speaking of...

Pin It
I have a few housekeeping things to report at the moment.

It took me a while, but I figured out two different technical things tonight.

You see, the little boy has not been sleeping well lately, and when he's up in the night, the hubs takes care of him (I get the baby girl if she has trouble, and took care of Steiger when he was tiny of course)... when reading stories to the boy tonight, Jay fell asleep on the floor and so he went to bed early.  I wasn't quite ready myself, so I decided to play on the computer and take care of some computer business I've wanted to take care of.

Look to your right please.

Social media buttons/icons eluded me.  But tonight, I figured out how to make my own, and give them code. /beaming smile
I mean -- they're chubby stars AND have stitchy lines around them!  I'm not 100% pleased with the colors, but they'll work. :)

One of them links to my new facebook page.  Feel free to "like" me -- I'll give away a pdf pattern of winner's choice to a "fan."

I'm still trying to fix the code for the Treasure Boxes Quilt along button -- if any one wants to help a girl out, here's where you can find the picture.


And one last picture - last week I *might* have received a couple orders.  I have a dream of a fall quilt done in all texty backgrounds... I *might* have gone a little overboard... and no, I'm not sure when I'll actually be able to get to this idea, but I will try. :)

a little fabric binge

And yes -- I'm more of a cream/beige girl than pure black and white.
And those little music notes in the middle speak to the girl who took 15 years of piano lessons. ♥

P.S. Piecing directions for Treasure Boxes coming later this week!  Get that cutting done!

P.P.S. After re-reading this, I realize I might need to go to bed myself... I sound tired.

What an amazing texty stack!! I love Violet's Madrona Road story and I mixed that creamy large hunk right in the middle of your stack with Liberty lawns and it was perfect with them. LOVE!!!

Your social networking buttons are super fab. Well done!

Haha! I LOVE the texty-ness. And I am in exactly the same boat with the fall quilt and the texty background... and the creamier vs. the whiter. All good reasons that we are friends here on the great wide interweb. :) Now, if only I could get some code cracking under my belt!

I can't wait to see what kind of amazing quilt you produce from those beautiful fabrics.

He he.. I played the flute for 15 years and I too like the note fabric :) I'll happily give a LIKE on Facebook a try but so far I know I'm the only quilter in my circles so not sure that me doing it will have a great impact. A shame though because I love your patterns. Going to the quilt shop next weekend to find a solid for the Candy pattern and really, really looking forward to get started on it. The rest will be made in Kate Spain's Christmas fabric 'Joy'

Nicely done on the buttons! They're fab! I just got some of that creamy "letters from Jane" fabric. Love it.
