow? . . . I'm not sure which order to list my two favorites. Anyway, I think that black makes the green, yellow and red pop - can't wait to come up with something to use it in.

Look at those colors and that adorable border print . . . em? What pattern could we use for this grouping?

Speaking of favorites . . . daisies do it for me! So cheerful.
Have a great rest of the week and
don't forget the "PPP Giveaway"!
'til next time,
