I’m SEW In…

Did you sign up and participate in tonight’s Sew IN?  If not, you are missing out on a lot of fun and a lot of sewing!! Click on the Sew In button on my side bar to find out more…


SEW WHAT DID I DO?  Well…let me put it this way…it’s 10:30pm…Friday Night and I am pooped!!  Just finished a night of stitching…I’m loving this hand dyed wool..all soft and mottled..I haven’t started to add any special effects because first I need to stitch around each little wool appliqué…it’s going to take quite a few evening going around the yellow monster mitt…all his fingers are taking forever…You do like yellow monsters, don’t you Quilt Sue? hee hee…. (Now if you have NO idea what I am talking about, then you need to check yesterday’s post…:o)


When I needed to stand and stretch…I went through my scrap fabrics and cut the bigger pieces into 5 inch scraps and the smaller pieces into 2 1/2 inch squares…thought I’d try to get organized…I really want to try my hand at making a ‘true scrappy’ quilt like…this one using leaders and enders as seen on Quiltville.  Check it out!!


I hope you had as much fun as I did during the Friday Night Sew In!   But I’m calling it a night- I’m ready for the 3 B’s~ Bath, Bed and Book!!

BUT BEFORE I DO THAT…My bartering quilt buddy, Quilt Sue (Quilt Times) is having a wonderful Give Away RIGHT NOW~Yup, this lovely book…and you could win it in plenty of time for Christmas!
