Check it Out!

I didn't get to go but our quilting guild had the grand reveal on all the Bottled Rainbows projects this past week. A friend took mine in for me. There was a blind voting for the winner but I knew Diane would win because I'd seen some of her blocks. How gorgeous is this?
Diane did her own take on the quilt and I think it is just stunning. She won another quilt as her prize.

Don't you love it when someone is able to take a specific project and really make it their own? I know we all change fabrics and maybe even change the size of the project, but I love the idea of taking it a huge step further as she did with this quilt. Just amazing.

Are you doing anything fun this Labor Day! Hubby decided he was tired of the the Closet Made stuff in our bedroom closet and is currently redoing it all. Have you ever wondered just how much stuff is in your closet? Yeah, right now I wish I didn't know.
I'm really hoping it gets done before bedtime tonight because, otherwise, we will be sleeping in the guest bedroom!

Oh yeah, looking for a giveaway? Check over at Toni's website, SewFrench. You could win a $25 gift card to Pink Chalk Fabrics or Amazon. How cool is that? And definitely check out her blog while you're there. She does great work!

Hubby's closet rod fell down a few weeks ago. He couldn't believe how much stuff he had in there. Lots of it went to Goodwill, but, there is still lots left that haven't gone back in yet. Thank goodness we have 3 empty bedrooms, since both boys are at college. I think he has stuff in all 3 rooms.

OMG that bottled rainbow is stunning. I'm chuckling at the bedroom pic and sure hope you got a decent night's sleep last night.
