YES! I found the answer to getting some things accomplished around here! I just need to blog about it. Just knowing that all of you, my bloggy friends, are reading about it helps me to get my Patootie in gear.
After blogging about my ever growing "Lonely Quilt Tops Club", I got busy this weekend, and quilted this:
And, just like that, the "Lonely Quilt Tops Club" is back down to 7 members!
This is one of my original Cotton Charm Designs. I used an "Isn't Christmas Jolly" fat quarter bundle to make it, and it is called "Jolly Old St. Nicholas"--I love that song (Jolly Old St. Nicholas, lean your ear this way. Don't you tell a single soul, what I'm going to say. Christmas Eve is coming soon, now you Dear Old Man. Whisper what you'll bring to me, tell me if you can!"). And, I digress again--this time with singing!

Okay, so now that I found the answer to getting more things done--well, I'd like to lose about 20 pounds! I'll keep you posted on my progress!
It has been extremely busy for the past week or so! Kate and I packed a ton into spring break--shopping, decorating, nature walks, facials, doing our nails. And, the shop has been really busy!
So--I'm taking the rest of night off to do a little whip stitching on the binding of this quilt, and to watch a chick flick:
I saw this at the theater with Janelle (my BFF from middle school) and of course with Kate! I'm looking forward to seeing it again!
