yes! I am busy!

I have been busy..and here is part of my proof! In the past 2 weeks, I have finished up the thread on all of these spools. Now, granted, some of these didn't have much LEFT on them! I had gotten a spool of Masterpiece at Road to California in 2010. I think the color is called Granite...a nice light grey. I do 99% of all my piecing with that. I ran out in February..and had planned to replace it when I went again this year. BUT..I didnt' go this year. A friend offered to put our orders together and so while I waited for it to arrive I had to scramble to find thread to use! I finished up some Aurifil...some Mettler...and then even some Coats and Clark! I know i have become a bit of a thread snob..but it worked JUST FINE thank you very much! I am happy to report I have a new cone of Granite...with a backup! WHEW! I'm SO relieved!

What do you like to have extra of for those 'just in case' times in your sewing room?

Did you find the boo boos? On the top row, the 1/3 churn dash unit is upside down...and on the 3rd row of blocks, the star on the right has a 4 patch turned sideways. Did you find any more? Please tell me! lolol

This is what I have been working on this week. I have all the parts done, but have not started assembling the top. This is where I usually bog down..and in typical 'Beth' fashion, I'm hankering to start something new and am scrambling around throwing fabric around my sewing room. I have already spotted 2 units turned the wrong way. Funny how seeing it in a picture gives you a great new perspective! Can you find the boo boos? Glad to find them NOW..and not after its quilted and bound like other quilts I have done! ROTLF

If you would like to make this pattern, I found it on Mary's website. She has alot of great patterns! Maybe next time I will do the reverse..with red stars and blue churn dashes...A girl can dream!
