Hello fellow bloggers....
I am so sorry it has take me so very long to post. I spend what seems like hours on this crazy laptop and never get around to posting. My plan is to get better and spend some real time over the next few weeks getting in the habit of updating at least 2x's a week.
So here goes...
1) I have joined a block-swap at our local quilt shop. The "rules" are flowers or tight pattern and tone-on-tone cream 9 patch blocks. Make 12 and each month get 12 back. At the end, you will have 72 total. I have decided to theme my blocks and make 4 extra for me. At the end, I will have a 24 blocks of my own. Check the photo of my first blocks.
2) The group Heartstrings that I am a part of held a Block Party to get back stock of red and blue centered string blocks. I was able to make 9 red and 6 blue plus I found one blue that got lost in a box of Christmas strings.
3) I am working on 50 string Christmas stocking to be donated to soldiers via a Heartstrings member. This is a fun and easy project. Over the summer I got a bunch of yards of quilt shop holiday fabric on sale. I am hoping I have enough for backing as I saved yardage with candy canes.
4) I am goign to try and join a fabric swap called Spare Change via the blog Chickpea Sewing Studio. Look for more information as I get more involved.
Ok, that is my update for tonight. Please remember to VOTE next month!
