Eenie Meenie BumbleBeenie

I love getting envelopes in the mail from NY, NY!

That is where the lovely V (of Bumblebeans blog) lives. She's assembled another group of quilters to do a quilt for charity and the fabrics arrived today. YAY!!! Now, just to put the old thinking cap on and see what I can come up with.

Also in the package was a little itsy-bitsy quilt she says is a mat for my tea cup or coffee mug. Oh man, I'm not sitting any hot liquids on it ~~ I think it's going on the wall in my sewing room. I love it. Thanks V, my heart is glad.

I love it especially because it has one of her favorite fabrics (see the turquoise flower?). I've seen it in many of her quilts and she must be running out of it, which makes it so precious to me. It reminds me of Mexico.

I'm supposed to be photographing and listing stuff to sell on Craigslist in prep for my move next month.
I'm supposed to be working on my cousin's pillow covers.
I'm supposed to be making a gazillion decisions on what to take or what to sell.

But guess what I'll be doing? LOL



have some tea and think of me! just was having some scrappy fun! you've been a doll, and have helped on each of my donation quilts, above and beyond the call of duty!
good luck with all your stuff, where is the move too?

Love the mini quilt! I really like the quilted part how it shows up on the back!

Can't wait to browse your blog some more.

:0) Good Luck on the move

Hi V. Thanks so much for visiting my blog. :0) I knew that the block was made by your sweet friend. I didn't think to comment on that part. Sorry. :0) She did a good job. It was nice of you to blog about her and show off her pretty work.

I was looking over your blog and enjoyed reading. I just love blogs!! I am still new to the quilting world and am really enjoying it. I am hopefully very shortly going to finish my first quilt. I can't wait!! It's a turning 20, but for me I changed it to a turning 14 (I think that is how many fat quarters I used). :0)

I'll have to post some pictures when I get it completed. I am so proud of this one considering I've never done an entire quilt before. Our DD has just turned 2 so I'm sure she won't be as excited to get it as I am for her to have it. :0)

Ok, I'll quit babbling now.

Love the Mini quilt and the fabric scraps will make a great donation quilt. I am so sorry, but I can not remember the line of fabrics I used on my Waverunner quilt. I will go and look if there is a piece of some of the scraps left with the designer's name on.
