Hurrah for Productive Weekends!

I had an incredibly productive weekend and as usual I crammed a lot of activity into a mere two days. Saturday my wonderful and amazing fiance had some work to do so I took that as an opportunity to run down to my favorite little local craft store to see if I could find any fabrics to inspire me for Ruthie's baby quilt. I pretty much had decided that I was going to work with an orange and turquoise color palate so I was rather shocked when I ended up walking out with a jelly roll of Hello Betty by Moda! I just wasn't feeling the orange and turquoise selection at the store and I started browsing the pre-cuts and the Hello Betty started calling out to me. Suddenly Ruthie's baby quilt started coming together in my head. Bingo! Inspiration!


I also joined my very first swap, a charm swap, and the colorway our lovely hostess chose was Pink. Now, I might sometimes have pink hair, but I'm not really a pink person so there's not a lot of pink in my stash but I still wanted to participate because I know that pink can be cool and I have so many friends having babies that pink can probably come in real handy! But that meant I had to pick up some pink fabric for the charm swap and, I have to say that surprisingly I am pretty happy with what I found! Especially the hot pink chandelier fabric - I have been eyeing that for months and finally had an excuse to get me some! So my charms are cut and on their way to our wonderful Swap Hostess. I can't wait to see what comes back to me!


Lastly, the Hope Circle in the do. Good Stitches Bee finally filled up but no one stepped up to host the circle, so I did. I am so excited to get started on this project so I couldn't let our little circle go host-less. I'm trying to get things in gear so we can start in September, fingers crossed!
