Good Morning!!

Friday.... great day for finishing up some housework and projects!!  I've mailed my Primitive Quilts & Projects "Marriage" sampler to the girls... now it's time to finish up the instructions and send them also.  I wish I had a little "fairy" that loved to write my patterns...that's the part that I dread!  Love the designing and construction though... it's the best!

My hubby is leaving today for a week trip with some friends to the Orlando area.  Since I'm leaving for market next week... he's taking a little time away from the home front also.  Strolling through the parks, reading, relaxing...what could be better?  I KNOW!!!  Walking through the isles at Houston Quilt Market!

I can't wait.. it's been such a long time since I've been to one of the will feel so good!

I'm also finishing up a few other projects here at home so I can get started on my next design!  It's a stitchery set as a center square in a quilt.  The stitchery is of an antique bird print that I purchased years ago as an inspiration for a fabric design.  Here is the print.....

I teach a class showing how to take this print and convert it into a line drawing.  Then you transfer the line drawing to fabric and stitch it... like red work... only I used black thread on this project.  I'll keep you posted on the progress of the quilt! 

Well.... I just got a breakfast date!!!  My hubby and I are going out for breakfast this morning.  I love breakfast out...don't you????  They always seem to get the bacon crispier than here at home...and I LOVE crisp bacon.... ahhhh... along with the smell of fresh coffee!  Life is good!

Time to hit the shower and get all dolled up!!

See you later chickies!!
