On Monday, I received a package from Cheri @ Quilts by Cheri.  When I opened the box, there was an explosion of beautiful fabric scraps and it looked like this on my cutting table.

This kind of thing makes me soo happy!  I love fabric.  I love seeing it, touching it, and piecing it into quilts.
I could hardly wait to get busy, but I had orders to fill.  Yesterday, I finally finished quilting the quilt for my sister-in-law and I finished up the crib quilt in the frame, so I dove into this lovely pile of scraps for some applique.  The colors lended themselves to Fall.  So, here is what I did.

What do you think?  There are lots of projects to do with these fabrics.  I use everything.  The tiny scraps left from these projects go into my dolls as stuffing, so nothing is wasted.

Thanks Cheri!  Can you tell I'm a fabriholic!
Happy Day Everyone!!

Lovely Weather We're Having

It's so nice here in Virginia at the moment.  Loving the cooler temps. and the beginnings of the colorful Fall season.  

I've been battling a severe cold/flu like illness, but am on the mend with only a lingering cough to contend with.  I very seldom get sick, so when it happens, it knocks me for a loop. 

This week I have finished quilting a full size quilt for my nephew's room.  Just finished the binding yesterday and got it delivered this morning.  No pictures.  Just didn't enter my mind to take any before I sent it on it's way. 

I am currently working on a crib quilt to sell at the coming shows.  My next show will be the last weekend in Sept. at Floyd County High School.  This is a much anticipated show each year.  It's has grown into a pretty large show.  We fill up 2 gyms and all the outdoor space as well.  This is a very organized show and a pleasure for the vendors to deal with.  They shuttle people in and out all day and do a great job of taking care of their artisans and crafters. The traffic is great and I usually am very successful at this one.  Pray for us, that this year will be such.

Happy Day and Blessings to all.
