Bees & Dogs.

And no – they don’t have anything to do with each other!

Got some bee blocks done recently:

For Linda and 12Squared:

12Squared - Feb.

And for John and Bee Imaginative.

And to wrap up, you’ve all met my cats before, but not my dogs.  I was able to snap a particularly good photo of them this weekend, so I thought I’d put it here to add some cuteness to your day. Happy Monday!

Purl warehouse

Jamie, Jane, Liz, Terri and I all took a little outing yesterday to the Purl Soho warehouse.  Their stores might be in NYC, but the warehouse is out here in sunny California.  We had to make a trek down to Orange County, but it was worth it!

I managed to show incredible restraint and bought only one yard of some Cake Rock Beach dots.  But in the future, when the bank account is a little bit better off, I’ll be going back.  Everything they have on their site, only in person and with no shipping cost?? Yes please!

Overwhelmed.

I’m feeling crazy busy these days.  A tad too busy, but when it’s all quilting all the time that’s keeping you that way, how can you complain??

A quick little class sample for an Improv. class that I’ll be teaching at Common Threads Studio in Pasadena.

And why am I currently so obsessed with the color combo of gray and raspberry?? I can’t get enough!

Ok back to the sewing machine I go!

Pink.

You know what’s fun about Valentine’s sewing? Being able to completely indulge in the girly pink of it all!

A mini quilt I made for last night’s LA Modern Quilt Guild meeting. We had a Valentine Swap and it was a blast!

I had fun using one of my (almost never used) decorative stitches on this…

Otherwise, my post answering the question “What does modern quilting mean to me?” is up over on the guild’s blog. Go check it out and maybe you’d like to chime in on the conversation too?
