Can I have a happy fail?

Hi all,

I know my updates never line up with the official post by Jess @ The Elven Garden (I haven't figured out how to put in links yet), where I could link up and all but time just seems to not exist in my world at the moment. Maybe I'm not worried because I have been a bit naughty lately and I don't really feel bad about it!

I bought some Tula Pink fabric that is an older range and I wanted to snap some up while I hade the chance. I had been looking for the cream print a while ago and it is hard to find so I got as much as I could, which ended up being half the bolt as another lady wanted it too so we split it in half.

I bought some fat eights of Sweetwater fabric, also an older range, "Lucy's Crab Shack". Which was an absolute bargain....and there was text fabric! What more needs to be said!

And then yesterday I found out I won a charm pack through a giveaway on Instagram. Really one charm pack is not enough to make a good size quilt so I got them to throw in another one.


To top it all off I still have not finished anything off my WIP list....I actually started another quilt instead!

I have been working on the churn dash border of the Midnight at the Oasis quilt - 52 tiny blocks gets a little boring and then other things start getting done instead. Need to give myself a push to get these done.

I am slowly getting the quilting done on the cheaters Bargello quilt.

I found out a good friend is moving away so I am frantically making a quilt for her. She loves the beach so I pulled out my Lucy's Crab Shack stash.

And turned it into a quilt.

I plan on quilting this today using my sister in laws short arm quilting machine.

Bye for now, Jess :)

Lovely projects you are working on and yes, sometimes a "woman has to do what a woman has to do" ;)!

That Tula Pink fabric really is amazing - I don't think I would have been able to resist either!

Love your quilts. Your quilting on the Bargello is fabulous! I would also link if I could work out how! I have read the books but no luck! Sorry your friend is moving away. Her quilt looks great!
