Can you guess what I'm doing?


Yep. Moving. In Texas. In August. Silly girl! Packing fun starts this weekend and move is next weekend. So, I may go a little dark for a week or two, but next time you hear from me I will have emerged on the other side of my cardboard tower :)

And now on to the much more fun part of this post!

I've been a long-time fan of Lucinda at Septemberbird. She makes the most fabulous mini quilts. With chairs on them! I am just in awe of her work and her ability to free form piece the way she does. And such lovely hand quilting. Just take a gander at her Flickr set (lucyellen06) and you'll see why I just love her work. I think her quilts are really just so charming and have coveted them from afar for the last 2 years. So you can imagine how incredibly thrilled I was when I received a surprise mailing from Lucinda!

I have my very own chair quilt! So pretty and she included some of the very early Birdies and Chairs fabrics(the vintage ones as I like to think of them...)

I can't wait to display it in my new digs. :) Thanks again Lucinda. I really just adore it.

You are one lucky lady... you have no idea how many quilters covet her chairs and want one for themselves!!! Happy moving!
