FEELIN GROOVY

Thank you for all of the get well wishes, I don't know what it was but I think it's gone now, I've gone to work for two days now and I'm feeling preeeeety good! Since you asked, here are pumpkin pictures, inside and out! one is needle turned (I got 11 of those done) and the 31 others are machine appliqued using my new skills. Notice anything wrong? oops, I guess I didn't listen to the teacher. I forgot to reverse my pattern when I did the steam a seam technique. I don't think it will matter too much, I hope not. It's been fun seeing all of the pumpkins out in blogland. You can check out Erin's or Yvonne's, and Teresa's. I think there are 42 of us and if you've posted pictures on your blogs that I have missed, please let me know. It's going to be one adorable pumpkin quilt. I did get a chance to "chat" with another pumpkin swapper Gloria. What an interesting new friend. Anne Sutton designed the Strawberry Hill pattern for her and mentioned her on the back of it. (oh and Fatquartershop has this pattern on sale! and they also have some NEW Bunny Hill Designs!) I hope you will visit Gloria and ask her to show us her pumpkins too! Some of you were asking about the pincushions. I can't share them until after the retreat, but have an idea. Alex Anderson posted a blog about Duck Butts, it was funny. I told her I was gonna blog about pincushion butts. We thought that was funny too. But then I thought about it some more and thought it was dumb. But oh well here goes....what's wrong with dumb? TADA!!! PINCUSHION BUTTS in all their glory, this basket shows half of them done. At the moment I have got a total of 60 done and 20 to go. I think I'll make it! OK, are you still with me... all together now.... Slow down, you move too fast. You got to make the morning last. Just kicking down the cobble stones. Looking for fun and feelin' groovy. Ba da, Ba da, Ba da, Ba da...Feelin' Groovy. Hello lamp-post,What cha knowin'? I've come to watch your flowers growin'. Ain't cha got no rhymes for me? Doot-in' doo-doo, Feelin' groovy. I've got no deeds to do, No promises to keep. I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep. Let the morning time drop all its petals on me. Life, I love you, All is groovy... xoxomar

Yeah! Your feeling better. Thanks for the mention in your post. I love applique and love the pin cushions, but that is one beautiful cherry quilt in the picture! Would love to see the whole quilt! I'm still working on my pumpkins and do the starch method. Takes a little longer! :>) Anyway, hope all is well and keep up the good work!

Feelin Groovy!!! Love the pincushion butts. You've been busy.

Kim said...

Since I can't come to the retreat, can you just go ahead and send me that quilt that's behind the pincushion basket? ROFLOL! Sounds like you're feeling perky now. Or smoking something illegal! Is that Simon and Garfunkle I hear? Blast from the past!
