Oh, it feels good to be back!

I think that creative slump might be over. What do you think? I have totally taken over the dining room table. Who needs to eat? Mama's gotta sew! I have all of my strips cut for Dana's Quilt a Long. That quilt folded up in the front of the pic has about 10 more inches of binding to be sewn down, but I ran out of thread. The solids are out for my first Stash Busting Bee block.
And do you remember my challenge with my friend Kristin? As all diets go, our stash diet came to an end and I went on a binge. But only a small one. I bought a few yards to even out my stash a bit. See that Farmer's Market print up front ~ the green one? It was on the remenants table. 33" for $4.99. Considering how much I love that print and the fact that I just sliced up the last of it for the quilt a long, did you think I could pass that up?!?! HA! Right. I'll be headed to this place on Sunday. Its the closest thing we have to a mill end store around here and I've never been there. We'll be in the neighborhood, so I'm gonna stop by. Then starting on Monday we're back on our stash diets until August 1. Wish me luck! I'll leave you with some eye candy. My strips for the quilt a long quilt. That purple sheet will be the backing.

I love all of your fabric choices :) and that red/black/white one I've seen before ;)

my roomie at the HGTV Circle of friends retreat used it to make her purse that she is using as her diaper bag - take a look...

love your strips for the quilt along. You sound a bit like me - lots of ideas and too little time.
