Hopeful Weekend Sewing

I'm sure I speak for everyone who lives on the east coast when I say "enough with the natural disasters".  My husband and I have spent the past three days dealing with water in our basement.  While it hasn't been fun, we are very fortunate compared to others.  Many people in our neighborhood had to evacuate their homes due to the flash flooding, so we could have had it much worse!  I'm hoping we are finished with the excitement for a little while.  I have had my fill of earthquakes, aftershocks, hurricanes and tropical storms!  At least until winter...then I hope we get a huge snow storm!  :)

Now that things are somewhat back to normal, I'm going to spend naptime with my poor neglected sewing machine!  Not only do I need to finish quilting the Kalediscope quilt, but I need to get moving on my tops for 100 Quilts for Kids.  DC Modern's sew-in is Friday night, so I need to get working...

I found a great article on Denyse Schmidt in the WSJ.  If you are a fan of her work, you won't want to miss it!  I always love to read about how my favorite artists find their inspiration!  Sadly, the article didn't confirm the rumor that Flea Market Fancy is being re-released, but a girl can hope!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

I don't think the FMF re-release is a rumor - I heard it's scheduled for January 2012. Here's the link:

Enjoy your weekend sewing! : )

Lee beat me to it. It says on Denyse's site that some of the patterns are to be re-released. I got the impression from the description that they might be in different colorways, but that could just be me reading into things.

I received the Terrain charms last week too! Thanks so much. I think I might be making Whirligigs with them.
