Hello bloggy friends, I've missed you! Guess what - my machine is all fixed up and is ready for me to come get her! And I can't go til next Thursday. What have I been doing you ask? Well, you probably haven't, but I'm going to tell you anyway.
I've been cutting. Squares. Lots and lots of squares. Remember the Snippets bundle I won from Kelly at Charming Chatter? Well, I finally got up enough nerve to cut into it.
I've wanted to make a real patchwork quilt for awhile now - nothing but squares - and this is going to do it. There's enough here for TWO quilts, yippee! And I got the binding cut too!
I've also pulled out all of my 30's repro fabrics, and have been cutting them as well.
I'm cutting for different quilts - one [or however many I can make] just squares, the other this quilt from the book I won in Terry's give-away.
The plan is to have everything cut and ready to go by the time my machine gets home.
Yesterday, I read this book:
If you read it, keep a box of tissues handy. Oh my. Every book gets better.
I also joined a swap. Jenny of Elefantz and Vicki from Tozz's Corner are hosting a lovely swap! A Mug Hug and a Mug Mat - you're not allowed to put anything else in the package - and they will fit in a regular envelope! That will really keep the postage cost down, and I'm so thankful. This is going to be fun! They've drawn up some lovely designs you can use for your swap gifts.
Have a lovely weekend!
