I have an issue....

With all of my DEADLINES!!!! I've been working my butt off trying to get 3 things finished up, UGH! It's just not coming together! I still have yet to finish the Nightshade quilt, picking stitches out TAKES FOREVER!!!!! I've got the general concept for my Hoop-la-la partner's item, but I'm not liking it at all!

Here was my initial fabric pull. Loving the rainbow! But my partner didn't agree with the Keep Calm bit, so I took it out! And this is what I have so far...

I just can't get that circle good enough! It's driving me CRAZY!!! The fabric is just glued down for the time being, I'm waiting on my partner to tell me if she's liking this or not. (No, she doesn't know it's for her, but she's pretty good about commenting!) I have tomorrow left to finish this bad boy!!!!! YIKES!
And then I have until the 10th to get together my little secret project. If you want to find out more about it you can go here to Fluffy Sheep Quilting's website and sign up for Cindy's newsletter and just maybe you will see something from me in it! *wink wink*

Her are the fabrics I'm using. (I know, I can't help but loving the rainbow of colors!!!!)
I'll show you more sneak peaks as it comes closer to being published! I'm actually just about done with it though! *squeal*

Now for the book review....I've only had 3 votes, 2 for Tula Pink's book and 1 for Sew to Swap. I NEED MORE VOTES PEOPLE!!!! Let me know which one you'd rather me do a review on first!

Now, I'm off to do some more sewing!
~Hope y'all are having a great day!

Oh, I hope it all gets finished in time. Sometimes I like deadlines because they keep me motivated to get things done, but it sounds like you've been really working hard but not getting too far. Here's hoping it all comes togtether soon!
ps. I really liked the "keep calm" fabric!

I love your fabric choices and think it's going to turn out great. Here's something you might try to get the circles right. I can't tell how big the circle is but if you put a glass or cup or saucer down and then lay out the circles around it that might work.

Lay a bowl on the fabric. Then trace it with a disappearing ink fabric pen and THEN lay your circles down :) I hope that helps!!!
