Dusting Off the Ole Blog

Sorry for the very long and unintentional blog break. The bad news is that I haven't been crafting at all until just a couple of days ago. The good news is that I am now completely caught up on my movies! because that is all I have been doing. I am back to my sewing space though... see.

Recently I bought an ugly cork bulletin board for my wall space since I had just been tacking things to my wall. And since I can't do plain, boring, and ugly, I made it me.

I had to use black model paint for the frame since acrylic wouldn't stick and there was no way I was going to sand. I then mod podged on the hilco mushroom fabric (you can get some here) and put some "every thing looks better with pom pom trim" on it. And I love it! Yesterday I decided to finally join in on the Farmers Wife Quilt Along.

Very late, but I am having a lot of fun with these little block. Here is what I've made so far.

yay! It's Katelyn! I love the cork board! The pompom trim is great! The farmer's wife quilt along looks interesting. I've liked what I've seen others do. It'll be fun to see yours!

Good to have you back! I love the cork board, and the trim is so you!
I have thought just a tiny bit about the farmers wife quilt a long, but NO for me.

Love your blocks and your bulletin board!

She's back!
Cute bulletin board, I expect no less...
Oh you did NOT join the FWQA! Another quilter down! I have been strongly resisting cause Jess WILL in fact kill me if I start another project. Yours will be cute and make me wish I had but I will not. I mean it.

Because of the girls from Simplify, lovely litle handmades and a little sweetnes and now you, I want to do the farmers wife quilt along!!! You three have the cutest colors and prints. Most of the others are too old lady for me or too I-just-used-whatever-I-had-in-my-stash-regardless-of-whether-it-looked-ok blocks. I'm not trying to be mean. It's just a personal thing and your blocks appeal to me!! Thank you for posting this!!!
