It Helped!



Thanks for everyone's tips on the dreaded taxes and spring cleaning. It helped me. I finished my part of the taxes today!!!! Everything goes to the CPA, but all my little ducks are in a row. What a relief. As for the cleaning, well, we can't be good at everything, can we.

The 3 winners of a copy of American Summer by Polly Minick and a prop are:

Jackie B

Ladies, email me here and I'll get your goodies out to you.
Bathing Beauties Rug by Polly Minick - American Summer


Besides patting myself on the back because of the taxes, I did a little cooking today. Roast chicken, and this - MY NEW FAVORITE SALAD

This yumminess is Orange and Avocado salad. What a treat. We'll be eating this a lot this week as avocado's and naval oranges are at their peak right now.

We'll have pictures of some works in progress this week as well as news of a new Blog Hop!

Hi Laurie, The "Summer Roses" quilt is stunning can you tell me the fabric line the rose sashing is from? I want to be ready when the book comes out so I can start on it. Thanks, Debbie

The background fabric for Summer Roses were 2 neutrals I had. The floral was a Japanese neutral. The other one was from a 3 Sisters collection. Both are older and probably hard to find. The good news is that the new line we will show at Quilt Market - has lots and lots of neutrals!!!!

Kudos for getting your ducks in a row! I too love the Summer Roses quilt. Thanks for identifying the fabric. I can't wait to see the new collection.

As long as it is clean enough to be healthy, I say good enough!
