I sometimes get this overwhelming fear that you are going to forget about me if I don't post something! I really do! When I have numerous post, I think they have got to be getting sick of me! I don't know where the sweet spot is, and I'm going err on the side of caution...because I really don't want you to forget about me...see, I'm so needy!
I do have a few things in the works, but nothing that is worthy of sharing yet. So, why not toot the horn of a few friends?! You know it and I know it, there are no better friends than our quilty bloggy friends! What would we ever do without this amazing community of kind, talented and inspiring people we meet nearly everyday on the internet?
I received a wonderful surprise in the mail yesterday! What makes it so special? I did not expect it at all! I am a hard person to surprise. Surprise and shock! But this little lady did just that to me!
Sarah who blogs at Cedar Fork Stitches, sent me a sweet little surprise! You know the Mini Mini Quilt Craze, tiny little quilts the perfect size for a little imp...I love me a mini mini!
Surprise, surprise! From the 'Big Sky Country', Sarah made a special little quilt just for me! I love the colors and love that they are set off with a shadow. I know where that came from!!
I was not expecting this at all, but the real surprise is on the back! Are you ready? This is hilarious! For reference...this mini is 3 3/4" square.
Only Sarah would put hanging corners on a mini mini! I about wet myself when I say that!! It makes me almost want to torture my husband by making him cut a board to hang it!!
Note the Shot Cotton on the back...Sarah...do you know me, or what?! I was completely shocked and totally blown away!
Speaking of blown away! I am always amazed, shocked and so, so happy when someone actually uses my tutorials and shares their project with me! I can't imagine any thing better than that when it comes to my quilting journey.
I made a Charm Pack Shadow Block tutorial a while back, and recently Peg shared her project on Instagram. Really how amazing is this? Total Spring, and the shadow is just pure perfection!
I seriously get butterflies in my stomach when I see what others have made from one of my tutorials! It's got to be the dream we all have, inspiring others. Thank you Peg, I really love this version of my tutorial and thank you so very much!
Then you know those retreats...where we attend and spend every single waking hour quilting? Where we need yet another weekend to recover from out weekend? I've only done one and can not wait to feel the after effects of another!
Sweet Anja, who has been a steady commenting buddy on my blog for quite sometime. You know her... she is one who is a faithful follower and a constant, if you don't know Anja...check out her blog: Anja Quilts. Anja recently went on her first retreat with her guild. My advice to her was to bring lots of projects and pre-cut if you can!!
I recently finished a tutorial for a 'Mini Charm Square Wonky Block' and Anja decided it might be a good retreat project to take along with her!
And it was! It is such a quick and easy tutorial for those mini charm squares we all have laying around! I love the whimsical, yet wild side of this one! Frankly, it's just fun! You have bright, a bit wonky, a little ca-razy, and a whole lot of perfect! I'm so happy this was one of Anja's projects for her first guild retreat!
Thank you Sarah, Thank you Peg and Thank you Anja! You guys are the best...of the best!
