I Just Can't Talk to You Right Now . . .

Thursday night, 10:45 p.m. I've been off work for 45 minutes now, and during that time, I drove home, wolfed down a couple pieces of room temperature pizza, and exchanged the essential end-of-the-day information with Hubby. My brain is mush--I gave it my all and left whatever remained at the office.

Work on a "normal" day is crazy and tends to demand a bit of overtime, but the evening before a vacation day heightens everything to the level of insane--and that's what it was today. I'm taking Friday off to attend a nephew's wedding and there was just too much that needed to be done before Monday and no matter how many hours I have to stay late on a weeknight, I'll do it to avoid giving up any of my weekend time.

So, anyway, sorry for the rant--it's just my way of saying I have nearly nothing for you tonight, although I WILL let you in on this bit of information: Shabby Fabric's Country Cottages block six was posted today. Isn't it darling?


You can get your own copy of the pattern HERE. I just love Shabby Fabrics, don't you? Not only are they an excellent online fabric shop, but they have great designs. Speaking of which, this block of the month program, a Shabby Fabrics exclusive pattern, starts in July:


I signed up for this one a couple months ago and I can hardly wait! At least I know with all this overtime I seem to be working, I won't have to worry about paying the bill!

I love house quilts. I'm a big old copycat, just signed up for this cute BOM. Maybe we can encourage each other to get our blocks done.

Oh, so now you're going to be working on the BOM from Shabby Fabrics and the Pumpkins, boy are you going to be busy! Sounds like me, at one time I had five going all at the same time, but now I'm down to one!

I love that quilt pattern! Enjoy your wedding, well not yours, but the wedding!! Know all about mayhem at the office- I had one of those days today and 5 mins ago (11.05 pm) suddenly remembered something important I forgot so its in early tomorrow for me...and my job happens to depend on my goodwill to get everything done- NO overtime for me! Ah well, its a job and I like it! So i'm not complaining!
