Sneak Peak

Wahoo! It's a Mud Day! Yes, in the country, in addition to Snow Days, we also have Mud Days - when you can't get to town because of the muddy roads or high water. Robert went to town early 'cause he's on call for the ambulance, so he'll probably stay in town until the rain is over. For me, it means NOT HAVING to go to town, all alone cozy in the cabin, baking cookies during breaks and watching the ducks on the pond thoroughly enjoy the weather. It doesn't mean I get a day off, though, because I have my sewing machine and computer at the cabin as well as in town. Crazy as it seems, once in a while, I love it!

The Fat Quarter Shop asked for a couple pics of what I'm working on for market, so thought I'd share a peek here, too. The Summer's End fabric has been really fun to work with and I'm pleased with the results of the quilt (above). Here it is before it was sent to Lori Kukuk, quilter extraordinaire. More market peeks as we get closer.

Still time to enter for the Piecing the Past book giveaway on April 30th - is that next week already??? It was very well received in the NE panhandle last weekend where I hung out with a wonderful bunch of quilters. Thanks ladies, for a great time. Vonda Walter was a very organized, delightful hostess and had assembled an experienced, creative group of quilters to entertain Robert and I. Nicely done.

Til next time, stay dry.


  1. The fabric looks beautiful in the quilt.
    We had our share of flood days this year, our area was fine, but a lot of the towns on the rivers are still recovering.


  2. OH MY GOSH!!! Lynne, it's beautiful!!! I can't wait to see the rest of it! Enjoy your time working from home, I'm headed upstairs to do that myself! Take care, Mary

  3. This is such a pretty and unique quilt.

  4. The Summer's End fabric is beautiful! Just checked the FQ Shop to see when it will be available! Love the quilt, too... from what I can see!

  5. Ohhhh...I can't say much as I'm drooling all over my keyboard looking at the 'Summers End' quilt. It is so gorgeous I can't seem to take my eyes off of it. I've been here several times a day the last few days just to stare at it, LOL. Thanks for the peek.

  6. Beautiful quilt Lynne, lovely fabric. Love that block with the little square in the centre, hot and dry here and I'm wishing for a cozy wet day to catch up on some sewing. Enjoy the rest of your day!
