The calm..................

Everything just seems a whole lot calmer today!  I still have a lot of sewing to do.  I'll be making handles for my tote bags today, but it's a whole lot calmer!

And let me tell you how distracting TV is!  Now I know why I don't watch it anymore.  I'm doing some research and it requires a wee bit of TV watching. Fortunately, I found the show I want on Youtube. I downloaded an episode onto the iPad and placed the iPad on my cutting mat while I was cutting this morning. Then I moved the iPad to the ironing board and then back to the cutting table, not wanting to miss a single moment!  See why I don't watch TV????   I was NOT able to get nearly as much cutting done as I normally would.  Drat ---   and I have to watch more than one episode!  Oh well - it happens to be something that I used to watch and I like it so that helps! 

Once I was finished the meager amount of cutting that I did today, this is what my cutting mat looks like.

Cutting mat looks awesome!
 Yes - the cutting mat looks awesome.  I'm almost 100% done all the cutting required. Now there's a LOT of sewing to do, but it's doable.  At least I think it's doable!!   The stack on the end - that's the WOULD BE AWESOME to get done, but not necessary.  Yep - I'm good!

I got the sleeve sewn on the last quilt last night.  This is Jeweled Tiles - the free download that I showed you earlier this week.  Here is the backing.  I had 10 squares left over (as per the cutting instructions) and so I just whacked them right in the center of the backing!  I love it and no leftovers! Those fabrics are BRIGHT!!!   They belong to Northcott's Essence collection.  Use the Product Finder in the top right-hand corner to find a shop near you that sells them.

I have a ton of e-mails to catch up on and a lot of paperwork but let's just see what we can get done!

Oh yes - and did you notice, there is a new category at the top of the blog.  CONTACT ME  - so if you're looking to get ahold of me and don't want to leave a comment on my blog or don't already have my e-mail - you can get my e-mail in that tab!  DUH - how many years have I been blogging and never did this before?   There are a lot more changes coming, but baby steps!!!

And the apple didn't fall too far from the tree at our house!   Have a look at this link - a story about flooding in Vancouver.  Check out the photo credit on some of the photos!!!!   That's crazy to have that much flooding on a regular rainy day!  Good thing, I live here and she lives there!  Good job M!!

On that note, I've got a load of stuff to do today. 

Have a great day!!!
