Electricity is back on!!
The electricity was off today...so it was not a machine piecing day for me, LOL! I did other stuff instead; like choose these plaid quilts to go to the quilt shop. My local quilt shop is getting a bunch of new plaid fabrics in, and the ladies asked if I had any plaid quilts I would be willing to lend them for a display. Yep...I think I can do that, LOL! I just chose little ones, so they would not have to deal with a big quilt in their little display area.
With no heat, no lights...what should I do? I opened the blinds for light and dove headfirst into the 1.5 inch scrap bin...and cut, and cut, and cut! A zillion little squares, for a postage quilt...someday.
And a bunch of little squares for bowties....someday. This took me hours, and hours, and hours...and it was great fun and very relaxing. Then the electricity came back on, and somehow stress came back, and the call of house cleaning and planning dinner, etc, came back into my head with the lights!!
Hey, would you like to barter? If anyone would like this book, I will swap it for some scraps or strings! I truly do use my scraps and strings up. I love them! I get misty eyed over scrappys!!
How about this group? Same thing goes! Let me know if you want to do this...first come, first served...
