Behind The Scenes....

I've been busy ladies....

 The Guitar Man left me in kind of a mess....
so I have been spending 12 hours a day in the shoppe...
getting BOM's caught up.

Certain blocks sometimes take hours to put together...
such as these...
 You build fabric....
upon fabric...
(Notice the Color Chart...this is always done when I am in the process of designing anything.)
upon fabric....
See the labels??
My beloved customers love me for this!
It's a job....
but so much easier for me to do...
than for them to have to figure out.
Especially in one like this...
when there is 16 different fabrics.
And more pieces...
Until finally...
they are packaged up 
and ready to send out!
Then comes pattern making time...
This block had 14 full pages!

So if anything....
I see ..
Guitar Man

No wonder he went to look for work elsewhere!!

Oh...and some of  you wanted to see the pic of this month's block.
It is actually the 9th month to Buttercream Summer
which is when all of the first 8 blocks are put together with 
checkerboards and fan blade blocks.

Happy Stitching!

I was robbed on Thursday!

Oh boy....
they got my laptop,
my big TV screen that was hooked up to my work computer,
and the computer and keyboard,
the hubbies tools
and our safe.

I'm 49...
and it's never happened to me before.
Guess it was my turn. Sad face.

I really think I came upon them.
When I walked into my house,
I saw the bathroom light was on and I thought
to myself,
"Wow..I'm always getting onto Ken for leaving the
lights on ..
how could I have done that?"

Well all of my jewelry was in there...
and it was left,
as well as Ken's work computer
and my Bose.

Kind of freaky.

And poor Guitar Man....
he's out of town and is having a fit!
Both him and my son are ready to come with 
a trailer and load me up ...
back to Utah. 
It's kinda nice to have boys so protective!

I'm still determined that this is going to be a good year!

It's always exciting for me....
when someone deems my pattern worthy enough
to make for themselves!
This is the class from

I surprised them and showed up with the quilt last Saturday
so they could see what they are making.

Here are some close-ups of the blocks
their teacher is making...
Sunshine in the Shadows Block
Friends Are Like Flowers Block
Grandmother's Flower Garden Block
Strawberry-Li-Cious Block
Flowers for Sale Block on top and another one in progress...
It was the highlight of my day stopping in there.
"Can't wait to see your finished quilts ladies!

I have been up to my eyeballs in work,
seeing the Guitar Man is out of town working....
and I'm trying to do both of our jobs here!
 But I'm going to try and get some more posting done 
in the next week to show you what I've been up to!

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone!
