Festive for Friday...SPRING!

 Happy Friday, friends and family! I acknowledge it's been almost a month since my last post. And although I wish I could say that I've been spending all of that time sewing, that's not quite true. However, I did go to a craft fair with the company the Momcat and I have started, Prairie Sewn Companion, and sold a couple of things. However, my goal for the weekend is to get our Etsy site up and running!

That, of course, will be a challenge given the following schedule for St. Patrick's Day weekend (and where I live it is a BIG holiday!). Keep in mind that I also am desperate to do laundry, make an egg casserole for tomorrow and somehow reclaim my family room from all of the fabric bowls/vases and table runners that are sprawled about. Le sigh. I am fully convinced I can do all of this in the teeny tiny window between work and going to dinner.


  • Dinner out


  • Four mile run
  • Potluck Brunch
  • St. Patty's Day Parade
  • Sitting in the sunshine at our favorite summer restaurant on the patio by the river
  • --Note this will likely be ALL afternoon


  • Three mile run
  • Brunch at the local Irish Pub
  • Massage! 
My other goal for the weekend is to get back into THIS glorious space! The Momcat helped me majorly reorganize my studio when she was here this winter, and I need to get back in there and get some things done! I also have a certain Challenge Quilt project to do before we go back to Paducah next month!I have lots of pictures of the new space, so look for a post tomorrow with a little tour it!

I tend to quilt less when the weather is sooo nice. But this year I'm excited to take my work outside with me to do English Paper Piecing projects. I must remember that  no matter what, the weather, the length of time between my blog posts or even the towering pile of english paper pieced projects threatening to tip over onto my cat carrier, that I'm always:
