Busy New Year!

We have started off the year being very productive! We most likely wont end that way! Really.

So hear we go. I gave up deep cleaning my room in order to get Poop's room done. Sears after 3 days was finally able to locate her mattress and box springs. We picked up my dad's truck and headed back to Sacramento. First stop quilt shop, more in a minute, second stop Sears Warehouse. We got the mattress and head home to clean out Poop's room. I still need to get the closet and Armoir done but we got a good start on it. By 8:45pm last night we had the princess bed put together. Here it is...

After we got the bed made I asked Poop "how do you like your princess and the pea bed?" Poop asked "who pee in my bed?" We were laughing to hard to tell her the story of the Princess and the Pea and she was PISSED that someone already peed in her new bed.

Papa came over today to swap out trucks again and got to be the first to see her bed. I watched my dad's blood pressure rise. The bed is about three feet of the ground, Poop tells you "do it myself." Dad just knew she was going to fall off. She showed him a few times how she does it.

Before we picked up the mattress we stopped at Quilter's Corner in Rancho Cordova. I was in need of thread to quilt my Presidents Challenge project. Sorry my project has to remain Top Secret until the voting in February. Can you believe this I bought NO Fabric!!!! I am doing Judy's Stash Busting Challenge this year so I have decided if I don't need it for a project or I am not totally in love with it I don't need it! So I bought 3 patterns along with my Thread.

First is Crabapple Hill's Over the River and Through the Woods. The top, middle and bottom stripes are done in Black work and are gorgeous! I saw a customers finished quilt and had to have the pattern.

Second pattern is again from Crabapple Hill. It is Hocuspocusville! Their are a dozen witches shops. Everything from a quilt shop, laundry, cafe, broom sales and more! I can't wait to start this one!

The last pattern I got was Ribbons Quilt by The Pine Needle. Quilter's Corner had darling kits in a floral pastel for this quilt and I was tempted to get one. I am thinking about making this out of Black White and Turquoise for my other Challenge Blog.
This weekend I have also been productive quilting. I have made more than half of my blocks for my Guild"s President's Challenge, American Patchwork & Quilting Journal Cover for my Stash Buster log, started my Calendar Quilt Challenge, and I am finishing up a Glam Bag! I am off do more laundry.
