WONDERFUL THINGS ARE HAPPENING OVER HERE AT THE BEJEWELED HOUSEHOLD!

My husband and I have seen and will see more family in one month than we have seen in years, family in and out of our home. This is a fun time for us but in the same breath I long for the simple days in Amerika Samoa. My son had Hawaiian music playing in the car yesterday, talk about making one lonely for the islands.....

Oh well...back to the wonderful things. I am going to Seattle, Washington (will see my oldest sister....haven't seen her in around 10 year...she is the owner of inchworm fabrics), my son will be home while we are way so I don't mind telling you this...


so............ I did some prep work for these following stitcheries for the trip

First let me give you the link to these awesome freebies, it is at Homeberries

As you can see, I can't find my green papermate flair pen...using a mechanical pencil. There must be a black hole in my room where things hide.


These are just a few of the patterns....I love them all. As you can see, I couldn't wait to set my hands to task......love love love them!!

Next, today I am going to be cutting on these beauties. You ask what am I making?

HUMMMMMMMMMM

You will just have to come back and see. I will cut them out today and hopefully, put these together to make your eyes dance with delight on the finished product!

I figure that since I am working on getting my quilt tops finished.....I deserve a new project....you heard me....DESERVE!!!!!

Of course you deserve a new project. Those UFOs need friends. Mine cry out for more friends all the time. Some get to know each other longer than others.

I am sure it will be a wonderful trip out to see your sister. Another plus - the temps there have been in the 70s. What a treat that will be after this hot spell here on the east coast!
