Good Things

Hellloooo! I haven't deserted the blog, I swear. Life has been busy and time seems to escape me each and every day. It doesn't help that I have been deep in the throes of researching and writing a paper on crown lengthening for school. Riveting. ;)

A few weeks back I entered a give-a-way on dear Trish's blog. I was tickled pink when Trish contacted me and told me I was the winner of this adorable owl candle holder! Trish is a sweetheart. Do stop by and check out her lovely blog and fantastic quilts. :) Thank you Trish!
I have found some sewing time. A *little*. I fell off the FWQAL bandwagon the last couple weeks and made zero blocks. So, this week I squeezed in 2 of them. I believe the one below is called grape basket? I'm too lazy to pull the book out and check the name. ;) LOL
This one, I haven't the foggiest what the name is. Hill and Valley maybe? Oh gosh, I need to write the names down or keep the book nearby!
I also sewed up this mini quilt about a week ago. Now it sits, waiting for a middle, a backing and binding!
I'll leave you with a couple kitty pictures. Here's Harry guarding my stack of Robert Kauffman Kona solids. ;) Found them at Hobby Lobby! Yay!
Tex. Being the lovey that he is.
Enjoy your weekend! Any exciting and/or creative plans??

Hi, Laura! It's nice to see you back here ;)! And thanks a lot for the piece of advice on hair issues ;), hehe.

Congrats on having won that cute owl and hugs to you and your furry pets! Oh, my, Harry is so special, you should address him as Master Harry, haha!

Have a great weekend! ;D
