BEAUTIFUL FABRICS AND A FANTASTIC NEW TOOL
CALLED THE SNEAK PEEK PREVIEW
Look what I received yesterday.... my quilted basket from Kristi Van Os who lives in Tuscon Arizona...
THANK YOU Kristi - I love it!!! My quilting friends tell me that I own every tool known to man when it comes to sewing and quilting, but I DID NOT own the Sneak Peek Preview gizmo!
It is always so exciting to receive a squishy parcel in the mail! I can't wait to take my beautiful new bag for its first outing - for coffee..... of course!!
|Back of quilt, with label|
Today we finally delivered the Chubby Chicks quilt, so I can now show you the back of the quilt and label. I made this label using THIS method. I find hand stitching through the treated label fabric to be hard going, but by adding a border around the label, hand stitching is easy!
The weather has turned very cold here today, so I have just dug out my stash of flannel fabrics and might run up a quick throw. I have had these fabrics for years, always intending to do "something" with them, so now I will do a very quick friendship star pattern using very big squares - I think I have enough fabric to do another quilt top so might cut out that one at the same time. It is for a churn dash pattern.
School holidays started for my son yesterday, so it's three weeks of fun, fun, fun! I know, it seems like only last week that we just finished the last lot of holidays!!!! Fortunately he is a tennis player, so for much of the time he will be out on the courts!
Time to sew!!
