MCM #22: 48 Hours

Okay, so sometimes life throws a curve ball and you just have to go with it.

I know some of you will relate to my weekend….when you have an aging parent, many times your plans for the day get tossed aside in order to care for that parent. Over the last several days I have spent time in a doctor’s office, hours in an emergency room, and days at the hospital with my Mom. She is doing well, and hopefully comes home today, but with all that going on you can see why there hasn’t been one stitch sewn by me since Wednesday.

So my crush this week is still the same as last week – the blue and mustard version of Oomph.

Oh, and a sale just for you! 🙂


To finish out this month of celebration, I am offering 20% off any of my patterns through my Craftsy or Etsy shops. No promo code needed….the prices have been adjusted to reflect the discount. How fun is that??

I love getting things on sale, and I want to give you the 20% discount to finish celebrating my second year of blogging. THANK YOU for sticking by me and following on this crazy quilting journey – I love you all!

This sale is good from now until midnight Tuesday, May 31, 2016.


Now, let’s check out some of the wonderful things you guys were crushing on last week!

Did you see this Lover’s Knot quilt by Heather of Quilts Actually? It is a paper pieced pattern and I love the secondary pattern.

Jayne of Twiggy and Opal is working on these tiny flying geese. The #miniminiquilt craze has taken over Instagram and I believe it’s because everything is so much cuter when teeny tiny. 🙂  These geese are tiny and I love them!

And look how close to finished Kate of Life in Pieces is with her Allietare quilt. I’m really looking forward to seeing this one quilted.

About Beth

I'm a wife, mother of two, and lover of all things crafty. I love to cook up new things in the kitchen and in my craft room, and sometimes get "licking the spoon" mixed up with "licking the fabric"!!

    Hope your mum is improving, we are the sandwich generation now aren’t we? I love your oomph quilt. And that’s a great name

  2. Tish says:

    Glad to hear that your mom is doing better and hope that she got to come home and all is better. Your blue and mustard quilt is definitely worth a second week of crushing over. I’m still crushing over it myself.

  3. Kate says:

    Hope you Mother continues to improve and that she did indeed get to come home today. Hope you get more time to stitch next week. I was surprised to open MCM this morning and see my version of Allietare featured, thanks for the grin. All the borders are on it now, I just need to get a decent picture of the finished flimsy.

    I wish your Mom a speedy recovery! Things come up all the time that need to be taken care of…aging parents, ourself, children…pets…the never ending list!

    hope your mom gets well soon – been through all of that kind of stuff and no longer have my parents but remember well what all the runs to the doctor and hospitals are like. You are lucky to still have her!

    It’s good that you live close to your mother so you can be right there for incidents like these. I hope she’ll have a better time of it this week! (And thanks for the pattern deal. I will take a look . . .)
