So . . . what are you up to?

Turned out that I had a couple of sick days at home this week and was able to start a new little project.

Here is a little tease . . . don't you love those colors? So bright and cheery - just what a sick old gal needed to cheer her up!

I also got to play with my new Omnigrid 96L ruler to cut these fancy little triangles - yes, that is a little Honey Bun strip you see there! Did you know (I'm sure you did) that there is only 10 strips in one of those little honey buns? So that makes designing a pattern using just them a little more challenging . . . luckily this Spring Magic line matches white background fabric very nicely.

These blocks are from a workshop that I took quite a few months ago and you may remember my desperate search for the cat fabric. At our retreat a couple of weeks ago I managed to cut out some more of the drunkard's path shapes and yesterday I got to lay them out on the floor to see what design I could come up with. Now to get out the pins and start lining things up . . . this will still be awhile before it becomes anything.

Make sure and stop by QuiltQua to see how you can get your name in for this beautiful package of fabric. Love these colors!

And while you're out and about in blogland checking things out, why not also stop by This 'n That Fabrics to check out their fabulous prices on fabrics. You might just find something for your next project or to finish up a UFO!

Have a great weekend.

'til next time,
