Where Have I Been?

     I've been here, trust me, and I've been doing all kinds of sewing.  I guess I was just not blogging, but that has a lot to do with the stupid new blogger issues I've been having.  I'm not sure it's all done with but I'm going to give it the old college try and attempt to post something today.

     I've wanted to do something with my Great Granny Squares since I saw one of my BFF Laura's last week so I pulled mine out and yesterday since I was off I made a few.

     I really love the fabrics I used and am excited to do more today.  I have 14 made and since I want to do a 5 x 6 layout, I need quite a few more!
Here are the blocks I have so far up on my design wall.

I'm going to do my layout 5 across with 6 down so the 14 blocks I have right now is a good start but I'm going to need
quite a few more....

We're having a rainy/snowy mix today here in New Jersey so it's a perfect day to sew.


I also have to admit to having a weak moment last week and did some quilting retail therapy for myself...I was feeling sorry for myself because I am down to just 1 BOM and I'm missing packages in the mailbox so I ordered a few things to add to future projects........




I added some "cute" fabrics for either pillowcases or bindings/backings or even just some charity tops.  I mean, a girl needs some cute mushrooms, city streets, fun christmas trees and wooly sheep doesn't she?
And...look at that purple/pink/yellow stripe...perfect don't you think for binding?

Hope you all have a great holiday weekend if you're celebrating  the President's....

Happy Stitching,

Peggy
