Geezzz.. today I had one of 'those days' were even the most simple of things goes haywire! I had a text document.. that blinked..
Yes.. Blinked.... the entire document
Like a flashing light at a railroad crossing..
We finally got most of the blinking to stop.. except the bullet points.. which half blink...
half bullet... repeat
What is THAT all about? Sent to the person saying 'please excuse the blinking bullet points... sigh......
And there was more boring work stuff that didn't go smooth... or fast... or smooth AND fast.. either would have been good. So let me show you some fun stuff that arrived instead.. thank goodness fabric makes me so darn happy!!
The SewSampler has to be the BEST deal on the internet. You get a box for $24.95 (+shipping) and you get a box full of goodies that are usually over $60.00 in value, and it's really GOOD stuff!
This time my favorite rotary cutter... and a new sewline butterly pencil (pretty useful!)
And exclusive pattern.. and let me show you my other 2 favorites up close... (link to the items at the end)
A new needlecase! I have always loved needlecases and I carry one in my purse..
Right now i need a new one in my purse because i spilled stuff on the other (don't ask how that happened IN my purse.. but it did.... )
This will be perfect!
And a great Fat Eighth bundle with this GREAT Green from the Dixie Line... I love this green!
I can see using the Pie Ruler in the box to make dresdens with this!
I did a Facebook live.. you can watch it HEREand I show you everything right after I got it out of the box
and by the way.. the box is SUPER for storing project.. bonus! Plus the FatQuarter shop sends you a nice sticker to label what's in it.. so you don't have to open every.... single... one.... looking for that 'thing' you stored.
I never did that.. but someone else told me they did.. yeah.. that's it...
My free pattern share is the ADORABLE Panda quilt from the Fat Quarter shop!!! I reallyyyyyyy want to make this.. maybe 4 of them like above! The 4 blocks is made by Angie and the Navy is from Owen's Olivia.. both for the tour when the pattern was first released.
I don't own a lot of antiques.... so when I purchase one, it's because I fell head over heels in love with it. This quilt of baby baskets is soft and sweet. It was loved, you can just feel it when you hold it.
The pattern to make this quilt is in the same issue.. yes.. I'm in the issue TWICE!!! SO excited about that.
When the editors asked if they could mail back the quilt I said yes, but they also need to mail me the RED chair.. right? Don't you think I need that? They said they are not sure it would fit in my mail box. I assured them it would.. wink!
For some reason I don't think the chair is shipping... just a hunch.
I took the basket blocks and set four together for a pillow! It is made with some of my Moda fabrics. I went digging into my stash and found this great stripe I hidden there.
Stephanie Capps Dyke runs a website called Creative + Mindful, which is pretty amazing. She is a quilter and is making our Splendid Sampler quilt, yeah! She wrote me about something I'd said in my Newsletter. I said 'we MAKE time for what we really want to do'.
She asked to interview me for her 'Creative Heroes Series' and I had such fun answering her questions. I hope this interview gives you a peek inside how I run a creative business and keep motivated
Read HERE and I highly recommend you read her other articles too!
I have LOVED this book since it was first published. Loads of great quilts that are super fun to make in any fabric you love. Guess what... I spotted it for 1/2 price!!!I LOVE this book.. there are so many great quilts.. incredible quilts!
