Happy Monday....??

I really can't believe that it is Monday already!!! The week and weekend flew by here. I was busy at work, and then busy being Rusty Crow over the weekend at the St. Jacinto Valley Quilters in Hemet, CA. It was a great show, close to home (I even got to sleep in my own bed!), and the ladies were adorable. We were well fed, and even though there was DIET PEPSI (yuck!) on Saturday with lunch, I survived (Diet Coke fiend that I am!). We were very busy at the show, and I didn't get to see many of the quilts (other than the ones on the route between the booth and the ladies room!), but everyone was talking about them in the booth. Apparently the quilt has a lot of fantastic appliquers (both starch and freezer paper and needle-turn). I so wanted to run around the show and see everything, but we just never had a chance.  I had a lazy Sunday, just hanging out at the house. I did so much relaxing that I forgot to plug in the phone, so it was completely dead most of the day on Sunday and I didn't even realize it. Oh well!

This week looks like a busy week on paper, which means it will be insane in reality. Here's  the list of happenings :
  • finish proofing 2 new patterns and send them to the printer (Watermelon Dream and Key Lime Surprise)
  • Stuff a bazillion reprinted patterns that got picked up from the printer on Thursday of last week (good thing we have TV to catch up on!)
  • Work on Mini-Stars Table Runner Version 2
  • Send out 7 quilts for quilting (yes, I have finished 7 quilts since the first of the year, crazy!)
  • Teach Touch of Spring at Monica's Quilt and Bead in Palm Springs, CA -- Friday
  • Cut out  and bag Glacier Star (I've been petting/selecting/reviewing the fabrics for over a week, it's time to get moving on them now)
  • Book flights to see Judy in Texas in April
  • Book flight to go to Montana in July
  • Finalize plans for a weekend in Catalina -- I so want to do the zip line tour of the island, I hope it is available the weekend we are going! 
I think that is plenty of work for now!!!!

Since we didn't have any comments about the Bali Fever giveaway, I am going to extend it until Monday the 20th!!!


  1. Love, Love, Love this new pattern. I am stilling working on the one we started two plus years ago but I am going to finish it this year! I am so impressed with how much you get accomplished Cat. You're my hero!!
