National Quilting Day

Well hello there Blogland Neighborhood .... has it been 2 weeks since our last blabfest? YIKES! Well....

we've been feeling a little glum and not much in the mood for blogging over the past week or so (kind of puts all things in perspective when you watch the news about Japan etc.) And, as usual this weekend the MBIAJ Paperwork Dept has ....

...their usual BORING, TEDIOUS pile of paperwork to get caught up on before Monday rolls around again (oh yes, and that's our latest coping strategy ..Pillsbury chocolate fudge Sweet Moments) .... and today being National Quilting Day the MBIAJ Sewing and Quilting Dept was moping around because they (again) don't have time to play with fabric this weekend .... that is until the mailman brought .....

..... a little fabric and thread gifty gift from blogger pal Linda Lum DeBono (we were the randomly picked winner from her Yo Yo Challenge she hosted a couple of weeks ago). THANKS LINDA !!! This was the perfect pick me up for the MBIAJ Sewing and Quilting Dept (especially since it's National Quilting Day !)

....and speaking of cuter than cute things .... look at this fun pattern we sent for from The Quilted Fish !!! Party crowns and party hats !!! PERFECT for many happy milestone birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, and a wedding we have coming up in the next few months !!! (and all of these upcoming events deserve some snazzy headgear to properly commemorate the occasion !)

... and one more important thing .... in the spirit of National Quilting Day here is a way for all of you generous and caring quilters to help the people of Japan in the best way you know how .... and that is to make a comfort quilt. This is being organized by Quilters Newsletter (just click on this link for all of the info). OK gang, lets fire up those sewing machines !!!

Be back soon!

Oh darn I missed National Quilting Day this year. I was holed up in a motel room with the curtains drawn..administering drops to Mr. O's eyes after laser surgery.
