Om nom nom.....I still want candy and a finish..

If you have never played the app game "Cut the Rope" I would suggest never downloading it. If you want to loose large chunks of your life then download it right now. The basis of the game is this adorable little monster (I think) called Om Nom.
When you feed him candy he looks like the plush on the left, when you fail he looks like the plush on the right. In any event he is very cute. And it brings me to my next point, the I WANT CANDY fabric swap. The sign ups for the fabric swap ends 10/21 at midnight. To date we have about 20 participants and if you haven't signed up yet you have less than 24 hours and counting.

So here is what I have been up to this last week. I have been cutting 2.5" squares like its my job. To date I have 500 different squares. I received some squares from a 2.5" fabric swap over at Gnome Angel. That fabric swap inspired me to host one of my own. With the squares I have plus the ones from the upcoming swap I should have about 1000 different fabric squares. Now I just need to decide what I want to sew with all these beauties.

I have been cutting and packaging candy bags for my swap participants.

I have also been cutting the prize pack of 200 2.5" fabric squares for the give away. See more here 

I have been working on my scrappy stash blocks for the Ellison Lane Scrappy Stash QAL. I have 5 finished and 9 blue blocks in the almost finished stage.

And last but certainly not least my friend Megan had a beautiful baby girl a few weeks back named Marin.

Even though this little lady stayed in her momma for over 42 weeks I still couldn't get it together to finished the quilt before she was born. Megan didn't find out the gender of the baby before she was born.  So I went with gender neutral brights. The baby's grandmother used the same line of fabric 10 little things by moda. I am not bitter at all. Here is the finished quilt top. I hope to have it quilted before the baby starts college.

Night one and all!


  1. You have been busy! What an adorable baby girl - you had best finish that quilt because Marin would look so cozy wrapped up in it.

  2. Hi Dhia. I'm working on the log cabin blocks too! So fun, gorgeous babe
