Celebrating Deadlines!

I was up until 2am this morning ! 


I have a deadline to meet.

Because I said I would enter a quilt.


Good question!

It opens Friday ... THIS week! 

Am I ready?

No ... BUT I will be !  

I am off to Dublin on Thursday for the Quilters Guild of Irelands weekend retreat.

The theme for the exhibition this year is CELEBRATE.  

Talk about lack of inspiration for this one  ....
  but then it hit me! 

 Jumping for joy and celebrating LIFE itself.   

And talking of deadlines ...

Where is the Cat in the Hat when you need him?

Last week Mrs Quilt me Happy was busy. 
In fact she was so busy the week past in a blur.  

Mr Moda Man came to visit with a big bag of lovely fabrics, 

jelly rolls and charm packs.

Mrs Quilt Me Happy was VERY happy but when Mr Delivery Man turned up 
Mrs Quilt me Happy went into a bit of a  'tiss'  trying to find storage S P A C E

 She wished she had a magic cupboard just like QUILTSUE 
but not a spare corner could be found 

so Mrs Quilt ME Happy had to spend the week 


rearranging, cutting and folding. 

Mrs Quilt Me Happy got very bored of this though and  took a break 
to play dressing up and wore  Mrs Pattern Writer and Mrs Teacher hats 
for a while

After she had made another big FAT MESS... 

 she  started to get clean and tidy

 Mrs Quilt me Happy was very pleased 
and sat down to rest feeling very happy.
