...and it's 8:45! That's a sign that we must be close to summer. You know, I have more pictures of my Alewives Fabrics visit the other day. Of course. How can I NOT go there with camera in hand?

Yummy, plush flannel birdies
It was a pleasant Sunday, I was with Joanie (go ahead, leave her a comment, it'll knock her socks off!), and there was beauty all around the store.
Rhea (aka Alewives Girl) encouraged me to cut my border fabric for my quilt (so handy that I toted it along), right there in the store with all the nifty gizmos. But really even better was her standing there lending me moral support and watching my patented technique of holding my breath while cutting fabric.

You see? Gorgeous.
More later about that sparrow fabric...
I kept coming back to this pattern.
I am not sure I am ready for it.
Good to know such cuteness exists.
I am excited to tell you that Ravenhill is having a giveaway: two prizes for the craftily and sewing-minded. Check it out---although by telling you, I am lowering my own chances to win. But I guess that's how much I like the people who are reading this blog.
Finally, a question or two. Sometimes, does getting out the door in the morning feel like a creative endeavor to you, finding the right shoes, having the teeth brushed, not being a broken record about socks on the floor, etc.? Or the elaborate way that we juggle the schedules of four family members? (And believe me, I would not consider us over-scheduled, just...well, four people). So do you have any tips for morning smoothness and/or peace? What's your favorite type of morning?
