Tickled Pink Tuesday

A while back my partner in crime, Allie and I   tickled%20pink%20final3[1] decided we would use Tuesdays to post positive things….  Might not be big giant doings, but just something that’s positive!!  If you  would like to join in please free to grab the wonderful button Allie made and join us!

….and oh yeah this is positive!!!  My pumpkin is all pieced and will be sent off tomorrow to be quilted …RELIEF!!

This is not my quilt, but I’m doi002ng the binding for a friend…..it is stinkin’ cute!!

Notice all those sweet little crabs made with that shrinky dink fabric…..CUTE!!!  The friends they are visiting this week go crabbing all the time.  She is so excited to give them the quilt.  I am so excited for her….she did an amazing job .

One thing I tackled this week was my thread box.  With all the bindings I do there is such a wide range of colors I need.  JoAnns had thread 50% off so I filled in some color ways.   Inheriting my friend Deb’s thread stash still has me with016 a huge inventory of lights, browns, and blacks…so now I am really stocked.  This is the sweet little hanging my friend Carol made me……very appropriate for Tickled Pink Tuesdays!!

The weather here is hot and humid.  I’m trying not to focus on that.  So thinking of my monthly Xmas 005project helps, and then there’s this ……I have something brewing with this panel! 

Hope this finds you tickled about something …… Happy mid week to everyone.

Yay you finished your pumpkin! Definitely tickle-worthy! Oh my gosh Cheryl you must tell what pattern that crab quilt is, I LOVE IT.

Good for you on getting your thread in order, I packed more than half of mine away - when I first got into machine embroidery, we found some good deals and I have tons of rayon thread. Not so good for quilting, though I do use it for thread painting. Somehow I missed that sale on thread, darn it.

That wallhanging Carol made for you is so sweet!! [No pun intended, honest.]

I love the pumpkin and crab quilts. They are so creative. Your thread stash is fabulous and so neat looking. The big cupcake looks yummy. 'Be positive' is such an important thing to remember. I love your tickled pink Tuesday.
