Why Do I Blog?

…because I get to meet the nicest people, that’s why!!  For instance, yesterday I wrote about ‘Stitching Lines’…this product here…

(If you missed it, you can read yesterday’s post here to find out about this awesome product!)

Anyways… low and behold I get the nicest email from Mary the INVENTOR of this product!!  How cool is that!! 

I discovered Mary’s blog (Marin and Colusa’s Blog) and read all about Stitching Lines…she has videos on how to use this product- plus additional videos on how to use ‘Stitching Lines’ to make Snowball blocks faster and easier!  Mary also shows how we can turn a large square into 8 half square triangles using the Stitching Lines!!

Hurry over and see how incredible these little lined strips are…and when you are finished looking, you will probably want to go to Mary’s on-line shop (Marin and Colusa)…to order your own package of 100 strips!! 

Yes, you meet the nicest people while blogging…oh and did I mention how Mary is sending me a FREE package so that I can try it out for myself!!  Incredible!  Thanks so much, Mary!!

On the quilting front…I know you are probably getting sick of these little baskets but…I finished the hand quilting last night and I’m hoping to get the binding on this weekend!!  Yahoo!

I love your baskets and would never tire of looking at them. Your stitching is great. Do you use a hoop on a small quilt like this? I love the look of hand quilting, especially on little quilts, but like applique, I keep putting it off.
