A DAY LATE ... AND SOMETHING FUN

Yup, I am a day or so late for posting my picture for the Between Charming Friends Quilt Along.  It has been fun to work on - I have never made a sixteen patch block, and think now that it is finished it looks pretty darn cute!  I think you can still join if you are interested or just "peep" at the progress at Kelly's Charming Chatter http://cottoncharmquilts.typepad.com/charmingchatter/2010/06/index.html or Darlene's  http://quiltingdaze.blogspot.com/
I picked these Carsters up at Bearpaws and Hollyhocks QS yesterday when I was working.  They are the cat's meow!  They come two to a pack and are very inexpensive!! Have you ever taken a cold glass of something to drink while driving the car and when you went to pick it up and take a sip it dripped all over you?  Or have you stashed a paper serviette into the hole of your vehicle cup holder to catch the drips, only to find it sticking to your drink, and falling off as you are sipping and driving?  Well, no more!!!
There are all kinds of pretty, fun things printed on the carsters, the two I picked were   "Are we there YET? with LOL and smiley faces printed all over the background and this one is for Kim - 
"She looked So awake...So Alive!  Was it caffeine or botox?"
She is the one who was telling me the other day about her petrified serviette .... so, I knew I had to get her a set for her car.  
(It could save a life....)

So my next event is getting ready for my Tea Party - Time for Tea and Embroidery at Bearpaws today.  
Thank you for stopping by to visit.

I really like the colors your using for your blocks. These blocks are popping up everywhere and it's fun to see what fabrics everyone is using.

Thanks for stopping by my blog to say hello. I was late too with my QAL update so showed it with the start of sewing it together too. I love your fabrics. The blocks make me think of an old fashioned deck of playing cards. Glad I started this QAL even though it has been hard for me to think out of the box on mine.

Hope you are having a super weekend!

Hugs from Holland ~
