12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop and Quilt-Along, Day 11! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me... a whole lotta stuff!  Do you know that if you add up all the gifts just given on that one day (the 11th), it's 66 gifts?  And all of the gifts for twelve days is 364 - over half of which are birds.  Do you still think they were true loves after all that?  (Enquiring minds want to know!)

I hope you're enjoying all the little "gifts" that have been shared over the past ten days!  And guess what - there's more!  Today we'll ...

So many great ideas this year, right? And we're still not done!  Today we'll be hearing from two more participants - Mary of Made by Marney will be bringing something special, and Selina of Selina Quilts is back for her second post of the hop, because she just had so many great ideas to share they wouldn't fit in just one post!  Kind of like going to Grandma's for Christmas, where your parents wondered how they would get all. those. presents. in the car on the way home.....

12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop and Quilt-Along, Day 6! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict


Hi, all!

Well, it's another beautiful day in the Starbucks neighborhood...



It doesn't look much like Christmas in here, but I'm definitely feeling the holiday spirit as I experience great thankfulness for having a place where I can go and be welcomed in my hour of internet need!  And that little lady behind the counter may be my new best friend - my crazy drink order (venti decaf Americano, iced, with sugar free vanilla and cream - keto friendly, of course) is very close to becoming something I can order by saying "the usual"!  So never doubt that Christmas ...

Hi, all!

Well, are you all having as much fun as I am with this year's blog hop?  I love the idea of all those posts to come nestled like presents under a Christmas tree, just waiting to be opened up.  And I don't know about you, but I see gnomes in my future....  Today we have "gifts" from Joy of Days Filled with Joy, and Jan from The Colorful Fabriholic.  Can you hear that old Carole King song "Anticipation" in the air?

Getting Ready For the Quilt-Along - Figuring Fabric Requirements! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

As I am writing this morning, I am joined by a lovely Starbucks iced drink and a view of a parking lot!  As my personal tip for you today, when you are looking at buying a house, be sure that you know how they receive internet services - even though we live just minutes from several major cities, no cable or DSL services run down our road so we are reliant on satellite internet, which is highly unreliable!  The storms last week apparently knocked our dish out of whack, so until the repairman arrives, I am limited to whoever ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Little Stained Glass... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Friday is upon us once again, and you know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  It's been quite a week around my place, but I'm definitely ready to do some whooping - so let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

As I said, it's been quite a week - we got back from vacation Sunday afternoon, and then Monday morning my husband woke up with severe stomach pain. At first he thought it was food poisoning, but the second day we headed to the doctor.  They thought it was a hot appendix ...

Hi, all!

Well, it's not quite Christmas in July yet - - - but it's drawing nearer every day!  Last week I showed you what this year's quilt-along quilt will be (this post) and I promised you a sample block tutorial.

To make this block, I'm going to keep it really simple.  Let's use four colors or ...

Make-A-List Monday - Definitely Monday! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Well, it was a Monday!  Started out with the usual stuff, like laundry and paying bills, plus a post office run and pulling a quilt for a church member to deliver; then it moved on to gutter repairmen and an unexpected quickie repair of the HVAC (why does it always wait to go out until it's 88 degrees and 100% humidity?); hauling the dogs to the groomer and back again; and two trips to the grocery store!  Whew!  I was exhausted, needed to write a blog post, and lo and behold, we were out of data - so ...

It's been kind of a different week for me - my husband was out of town three days early this week, so I decided it was time to paint the living room!  And amazingly, all went smoothly and I actually finished ahead of schedule.  Here's a picture from ...
