Excuses and Eye Candy

I have been neglecting my fledgling blog, and here's why:
1. Finished out the school year (my day job!)
2. Went to California for a month to visit family
3. Sewed quilt tops like a maniac with the sewing machine I had sent to California
4. Quilted the quilt tops I sewed like a maniac (actually, still working on this one!)
5. Started the new school year.
6. Realized it was already mid October.
7. Had to reset my blog password -- it had been so long since my last post that I couldn't remember how to sign in.
Anyway, the new school year is always like a New Year's resolution time for me, so I'll add to my list a pledge to post on my blog a little more often than once every three months!

Well, those were the excuses -- here's the eye candy.

First, some projects I can't wait to get started on:
1. Heather Bailey's Nicey Jane fabrics in pinks and yellows (I purchased these in San Diego and have been drooling over them since July) -- destined to become a tumbler quilt.

2. Joel Dewberry's Deer Valley fabrics (I have admired these for so long that I finally broke down and purchased some!

3. Anna Maria Horner's brand-new line "Innocent Crush" (not sure what these will become, but I'm happy to admire them while I ponder the possibilities).

Projects I'm in the midst of:

Tula Pink Neptune stroller blanket with floral applique

Dream On by Urban Chiks

And finally, projects I just listed in my Etsy shop:
Nicey Jane tumbler quilt in blues, greens and yellows

Lap/baby quilt in Riley Blake fabrics (Wheels and All-Star)

Hopefully, I'll be back with fewer excuses and more eye candy soon!
