Sun Poisoning And The Start Of A Great Quilt

Being practically "albino" (as one of my friends likes to call me) is not conducive with living in Texas. Yesterday I went to my sons T-ball game and came home looking like this. 

This looked pretty bad, until I woke up this morning to this.

This was after I put a family remedy that works amazingly well on burns. I have pretty much felt sick all day :( On a brighter note I'm getting a girls day tomorrow!! I couldn't be more excited to spend the day with a couple of great girlfriends (Julie over at Jolie Maxtin and Jessica over at Take A Long Hard Look) for a day full of sewing, eating and having a blast. I am going to start a new project which I said I wasn't going to do, but since I felt horrific all day I didn't have time to cut out a bunch of different projects that I was going to be taking over there tomorrow. This is true, but I also have quilting ADD. Here is the quilt I'm going to be working on tomorrow. 

This is out of Elizabeth Hartman's book The Practical Guide to Patchwork. I love this book and have wanted to make several quilts out of it forever and just haven't had the time. So tomorrow is the day. Also I think it will be perfect for some fabric I haven't had the heart to cut into yet. My Outfoxed fabric by Lizzy House is finally getting cut up. The colors I'm using are pinks and purples with a splash of this awesome yellow/orange for the frames. The background is going to be Kona Snow. 
No more petting it's time to get down to business!!

I'll see you guys back here tomorrow for some awesome giveaways!! I have two in store, so tell all your friends to stop by for a chance to win! 
Have a great night and stay out of the SUN!!


  1. Ouch, your sunburn looks sore! Have fun tomorrow and sew till it hurts, in a good kind of way!

  2. Oh you poor thing... I swear I can feel that burn from thousands of miles away!

  3. Oh good gosh! That looks so painful! I just moved from Tx (Denton) and I am no stranger to the Tx burn! I do love that quilt though!
