Fell off the wagon already

Yup...I fell off the "no new projects until I get 5 UFO's done" wagon already..and I blame Marge! Over at Mysteries for Relay (button on the left), she had a free mystery yesterday and try as I might, I couldn't resist! The best part was on this one, she gave directions so that you could make it whatever size you I opted for the tiny 24" square one. I figured that really didn't count as cheating..well, not much, anywho. Here is my new table topper made with the mystery #15 pattern:

I think this turned out adorable!! Thanks, Marge, for another great mystery. I can't wait until September and the next one!!

Yesterday I got to sew with Shellie. I actually showed up half an hour late as I only woke up 3 minutes before I was supposed to meet her!! We only got to sew for about 3 1/2 hours, but boy, did we make progress on our Jitterbug quilts! Better than that, I got to spend some time chatting with her. Hard to believe that it took the internet to bring us together though we only live 20 minutes apart. She is definitely one of the blessings God has given me!
Shellie also brought along the fabric she bought for us (can you believe that not only did she buy me a donut and coffee to get going, she also gifted this fabric to me, too!!) to make the table runner from Marie Bostwick's 3rd book in the Cobbled Court series! Unfortunately, it took all our time just to remake the hst blocks that we goofed up a few months ago for Jitterbug, so we will have to wait to start on the tablerunner. I am determined to get the Jitterbug top completed and at least 1, if not 2 quilts all quilted up this week. Wish me luck!!!!


  1. That is very cute! And since you have it already into a top, I wouldn't worry about having started it yesterday.

  2. Good luck! I have no doubt you will get a couple done this week and look forward to seeing your Jitterbug.

  3. I love it. The border is great fabric.
    I want to do the same. Making headway...
    Not sure how fast I will get the mystery finished.

  4. very nice,thanks for sharing,Amy
