my mug rug I made from the HSTs cut when I joined various strips of rainbow-coloured fabric for the binding for Whirling Stars.
You'd think one mug rug this month would get it out of my system, but nope, I made another, Quilt Kisses.
Like I said, I have been, and I expect I always will be, bit hard by the distractions bug.
Thank you to 18, EIGHTEEN👏👏🙏 people who linked up their DrEAMi! episodes in January. I enjoyed each post, and totally get why you were bitten. Someone said I need to put a disclaimer on these linky parties so... voilà:
"Please be advised that visiting any links provided in this linky party may result in you discovering a project you just have to make. You do not hold me, Sandra Walker, of Musings of a Menopausal Melon-mmm! quilts, responsible for any missed deadlines, meals, or other commitments that may go by the wayside should you find yourself mesmerized by one of these quilty squirrels."
'k? We good? (as my daughters would say, or probably my grandson, Brady would! He comes out with the best lines.)
It was HARD to choose just 3 shiny baubles from those 18, but I did. These bloggers' phrases ring so true for us bit-by-a-squirrel peeps.
|This showstopper was made by my darling |
|Allison's hearts got their hooks into her, and, like rabbits, kept multiplying on her design wall! I made a heart much like this after seeing some stripey or strippy, both work, hearts online. Seeing Allison's makes me want to make more...|
|Cindy is a part of the #30quiltdesignschallenge2017 I, with Lisa of Sunlight in Winter Quilts, are hosting on Instagram (it runs until March 15, so feel free to hop in; the water's very warm!). One of Cindy's designs, her second, in fact, led to this statement, "I sewed like a madwoman!" Love the soft fabrics and the way she quilted it.|
|Preeti's birds (she got bird flu, or bird flew) have multiplied like 30 times these 2 and then some! As she said, "Oh no, I did not stop there..." Aren't they just strutting across her design wall all sharply-dressed with a 'look at ME!' attitude?|
In other distractions news, I hope you've been enjoying the photos everyone at QuiltCon has been posting. Some lovely quilts, and loads of lovely peeps, many meeting up for the first time after becoming online friends through this lovely QBL of which we are all part.
So what got your sudden attention this past month? You can link up any post Instagram or Flickr photo from February. Please note this is a text-only linky from now on.
