Blabbing about.....

I have been working for the past few days which is why I haven't been posting anything. So with that said, I don't have any updates as far as sewing goes. I have been sewing a little, I have Shy's bandana quilt top halfway done, all I have to do is sew the rows together!!! YAY! I don't have a pic of it to show you yet, but soon, very soon!!!!
I've been searching around the web for things to help me get better at the whole quilting process from beginning to end! I found something that I really REALLY think will help me. It's a quilt along from last year, but hey, it's never too late to start one right? I don't know if I will do the WHOLE thing since it consists of 33 blocks, but I am going to try to work on at least one block a week for it. SO I will be adding the button on my sidebar! Any of you newbies out there to the quilting/sewing world should DEFINATELY check this out!!!!
Just  click on the pic on my sidebar to be taken to it! I'm starting on block one today!!!! The Log Cabin Block which works on the skills of accurate cutting and sewing, which I need TONS of help with!!!!! I will post a pic of the block as soon as I get it done!!! I'm just going to use what fabrics I have on hand for this project, so they probably all won't match, but that's okay!!!!! I'm really excited about this and I'm sure it will help my skills!
I've also started a pinterest account! I'll be adding the button to follow me as soon as I figure out how to do that! But I thought I would share a few of the pics I've pinned so far.
QUICK NOTE: I AM NOT CLAIMING THESE AS MY OWN PICTURES OR QUILTS OR ANY OF THAT! I just think they are all gorgeous and I hope one day to be HALF as talented as the people who made these quilts! I'm not exactly sure where they came from so, I don't have links for you to follow (sorry)!!!! As soon as I get my account linked up go to my pinterest and follow the links there to find out who made these!!!!
I think this is the PRETTIEST quilt I have EVER seen!!!!!!!!! I L-O-V-E it!!!!!!
Another good one for inspiration, don't you think?
I love the way this person used black and white to make the pink flowers just POP!
HUGE FAN OF THIS ONE!!!!!!! I have a thing for black and white quilts w/ a little POP to them!
Anywho....hope to be able to post some sewing updates soon for you guys! I'll be working on that quilt along, anyone who wants to join me in doing so PLEASE let me know!!!!

On another side note: I still have not heard back from one of the winners of my giveaway so I will be drawing another name later today and posting the new winner!!!!!
~Hope you all are having a great day!!!!!!!!!!!~
