I'm checking in by moving around the internet quilting world: sewing/quilting, tweeting, reading blogs, commenting and now posting a blog post. I'm ready to field the ball and move it down the field to score. I have not defined what the equivalent of scoring a goal in soccer is to the quilting world, I just know that I want too.
After almost a week of minimal sewing I was able to get back into the swing of things this morning to work on some projects. My super cute nephew Nick just turned five and so I made him a pillowcase out of San Francisco Giant colors. My siblings and I were all born in the Bay area and although we were all raised and live in Southern California, they remain die hard SF Giant and SF 49er fans.

After my WIP Wednesday post last week where I had taken a photographic inventory of my quilts in progress, I went fabric shopping to find quilt backs. I found fabric for the back of Italian Sorbetto and Sliced Coins and I also picked out a darling dot fabric for the Dots Swap hosted by Debbie of A Quilter's Table and Rachel of Snippets of Sweetness.
I just this minute ran to the front of my house to get the mail and I had another envelope with a dot fat quarter! So much fun reading the return address (the traveler in me craves far away places), carefully opening up the envelope and gently pulling out the contents inside. This is my first swap and I'm already hooked. My envelopes are ready and will be mailed out tomorrow.

Enjoy the remainder of your Monday,
