Where Have I Been?!?!!?!?

That is a strange question that I don’t have an answer for.

I’ve been at home and at work – nothing fantastic like a trip around the world or even a trip to the big City – I’ve just been around.  I know . . . yawn . . . what a boring existence!


My workplace has decided to go with paperless meetings and have therefore had me researching the ins and outs of laptops versus iPads.  I made my presentation and they loved the iPad idea and I’m just in the process of getting everything that we need put on all eight of them.  Then will come the training part (some of my guys are OLD!), and then eventually the implementation in May of our first paperless meeting.  We made our decision right around the same time as the new iPad2 was ready to launch so decided to wait for eight of these brand new systems.

I love my iPad!

So what else have I been doing when I was away doing nothing?  A little quilting . . . 


These two blocks are for the 2009/2010 Peace by Piece garden theme BOM project.


I’ve added these two blocks of my own . . . just to be different!

I’ve also been working on a little binding . . .



these two should be done very soon and will knock off two more PhD projects from Myra’s challenge (see side bar for details).

I also made two blocks for the 2010/2011 BOM log cabin project that I’m doing with the Peace by Piece group that I belong to in Brandon (sorry girls . . . I promise to show up for a meeting someday soon!)


Oh . . . and I’ve been shopping . . . again!


Half Moon by Moda


More Sunkissed by Sweetwater


Fresh Flowers by Deb Strain (reminds me that Spring must be coming soon).

Stitches n' Giggles is an awesome on-line shop that I just found.  Service and pricing are both fantastic (shipping to Canada – you need to be patient).  I know there must be other on-line shops out there that sell by the individual fat quarter, but this is the first one that I found and I really like choosing exactly the prints that I want. 

Lori even does a follow-up email to make sure that you are enjoying your fabrics and that the order was successfully received.  Go take a peek!

Have a great weekend everyone,

Oooo.....I love your black and white prints! not that I need any more, I have a very healthy black and white stash. The other new fabrics are lovely too, especially Fresh Flowers, very spring-like.

I know this is a quilting blog, but I'd LOVE to see a post about what you decide to put on your iPad. Mine is still on order but I'm hoping to get it next week. I'd love some suggestions for apps that make me productive. :-)

Thank you so much, Marlene! I appreciate your kind words and I'm glad you are happy with your order.

I just recently added a new line of fun and easy patterns so be sure to check those out as well. PLUS, I am expecting Just Wing It! by MoMo
within a week.

Thank you again and please let me know if or how I can help you again.
