2010 Tea/Coffee Quilt Along Blk #1

I have joined a Flickr group on Yahoo that is doing a tea/coffee related theme quilt. You pick your own pattern and fabrics. All I have to do is post one block a month that I have made. This is my block for January!

I'm using mostly Moda's 'Oh Cherry Oh' fabric line for my teapots.
I don't care for the blue fabric that I chose on the side of the block. So I'm going to keep my eye out for something more aqua colored and replace it.
This is really going to be a quilt along for me. Because I'm just making up my pattern as I go. I just know that I hope to be making a tablecover for my kitchen table when it's done. :0}
One block done....many more to go!

Lookie what I won!!

I recently won a giveaway that Paula was having. It was for the kick-off of her new BOM "Love Is". My winning was a layer cake of FRENCH GENERAL fabrics.

These are the fabrics that she used to assemble her "Love IS" quilt.

OK I'm ready to get busy now!

Here I am playing on the computer again instead of picking up that needle and thread...but I think I finally have my stuff organized! My original blog was just getting to overcrowded with all kinds of information. Fun stuff, family, sewing, painting, gardening, giveaways and anything else I decided to chit chat about. So I decided to try and divide it up a little bit so I could find what I was lookin for a little easier. Hopefully this will help you too.
This blog is going to be where I will keep you updated on the progress in my crafts.
You may have noticed that I have an awful lot of BOMs listed on my sidebar...

I am not actually participating in ALL of them! Nope I'm not that quick or talented.
I am doing a few of them though & I'll post about them when I get a chance. I thought maybe some of you might like to check out some that I've found and either sew them up or do like I'm doing & save them for a later time. But I would love to hear comments or suggestions on anything I'm doing...really I would!

I'm off to get some rest now! Got to get them fingers nimbled up for tomorrow. Lots of catchin up to do!
