My card is ready - I'm playig along for fun, you 'peeps' get the prizes. Now you can mark your card any way you like, we just suggested sewing buttons on your squares as a way of finishing off your mini quilt. And of course you all get to mark you center square - that's a free spot.

I - PIN(S)
O - TURTLE(S)
N - SCISSORS
N - BULLDOG
Be sure you visit Tonya, Marcia and Snoodles for their call words. And Marcia has set up a tab where she will list Bingo Winners so you can check. Tonya has the rules and prize list for the various types of 'bingo' - you really should check that out, because even though you don't get up, down, across, there are other 'bingos'. If you should get a BINGO - **please let Tonya know** (comment on her blog or e-mail her) as she has the master list and linked cards to double check.
I will be sharing my sewing space today with my SIL, so I plan on playing with my string blocks. Luckily my old phone book was 6.5" wide so I made 6" squares (to trim the glue edge). I Used a 2.5" string down corner to corner and then 1.5" and smaller strings on either side - and my orphan triangles on the corners. Then slice that center strip corner to corner to have two triangles. I then cut my lovely black Kona into 6" squares, cut corner to corner and then sewed to strings for lovely HSTs. Pressed and trimmed to 5.5" square.
