Time Out!

I should have seen it coming when I read this quote this morning...
"The illusion is to believe that COMMUNICATION has just taken place" George Bernard Shaw. Okay maybe not a direct quote but you get the idea.
But I've got one of my own for you...
"Negative people make me want to wash out my ears"!
I'm just sayin'
So after some prayers and a couple Aleve I thought some breathing techniques would help. And what is better than just breathing in air? Breathing in fabric! Let's go take 5 at the LQS!!!


These books are going on my want list I think I have all the Kim D. books. I haven't made any of the patterns but I love them!
There are some really cute things to make in this book. They have a couple samples in the shop... let's go take a look.






Look at these sweet little jelly rolls. Snippets is going on the want list too!


I already have the Sizzlin' Sixties book... and there's my American Jane quilt(the things you can do with a 60 degree ruler!)


Hummm, I like this quilt made from the Fig & Plum group. Easie peasie pattern that is a free one on the United Notions web site... theirs done in the Sultry group by Urban Chicks. I think this pattern might be fun to do at my retreat.



Here is another one of mine. I should have quilted this one!


Okay, I feel better now. Hope you do to:)

I think your quote is right on. How about a sweet scented lavender soap for the ear wash job. And the best every thing to come up with is your time out at the LQS. Way to go! I have the Mill Creek book and the little hanging with the apple seed quote is going on my UFO list. Thanks for sharing such positive pictures.

Is there some place I can find out about your retreat? Thanks.

I've ordered the first two books...I can't resist a Kim Diehl book, either! And I think I'm going to have to add a 60 degree ruler to my wish list!

The new Kim Diehl arrived in my mailbox last week! I'm like you--I think I have all of them, but I don't think I've made any. But you know what? That's just fine with me! I see them more as eye candy and a source of inspiration--she does exactly what I like to do most: simple piecing + simple applique = a stunning quilt! Thanks for the virtual tour!
