Mendocino Quilt, originally uploaded by jenib320.
Haven't had any time for sewing this week, but tonight I had time to pull fabrics for my Mendocino mermaid quilt! The basic design is going to be log cabins using the mermaid prints as centers. Each mermaid will be surrounded with prints in the same colors. I'm really excited about it!

George bunny has been keeping me sane!

Apologies for the unintended lack of blogging. We're now into the last couple weeks of the semester and it's totally out of control! I finish exams the 9th of December, so until then things will probably remain pretty slow! :)

Today I love the..
Smell of: Orange ginger body spray
Sound of: Harry Potter 6
Taste of: Bavarian style soft pretzels from Cornerstone
Sight of: George bunny!
Feel of: New cardigan

Good Things about Today:
- Finished up the last of this weeks papers.
- Yummy fabric mail.
- Mike found a $20 bill on the ground today so we had an impromptu (and free!) date! :)


  1. You got your Avrika! I think I remember you talking about wanting that forever ago. It's such a great print!

    Can't wait to see your new quilt. It sounds fabulous!

  2. Ohmygosh - i love that first picture - I really cannot wait to see your Mendocino quilt. Maybe it will give me an idea of what to do with my hoarded Mendocino stash!

  3. those fabrics are amazing...all of the piles!!! Orange ginger body spray, i am intrigued!! Where is that from?

  4. Good for you on going out. Found money is perfect for such things.

    Um, your mermaid quilt is going to be incredible and will certainly drive me crazy with envy. I can't wait!

  5. Wow, that Mendocino quilt is going to be amazing!

  6. What an absolutely fabulous fabric stack! It really inspires me to vary my stash a bit more and not buy so much in complete lines. It also gives me a good idea for my planned HR scraps I just have to finish collecting all the scraps!

    Also, wasn't Harry Potter great?! We went last night, too. It went by so fast that now I can't wait for the last one. I may have to get the audio books like you. But it was a complete range of emotion, from laughing to crying to scarily jumping out of my seat!
