Happy Monday

Wow! I am actually doing a Monday post... it has been weeks.

How was your weekend? Mine was a bit busy. Saturday was the monthly meeting of the Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild. We are so fortunate to have so many talented people in our guild. One of those is our Joy-Lily. She is the author of this book:


You can pick up a copy at amazon. (I used Joy-Lily's link so she would get the amazon credit :) )

Joy-Lily spoke to us about her book and about the process of getting published. It was a great time. Then we got a fun trunk show of the quilts from the book... here are a couple of my favorites:





Afterwards we had cake and Joy-Lily graciously signed books for us. (I bought one and you can bet there will be a little Friday happiness happening here with it... if you know what I mean ;) )


Thank you again Joy-Lily!

Normally my husband and I host a Superbowl party but this time he had to leave for a business trip early in the morning on Sunday. So I actually got to stitch for a few minutes. I am a tiny bit late with Sunni's block from the Stash Bee for January... but I think it came out pretty cute...


Don't tell me who won the Superbowl I recorded it and will watch it with the super hubby on Saturday :) Now I will make like an ostrich so I don't hear about it :)

Have an amazing Monday!

Talk soon!
