Monday, Monday, this and that

Scraptastic Tuesday

First, please don't forget to link up a scrap project in progress or completed or your scrap management tips to the September Scraptastic Tuesday link up - only one per person. The link closes tonight (Monday) at 10:00 p.m. MST and I will post the winners on Tuesday morning. (go here to link up)

Next, I am participating in a blog hop for Christa Watson's new book, Machine Piecing With Style. It is truly a lovely book filled with great instruction in quilting on your regular sewing machine and also lovely projects.

The hop starts today and here is the schedule so you can check out the stops:
Plus, there will be additional stops on the hop from the awesome people listed below. They will be sharing their insights including book reviews, interviews, sample blocks, and other interesting content you won’t want to miss.

My quilt for the hop - my pattern is Lightning - is almost ready for photographs and its big reveal on the 24th. I finished the quilting this past weekend. It was so wonderful to be actually quilting again, I have missed it so much.

Last, I signed up to go to Sew Pro, which is a conference next September. It is not a sewing retreat, it is all about taking your blogging, writing, pattern designing and fabric designing to the next step. The instructors are fantastic too. I don't suppose any of you want to come to Chicago next fall too?

I've a lot of day job work this week and then I have a quick work trip at the weekend. But I have lots more to share to catch you up, so watch for more here on that.
