Is it Tuesday AGAIN? Oh my how time is flying! Join Cheryl and I in posting what's tickling you today!
There are a few things tickling me today. First is a package I received yesterday from Martha at Q is for Quilter. Martha found some vintage fabric and thought I might like some - OH YES - look at this gorgeous fabric!
I love it so much! The colors, design, it's vintage but has a very modern feel too - not sure what I'll make yet, but I'm leaning towards curtains, so I can see it all day every day. I think it's perfect for spring and summer and would really lighten and brighten the sewing room, which tends to be pretty dark. Thank you so much Martha!
If you've not been to her blog, you are really missing out. Martha has been working on a wedding for her daughter - right now she's making vintage inspired aprons for the bridal shower. Martha is the Queen of Vintage. Her quilts are awe-inspiring. Go see her blog and wear a bib - check out her sidebar too, she has quite the collection of vintage stitchery patterns as well!
The other thing tickling me today is how much quilting I'm getting done on my Sis Boom quilt.
I have two and a half rows left to quilt. I'm trying to get it finished for Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival on May 13th. I'm pretty pleased with the progress I've made this past week. Not too pleased that I'm so far behind on my blog reading, however - but I can't do it all. I've been watching The Walton's while I work, I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed that show.
The third thing tickling me today is the warm weather. Today it's going to 74F, humid and very summer-like. Of course there's a trade-off, we'll be having some severe storms. Nothing like the south - a very small threat of tornadoes here, but to the south they are having storm after deadly storm. There's been what, 565 tornadoes so far this year? Maybe more, not sure. Just an unbelievable number. Please do keep our southern neighbors in your prayers. And if you're in the risk area, please be safe and keep an eye on the sky.....you are in our prayers.
I'll be doing my month-end post in a few days. How are you doing with your Christmas gift this month? I'm so happy to be done. I also hope to be catching up with your blogs soon. I miss you!
