I'm not mellow! I'm having fun and staying busy


Here's a preview of a "secret" quilt I'm working on- for McCall's :-)
The fabric line is called mellow yellow by Red Rooster here
they are just YUMMY- not mellow...

Now look what my AWESOME husband made me!!
(Hey, I have to kiss up a little, after all, I'm getting a fancy embroidery machine this week!!)
I showed him Connie's blog from the blog hop and her giveaway was a ruler holder.
Then about an hour later he came upstairs with THIS!! what a guy!!


This is the Bible BOW- Woman of Endor
I really didn't read much about her other than she might have been a fortune teller, the block is called wheel of fortune, well I don't like stuff like that, so I picked my LEAST favorite fabrics from my bundle, I don't like purple or orange, which actually go together really well.
I foundation pieced this block.
BTW I like the show Wheel of Fortune, if/when we watch it my husband keeps saying I should go on the show, as I'm fast at guessing the words, funny though as English is NOT my first language, but danish! I do remember watching it in Denmark when I was little, and I remember ONE time the finalist had to guess the word and had NO letters showing, my dad saw it and guessed the correct word!! in DK too, the show is a little different, they don't get those starting letters like they do here, or maybe that's a new thing? also when I was little, the money they earned, they had to "shop" for items in a showcase display, it could be a kitchen display or living room display, wonder if that was a tax law thing?hmm
Now I'm curious, going to ask my friends if that has changed now.


I also got a shipment of fabrics and AHHHH's
uhhh fun!! can't wait to start some more

Very not mellow fabrics. Can't wait to see the newest creation. The ruler holder is great. I may have to beg him to make me one once I get my long arm. Love the sayings you find.

I love those fabrics just as much as I love blues and yellows together. I'm looking forward to your project. It's going to be awesome, I just know. Your rulers look interesting. I just have boring rectangles and squares. And your funnies are just my favorite kind. I have one where the lady is sitting begging and the other ladies say, "don't give her any money, she'll only spend it on fabric." I know you have seen that one. I love them.
