400


This is my play on the mini charm fun being offered at Sew Lux - see side button for the string along - now we are playing with charms. I have been trying to use my orphan charms in projects and this was just too cute. So I made use of some Salt Air, left over backing fabric, left over binding, and some scrap batt - now a cool mini hanging over my computer. Why not hop over and see her tutorial, dig out those orphan charms (or cut your own) and brighten your wall.


And here is this month's Schnibbles 'Bibelot' done in Salt Air. I kept to a small wallhanging - remember it is my year of small projects. I was not really that into this pattern, hence, it was added to the stash box. I know the 'T' block as another way, which I much prefer and actually have plans for that will be using the wonderful FQ bundle 'Summer Breeze II' that my SIL gave me.


The next NYB block for the quilt along. This is going to be a zinger quilt and even though not my usual color and work, I am really loving this. Not sure how to quilt this, may have it done by a local long armer when the time comes. Or I may get inspired and hand quilt this. This NewFO will certainly be next year's UFO.


The next block for the Blogger's BOM. Just using some of my colorful scraps from the bin with scrap muslin with these. Another NewFO that will be next year's UFO .


And I have received some lovelies in the mail. Flo of Butterfly Quilting sent me the wonderful snip bag with pincushion. Pat of Pattilousquilts sent me this cute coffee fabric mug rug - using at my computer stand. Laura of Fun with This and That was my partner for the Journal Cover swap and sent me the most wonderful journal cover in my favorite color (blue). Love the voile little kids and the accent blue stripe fabric. With a steno book and pens - it is popped right into my Quilt Guild tote as my planner - on the quilt planning committee, so will be used!

400!!


I have just been so swamped with cleaning and clearing and meeting quilting obligations and our quilt guild program and preparations for April and May blogging surprise fun and another furnace fire and ordering the NEW Ghastlies - phew - that I hardly noticed until someone kicked me. Numbers, oh you sweet,dear people have made me just blush. Look - 400 + in just a year and a half! How can I say thank you to make my special number?


Well, with some 'Friendship' by Howard Marcus for Moda paired with some Bella Black. One set for my USA neighbors and one set for my lovely international neighbors. Just my way of thanking all of you in blogging friendship. Just let me know in the comments if you would like your name in the draw - and who wouldn't as this is gorgeous. Winners announce April 1st!

CLOSING THOUGHT

With all this rearranging, clearing that has actually made more of a mess, workmen fixing my furnace, noise, business - my poor furries are be-muddled to say the least - sweet Bella mostly hides in my bedroom.


But this is how we are finding poor Moe - squeezed into the tightest of places. Hey he's got taste, that's a Fat Quarter Shop box!

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon
