Sister's choice progress
Focusing is really paying off here, folks. If I can just stop thinking of the next quilt, and cutting out pieces and parts for quilts in the far future...I can make real progress...see above!! Yippee Skippy, I have the Sister's choice blocks all done and sewn together! I have a pieced border planned, and cut out...just need some more time to get it all together. I love scraps, don't you? There sure are some ZINGER blocks in there, don't you think? I love those that don't fit!
I have a birthday coming up...and received the most beautiful package from my dear friend Lyn. It was all in a Parisian theme!! The little pink key ring is an Eiffel tower...so cute! There are lots of little wrapped packages in there...and I am to take one out every once in a while and open it! What fun!! Thank you, Lyn!!
The first gift? The Timecula quilt! At least that is what I call it...each block has an increasing number of pieces. It is so pretty!!
Have you seen these pendants? There are the artistic work of Julie, at Me and My Stitches, and I ordered one in her heart pineapple pattern, to wear at work in the heart hospital. It is the tiniest quilt block ever!! And so precise! She also has bracelets that she is making, with many different charms that you can order through the year. Fun, fun!!
Have a great day all! Thank you all for the huge response to last post...the drawing will be next week.
