MOSTLY PLAYING

My friend received her quilt and shams and was so sweet to send me a picture. I just love how it hangs down the side of the bed. Now to make me one. Why are we always the last?



Today is pattern making day....I have been so busy playing with my friend last week (we went to JoAnn's twice). She helped me tweek the one pattern I hope to have out to you this week. I know, I keep saying that but I keep playing....today...

IS WORK day!!

Okay..I said it, now you can hold me to it.

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter.

Good for you Barb. Looking forward to seeing it.

It's just beautiful. I like it so much, I want to make one similar for my daughter's bed.....in the future, when she has no more cats. I already have the fabric picked out! Looking forward to a peek of your new pattern.

Linda said...

Don't feel guilty. All work and no play make Barb a dull girl and you are far from that! I'm glad you had a chance to play. I can't wait to see what you are coming up with...

My Easter was wonderful and I hope yours was too.

That looks very nice on her bed. It's always good to have a long drop - especially if you sleep with a cover stealer! LOL Are you WORKING?

What a beautiful set...the shams are wonderful. We so seldom make shams to go with our pretty quilts, but what a great idea. See, you are inspiring even when you have a play day! LOL

Your quilt looks fabulous on the bed! I love the pillow shams. Now go and make yourself one. But I will understand if you don't. I do the same thing; always making things for others and never for myself.
