End In Sight ... I'm A Winner ... Life is Good

There is an end in sight....sigh....The kitchen floor is done and the furniture returned to the kitchen from the living room...the carpet in the living room is ripped up...we are donating our couch to a local church so that is being done this evening and then we need to move the remaining living room furniture in to our kitchen because our carpet is being installed tomorrow morning at 9 am .... WOO HOO! I called on our furniture that was ordered and they are expecting it this week, so maybe, just maybe i'll get lucky and the furniture can be delivered later this week and our house will be back to normal ... well as normal as it gets around here! I am so excited and so ready to have things in their place! Take a look at the picture below ... you can see where my poor sewing machine sat for 2 weeks :O(
So while my kitchen table was in my living room, i spent a few evenings cutting out fabric for my May Schnibble. This weekend I put all the blocks together and sewed them in rows. Below is a picture of the blocks just layed out on the floor. This is McGuffey and I did it in scraps from Kansas Troubles.
OH OH! And i was a winner in last months schnibble drawing...i won a $25 gift certificate to Quilters Paradise. I just called them this morning and ordered the Schnibbles Times Two book...I can't wait to get it because I'm thinking of making McGuffey in a large quilt for our living room to go with the new furniture. I have a bunch of fabric from In The Pink II and think the pinks and browns would be perfect!

Have a great week everyone and hopefully next time I post there will new furniture in it....Life is Good!

Pssst...I'm still Alive ;O)

HELLO! Gosh, it feels like forever since i've posted and even longer since i've been able to actually spend any time sewing! I've been keeping up with my pinwheel quilt-along which has been rather easy because it's only one block a week...i've been skipping a week and doing 2 at once...but i'm loving how it is turning out...only one more block to go and that should be posted on Twiddletails either tonight or tomorrow....i can't wait!

I've been using Butterfly Garden by Kansas Troubles ... I absolutely LOVE Kansas Troubles!!! I have more Butterfly Garden for another quilt i'm going to make, but who knows when that will happen as my house is still in shambles and i don't see any end in sight! Below is a picture of my Pinwheel quilt and you can see the new kitchen floor in the sorta blends with the quilt, but that's ok...i love them both anyways. Hope everyone is have a wonderful Spring...take care!
