I have been busy in my head lately but not getting as much done as I should in Real Life. But now I have to get moving -- a couple of days ago I learned that my daughter will be visiting from New Orleans and that she will arrive sometime in the next two or three days. My guest room has recently been re-purposed as my crafting/sewing/cutting/sorting/wrapping/fabric-storage/packing/laundry-folding room, with no room for an actual guest, so there is a lot of work to be done before my daughter arrives.
In the meantime -- and adding even more distraction to my already distracted mind -- I received in the mail yesterday the BEST prize package from Madame Samm at Sew We Quilt. I love her Blog Hops because they make me believe that I can actually create something. They are filled with inspiration. I learn so much from the Hops that it's crazy to think that I also won a prize! She provides prizes for participants AND for people who just comment, and I was lucky enough to get all this swag as a result, all wrapped up in a shiny, red package that made my mailbox pop.
Madame Samm's fabulous pattern) and thinking of more projects to add to my every-growing unfinished project pile. I did finish another little coin purse yesterday -- I used transparent thread this time to attach the frame. I know it isn't as strong as quilting thread, and it's no fun to work with, but it worked and -- with many repetitions -- seems sturdy. Best of all, of course, my stitches are far less noticeable.
