Progress on 9-Patch and Winner
This seems like it's been a long week, that could partly be because I've been suffering with migraine headaches for a few days. This usually means I haven't been drinking enough water. It's easy to forget how much water I've had or not had in a day, most of the times it's not enough. My migraine went away for my Sat stitcher's meeting...WAHOO. We had a fun time as this was the first meeting since out Christmas lunch. Our hostess (Andree) made a yummy beef vegetable soup and we had several kinds of cheese and an assortment of crackers. Gillian brought a delicious cake made with orange marmalade and whip cream. Agnes went to Korea and Japan in late Nov and brought back some wonderful books and fabrics which she showed us at the Dec meeting. We spent lots of time drooling over what she purchased. We found a really cute sewing case in one of her books and fell in love with the appliqué and of course the fabrics. Agnes generously offered to make each of us a kit and she would show us how to make the sewing case since the instructions were all written in Japanese. I'm very excited about our little project and can't wait to get started.
I've been working with the 9 patches which Darlene and I have been exchanging. Here is my progress so far. I discovered that I'm a short on the number of 9 patches and lucky me Darlene is still game for a few more exchanges....I'm so excited....I love how this quilt is coming together. I hope to have enough to make this quilt about 55"x 63" (I think). I've also finished the punchneedle "wings of love", still need to make it into something and I'm starting on my second block of Polka Dot Girls.
What a fantastic group of bloggers....thanks for stopping by to visit my little part of the world. I didn't have the energy to write everyone's name on a piece of paper for the draw, so I did it the high tech geeky thing by using a on-line random number generator. It's pretty simple and does the job quickly. Here it goes....drum roll please......#34 was selected. Pam please send me your snail mail address and I'll get your package of goodies sent off to you.
