I'll try to be brief

Wishing my husband a very Happy Birthday today :)

I'm trying to stay in a good mood after venting about my hatred of word verification, which you can go read about.

I'm sure the chocolate cake we'll eat later will help!

I'm linking up to Freshly Pieced:

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

I was mad busy finishing my anniversary quilt last week and didn't link up at all. My Weigh in Wednesday post is over at Missy Mac Creations this week (go check it out if you're the nosy type) so this one's mostly fabric and sewing.


 - the Johnny Cash quilt for my husband


- another Rose Star block

-  Follow the Pezzy Brick Road quilt

no progress

 - Stained QAL - must get to cutting!! keep meaning to and then get distracted. urgh!

completed: 1
new projects: 1
in progress: 3

Next up I got some scrummy fabric goodness sent to me recently - the first is the utterly gorgeous charms from the rainbow charm swap organised by the wonderful Emily at Strawberry Patch:

I'm using Emily's picture because she's better than me!

And then the beautiful fat quarter bundle from The Intrepid Thread that I won from the lovely Adrianne at Little Bluebell who put this bundle together:

It's even prettier in real life so thank you Adrianne!

Finally I was chuffed to receive the Liebster blog award this week from two people! The lovely M-R at Quilt Matters and Michele at Quilts From My Crayon Box, thank you ladies!

This award is given to favorite blogs with under 200 followers. The Liebster Rules are:
1. Post about your win on your blog.
2. Link back to the blogger who presented you with the award.
3. Copy and paste the award to your blog.
4. Present the Liebster Award to 5 blogs that have less than 200 followers that you think deserve to be recognized.
5. Let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.

I'm going to award this to blogs I love, it's not law that they need to participate in the award but you might want to go check them out because they're good!! I really admire and enjoy these blogs, they always give me inspiration and make me smile:

Rebecca at Making Rebecca Lynne
Becky at The Barefoot Seamstress
Heather at Crafting...
Janine at Rainbow Hare Quilts
Steph at Hope Sewing is Genetic

It was tough choosing, there's so many great blogs out there! Better get back to catching up on reading them!

Oh and I did think about including selfsewn in this award, since she has a new blog but it seemed like cheating since she had 400 odd before ;) You should check it out, she organised the Rose Star Block Party and the tutorial can be found there!
