Americana in the Park Wall Hanging and Place Mats from Crayon Box Quilt Studio

 

Four months!  It's hard to believe that it's been that long since I've posted here.  It certainly wasn't intentional and definitely won't be the norm in the future.

As for why? It's a lot of reasons. I couldn't work on posts while we were on vacation at the end of August because my Ipad is old and Blogger no longer works with the older operating systems.

Then, on the urging of a couple of friends, I applied for and got a job (while on vacation) as a part-time study hall monitor at one ...

Hi, all!

Well, it's Friday again, and we all know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  I know the holidays are coming up in a hurry and you may be doing a lot of secret sewing - but I hope you can still find something to share that you feel is whoop-worthy!  Let's get started!

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

A few weeks ago, my husband asked me if I had time to complete a special project for him before Christmas - and of course I said yes!  You might remember seeing these on my design wall ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? There's No Place Like Home.... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict


 Hi, all!

It's Friday again, and we all know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!!!  I've had a non-sewing week, but I've still got plenty to share, and I hope you do too - so let's get started!

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

As you may remember from last week's posts, my husband and I took our oldest granddaughter Lilli to New York City for a few days this week in early celebration of her 14th birthday!  We've been planning this for months, and Lilli had quite an agenda sketched out for ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? The End Is In Sight..... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Friday has rolled around once again, and it's a special one!  For me, it's the beginning of the holiday season - today is my birthday!  Next up for us is my grandson's birthday, then my husband's, then Thanksgiving, then Lilli's birthday, then Christmas!  Everything moves quickly from here.  So now you know one of the things I'm whooping about - and now it's time for all of us to share our whoop-worthy moments!  Let's get started!

I really put the pedal to the metal this week, and busted out the last of ...

Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? Another WIP Finished! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

It's Friday, y'all!  It sure seems like the weeks are just flying by, doesn't it?  I'm sure many of you are working on Christmas presents already, but I hope you'll have something to share that you are whooping about this week - so let's get started!

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

Earlier this year I decided I was going to cut into my precious hoard of Kate Spain fabrics and make a king size summer weight quilt for my own bed.  For those of you who have asked, a summer weight quilt is a little lighter/cooler than ...

Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? More Progress on my WIPs! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

It's almost impossible to believe, but it's already the middle of October!  How did that happen?  This month is flying by - but today is Friday, and that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on once again.  Are you ready?  Me too!  Let's get started...

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

As you probably already know, I've been participating in Leanne's WIPs-B-Gone 2021 Challenge, and it's been great!  I've worked through so many projects since 9/23.  Some you've seen already, but here's what happened this week...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Let The Fun Begin! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Fall, Friday, and fun!  What could be better?  I do love this season - the cooler weather, shorter days, and the colors of fall.  Plus the holidays just around the corner - can you believe that there are only eleven more Fridays until Christmas? (Sorry for those of you who like to live in denial...)  But Friday also means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on - are you ready?  Let's go!

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

It's been a busy and productive week in my studio!  First of all, I finished this pretty table runner...


Tons and tons of ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? WIP Progress! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Welcome to the first Friday in October!  Have the leaves started changing color where you are?  I love this time of year, probably because I grew up in Miami, FL where the leaves NEVER change, and I'm enjoying watching the tree outside my sewing room window.  Every day there's a little more color showing!  While that's whoop-worthy, I bet I can come up with some sewing whoop-whoops, too, and I imagine you've got some too.  So let's get started!

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

It's been a busy week at my place!  I've been having so ...

 Hi, all!

Well, it's official - it's now less than 100 days until the end of 2021!  After today, there are only fourteen more Fridays left in the year.  Hard to believe, isn't it?  This year seems to have flown by - but there's still time to get our whoop whoop on!  So let's get started...

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

You may have read earlier that I am participating in the WIPs-B-Gone 2021 100 day challenge hosted by Leanne (@devotedquilter) on Instagram.  Well, here's my pile of WIPs that I'm hoping to bust through by New Year's Eve ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Finish, and Progress! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

I know it's hard to believe, but it's September!  This year is just whipping along, isn't it?  Now's the time, though, when we'll all start having some finishes - some we can share, some we can't - but we can all cheer each other on as we work!  So gather up your whoop-whoop-worthy stuff and let's get started!

