Life’s Little Victories

#1  Needing a new ironing board cover and your cousin calling to say Ross has pretty Laura Ashley shabby chic covers…for less than $10.  Score!  Makes me kind of want to press some seams!


#2  Mentally debating whether or not to trim your latest bee block before you mail it--not because you are lazy, but because you want the recipient to have more to work with than less if possible.  Then, a few days later, reading on another blog you were supposed to leave it untrimmed!  I am a rule follower!


#3  Ordering a bunch of DS Quilts fabrics from Joann’s online and waiting more than 2 weeks for it to ship.  Finally receiving it and discovering almost 5 yards of extra free fabric was included!  Ok, now I don’t hate you anymore, Joann’s.  Sorry, I couldn’t get a photo of all the fabric still in the bags because, you know, I had to rip into them like immediately!


I’ve got two quilt finishes to share, but unfortunately the photographs I’d taken are not as good as I hoped, so I will be retaking them tomorrow morning and trying again.  For now I will leave you with two sneak peeks.



Have a wonderful Tuesday!
