Wait, what?

It's almost February? Where did January go? I just took my tree down last week, I think, or was it several weeks ago? I guess time flies when you're having fun! What fun- I just finished two paper for school- one was 50 pages, the other 20. I have a 5 (yep, that's FIVE) page paper to do and wouldn't you know, it's the hardest one. I can't seem to get it done. My internet has been coming and going lately and it seems that every time I wanted to blog, I couldn't get online. UGH.

I got a big box of Weeks hand-dyed wool cuts last week and I've already started some new patterns. I love, love, love working on wool. Hopefully they will go fast and I can post pics later on.

The cardinal quilt is finally back from the quilter and I'll get the binding done soon and photograph it. What I thought would take a couple of weeks turned into a couple of months. When I sent it, I was in a hurry. Obviously,
~~I got over it~~

The new fabric line is in the Benartex warehouse. They are shipping orders. Hopefully, they will be posting pictures on their website soon.

Well, I promised a drawing and we will have one this next week.
How about:
TWO winners- winner chooses 4 free pattern or charts.
Can be spring- or winter- or whatever!
Who is ready for spring?

Email me by January 31 with the word SPRING in the subject line.
Put your name, mailing address and 4 pattern/ chart titles in the body of the email.

I'll choose a winner on February 1st and contact both of them. I'll post the names here, I promise!

I made a Business Page on Facebook- you can see it at:
Click on the link and click LIKE.
I haven't figured out how to add that LIKE button on the blog yet.

Well I know they say it's Winter but it hasn't actually started in the Mid-west yet. It 50 degrees here each day this week and no snow yet. I don't mind so much for myself but my husband and son snow plow in the Winter and they are rearing to go! Looks like another great week ahead!

Christmas was wonderful for us. My sister and brother-in-law were here and we had a relaxing time. I know it's time to take the tree down but I'm just not ready. I like looking at it all lit up still so maybe next week.

I'm almost finished with the new cardinal pattern called Winter's Harmony. I got the first quilt back from the quilter and waiting on the second one- the one I'll photograph for the cover. Betty is sewing the next quilt design for me and I'll get to start applique on it when I get it back from her. I'm waiting patiently for the next line of fabric to show up so I can start those new designs. Quilt Market will be here before you know it.

Still doing homework, writing papers and I have two classes right now so it's really busy around here for the next month. I still have a 4.0 GPA and I want to keep it. With each class, the pressure gets greater! This is the last time I'll take 2 classes at the same time. It's getting harder to juggle it all. The classes are getting harder too - still have a few to go like Business Law, Business Accounting and Financial Management. Oh the pressure of it all!

I am doing some new projects in wool also and I may offer them as a drawing soon. We'll have another drawing for next week so check back. I am updating the website again also.
