Totally inspired!

Had such a wonderful weekend at 'Inspired Stitches' retreat hosted by Quilt Fabric Delights. Totally inspired with all the yumminess that was there for us to see, buy and enjoy. Met up with familiar faces and lots of other bloggers, that was so good to put faces to blogs. Thanks to Sarah and her wonderful team of helpers, they made us feel so welcome and truly spoilt us. I can't wait for next year. I'll post some pictures in the next few days of our projects and all the fun we had.
Until then,

Some weeks it seems like I achieve nothing and other weeks seem very productive. This week has been a productive one. For me and my family..DH has been painting inside the house.
I have finished Gail's block 4 of her "Christmas Wish" free BOM and I have finished all but one block of my UFO quilt and then I just need to put it together....I do hope before the end of April. I also cut out 2 quilt tops from some fabric I purchased some 15 years ago and tucked it away for that special quilt, which I had no idea what quilt design I was going to do when I purchased it, just new I had to have the fabric.... Does this happen to any one else, have you ever fallen in love with a fabric and had no idea what you need it for, just know you have to have it! Thats me, all the time I love fabrics with certain patterns or colors and know I need it now....for later...Lol. Well I finally have decided on the design and have started cutting it I need to find the time to sew them week...Lol.

Here is a peek at a what else I have been working is a secret for now but I will tell is using a favorite fabric of mine "Cottage Charm" by Heather Mulder Peterson for Henry Glass fabrics...I just loved it when I saw it and had to have some for this...... Check out Heathers blog for lots of inspiration...

Have a lovely weekend
