I've been a very bad girl

Pin It
Holy crap!
In the last couple of days I've had six people email me and it started out something along the lines of, "I was reading you blog and..."
To which my reply was, "OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HAVE A BLOG!"
I didn't really forget about this little slice of happy.  I've just been so tremendously, morbidly busy that by the time I sit down to write I'm pretty much comatose. 
BUT!  I do have something I want to tell you about!
Way back in like, 2004 Sara emailed me about a Tula Pink sew along she was putting together.  I said absolutely! I'd love to be a part of it! And then two days later I said absolutely not!  But she talked me into it since I already had one of the quilts made.


Now, I did get it quilted.  It's still waiting for binding.  And I even got my post for her site done (I woke up at 4am on the due date to write it, shhhhh).  You can find the direct link to my post about the Cloudy Days quilt, including more pictures and info about the pattern here.
It only took me until the sew-along was half over to get around to posting about it on my blog but whatever.
You should definitely go over and check it out.  All sorts of quilty goodness, and PRIZES!
Here is the info on the rest of the sew along!
