She's So Cute!

I love Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilt Company, don't you?  Lately I've been ordering the PDF versions of her Schnibbles patterns, but this month I decided to order "the real thing" via snail mail--I knew I wouldn't start making the quilt right away anyway.  And when it arrived?  Here's the front of the envelope:

I think it's beyond nice of her to remember who I am, don't you?  As I've said before, I think she's the nicest designer I "know."  And here's the back--a nice big sticker commanding me to "QUILT"--just in case I ever need permission, right?

Hubby:  "Why aren't you cooking my dinner?"

Me:  "Because Carrie Nelson and Miss Rosie say I have to QUILT instead.  See?"

So that's probably not going to happen, but it COULD and now I'm ready, right?

On Saturday I got together with my stitchery friends and we went to a quilt show, had lunch out, and then we spent a couple hours shopping at cute little vintage/antique/reproduction shops--I'll have to show you my "haul" later.  In the late afternoon, I left them and drove straight to a barbecue/birthday party for an in-law/friend where I joined Hubby for a lovely evening.  In other words, it was a long, but very fun day!  When I got home Saturday night, after I did the exercise thing for awhile, I pulled out my scrappy squares and started making the sashing for the Pie in the Sky quilt.

Twenty-two made.  I really wanted to write this post last night, but by the time I had these sewn together, I was so tired I couldn't even keep my eyes open long enough to press them!  So I did that this morning and here they are.  Will you join me in some scrappy sewing today?  If you post your scrap project to your blog, please link up below so we can visit and see what you're up to.

Thanks for stopping in!

Too cute! A get-out-of-jail free card for quilters.
