There's no place like home!

What a crazy weekend!!

I attended a Harriet Hargrave Machine Quilting class/retreat. I learned so much that I'm a bit overwhelmed!!

But I definately know more about machine quilting than I did before I get there (ALOT more).

I was increadible to hear from the ultimate heirloom machine quilting pro the basics as well as tips to make my quilts from beginning to end--at least the small ones that I have to start with.(I'm not THAT ambitious!!!)

As exciting as this weekend was--what's even more exciting is that, thanks to Margaret (the quilter I send my babies to) my Wild Things from Oz is going into the mail tomorrow!!!



Omg, it is so beautiful!!!!! I can't wait to bind it and see the final product! (the binding is a red from the same fabric line).

Even more exciting than my Fab quilt?!

I know it's hard to believe that there is anything more exciting than a brand spanking new quilt at my doorstep

but there is!

*drumroll please*

HTB Is flying in tomorrow!!!!

Yeah, I'm pretty excited about that.

OMG! I can't believe I missed all this excitement. the ugly fabric, the hun=mungus star quilt...the cute little applique (UMMM...did you forget to post what it looked like after the class? I'm just sayin'!), the completed quilt???
Well, it's all just too much. ARGH...I need to go rest now, I feel overworked, LOL!

aw shucks...I was hoping when I saw the picture that it had made it home to you safely. Like a mother, I always worry!
