Hi everyone, just a quick hello this week. My big plan was to get into my fabric stash, but Iíve spent most of my spare time finishing the directions for the State Block of Tennessee and the directions for making the most delightful Christmas Cards, using a quilting technique. Iíll be posting these articles in the next week or two.
So this week coming, Iím definitely going to get into my fabrics and sort them out. I really need to because Iím looking for a certain fabric and I know itís in there somewhere, but simply canít find it!
So each piece of fabric will come out, get refolded and placed in color order. Donít know how long the tidy stash will last Ė probably until my next creative frenzy Ė usually not too far away!!
I posted an article last week about my favorite quilting tool. Doing this big spring clean of my sewing room has made me ponder about my most important and favorite quilting tool. I wasnít thinking about rotary cutters and mats and the like, but more like simple things that make my creativity flow naturally. Go and have a read of the article Ė hereís the link:http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art23984.asp
As a follow-up from there, I also posted a question on the Quilting Forum about which is your most important quilting tool. There have been some interesting responses and Iím sure some of you would like to add to those. So hereís the link to that forum: subject:http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=postlist&Board=43
I think Iíll BE OVER this cleaning thing by the end of this week Ė my attention span is not long generally speaking, and when it comes to cleaning Ė well, itís pretty well non-existent!!
So to my gift for you this week:
Another Christmas knick-knack for you to put together. Itís from Sugarplum Stitches and itís titled Ginger Angel. Have fun! Here's the link to this gorgeous stitchery.
I do hope this newsletter brings a big smile to your face and your fingers itching to get busy!
Till next week,
Cheerio for now and have fun quilting!
