I have the BEST friends!!! A few weeks ago, I gave both Susie and Shirley (my wonderful quilting friends) each a jar of my homemade garlic dill pickles and today when we met for lunch, Susie (the sweetie) brings my jar back filled with the most delicious black and white fabrics you can even imagine...........sooooo fun!!! I'd say that's a pretty good trade, huh???? Just look at them!! I wonder what I can make next to give her?? :DYum! Now to decide what to make.................although my head has been spinning lately with the possibilities for more mug rugs, I must admit. I've been itching to get back to them, but first I knew that I had to make the projects I had planned for the Christmas Swap. I knew that they were involved and more than a few days work and that I should get them out of the way before I really became involved in the little (immediate gratification type) things. So, this weekend and yesterday, I finished them:
Now, to pray that my swap partner likes them. (Fingers and toes crossed!!) I'm also sending the scraps and a charm pack of the same fabrics so she can make herself a little quilt to match if she wants.
Oh...remember me telling you about the secret little quilt I made and couldn't show before she got it? Well, here it is and I hope you think it's as funny as I do. My partner likes blue and I AM NOT a blue girl by any stretch of the imagination, but I thought I did okay using some, but still adding my humorous touch. What do you think?
The theme was "fussy cut" and I think I did good! Lots of fussy cut stuff in that quilt and it's smaller than it looks at 8 1/2 by 11 1/2 inches. Check out the cool binding! Fun, fun!!!
So.......that's it for now!! I'm going to PLAY for a few days making mug rugs! I sure hope I can come up with some good ones?? Send out some creative vibes for me, okay???
