Instant Gratification...

Justin got stranded today in Illiamna. Where is Illiamana? I have no clue but it is about an hour and fifteen minutes away. And he is stuck. Hopefully he will make it home tomorrow after they get a mechanic out there to fix the one engine that won't start. Yeah, gotta love antique airplanes...
It wouldn't have been so bad but we had been planning on him being home by one and then we were going to go out and do stuff. Since that didn't work out I needed to do something more satisfying than cleaning or chores and I wanted something that would make me happy fast. I am almost done with my Amy Butler Five and Dime quilt I started Monday and I only have the hand stitching on the binding left but I want to do a little project start to finish. Look what I found and made!


Isn't it cute? I found the pattern here and had to make one! it was fun and easy and I had everything I needed on hand. I used a fat quarter I got from a fun fat quarter swap I recently did. I loved it and thought it would be perfect. I may have to make more of these...

Also, our friends Ned and Rachael came over last night and they brought their cute little puppy, Tessa. The girls loved playing with her and here is a little peak at our night:

I put together a flickr pool for the Buttercup Bags:

I would love it if you have a couple minutes to add your pictures to the pool -- I'll put it up on my blog tomorrow or so, so make sure to put your blog address on your pictures so people can find your blog!

Happy Sewing! Thanks for sending me your link!

My email is being crazy. Ok, I finally decided. green / fresh poppies (for the big part) and yellow happy dots (for the top band) from midwest modern ohio sky. Can we do the little button thingy? So cute. Thanks Nic. I am soooo excited. When are you opening your etsy store?

Thanks! Brit
