MCM #87 – Vacationing

As you might have guessed from the title of this blog post (and from the numerous times I’ve mentioned it in a few of my previous posts), I am on vacation this week. 🙂

While you read this, I’m probably sitting on a beach with sand between my toes and sunshine on my shoulders, people watching and drinking something fruity and cold. That is my crush for this week’s Main Crush Monday!

What is yours?

In case you haven’t heard, Craftsy is having an “All You Can Watch” day, where ALL their video classes will be available for 24 hours to view for free. Yes, FREE!  (Affiliate links)

So, if there is a class you’ve been thinking about purchasing, now is the time to check it out before you buy. Classes are free to view on Monday, September 4th from 12:01 am MST to 11:59 pm MST. This is a great opportunity to watch as many classes as you can. You can bet I’ve got a couple on my wish list that I’ll be checking out today!

Last week there were so many great projects linked up to the MCM party. Nicole’s project (of Handwrought Quilts) is so scrappy with 2.5″ squares – it looks fantastic!

Teresa of Teresa Quilts is working on a log cabin quilt. This was one of those projects that once started couldn’t be stopped – all of us have one of those, right?? Teresa has made wonderful progress on her quilt top and I look forward to seeing it finished.

I really like this baby quilt Tish (Tish in Wonderland) and hubby Dave (The Quilt Engineer) made. I love that there are no borders, I think it gives the quilt a contemporary vibe and I’m really drawn to that. Gonna have to add something like this to my TO DO SOMEDAY list…

I know you’ll understand when I say that my response to comments will be slow this week. I’m going to try to stay off my computer (except for those free Craftsy classes), so I’ll respond once I get home next week. Thank you so much for taking the time to link up and comment each week. You guys mean so much to me!

Now it’s your turn to share your crush for this week. You can link any blog post, Instagram or Flickr pic. We would love to see what has you excited to be in your sewing space – here’s how to link up:

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"!!

  2. Thank you so much for featuring my quilt. I’m working on the borders now, and know what I’m doing for the back. That will be scrappy of course!

    Have fun! Please drink something fruity for me. If you are sinking your toes in the sand somewhere that a storm is going to blow up, please high tail it home to the hills!!!!

  8. Enjoy your beach time. And, I hope you aren’t any where near Irma — she looks to be big and nasty.

    As soon as I awoke, I went straight to Craftsy. The first class I wanted to check out was Angela’s new class, but sadly, it didn’t seem to be available. Of course, there are plenty others! Joy your vacation!
