I got off to a very slow start today. First I didn't wake up until 8 am. That is so not like me. I'm usually awake by 6:30 am. Then I had no motivation to do anything except drink coffee, read the Sunday paper and play on my laptop. A quilter on Stashbusters asked if someone could remember a blog that had a tutorial for making a quilt similar to a Turning Twenty. At 10:21 another quilter posted this link to Buttonberry. I clicked on the link and fell in love with this little quilt. I thought about making one, but then decided to poke around her blog since I had never seen it before.
Then I found the tutorial for this adorable wall hanging. BAM! My Creative Muse hit me square in the face. This wall hanging would look great on the door of my studio. I could even make it with some of the coffee fabrics I've been collecting. So what's a girl to do at this point? Get off the couch and into the studio.
It took longer to pick out the fabrics than it did to sew the wall hanging. Then I spent the afternoon stitching my studio's name on it while baking cookies and watching movies with DS and DIL. Tomorrow I'm going to have to stop at Joann's and pick up some brown perle cotton. I think I'm going to do big stitch quilting on it. I put the cream strip on the top to put my quilt shop pins on it. Now if I could only find a coffee-themed wire quilt hanger for it.
My two-year blogging anniversary is coming up on Tuesday and that's no April's Fool. In honor of my anniversary I will be having a give-away. Just leave a comment on this post between now and next Saturday, April 5 and you will be entered in the drawing.
I hope you had a great weekend. I did! Tomorrow it's back to the office and another round of rain and snow.
