EYE CANDY!

Oh man. Look at this quilt tutorial from Vanessa of V & Co. SO CUTE. I must make one of those. Who’s having a baby next?

Extra time on your hands? Maybe you need some fabric eggs for Easter!

And I have at least three pairs of cargo pants that need to become these awesome little messenger bags. Reuse!

So many awesome FREE tutorials online. Why do I ever buy patterns?!

Look at these!

I’ve pre-ordered Heather’s book and the new Indigo Girls cd already…I can’t wait for their arrival!

This weekend is my quilting retreat! I thought it was Thursday for a few minutes this morning and I got so excited that my retreat was tomorrow. Then I realized it’s only Wednesday :( Crushing sadness. But then, I thought, it’s already Wednesday! Only one more day to go! How’s that for glass-half-full?

Speaking of retreat, I need to go purchase my wine contribution today!

I could write one of these posts at least 3 times a day. Here are some new (to me) bloggers I love:

Circada Daydream – new fabric designer, Michelle Benesko

Fresh Figs – fabric and pattern designer, Joanna Figueroa

The Bower at Small Meadow Press – all kinds of good stuff

black hole strikes again.

I’m not supposed to still be on the internet. But here’s what happened. I went back to Flickr to check if I had any comments (I did!) and followed a link to a commenter’s photos. This is how it starts. Then, I followed another commenter…and so it goes.

I found this blog, Crazy Mom Quilts, which is FULL of inspiration. Most inspiring – this Red Cross Quilt. I truly love this quilt. I’ve been searching and searching for the most perfect quilt for my sister, and this is it. I’ve been saving blue and aqua fabrics, and it’s going to be perfect.

I also stumbled onto Johanna Wright’s artwork on etsy. Wow. My craft room will not be complete until I have some of her prints – or even better – some of her original paintings. I LOVE her.

Now, I seriously need to get off of here. Now that I’ve saved those links for myself, I can go do something else. Like sew. Or drink coffee.

Some good stuff online today…thought I’d share. The first one is for all my nerdy friends. The second one teaches the important lesson of don’t crap where you eat. The Hilton’s are big (financial) McCain supporters – he should have known better than to mock her in his ad.
