Cupcakes, Quilt Alongs and Some Fur

If you're out and about this weekend, just wanted to let you know that some new goodies featuring some familiar designs have landed at Michaels Craft Stores! This time around, the assortment includes my new favorite thing...cute cupcake wrappers! Don't you want your cupcakes to match your quilts?!
There are also a bunch of fun stationery items like note pads, notecards, sticky notes, clothespins, chubby pens, journals and even emory boards. That's right, emory boards. You can whip one out of your handbag at your next quilt guild meeting and be the envy of all your friends (well, maybe)!
Also just wanted to let you know about the Friendship Quilt Along that Moda is hosting.
It starts this Monday the 18th and continues through March 1st. You'll have a chance to win lots of prizes while collecting a total of 28 different 9" quilt blocks. Moda's blog post on March 1st will give a setting option to make a quilt using some of the blocks. So grab a button...
... tell your friends, mark your calendar and please join us. It'll be fun and will brighten these last couple weeks of February! Here's the blogging/hopping schedule:

feb 19th

Whew, you'll have the weekend to rest — or sew the blocks you've collected this far!

march 1st

For anyone following along, there is also a flickr group that you can join to share the blocks you've made! We'd love to see :)

Finally, i know i've been a little lax about Furry Friday, but that's because *every* day is a furry day on Instagram! It's a little overboard, but i can't help it. So if you need a daily dose of fur (or hourly as it may be), please join me over there.
Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. I love the block you made and Honey Honey! My favorite friendship quote is "A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the word". Thanks for the chance to get some great fabric!

  7. A friend is someone who thinks you're a good egg,even though you're slightly cracked--Love your block for the hop.

  8. Friends is someone that is happy for you and stand for you.

  9. My favorite quote is "Friendship is like an Old Quilt, it just gets better with Age!"

  10. My favourite quote: “Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: "What! You too? I thought I was the only one.”
    ― C.S. Lewis

  11. "If you're alone, I'll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I'll be your shoulder. If you want a hug, I'll be your pillow. If you need to be happy, I'll be your smile... But anytime you need a friend, I'll just be me."

  12. I had a good friend bring us dinner last week. I was passing a kidney stone. Friends like that are the very best, I don't know what I would do without them.
