I got a feelin..

That tonights gonna be a good good night... whoooo hoooo...

So today was very productive (in the all about me kind of way). I had lunch with a super fun friend... and hit 2 quilt stores. This is what I came home with..

You see that package in the back.. with the roses on it?? That will be part of the giveaway for next Friday Night's Sew-In. All the Love U fabric is for a project I'm starting for my son's teacher (she has taught both my boys and we love her sooo much). Can't wait to show you the finished product... but that will be a month or so from now (and she's helping too).

I have been very busy doing house stuff.. I'll be telling you why very soon. But between all that, I've been trying to catch up on my Pinwheel Sampler blocks. I'm doing two quilts - one with Natures Notebook and the other with Fresh. Both from Moda. Here are some of them...

I'll be working on more of these tonight! I love sewing on Friday's for some reason.

And finally, a butterfly update. Let me first say that when I was explaining the process to my husband - I used the word Chrysalis and he looked at me like I had two heads. "What?? Isn't that the same as a Cocoon?" He knows I'm a simple girl.. and calling it a Chrysalis wasn't quite me. lol

So.. here are the Cocoons!

We transfered them to the 'garden'

And now we have to wait approx 1 week for butterflies to emerge. Hopefully we will be lucky enough to witness one or more of them break free. So exciting.

So - I'm off to listen for the doorbell - dinner should be here any minute. lol - then I'll be sewing my little heart out.

Happy Friday!!!

Love your blocks! Fridays are great for sewing... as soon as I get my lazy butt off the computer, that's my plan too.

Ha! We ordered in for dinner tonight too. Pizza! But my husband has to go and pick it up... speaking of lazy butts... time to go, honey. (Just as soon as the Flyers game is over.)


What nice purchases you got!!! and I am anxious to see the butterflies too--thanks for sharing them--what fun!!
have fun sewing tonight
Hugs, Di

Love the pinwheels Heidi, they look so fresh - they inspire me to get out the blues and yellows and fresh greens (and not the moda Martinique colours that I'm working with right now and which frankly are a little blah for me!). I'll be sewing Friday - if only to get the dratted quilt finished so I can move on to something new!
