Counting the days

September 17, 2012

Four more days until we leave for our weekend in New York City...

I am excited...

and a little bit nervous. 

I had a migraine last week (the reason for my silence). I am hoping that means I won't get one while in New York. 

I did get some sewing in while I was nursing my head last week. 

I've had the chenille sheep panel for several years. I don't know why I waited so long to get it made into a pillow. 

And the quilt...

I need to get a better picture of it sometime when the weather is nice. 

I love it...No, really...I really love it...

It is made from two charm packs ( and a few other fabrics from my stash) by Benartex called Sweet Shoppe Calico Candies. I loved the top so much, I decided to use my very favorite Sherbit Pips yardage on the back that I have been hoarding. I will enjoy cuddling with this one this winter...

I have a lot to get done before we leave, so I won't be posting again until I get back. 

I wish you all a great week!!

Happy sewing!
