Om nom nom.....I still want candy and a finish..

If you have never played the app game "Cut the Rope" I would suggest never downloading it. If you want to loose large chunks of your life then download it right now. The basis of the game is this adorable little monster (I think) called Om Nom.
When you feed him candy he looks like the plush on the left, when you fail he looks like the plush on the right. In any event he is very cute. And it brings me to my next point, the I WANT CANDY fabric swap. The sign ups for the fabric swap ends 10/21 at midnight. To date we have about 20 participants and if you haven't signed up yet you have less than 24 hours and counting.

So here is what I have been up to this last week. I have been cutting 2.5" squares like its my job. To date I have 500 different squares. I received some squares from a 2.5" fabric swap over at Gnome Angel. That fabric swap inspired me to host one of my own. With the squares I have plus the ones from the upcoming swap I should have about 1000 different fabric squares. Now I just need to decide what I want to sew with all these beauties.

I have been cutting and packaging candy bags for my swap participants.

I have also been cutting the prize pack of 200 2.5" fabric squares for the give away. See more here 

I have been working on my scrappy stash blocks for the Ellison Lane Scrappy Stash QAL. I have 5 finished and 9 blue blocks in the almost finished stage.

And last but certainly not least my friend Megan had a beautiful baby girl a few weeks back named Marin.

Even though this little lady stayed in her momma for over 42 weeks I still couldn't get it together to finished the quilt before she was born. Megan didn't find out the gender of the baby before she was born.  So I went with gender neutral brights. The baby's grandmother used the same line of fabric 10 little things by moda. I am not bitter at all. Here is the finished quilt top. I hope to have it quilted before the baby starts college.

Night one and all!

I WANT CANDY Fabric Swap and a giveaway

     I've been away from the blog for a bit. My husband, mother and I were off on vacation in Arizona. We went to Phoenix, Prescott, Sedona, Flagstaff, the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam and Las Vegas. Some areas we were in were hot hot hot. The grand canyon was moderate but Phoenix and the Hoover Dam were definitely in the high 90's. 
Grand Canyon
      We flew home threw Minneapolis and spent the weekend home in Wisconsin.. It's quite a bit cooler at home and now I am in Cleveland which is no warmer. In any event I am happy to be back, the desert was too high and too dry.
      This cooler weather reminds me that Halloween is around the corner. Leaves are changing and there is a chill in the air. Stores are full of fun size candies for trick or treaters but what about us adults.....where is our candy???? With that in mind I am hosting a Halloween Candy Fabric swap. "Candy" is a piece of fabric 2.5" square. So much can be done with these pieces as mentioned in my previous post. Here are the details......
  1. You'll be swapping a Fabric Candy Square Pack. The pack contains 50 2.5" squares of quilting fabric. You can fussy cut squares if you would like but it is not required. Please use high quality quilt shop fabrics and do not include selvage or sew scraps together. The pack should include 50 different fabrics, if this is not possible do not include more than 2 squares of any one fabric.
  2. Each participant will have 5 partners for the swap, so you will be cutting 250 2.5" squares, you will end up receiving 250 2.5" squares in return.
  3. Only swap quality material you would be happy receiving. Fabrics can be any print, or color, pretty or ugly. All fabric should be 100% quilters cotton.
  4. Fabric should be enclosed in a zip top baggie (snack size works great for this size square)
  5. Sign ups for the swap end on Sunday October 21st 2012 at midnight. If you would like to participate please email me at with your name and address before the deadline.
  6. Once the deadline for sign up has passed you will be emailed the list of swap partners and you must mail the packages by Friday October 26th, 2012.
  7. If you would like to have more partners you can, just state in the email how many partners you would like in multiples of 5 (5,10,15,20)
  8. Swap open to domestic and international participation.
  9. If you have any questions please email me at

And now for the give away...........