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

Well, it's been a couple of busy weeks around here, and I've finally got my sew-jo back, which means that things are moving right along on the quilting front.  First of all, here ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Let's Hear It For Emily's New Book! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Can you believe it's the last Friday in August already?  This year is just flying by - but Friday means that it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on, so I hope you're ready!  Let's go!

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

As you all know, I may have a slight scrap problem.  After all, fabric is expensive, so we don't really want to throw even the leftovers away!  But mine are starting take over the studio...

...and I really need to find a way to use them - because they aren't doing anyone any good just stacked ...

Hi, all!

Have you had a great week?  I hope so - because it's Friday, and that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  If you're anything like me, finishes are few and far between lately, but I've got some progress I'm whooping about - maybe you do too?  Let's get started!

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

Well, as I said, I've not had much success with finishes this week - my sew-jo is still MIA - but I did move some things along a bit!


There's a lot going on in this picture - I loaded a ...

Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? A Fun And Fruitful Day.... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Friday has rolled around once more, and we all know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!!  I hope you're ready - just remember, it doesn't necessarily mean a finish, just something that you're doing a little happy dance about.  And I hope everyone has had something to whoop about this week!  So let's get started...

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

Thursday was a good day in my studio!  A friend of mine who recently got a long arm machine came over and I gave her some tips for quilting, since she hasn ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Or Maybe Just My Sew-Jo.... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict


 Hi, all!

Wow, it's Friday already!  This week flew by, and I don't have a lot to show for it.  So I'm counting on you all to share your whoop-worthy moments (maybe it will make my sew-jo feel guilty and show back up!) So are you ready?  Let's get started!

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

As I said, my sew-jo just got up and moved out on me this week.  I couldn't get motivated to sew, but I did put the binding on a bunch of quilts for the quilt ministry....

...so I did battle through some of it.  The ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Different Kind of Week... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Wow - is it Friday already?  This week has literally flown by, along with the rest of July.  Can you believe that next week it's August, and in most of the country, kids will be heading back to school within a few days or weeks?  I spent some extra time with the kids this week after my daughter reminded me that they start school next week (fingers crossed!) I'm kind of curious how my youngest granddaughter will do back in the classroom full time - she honestly never stops talking!  

But enough chatter (I wonder where Emmy gets ...

Here it is, Friday again, and we all know what that means!  It's time for us to get our whoop whoop on - are you ready?  I know I am!  So let's get started...

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

You may recall that I've been working on re-arranging my studio layout a bit, trying to make it more functional now that I've had a chance to see what works and what doesn't.  Lilli came over and helped me the other day, and actually ASKED to sort through the (s)crap(s) under my long arm machine!  She's a ...

Vicious Villains Quilt for Anne from Crayon Box Quilt Studio

 Once upon a time, I saw a panel on a Facebook fabric selling group and new that instant that I had to buy it for my good friend Anne who is a huge Disney Villains fan.  Once the panel and the coordinating border and backing fabric arrive, I pieced it together and added it to the "to be quilted" pile and there it sat.  Forgotten about.  For way too long! 

One big thing the past year has brought front and center to my attention is to get my tail in high gear and get finished all these projects so that ...

Hi, all!

Welcome to Friday!!  It's been a fabulous week, but, hey, weekends are even better, aren't they? And Fridays give us a great chance to start it off with a great big whoop whoop!  Are you ready?  Let's get started!

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

Since I've been on vacation this week, I don't really have any finishes, although I've been enjoying a lot of sun...

...and tried something new to me - a poke bowl!  For those of you who don't know what a poke bowl is (pronounced poh-kay), it is marinated ahi tuna, vegetables, pineapple, and ...

Mickey Mouse Quilt for Sharon from Crayon Box Quilt Studio

 When I bought the Villains panel and fabrics for my friend Anne, I also knew that I also needed to find something for my friend Sharon.  Her favorite character is Kermit the Frog but after an exhausting search online, I came up empty.  She's also a big Disney fan and I found out that Mickey is her favorite character. Mickey panels and prints were much easier to find.

This is her finished Mickey Mouse quilt.

Once it was loaded on the frame, I knew that the quilting would bring it to life.
Picking the right panto was tough.  I ...
