I've had some lovely things in my mailbox lately, and I thought I'd share. Joanne over at Splitting Stitches had a give-away recently, and bless her heart, she didn't just pick a winner, she picked EVERYONE who commented. She got a lovely new GO! cutter and look what she sent!
And they're all backed with fusible web - oh glory - what shall I make with them? I was thinking I could dress up a hoodie [love and live in hoodies], or some t-shirts, or make a small wallhanging. They'll have to marinate for a little while til I've thought. Thank you so much Joanne! By the way, she does lovely machine quilting, her other blog is Insanely Cheap Quilting - check her out!
And then, my lovely friend Mary-Kay from Quilting Junkie sent me some tiny clothepins. I had my stitcheries from Jenny hanging on a Moda tape from a jelly roll, but with the big, regular clothespins, and was looking for small ones. She had some and was so sweet to share!
I used the bigger ones to hang the stitcheries, I think I need to design a clothesline quilt for the really teeny ones - aren't they fun? Thank you so much Mary-Kay! And just to show you I'm really using them, here's a TERRIBLE picture of them in action. It's dark now and the batteries are dead, or I'd try to get a better one.
Those are a pattern from Jenny of Elefantz, oh golly don't you just love her patterns! In case there's someone out there in blogland who doesn't know, Jenny just had surgery on her hand and could use your prayers for a quick and complete recovery.
Things are progressing slowly on the Sis Boom quilt, I had a terrible sewing day today though - I had to rip out one block three times. I decided to quit before I sewed a finger into it. Some days are like that, I guess. I hope your days are full of smooth sewing this week!
