Glamour Attack!!

 It doesn't seem that long ago that my daughter started school...and then high school seems like five minutes ago.  So it was a bit surreal last Friday when the school formal took place.  A few friends came over for pre-party partytime!

So many gorgeous girls!  And here she is, almost all grown up, with her very cute beau.

 They had a great time and are now busy studying for wretched exams.  Not long to go sweeties!

 On the sewing front, another two Caswell blocks have been completed. I like the first

 but the second might get some reverse sewing before it is set into the top.  It's a little plain...needs some pizazz!

 My mind has started to wander far and wide, thinking about what project will be next. And as my mind wanders, my feet wander in and out of fabric stores seeking inspiration.....which I always find in the form of a collection of fabrics that end up in my bag (lol).

Hmmmmmm...............I wonder what's cooking!   These would be perfect for Worthing Downs (Megan Carrol, available from Threadbear).......but I also have a pile that has been waiting to become Ann's Legacy (Di Hall, published in Primarily Quilts available from Threadbear) for some time.  So I think Ann wins.

 I have also been collecting Chintz's to start Love Entwined (see link on side bar) which is gorgeous too.

Too many beautiful choices......better get those fingers flying!

I hope you are lucky enough to have too many beautiful choices too!

Your daughter looks gorgeous, love the corsage. They grow up in the blink of an eye don't they. I like both your blocks and you really have to tell me where you got that cameo fabric from - I really need some in my stash!

Isn't it amazing when they grow up so fast? It's hard and yet exciting at the same time. Your DD looks gorgeous with her beau. Bet she had a great time! Good luck to her with exams. Love your Caswell blocks! Love your fabrics! Love what you want to sew up next! Sigh. My applique days seem to be behind me at this point. I wonder if I'll ever get back to it.
