I also picked up three great books, Just Desserts, Simple Comforts, and the new Jelly Roll book. I have found several patterns in each book that I really want to do, but don't know when I will get around to working on them. I am also really excited about a pattern that I bought, it is from Cake Walk and features embroidery on some of the blocks. I also got a great pattern for a tote bag. It looks like I have more projects planned than I can possibly get done any time soon.

I felt the call of Sweet Home earlier this week, and boy did I have fun. I had actually forgotten that Melissa was having a sale. I needed backing for two quilts and luckily the fabrics I selected were on sale. I got a red and white backing for the Firecrackers Quilt that still needs the final border. I had planned on finishing it this week, but the blue that I needed for the corners is still up at the cabin. Hopefully, I will get it soon and can get it finished. I also found a great tan fabric for a Stash Pot Pie pattern that I made last year. I am really excited about getting the stash pot pie pattern quilted, it is one that I plan on keeping. I haven't decided about the Firecracker quilt.
