Ok- RUSH Is OVER.....it is time to enjoy the view with Rush HOUR on ....DAY 1...

When I feel rushed I reach for my fav cup..
( ok, so I have a few ) pour my favourite
brew, today it is Sumatra Reserve...( yes same
name as our cat) and take in the moment
and let the RUSH pass...

* for those asking about the plant above this cup and future ones 
is it called a BACOPA...they flower all summer right till late fall....

Bacopa need a bit of shade..they don't like direct sun
and they require feeding every week...

Taking yesterday as I was writing this post! 

Oh yes- as I was saying....RUSH HOUR    has always been
part of my life...rushing for curfews, rushing for mass,
rushing for deadlines, rushing for product launches,....

You get the picture...much like many of our lives....
we always seem to be RUSHING....

Welllll this week and next I want you all to SLOW DOWN
long enough and praise our ladies who
RUSHED to get their RUSH HOUR by STUDIO E 
project completed...

They deserve applause and your accolades...

Much like our Carol who is a cheerleader EXTRA-ORDINAIRE
who happens to quilt like no other quilter I know...
and she does it as well as she does CHEER.

Note she is first on the list so you cannot miss
her, so be sure to say hi and make all of our ladies
who follow her FEEL THE LOVE....

Now don't rush it either....
You will be at the receiving end someday
and you will wish that saying "what goes around 
comes around" bestows JOY on you too....

  12. It sounds funny, but I am slowing down to take a gander at all the beautiful and creative uses of this Rush Hour fabric line. I was really looking forward to my class break so I could cross my fingers, turn on the computer (hold my breath until it started working properly) and check out today's posts. I certainly was not disappointed and am looking forward to the rest of the hop.

  13. There were some very clever uses of the Rush Hour fabric this morning! Guess that means I have to rush out and find some for a new jacket,LOL!

  14. First day and so many wonderful projects are happening!

  15. Another great hop Samm! I love the color combo in this set of projects! The bag is really awesome...love the handle ties and basic construction of it...pretty cool! I got a laugh from the bib...rush hour bib...perfect. I also loved the sewing mat, just too pretty to cover up! Thank you so much for hosting these awesome hops. A big thank you to Carol for cheering and keeping it all organized. I really enjoy your hops, they are a treat! I will be rushing back to see the rest *wink* ! Love ya Samm, xx~Cori

  16. First day for Rush Hour and it is moving along pretty fast. I was so happy to make the Wowed list that I almost rised my tempture and had to call my friend Linda to tell her this morning. I am looking forward to seeing all the other creative and inspirational ideas using this great looking fabric.
