Yes, Santa is alive and well and living in your nearest Thrift Shop…and look at what he had for me!!
BUT there are a million of each stripped block..plus a stack of left over strips…
Hmmmm…what to do with them??
Well there is always the old standby Split Rail…perfect to make several baby quilts…throw a little appliqué on the sides…hmmmOr perhaps I can fiddle around and see what the GO! can do with these blocks……I do have that Equilateral Triangle that I haven’t used YET…
Moral of the story…never poopoo a Thrift Shop…you just never know what’s waiting for YOU!! And for ONLY $3!!
Ohhhh and speaking of WAITING FOR ME…Look what was waiting on my foyer step!! (while I was at Heritage Quilting, Hubby got the call from the Sewing Centre that Jan was all better, so he whipped down to Victoria her pick it up!! SEW Sweet of him!!) Yup, Jan is back and in the peak of health! For under $100 I now have a well lubed and oiled sewing machine AND bonus~ out of Bobbin Winding Mode!! Although she isn’t a Janome Horizon (LOVE those machines!) she is ALL mine and ready to turn those blocks into something MAGNIFICENT!! Yikes! Feisty isn’t she!
Hey do you see my Sewing Bag behind Jan…?? It’s the bag that I take to Heritage…
Ohhhh my…a perfect fit!!! I never thought of making Jan her own chubby bag!! Maybe a few inches taller…and out of something sturdier…maybe denim or upholstery fabric? BUT it’s that darn fusible fleece…it’s so expensive!! (Would you believe that it cost almost $30 just for the fusible fleece to make this bag? I need something cheaper…but what?….Any ideas out there in Blogland??)
Sew another PROJECT!! There is no end to them…:o)
Hope you are working a great project…and have a long list of projects on the back burner!! It’s what keeps us young and moving..after all quilters DO live to be 100+! They have too!! Too much fabric and too many patterns not too!! SEW keep stitching!
Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Quilting!~P
